Provided By Suzanne

Jennifer: Ready? You do it.

[Gasps] Submit! There we go. Oh, boy. This day did not turn out the way we wanted it to. Did it, sweetie? But you know what? Everyone is safe, and no one got hurt, and your mom and dad, they are gonna get married again, and you are gonna have the most beautiful, happy life together.

Andre: I do hope you're right about that.

Jennifer: Why wouldn't I be?

Andre: Have you had any word on the status of the nuptials?

Jennifer: No. We're just in a holding pattern right now. Chad and abigail, they don't want to move ahead with anything until they find out what sonny wants to do.

[Somber music]

Abigail: Sonny, hi. How are you? Are you okay?

Sonny: I guess so.

Chad: Hey. Come here. Where's, uh... why isn't paul here with you?

Lani: Paul. Has anything more happened?

Paul: Where have you been?

Lani: They sent me to interview the staff at bayview, where ben was being held.

Paul: Supposedly being held.

Lani: Right. I wish I was dancing at your wedding reception right now.

Paul: You have no idea how much I wish that too. So what'd you find out?

Lani: That ben managed to steal a set of keys from a nurse and that he was acting alone.

Paul: What about his crazy theory that will's still alive?

Lani: No one there knew anything about that.

Paul: That's his story and he's sticking to it.

Lani: Yeah, like he was when I left headquarters.

Paul: You know, they let sonny talk to him. Just kept... talking in circles. Sonny almost lost it. I finally had to drag him out of there.

Lani: Maybe a cop will have better luck.

Paul: Yeah, that's what I'm hoping. When we left, jj was having a go at him.

Ben: I told you, I'm innocent. I would've never been driven to any of this if it wasn't for your slut of a sister.

Jj: Don't say another word about her. One more time, what about paige?

Ben: What do you care about paige, huh? Aren't you the one that broke her heart, sleeping with her mother?

Jj: Shut up!

Ben: Eve was hot, but oh, my god, jj, really?

Jj: For the third--

Ben: Everybody keeps telling me to shut up and then talk; it's very confusing.

Jj: What about paige?!

Ben: Paige. Paige, paige paige, paige, paige... dead or alive? She's worm food, I'm sorry.

[Tense music]


Jj: You know what? You know what? I could do this whole world a favor and wipe you off the planet right now.

Ben: Come on, jj. Do it. Instead of a wedding, we could have a murder.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Abe: Commissioner brady is not only a first-rate detective with years of experience, but she's also one of the finest people it's ever been my privilege to know. And I'm looking forward to working with her as commissioner. Questions?

Mr. Mayor.

Abe: Jerry.

What's the latest on ben weston?

Abe: Well, weston's in custody, and I've been assured by commissioner brady that he's going to stay there, so the citizens of salem don't have to worry.

One more thing.

Abe: Always one more thing with you, jerry.

Rafe: Commissioner brady. Does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it? I'll miss you as my partner, though. But guess that was gonna happen no matter which one of us got picked.

Hope: Hey.

Rafe: Hm?

Hope: You're still my partner in every way.

Rafe: Better believe it. We need to find a way to celebrate this fine new position. Don't we?

Hope: Yeah.

Sonny: I told paul that I want to talk to the two of you alone.

Abigail: Why?

Sonny: 'Cause i think he's gonna need some breathing room. I just told him that I can't marry him today.

Chad: You sure about that? Ben's insane; he doesn't know what's real and what's not.

Abigail: And I talked to jj this morning. He said that ben wasn't really saying anything, so... did something change?

Sonny: No, it was just... different ways of saying that will is still alive.

Jj: And you believe him?

Sonny: Paul doesn'T. Neither does anybody else. But as long as I have the tiniest bit of doubt, I have to get to the bottom of this,

Abigail: Sorry.

Chad: If ben is messing with you, I'm gonna kill him with my bare hands, I swear to... sorry, uh... so what's it gonna take to convince you?

Sonny: I wish I knew.

Jj: You know, I actually used to feel sorry for you for what clyde did to you as a kid. But you are just like he is--scum.

Ben: You know what you are, jj? A lying, cheating phony, just like your whore of a sister.

Jj: I told you, don't say another word about my sister.

Ben: You mean the whore?

Jj: If you don't shut up, I will shut you up!

Jennifer: Abigail told me how supportive you were of her when she came back to town. I really appreciate that.

Andre: I can see how good she is to my brother. I must say, I'm really happy, the two of them being able to find a way to come back to each other.

Jennifer: Do you think kate will ever come around to your way of thinking?

Andre: [Laughs] She already is. Listen, she's just as concerned about your brother as you are. Have you had any word from lucas?

Jennifer: No. And if he hears what ben has to say about will, I have no idea how he'll react.

Sonny: The reason I wanted to talk to the two of you is I do not want ben to ruin your wedding day. Paul and I can't get married, but the two of you can. It would really help paul and me to see you two happy.

Chad: Ah, well, we'll-- we'll talk about it, okay?

Lani: Where's sonny now?

Paul: Probably with chad and abigail. He's telling them that he decided he can't go through with the wedding if there's any chance that will's still alive.

Lani: Well, maybe sonny just needs time to process everything that happened today.

Paul: Yeah. Yeah, I guess.

Lani: I have to get back to the station. Are you gonna be okay alone? Want me to call your dad or anything?

Paul: No, I, uh, just need time to process too.

Lani: I'll let you know if i find out anything new.

[Melancholy music]


Hope: Thank you, really. Everyone get back to work. Business as usual. Thank you.

Jj: Life in a rubber room must be pretty boring. A bullet in the head could be just what you came here looking for. Is that why you wrecked my sister's wedding? Is that why you said will's alive? To make us all as crazy as you are so one of us would put you out of your misery?

Ben: I said will is alive because he is.

Jj: No, he is not. Now either you tell me why you're putting his loved ones through this, or you will leave this room in a body bag.

Hope: Holster your weapon, right now. Detective! Can a canned soup can goodness?

Valerie: I saw the press conference. Thank you. How did you-- how did you finally decide on hope?

Abe: History. She started the academy right out of high school. She's got seniority and a distinguished service record.

Valerie: But didn't you also mention that she has a prison record?

Abe: Yeah, but she was cleared.

Valerie: Well, do the people know that?

Abe: I checked with my office, and we're not being flooded with protests over her selection.

Valerie: Then you were right.

Abe: She's also a member of an old, respected salem family, and the new commissioner has to be squeaky clean.

Valerie: And rafe isn't?

Abe: His father's in prison. And his brother was just arrested for running a counterfeiting racket with the previous commissioner.

Valerie: Wow. Huh. That is a lot to get over.

Abe: Yeah, it's not fair. But his fbi experience is an asset to the police force in any capacity.

Valerie: Well, speaking of fbi experience, how are eli's prospects looking?

Abe: I told you, I would love to have eli on the police force.

Valerie: Well, that's just great, thank you very much.

Abe: Ah, don't thank me yet. Whoever we hire is going to work with rafe, and rafe has a vote, and... he might have a problem working with eli.

Hope: I said holster your weapon, detective.

Jj: He's playing games. He's not answering my questions. He needed to know I meant business.

Ben: He said he wanted to put a bullet in my head so he could dance on my grave--

Jj: Shut your mouth, or i will shut it for you!

Rafe: Deveraux!

Hope: You're done here, jj.

Jj: I don't think you can make that call.

Rafe: Oh, actually, she can make that call. Why don't you say hello to the new commissioner.

Hope: I'll finish the questioning. You pull yourself together. And we will talk later.

Jj: Yes, ma'am.

Lani: What happened in there?

Jj: Hey, can we just get out of here?

Lani: Yeah, sure.

[Soft dramatic music]

Ben: That was police brutality. I'll be suing this department.

Rafe: You should do that. You'd make a great witness for yourself.

Ben: Sonny kiriakis believes what I say.

Hope: I wouldn't count on that. All this little stunt is gonna get you is a one-way ticket back to bayview.

Ben: You try and send me--! You send me back there, you'll never find out what I know about will.

Sonny: Hey.

Paul: Did you go to the church? Chad and abigail are gonna go through with the wedding?

Sonny: [Clears throat] I hope so. Did my best to sell them on the idea. What about us?

Paul: What about us?

Sonny: Paul, I'm so sorry.

Paul: For what?

Sonny: Just for everything that happened today. I'm so sorry.

Paul: You didn't make it happen.

Sonny: I was for sure you'd be my husband by now.

Paul: You need to know whether ben's lying about will. I understand.

Sonny: Do you? I mean, do you really?

Paul: Okay...

[Sighs deeply] Yeah, I'm, uh... I'm trying hard to understand, I really am. But I have to admit, it's really hard.

Abigail: So, if we decide to do what sonny wants, and we bring all the guests back... or not, because I just think that it's been a pretty stressful day, and I don't really feel like a blushing bride right now.

Chad: Well, I know this isn't the wedding that you wanted. But we can call the guests and get them back here.

Abigail: No, no, no. It's too much; it's asking too much.

Andre: Do you think we should try to reach lucas?

Jennifer: I left him a message before you got here. But thank you, that's, um, nice of you to care.

Andre: Well, we're family now. And family's as important to the dimeras as it is to the hortons. And soon, two of salem's greatest dynasties will be joined forever.

Jennifer: [Laughs] Okay, we hortons do not think of ourselves as a dynasty.

Andre: Well, you're part of that now. Ah, chad, abigail! We were so concerned about you.

Jennifer: Yeah, um, he just fell asleep.

Abigail: Poor guy.

Chad: Hey, what are you doing here?

Andre: Well, I came to see jennifer to see if the wedding was going to take place today.

Abigail: You know, we just spoke to sonny, and he says he wants us to go ahead with it.

Jennifer: And are you?

Abigail: I think so. Um, chad was just getting ready to contact everybody to have them come back, but I just think it's too much.

Jennifer: Why?

Abigail: I don't know, they've all seen us do it before, and the important thing is that he and I still have each other. We've got him. Got ourselves a couple witnesses right here.

Jennifer: Oh, wait, so you are gonna do it then!

Chad: Yes, we are.

Jennifer: Oh, I'm so glad! I'm so glad.

Andre: So am I.

Abigail: There is-- there's one problem, though.

Abigail: There's just nobody to marry us.

Chad: And it seems kind of insensitive to get justin back here now that, uh, sonny's not getting married.

Jennifer: I see what you mean.

Andre: Well, certainly there must be someone in the glut of the family members who were here that could be ordained quickly.

Chad: Same deal. I mean, marlena's dealing with what she heard about will, and the same with adrienne.

Andre: Oh, but this is ridiculous. Listen, I can find a list of-- of people who can perform the duties, even if I have to--

Chad: Whoa, no, no, no, don't finish that sentence.

Abigail: Um, we have a license. We could just go to city hall.

Jennifer: No, you can't do that. I mean, this--this church is where you got christened, where you--where you made your holy communion. I...

Andre: Look. I have a list of the licensed officiants.

Chad: I don't want to get married by some officiant you found at "weddings r us."

Abigail: I don't either.


Louis: Oh, you're still here.

Abigail: Father, oh my gosh, how are you? I heard you had a family emergency.

Louis: Yes, yes, my sister took ill, but she's in the hospital now. She's doing much better, thank you.

Jennifer: Oh, I'm so glad. That's great.

Louis: I was sorry to hear that you postponed your wedding.

Chad: Well, uh, actually, we decided to go through with it.

Abigail: Especially if maybe you would be willing to marry us--I mean, if you're up for it.

Louis: Absolutely, and it would be my pleasure.

[Warm music]

Jj: I shouldn't have pulled my gun on ben. I was out of control, and that's on me. But hope could have done this another way. She busted my chops in front of a guy who kidnapped my sister! He murdered my girlfriend!

Lani: What's gonna happen now?

Jj: Hope said that she wanted to talk to me. I don't know what she's gonna say.

Lani: She knows what ben put your family through, okay? She'll probably just take you off the case.

Jj: You should have heard him, lani. The way he talked to me about paige. He called my sister a whore.

Lani: You should have never been in that room alone with him.

Jj: Well, I didn't get anything out of him, that's for sure. That smug little son of a bitch. He was having a blast, and I let him get to me. And I was just trying to scare him, but the only person who's gonna pay is me.

Rafe: Let's get something straight, shall we? You're not the one that gives ultimatums, do you hear me?

Hope: Back down. Back up, hernandez.

Rafe: What's it with you? You got a sweet spot for this guy?

Hope: I'd rather have him in police custody than send him back to the place he's already escaped from. Should I have rafe take you down to a cell?

Rafe: The long way?

Hope: Ben? If will really is alive, then your sentence reflects a crime that you didn't commit. Okay.

[Suspenseful music]

If you don't feel like talking, I'll take off the cuffs, and you can write down everything that you know. Swear to the truth and sign it, and maybe we can work something out.

Paul: Sonny, you were in paris when will died. Lucas and sami identified his body. Now, how can the doctor and will's parents make that kind of mistake?

Sonny: I know, I-- I totally get that. And I agree with you. But what does ben get out of saying what he knows is an out-and-out lie?

Paul: Ben's psychotic. I mean, who knows what he gets out of it? What I do know is that when we thought that ben was safely locked up in bayview... you were feeling guilty about moving on with me. And maybe this is giving you reason not to--

Sonny: Paul, paul. You were the first man that i ever loved. I love you, with all of my heart and soul.

Paul: Yeah, well, I may have been the first, but i let you down. And then you met will, and you loved him with all of your heart and soul. And you--and you want what ben said to be true. It's okay, I get it. I mean, I--I wish that I could take the pain away of will'S... from you and all the people that loved him. I mean that. I mean, I wish i really could. I wish what ben was saying was true.

Sonny: Really?

Paul: Yeah, god yes.

Sonny: You're amazing. And I know I'm asking so much of you. But with a guy like ben, it just leaves me wondering... is there any truth to it?

Paul: Takes you back to that time, right?

Sonny: [Sighs] I just feel like I'm losing will all over again.

Paul: I'm sorry.

Sonny: You have nothing to be sorry for.

Paul: No, I meant that I'm sorry for you.

Sonny: Paul, are you willing to wait until I get the answers I need, or did I ruin everything between us?

Louis: We've gathered to celebrate the joining of abigail and chad in a covenant of love. This covenant is a promise of hope between two people who love each other who understand that their love is a gift from god and to trust that that love will unite them forever. Harry's meeting clients...

Louis: The union of husband and wife in heart, body, and mind is intended by god for their mutual joy, for the help and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity. And when it is god's will for the procreation of children and their nurturing in the knowledge and love of the lord. Therefore, marriage is not to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly, but reverently and deliberately.

[Thomas crying]

Chad: Sorry, father. Uh, we did this part the first time. I think my son would really appreciate if we could just speed it up a little bit, yeah.

Louis: Okay, so, uh, uh, if anyone here has just cause to--

Abigail: Please tell me we're not leaving that part in.


[Thomas crying] Oh, honey, oh. It's okay. Hey.

[Ominous music]

Ben: I want a lawyer.

Hope: You've already been convicted. No lawyer will agree to represent you without knowing you have something concrete to give us.

Ben: So I'm just supposed to tell you what you want to know, and then I get sent back to the cracker factory?

Hope: I didn't say that.

Ben: I'm not an idiot.

Hope: Ben, you went to a lot of trouble to escape bayview on abigail and sonny's wedding day. Now you have nothing to say? You had a lot to say before. I can ship you back to bayview, or prison--whatever I want. You're on borrowed time. You realize that, don't you? You need to tell me right now what you know about will, or there will be no deal to be made, do you understand? Not ever.

Paul: I know ben's just screwing with us. And I also know that you don't want to believe that. Do you?

Sonny: I just have to know 100%, and I think will's parents are gonna feel the same way.

Paul: Okay, well, if you want to know the truth...

Sonny: Of course I do.

Paul: And multiple eyewitnesses aren't enough for you or a coroner's report, then what you need to do is exhume will's body. Hey girlfriend, how's your cafe au lait?

Valerie: What could rafe hernandez possibly have against my son?

Abe: You, um, remember that incident with ex-commissioner raines.

Valerie: When raines was holding rafe's sister hostage? Yes, of course. And eli saved gabi's life.

Abe: Well, rafe might have a different perspective.

Valerie: And what perspective would that be?

Abe: He thinks that eli took an enormous chance firing at raines while he was holding gabi in front of him.

Valerie: Well, what was he supposed to do? Let raines push gabi into a car and take off with her?

Abe: I understand what you're saying.

Valerie: And didn't you just say that raines' partner was rafe's own brother?

Abe: Val, I'm not arguing with you--

Valerie: Neither am I.

Abe: I'm just telling how rafe feels. He's a very protective big brother.

Valerie: I see that.

Abe: You know, he also might be a little touchy because he lost the commissioner job to his fiancÚ. But I will definitely speak to hope about eli.

Valerie: Thank you. I'm counting on it.

Abe: But eli, uh, should be prepared for the fact that it might not be smooth sailing.

Hope: Did you get ben to the holding cell safely? Without incident?

Rafe: And I made sure that he was alone.

Hope: I wasn't really going to ask the da to make a deal with him. You know that, right?

Rafe: Law says we can use trickery to get information out of a suspect.

Hope: I'd say anything to get that particular information.

Rafe: Yep. And ben would say just about anything to keep from going back to bayview.

Hope: [Sighs] I have to try. For lucas, sami, and sonny.

Rafe: What about what jj did?

Hope: Mm. Threatening someone in custody with a gun. Obviously, there's got to be a consequence. How harsh do you think i should be?

Rafe: Up to you.

Hope: [Sighs]

Rafe: Boss.

Jj: I know I have a temper. But I am not going to apologize for what I did today. I was never gonna hurt the guy.

Lani: I know that.

Jj: As much as I wanted to.

[Phone ringing] Deveraux. I'll be right there. Hope wants me back at the squad room asap.

Lani: Was that her on the phone? Any idea what she's going to say?

Jj: Guess I'm about to find out.

Sonny: You want me to have will's body exhumed?

Paul: I'm sorry, but dna testing is the only way to prove that ben is lying.

Sonny: No. No. No, no. There has to be another way.

Paul: Okay, sonny, judging by your reaction, you know that will's in that cemetery. I know that too. But if absolute proof is the only way that you're gonna get closure, then there's no other way to do this.

Abigail: Oh, it's okay. I think he just wants his mom. Come here, sweetie.

Louis: I understand.

Abigail: There we go. Oh, that's gonna be better. Mommy's right here. Look at, what's that? It's daddy. Yeah? We're getting married again, huh? I'm just gonna hold him, if that's okay. Is that all right?

Louis: Perfectly okay.

Abigail: Yeah, awesome. Yeah... our love's the reason that he's here. He makes that love stronger every day.

Chad: You are the one and only love of my life. And if you ever have any doubts about that, put 'em away. It's yours forever.

Louis: Wait, not quite yet.

Abigail: [Laughs]

Chad: Okay. Um... the last three months has shown me that the three of us, we can't live without each other. This is just the way it belongs. And, uh, I want him to be the best of us-- smart, funny, strong.

Abigail: Like you.

Chad: Actually, I was talking about you.

Louis: Chad, will you have abigail to be your wife? To love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Chad: I will.

Louis: Abigail, will you--

Chad: One second. I don't want--this is--I need to, um... I know it's a bit unorthodox, since we're past the engagement stage, but I, uh... believe this belongs to you.

Abigail: How do you still have that?

Chad: It's the first ring i ever gave you. So... [Clears throat] Sorry.

Louis: No, it's okay. You had good reason.

[Thomas moans]

Abigail: It's okay, honey. I know.

Louis: All right, so, um, abigail, will you have chad to be your husband? To love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to him, as long as you both shall live? Let us pray. O god, faithful and true, whose steadfast love endures forever.
