[Soft music]

Jennifer: Eric?

Eric: Come in.

[Soft music]

Jj: 'Kay, so the vending machines don't have the healthiest food, but I got a granola bar, some mango chips, and a water.

Lani: You're sweet, but...I'm good.

Jj: Kayla says she wants you hydrated, and I agree. So does junior.

[Quietly] Don't ya? Have some water.

Lani: You know, really didn't have to come with me. It's just a routine exam-- blood pressure, vitals. Weight. Really boring.

Jj: There's nothing boring about having my child.'re stuck with me. And after all, this little girl or guy is just as much my baby as it is yours. Right?

[Quiet instrumentals]

Eli: I don't care what you've heard--I can't comment on an ongoing investigation.

Valerie: Ouch.

Eli: Hey, mom. Look, I'm afraid I can't talk right now--I got two suspects in on the andre dimera murder case. I'm a little crazed.

Valerie: Okay, okay, listen, I won't keep you. I just wanted to know did you get a chance to talk with lani?

Eli: Yes, I did.

Valerie: And?

Eli: She said the baby is jj'S.

Valerie: And you believe her?

[Contemplative music]

Will: "To will. I have found the one in whom my soul delights... the man that I'm destined to be with... all the days of my life. I love you, sonny."

[Knock on door]

[Dramatic musical flourish]

Kayla: Hey.

Steve: Hey.

Kayla: You know, I think these actually work better if you wear them. Have they been helping?

Steve: Well...they were helping, and then they weren'T. And I'd like to know why.

[Heavy music]

John: Need another dose. Well, he might be naive, but no, I don't think it's ever crossed his mind he's being poisoned by his best friend.

[Intense music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Sonny: Can I come in?

Will: Sure. Yeah.

[Soft, contemplative music]

What, uh... what brings you by?

Sonny: Well, I wanted to see if what brady told me... was true.

Will: If what was true?

Sonny: That right after you moved outta my place, you moved straight to paul'S.

John: Yeah, right, I'll just wait for your call.

Paul: Dad. Hey, what's going on?

John: Oh, you are, partner in charge--what are you doing sneaking up on your old man like that?

Paul: No, I just finished a run with eric, saw you across the way, uh...looked like a pretty serious phone call.

John: Just a work call to steve.

Paul: Yeah, yeah, I thought i heard you say his name. If there anything I should know, a new case?

John: No. Client wants to keep it between me and steve for now.

Paul: Okay. You mind, uh, holding this water bottle? I gotta tie my shoe.

John: Yeah, yeah, sure.

Paul: What was that in your hand?

[Edgy music]

Kayla: I thought the glasses were working.

Steve: Yeah, not anymore. My vision's blurry again. It's worse than before.

Kayla: And the dizziness?

Steve: Still dizzy.

Kayla: Okay, that's it. Let's go.

Steve: Where?

Kayla: To the hospital.

Steve: No, baby, come on--

Kayla: No, no, no! You know what? No excuses, okay? You have a problem.

Steve: It could get better on its own--I don't need to go to the hospital.

Kayla: You're a tough guy, and you think that you can power through anything, but this is serious, okay? We need to get you to the hospital, we need to do some tests and have a full checkup.

Steve: Can we do it tomorrow? I have a lot of work to do.

Kayla: Well, you know, work can wait. Look...we are in this together. Let's go.

[Dramatic music]

Weight watchers is a way of living.

Jennifer: I should have called first. Actually, I-I did call. You didn't answer, so...

Eric: I went on a run with paul. I didn't have my phone with me.

Jennifer: Yeah, no, of course. Listen, why don't I go, and then when you're done getting dressed, I can just--

Eric: No, no, no, it's all right. Are you okay?

Jennifer: No. No, I'm not. I have some bad news.

Eric: Is it the baby?

Jennifer: No, no, jj and lani's baby is fine. It's your father.

Eric: What happened?

Jennifer: He's in police custody.

Eli: I believe lani, all right? The truth is, the baby isn't mine.

Valerie: [Sighs] Eli, it's not that simple. You're with gabi. She's with jj. Maybe for lani, the truth isn't quite as important as not blowing your lives up and turning them upside down.

Eli: She's two months pregnant, mom... not one. All right? She's already told me that when she spent the night that night, she was already pregnant, so there's nothing there.

Valerie: I would just hate for you to be kept in the dark about a child that could be yours.

Eli: Kinda like how you kept my father in the dark about me?

Lani: These aren't so bad.

Jj: Who knows, maybe it'll be your first craving.

Lani: Mmm. I think I'll hold out for pepperoni pizza with jalapenos.

Jj: Mm-hmm.

Henry: Jj deveraux?

Jj: I am. Do we know each other?

Henry: Henry shah. I'm a friend of your mother. I recognized you from the picture she showed me of you and your sister abigail.

Jj: Ah, okay, yeah. Nice to meet you. This is my girlfriend, lani price. We're pregnant.

Lani: Jj!

Jj: Sorry. Can't help myself.

Henry: Congratulations.

Jj: You know, I thought i knew most of my mom's friends.

Henry: Actually, we've gone out.

Jj: You're dating.

Henry: Well, I guess she didn't mention it.

Jj: Well, I have been a little preoccupied.

Henry: Yeah, having babies'll do that.

Jj: But trust me, I do plan to grill my mom about her love life the next time I see her.

Henry: [Chuckles] You do that--it's nice to meet you both.

Kayla: Henry, just the man I'm looking for.

Henry: What can I do for you?

Kayla: I just wondered if you had some time in your schedule today that you could squeeze my husband in.

Henry: I actually have some time now--what's the problem?

Steve: Well, uh, been having a little trouble with my eyesight. Kayla took me to the eye doctor. He gave me these glasses here. They worked for a little while but then, um, well, the blurry vision is back, with or without them.

Kayla: And he's dizzy. He has headaches. I just think that there's some underlying cause.

Henry: Yeah, happy to run some tests, see what I can find.

Kayla: That'd be great. Thank you.

Henry: You're welcome.

Kayla: You be a good patient, you hear me?

Steve: Yeah. I'm always good, baby.

Kayla: Yeah.

Steve: Which way?

Kayla: Oh, I'm sorry I'm late.

Jj: Is that all you have to say to your nephew?

Kayla: Excuse me?

Jj: Where's the "congratulations! You're going to be a father!"?

Lani: Jj insisted on coming.

Jj: Someone has to keep her fed and hydrated.

Lani: And I told him it wasn't necessary.

Kayla: Uh...lani's right. We're some health history and do some baseline tests, it'S...nothing exciting.

Jj: Mmm. Sounds like you're trying to get rid of me.

Kayla: No, of course not. It's just you''re not really needed right now.

Lani: And...there's that bulls game on--I know you really wanna watch it.

Kayla: Yeah, and knowing my brother, I'm sure he has it on at the pub.

Lani: Don't you wanna go, have a beer?

Jj: You're sure.

Lani: Yes.

Jj: Okay. I-I-I will see you in a little while then. I'll see ya. Okay. And just in case you're wondering, I made sure she took every single prenatal vitamin. Just made sure of it. All right.

Kayla: Well, nephew's pretty excited about the baby.

Lani: He is, and that's a good thing...considering he's the father.

Real cheese people know

good things come in threes.

Eric: My dad was arrested? What did he do?

Jennifer: It involves anna.

Eric: Course it does. What do you know?

Jennifer: I-I don't know much. I got a tip from my contact at the station. Anna was arrested for andre's murder, and unfortunately, roman gave her an alibi for the night.

Eric: He lied for her? Do you know what the specific charges were?

Jennifer: No, I don't know anything, except that they're both being processed right now.

Eric: I should call kayla.

Jennifer: No, eric, please, if you could just hold off on that--my contact didn't want this to go public. I just felt you should know.

Eric: And thank you for that, but I-I should get down there.

Jennifer: You're not gonna be able to see him for a couple of hours, so...

Eric: If it were your family?

Jennifer: I'll come with you.

Eli: Mom, I'm sorry. I didn't mean for it to come out like that.

[Quiet music]

Valerie: One of the biggest regrets of my that i kept your father away from you. But I made that decision out of fear. And I'll always be sorry for it.

Eli: And I was angry for a long time, mom... but I understand now that you were just trying to protect me.

Valerie: And I still am. If this child is yours, eli, i want you to have what your father didn't have-- a chance to fall in love with your child, with your son or your daughter.

Eli: Mom, the baby isn't mine. All right? I trust lani, and if lani said it wasn't mine, then it isn'T. All right? She knows that i wouldn't back away from my responsibility if it was.

Valerie: Exactly. Because you're not that kinda man. You're kind and strong and generous... the kind of man who should know if he's gonna be a father. And that's why I wanna make sure lani is telling you the truth.

Will: I-I didn'T...move in with paul.

Sonny: But you're under the same roof.

Will: Yeah, because my cousin owns this place, and he gave me a great deal. And with no job right now, you know, I need a great deal.

Sonny: Okay, but if money was the problem, you could have just stayed with me.

Will: Why? Because that's who I am? I'm--I'm a guy who leaches off someone that I don't--

Sonny: That you don't what? Love anymore?

Will: This is what I need to do, sonny. This is--this is where I need to be.

Sonny: Here. Not-- how 'bout marlena's? What about your dad? What about your dad? He just got out of rehab.

Will: Nice, perfectly safe know, filled with family pictures and walks down memory lane until one day I wake up and then, "oh, i remember the will that I used to be," but that's not what I want.

Sonny: So you don't wanna remember.

Will: I wanna be the man that I am right now. I don't wanna put my life on hold hoping that maybe I'll remember something that I-i might not ever. And that's why I'm here. That's why I'm on my own. And I--it's time for me to move on.

Sonny: And leave me behind.

[Laughs] I hate this band, you know that? Did paul give you this?

Will: It was in the stuff that mom packed for me. Not that I remember any of it.

[Somber music]

Sonny: Something else you don't remember.

Will: I...did read the inscription, though, it'S...

[Sighs] It's very sweet.

Sonny: I gave this to you the night I proposed. And I still feel the same way about you, will... Every word.

Will: I know. But that's why I had to move out. It's not--it's not fair to you to give you hope for a future when I don'T... I don't feel that way.

[Melancholy music]

Sonny: Is hope a terrible thing? Right? That's what they say.

Will: I--[Sighs] I was gonna... wait until later to give this to you, but... since you're here.

Sonny: Divorce papers.


[Heavy bass chords]

John: [Exhales] Homeopathic eye drops.

Paul: Yeah, I, uh... didn't know that you were, uh, using eye drops. Everything okay?

John: Ah, just growing into some allergies, I guess.

Paul: Oh, yeah.

[Blows] Ha. Well, I hope it clears up.

John: Don't worry about it. Situation'll be over soon.

Paul: Good. Okay, I'm gonna--see you later.

John: Count on it.

[Dark, edgy music]

Forgot your water, kid.

Eli: Last time, mom. Let it go.

Valerie: Okay. But you have to admit the timing is so close. Just what if--

Eli: Mom, mom, please! No more questions. Promise me!

Valerie: O-okay, okay, fine. I will let it go. I will just ignore every alarm in my body...

Eli: Mom--

Valerie: And just be nothing but happy for lani and jj and their new baby.

Jennifer: Valerie. You heard about jj and lani's baby.

Valerie: Uh, y-yeah, we just heard the news.

Jennifer: Oh, yeah, jj is so excited.

Valerie: I-I'm sure, and you too, you're gonna be a grandmother again.

Jennifer: We'll be grandmothers together.

Valerie: What are--

Jennifer: I'm sorry, I know that you're not married to abe yet, but I--

Valerie: Oh, oh--

[Laughs] Grandmothers.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Valerie: Yes. Ha.

Kayla: Well, everything looks great, um... I think you might need a little more rest. Remember to eat, and keep taking those prenatal vitamins.

Lani: Like jj will let me forget? You heard hiM.

Kayla: You know, about what you said about jj being the father earlier... you haven't given any more thought to being honest about who the father really is?

Lani: I thought about it. I really did. But now my father knows. He told valerie. Jj told theo, his mom. People knoW.

Kayla: Does the father know you're pregnant?

Lani: Yeah, I told him.

Kayla: What was his reaction? Did he wonder if maybe he was the father?

Lani: Course he did. And I lied. I told him that this baby is jj'S.

Kayla: And he accepted that.

Lani: Why wouldn't he? I'm sure he was totally relieved. He's one of those noble guys. He would wanna step in and help me raise the kid.

Kayla: A man like that would like to know if he had a child.

Lani: Well, his relationship and mine with jj would just crash and burn? It's not a happy family picture for anyone.

Kayla: What about the baby and its future? Keeping a lie like this, lani--

Lani: Kayla, the baby will be loved.

Kayla: Of course it will be. But there is still time to reconsider.

Lani: And do what? "The right thing"? This is the right thing. For me and for jj and this baby. Look, I know you don't approve of it, but...that's how it has to be. I know I'm doing the right thing. I know it.

Will: I'm sorry, but... if we're making a break, it should be a clean one.

Sonny: [Sighs] Well... that didn't take long.

[Papers rustling]

Will: I know this is hard.

Sonny: Is it? Is it hard? Because you don't seem to have a problem getting on with your life.

Will: [Exhales]

[Unsettling music]

Everything, uh, is in order. It's a straightforward, no-fault divorce, so as soon as you...look it over and sign, then we can file.

[Papers rustling]

Sonny: Just like that. So easy. Just a wave of a pen, and poof! We never happened.

Will: We did happen, sonny, and I'm sorry that I can't be that...[Sighs] I'm sorry I can't be the man that you loved.

Sonny: One day... you are gonna remember our life together. Was it perfect? No. But we did love each other. You, me, and ari... and you're gonna remember that. And when you do, you're gonna realize that everything I wrote in that book... is true.

[Unsettling instrumentals]

Eric: Will you tell me at least what my dad's being charged with, like obstruction of justice? What?

Eli: The charges will be up to the D.A.

Eric: I can't believe this. Can I call an attorney for him?

Eli: I believe roman and anna have already spoken to their daughter, but I can't confirm that.

Jennifer: Carrie? She would have to fly in from switzerland.

Eric: There's gotta be something more I can do.

Eli: I'm sorry, but you guys won't be able to talk to him for several hours. You might as well go home.

[Knock on door]

Lani: Come in. Oh...hi.

Valerie: Hi.

Lani: Um...I thought you were dr. Johnson. If you need the room, I can ju--

Valerie: I was hoping we could talk.

Lani: Sure. What's up?

Valerie: Um... eli... he told me... he told me about what happened between you two on christmas eve.

Lani: Ah...he told you.

Valerie: Yeah. And now you're pregnant.

Lani: We made a mistake. And that's why I've already spoken with eli about my pregnancy. I don't want him thinking that--

Valerie: The baby is his.

Lani: Because it's not. This baby is jj'S.

Valerie: And you're 100% sure of that.

Lani: I'm just a little over two months along. It's definitely jj's, not eli'S.

Valerie: 'Cause, of course, that would be most convenient.

Lani: And it's also the truth. Again, your son and I... we made a mistake, one that we-- we regret. But it would be really great if you could just accept the truth and be happy for me and jj.

Valerie: Yeah. Of course.

Lani: [Laughs] Thank you.

Valerie: Yeah.

[Edgy music]

[Soft music in background]

Sonny: Hey.

Jj: Hey. You missed the game. Bulls lost.

Sonny: I haven't really kept up.

Jj: What? They're you're favorite team.

Sonny: I know. Just been a little, uh... preoccupied.

Jj: Oh, well, being ceo will do that.

Sonny: So will this.

Jj: Divorce papers? Sonny, man, I'M...I'm so sorry. I--

Sonny: Me too.

Jj: I thought will was into making it work.

Sonny: Just hard to make it work when only one person remembers how amazing we were.

Jj: Sonny, maybe he just needs more time.

Sonny: Jj, I have tried to be optimistic. But all he wants is his freedom. And this is his ticket. It's just crazy, 'cause I got this miracle, right? The love of my life comes back into my life. But then it turns out the future that I wanted to have with him is nothing but a black hole.

Jj: Yeah, I know about black holes. After I shot theo, I saw no way out.

Jj: I shoulda been there for you, by the way. I'm really sorry.

Jj: No, no, it's okay. What I'm trying to say is... as dark as things can get--

Sonny: Please don't tell me that the sun will come up tomorrow.

Jj: My point is my life has never been better... and I'm really looking forward to the future. You know, with the baby on the way, I have never been--

Sonny: Wait, wait, wait, hold it--back up. Did you say baby?

Jj: Lani and I are pregnant. Ha. She's due in august.

Sonny: Now, that is amazing news! Congratulations! Wow!

Jj: Thank you. You're gonna have to give me some dad tips.

Sonny: Oh, I have millions of dad tips.

Jj: Listen, man, these...are just papers. Just papers. What matters is what's in your heart. And in time, I hope that will will see and feel that as well.

Sonny: Yeah, you're not the only one.

[Knock on door]

Paul: Hey, you still need this?

Will: Uh, yeah, I still have pictures to hang, so yes. Thank you. Do you...wanna come in?

Paul: No. Thanks anyway.

Will: Okay. Everything okay?

Paul: Uh, not really.

Will: Oh. Do you about it?

Paul: Yeah. I'd like that.

Will: Okay. Depression is a tangle of multiple symptoms

Eric: I just can't believe my dad's gotten into this mess because of anna dimera. I mean, lying for her...

Jennifer: But roman wouldn't have done what he did unless he felt he had to, eric.

Eric: Well, I hope you're right...I mean, anna's really gotten to him.

Jennifer: Well, think about it--I mean, they have a lot of history together.

Eric: Yeah, but a lot of it's not great. I mean, what the hell is he thinking?

Jennifer: I don't know, i mean, sometimes...sometimes we do things for people that we care about that just seem crazy to the rest of the world.

Eric: Well, she's got the crazy covered, that's for sure. It's contagious.

Jennifer: Well, maybe roman is just trying to help someone that he really loves.

Eric: But to lie to the police? I mean, doesn't he understand the risk? I mean, he's jeopardizing everything--his future!

Jenifer: Yeah. That kinda reminds me of someone I know who found an injured convict, brought her home, hid her from the authorities... and "borrowed" some medical supplies from the local hospital--that's crazy.

Eric: No, no, that was different. That was hope. It was the right thing to do.

[Laughs] What?!

Jennifer: You brady men. You just wanna save the world. Just admit it and drink your hot chocolate.

Eric: Mmm.

Paul: Uh... thanks.

Will: So, um... what's--what's going on?

Paul: I wish I knew. And in a weird way, it affects you too.

Will: Okay, well... now you have my attention.

Paul: Uh... it's my dad. I think he's doing something terrible.

Will: Isn't your dad like a superhero, like--[Laughs]

Paul: Yeah, yeah, I've always thought so, um... but, you know, after what i heard... okay, look, um...I-I'm not completely sure, but I swear i heard him tell someone on the phone that... that he was poisoning his best friend.

Will: Steve johnson? Maybe it was like some sort of code or something and they're working on a case together?

Paul: No, see, we're all partners at black patch. If it were a case, I would have known about it. Anyway, when I confronted him, he said he was talking to steve. I mean, he totally lied. Look, something is wrong, and i can feel it in my gut.

Will: Okay. Do you...have any other proof that--that he's poisoning steve other than overhearing him on the phone?

Paul: That's the thing, like, steve, see, his vision has gotten blurry and he's having these dizzy spells and headaches and... and my dad, he had a vial of liquid in his hand, and when i joined him, he tried to hide it.

Will: Do you ask him about it?

Paul: Yeah, yeah. He said that they were eye drops.

Will: Now, I mean, you're-- you're close with your dad, right?

Paul: And he's never been anything but honest with me. And so for him to just lie to me so blatantly... what if he's really doing something to hurt steve?

[Ominous music]

John: Well, you got it? Boy, you don't waste any time, do you?

You know how important this is. You're not having second thoughts, are you?

Valerie: Hey, there you are.

Kayla: Oh, hi.

Valerie: Busy at work, I see.

Kayla: [Chuckles] Oh. I'm sorry. I, uh, I need to talk to my husband.

Valerie: Oh, of course.

Kayla: Hey. How'd the exam go? What did dr. Shah say about your symptoms?

[Dark chords]

Steve: I think we should talk about it in your office.

Hello, aloe.

Eric: I can't thank you enough for telling me about my dad and, you know... talking me down.

Jennifer: You would have done the same for me.

Eric: You know, I'm, uh, I'm really sorry about the other night.

Jennifer: I... I overreacted.

Eric: It's gonna be a while before I can see my dad. You know, maybe I can take you to dinner to thank you.

Henry: Jennifer, eric. Thought that was you.

Jennifer: Henry, hi!

Henry: I was gonna call you to see where you wanna go for dinner. But since you're here, we can go now.

Jennifer: Yeah. I mean, that would be great. Are you--are you good?

Eric: Yeah, absolutely.

Jennifer: I-I'll check in with you later.

Eric: Okay. Thanks again for everything.

Jennifer: Yeah.

[Soft music]

Lani: I'm two months along. Which means...I got pregnant in mid-november. You and I were together on... christmas eve.

Eli: So you were already pregnant?

Lani: I didn't know. Okay? This baby is jj'S. You're off the hook.

[Solemn music]

[Line ringing]

Eli: Hey, gabi, uh, I was just calling to see if we were still on for dinner tonight. Yeah, I'm free as a bird. Perfect. Okay, I'll see you soon. Bye.

Jj: Hey, beautiful.

Lani: Hey, yourself. How was the game?

Jj: Bulls lost.

Lani: Sorry.

Jj: It's okay. I have much, much bigger things to think about. Like baby names and crib and cradle...foot massages and birthing class.

Lani: [Groans] Uhh. Okay, stop it.

Jj: No, you're gonna have to get used to it. You and this baby are the most important things in my life.'d your appointment go?

Lani: Everything's fine. Perfect.

Jj: We're really doing this! Oh, having a baby!

[Lani laughs]

[Suspenseful music]

Valerie: Okay. Let's just see if you're telling me and my son the truth, ms. Lani price.


[Intense music]

[Solemn music]

Will: You honestly think your dad could be poisoning steve?

Paul: I don't want to, buT... okay, look, we were at the pub the other day, and my dad and steve were joking around like they always do. But the idea that my dad could play it so normal with steve and be secretly poisoning him... I mean, that terrifies me.

[Unsettling music]

Who are you calling?

Will: Marlena. If something's going on with john, she needs to know about it.

John: Second thoughts? Can you blame me? This is steve johnson. It's not just my business partner--he's my best friend.

Cry yourself to sleep. Just get the job done.

[Dark, somber music]

Kayla: My office? The diagnosis isn't good, is it?

Steve: No, sweetness. Not so good.
