Steve: Yeah, sure does. Especially when those little ones come around with their plates.
Kayla: You know what? We should do this every Christmas. Now that our kids are grown.
Steve: I was thinking before... when I saw those kids from the shelter... how I wished I could go back in time and really be there for our kids. You know, when it mattered.
Kayla: It matters now.
Steve: I know. But I missed so much. But I am trying hard to focus on our lives now and how good things are. I'm really grateful for that.
Kayla: Well, you know, this isn't a do-over or anything, but... you're gonna have a grandchild.
Steve: I know. And I am definitely sticking around for that. I'm not going anywhere. Ever again.
Claire: See, here's a good one. Lots of cool amenities.
Ciara: Yeah, and it's only two blocks from campus.
Claire: Yeah, I mean, would you wanna do that? Next semester, I mean.
Ciara: Sure. I mean, if my mom's okay with it. It'll be fun. Sharing an apartment.
Claire: I know, right? [Sighs] Look who's still here. Helping out and making sure that your aunt and uncle see what a hard little worker bee she is. You know, I just don't know what Joey sees in that girl.
Jade: That was fun. I didn't think I'd like it that much, but it really makes me feel good helping people out. You didn't think that I had it in me, did you?
Joey: I didn't say that. I thought you were great. Especially with the kids.
Jade: Thanks. I thought you were too.
Joey: Are you sure you're not pushing too hard? Do you wanna sit down for a bit?
Jade: No, I'm fine. I like it when you worry about me though. I mean, about the baby.
Joey: Hey, I'm not a jerk. Of course I worry about you--
Claire: So we just put the rest of the tables away.
Ciara: Yeah, thought there would be leftovers, but there isn't.
Joey: Nice of the Hernandez guys to leave the club open for us.
Ciara: Yeah, passing out all that food made me hungry.
Jade: I have to go to the bathroom. You know how it is when you're pregnant.
Ciara: What did she mean by that? I mean, how would any of us know that? Joey, what are you going to do with this child-woman?
Coco: Honey, if you're writing to Santa, big waste of time. He doesn't visit prisons.
Annabelle: I'm writing my mom, not that it's any of your business.
Coco: Ooh! I'll bet I know what it says. "Dearest mommy, merry Christmas. Why didn't you bring me that dolly?"
Sheila: Or it should say, "please bring me some cookies and a pony for my BFFs coco and Sheila."
Annabelle: Stop! Give that back!
Coco: Oh! Oh!
Annabelle: It's mine!
Coco: "Hope has made everything so much better in here. These two horrible women were attacking me and--"
Sheila: Horrible? Was she talking about us?
Coco: Maybe we should show her how horrible we can be.
Annabelle: No! Stop! Please! Stop!
Hope: Hey! Knock it off!
Chad: Hey, Gabi.
Gabi: Been trying to reach you. I called you last night.
Chad: Yeah, I went-- I was out on a walk.
Gabi: All night?
Chad: Yeah, I lost track of time, and I didn't have my phone.
Gabi: It's okay. I'm just glad you're okay. I just--uh... all right. There's something that you need to know. I just don't know how to tell you.
Chad: Abigail is alive.
JJ: Okay, yeah, that's good. That's disgusting.
Rafe: We're working on Christmas here, all right? Hope's in prison. At least I'm trying to do something festive.
JJ: You talk to her?
Rafe: No, not since last night when her appeal was denied. Merry freakin' Christmas.
JJ: I'm sorry.
Rafe: [Sighs] I'm the one that's sorry. All right? How are you? How are things? How's it going with Gabi? What's happened?
JJ: She found out I was keeping a secret from her.
Rafe: Another one?
JJ: This one's different. It was family. It wasn't my choice to keep it.
Rafe: Okay. Did you tell her that?
JJ: She doesn't wanna hear it from me. Not while she's spending all her time with Chad.
Rafe: Chad? As in Chad DiMera, Chad?
JJ: Yeah. Surprised me too.
Abigail: Hi, Gabi.
Gabi: You're alive?
Gabi: I can't believe this. You're...[Stammers] You already knew?
Chad: I found out last night.
Gabi: Oh, my God. This is amazing. This is a miracle. This is a Christmas miracle.
Gabi: Thank God. Oh, my God. If you could see your cough,
Joey: Oh, so Jade's a child-woman and you two are what? Totally mature women of the world?
Claire: Joey, you didn't answer the question.
Joey: Because it was a really stupid one!
Ciara: No, it wasn't. We know that you're having a baby with her, but--
Claire: But what happens after that? Are you gonna get married? Live together, what?
Joey: Look, as fun as it is having you two monitor my every move, telling me when and how to breathe, I'm not going to share. Ciara: That means you're gonna marry her.
Joey: No, no, that means that I'm not gonna share anything with you about Jade.
Claire: Okay, and that is a really dumb mistake, Joey, because we not only care about you, but we're great resources. You know, we could help you out here a lot.
Ciara: I mean, not that you'd listen.
Claire: No, of course you wouldn't listen, 'cause you're a total advice-hole.
Jade: You ever tried using real words, Claire?
Claire: Excuse me, Jade, that is a real world. It means the inability and/or unwillingness to take solid advice when you need it, which is exactly what your baby daddy's problem is!
Jade: And would that advice Joey won't take, by any chance, be to dump me?
Ciara: Well, he can't exactly do that now, can he?
Jade: What is that supposed to mean?
Claire: Like you can't figure it out?
Jade: You know what I've figured out? That the two of you don't have lives, so you intend on ruining mine. And not that you deserve to know, but Joey is not trapped! He can do whatever he wants about me and my baby, and that includes dumping me. And if that's what he decides to do, then I will raise this kid on my own. And all of you can go to hell!
Hope: I said get away from her! Leave her alone. Get away from her! You okay?
Coco: We were just about to give our new bestie here her Christmas present.
Hope: Why don't you just move along instead?
Sheila: Why don't you just mind your business?
Hope: Annabelle's my friend so it makes it my business.
Coco: I am so tired of your princess attitude. You think you own the place because Chille has your back? Well... but she can't protect you all the time.
Sheila: That's right.
Hope: I'm not afraid of you. Annabelle, get out of here.
Annabelle: No, hope, please, come with me.
Sheila: Little too late for that, girlfriend.
Hope: Just go. I'll be fine.
Coco: See you soon, newbie. After we share a little holiday cheer with your pal, we'll be paying you another visit. Oh, looks like the numbers are not in your favor, princess.
Sheila: At all.
Gabi: I thought that I would never see you again.
[Thomas cries through monitor]
Abigail: I'll go check on him.
Chad: No, I got it.
Gabi: I don't-- I don't understand. How did you survive that plane crash?
Abigail: I wasn't on the plane.
Gabi: Yeah, but they--
Abigail: I know. I know, but I just... I wanted everyone to believe I was dead. I did. After everything that happened with Ben, I just... I was out of my mind. I was completely traumatized. I got really scared that I was gonna be in a facility for the rest of my life. I just--I didn't want Thomas to deal with that. I didn't want Chad to have to deal with that.
Gabi: You must have been so scared. Abigail, why didn't you come to me for help?
Abigail: I didn't want you to have to deal with that either.
Gabi: You were protecting me? You were my best friend, Gabi.
Gabi: Abigail. When we lost you, Chad was barely holding on. And the only thing that kept him going was knowing that Thomas needed him. He loved you so much. And when...when he lost you, he was--it shattered him. You know?
Abigail: Thank goodness you were around to help him pick up the pieces.
Coming up on
"look! Famous people!"
Jade: Oh, I'm sorry.
Kayla: Oh! No, it's fine. It's fine. Listen, Jade, I just-- I just wanna thank you for helping out today. I hope it didn't tire you out.
Steve: You wanna sit down?
Jade: No, I'm not tired. I'm just upset.
Kayla: What happened?
Jade: Nothing that hasn't happened before. It's just getting to me more than usual today.
Steve: Wanna talk about it?
Jade: It's just some stuff the girls said. You know, Joey's bodyguards. They don't approve of me. Big surprise. They actually hate me.
Kayla: Claire and Ciara?
Jade: They think I'm using this baby to trap Joey.
Steve: Hey. You know, they've said that before. They're probably gonna say it again.
Jade: But it's not true! Joey and I were in love, and this...happened. It was an accident.
Kayla: Of course. But you need to understand, Jade, that Claire and Ciara are family, and you've seen a little bit about how the Bradys work. The upside, but the downside is that everybody's all involved in everybody's life. And that's probably not necessarily a good thing, but it really is out of love and being incredibly loyal.
Steve: You know, Jade, it was weird for me at first because I didn't come from much family. But having the Bradys on your side, you'll find out, there's nothing like it.
Ciara: Look, Jade, it's so done, okay?
Jade: What's so done?
Ciara: You and Joey are gonna have a kid together, and it's not for us to judge how it happened. The main thing is that we're gonna be there for you and for the baby.
Claire: Well, I mean, the baby, for sure.
Jade: No, it's okay. I get it. Family first. And this baby is gonna be your family. While it's cool to be part of the Bradys, I'm not part of that, so why would you be there for me?
Ciara: Jade, come on-
Jade: Stand down, Ciara. And Claire, I guess I'm just gonna have to all this family attention, the good and the bad. Kayla explained to me that family is everything to you guys.
Ciara: That's right. And speaking of family and Christmas, I would like to go to mass today and say a prayer for my mom. I went to see her this morning with Shawn, and I'm really worried about her.
Sheila: It's survival of the fittest in here, bitch.
Hope: Don't touch me.
Sheila: And we've decided that you don't get to survive.
Chille: What'd I say about hands on hope?
Chille: I don't wanna listen to your lame-ass excuse. Just go! Get the hell out of here.
Hope: Thank you.
Chille: Thank your friend. I was in the middle of the Christmas pageant and she interrupted me. I've taken people down for less than that.
Hope: You did the right thing.
Chille: We will talk later. But right now, I gotta get back to the show. I don't want to miss my solo. All right?
jingle all the way
Hope: Thank you.
Hope: Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Abigail: Every time I look at you, all I see is you kissing my husband.
Abigail: I know I have no right to be upset. I don't, but I just...
Gabi: Just say it.
Abigail: I saw you kissing Chad right here. Right here in the house that I used to live in. I mean... how long has it been going on? How long did you guys wait?
Gabi: You're the one who told JJ.
Abigail: No, that has nothing to do with this.
Gabi: What Chad and I--
Abigail: What do you have? Do you love him?
Gabi: Abigail, you were dead. I mean, wow long was Chad supposed to wait? If we had any idea you were alive, this would've never happened.
Abigail: Are you sure about that?
Chad: That's enough, Abigail. I would have never looked at another woman if you wouldn't have made us all think that you were dead. This is not Gabi's fault. If you want somebody to blame, blame yourself.
Kayla: I know it's scary to have your mom in a place like that.
Steve: But is there more to it than that? Is something going on?
Ciara: I think so. But she won't admit it. She acts like everything's fine. But if it weren't, would she tell me?
Steve: Probably not.
[Cell phone ringing]
Claire: Sorry, um.... hi, Theo, what's up? Yeah, no, I'm still at club TBD. And I have some good news. I actually asked Ciara about sharing an apartment next semester off campus and she was totally thrilled. So the three of us are going to be roomies.
Annabelle: I can't do this anymore.
Hope: Yes, you can. You're a hell of a lot stronger than you think you are, Annabelle.
Annabelle: You heard them. They're gonna come back for me.
Hope: And we're gonna be ready. You got me and Hattie and Chille, okay? You're gonna be fine.
Coco: We're never going to be able to get to hope with Chille around.
Sheila: You think you know someone. She was our friend.
Coco: Well, guess we're just gonna have to make her see our point of view.
Sheila: Mm-hmm. And good thing we know how to be convincing. Come on.
Hope: Gonna be okay.
Gabi: She wasn't trying to hurt us.
Abigail: No, Gabi, he's right. This is my fault. I left. And I put him and you and my whole family through hell. I did. I was so messed up. I'm sorry. I really... I told myself I wanted you to move on.
Gabi: I should go. Before I say something wrong. You guys have a lot--
Gabi: It's okay. This is amazing. We have our Abby back.
JJ: So now you know.
Gabi: This was the big secret, the one you were keeping from me.
JJ: I'm sorry.
Abigail: I begged him not to tell anyone.
Gabi: So how did Dario know?
Chad: Dario knew, too? André, your grandmother, JJ, anybody else know my wife wasn't dead?
JJ: Can we go somewhere? To talk?
Gabi: Yeah. Seeing you is the best Christmas present.
Abigail: I spent the night in Thomas's room last night. I was hoping you'd come in.
Chad: Went for a walk.
Chad: Trying to.
Abigail: How are you feeling?
Chad: Angry for what you made me go through. Overjoyed that my wife is standing in front of me. After I thought I'd never see her again.
Abigail: I'm sure that that's gotta be really confusing.
Chad: Confusing? It's tearing me apart. What do I do? Do I just pretend like the last half a year didn't happen? We pick up where we left off? Share a bed, raise our son together?
Abigail: I think that we can get there.
Chad: I'm glad you do. I'm not sure I can.
Claire: Great. Okay, see you soon, Theo. Bye. So Theo is thrilled that we're all gonna be roomies next semester.
Ciara: Claire, I, um...
Claire: What? Is there a problem?
Ciara: No. I just... I didn't know that Theo was part of this equation.
Claire: Oh, sorry, I guess I just forgot to mention it. That's cool with you, though, right?
Ciara: Yeah. Yeah, sure.
Kayla: Let's all go to St. Luke's and say a prayer for your mom.
Ciara: Yes, great idea.
Jade: That's terrific. I'll meet you back at home.
Claire: Okay, bye, Jade.
Joey: Claire, chill. Jade, don't go, just... come with us.
Jade: I don't think that's a good idea.
Rafe: Hey, guys.
Joey: Hey, Rafe.
Kayla: Hey, Rafe.
Rafe: Hey, well, okay. Merry Christmas to y'all.
Steve: Merry Christmas.
Kayla: You too.
Rafe: I got a present for my brother, he around?
Steve: I haven't see him. We just got finished serving Christmas dinner to the homeless.
Rafe: Oh, good.
Steve: Nice of your dad to let us do it.
Rafe: Well, he is nice on occasion.
Ciara: We're gonna go pray for mom if you want to come.
Rafe: Yeah, there's nothing more I'd rather do. Gotta tell you, I'm about ready to break her out of that damn place.
Steve: We all feel that way. But we can't do that. We have to be smart about this.
Rafe: Yeah, I know. No matter how hard this is on her, and on all of us, your mom is strong and she's smart and she's brave and she can handle this. I know she can.
Joey: Hey, wait. Don't listen to Claire. Come on. You've had a good day with my family for the most part, right?
Joey: So spend the rest of the evening with us. Come to St. Luke's with us, please? It's really important that we're all together.
Jade: I know it's important to you. Just like I know how even talking about hope upsets you. Brings up all sorts of emotions.
Joey: It's like... this baby... is a new chance. A fresh start.
Jade: It is. For both of us.
JJ: I hated keeping the truth about Abigail from you. It's just I didn't know what else to do.
Gabi: Your sister put is in a terrible situation.
JJ: And I'd do anything to keep her safe.
Gabi: I understand that, but you could have trusted me.
JJ: I know, Abigail swore--
Gabi: It's not about her. It's about us. And how you promised me the last time that I could trust you.
JJ: I'm sorry.
Gabi: I'm not.
Gabi: No, what you did, keeping Abigail secret, yeah, it created a lot of complications, but actually, it opened my eyes. I'm sorry, JJ, but I just-- I don't think we're meant to be together.
JJ: How can you say that? We're great together.
Gabi: What we are is a lot of work.
JJ: I'm willing to put in as much work as it takes.
Gabi: I'm not. I'm not anymore. Look, I thought I could get past this whole Miami thing, that I could just see it as just one big mistake that happened one time.
JJ: It was, it was.
Gabi: But I can't stop thinking about it, JJ. I can't get it out of my head. And I realized this now. It's probably why I jumped to conclusions when I found out you had a secret. I don't completely trust you.
JJ: Did you realize this before or after you kissed my sister's husband?
Chad: You know, if you would have told me a year ago, that I could have had you back, I would have done anything. Anything.
Abigail: I'm here now, Chad.
Chad: And then there's a huge part of me that wants to just take you in my arms, carry you upstairs to our bedroom, and never let you out of my sight again.
Abigail: I know that it's not that easy.
Chad: Do you? Do you really think you understand what it was like to live without you?
Abigail: I'm so sorry.
Chad: I know you are. And I know you suffered, but it didn't have to be this way.
Abigail: I really-- I thought that it did.
Chad: I would've helped you.
Abigail: But I didn't wanna be a burden to you.
Chad: A burden? Do you know what a burden is, Abby? Mourning the love of your wife. Holding your crying son knowing that he's gonna grow up without a mother. That's a burden.
Abigail: I thought that--
Chad: No, we vowed to love each other in sickness and in health. That was my responsibility. Not a burden, and I would have done it for you gladly. I would've stood by you. No matter what.
Abigail: And what about now? Will you stand by me now?
Gabi: You're going to come down on me for kissing Chad after what you did?
JJ: I didn't mean it like that.
Gabi: Of course you did. No, it's all about forgiveness until I do something.
JJ: No, I don't care about the kiss. I care about Chad pulling you away from me.
Gabi: Chad and I are friends.
JJ: You know it's a lot more than that.
Gabi: I can't believe you're worried about Chad and me when Abigail's back.
JJ: So you're gonna step aside and let Chad and Abigail get back together? You have feelings for him, I know you do.
Gabi: Even if I do, you want to know why we got close in the first place? Because he's open and honest. And he doesn't keep secrets, JJ.
JJ: I won't lie to you again. Gabi, we can work this out. Now that Abigail is back, everything can go back to the way it was.
Gabi: No, it's never gonna be the way it was. JJ, we're... we're just not in sync anymore. And I don't think we're ever gonna be.
Chad: You, now, you're my son's mother.
Abigail: And your wife.
Chad: Who was declared legally dead.
Abigail: Does that mean I'm not your wife anymore?
Chad: I don't know. [Stammers]
Abigail: Look, it's really hard to get past, I get it. Okay, look, JJ, he reminded me of something. He reminded me that I did the exact same thing that my father did. We lived through thinking he was dead. And it was awful. My God, it was horrible. And that's why I can look at you and say I'm so sorry. But he came back. And so did I.
Chad: And I'm grateful that you're alive.
Abigail: Chad, do you not-- we are supposed to be together. I mean, do you not see that? Can you--can you not tell? I mean, I was getting ready to walk out of that room and I was never coming back but somehow, something caused you to walk in there the exact moment that I was there. And you can call it fate or destiny or God, whatever, I don't care. It doesn't matter. But what matters is you found me. So do you see what I'm saying? We...we are supposed to be together. And it doesn't mean that it's gonna be easy. But we've gotta figure out a way to make it work, and I... I was really scared. And I didn't believe in our love. Whatever this...thing is that we have, but I was wrong, okay? I'm not going anywhere. And I need you to trust me. Please, I'm not going anywhere. I love you.
Chad: I love you. I love you. I'd do anything for you and Thomas. But can I get through this? I don't know. I don't know when I'm going to stop being mad at you, Abby. I don't know... I don't know if I can trust that you're not gonna run away every time something gets tough again.
Abigail: So what does that mean for us?
Chad: All I know... I don't wanna let you walk out that door.
Joey: Looks like we're bonding in a new and weird way, aren't we?
Jade: Yeah, we've been through some pretty unique bonding experiences in the past. This baby brings it to an entirely different level. I'm glad you're being so cool about it now.
Joey: You know, I meant what I said. About a fresh start. I...I could live with myself after what I did to Ava. But there's something... something so balanced about a new life. Not that anything makes what I did to Ava okay, but it's just... where there's life there's hope, right?
Joey: But if we're going to make this work, you're gonna have to learn to live with my family. They're part of the deal, like it or not.
Joey: I don't know how this is all gonna fall into place but it will. The Bradys believe in miracles. Especially this time of year. So let's go to church, and hope that something good will happen. For us. For all of us. Okay?
Jade: I'd like that.
Kayla: We should get going or we're gonna miss the mass. Here you go.
Shane: Oh, great, there you are. I've been looking for you. I need to talk to you and Steve too. I went by the house and the pub looking for you, and someone told me you were out here running some kind of soup kitchen out of the club today.
Steve: We were.
Rafe: Okay, well, you found us, what's up?
Shane: Ah... do you think we could...
Steve: Yeah. Kids, why don't you go on ahead? We'll catch up to you.
Claire: Okay, bye.
Ciara: See you soon.
Shane: Kayla, you staying?
Kayla: Are you kidding me? You burst in here with some kind of important news? I'm not going anywhere.
Shane: Of course, I understand. And you're right. What I have to say is huge. Something's happened, and it might just save hope's life.
Hope: Hey, Chille. Oh, is that... picture from the pageant? I heard you have quite a voice. Well, I heard you... listen, what I'm trying to say is that I... just wanted to thank you again for, um, helping us out. If you ever need anything, I just wanted you to know that all you have to do is just ask... Chille? Chille? Chille? Oh, my God. Kids, are you ready to get this potty started?
JJ: Do you think that you and Chad are in sync?
Gabi: I'm not gonna talk about Chad.
JJ: Of course you don't wanna talk about him. He just got his wife back.
Gabi: I'm very, very happy that Abigail is back. But it doesn't mean that they're going to pick up right where they left off.
JJ: You're not giving up on him. You're actually going to try to take him from my sister.
Gabi: No. I'm not saying that. I'm saying I don't know what the future holds for Abigail and Chad. But what I do know is you and I don't have a future.
Chad: Is he asleep?
Chad: Abby... with you being alive, I don't know where I stand. But I know that I'm gonna need some time.
Abigail: Yeah, no, I can... I can stay at my mom's.
Chad: No. No, you'll stay here. I don't want any more running... hiding... lying. Okay, all I want is for us to figure things out. Together.
Abigail: I want that, too.
Ortiz: I need a lockdown. Repeat, lock down the facility. We've got an inmate down.
Annabelle: Oh, my God. They killed her? What do we do?
Hope: Stay calm.
Annabelle: But you know what this means.
Steve: Well, Donovan, you always had a flair for the dramatic.
Rafe: Hold on a sec. It's about hope? What is it?
Shane: Well, it just might be that hope didn't kill anyone.
Steve: Doesn't make any sense.
Kayla: That's not possible.
Shane: It's Stefano. Seems like the old son of bitch might still be alive.
