Chad: Whoo! Ohh... you happy, mrs. Dimera?
Abigail: I'm so happy. Yes.
Victor: That bad, huh?
Brady: I didn't see you when I came in.
Victor: Obviously not. Listen, brady, I know that weddings can bring out all kinds of complicated feelings in people...especially when they're interrupted by...a homicidal maniac. I don't want to see you lose your hard-won sobriety. Especially not over the likes of nicole walker.
Chloe: Look, the real reason eric left salem is you. He left because of you.
Nicole: Chloe, I don't know what you're implying.
Chloe: I am not implying anything--I'm just saying it outright. Which...is hard for me because... I care about both eric and brady.
Chloe: Look, they both confided things in me, things that they were trusting me with not to tell anyone, but I can't sit silently by while you're in the dark about this. And I just don't wanna keep secrets from you anymore-- not after everything that I put you through. So I feel like I should just tell you the truth.
Eli: [Laughs] Jeez!
Gabi: I'm so sorry.
Eli: You're a lot stronger than you look.
Gabi: Well, you know, maybe i should give my teacher some credit, you know?
Man: [Loudly] Ah-hem!
The hell do you think you're doin'?
Sonny: Hey, thank you so much for getting here quickly.
Paul: So justin said that because sonny and will were legally separated before will's death...
Sonny: I wouldn't be considered next of kin. I can't authorize having will's body exhumed.
Paul: So we had lucas sign off on it--or we asked him to.
Sonny: But he refused, so you're the only one we can turn to.
Marlena: Oh. I see.
[Stammers] I'm will's grandmother, but I...I doubt that I could authorize an exhumation.
Paul: Actually, we were hoping for something else.
Marlena: Oh? What?
Paul: Marlena, if you could talk to ben...you're the only person with the skills to be able to get through to him.
Sonny: Just get him to explain why he's saying will's alive.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Sonny: Marlena, we can only imagine how painful this has been for you, having ben show up like that and crash the wedding and saying that will's alive.
Marlena: That was painful. Painful for you as well. But I do want to know why ben said what he did about will.
Paul: Well, he said it because he's insane...because he's trying to hurt us. Look, will is dead, and he is not coming back. I'm sorry...but it's true. I mean, ben weston is a liar. And he's only trying to destroy what we have together.
Sonny: Maybe he is...but if there's the slightest chance that will's alive...
Paul: Then you have to know.
Marlena: I can't promise, but I...I will find out what I can.
Brady: You're right. Not about nicole. But about my...sobriety. I don't wanna--I don't wanna give that up either.
Victor: Then, for god's sake, brady, get a hold of yourself!
Brady: Granddad, what I'm trying to tell you is I'm fine, I'm okay. It's kind of mind-boggling to me how I can go to these big public occasions and--and... be fine. Then I get here alone, and that's when I'M...I'm tempted. That's why I'm glad you're here with me, granddad.
Victor: You know, you and nicole seemed fine at the wedding...with everything that was going on.
Brady: We are fine. We're--we're--we're great. We'd be great if I could just get over the damn guilt of eric leaving town, then maybe I'd be better.
Victor: Brady, when are you gonna learn? When you finally start to get what you want in life...you have to stop feeling guilty about how you got it.
Chloe: Nicole, you are my best friend and we almost lost each other once. And I don't wanna ruin our friendship by keeping something this...big from you.
Nicole: I appreciate that, i do, but I-I already knew that eric left town because of me. He told me. Well, he wrote me in a--in a letter he left.
Chloe: What exactly did he say?
Nicole: Well, that things shifted after I forgave him for what happened with daniel.
Chloe: Okay, that much is true.
Nicole: Of course, I thought working together would be a lot easier, but he felt that since we finally put the past in the past...[Chuckles] That it was the perfect time for him to leave salem.
Chloe: Oh...[Sighs]. Wow. Okay, we, llthat guy seems to be one of the most unselfish people I've ever met. When I think about everything that he's given up--he gave up his job, his friends, his family--but most importantly, he gave up you.
Nicole: What are you talking about?
Chloe: Oh, my god, you still don't get it, do you?
Nicole: Get what?
Chloe: Eric didn't leave salem because you forgave him. He left because he's still in love with you.
[Soft dramatic music]
Nicole: [Sighs] This is insane. It can't be true!
Chloe: It is true. Eric told me himself.
Nicole: What? How did that even come up?
Chloe: Well, honestly, i kinda sensed something, and so i called him out on it, and he said yeah, he'd been trying to deny it, but it was no use.
Nicole: Well, I-I-I just don't believe it.
Chloe: Well, believe it. It was tearing the guy up inside. I told him he'd have to deal with his feelings eventually.
Nicole: And this is how he deals with it--by quitting a job that he loves and leaving a town full of people that love him. It doesn't make any sense.
Chloe: Well, it was a little more complicated than that, especially after brady found out.
Nicole: Brady knows eric has feelings for me?
Nicole: Okay, now i definitely don't believe it. Because if brady knew, he would have said something to me.
Chloe: [Sighs] Well, I'm sorry, nicole, but it's true. Brady knows everything.
Gabi: Rafe, stop.
Rafe: No. It's bad enough you took a shot at raines that coulda killed her.
Gabi: You know, eli is a trained marksman--he knew what he was doing.
Rafe: Even marksmen miss.
Gabi: He saved my life. I have told you over and over that what you need to be doing is thanking him!
Rafe: No, I'm not gonna thank him for taking advantage of you at a time like this.
Gabi: What are you talking about?
Rafe: What-- you're gonna act like tonight wasn't rough on you? That psychopath coming back into town, crashing the wedding, acting like will's still alive?
Gabi: Ben is not gonna get--
Rafe: And you had to see chad get married.
Gabi: They're not even married yet, rafe! Please! What?
Rafe: They got married like an hour ago.
Chad: So I need to, uh, talk to you.
Chad: It's kinda serious.
Abigail: What's wrong?
Chad: Um... well, as happy as I am that, you know, we were able to, uh... do our vows, um, would you be upset if we cancelled our honeymoon?
Abigail: I totally forgot about a honeymoon.
Chad: Well, I didn'T. I had this...amazing trip to australia planned with quite the itinerary, I must say.
Abigail: Mmm. I always wanted to go there.
Chad: We will. Just, uh, just kinda doesn't seem right with everything going on right now.
Abigail: Well, as much as i would love being whisked away by you...I agree. I don't think we should go.
Chad: Thanks for understanding.
Abigail: Mm-hmm. Well, thanks for being the kinda guy who doesn't cut out on his friends. I love you for that.
[Sighs] I just feel bad for sonny. You know, I know that we all know that ben's claims are pretty outrageous, but I just think even mentioning that will is alive is...
Chad: Yeah. It just doesn't seem fair. It's like their lives are just in limbo now--sonny, paul, will's family.
Abigail: It's not fair. It's torture.
Marlena: Oh, hey, honey.
John: How you two holdin' up?
Sonny: We're better now... that marlena agreed to help us out.
John: Okay. Okay, well, fill me in on the latest.
Paul: Sure. Do you mind?
Marlena: I'm so sorry you have to go through this.
Sonny: I feel the same way for you, marlena.
Marlena: [Softly] Yeah. Thanks. You know, you're right, it is just still so painful... to think about the way that will died. Just... terrifying and... so young, so young, his whole life ahead of him. And now you...
[Soft laugh] You're getting married. Your whole life ahead of you. I...I should tell you how happy I was when I heard the news that you and paul wanted to share your lives together.
Sonny: Yeah. It's just that i feel horrible--I feel so guilty.
Marlena: Guilty? Why?
Sonny: 'Cause here I am, I-- I'm in love again. I'm getting married again. And what's will up to? Will's gone.
Marlena: Oh, sonny, please, no, don't--
Sonny: I can't help but think about the way I treated him. I was so unfair. I judged him for one mistake? And I didn't even--I didn't just judge him, marlena. I abandoned him. He died thinking I was done with him, that I had fall out of love.
Marlena: No. No, darling, he always knew that you loved him.
Sonny: I know you're just saying that to make me feel better. We have no idea what will felt when he died.
Marlena: I knew my grandson. I understood--I felt that bond you two shared. So I know that... will thought... you would get past it... that you would end up together.
Sonny: I would give anything to tell him that I still love him. Even though I was upset and hurt when we separated... will was the love of my life. I need to tell him that, marlena. And I'm hoping that I get that chance.
Ben: Oh, look. The gang's all here.
Ben: I'm sorry...for bustin' up your big day, boys. But maybe next time will can crash it.
John: No, no, no--
Marlena: Don't let him get to you--that's what he wants. Don't let him do it.
John: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Doc, you sure you're up for this?
Marlena: [Quietly] I am up for this.
John: All right. I'll be right outside here.
Paul: Why don't you get outta here, go check in with your family?
Sonny: But if he tells marlena something--
Paul: The second I find out anything, I will let you know. Okay?
John: Hey, hey, hey. All right, all right, just cool down.
Hope: It's up to marlena now.
[Intense musical sting]
Ben: What are you doin' here? What? You wanna scream at me for saying your grandson's alive? Go ahead. Knock yourself out.
Marlena: I don't wanna scream at you.
[Soft music] I wanna know why you said what you did about will.
Ben: I thought I made myself pretty clear about that.
Marlena: I'd like to hear it from you, ben.
Ben: [Sighs] I came back to tell sonny the good news... that the real love of his life is alive.
Marlena: Not to break up the wedding?
Ben: Yeah. I escaped the fricking nuthouse and risked getting caught for that.
Marlena: Well, you gotta admit that your timing makes it look that way, don't you think?
Ben: Read into it however you want.
Marlena: Well, you showed up. It was conspicuous timing. The wedding was about to go on.
Ben: You people act like I'm a monster!
[Soft, dramatic music]
Maybe because of what I did, i am. But when I escaped bayview... I could have just disappeared. And I didn'T. I didn'T. Instead, I risked everything so people like sonny and you and everyone else that cared about will would know the truth. What do I get for my efforts?
Disrespect? Worse than that, I get treated like dirt--I get attacked, I get shunned and scorned like i rained on your damn parade! Screw that.
[Whispers] Screw that. I'm done...wasting my energy... on a bunch...of ingrates. So I say...
[Screaming] To hell with all of you!
[Dramatic music continues]
Chad: We've been through a lot... came out the other side.
Abigail: Mm-hmm. Stronger than ever.
Chad: Love you so much. More than words...could ever express.
Abigail: Well, then how 'bout you find another way?
Abigail: Uh-huh, uh-huh...
Victor: I realize you needed a little push to take control of the situation.
Brady: I should have thought it out more thoroughly.
Victor: Would you rather eric was still here? Working side-by-side with nicole every day, day after day? Maybe even sleeping together--
Brady: Stop--don'T. Don'T. Don't do that.
Victor: No? Which would be worse... the guilt of his leaving or... the constant worry that the two of them make a fool of you? You'd be made into a cuckold.
Brady: [Scoffs] Cuckold. What is--what is with that word?
Victor: Don't know what it means, look it up.
Brady: I know what it means.
Victor: Then get on with it. You made the right choice. Live with it--stop kicking yourself. You won.
Brady: I'm glad I won. Just wish I was happier about the way I did it.
Nicole: I can'T...believe that brady knew how eric felt about me. Did eric tell him too?
Chloe: No. I did that...accidentally. Brady acted like he already knew, but I had my doubts. But then when I said it, the look on his face--I could tell that he didn't actually know a thing.
Nicole: It's hard to believe that...brady's known this whole time and didn't do anything.
[Lightly edgy music]
Chloe: Well, uh... he...he told eric to fire you.
Nicole: What? But he didn't fire me.
Chloe: Yeah. Because eric couldn't bear the idea of making you leave a job that you love.
Nicole: So he left a job he loved instead.
Chloe: Yeah, I mean, the thing is, eric cares about you and brady. I mean, he just--he didn't want to interfere with your happiness.
Nicole: That's what brady said at the wedding in front of all those people-- you have to do...everything you can, no matter what or who gets in your way, to be with the person you love. I guess this is...what he was talking about.
Chloe: I hope that you don't hate me for telling you this.
Nicole: No, I... I don'T. I...I'm glad you did.
Chloe: So... what are you gonna do now?
[Dramatic musical buildup]
It's all pop-culture trivia, but it gets pretty intense.
Gabi: So they--they did it. Chad and...and abigail got married again.
Gabi: Good for them.
Rafe: Are you okay?
Gabi: Yeah. Of course.
[Stammers] I...I knew the wedding was gonna happen. I just...thought that with everything that happened today, it just--well, you know what, it doesn't even matter. Doesn't matter.
Rafe: You see this? See, that'S...
Rafe: That's why I did not want you messing with her.
Gabi: Rafe, stop, okay? Please stop trying to protect me.
Rafe: I'm not gonna stop protecting you, okay? I'm your big brother. It's my job. I am always gonna protect you, and I don't give a damn if you or anyone else has a problem with that, okay?
Eli: Message received.
Gabi: You know what? You're actually right about something. I've had a really long day. It's a lot for me to take in, so I would like some alone time.
Rafe: You heard her.
Gabi: Can you go, please? I'll be fine.
Eli: Well, uh...I should... I should probably get going too.
Gabi: I'm sorry about rafe.
Eli: No, it's--it's fine. I'd be the same way if you were my sister. But...
[Both chuckle] I'm glad you're not.
Gabi: Me, too.
Eli: Okay, well, look, I-- I just really wanted to make sure that you're okay about chad and abigail. Are you?
Chad: Is there anything... mrs. Dimera would like before she retires for the evening?
Abigail: Mmm...forgot how much I love it when you call me mrs. Dimera. Mrs. Dimera.
Chad: Well, lucky for you, you're gonna be hearing it for the rest of your life, so...
Abigail: You know, there is something I would like.
Chad: Name it.
Abigail: I wanna go upstairs, and I wanna spend the whole night with you.
Abigail: After you.
John: Hey... how you doin', buddy?
Paul: I-I just hope that I'll...I'll be able to help sonny get through the pain of losing will all over again.
John: What do you mean?
Paul: Well, that's what it's gonna be like when marlena gets ben to admit that he was lying.
John: Okay. Let me ask you somethin'. Have you given any thought as to how... you're gonna handle it if... ben's telling the truth?
Ben: I have to say... you know how to keep your cool. Didn't even flinch when I blew up just now.
Marlena: I think you were raging for a reason.
Ben: For what?
[Softly] I watched you in the church. I saw your face. I saw the remorse. I saw the regret you felt at hurting willing.
Ben: You need to get your eyes checked.
Marlena: You were friends. You were close friends. And will was kind to you.
Ben: Lotta good that did him, huh?
[Sniffles] Guy shoulda known I was a lost cause.
Marlena: He never felt that way about you.
Ben: Think I care?
Marlena: [Whispers] I do. I think you do care.
Ben: What do you want from me?
Marlena: I'd like some answers from you. I think it'll be easy for you.
Ben: You'd be wasting your time.
[Cuffs clink against table] But, hey, I got nothing better to do. Fire away.
Nicole: How... how could I be so clueless?
Chloe: Well, don't blame yourself. Eric and brady both did a darn good job of keeping this from you.
Nicole: Would you mind... watching holly for a few hours?
Chloe: Of course not.
Nicole: You sure?
Holly: Are you kidding? I love spending time with her. But where are you going?
Nicole: Honey, mommy has to go do something. I'll be back.
Chloe: Are you gonna go confront brady?
Nicole: She's just had a bottle, so she shouldn't be hungry for a while.
Chloe: Nicole, please tell me what you're gonna go do.
Nicole: I'll be in touch.
[Lightly edgy music]
Brady: Think about this before you do something rash, okay? I'm telling you, these campaigns are coming along well. You tell me what marketing needs, and I can make it happen. That's not a problem.
Sonny: What the hell do you think you're doing?
Brady: Call you back. What am I doing? Those employees that you fired? Created one hell of a mess. They're off getting better jobs, okay, so I authorized marketing to compensate the existing employees for overtime.
Well, that's not your decision to make.
Brady: Well, since I've been making most of the decisions since you've been in jail, I--
Sonny: Well, I'm not in jail anymore, am I?
Victor: What is all this yelling about?
Sonny: Uncle vic, could you kindly inform your grandson that I am still the ceo, and as ceo, i am the one in charge.
Brady: Sonny, sonny. You--look, you've been through a lot--you're obviously a wreck from what happened today. I don't blame you. Why don't you take some time--
Sonny: No, I don't need any time--I need you out of my way!
Brady: Well, I'm sorry! I'm not ready to give up this job, and from the look of it, my friend, you're in no position to take it back!
Paul: You're not buying any of this garbage, are you?
John: Hey, come on, son. You know me. I just think it's important to... always be prepared for any possibility.
Paul: What I am prepared for is to help sonny work through having his hope shattered once again. And what this psychopath is doing--this is beyond cruel!
John: Hey, can't argue with that.
Paul: I mean, he's just trying to mess with our relationship. He's not gonna succeed, though. I mean, look, you were there at the church, right?
Paul: Y-you heard sonny say that I was his true north... that I was able to bring him back from heartache.
John: Yeah, I heard that, and you did.
Paul: And I'll do it again if I have to. I'll be damned if I let ben weston destroy what sonny and i have together!
Marlena: Ben... let's start with what happened at the church. You said will was alive.
Marlena: How is that possible?
Ben: I don't know.
Marlena: Did, um... did you...did you see him... alive after you strangled him?
Marlena: But you're sure that he survived.
Marlena: I-I don't understand--if you did see him dead, then how is it possible that he did survive it?
Ben: I don't know.
Marlena: Did somebody tell you?
Is that it? Did somebody tell you that... will is alive?
Marlena: Who told you? Was it a voice in your head?
Marlena: It was a real person.
Marlena: Somebody at bayview?
Marlena: A-a-a doctor, a nurse, an orderly, a-a-a patient?
Ben: No, no, no.
Marlena: A visitor?
[Dramatic music swells]
[Whispers] A visitor. Who was it? Ben...who came to see you?
Rafe: Hey, what's goin' on?
Hope: Hey. Uh, marlena, she's trying to get something out of weston.
Rafe: Ha. Well, good luck with that. What else?
Hope: Oh, I'm sorry, i forgot, I wanted to tell you that abe called me. He has an idea about...a great choice for a new partner for you.
Rafe: Oh. Well... no one's gonna be better than you.
Hope: You haven't even heard who it is.
Rafe: Oh, r--okay. Who is it?
Hope: Eli grant.
Rafe: You gotta be kiddin' me.
John: All right, so what happened?
Paul: Did ben lie? Did he admit that he was lying about will?
Marlena: He was able to tell me enough so I could put the piece of the puzzle together. And with all of your help... I think I can solve this.
Gabi: My brother has a way of, um, blowing things out of proportion when it comes to protecting me.
Eli: Gabi, he just doesn't wanna see you hurt.
Gabi: Well, he's the one that's hurting me! Do you know how many guys he's tried to scare off before i could even get to know them?
Eli: Well, he didn't scare me. In fact...I'm kinda glad he jumped all over me.
Gabi: [Small laugh] You are?
Eli: Well, if hadn't, I never woulda got to see you stand up for me.
Gabi: Oh, yeah, well, don't let that get to your head.
Eli: [Laughs] I won'T. Look, I-I just hope he wasn't right about me taking advantage of you at a bad time.
Gabi: We were having fun, okay? I always have fun with you.
Eli: I always have fun with you too. But...you have been through a lot today. And if I overstepped--
Gabi: You didn'T.
mm, for once
in my life
I feel a little good thing
in your eyes
I only wanna love you
and hold you tight
I feel fine
because you're mine
Eli: So you're sure that i didn't cross the line.
Eli: When I kissed you.
Gabi: Oh...that. No. Positive.
Eli: Okay. Because, honestly, I'm serious. That is the last thing that I'd want to do.
Gabi: [Laughs] You wanna know the truth?
Eli: [Laughs] Yes!
Gabi: I could not have gotten through today without you. And I have no regrets about that kiss.
Eli: Neither do I.
Gabi: And as far as what happens next...
Eli: I know. We should take it slow. You've been through a lot lately. We don't need to rush things.
Gabi: [Softly] Yeah.
Eli: I'm glad we kissed, though. I don't regret it.
Gabi: Me too.
Eli: And now...
Eli: I think I should take you home.
Chad: You promise that, uh, we'll be together forever.
Abigail: I promise.
Chad: Can't lose you.
Abigail: You won'T. You're my husband, and I'm your wife. Forever.
Paul: Ah, finally, something that makes sense--thank you, marlena, thank you.
John: Good job not backin' down. Looks like your hunch is gonna pay off.
Hope: Let's talk about the visit that you had at bayview.
Ben: I don't remember any visitor.
Hope: How could you forget? He may have used an alias to get inside. But surely, you haven't forgotten...
Sonny: What part of temporary do you not understand?
Brady: We've already been over this a million times.
Sonny: You're right, we have! And I told you then and I'm gonna tell you again--you covering for me at titan was a short-term solution.
Brady: All right, well, I'm gonna tell you something I told you before--the company's doing great right now; it has been while I've been in charge. Profits, morale--they're up. You're not throwing me out.
Sonny: I'm not trying to throw you out--I'm having you step down to the job you had before.
Brady: Well, I'm not stepping down.
Sonny: Uncle vic, would you like to say something?
Victor: What do you want me to say?
Sonny: That brady needs to step aside, and I'm gonna be back in charge--starting now.
