Provided By Suzannechad: Hey. Hey. Abby, you okay?
Chad: You okay?
Abigail: No, I--I... jordan--jordan was here. She...
Chad: No, she's not.
Abigail: No, she was here. She said that she came back for charlotte. [Exhales]
Chad: It's just a-- it's just A... just a nightmare. Hope-- remember? Hope called last night. Jordan ridgeway, she was arrested, okay? Charlotte's home. She's safe. So is thomas. You're safe.
Abigail: Oh, my god.
Chad: Charlotte's safe.
Abigail: Oh, it was awful.
Chad: I know. We're all safe. Okay? Okay. We're safe.
Will: Were you just, uh-- were you just watching me sleep?
Sonny: Yeah. Not a bad first sight in the morning.
Will: Really? Even with my--with my bedhead?
Sonny: After the past few months we had... I'll take you however I can get you. And your bedhead... is pretty adorable. But not as adorable as your stomach growling.
Will: Oh, you heard that, huh?
Sonny: Mm-hmm. I was thinking maybe I could run and go get us some breakfast? Bring you some pancakes?
Will: You know what? Hold on.
Will: No, no, no, I just-- I just want to look at you. Just for a bit. How could I ever forget how beautiful you are? How beautiful we are... together.
Leo: What the hell is this?
Gabi: Oh, that's a throw pillow from the gabi chic collection. Do you like it? I'm branching out into interior design.
Leo: You tied me to the bed?
Gabi: Okay, please give me your honest opinion: Do you like the pattern? I know it's a little bit bold. And I think that this particular shade doesn't go very well with your coloring. I mean, you are awfully red in the face. Oh, I would conserve your strength. It's a double knot.
Leo: Let me give you some advice, one bitch to another: Untie me right now, or I will redecorate your pretty little face.
Marlena: Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm. You haven't touched your breakfast.
John: Ah, not all that hungry.
Marlena: Little too much champagne?
John: No, I'm not hungover if that's what you mean.
Marlena: Ah. Mm. It was a wonderful valentine's day.
John: Yeah, it was, sweetheart.
Marlena: You seem distracted. Is something on your mind?
John: So leo really is my son. How could you keep this from me? Why didn't you tell me that we had a child together?
Diana: If you recall, we didn't part on the best terms. I felt so guilty for accidentally shooting you. I left town, and by the time I found out I was pregnant, I had met somebody else.
John: Doc, there's something we need to talk about.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Marlena: Honey, you're obviously upset. What is it? What's going--
John: Well-- go ahead, take it.
Marlena: I'm sorry. Maybe it's work. Oh, no, it's, uh... salem pd. They want me for an evaluation.
John: Mm. All right, well, it sounds like you got some business to take care of. Why don't you, uh--why don't you go wrap that up, and then we'll talk, okay?
Marlena: So sorry.
John: Yeah. Good luck, sweetheart.
Gabi: Are you sure you want to be making threats? You're in no position.
Leo: I swear to you, as soon as I get out of these--
Gabi: I will lay you out. Again. You don't remember how you got here, do you? Let me refresh your memory: I knocked you out with a punch. I admit, getting you positioned, that was a little tricky, but like I said: Tying you up, double knots.
Leo: Yeah, yeah, you made your point.
Gabi: And if it makes you feel any better, you're not the first man to lose a fight to me. I grew up with older brothers and they made sure I learned how to take care of myself.
Leo: You know, you're obviously very well prepared.
Leo: You wanted to do this right. Kudos, by the way. But would you mind enlightening me as to why you've decided to hold me hostage?
Gabi: Oh, I have an excellent reason. Sonny and will? The guys that you have put through hell? The ones that hate you with every cell of their being? They are my daughter's fathers. And they're great fathers, I might add-- people that I would do anything for. And when I found out that some guy--some jerk--was trying to hurt them, well, that jerk landed on my you-know-what list.
Leo: Hmm. Okay, uh, your daughter is very lucky. God knows my parents never looked out for each other. But you've got this all wrong. Ass-backwards, in fact.
Gabi: Oh, really? How so?
Leo: Well, see, my "trying to hurt" will and sonny? It's only in retaliation, if you will. Your little girl's wonderful daddies not only tried to hurt me, they tried to wipe me off the face of the earth when they attempted to murder me in cold blood.
Lani: I would say good morning, but judging by your face, it's definitely not. What are you working on?
Eli: Oh, you know, just documenting my own incompetence. I'm writing my report on ben weston's escape from custody.
Lani: How's your head?
Eli: It's fine. But my pride? That's taken a beating. I can't believe I let weston get the drop on me.
Lani: Hey, he was behaving. He hadn't put up a fight. You had no reason to think that he would get the upper hand.
Eli: I know you're just trying to make me feel better. I appreciate it. At least I get my service weapon back from chad. Day can only go up from here, right?
Lani: I wouldn't be too sure about that. In fact, I know this will make your day feel worse.
Chad: You okay now?
Abigail: Yeah, I'm good.
Chad: Do me a favor. No more-- no more nightmares about jordan ridgeway. That woman doesn't deserve to be in your mind. She doesn't deserve to occupy that real estate.
Abigail: I'll try. Thank you. I'm sorry I woke you up.
Chad: Ah, I wasn't sleeping. I was awake. I was watching you sleep.
Chad: Just...I'm just grateful.
Abigail: I'm grateful too. So grateful. I have my daughter back. I have my family back. And you, the love of my life.
Chad: As long as we stick together... and we're honest with each other, nothing can come between us.
Eli: What is it?
Lani: Open it and find out.
Eli: No way!
Eli: "I'll wait forever" by the mynah birds. With neil young on the guitar and rick james on the vocals-- before he was rick james!
Lani: [Laughs] A rare piece of motown history.
Eli: Where'd you find this?
Lani: I have my resources. And I know you've been looking for it for a long time.
Eli: Yeah, so much I'd about given up. This is awesome. Thank you. But why'd you say this would make me feel worse?
Lani: Because I got you something for valentine's day and you didn't get me anything.
Diana: John! I'm glad I ran into you. I wanted to ask you... um, how was your valentine's with marlena? You said you had a romantic evening planned.
John: Yeah, it was fine.
Diana: Then you didn't tell her about our son?
John: No, I didn'T.
Diana: Then you will keep it between us?
John: No, I won'T. She deserves to know. In fact, I was going to tell her this morning, but she got called away on a consult with salem pd. But when she finishes that up, I'm coming clean.
Diana: I really don't think you should do that.
Leo: So after will and sonny bashed my head in, they rolled me up in an antique rug, threw me in the trunk of a car, and left me to die. Although technically, I can't hold that last part against them, considering they already thought I was dead.
Gabi: I'm sure there's another side to this story. And even if everything you're saying is true, knowing will and sonny, you probably had it coming to you.
Leo: So that makes it right? An eye for an eye? Uh, don't answer that. Look, I swear to you, those guys were cruel to me and wanted me dead! All I've done is try to make a life for myself after that horrible, traumatic experience. I'm the innocent victim here!
Gabi: Honey, you are innocent like I am mother teresa. Or are you also denying that you're using this "attempted murder" to blackmail sonny into a loveless marriage?
Sonny: I love you. I love you so much.
Will: You know, when--when-- when the memory of the first time that we made love came back to me--along with all my other memories-- I thought I knew what it would be like, you know, to kiss you and...to touch you and to make love to you. But, um, remembering something and living something--not the same thing. I forgot how... how alive being with you makes me feel. I love you too, sonny.
Abigail: [Yawns] She went right back to sleep. I just patted her back for a little bit, gave her her pacifier.
Chad: Is thomas sleeping?
Abigail: Uh, no, actually. Mom took him to story time at the library so that we could have some time alone with charlotte.
Abigail: What's goi on? Heyodi timwith tanids...
Chad: He just said that he's been forced to pass on several lucrative deals, costing dimera millions.
Abigail: Okay, but, um, you can fix this. You just have go to the board and present your side. You know? You have to fight. You have to do whatever you can to make sure that stefan doesn't get control over that company.
Chad: What if I don't want to?
Eli: Look, I wanted to give you something last night. I was going to, but I just fi--
Lani: But we were a little tied up with charlotte and ciara's kidnappings. Crime doesn't take a holiday, right?
Eli: So you're letting me off the hook?
Lani: Consider this your official get-out-the-doghouse free card. Only good once.
Eli: Wow, I--I appreciate that.
Eli: But you mind if I save it? Because this year... I'm covered.
Lani: What is this?
Eli: Open it and find out.
Lani: [Laughs] Two tickets to the chicago symphony?
Eli: Best seats for the string section. And if it's not, we can always demand our money back.
Lani: But you don't like classical music. Are you really gonna sit through three hours of cello concertos?
Eli: I will do anything for my girl.
Sonny: You know, I think I remember every time--every time--we've ever kissed and every time we've ever made love.
Will: Every time? Really?
Sonny: I'm serious. Because when I thought I lost you--the first time, when i thought you...were gone, and the second time, to paul-- I just sat around the house torturing myself, thinking about every moment we ever spent together. And I know exactly how you feel about forgetting.
Will: Well, how could you?
Sonny: Because every time I kiss you... it's new and exciting. And every time I'm with you, it'S... it's like the first time all over again.
Will: But what if it's the last time?
Gabi: Wow, you really are a despicable human being. Keeping two good people who love each other apart just to satisfy your own greed and lust.
Leo: Why shouldn't I be compensated for my pain and suffering? For the horrible trauma I suffered that still gives me nightmares? Sonny and will tried to kill me and covered it up without giving it a second thought.
Gabi: Okay, well, even if all of that is true, who's gonna believe a creep like you? A lowlife who would fake a sexual harassment claim just to get some money. God forbid you work a day in your life.
Leo: First of all, the sexual harassment suit was never proven to be fake, and second, I have proof that those two putzes tried to obliterate me.
Gabi: Oh yeah? What proof is that?
Leo: Uh, I got photos, honeybun--photos of them taking my body and rolling it up in a rug--photos of them taking said body and dumping it in the trunk of a car. If I were to share these highly incriminating photos, will and sonny will be locked up--and kept apart, I might add--for the rest of their lives.
Gabi: Hmm. Yeah, I see your point. However, "honeybun"... you can't really do that if you're tied to a bed. See ya.
Leo: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait! Please. How long do you plan on keeping me tied up like this?
Gabi: That remains to be seen.
Diana: Matthew-- leo--has no idea that you are his real father. If he finds out the truth, he is not going to appreciate being lied to all these years. And he could get very angry. In fact, when leo gets angry... god only knows what he might do.
Leo: Mom, he was scum! And I did you and the world a favor by getting rid of him.
Diana: Oh! You still think you did the right thing?
Leo: Yes, definitely. Even if that means that I have to live with the fact that I killed my father.
John: What do you mean by that? What are you trying to tell me about my son? In an era of online retail,
Will: Last night was so perfect.
Sonny: I know. Now we have to wake up from this dream and get back to reality.
[Phone ringing] Gabi. Is everything okay?
Gabi: Oh, for me? Yeah, sure. But leo?
Sonny: Where is he?
Gabi: Oh, he's currently tied up--not very happy about that. You know, that creep tried every single trick to get me to let him go. He even told me that you and will tried to kill him.
Sonny: Well, unfortunately, it wasn't a trick. Um... actually, I mean, it was, because we weren't actually trying to kill him. He fell and hit his head when I was stopping him from strangling will and then we thought he was dead.
Gabi: I knew there was another side to the story. But if it was an accident--
Sonny: Unfortunately, there's no proof. Just will and me getting rid of leo's body--or at least what we thought was his body.
Gabi: Well, I'm guessing I don't need to tell you this, but you do know he's threatening to take this proof to the police? And I also don't need to tell you this: From the little time that I spent with him, leo starke seems like the man who gets his jollies from making other people miserable any old way he can, consequences be damned. Now, the question is, sonny, how far are you and will willing to go to stop him?
Diana: Let me just say this: Our son has always had daddy issues, and hearing this news could make him lash out, take it out on me... or use it as an excuse to punish sonny and will even more than he already has. John, I know you value honesty. I respect that, especially between a husband and a wife. But trust me, it is in everybody's best interest if you just let this go.
John: Sorry, diana. Look, I get that we're both gonna deal with some serious fallout when the truth comes to light. The longer we wait, we're just setting ourselves up for more damage. So when doc is done at the cop shop... I'm just gonna tell her everything.
Marlena: So you think that jordan has had a psychotic break?
Eli: The woman kidnapped the commissioner's daughter and took an innocent baby from her mother. I don't want anything compromising this case. I'm making sure I do this by the book.
Marlena: And you want me to determine if she's fit to be questioned.
Eli: Lani just brought her up from holding. She's in interrogation now, so soon as you give me the okay, we can start working on putting this woman behind bars.
Chad: Jordan ridgeway was arrested.
Abigail: Oh, thank god.
Chad: Stefan can cause havoc wherever the hell he is.
Abigail: Look, chad, you said multiple times that you were willing to give up your stake in the company, but I don't want to be the reason for that.
Chad: Why? What better reason is there? Seriously. Seriously, you and thomas, charlotte--you're my life. You're my family. Being a dimera has caused me nothing but-- but grief. Stefan took advantage of you when you were vulnerable, and thankfully, we were able to get past that. I'm not gonna risk that happening again. What am I gonna do? I'm gonna stay here, I'm gonna try to neutralize him and make him pay for everything that he's done to us? How long is that gonna take? I don't know. I don't want to waste any more time. I want A... I want a new start for us. For you, for me... for our beautiful children.
Abigail: What exactly are you saying?
Chad: What if we left salem? I'm mildly obsessed with numbers.
Abigail: You want to leave salem?
Chad: Stefan can be the ceo of dimera. I'll run operations in hong kong. Belle and shawn are already there. They can help with the transition.
Abigail: Hong kong? Um...
[Clears throat] The last time I was there...
Chad: Okay, um... paris. I offered--I offered eve that job.
Abigail: She didn't take it.
Chad: No, she didn't, which means the position needs to be filled. Right? You would-- you love paris. The kids would love paris. We could have an incredible-- just incredible life in the city. The kids would love it, and then we could have a little country chateau for the weekends.
Abigail: [Laughing] What?
Chad: Come on.
Abigail: This is--this is just--this is a lot to think about.
Chad: I know it's a big move, and I know it's a lot easier for me because i don't have much family here-- I have kate. You have...
Chad: Your brother and your mom, your dad--you just got your dad back. I would understand if you don't want to do this.
Roman: Hey, john.
Roman: How are you doing this fine morning?
Roman: Not so fine, huh?
John: Not especially.
Roman: Let me guess. It's about leo.
John: Yeah, it's about leo. Colville is... she's kind of pressuring me not to tell marlena that I'm his father.
Roman: Well, you know, last time we talked, you were determined to tell marlena. You change your mind?
John: [Sighs] I'm conflicted, roman. You know, I'm not so sure if the truth coming out is what's best right now.
Marlena: Eli, I would have to file a formal repor--
Diana: If you're looking for the nice detective, he stepped away.
Marlena: What are you doing here? Police business?
Diana: Actually, I'm here to see you. I ran into john earlier. He said I'd find you here. I've come to apologize for being not quite honest when we first met. I did like your radio show, and I should have told you the truth about john.
Marlena: Skip the apology. I know exactly what you're hiding.
Will: I'm guessing leo did not enjoy his valentine's day.
Sonny: Not at all, no. But thanks to gabi keeping hubby dearest occupied, I had the best valentine's day of my life.
Will: You know, I know leo brought gabi up to speed on all of his threats, but... do you think that we're worrying too much?
Sonny: I mean, the man has zero conscience. He made a false claim of sexual harassment against me and then-- and then he blackmailed me into marrying him. He--
Will: Yeah, I'm not he's not an opportunist or that he has any sort of moral core at all, but what if an opportunist is all he is? Think about it: If he turns us in, he's gonna have to give up his cushy life at the kiriakis mansion.
Sonny: And he loves his good life. For him to keep it, he's gotta stay married to me.
Will: Are you sure we can't pay him off?
Sonny: I just think whatever we give him, he's gonna keep asking for more. This has to be dealt with now, will. No more payoffs, no more trying to appease this bastard in any way. I'm over it.
Will: Me too. We gotta get rid of him-- together, once and for all.
Sonny: No, he's my problem. I will take care--
Will: No, no, he's our problem. I'm not letting you do this alone.
Sonny: I'm gonna warn you that this could get messy.
Will: Well, I've got the stomach for it.
Leo: [Panting] Just a little bit more. Come on.
[Groans, sighs] Damn it, gabi.
[Huffs] You know what? I am done letting you use me for free advertising. This is the ugliest pillow I have ever seen in my life, and when I get off of this thing--
Oh, god. Oh, god, please, no. No, no! Not the family jewels! No! The noble tortilla was created
Gabi: Next time, I will use these somewhere else.
Gabi: Perfect timing.
Will: Oh, um, gabi, thank you for--thanks for last night.
Gabi: Yeah, don't mention it. Hey, do you guys want me to stick around, help you deal with leo?
Sonny: Uh, thanks, but we've got it from here.
Gabi: Okay. Go get 'em.
Will: [Exhales] So are you ready?
Sonny: More than.
John: Diana says that leo's got issues. And if he were to find out that I was his father, he could get angry and he could take the anger out on will and sonny, and that's the last thing I want.
Roman: Or he could find out you're his father, wants to forge a relationship. You use that influence to talk some sense into him, right?
John: Yeah, yeah. I guess anything's possible.
Roman: But you don't think it's likely?
John: [Sighs] The way diana talks about the guy? No.
Roman: Well, obviously, diana knows leo better than you do. But... can you trust her?
Marlena: John and I don't keep secrets from each other. He told me everything about his relationship with you.
Diana: Then please understand the position I found myself in when I ran into you. I didn't know what you knew. I didn't feel it was my place to tell you.
Marlena: Just to be clear, we didn't "run into" each other. You sought me out. I didn't even know you.
Diana: I did, yes.
[Chuckles] I suppose my little deception seems very foolish right now. But again, please try to understand. When john and I were together, he told me everything about you. I couldn't help but be a little curious about the woman that john could never forget. I truly am sorry, marlena.
Marlena: All right. Apology accepted.
Diana: But please, before you go... there is something that you should know.
Abigail: You're right. This would be really tough for me--to leave my family and...everyone here, but I... I mean, after the year that I've had--after the last few years, I can't say that it's not tempting to have a fresh start with...our family-- with charlotte and thomas. And everyone we love would be just be a flight away.
Chad: What are you saying?
Abigail: I know what a monumental decision this is... but I know what I want, and I know what I need, and I... I... yes.
Abigail: Yes. I--yeah.
Chad: [Laughs] Yes! So there you are with your depression
Chad: Of course. Thank you, mr. Shin. He's, uh--he's thrilled I'm taking the position in paris.
Abigail: Yeah? Okay. What?
Chad: He's, uh... it's a big decision for the company. He's concerned about the rollout, so he wants me there to help him. He said asap.
Abigail: Okay, how soon is asap?
Chad: Tonight. He wants me there in the morning.
Abigail: Tonight? What? Uh, he wants you in paris tomorrow m--
Chad: I know. I know. I know that it's really fast, so if you want, I could go there and then you could just meet--you and the kids can meet me when you guys are ready.
Abigail: No. No, I--I--I...look. I'm ready now, okay? If we are gonna do this, then we have to do this together. Right? We just have to figure out how to say good-byes.
Chad: Well, we can do it at the wedding.
Abigail: What wedding?
Chad: I'm not leaving salem without making you my wife. Abigail deveraux... will you be my wife...
Abigail: Oh, my god.
Chad: Again? Again-again.
John: You know, it's been a long time since colville and i were together, but... back then, I'm telling you, roman, she was as good-hearted as they come.
Roman: People change, john. Look, I am not an overly cynical guy, but I'm wondering if diana wants you to keep this secret about leo because she's worried about her son... or because she just likes you keeping secrets from marlena.
John: You think she's trying to come between us?
Roman: Possible, isn't it? What if diana is just trying to cause trouble?
Marlena: Diana... you don't have to say anything else. John has told me everything I need to know about your relationship.
Diana: Actually, it's about my son, matthew--leo.
Marlena: Leo? So this about leo and sonny?
Diana: No. I'm sorry. What I have to tell you isn't about that.
Leo: Well, well, well. Look who's home. I figured you had your baby mama keep me otherwise engaged so you could spend valentine's day together. Hope you enjoyed yourselves.
Sonny: Yeah, we did.
Will: And we intend to enjoy every night of our lives together from now on.
Sonny: We're done letting you keep us apart, leo, so our sickening little arrangement is over.
Leo: Yeah? Well, it was fun while it lasted. But I guess all good things have to come to an end.
Sonny: So that's it? You're not going to give us a hard time? No hissy fit? No threats?
Leo: What for? We're in complete agreement.
[Door clicks open]
Eli: Mr. Starke?
Leo: Detectives, I told henderson to let you right in. I hope you weren't waiting long?
Lani: For what? What did you call us down here for?
Leo: I'd like to report an attempted murder. These two tried to kill me, and I have proof.
