Ben: [Sighs] Lani, lani, lani.
Ciara: Did you make a new friend?
Ben: It's my nephew'S.
Ben: He and lani just walked by. They must have dropped it. Considering how fast she just tried to get away from me, she didn't even notice.
Ciara: That is so not fair. You're that baby's uncle. Have you had any luck trying to talk to jordan?
Ben: No, I called over to bayview but... doctor still won't let me get in contact with her. Seems like nobody in this town wants me to get to know my own nephew.
Claire: Wait, so you want to frame ben for the fire that I set?
Eve: Why not? You made an impulsive decision. Just like a lot of other girls do at your age. Why should the rest of your life be ruined because of that?
Claire: Mm-hmm. Yeah, but it--it just... is it really fair to frame ben?
Eve: Yeah, it's fair. He killed my daughter. He needs to pay for what he did. And you know what? We'll be doing this town a big favor by using that lighter to frame him.
Claire: All right. Okay. Yeah, um... how do we do it?
Eve: [Sighs] Honey, we will have that conversation another day. Because I'm telling you, it is my wedding day, and I really need to find my groom, okay?
Jennifer: You can stay here with me... and we can figure out a way to bring the old jack home. Or you can walk out of here right now... and go marry ms. Eve donovan.
[Door opens] Choice is yours.
Jack: It's nice of you to give me a choice after you chose to lock me in here and hold me hostage.
Jennifer: Desperate times, jack.
Jack: Yeah. Yeah.
Jennifer: I--I can stand here and I can tell you how much we meant to each other... but I can't make you love me. The choice has to be yours.
Jack: All those stories that you told me... you're right. Clearly we share something special. But as strong as that connection was... I just don't feel it anymore. I'm sorry.
Jennifer: [Gasps, sniffles]
Justin: Tripp. Did you pick up the marriage license?
Tripp: Uh, I did, yeah, and thank you again for agreeing to marry haley and me.
Justin: Happy to help.
Tripp: So there's no... conflict of interest?
Justin: Why would there be? As far as I know, you and haley are madly in love with each other.
Jj: I'm so grateful.
Haley: For what?
Jj: For your forgiveness.
Haley: I shouldn't have been so hard on you.
Jj: Oh, sure you should have been. Look--look, what I did, it--I screwed things up pretty badly.
Haley: You didn't mean for any of this to happen.
Jj: Haley... look, I--I want another chance with you.
Haley: I was so angry about what you told your father, but no matter how hard I tried to fight my feelings they never went away. I still care about you, jj. A lot.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Adrienne: Oh, goodness, where's the fire? Why are you dressed like that?
Jennifer: I tried to stop jack from marrying eve... but instead, I'm the one who got burned.
Claire: Look, eve, I--I get that today is your--your big wedding day, but it's also my boyfriend'S. Oh, my god, why--why, eve? Why is all this happening to me? I--I literally record tripp saying that his whole relationship with haley was fake and--and it just--it disappeared!
Eve: Okay, just calm down. Just because it disappeared doesn't mean that ice is not gonna figure out that the whole wedding is--is fake, okay? And she will still be deported in 30 days, right on schedule.
Claire: 30 days is plenty of time for them to fall in love with each other.
Claire: And where does that leave me?
Eve: Okay, claire, really, you have got to pull yourself together here, honey.
Claire: What the hell does that mean?
Eve: I--I'm just a little worried about you, okay? You know what happened with ciara up there on that mountain cabin, I--I just don't want you to do something that you might regret, okay?
Claire: Well, maybe I should. Because you're not really helping me right now. I mean, you--you told me that you would, but you're not.
Eve: I told you I would, and I am going to. I just can't do it today, okay?
Claire: Fine. Great. But you'd better not let me down.
Jj: Look, I--I know that you have marry tripp to stay in this country, but once--once everything's in the clear we can--we can see each other again, right?
Haley: Ice will be watching me like a hawk for the next 30 days, but after that, definitely.
[Knocking on door] Both: [Gasp]
Haley: That--that must be kayla. Tripp said she was gonna be here.
Haley: Uh, agent smith. Um, hi, hi. Um, what are you--what are you doing here?
Smith: Just making a routine check. But judging by your outfit, I'd venture this is your wedding day
Haley: Right. Right, it is.
Smith: How opportune considering how you and your fiancÚ couldn't stop gushing about how much you love each other. That's a ceremony I'd like to see for myself. You don't mind if I stay to observe, do you?
Haley: N-no. Of course not. Come--come in.
Smith: Wonderful. Oh, I didn't realize I wasn't the first guest to arrive.
[Door closes] You're jack deveraux's son, aren't you? Jj?
Jj: Yeah, uh, I am. Hello.
Smith: Tell me, where's your groom?
Haley: He--he'll be here any minute.
Smith: And in the meantime, you're spending time alone with a man who had a romantic interest in you? I know mr. Deveraux wouldn't approve. And I don't know that i understand either. Presenting downtherecare with cottonelle.
Ciara: [Sighs] It's not fair. You're the baby's blood relative. You should be taking care of him, not lani.
Ben: I think my blood's the problem. Lot of people in this town still think that I'm dangerous.
Ciara: [Sighs] Including most of the cops... which is why they interrogated us about that lighter.
Ben: How'd it go with you?
Ciara: He showed me claire's lighter.
Ciara: I told him the truth. That the lighter looked a lot like the one I saw you with at the cabin.
Ben: Okay. Okay, okay--no, don't beat yourself up about it, it's okay.
Ben: You told them the truth.
Ciara: I know.
Ben: You can't blame yourself for that.
Ciara: I know, I know. I just... I hate thinking about the cops going after you because of something I said.
Ben: It's okay.
Claire: Hey, little lovebirds. Ciara, did I just hear you say something about talking to the cops? Why? Were they questioning you?
Ciara: [Sighs] Yep. I, uh--I went to talk to the cops, and they were asking me about the lighter that jj found in your jewelry box, claire.
Ben: Yep, they believe your story, claire. That you found it after I left it at the loft.
Claire: It's not a story. How else would I have ended up with it?
Ben: I have no idea, claire, but all I know is that after i left that cabin I never saw that lighter again.
Claire: Really? So--so it was just one big coincidence that it showed up back at the loft?
Ciara: Must be. Because ben had nothing to do with setting that fire.
Claire: Then who did? I don't know it's just-- seems really strange to me, jordan saying she didn't set the fire, 'cause she admitted to kidnapping you and charlotte. Why not just admit to setting the fire, too?
Ciara: I don't know, claire. I have no idea. The woman is obviously not in her right mind. I saw that firsthand. But just because jordan didn't set the fire doesn't mean that ben did, okay? It could have just as easily been someone else.
Claire: Well, I do not really have time to talk about this right now, because in case you forgot, my boyfriend is marrying another woman today.
Ciara: Yeah, right, to help her stay in the country.
Claire: And that's supposed to make it easier for me? My god, ciara, could you pretend to care a little bit?
Ciara: [Scoffs] Don't worry, claire. You'll manage somehow. You always do.
Jj: There's nothing suspicious going on here, ma'am. Tripp and I are cousins, and he asked me to stand up for him. I'm his best man.
Smith: That doesn't explain why you're alone with the bride.
Jj: I just--I just came over here a little early because I--I wanted to tell haley that even though things didn't work out with us, I'm happy for--for her and my cousin.
Haley: And I--I told jj that even though I was upset that he told his father I was here illegally, I've forgiven him. After, all we're gonna be family now, right?
Jj: Mm-hmm, right.
Smith: I'm not buying it. And be warned, if I find any proof that your relationship with mr. Dalton is nothing more than a ruse to keep you in this country, I guarantee you will be on your way back to china immediately.
Jennifer: So that's what i told him. That I would do everything to help him remember what we meant to each other if he just didn't marry eve today.
Adrienne: But he didn't agree.
Jennifer: Why would he? Eve has him convinced that his sole purpose in life is to be a successful politician, so he really thinks that's what he wants.
Adrienne: Well, because that horrible, conniving woman has brainwashed him. Jennifer, we have to get him away from her--
Jennifer: Adrienne, I have tried. I have done everything in my power to make that happen. Nothing has worked.
Adrienne: So you're just gonna give up?
Jennifer: There's nothing more that I can do. He is determined to marry eve, and I can't stop it.
Eve: Uh, yes, this is eve donovan, and I was wondering if you happened to see my, um, fiancÚ exit the building? Uh, he would have been with a woman who looked like a dried up old twig.
[Door opens] Uh--uh, never mind. Thank you. Jack! Lord, where the hell have you been?
Jack: You wouldn't believe me if I told you.
Eve: Well, why don't you try me?
Jack: [Laughs] Jennifer made it seem like the hotel was on fire, and forced me to evacuate.
Eve: "Forced you"?
Jack: Did I happen to mention she was dressed as a fireman?
Jack: She locked me into a closet, started telling me all these old stories about our history. Thought it would jog my memory. Make me feel our love.
Eve: Okay, and--and did it?
Jack: Nothing. Nothing came back.
Eve: [Sighs] Well, you--you know...
[Stammers] I--I get that. I mean, what a lame stunt. I mean... I knew--god, I knew that bitch was up to something. Oh, eric tricked me into waiting at the brady pub for this russian informant.
Jack: Excuse me?
Eve: No, it doesn't make-- you know, it doesn't even matter. It was just to get me out of the way so she could-- so she could lock you up.
[Scoffs] That whole, you know, fireman thing, that's cray-cray even for jennifer.
Jack: Well, no, no. In her defense, it wasn't her idea. Apparently it was mine a long time ago. She got this from me. A long time ago she was getting married, and I guess I kidnapped her. I mean, yeah, I--I guess I must have been really crazy to fall in love with her like that, huh?
Eve: Wait... jack, you are, uh... you're not now. You're not in love with jennifer now, are you? Hey. You want me. Not jennifer, right?
Jack: I told you... despite jennifer's best efforts... I have no recollection of ever loving her. I told her the same thing, in addition to the fact that I am committed to my future with you. As mayor... and first lady of salem.
Eve: [Giggles] Jack, that's why we make such a great team. Oh, I just wish jennifer could get it through her pea brain.
Jack: Yeah, that-- I think that the--the--
Jack: The reason it was so upsetting is because apparently it was something we shared that was so... I don't know, intense? Although, everything that she told me--this whole love history--it was if not improbable, it was completely impossible. You know, in the early days of our romance, apparently i couldn't even tell her that I loved her. And yet somehow, for some reason, she wouldn't give up on me.
Eve: Well, they--you're right about it, because it was improbable and--and that's why it probably ended. But you and I, jack, oh, my gosh, we... are so compatible. We want the same things. That's why we are a force to be reckoned with. And that's why we are gonna show the people of salem what a true, true...
[Moans] Love story is all about as opposed to that--that fake news that tripp and haley are trying to sell. So come on. Mm. What do you say? Let's get married.
Jack: Yeah. I'm up for this.
Eve: All right. Both: [Moan softly]
Haley: I'm sure tripp will be here any minute, but, um, in the mean time can I make you some tea?
Smith: No thank you, I'd rather hear more about your love story.
Haley: Sure, what would you like to know?
Smith: I just have a few simple questions about mundane things. Like, what's tripp's favorite cereal?
Haley: [Laughs] Shredded wheat, of course.
Smith: Favorite movie?
Haley: "Silver linings playbook."
Smith: Favorite baseball team?
Haley: No, no, sox. Chicago white sox.
Tripp: Claire, claire, hey, hey, hey. What are you doing?
Claire: [Giggles] Well, I do live here, remember?
Tripp: Yeah, I--I know that, but haley and I are about to get married, so my supposed ex-girlfriend showing up isn't exactly the best look.
Claire: Ugh, can't I just pretend that I've--I've graciously accepted your new relationship? Tripp, I'm-- I'm very enlightened.
Tripp: Claire, claire, please, okay? You know how important it is to make sure this seems legit.
Claire: Tripp, I'm home! And 30 days are finally up, which means that ice is gonna let haley stay in the country and you I can finally get back together.
Tripp: Uh, actually, claire, that is not going to happen.
Claire: What? Why?
Tripp: Well, after spending this last month together, haley and I fell in love for real. So we've decided to stay married. Oh.
Claire: Is this wedding the only reason you don't want me here?
Tripp: What do you mean?
Claire: Are you falling for haley?
Ben: Nice and quiet on the ride over here.
Ciara: Mm-hmm. I was just thinking about what claire said. About jordan.
[Scoffs] It's almost like she wants you to go to jail and now she's just, what? Trying to stir up trouble between us?
Ben: Well, technically she really didn't stir up anything. Jj was the one who brought the lighter to the police.
Ciara: [Sighs] Right.
Ben: Hey. Look, we can debate whose fault this is all night long. The bottom line is--and the only point is--that I don't give a damn about jj or what--or what claire or the police think. The only person whose opinion that matters to me is yours. Which is why I have to ask you if you're starting to doubt me.
Eve: Look at all this, jack! Both: [Happy moan]
Adrienne: Uh, jack? Excuse me, I'm sorry. Hey. Hi, I just wanted to offer my heartiest congratulations on your joyous day.
Jack: Well, that's--that's very nice, but you didn't have to come all the way down here for that.
Adrienne: Well, actually, i have to confess, that's not my only reason. Look, I know you don't remember me, but you're still my brother. And because my brother loves you so much, I was just hoping that, well, you and I could get past our differences, you know? And I'd like to welcome you into the family. I--I was hoping--I would like to officiate your wedding.
Adrienne: Yeah. It would mean a lot to me.
Eve: Well, we already--we already have a judge on the way.
Adrienne: Would you--wouldn't you rather be married by someone who means something to you both?
Jack: Are you even qualified to officiate?
Adrienne: As a matter of fact, I did get ordained a while back for an article I was writing. I guess business and love actually do mix sometimes, you know?
Jack: It looks legit.
Adrienne: Yeah, well, it is, and honestly, I would like nothing more than to be a part of your special day.
Jack: Well, you know, uh, eve, we are gonna have a lot of press at this wedding. Wouldn't look too bad for them to see my sister blessing our union, would it?
Eve: Mm, I--I guess not. I'll just--I'll call the judge and I'll cancel.
Adrienne: Thank you.
Adrienne: Thank you. It will be an honor.
Smith: [Sighs] Your groom isn't very punctual, is he?
Haley: No. Uh, but that's--that's one of the things I love about him. In fact, let me--let me show you something. Uh, this symbol... it means double happiness, and it's used in chinese culture to--to celebrate a marriage. The uniting of two souls, and... that's how I feel about tripp. He makes me feel whole.
Smith: That's a lovely sentiment, but unfortunately it's not legally binding. So either get this show on the road or I'm leaving.
Jj: Uh, why don't I make a few calls? See what the hold-up is.
Tripp: Claire, we have been over and over this, okay? You are my girlfriend. I am your boyfriend. But haley's entire future is at stake here, so we have to really sell our marriage or she will lose everything she fought so hard for.
Claire: I know, I know, i know, I just--come on, it's so hard being away from you through this whole charade. I mean, you've gotta understand, tripp, it's like--it's like torture for me.
Tripp: I know, I know, and i will make it up to you. I promise.
Claire: Yeah? Well, I already miss you. You gonna miss me?
Tripp: You know I will.
Claire: Okay, then prove it. Kiss me.
Ciara: You told me you didn't set the fire, ben weston, and I believe you, okay? I know that you will never hurt me.
Ben: Everybody in this town thinks that I'm bad for you, but you're still here with me.
Ciara: Well... that's because they haven't seen what I've seen. The man who rescued me from the side of the road. Who nursed me back to health, who took such good care of me.
[Sighs] The way you treat me, ben...
[Laughs] It's almost like I'm something special. Like I'm precious.
Ben: You are.
Ciara: Yeah, well, no one's ever done that for me before. No one's ever treated me like that, and if...
[Sighs] Someone who can treat me like that could not possibly be dangerous. I know that. I know that deep, deep down in my soul, and no one is ever, ever going to change my mind.
Ben: Thank you.
Ben: It just means a lot to hear you say that again.
Ciara: Mm. Then why are you so sad?
Ben: Because... I know what I have to lose. These police think that that lighter's mine. I will go to prison... and I'm gonna lose you. Forever.
Ciara: You are not going to lose me... because we are gonna find a way to prove you did not set that fire.
Jj: What the hell was that?
Claire: What, jj, I--I can't say goodbye to my boyfriend before he marries another woman?
Jj: Not if you want that marriage to off without a hitch.
Tripp: Jj, what's--what's the problem?
Jj: The problem is we have a surprise wedding guest. Agent smith.
Tripp: Wait, what?
Claire: Wait, ice is here?
Jj: Yeah, and she's been grilling haley about your relationship while we're waiting for you to show up.
Jj: Look, you know what, don't worry. I think haley's got it under control. But if agent smith opened that door instead of me?
Tripp: I'm--I'm sorry, but--
Claire: It's okay, it's okay. Don't worry, I'm fine.
Jj: Hey, look what I found!
Claire: Congratulations. I guess.
Eve: What do you think you are doing?
Jack: You show me yours, I show you mine.
Eve: Stop it! Not until after the wedding, bub.
Jennifer: Well, looks like the happy couple made it to the square on time.
Eve: Yeah, that's all because your little lame kidnapping plan failed. No, nothing is gonna stop me from marrying jack. Even adrienne agreed to officiate.
Jennifer: What is she talking about?
Adrienne: Jack's my brother. I feel it's only right to support him.
Eve: Yeah, so there you go. Excuse us, we are going to greet our guests.
Jennifer: You're kidding, right? You're not really going to marry them?
Adrienne: Relax. I know what I'm doing.
Ciara: But now the real question is... how did that lighter end up in the loft?
Ben: [Sighs] The answer is, I have no idea.
Ciara: I mean, is it possible that jordan planted it? I mean, she planted my cellphone and charlotte's baby blanket to make it look like you were the one who kidnapped us.
Ben: Yeah, except she did that at the motel. I wasn't even living at the loft then.
Ciara: Oh, right. I forgot. I guess I'm just not thinking clearly right now.
Ben: It's getting late.
Ciara: Yeah, it is getting late. I should probably go home.
[Laughs] Except for, there's this wedding at the loft that I really do not want to attend right now.
Ben: Yeah, it's probably not so much fun watching your ex-boyfriend get married to somebody else.
Ciara: Wait. That's why you think I don't want to go?
Ciara: Ben. You are--no. You are not actually jealous of tripp, are you? No, come on, we've already--both of us have moved on and not to mention the fact that this wedding is completely, completely fake. I mean, he's with claire now.
Ben: I know that. Except he is stepping up to help out haley chen, and I respect that.
Ben: It's risky, but i respect that.
Ciara: I know. Oh, my gosh, eve and jack are doing literally everything they can to prove that tripp and haley are just gaming the system so that she can stay in the country, including getting married on the exact same day. I mean, can you believe that?
Ben: That is a little extreme.
Ciara: "A little"? Try very extreme. Mega. This is...
[Scoffs] What kind of a person uses their wedding day as a campaign stunt?
Eve: Thank you!
Jack: On behalf of myself and eve, my bride-to-be...
Jack: I wanna thank you for sharing in our special day. And we have a wonderful surprise for you.
Jack: My sister adrienne kiriakis will be performing the ceremony, and we're so happy that she could share in our love and this celebration. You know, I never expected to fall in love with my campaign manager.
Eve: He did.
Jack: Yes. You know, one thing I've learned is that some of the best things that happen in this life are the things that you least expect.
Right, that's right!
Jack: And no matter how crazy a love story may seem, what matters is that it'S... true.
Eve: Yes. And--and you know what? Ours is. Unlike that marriage taking place across town, where an illegal immigrant...
Eve: No! Is marrying a man she doesn't love simply to get her green card! Come on! No way! No way.
Jack: It's a disgrace.
Jack: It's a disgrace, and yet your current mayor abe carver--abe carver refused to say a single word against it, which can only mean one thing!
Jack: He supports that kind of a fraud!
Eve: Jack! Jack!
Jack: He supports it! If you want a mayor--if you want a mayor who follows the laws of this land, who wants to protect you, protect your rights, you will stick with me. You will vote for me, jack deveraux!
Jack: For mayor! Jack deveraux!
Eve: Jack! Jack! Jack!
Jennifer: I thought this was a wedding, not a campaign rally.
Eve: Oh, well, you are so correct, miss horton. Let's get hitched, shall we?
[Cheers and applause]
Eve: Thank you!
Justin: Okay, I think the, uh, happy couple is about ready. Shall we get started? We are gathered here to join trip and haley in marriage. Uh, I believe the two of you have written your own vows.
Tripp: Haley, um... I know we haven't been together that long, and in a perfect world we might have even moved a little more slowly, but... in a perfect world we would have never had to worry about you being sent back to china forever. And now, thank god, uh, all we have to do is worry about how we are going to spend the rest of our lives. And I believe with all my heart that we belong together.
Tripp: I am your boyfriend, but haley's entire future is at stake here. So we have to really sell our marriage or she may lose everything she fought so hard for.
Claire: Perfect. Now I've got all the ammo I need.
Ciara: You know, I don't have to spend tonight at the loft. I could just stay at my mom'S.
Ben: Yeah, you could. Except rafe might be using your room now for the baby.
Ciara: Mm, good point. Okay, well, I could sleep on jennifer's pull-out if... well, assuming grandma julie doesn't lecture me about a million things first.
Ben: Or... you could just snd the night here.
Justin: Haley? It's your turn to speak.
Haley: I never believed in love at first sight, but... you made me a believer, tripp. And I can't wait for us to start our lives together.
Justin: Jj, the rings.
Jj: Right. Of course.
Justin: Haley, repeat after me: With this ring, I thee wed.
Haley: With this ring, I thee wed.
Justin: It's your turn, tripp. With this ring, I thee wed.
Tripp: With this ring, I thee wed.
Justin: Then with the power vested in me as a universal minister, I now pronounce you--
Adrienne: We are gathered here today to join jack and eve--you can't kiss yet.
[Both laughing] In marriage. And since eve is responsible for bringing jack back into our lives, it only seems fair that eve speak first.
Jack: She reminded me that I still have a future! I'm building a new life for myself!
Jennifer: That's okay, you can build a life! But you don't have to build it with her! You don't have to be married to her to be part of this dumb election, jack!
Jack: This "dumb election" is all that I have!
Jennifer: No, you have me! I still love you!
Eve: I have waited my whole life to love a man as strong... and as ambitious as you, jack deveraux. And I know together we can accomplish some amazing things, so... thank you. Thank you for making all my dreams come true.
[Camera shutter snaps]
Adrienne: Jack? It's your turn.
Jack: [Soft laugh]
[Camera shutter snaps] Uh, eve... I was lost... and you found me. You helped me find meaning in my world.
[Camera shutter snaps] You...
Eve: Jack, hey.
[Laughs] Jack, is--is something wrong?
Jack: [Sighs] I'm sorry... I can't do this.
[Camera shutters snapping]
