Lani: [Laughs]

[Stirring music]

Abe: Oh, hey.

Eli: Hey.

Abe: Well, what a sight on the first day of the New Year-- seeing my daughter and son-in-law holding their precious twin babies.

Lani: Hi, Daddy.

Abe: So, did my grandchildren keep you awake last night?

Eli: Yeah, they-- yeah, they did. The nurse came by, and she offered to take them to the nursery to do their 2:00 A.M. feeding, but--

Lani: But we were just too excited so we couldn't let them out of our sights.

Eli: Yes, I'm too happy to feel tired.

Lani: [Laughs] Do you want to hold them?

Abe: I would love to. However, I would rather not be cooing-- ooh, coochy-coo, baby little ones...

[Cooing indistinctly] [Eli and Lani laugh] into their cute little faces. So tell me that you have settled on the names for these children.

Jack: Have I told you how beautiful you look first thing in the morning?

Jennifer: Oh, only every morning we've ever woken up together.

Jack: Seeing you there this morning makes me feel better than I have been a long, long time.

Julie: Well, what do you know. Sounds like somebody here enjoyed a sleepover.

Tony: [Laughs]

Anna: Oh, Happy New Year, my darling.

Tony: Oh, Happy New Year to you too, my darling.

Kate: Ooh.

Anna: Happy New Year, Kate.

Kate: Yes, I almost forgot. What year is it?

Tony: Why? We have too many cocktails last night, did we?

Kate: No, we did not.

Anna: Well, who are you looking for? Wouldn't happen to be young Jake, would it?

[Tense music]

Jake: You gave me this tie because you said that I am an up-and-comer at DiMera and... I should dress the part. But really... you don't like my clothes. You're embarrassed. I embarrass you.

Kate: I never said that.

Jake: Then say it. I knew it.

Kate: Jake--

Jake: No, no, no, no, no. No! No. Don't, Kate. I get it. All right, it's okay for you to have a secret fling with a lower-class grease monkey but God forbid-- God forbid anybody find out about it. I hope you enjoyed that kiss at midnight, because that was our last.

[Phone beeps]

[Line trilling]

[Dramatic music]

Gwen: Sorry Abigail. Your husband is sleeping at the moment. I must've really tired him out last night.

Abigail: Hey. It's just me again. Look, I know you're really angry, but you didn't come home last night, which is not something you've ever really done, and I'm really, really starting to get worried about you, so if you could call me, I would really appreciate it. I love you.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "Days of Our Lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Jennifer: Yes, I asked Jack to stay the night last night.

Jack: And I said that nothing would make me happier.

Julie: Oh, your beautiful wonderful. Well, I am so happy. I am thrilled. I am relieved.


Jack: Yes.

Julie: Oh, I just want to hug you so badly, but I fear that I'm running a bit late this morning.

Jennifer: For what? It's New Year's Day. It's a holiday.

Jack: Yeah, where are you off to?

Julie: What better way to start the new year then going to the hospital to cuddle my two new great-grandbabies?

Jack: Oh!

Julie: Have a great day, sweetheart.

Jack: Yes.

Jennifer: You too. How 'bout it?

Jack: How 'bout it.

Jennifer: Babies.

Kate: Why on earth would I be looking for Jake?

Anna: Uh, well, maybe because you are doing the nasty with him?

Kate: The what?

Anna: Oh, come on. Abigail told us all about you and your mechanic. But, hey, what's wrong with having a younger man in your life? Especially-- especially one that knows how to keep the old engine running.

Kate: Well, Anna, I know this must be very amusing for you, but I wouldn't be acting so superior. The woman who dragged around an urn of ashes for years.

Anna: I was in mourning.

Kate: Well, you're not anymore, okay? So the two of you should enjoy your New Year together and stay the hell out of my business.

Tony: Man. Wow. Hoo. I think we touched a nerve, didn't we?

Anna: Yes, we did. Let's have more mimosa.

[Both chuckle] Mmm.

[Knock on door]

Jake: Go away. [Loud knock on door] You're just not gonna go away. The hell do you want? Oh. Abigail, I'm sorry. I... what's going on?

Abigail: Chad just didn't come home last night, and I just keep calling him and I'm sending him messages. He's not getting back to me and now the kids are asking where he's at. I don't know what to tell them and this is just-- I don't know what.

Jake: Oh, man. Wait, if Chad didn't come home last night, you didn't have a chance to tell him that I'm sleeping with Kate and not you.

Abigail: No. That's why this is so bad. Wherever he is, he still thinks you and I are having an affair.

Gwen: Hi. How are you feeling?

Chad: What happened?

Gwen: You don't remember?

Chad: I remember--uh... polishing off the champagne.

Gwen: Is this what you want? Is this what you really want? What if Abigail finds out?

Chad: [Shushes] Please do not say her name. Don't say her name. Just make me forget. Please. Please, just make me forget. Did we... did you and I?

Gwen: Yeah, we did.

Chad: Agh.

Lani: Dad, it's not that we haven't thought about names. Look. Here.

Abe: Are there... are there any names that aren't on this list?

Eli: Yes. Of course. We both have veto power.

Abe: Veto power?

Eli: I automatically vetoed any names that would prevent one of the babies from becoming a supreme court justice.

Abe: And what kind of name would do that?

Eli: Bambi. Bubba.


Lani: Not Bubba.

Eli: Flower names.

Abe: What's wrong with flower names?

Lani: Yeah.

Eli: Justice Pansy Grant. Really? Can you see that?

Lani: I said, "look, as much as we love sports, no naming the kids after sports figures."

Abe: Well, doesn't Mookie Betts Grant or Megan Rapinoe Grant have a nice ring to it?

Eli: Yes.

Lani: I love them both, but, Dad, I want our babies to have their own names.

Abe: All right, enough with the jokes. City hall is going to want a birth certificate for these kids before you leave the hospital. Time to give names to these little angels.

Eli: Yeah. We got to get serious. Now.

Lani: Yeah.

Chad: I can't believe I did this.

Gwen: I know. I know. Me neither. I woke up this morning, and I couldn't-- couldn't even look at myself in the mirror. I just can't believe that I... with you, and... Abigail's not just my boss, she's my friend.

Chad: Well, she's my wife. And we worked so hard to put our life back together after she got out of the hospital, and then I went and I got drunk--why...

Gwen: I know you feel guilty. I do too. I feel the same. But Chad, last night didn't just happen. You know? I had to tell you that Jake had booked this room for him and Abigail. And we came up here because you were going to confront her. Do you remember that?

Chad: Yeah, I remember.

Gwen: But they never showed up so... maybe they changed their plans.

Chad: And they wasted a romantic room and...champagne. But why in the hell did I have to drink it all? Why did... if I wasn't drunk, then...

Gwen: You know, I really hate to say this, I do, but... Chad, I think that perhaps your marriage doesn't mean as much to Abigail as it does to you. You never would have even looked at me if Abigail hadn't betrayed you first.

Abigail: And you know I-- I know that Chad is going to be back eventually and I'm going to be able to tell him that he's wrong about you and me, which, you know, I don't know what that means about you and Kate.

Jake: Pretty sure there's not a me and Kate anymore.

Abigail: Oh.

Jake: Yeah.

Abigail: Is it over?

Jake: Well, I thought Chad was the reason she wanted to keep us a secret. Turns out, she's ashamed of being with me.

[Laughs sarcastically]
Abe: "Eustis."

Eli: Well, at least we know there won't be six of them in his class.

Abe: Can't argue with that.

Lani: I think your daughter is starting to wake up.

Eli: Yeah. Okay.

Lani: Hey, Dad, we're gonna have to feed them soon.

Abe: Oh. I see. You know, why don't I-- why don't I go get my own breakfast. There you go. And... I'll leave you to see after family.

Lani: Do you mind?

Abe: No.

Julie: Happy New Year.

Eli: Hi.

Julie: I couldn't wait another minute to come in and cuddle my two great-grandbabies.

Lani: Well, they might not be so cuddly soon.

Abe: I have just been informed that they are going to start asking for breakfast.

Julie: Oh. Well, I don't hear a peep out of them now.

Abe: Well, you know what? I'm going to go get my own breakfast, so why don't you allow me to buy you yours?

Julie: Oh, no, no.

Abe: No, no. You know, I insist. I insist. And it's all on me.

Julie: Well, we'll be back.

Anna: I am right about this, Tony. That Gwen did her homework. She read up on all of Abigail's problems and then decided to make herself indispensable to the DiMera family.

Tony: Well, maybe she saw a family that needed her.

Anna: Or maybe she saw a family with boatloads of money. This isn't good, Tony.

Jack: What isn't good?

Anna: Um... this mimosa. Tony--Tony, knows that I prefer blood oranges.

Jack: What do mimosas have to do with families with boatloads of money?

Anna: Did I say that?

Jack: Yes, you did. What did you mean?

Anna: Have a seat, Jack.

Chad: I can't believe this. I can't believe that Abby and I are in this much of a mess and I just made things so much worse.

Gwen: You know, I really don't want to make excuses for what I did last night, but I have to admit that I was very upset when I heard about Jake and Abigail.

Chad: I don't know what's going on with her. But I know that she's had an awful time. But I just thought that I would be the one seeing her through that. Why would she turn to Jake?

Gwen: I don't know. Why do they want to hurt us?

Abigail: Do you really think that Kate is embarrassed to be seen with you?

Jake: I don't think it. I know it. Look, Kate's got everybody fooled that she is cool and sophisticated. She probably thought I was going to screw that up.

Abigail: Oh, she hurt you.

Jake: I'm fine.

Abigail: I'm sorry.

Jake: It's fine. Look, I... I always looked forward to being with her. Kate got a cheap thrill out of slumming. Lucky for her, I was available.

Kate: Jennifer. Happy New Year.

Jennifer: Happy New Year. Kate? Um, do you have a minute?

Eli: Let me ask you something. Are we terrible for lying to our kids' doting grandpa and great grandma just to get them out of this room?

Lani: What bothers me is that I lied and said the kids were hungry when I knew I just fed them an hour ago. But we do have to get serious and name these babies. I just couldn't do it with dad and Julie in the room.

Eli: Have you narrowed down your part of the list yet?

Lani: No. I just, I don't-- I don't have any favorites.

Eli: All right. Well, how about this? How about we take this and toss it?

Lani: Back to square one.

Eli: Back to square one. Let's just keep it simple. We don't need to find the perfect name. Once they turn 13, they're going to want to change them anyway.

Lani: Well then, how about we pick names that they don't want to change? Names that they will be proud of?

Eli: That's a good idea.

Lani: How about we name them after people that they will always look up to?

Eli: I like it. John Lewis Grant.

Lani: Rosa Parks Grant.

Eli: Thurgood Marshall.

Lani: Shirley Chisholm.

[Both chuckle]

Eli: Yeah. Those are all great names, but heroes...

Lani: Yeah.

Eli: They are some heavy-duty first names.

Lani: Yes, but I think I know how to deal with that and make sure that they are named after people that they will always look up to.

Jack: So you're telling me that Gwen has this whole dossier on me and my whole family?

Anna: Anything that has been in print, anywhere. I'm telling you, it's obvious. That nanny has some sort of an agenda.

Jack: Do you agree?

Tony: Hmm? Oh, I'm staying out of this.

Anna: Okay, it's obvious to me. Tony thinks I'm overreacting.

Tony: Well, yes, I do.

Anna: Well, don't tell me you agree with him. Oh, you do, don't you? You think I'm making too much of this.

Jack: Actually, I think you may be right.

Chad: I--I have to get out of here. I need to... I need to tell Abby that I know about her and Jake and she reserved this room and... and got the champagne.

Gwen: Are you going to tell her about us? Because I think you should.

Chad: I don't know. I... this has all been festering for a while. I just need to leave and get everything out in the open.

Abigail: Well... [Scoffs] I don't really like hearing you put yourself down. I mean, if Kate wants to treat you like some boy toy that doesn't have any feelings, I quite frankly find it insulting and think it's really great that you're not putting up with it.

Jake: Well, thanks. Really. I mean, Kate and I were never gonna be anything long term anyway. She was itchy; I was there. That was all it ever was.

Abigail: Well, I get the feeling she was more than that for you.

Kate: What is it, Jennifer? I am sure I haven't made any more reservations at the Salem Inn.

Jennifer: Actually, I... I wanted to apologize.

Kate: You're joking.

Jennifer: No, I overheard you the other day, and I just assumed that you were still sleeping with Jack. And I had no right to, um, take you to task about that.

Kate: So, Jack convinced you that he and I weren't running around having secret rendezvous.

Jennifer: No, Jack didn't have to convince me of anything. I confirmed it with the clerk at the Salem Inn.

Kate: Yeah, I heard about that.

Jennifer: Right. Anyway, you should know that I know that you're having a relationship with Jake DiMera. And I want you to know that I'm not going to tell anybody about it.

Kate: Well, Jennifer, you don't have to worry about that. Because I'm pretty sure that Jake and I are over.

Abigail: So it didn't bother you that Kate wanted to keep the two of you a secret?

Jake: Not at first. But the more time went on, the more I started believing maybe there could be something real between us.

Abigail: Mm-hmm. And you wanted to know where was going, which obviously makes sense.

Jake: Yeah, well, not anymore. I think it's pretty obvious that she doesn't want it going anywhere.

Chad: I got to get going.

Gwen: You don't want a coffee, cup of tea or something?

Chad: No, I'll grab it on my way home. I've a bunch of missed calls from Abby. Why didn't I hear my phone ring?

Gwen: Well, we did watch the ball drop in times square last night. That was pretty loud. Or... maybe you put your phone on vibrate?

Chad: Yeah, it was. I don't member doing that.

Gwen: You also don't remember us sleeping together last night.

Chad: No.

[Phone beeps]

Abigail: Hey, Chad. It's just me again. You know, I've been trying to reach you all night. I'm not really sure where you are, but, um, Happy New Year. Hey, it's just me again. Look, I know you're really angry but you didn't come home last night, which is not something you've ever really done and I'm really, really starting to get worried about you. So if you could just call me, I would really appreciate it. I love you.

Chad: She sounds so scared.

Gwen: Maybe she knows that you're onto her.

Chad: She sounded really worried about me.

Gwen: Come on. Are you surprised? Somebody who is hiding who she really is from somebody as smart as you, Chad... she must be very good actress.

Anna: You think I'm right?

Jack: Well, if you had told me this yesterday, I think I actually would have agreed with Tony. But Jennifer and I, we had a chance to talk things out last night.

Anna: Wait, wait, wait. You're back with Jennifer?

Jack: Oh, yes. Yes.

Anna: Oh, wonderful.

Jack: Yes, yes, it is. It is. And in our talking things out, we both realized that we had both been given marital advice from none other than Gwen.

Anna: But who is she to give you two advice about your marriage?

Jack: It was more than that. Gwen swore to me that she told Jennifer to forgive me. But really what she told Jennifer to do was never forgive me. And now, you're telling me that she has all of this old information in this file of hers?

Anna: Yes. You see, Tony?

Tony: This is so disconcerting.

Jack: Well, you know, there's always that outside chance that maybe Gwen was telling us what she thought we both wanted to hear.

Anna: Or maybe she's a two-faced conniving little tramp. Let's go.

Jack: Go? Well, wait. Go? Go where?

Anna: Well, to find the little beast and run her out of town.

Tony: Anna, this is... this is their problem. Jennifer and Jack. Can we just allow them to handle this?

Anna: But darling, we are family.

Tony: Yeah, but you're a DiMera now, and... this is a matter for the Deveraux family.

Jack: Actually, yes. It kind of is, thank you. Thank you, Tony, but... I thank you, Anna, for telling me what you did.

Anna: Well, okay. Okay. But you know where to find me if you need any help.

Jack: Yes. This is the sound of an asthma attack...

Julie: Oh, oh, it looks like we timed it perfectly.

Abe: Hey.

Julia: Hi, hi.

Abe: Hey, can I take one of those babies off your hands?

Lani: Yes.

Abe: All right. Oh, look at this. Look at this.

Lani: Say hello to your grandpa.

Abe: [Chuckles] Aww. Well, our families make beautiful babies.

Julie: Indeed. May I hold my great-granddaughter?

Lani: Yes.

Julie: Thank you, darling. Oh, oh.

Abe: Well, hello, little one.

Eli: His name is Carver.

Abe: Carver?

Eli: Yeah.

Abe: Carver. I like it.

Eli: Carver Malcolm.

Abe: I couldn't be prouder of that name.

Lani: And your great-granddaughter's name is Julia.

Julie: But that's my given name.

Eli: Yes. We know, Grandma. That's why we named her that.

Julie: Oh, Abraham. We are blessed.

Abe: We are, indeed.

Lani: Her full name is Julia Jarriet.

Abe: Oh, Julia II.

Eli: Well, there is only one Julie in Salem. So, we figured we'd call her Jules.

Julie: Jules. Jules, my darling. Grandma is going to teach you everything she knows. Yes. Yes.

Abe: Well, you know... this is quite a surprise.

Lani: Well, we realized that we couldn't settle on names because what we really wanted was to name our babies after people they could look up to for the rest of their lives.

Eli: And we couldn't think of anyone better than the two of you.


Kate: So, when Jake and I fell into whatever it is that we have or had, I made it clear that it was very important to me that Chad not find out. Because I had worked so hard to rebuild that relationship with him. Chad does not like Jake. He doesn't trust Jake, and... Jake seemed to be okay with that situation until it started looking inevitable that Chad was going to find out, no matter what we did.

Jennifer: Because Abigail and I found out that you had booked a room at the Salem Inn for the two of you.

Kate: That's right. That's right, and in Jake's mind it was the perfect opportunity to go public. Because he wanted the world to know about us. He actually told me that if Chad really cared about me, than he should be happy for me no matter who I was happy with.

Jennifer: But you felt differently?

Kate: Yes. Yes, because it's complicated, you know? It's complicated. And I tried to explain that to him, but he doesn't-- he didn't understand, and he became furious with me and stormed out of the restaurant.

Jennifer: Oh. Well.

Kate: Well what?

Jennifer: You did just say that Chad was going to find out anyway. So, no matter what his reaction, there would be no point in keeping your relationship a secret anymore. Unless there's some other reason you don't want people to find out about you and Jake?

Jake: Look. You got better things to do than stand here and listen to my problems. Check your phone. I know you want to.

Abigail: Oh, it's on. Trust me, there's nothing. Unfortunately. Chad probably just crashed somewhere.

Jake: Wow, without letting you know first? Ooh, I'd be mad as hell.

Abigail: Ooh, I am mad. I'm angry. But I love him. And if he would just come home, I could clear the whole thing up, you know? He would know I wasn't unfaithful and that our marriage was as good as it's ever been.

Chad: Yeah, you don't have to worry about anything clouding my judgment. Abby and I, we need to have this out. Do you need a ride back to the house?

Gwen: No. No, you need to do that on your own. And I... I need time to clear my head.

Chad: Um... about last night... what happened-- um... look, I'm sorry. I was loaded. I know that's not an excuse. But if I had been sober... I just--I took advantage of the situation and you. And, um, you know, it makes me, uh... it makes me sick.

Gwen: I'm not a kid, Chad. I knew what I was doing. We were both hurt by Jake and Abigail. And we found a way to make ourselves feel better.

Chad: Yeah, for a little while anyway.

Gwen: I'm just so sorry you're going through this.


Eli: This is what we fill out to get the birth certificates. Once we fill in the names, there's no going back.

Lani: I'm fine with that.

Eli: You ready to get Jules and Carver and go home?

Lani: I am so ready. The four of us...

Eli: Yes.

Lani: Are starting a wonderful new life together.

Julie: Really, they are the most beautiful babies in the nursery.

Abe: [Laughs] Spoken without bias.

Julie: Absolutely.

Abe: Oh, look at little Carver. Look at him. He's just laying back. He's taking it all in.

Julie: Yes, and the nurse can't stop hovering around little Jules.


Abe: Oh, you know... do you like that name? Jules.

Julie: Actually, I love it. For a minute there I was afraid it was going to be big Julie, little Julie. And believe me, I didn't want to be big Julie.

Abe: Well. [Laughs] Strong names... to back them up.

Julie: Couldn't agree more.

Abe: Shall we?

Julie: Shall we!

Abe: Please.

Julie: I'm gonna go off and buy them lots of onesies. What are you gonna do next?


Abe: For the babies.

Julie: Well, yes. Oh, sure. For both of them.

[Unsettling music]

Kate: All my life I have wanted to be as powerful as Victor and Stefano, but as a woman, I need to tread carefully. Jake doesn't understand that. But then again, why should he? He was born a DiMera.

Jennifer: He doesn't act like a DiMera.

Kate: No, most definitely not. But he has decided that I don't want to admit that I am sleeping with the guy who takes care of my car. He thinks I'm embarrassed by him.

Jennifer: Are you?

Jack: You know all about us. Why?

Jake: Are you gonna be able to forgive you Chad for not believing in you?

Abigail: We'll work through it. You know, we got kids to think of and whatnot. Anyway, I can't just stand around here anymore. I got to go look for him or something.

Jake: Want me to go with you?

Abigail: No, no, I'm going to do it on my own. Thanks.

Jake: Well, if you need backup, you let me know.

Abigail: Oh, I know. I can count on you.
