Provided By Suzanne

Lucas: Congratulations, everybody.

[Pop] To the bride and the grooms, the one, two, three grooms. Oh, cheers, cheers.


Chloe: What the...nerve of that woman.

[Door closes]

Lucas: Ah, oh, hey. Where the hell is everybody?

Nicole: Honestly, at first, i thought I was having some strange, awful dream.

Brady: Too bad it wasn'T.

Nicole: Yeah, it's really too bad. You know, it's hard enough for your brother to come out, which he so beautifully expressed in his vows.

Brady: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: And just knowing how proud and happy he was to marry the man he loves...

Brady: And ben weston comes in and ruins the whole thing along with his sick lie that will is alive.

Eric: That's a lot of water damage--that's definitely gonna be a problem.

Oh, a storm's coming, that's-- I'm definitely gonna need a bigger bucket.

[Phone rings]

[Beep] Dad, hey.

Roman: Glad I caught you. There's something I need to talk to you about.

Eric: Dad, can I call you back? I gotta fix the leaky roof before the storm rolls in. Salem, you know, is in a dry path, but the farmhouse is gonna be right in the middle of the storm.

Roman: It's important, eric. It's about will.

Gabi: Bye, sweetie, okay? You behave with ms. Amanda, okay?

[Sighs] You don't think arianna senses anything's wrong, right?

Eli: She seemed all right at the ice cream shop.

Gabi: It took everything-- everything I have to keep it together for her, to stay strong for my daughter. Why would that psycho say that will is alive? Why would he do that?

Eli: Look, I know the man is out of his mind, but you think there's a chance he could be telling the truth?

[Dramatic music]

Sonny: The rational part of me knows that will is gone, okay? But there is a part of me, a part in my heart, that wishes it weren't true.

Justin: I understand.

Sonny: So before paul and i get married, I need to know for sure--we need to know for sure if what ben said is actually a lie. So dad, we want to get will's body exhumed.

Justin: You what?

Paul: It's the only way we're gonna get closure on this.

Sonny: Please, dad, you have to make this happen.

Justin: I'm sorry, sonny. I can't help you.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Chloe: Lucas, please, just give me the bottle.

Lucas: Mm-mm. Mine, mine, it's my nasty bottle of champagne. Plus, I'm waiting on the dj to get here. I'm gonna show everybody my chicken dance. A lame reception, don't you think?

Chloe: I'm gonna take you home so you can sleep this off. Come--

Lucas: I'm not going anywhere. I need to stay here, all right? Gotta make best wishes to the brides and the grooms-- mostly the grooms.

Chloe: No, I think that we should go.

Lucas: I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying here. I got--I gotta apologize to abigail and chad and sonny and that other guy. Apparently I was a little bit rude at the church the other day. I was a lot rude, but whatever. What are you gonna do? There's an open bar here, right? Right?

Chloe: Lucas, there isn't gonna be a reception because there was no wedding.

Sonny: Dad, I don't understand. Why--why won't you help us?

Paul: Yeah, look, we know this is a lot to ask--

Justin: This is a bad idea. And besides, I don't have the authority to exhume will's body. And neither do you.

Sonny: Why the hell not? I was his husband.

Justin: Yes--

Sonny: I have the legal right, dad.

Justin: That's true. A surviving spouse does have that authority, and that wouldn't be a problem if you and will hadn't been legally separated at the time of his death.

[Somber music]

Justin: When you were in paris, you and will agreed to a legal separation, don't you remember?

Sonny: Of course I remember. I just didn't realize the paperwork was filed.

Justin: Well, unfortunately, once you signed those documents, I had an obligation to send them into the court.

Sonny: Well, it would've been nice if I'd known that.

Justin: I was trying to protect you, sonny. Documents were returned to me shortly before will died, and I didn't want to bring it up when we were all in mourning.

Sonny: So what does this mean? Who has the authority to have his body exhumed?

Justin: Well, a judge could order the body removed and examined if there was compelling evidence that the body isn't will's, but, right now, all we have is testimony of ben weston.

Paul: Yeah, who's legally insane.

Justin: Yes. And since you and will were granted a separation by the court, no judge is gonna rule that you are his next of kin.

Sonny: Well, then who is?

Justin: Those rights would fall to will's parents. Sami and lucas.

[Somber music]

Lucas: What are you talking about? Why--why wasn't there any wedding?

Chloe: Okay, we need to sober you up. You didn't drive here, did you?

Lucas: No, I didn't drive here. It's hard to drive when the bartender steals your keys at the place you're at. And you're avoiding the question.

Chloe: Here will you please just drink this? And I'll make you some coffee if you'd like.

Lucas: I don't want it. Tell me what happened. What happened with the wedding? Was it paul? It was paul, right? He changed his mind about sonny. Oh, no, wait, it was sonny. Sonny ditched paul, right? 'Cause that's what sonny does. When the going gets tough, he ditches people like he ditched my son.

Chloe: Look, that is-- that's not what happened. Paul and sonny are still together. They just didn't get married.

Lucas: It was chad and abigail?

Chloe: No, they did get married. I just spoke to jennifer, and i guess they had a short impromptu wedding, which is probably better, considering what happened at the real wedding ceremony.

Lucas: What are you talking about, chloe? You said there was no wedding. You know you're not making any sense, you know that, right?

Chloe: [Sighs] Ben weston showed up, and he cancelled the wedding.

Lucas: Wait a minute, ben weston? That is impossible. That lunatic is locked away.

Chloe: He escaped somehow. I don't know how. Don't ask me, but I guess he's at the police station right now.

Lucas: Why would he break up the wedding?

Chloe: Well, apparently he went there to tell sonny that will is still alive.

[Baby fussing]

Brady: No, I meant what i said about doubling last year's salary. I'm ser--no, I unders-- listen, just let me know if you change your mind. Thanks. Damn it, damn it. I can't believe this.

Nicole: What's wrong?

Brady: Yet another casualty from all the firings that sonny made at titan. Can you believe I'm picking up the pieces on this thing?

Nicole: I thought you hired everyone back.

Brady: I'm--I've been trying to. Thing is they don't wanna come back. I don't blame 'em because of the way sonny treated them.

Nicole: I'm sorry, brady.

Brady: So we're missing some of our top execs, and these guys are irreplaceable. I'm throwing money at them. I'm throwing vacation days at them, and it's not working.

Nicole: Can't you hire new employees?

Brady: These--no, these are guys that have been on these accounts and marketing for years. I can't replace them. I mean, I just don't know what to do--the wheels are falling off the bus here, and, if I want something done, I gotta do it myself. I can't rely on sonny. For god's sake.

Nicole: Well, maybe you and sonny can find a way to work together again.

Brady: Oh, I don't think there's any hope of that now.

Nicole: Oh, come on.

Brady: No way.

Nicole: Brady, he's family. And after what he just went through?

Brady: Well, thanks for taking his side.

Nicole: I'm not, okay? But, look, I feel bad for sonny. Don't you?

Brady: Yeah.

Nicole: He was supposed to get married today, and look-- look how everything turned out.

Brady: You're right.

Nicole: Brady, I, look. I am on your side. Always. You're the most important man in the world to me. You know that, right?

Brady: Yeah, yeah.

[Gentle music]

Eric: Wait, ben said will is still alive?

Roman: The guy is a psychopath--you gotta keep that in mind.

Eric: Did anyone tell sami?

Roman: At this point, why? I mean, there's no substance to the claim, so why upset her? The only reason I'm calling you is 'cause you live in the area, and I wanted you to hear it from me first before anybody else.

Eric: Right.

Roman: Now about that roof-- need an extra hand? I think I can get somebody to cover for me here at the bar.

Eric: No, I'm fine.

Roman: You sure about that?

Eric: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I can handle it.

Roman: All right, well, listen. You need anybody to talk to, I'm here for you.

Eric: Yeah, thanks, dad. Hey, take care of yourself.

Roman: Yeah, you too.

[Gentle music]


Brady: Why are you looking at me like that?

Nicole: Because I know something's bothering you.

Brady: No, it's--come on, it's been an exhausting day. I'm just--I'm tired.

Nicole: Speaking of which, we haven't had a chance to talk about your speech at the wedding.

Brady: What about it?

Nicole: Well, it was very, um, honest and heartfelt. But, on the surface, it-- it seemed like you were giving the bride and groom advice about fighting for the one you love.

Brady: Wait--on the surface?

Nicole: Mm. I couldn't help but read between the lines, brady. It seemed to me that you were talking about us.

Brady: [Scoffs]

Are you seriously gonna stand there right now and deny that you have feelings for nicole, hmm? Come on, come on, admit it to me! Just say it to my face.

Eric: Okay, okay, I do. I do.

Brady: Uh-huh.

Eric: But I've never done anything about it. She doesn't know how I feel.

Brady: How long have you had feelings for her? Just tell me, how long have you been in love with her?

Eric: I never said that I loved--

Brady: How long?

Nicole: Brady? Is there something we need to talk about?

I love you, couch.

[Somber music]

Gabi: There's absolutely no way that will is alive, okay? I was the one that found him.

[Dramatic music]

[Screams] No! When I walked into that apartment, and I saw him lying there, I--I tried to revive him, I did. I did cpr--I did everything i could to save him, to save my baby's father.

Eli: I'm so sorry, gabi.

Gabi: He was my best friend. And I didn't get to say good-bye to him. And neither did arianna because a disgusting, sick man took will away from us.

Eli: That must've been so hard. I mean, having to explain all that to arianna.

Gabi: Yeah, it was. It was, and, you know, for a while, she'd wake up-- she'd wake up in the middle of the night crying for her dad.

[Sniffs] She doesn't--she doesn't cry out for him anymore 'cause she knows he's not coming back.

Eli: Well, she's lucky to have you. You're a great mom.

Gabi: Thank you. If abigail hadn't beat me to it, I would've decked that son of a bitch myself.

Eli: I'm sure you would've.

Gabi: Oh, god, just-- the feelings that he stirred. I mean, showing up like that and telling everyone that will is alive? I mean, the shock of it all, the--the grief just makes it feel like--it makes it feel like will died yesterday instead of a couple years ago. And god knows I wish what ben was saying was the truth, but I know, we all know, that will's gone. Will's gone. And he's never coming back.


Lucas: Ben weston? Ben weston said my son was alive, of all people?

Chloe: I don't have all the details, just what jennifer told me when she called and cancelled the reception. Evidently, ben wanted sonny to know the truth--if that is the truth, before he married paul.

Lucas: "If it's the truth"? What are you talking about? It's impossible.

Chloe: Wait, where--where are you going?

Lucas: I want answers! I want real answers for once.

[Dramatic music]

Nicole: Brady, what is it?

Brady: Hey, I want you to know that I know that things have been strained, and it's mostly my fault. I just--I don't wanna lose you. I don't wanna lose you. I love you, and I don't-- there's no one else in the world that I'd rather be with than you. Do you understand what I'm saying?

Nicole: Baby, yes, I feel the same way.

Brady: Um, sorry, I'm sorry.

Nicole: What, for what?

Brady: 'Cause I haven't-- I haven't been fun to be around. I've been a pain in the butt.

Nicole: Stop it, stop. Brady, I-- I love you. For better or worse. For richer or poorer. In sickness and in health. In good spirits and bad.

Brady: Stop, stop.

Nicole: [Chuckles]

Brady: Thank you for just understanding and putting up with me. I love you.

Nicole: I love you.

Brady: And now I have to go back to the office to put out some of those titan fires, okay?

Nicole: Yes, of course, go.

Brady: I'll see you soon.

Nicole: Yes, mm-hmm.

[Gentle music]

Eric: You know what? I--I never got us those waters.

[Baby fussing]

Nicole: Sweetheart. Eric? Is that you?

[Baby fussing]

Nicole: Eric?

[Baby fussing]

Oh, my god. Nicole, what is wrong with you? Oh.

[Baby fussing] Oh, hi, sweetheart, hi. Oh, my goodness, mama not paying attention to you, huh? No? I'm sorry. Yeah, no, mommy just thought she saw eric. Yes, mommy's eyes are playing tricks on her. Uh-huh. Just miss him a little. That's all. But it's probably a good thing that he's gone. Because you, tate, and brady are my family. And you're all I need to be happy.

[Dramatic music]

Gabi: You know, growing up without a father is hard. I mean, people survive it, obviously. But for me, it was different. It was--I was always wondering about him. Always feeling like something important was missing from my life. You know, I didn't get to even know him till a couple years ago when he came to salem for my sister's funeral. Her name was paige. And ben weston killed her too.

Eli: Gabi, I'm so sorry.

Gabi: I didn't even get to know her. I didn't even know she was my sister until after she died. But from what I hear, she was a wonderful person. Anyway, you know, family's very important to me, and I'm sure it is to a lot of people, right?

Eli: Definitely.

Gabi: Don't get me wrong. Sonny--sonny's an amazing dad to arianna. I just wish she had will in her life too. I know you know what it's like to grow up without your real dad.

Eli: Yeah, yeah, the man i remember as my dad, terence, he died when I was six, and my biological father-- I didn't get a chance to meet him at all.

Gabi: That's so sad.

Eli: Yeah, I did feel pretty sorry for myself growing up without a dad to look up to, but with the benefit of time and perspective, I realized that my mother was twice the parent that most kids get, and I'm sure that arianna is gonna feel the same way about you.

Justin: I'm gonna go check on your mom. See how she's doing.

Sonny: Okay, well, tell her i love her.

Justin: Sonny, if you need anything, I'm here for you.

Paul: Look, maybe--maybe it's better if you just forget about this.

Sonny: Paul, I need to find the truth.

Paul: Yeah, but I hate what this is doing to you.

Sonny: Okay, but it's only gonna get worse if we don't find out.

Paul: And there's a chance that may never happen. I mean, you do realize that, don't you?

Sonny: I love you, paul. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, but that's not gonna happen unless I can give you my whole heart, so if there is the slightest chance that will is alive, I need to do whatever it takes to find out. Otherwise I'm always going to be wondering. So as painful as it's gonna be, I have to see that the body in that grave is will'S.

Lucas: What the hell is this about? My son being alive.

Copd makes it hard to breathe.

[Gentle music]

Eli: So lost among the much larger disappointments of the day is my small regret that i didn't get to dance with you at the reception.

Gabi: Oh, like, I don't regret having to dance in these.

Eli: Not too comfortable, huh?

Gabi: What do you think?

Eli: I think that you women are a lot tougher than us guys. I mean, between the high heels and the tight dress?

Gabi: The price for looking amazing is not being able to move, so.


Eli: Well, I have a new found appreciation for my own sensible shoes.

[Gentle music]

Why don't I take you to your door?

Gabi: Not necessary, actually. I have been training in self defense with this amazing teacher so I can defend myself.

Eli: Well, except when i showed you those moves, you weren't dressed like this.

Gabi: Good point.

Eli: So why don't I give you some special instructions on how to, I don't know, protect yourself in formalwear?

Gabi: Ah.

Eli: Here, let me take that.

Gabi: Okay.

Eli: Come here.

Gabi: What do I do?

Eli: Put your arms like this.

[Gentle music]

Chloe: Oh, my god, she's getting so big.

Nicole: Hi, tell me about it. She's grown out of almost all her clothes.

Chloe: Oh, that's a good excuse to go shopping.

Nicole: Mm-hmm. So I guess you heard about what happened at the wedding and ben weston.

Chloe: Yeah, jennifer told me--that is crazy. I mean, how does that even happen? How do you escape from bayview?

Nicole: I--I don't know. You got me. But you know, he certainly ruined a beautiful day for everyone.

Chloe: Yeah, including lucas, not that he really gave a damn about the weddings.

Nicole: Lucas knows?

Chloe: Yeah, well, he came to the club earlier for the reception, and I kind of felt like I had to tell him.

Nicole: How did he take it?

Chloe: Not well, and it didn't help that he was totally wasted.

Nicole: Poor lucas. He was already in a world of pain about adrienne. You know, I thank god every day that brady is clean and sober. What, chloe? Is brady drinking again?

[Tense music]

[Door closes]

Roman: Hey, hey, brady.

Brady: Hey.

Roman: What can I get for you?

Brady: Oh, just a club soda for me.

Roman: All right, you got it.

Brady: Thank you. There's probably a lot of people in this town that could use a stiff drink after what that ben weston pulled, huh?

Lucas: Are you telling me there's a chance that my son is alive? We buried him. We closed his casket. I said good-bye.

Sonny: Lucas, I know how painful this has been for you, to lose a son. And actually, I don't know-- I can't even imagine what that's like.

Lucas: That's right, you can't imagine it. You don't want to.

Sonny: No, but you know what? I loved will with all of my heart, and even though you accuse me of forgetting him. I think deep down in your heart you know that isn't true. Anyone that loved will could never forget about him.

Lucas: I know that you loved him. He knew it too. Oh, man, I want this to be true. I really do--I want him to be alive, but come on.

Sonny: No, so do I. That's why I need you to sign off on something. We want to get will's body exhumed.

Lucas: You what?

Paul: Okay, as of right now, we're looking to clear things up, and the only way we can do that is if we get total confirmation that he's the one who's buried there.

Sonny: And I don't have the authority to do so. I am not authorized. It was to be one of his parents. So please, lucas, can you give us the okay?

Lucas: No way. No way, I'm not gonna let you do this.

Gabi: Twist...

Eli: Okay, just make sure that you use your body weight to follow through, okay?

Gabi: Okay.

Eli: All right. Your turn.

Gabi: My turn?

Eli: Yes.

Gabi: To try with you? Okay, I don't think I'm ready for that.

Eli: What? Of course you are. I mean, come on, look, you said you had a good teacher right? And I'll sleep better knowing that you're safe. Come on, here we go. Let's do it.

Gabi: Okay, okay, okay, fine, okay, all right, ready?

Eli: Yes. Oh, ah!

Gabi: [Gasps] Oh, are you okay?

[Tense music]

Nicole: Spending time with you does make me feel better.

Eric: Me too.

Nicole: I know it can't be easy to keep this quiet from brady.

Eric: That's okay. Whatever makes you feel comfortable.

Nicole: Well, I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures you took.

Eric: And you won't be disappointed--they're beautiful.

Nicole: Okay, thanks.

[Door closes]

Roman: [Sighs] So there was a lot of excitement at st. Luke's today. Marlena told me ben weston showed up.

Brady: Yeah. Roman, I'm sorry--that couldn't have been easy to hear that about your grandson.

Roman: God, I wish I could've been there. I would've loved to just beat the hell out of that son of a bitch before he even know what hit him.

Brady: You would've had a lot of backup on that, believe me.

Roman: I'm still trying to figure out how in the hell he got out of bayview. I mean, that is a maximum security facility.

Brady: It was probably an inside job, right?

Roman: Yeah, probably. Just a shame he had to ruin the day for those two couples.

Brady: I feel particularly bad for paul and sonny.

Roman: Yeah.

Brady: I guess all we can do is hope that what happened today will make their love stronger tomorrow.

Roman: Yeah, that is all we can do, but you know what? I'm glad that you and paul are getting tight. Couldn't have been easy finding out you got a new brother after all these years.

Brady: Yeah, he's--paul's a good guy.

Roman: Yes, he is, yes he is. How about your other brother? Talk to eric lately?

Brady: Uh, no, I mean, yeah, here and there, here and there.

Roman: Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out why he packed up so sudden and moved back to that farm. I mean, you know, it's not far, but you got any idea why he'd do that?

Chloe: Uh, the last time i saw brady drinking it was just water, I guess.

Nicole: Oh, god, you scared me for a minute there.

Chloe: Oh, sorry. How's it going with you two? I mean, I know it's been kind of hard for him with you working so closely with eric.

Nicole: Well, he doesn't have to worry about that anymore.

Chloe: Why not?

Nicole: You didn't hear? Eric quit the horton center. He left salem.

Lucas: There's no way in hell I'm giving you permission to dig up my son's body.

Sonny: Lucas, I thought for sure you were gonna say yes. Didn't you say you were hoping what ben said could be true?

Lucas: What--what's wrong with you? I can't do this, all right? How can you do this? What are you, trying to get my hopes up or something?

Sonny: Lucas, I understand.

Lucas: You don't understand. He's gone, okay? He's dead. I saw his cold, lifeless body laying on that slab in the morgue. I saw the red marks around his neck where that son of a bitch choked the life out of him. Nothing I do, no matter how much I drink, nothing works. Nothing gets rid of that image. Vodka, tequila, whiskey, nothing works! It works on everything else, but not that! No matter how much I drink, it won't go away!

Sonny: Okay, I'm so sorry, lucas, I'm sorry.

Lucas: I was a miserable disappointment to my son. I failed him when he was here. I failed him in his lifetime. I am not gonna fail him in death too. The only thing I can do is let him rest in peace. I hope--I hope to god that everybody else can do the same damn thing.

[Door slams]

[Dramatic music]

[Melancholy music]

Lucas: [Sobs]

[Melancholy music]

Paul: You want me to go after him?

Sonny: No. We've upset him enough. He's right. Maybe we should just accept the fact that will is gone.

Paul: Come on, you don't mean that. Well, I'm not gonna give up that easily. If will's father's not gonna help us, then--then there's somebody else who will.

Gabi: Oh, my god, oh, my god, did I hurt you?

Eli: Just--just my pride.

Gabi: Are you okay? I'm so sorry!

Eli: Yeah.

Gabi: Are you okay?

Eli: No, I'm--I'm fine.

Gabi: [Chuckles]

Eli: You're a lot stronger than you look.

Gabi: Yeah, well, maybe i should be giving my teacher a little bit of credit.

[Gentle music]

Brady: Um, no, I don't have any clue why eric left. I hope he's happy though. I mean, he deserves that.

Roman: Yeah, well, that's a good wish for all of us after what happened today.

Brady: Mm.

Roman: Listen, I got stuff to take care of in the back. Great to see you, all right?

Brady: Yeah, you too.

Roman: Take care of yourself, all right?

Brady: Thanks, roman.

[Dramatic music]

[Somber music]

[Door closes]

[Somber music]

Nicole: He said he felt he accomplished everything he could here in salem and it was time to move on, but I-- I still think it's odd that he just got up and left. You know, no notice, no good-bye, no nothing.

Chloe: Okay, nicole, stop. The real reason that eric left salem is you. He left because of you.
