Abigail: You nervous?
Chad: Hey. God, you look-- you look, uh, stunning.
Abigail: Thank you. You don't look so bad yourself. Hey, don't be nervous. Okay? Your speech is perfect. You're just gonna start talking and they're just gonna pull out their wallets and they'll be begging you to take their money.
Chad: Yeah, I'm not nervous about the fundraiser or the speech. Um, I'm nervous about right now.
Abigail: What do you mean "right now"?
Chad: I gotta talk to you about something and I know you don't wanna talk about it, but I gotta-- we gotta talk about it.
Abigail: What is it?
Chad: My feelings for her. Gabi.
Gabi: This cannot be happening tonight!
Dario: What's wrong?
Gabi: Okay, the lights in my bathroom have been flickering for a week and they just blew.
Dario: All the bulbs?
Gabi: Yeah, every single one.
Dario: Well, go try another bathroom.
Gabi: Seriously? I mean, Rafe's bathroom makes me look like the walking dead and there's not even a vanity mirror in there.
Dario: So go replace the bulbs in your bathroom.
Gabi: Dario, could you just please? You know, you're--you're--
Dario: I'm--I'm--I'm what? A guy? You know it's funny how you think you can do anything your big brothers can do, except when it comes to the dirty work.
Gabi: It's not because you're a guy, it's because you're taller and even in my heels I can't reach the sockets.
Dario: No, I'm sorry. There is no way I am messing up my suit. I gotta get to the club make sure everything's gonna go perfect.
Gabi: Oh, yeah? Are you--are you afraid that you're gonna get some dust on your jacket and then Abigail won't think you're perfect?
Dario: Go grab a ladder. Get off my case.
Gabi: [Laughs] Look at you, Dario! You're a nervous wreck!
Dario: The club has never hosted an event like this before. I wanna make sure nothing goes wrong.
Gabi: See, I don't think you care about the club as much as you do about impressing Abigail.
Dario: Look who's talking about impressing. The only reason you're freaking out about bad lighting is because you want to impress Chad.
Eric: I'm sorry.
Jennifer: For what?
Eric: Kissing you.
Jennifer: I'm not complaining.
Eric: I shouldn't have.
Jennifer: Why? You shouldn't have what?
Eric: I can't... want you. Us... I can't love you.
Claire: Jesus, Ciara! What the hell?
Claire: What are you doing here? You said that you were going to grandma's!
Ciara: I-I-I was. And then I real--I--
Claire: Okay, wait, wait, you what? You forgot your favorite pillow?
Ciara: You know what, Claire? I live here! And what the hell are you guys doing out in the living room?
Claire: Okay, excuse me, but we thought we had the whole place to ourselves. Would you rather us do it in the backseat of a car?
Ciara: Are you freaking kidding me?! You want me to decide where you guys do it now?! I don't know, how about you guys don't do it at all?!
Dario: Why you doing that in here?
Gabi: Because someone was so worried they'd mess up their suit they couldn't even help their little sister change a light bulb.
Dario: [Speaks Spanish] Don't worry. I'm sure you're not gonna scare Chad away if your lipstick isn't not perfect.
Gabi: You know, you're so wrong about Chad. I'm actually--I'm getting ready for a date that I wanna look presentable for.
Dario: When did you decide to go with a date?
Gabi: So now you care? Abigail's cousin Eli. She kinda played matchmaker and forced us.
Dario: Probably so you could steer clear of her husband.
Gabi: No, there's nothing there. I've already let Chad go.
Dario: [Laughs] Yeah, right.
Gabi: No, it's true. I've decided to work on other opportunities. Like getting my business off the ground.
Dario: Hey, that is good and I am so proud of you for giving another man a chance.
Gabi: What about you? I mean, you told Abigail you were showing up with a date. So how are you gonna explain flying solo?
Dario: I'll figure something out. Besides, I don't really need to worry about what I'm gonna tell Abigail since I need to move on from her anyway.
Gabi: All right, well, how can you "move on" from something that never was?
Dario: Like you and Chad ever had a real relationship?
Gabi: Oh, we were going to and it would've happened--
Dario: Until his wife came back from the dead.
Gabi: Well, at least I'm not moving on from a secret crush.
Dario: Better in secret than if the whole town knows about it.
Gabi: Okay, yes, yes. We both have to move on from hopeless situations.
Dario: I'm gonna try. Are you?
Abigail: Well, it's not that I don't wanna talk about it, we're already really late.
Chad: I know, but the party is gonna--can wait. This--this cannot. Please. Um... when I-- when Gabi and I were kidnapped I told you I didn't remember everything because of the hypothermia. It wasn't, um... really true. I-- I remembered how I felt in that moment-- in that life or death moment, and I-- I knew that Gabi and I were still in love with each other.
[Abigail clears throat]
Chad: And I know this hurts. And I'm sorry.
Abigail: So, um...what? Are you, um-- are you leaving me for Gabi? Is that what you needed to tell me? 'Cause you wanna be with her and not me?
Chad: No, I want to get over...
Chad: Gabi. And I wanna be the husband and the father that I know you and Thomas deserve.
Abigail: I don't understand--
Chad: I've been... holding in these feelings for Gabi and I feel like I've been living this lie and it's eating me up. And... look, I-I-- I want to continue to build our life together.
Abigail: How, though? I mean, how do we build a life together when you love someone else?
Chad: I'm gonna-- I need to cut her out of my life.
Abigail: You're serious?
Chad: I am. And it has to be done as soon as possible.
Abigail: Are you gonna tell her that?
Chad: I'm gonna find an opening at the party tonight and I will tell her everything that needs to happen. What? Say something.
Abigail: I mean, Chad, even if you tell her that you-- [Clears throat] That you need to stay away from her, if you really love her--
Chad: I love-- I love you.
Chad: I love you.
Chad: Hey, and I know that with enough time and distance... my love for her will fade, but, Abby, my love for you is forever.
Jennifer: You say you can't want me... but that kiss proves you do.
Eric: I shouldn't have.
Jennifer: No, and I know. You say that you're never gonna be able to heal from all this. That you're never gonna be able to love someone again, but I know better. I do. 'Cause you're gonna come back to Salem and you're not gonna be bale to help yourself. You're going to choose life. I know you are. And I'm gonna be there. I'm gonna be waiting for you.
Claire: It's not like we need your permission!
Ciara: I never said you did.
Claire: You know, I am not surprised that you're totally freaked about me and Theo taking our relationship to the next level. Hell, you're probably already plotting to break us up.
Ciara: I am not, Claire.
Claire: Oh, come on. Do you think I'm an idiot? It's not like I don't know that you still have feelings for him.
Ciara: I can't believe you're using that against me. I told you that as a friend.
Claire: Oh, right, a friend who's dating the guy that you like but were too messed up to admit it when he liked you.
Ciara: I know I messed up, Claire, okay?
Claire: No, no, no, no. You may know it, but you have not accepted it. You know what? Maybe that's the reason you came back here. Just to try and ruin our night!
Ciara: I had no idea that you and Theo were gonna be here, okay? And I sure as hell didn't know that you guys were gonna be doing this!
Claire: Oh, jeez! It is none of your business what we were about to do! Bottom line, Theo is mine now and I'm gonna give him what he needs whether you like it or not. So if you don't mind, get the hell out of here!
Dario: Hello, wow. Mi hermanita es muy hermosa.
Gabi: Well, thanks to mi hermano for finally replacing the bulb in the bathroom.
Dario: Yeah, good brother would've done it when he was first asked.
Gabi: Well, a good sister wouldn't have been so mean to you knowing that you wanted something you couldn't have 'cause I know how that feels.
Dario: So you're saying we're both losers in love?
Gabi: Ehh... I'm saying we still got each other.
Dario: And ice cream.
Gabi: Right and ice cream, but a little more and I... probably would not fit in this dress.
Dario: Yeah, I was trying to find a way to make you smile again. I hate seeing you so sad.
Gabi: I'm not the only sad one, am I?
Dario: You know, I bet if we put our heads together, we could both be happy.
Abigail: So... you love me, and you love Gabi, but you want to cut her out of your life because... you don't want to love her?
Chad: No, I--no, I-- I-I... don't wanna lose you. Okay? I don't wanna lose you. And that is why I had to tell you everything. And I had to get everything out in the open so that hopefully... we can move-- we can move past this... together. And I know this is confusing and I'm confused, too, but-- baby, you gotta know that I only--I only fell for her when I thought that you were gone. I didn't know you were coming back. I didn't know you were coming back.
[Abigail clears throat] Okay? And, um... I thou-- I love you and I wanna spend the rest of my life with you and... not only are you my wife, you're my partner, you're my lover, and, Abby, you're my best friend.
Abigail: And what's a best friend if you can't share your deepest, darkest secrets, right?
Chad: I never wanted to hurt you.
Abigail: I gotta be honest, that, um... it hurts, but, um... [Clears throat] If we're being honest, I think I'm not surprised. I think I kinda knew all along that you still had feelings for Gabi, just I didn't wanna believe it. So I know that it sounds weird, everything you just said, but I think... I'll actually miss her friendship.
Chad: You don't have to.
Abigail: Well, I mean, me having her in my life makes it pretty hard to cut her out of yours. So, I think that it's good that you're gonna tell her tonight because I think the sooner the better for all of us.
Chad: Um... then I'll pull the car around.
Jennifer: Oh, hi, honey, Harold let me in. I was hoping you'd be-- wow! Look at you!
Jennifer: Oh, gosh. Oh, gosh. Baby, what's wrong? What's wrong? What happened? What happened? Oh, gosh. It's okay.
Maggie: Are you all right?
Ciara: Yeah, I'm fine.
Maggie: Seriously? You wanna talk about it?
Ciara: There's nothing to talk about. I don't even have any right to be upset.
Maggie: Well, you are upset whether you have a right to be or not. So... spill.
Ciara: I'm in love with Theo and he used to be in love with me, but I pushed him away then Claire came in and took him away and grabbed him for herself. Just when I had realized that... I had made a huge mistake.
Maggie: I see. Does Theo know that you know you made a big mistake?
Ciara: He doesn't have a clue. Julie told me to write a letter to him explaining how I feel since it's easier for him to understand things when it's written down.
Maggie: And what did he say when he read it?
Ciara: I never gave it to him. I went back to the apartment tonight to do that, but when I walked in, I saw that he and Claire were on the sofa.
Maggie: Ooh. Okay, I get the picture. So I assume you left.
Ciara: I tried to, but they saw me and Claire got mad and then Theo got embarrassed and it's just a big mess now.
Maggie: I'm sorry, honey.
Ciara: The thing is, I know Theo and he would never even consider going all the way if he wasn't fully committed.
Maggie: Well, if that is the case, then there's nothing you can do.
Ciara: But she doesn't even love him!
Maggie: And how do you know that?
Ciara: Because I know Claire. She's-- she likes him, but who wouldn't? I mean, to her it's just that he's hot and he's not high-maintenance and that he lets her have her way all the time.
Ciara: I mean, Theo should be with somebody that... doesn't treat him like a doormat and thinks that he's special and thinks about him all the time... and not just herself.
Maggie: Someone... like you?
Ciara: Yes. But it's too late. He's with Claire now and I just have to live with it. And when I say "live with it," I mean live with it because we all live in the same house together.
Ciara: Which makes this an even more completely messed up situation than it already is. [Sighs]
Abigail: Oh, God. Ugh. He says that he-- he wants to have a future with me, but I don't-- I really, I don't understand how he thinks he's gonna just suddenly, like, get over these feelings that he has for Gabi.
Jennifer: I don't think that it will be sudden, honey. But at least he's willing to do something before it's too late.
Abigail: Just so ironic. I feel like I can't even really be mad at him for telling me that he loves another woman because I'm the one that set the whole thing in motion.
Jennifer: Hey, I wouldn't go that far, honey.
Abigail: No, Mom, it's true. I-- when I left Shady Hills, I had no intention of ever coming back here. I was completely content with everyone thinking I was dead-- including Chad and Gabi.
Jennifer: Yeah, but be grateful that he's being honest.
Abigail: I am. It just... really hurts... just knowing--knowing that he loves her and to hear him just say it is--is-- out of everything we've been through I don't think anything has ever hurt that much. [Crying]
Jennifer: I know, honey. I know. I know.
Dario: If you and I work together, I bet we could break Chad and Abigail up. Be there to pick up the broken pieces.
Gabi: No, you can't be serious.
Dario: Why not? Chad would be free to be with you and Abigail could cry on my shoulder for as long as it took for her to fall for me.
Gabi: Dario, I doubt that would ever happen.
Dario: Thanks a lot.
Gabi: No, not because of you, because she loves Chad and I doubt she'd consider even being with anybody else.
Dario: Look, she might when she realize that I am better for her than DiMera. And if she were to find him in a compromising situation-- say with you--
Gabi: No, now I know you're not being serious. Come on, you cannot win Abigail's heart by scheming. You're too good of a guy to be going behind another guy's back, Dario.
Dario: What if that meant you ending up with Chad?
Ciara: I don't want Chad unless he chooses me and that will probably never happen.
Dario: Probably. So, you still think it's a possibility? H! Heartburn!
Maggie: Ciara, try not to be so judgmental of Claire. I mean, none of us are completely sure what another person is feeling.
Ciara: But I know what she's capable of. I've seen her in action.
Maggie: Okay, by "action" do you mean you've seen her be unfaithful to Theo?
Maggie: Has she told you that she doesn't love him?
Ciara: No, but still--
Maggie: Honey... I think you owe it to Claire to give her the benefit of the doubt, despite your own doubts she is family after all.
Ciara: You probably don't think I should give Theo the letter, do you?
Maggie: On the contrary. I think you've been unfair to Theo by not telling him how you feel. I mean, you wrote the letter for a reason. Don't you think he has a right to make up his own mind?
Maggie: Well, I'm sorry, sweetheart, but listen, um, I have to go. I would love to stay here and talk about this some more, but you need to think about what I said, okay?
Ciara: I will. Thank you.
Maggie: Ohh. Oh, you're a wonderful, young woman, Ciara. With such a good heart.
Maggie: And don't ever be afraid... of loving someone. Love you.
Claire: [Chuckles] So we're alone again. Thank God, right?
Claire: Why are you standing over there? Come here. So... feel like finishing what we started?
Theo: I don't know.
Claire: What do you mean you don't know?
Theo: It just doesn't feel like it did before. Maybe that's a good thing.
Claire: I mean, how is that a good thing?
Theo: I mean, like, maybe... Ciara walking in on us was a sign.
Claire: [Laughs] I think the only sign we need is a "do not enter" note on the door.
Theo: No, Claire, I didn't mean a sign like that, I meant... what if we're not as ready to be together... that way as we thought we were?
Claire: Okay, wow. So now you don't wanna have sex? What is up with you?
Jennifer: Honey, look at me. You're too upset right now. You don't need to go to a party right now.
Abigail: Oh, no.
Jennifer: I'll stay here with you.
Abigail: No... no, I know you're worried about me 'cause you think I'm gonna fall apart, but I-I won't. I'm a lot stronger than I was before. So, you know, whatever happens with me and Chad I-I can handle it.
Jennifer: If you say you can, I believe you.
Abigail: Yeah. He just--he had a lot of faith in me to tell me the way that he feels and so I wanna honor that and I'm not gonna let it break me.
Jennifer: You do realize when he cuts Gabi out of his life, that she's gonna be... less in your life also?
Abigail: I know. And all that's... upsetting, too, but, um... he's my husband.
Abigail: He's my family and I wanna do whatever he needs me to do...
Abigail: In order to get past his feelings for her.
Jennifer: That's right. That's most important.
Chad: Hey, Jennifer. I, uh--sorry, I didn't know you were here.
Abigail: I'm such a mess. [Chuckles] I'm gonna go fix my makeup and then we should probably get going. Okay.
Chad: I guess--I'm guessing she told you.
Jennifer: She told me. She told me that you put... your life with her and Thomas ahead of everything else and... she loves you so much.
Chad: I love her, too. And I'll do everything in my power to make her happy.
Theo: No, look, the timing just wasn't right. But it will be... soon.
Claire: Yeah. Yeah, no, I agree.
Theo: You do?
Claire: Yes, I do. The timing wasn't right. We wanted it to happen, but we rushed it, you know? We should've taken more time to plan. Make sure that everything was perfect.
Claire: Our first time should be magical. Like it is in the movies. You know, it definitely shouldn't happen here. Maybe we should go away somewhere. Maybe we should go to the green mountain lodge.
Theo: Okay, um... but I thought we were gonna take our time to plan it--
Claire: I know, but we are planning. We are. And since the lodge books up fast, I think we should call as soon as possible and make a reservation.
Theo: Okay, but isn't it out in the middle of nowhere?
Claire: [Laughs] Which makes it super romantic.
Theo: Claire, that-- that sounds--sounds good and all, but--
Claire: I know! I know! Here's what we'll do, okay? We'll take a road trip and we will make the lodge, like, our final destination. Yeah, so it's kind of like a metaphor for where we're taking our relationship. [Chuckles] Yeah, I am going to call right now. See how soon we can lock down a date. Oh, I can hardly wait! [Chuckles]
Maggie: Eric? This is a surprise.
Eric: I won't take up too much of your time.
Maggie: Please, sit.
Maggie: I heard you were released from prison. Uh, something about, um, saving the governor's daughter?
Eric: I didn't do it expecting to be released.
Maggie: But how fortunate for you that it worked out that way. I understand you're back to take a job at he Horton center. People thought I should know in case I ran into you on the street.
Eric: Before anything I just wanted to make my intentions clear of why I came back.
Maggie: Okay, I'm listening.
Eric: What I didn't-- what I'm not gonna do is go back to where I was.
I so want to make amends with you and right now I don't even know how I can do that. All I'm trying to do is cobble together some sort of life. Purpose of trying to help others. If my being back here is too much pain or just knowing that I'm nearby is just--
Maggie: Just stop. Please. I've heard enough.
[Soft jazzy music]
Abigail: You're gonna be fine, okay? You nailed the press conference earlier. Tonight is gonna be a piece of cake.
Chad: Thank you for putting all this together. I don't know what I'd do without you.
Eric: I've upset you.
Eric: It's the last thing that--
Maggie: Stop. Stop. [Exhales sharply] If I'm upset it's because you talk to me as if I don't know what an "amends" is. I'm an alcoholic, remember?
Maggie: I got behind the wheel of a car and I almost killed someone... but I got lucky. The person survived. That's the only difference between us. And my son... hm. There isn't a day goes by that I don't miss Daniel. I hate it that he's gone. But it doesn't cause me pain to see you. I have no desire for you to throw your life away because my son lost his. What would be the point in that? If nothing else, you owe it to Daniel... and yourself... not to waste this second chance you've been given. And if everything that you do from this day forward... makes the world a better place... then that's all the apology that I'll ever need from you. Okay?
Eric: [Whispers] Okay.
Maggie: Now, stop that. [Laughs]
[Somber dramatic music]
Abigail: The place looks really great, Dario.
Dario: I'm glad you think so.
Chad: Yeah, thanks for making it available for us tonight.
Dario: Anything for a good cause.
Gabi: Abby, you look amazing.
Abigail: Thank you. So do you.
Gabi: I'm gonna go find my date, okay?
Dario: You're right. I promise, no scheming.
Chad: I'm gonna go find a private corner I can practice that speech.
[Gentle jazzy music]
Dario: Gabi was right. You look amazing.
Abigail: Well, you don't look so bad yourself. Where's your date? I wanna meet her.
Dario: She's not coming.
Abigail: What? Why not?
Dario: We broke up.
Abigail: Oh, Dario, I'm sorry.
Dario: It's okay. Women come and go. It's just... it's part of life.
Abigail: Well, I have a feeling that the right one is gonna show up very soon. She might even be here tonight.
Dario: [Chuckles] Maybe so.
Abigail: If you find her, let me know.
Dario: You'll be the first.
Abigail: Well, I see a huddle of DiMeras' board members over there and I need to say hello and make sure they're having a good time.
Dario: Go get 'em.
Abigail: Okay, thanks.
Gabi: Hey, Chad, what's going on?
Chad: Hey, can, um-- can you and I talk?
Julie told me to write the letter and Maggie told me to take it to him.
Theo needs to know how I feel.
Claire: Oh, my God, you backstabbing-- God, I cannot believe you'd do this.
Theo: What'd you say?
Claire: Sorry, what?
Theo: No, I thought I heard you talking. Is something wrong?
Claire: Oh, no, nothing. Nothing at all.
Abigail: [Sighs] I just sent a whole bottle of champagne over to that team of board members. Try to loosen them up a bit.
Dario: Hmm. Should've sent over a magnum.
Abigail: [Laughs] Well, they just need to be reminded of what it feels like to let their hair down. 'Cause the more fun they have at the party, the greater the donation.
Abigail: Just wish I could figure out how to get them out on the dance floor.
Dario: Yeah, good luck with that.
Abigail: I don't need luck, I have you.
Dario: What did you say?
Abigail: Well, how about we try out some of those dance moves. We can be a little inspiration for the stuffed shirts. Come on.
Dario: I don't think so.
Abigail: [Laughs] Come on, Dario, it's for a good cause. It's gonna be so fun and we don't wanna let this great music go to waste. What do you say?
Dario: I can't do it.
[Gentle jazzy music]
Gabi: Chad, what are we doing out here?
Chad: Look, I told you I need to talk to you.
Gabi: Okay, can I just send Eli a text or something? I don't want him to think--
Chad: Who the hell is Eli? That doesn't matter. It's fine. It's fine. Eli can wait, but this really can't.
Gabi: Okay, Chad, what's going on? Just tell me.
Chad: I love you.
