Eli: Thanks, mom. Okay, you think you got everything that you need, father?
Eli: All right. I think we're ready.
[Lani laughs] I'm nervous.
Lani: Yeah, it's a big day for our family.
Bernard: And it's my honor to be here. I've never baptized twins before, so this is twice as special.
Lani: Excuse me. Aunt paulina.
Paulina: What is it, darling?
Lani: I just want you to know how touched I was for what you said to julie before and to all of us, and I am sorry for not telling you right away when the misunderstanding happened that you aren't meant to be joseph's godmother.
Paulina: Oh, honey, lani, it's not your fault. No, this is all on me. I was so presumptuous, you know, always the star of my own movies, huh?
Lani: Well, you are a star in my life for sure. And you're always going to be an important part of the twins lives.
Paulina: You can count on that. You know, we're good, we're good, everything's all right, I promise. But, um, girl, didn't I always teach you to not be afraid to speak the truth to power, huh?
Lani: Every chance you got.
Paulina: Well, I hope those godparents that you chose, that they teach those little ones just that, okay?
Lani: I'm sure they will. I think we're about to start.
Paulina: Oh, no, go, go, go, go. Aww.
[Sighs] Oh. Anybody ever tell you a silver fox?
Doug: Only my wife.
Paulina: Ohh. Well, ms. Julie is a lucky, lucky woman. I hope you don't mind if I ask your age.
Doug: I don't mind at all. 95 years young and counting.
Paulina: Stop it. Oh, no, no, no. Well, whoo! Well, whatever you're doing, and whatever she's doing, you just keep right on that.
Bernard: May I have everyone's attention, please? We're ready to begin.
Tripp: Charlie, open the damn door now.
Ciara: I thought I told you to stay away from me. Get out of here right now or i swear, I swear to god I'm going to start screaming--
Ben: Go for it! I'm not going anywhere until you hear what I have to say.
Ciara: And why would I do that? You don't know me, and I sure as hell don't know you at all.
Ben: Wrong again, ciara. You do know me a lot better than you think.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Claire: I know, mom, I want ciara to get her memory back too so--just so things can go back to the way they were.
Chanel: Can I ask you something?
Claire: Can't you see that I'm on the phone?
Chanel: It's an emergency.
Claire: Mom, I'm so sorry. I've got to go. Okay, what's the problem?
Chanel: Where's the salem inn?
Claire: That is the emergency?
Chanel: Yes. Oh, could that be any smaller?
Claire: Hey, are you okay?
Chanel: No, I'm most definitely not okay.
Claire: Well, that makes the two of us.
Ciara: The only thing I know about you is that you're the necktie killer.
Ben: You know, a lot more than that.
Ciara: That's it. I'm calling security.
Ben: Ciara, wait.
Ciara: Why? So you can strangle me?
Ben: First of all, I would never, ever hurt you. I love you.
Ciara: See, that is exactly what claire said too, that you love me. But I'm not surprised because she's just as deranged as you are. But you? You're seriously suggesting that I somehow love you back? I mean, that is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my entire life. When my grandfather was here earlier, I asked him what the hell this is all about, and he didn't know what to say. He was just confused. And he acted all weird,
Ben: Probably because they didn't know how to tell you.
Ciara: Tell me what? That you have some kind of sick obsession with me? I mean, come on!
Ben: Ciara, this is not an obsession. This is the greatest love that you and I have ever known.
Ciara: No, it's not. I could never love a psychopath like you.
Ben: You love me enough to marry me.
Bernard: Godparents, I will now ask each of you, do you promise to support eli and lani in their duties as parents and to be there for their children if they themselves cannot be? Valerie, let's start with you.
Valerie: Well, I just know that wherever I am, if carver needs me, I will be there. I mean, now that that carver and jules are in this world, I have a strong feeling I'll be spending a lot more of my time in salem.
Abe: My, uh, my children are the great joy of my life. My sons, theo, brandon. My beautiful daughter, lani. I'm grateful and honored to be godfather to my grandson, carver.
Bernard: Are you prepared to be julia's godfather,
Theo: I'll have the best role model out there. I don't know if I'll surpass my dad, but, um, I vow my best to try.
Bernard: And last but definitely not least, julie.
Julie: Father, it was a few years ago in this very church that we all gathered to say goodbye to my son david. And that was the first time I set eyes on eli-- on eli. A short time later I found out he was my grandson, and I was thrilled. Such a beautiful man. My only regret is that I didn't meet him sooner. I would have showered him with love. The way, father, I promise to shower that exquisite daughter of his.
[Exhales] I will tell her stories, I will teach her songs, wonderful parts of history, and probably spoil her rotten, and I depend on all of you to stop me if I start to go overboard.
Paulina: Don't you worry. I will.
[Laughter] Ah, yes.
Chanel: Sorry about before, I didn't mean to interrupt your cal
Chanel: Sorry about before, I didn't mean to interrupt your call.
Claire: It's fine.
Chanel: No, it was rude, and had I not been such a hot mess, I would have gave you huge props on what you're wearing. Girl, the outfit? Fire.
Chanel: But the sad expression on your face doesn't really go with the great outfit, you know? Honey, you look like you lost your best friend.
Claire: I, uh, I did.
Chanel: Oh, my god. I'm so sorry.
Claire: She's not dead. Well, we thought she was for a while--you know what, it's a long story.
Chanel: Oh, I have time. Mind if I sit?
Chanel: I'm waiting for someone to get back into the inn which cannot be more annoying because I've been driving for two days straight. What I really need is a king-sized bed, a whirlpool bath and a room service menu.
Claire: Well, you know, the salem inn has a restaurant.
Chanel: Girlfriend, no. The only thing worse than eating alone is drinking alone. And I'm dying for some champagne. Care to join me?
Claire: I mean, it's kind of early.
Chanel: That's why they invented mimosas. Come on, we'll order a bottle of the best champagne they have.
Claire: That sounds like it's going to be way out of my price range.
Chanel: No worries. It's on me.
Chanel: Yes, so are you in?
Claire: I guess so. I mean, as you noticed, I'm having kind of crap day,
Chanel: I've had two in a row and it's time to end the streak.
Ciara: Liar. You're such a liar! I would never marry someone like you.
Ben: You did, and it was beautiful. Everybody we loved was there and rafe walked you down the aisle.
Ciara: Do you hear yourself? You are insane!
Ben: No, not anymore.
Ciara: No, I know. I know that you went to bayview because you killed three women. And my grandpa doug said that you did all this therapy and you got better. But obviously that isn't true. Clearly, you are still delusional.
Ben: Ciara. You need to listen to me.
Ciara: About what? Some wedding that never happened. What are you doing? Ben, what is in there?
Ben: I knew you weren't going to believe me about the wedding, so I brought some things to show you. Just please look at them.
Ciara: And then I want you to leave.
[Stirring piano music]
Ben: What do you think?
Ciara: I... um... it means nothing. This is clearly photoshopped.
Ben: Ciara, that is not photoshop. That is real.
Ciara: Mm. Mm-mm.
Ben: That is real. But there's more proof.
Ciara: What is that?
Ben: This is your engagement ring.
Ciara: That's a washer.
Ben: You are exactly right, mrs. Weston, that is a washer from your dad's motorcycle, because I couldn't wait another day to ask you to be my wife. And I also didn't have the money to buy you a diamond. So I asked you if I could use this as a placeholder until I could get you the diamond you deserved. It's from your dad's motorcycle.
Ciara: No, I crashed my dad's motorcycle. That's why I'm here.
Ben: No, ciara! You didn't come here after the crash. You were with me.
Ciara: No, what are you talking about?
Ben: That crash was the beginning of everything for us. That was the beginning of our love story.
Bernard: We ask you, father, with your son to send the holy spirit upon the waters of this font. Julia harriet, I baptize you in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit. Carver malcolm, I baptize you in the name of the father and of the son and the holy spirit. I know the twins' big brother, david abraham, is up in heaven, looking down on his siblings and welcoming them into their family and the family of god. May god bless these babies and all who love them.
Julia: Ms. Paulina.
Paulina: Oh, mm.
[Both laugh] Congratulations.
Eli: Excuse me, I just want to thank you all for joining us. And if you'll please join us at julie's place to celebrate.
Paulina: Oh, can I get amen?
Chanel: Two days of driving, guess how many times I stopped.
Claire: I don't know, ten?
Chanel: [Laughs] I bet math was your best subject, huh?
Claire: Oh, my god, oh, my god, okay, let me try again. Three. No way!
Chanel: Swear to god. I stopped for gas once, and that was it, all the way from miami to... where are we again?
Chanel: Ah, right. Anyway, I wanted to get here as fast as I could. So that meant no drive-thrus, no diners, nothing. All I had to eat the entire way was those disgusting peanut butter crackers you get in the vending machine.
Claire: Oh, my god, no. The ones that are like orange?
Claire: Why? Why are they orange?
Chanel: Honey! See, that is the burning question.
[Both laugh] And I hardly had anything to drink, just these teeny sips of water because I didn't want to go to the bathroom.
[Sighs] But now that I'm here, I can have as much of this yummy champagne as I want.
Claire: Yes, you can.
Tripp: Hey. Sorry to interrupt.
Tripp: I wanted to talk to you.
Chanel: No worries. Sit down. We'll order another bottle.
Tripp: Of what?
Claire: Of this amazing champagne. It is the best they have, darling. And don't worry, my new bff is buying. This is tripp. This is... oh, my god. I'm so sorry. I didn't even catch your name.
Chanel: Chanel. Like my bag.
Tripp: Very nice to meet you, chanel.
Claire: Oh, sorry, I'm claire.
Chanel: Pleasure. Now let me see if I can get us some more bubbly.
Tripp: Look, I just ran into your great uncle roman. He filled me in on ciara, that she really has no memory over the past few years?
Claire: None. And the last thing she remembers about you and me is walking in on us half naked on the couch right after you two broke up.
Chanel: Say what?
Claire: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were listening.
Chanel: I am now.
[Tripp chuckles uncomfortably]
Ben: After you crashed your bike, I found you on the side of the road.
Ciara: I don't remember that at all.
Ben: Let me tell you. Let me tell you our story. After your accident, I found you. Unconscious on the side of the road. I picked you up. I carried you off. I took you to the cabin. And I set your broken leg. It's not pretty, but I think jordan would be damn proud of me. I told you it was going to hurt like hell. How's it feel? But you were so brave.
Ciara: Like I broke my leg
Ben: When I was done, you were pretty impressed. Yeah. You needed to get cleaned up. So I helped you with your sponge bath. Is it warm enough?
Ben: You were hesitant at first. But then you relaxed and in the end, you kind of liked it. I told you I fixed your dad's bike.
Ciara: Wait, no, but i totaled this. How did you...?
Ben: When I moved in, I started working on it.
Ciara: Thank you.
Ben: And you hugged me. And that's when I knew. I knew that you felt it, too,
Ciara: I might...
Ben: It took some time.
Ciara: I might feel something more than... more than friendship for you.
Ben: But I finally got you to be honest about your feelings for me. And we shared our first kiss. I tried to make a reservation at julie's place for our first date, but she refused to give me a table. So we had a picnic with chinese takeout. And general tso's chicken quickly became our thing. Good things come to those who wait.
Ciara: That's kind of cliché, isn't it?
Ben: Yeah. I'm hoping it's true.
Ciara: So I'm a good thing?
Ben: You are a great thing. After we made love for the first time, I told you that I loved you. I love you. After we made love for the first time, I told you that I loved you. I love you.
Ciara: I love you too.
Ben: I surprised you by recreating our first date.
Ciara: You know, I really do love this tradition of ours, you, me, chinese food, park.
Ben: I really, really hope you saved room for a fortune cookie.
Ciara: Thank you.
Ben: You're welcome. The message inside your fortune cookie.
Ciara: Oh, my god.
Ben: What's it you say? It said, will you marry me? Ciara alice brady, will you marry me? And when you said yes...
Ciara: Yes. Yes, ben, of course I will. Now get up off your knees and come kiss me.
Ben: You made me the happiest man on earth.
Ciara: Are you okay?
Ben: I'm okay.
Ben: You asked if my proposal included a ring...
Ciara: Doesn't this include a ring?
Ben: And since your dad's bike helped bring us together, I told you that I hope this washer would do until I could buy you the diamond you deserved. I put this ring on your finger. And you said it was perfect. Do you remember me now?
Chanel: To the wonderful city of salem, which is a whole lot less boring than I thought it'd be.
Claire: To salem! Mm, mm.
Chanel: Okay, so tell me about tiara.
Chanel: Your ex, the one who walked in on you doing it with claire.
Claire: Whoa, we were not doing it, and my aunt's name is ciara.
Chanel: You were getting busy with her aunt? Ha! You go, boy.
Tripp: Yeah, let's not do this right now.
Chanel: Oh, we're doing it. So who is this cougar and what's her story?
Ben: Ciara, I know deep down inside of you you remember us. You do, you remember our history, you remember our love. Just please. Try to remember.
Ciara: My aunt kayla said that you promised to stay away from me.
Ben: I'm trying to jog your memory. And I think it's starting to work. It's starting to come back to you, right?
Ciara: Wrong. I don't remember a single thing.
[Glass clinking] Everyone everybody knows I love a celebration. I love sharing good food and drink, good music, but most of all, I love coming together as a family. And today, we have two brand new, perfect little souls to thank for bringing us all together and for sharing so much joy.
Doug: Julie and I have had a lot of joyful celebrations through the years, but this day julie is the happiest I've seen her in a long, long time.
Julie: Hear, hear for the babies!
Valerie: Oh, yes!
Paulina: Ooh, right now.
Lani: Now, what is up with all this "I'm not sure I can handle it." You can beat anybody at chess, hack into any computer, but you can't handle a couple of babies?
Theo: All right, first off, I can't beat anyone at chess.
Abe: Oh, you know, he's going to be wonderful godfather.
Lani: Oh, I know he is. In fact, I am so confident that when eli and I have our first post pregnancy date, you, my brother, are watching jules, and daddy, you're on carver.
Theo: Oh, dad doesn't even need to come. I can watch both babies. In fact, you and eli can even take a long weekend if you want.
Lani: You're kidding, right?
Theo: No, I can handle it. I just don't think you can.
Lani: Ah. Meaning what?
Theo: Ever since I got here, I haven't seen you leave jules or carver once. So if this first date ever happens, it'll probably be when the twins are old enough to have twins of their.
Lani: Hmm. Mm.
Paulina: Well, somebody thinks size does matter. Oh, julie and doug. Julie and doug. Julie and doug.
Julie: Perhaps I did get a little carried away.
Paulina: Well, you are-- you're the fairy godmother, so i say, well, go ahead, make all their wishes come true.
Doug: Hello, everyone. Would you step over this way, please? It is time for lani and eli to open their gifts.
Paulina: Oh, well, me. Me first, me first!
Lani: Oh, okay.
[Laughter] You didn't have to this.
Paulina: It's blank. You see that?
Lani: Uh, yeah, auntie. Did you forget to fill it out?
Paulina: No, I just didn't know how much to fill in because I don't know what to which is gonna be 18 years from now.
Lani: Wait, what? Are you saying...?
Paulina: That's right. Auntie p is sending jules and carver to college.
Eli: Auntie P.
Eli: Auntie P.
Lani: Aunt paulina, this is incredibly generous, but
Paulina: No buts. Now, the godparents, they're in charge of the twins spiritual education. Well, I would like to be in charge of the twins academic education. And don't worry, I can afford it.
Lani: Auntie, look, we are touched, but we cannot accept this.
Eli: Can't--why not?
Eli: I don't mean to contradict you, but your aunt wants to, and she wants to and she clearly can. A cop's salary can only go so far.
Paulina: Yeah, listen to your husband. He's a smart man.
Lani: Eli, we will talk about this at home in private. Eli, hey. We'll talk about this at home in private, okay? And I'll let you know.
Julie: And you said i was being extravagant.
Claire: My aunt is not a cougar. She is the same age as me.
Chanel: So she's more like a cousin.
Claire: No, no, no, no, she's more like a bff.
Chanel: And did the nasty with her boyfriend?
Claire: Hey, I just told you, we did not sleep together.
Chanel: Mm. I distinctly heard the word "naked."
Claire: No, you heard "half naked."
Tripp: Okay, can we not do do this in the square?
Chanel: You, chill. Claire, spill. What happened when ciara walked in?
Claire: Well, she got super mad, told us that she hated us both, but then, you know, over time we kind of worked it out. We were on our way to becoming best friends again when she was in a horrible explosion that wiped her memory.
Chanel: Now you're just making stuff.
Tripp: No, it's true. It's true.
Chanel: Hold on. Back to you and claire for a sec.
Chanel: So are you together now?
Claire: No, we did date for a little while, but then tripp decided to marry another girl.
Chanel: Mm, that's cold.
Claire: No, it really wasn't like that.
[Both laugh] He only married haley so she wouldn't get deported.
Chanel: Okay, okay, so you two not together. Is there someone new in the picture?
Claire: Well, I did date tripp's brother charlie for a little while.
Chanel: That didn't last?
Tripp: No, it didn'T. And charlie was my half-brother.
Claire: Yeah. Charlie was murdered.
Claire: Shot to death.
Chanel: Uh, you don't sound too upset about it.
Claire: Yeah, because I'm not. He was a terrible person.
Chanel: Who killed him?
Claire: Well, my aunt sami confessed, but we're still not actually sure if she did it.
Ben: We're going to keep going. We're going to keep going because I got a lot more stuff. I've got newspaper clippings, I have wedding invitations, and I have this.
Ciara: A children's book?
Ben: Does this mean anything to you?
Ciara: No. No.
Ben: What about this?
Ciara: Well, I know it's the sequel, but I have no clue why you're showing it to me.
Ben: You and I were separated for a long time and I knew you were in trouble, but I had no way of knowing where you were or how to reach you. Then I saw this book in my dream, and that's how I was able to find you.
Ciara: No. No, you didn't find me, okay? And we don't have some sort of psychic connection.
Ben: Yes, we do. Yes, we do, and it defies space. It defies time. Ciara, it is everything.
Ciara: No, you're insane.
Ben: No, I'm not insane.
Ciara: You're crazy.
Ben: No, you think I'm crazy. I'm not crazy. I am not going to give up on you. I'm not gonna give up on us.
Roman: Hey, what's going on?
Ben: Because nothing has ever broken us before and nothing is going to break us now because our love, our love is too damn strong.
Ciara: No, for the last time, I don't love you. Uncle roman, I want him to leave.
Ben: Ciara, please just listen to me. You're gonna remember.
Ciara: Get out. Oh.
Roman: Ben, go. Now, okay?
[Cheers and applause]
Lani: Oh, my god, you guys, these gifts are wonderful. We're not gonna have to buy these babies anything for years. We love them all so much and we love you guys.
Eli: Yes, and thank you all for sharing this incredible day with us. And thank you, julie and doug, for being a fantastic host.
Julie: Oh, of course.
Lani: The twins have been so good, but pretty soon they're going to wake up crying and hungry.
Eli: Yeah. Why don't we walk home? I mean, they'll probably sleep longer in the stroller.
Lani: Excellent idea.
Valerie: Thank you.
Paulina: So what's the deal with those two?
Julie: Oh, they used to be an item.
Paulina: Eli's mom and lani's dad?
Paulina: Talk about a close knit family. Well, what happened? Why they'd break up?
Julie: I don't know the particulars, but valerie is seeing someone else now.
Paulina: And mr. Mayor?
Chanel: So great hanging with you guys, but I got to bounce.
Claire: Oh. What about the check?
Chanel: Could you just take care of it? I really have to run.
Claire: But you said it was your treat.
Chanel: When did I say that?
Tripp: Ladies, it's okay. I'll cover it.
Claire: Uh, how? It's like $500. You don't have that kind of cash.
Chanel: If the gentleman wants to pay...
Claire: The gentleman shouldn't have to pay because you said it was your treat, not to mention you kind of drank most of it. So how about you put your money where your mouth is?
Ben: Let me just show you a few more things.
Ben: Ciara, please let me just show you a few more things. You're gonna remember.
Roman: Ben, listen to me. All right? That's enough for now. Leave.
Ciara: And take your stupid junk with you.
Ciara: None of what ben said is true. Right, uncle roman?
Roman: What did he say?
Ciara: He kept insisting to tell me about our love story. He brought me all this so-called evidence proving that we fell in love and that we were married, but it's all lies, right? Uncle roman, please just be honest with me, please. I'm so confused.
Roman: Ciara. That's true. Ben is your husband.
Ciara: How? How is that even possible? I mean, I crashed my bike and then they brought me here, how did I even have time to get married? I don't get it!
Roman: All right, sweetheart. Try to keep calm, all right?
Ciara: Aunt kayla said that i got in an accident.
Roman: You were.
Ciara: Okay, then this doesn't make any sense.
Roman: Okay, you know what? Let me get kayla.
Ciara: Please. Just tell me everything. I promise you, we will tell you everything, but let me get your aunt in here, okay? I will be right back.
[Stirring piano music]
Ben: [Exhales deeply] When I found ciara, I came here to pray for her to survive. And she did. And I am so grateful for that. But, god, she doesn't remember me. She doesn't remember how much I love her or how much she loves me. So, dear god, I promise you, this will be the very last thing that I ask you. Please help her remember.
Ciara: How is this possible? How is it real? How am I married to a monster like ben weston?
Theo: Are you okay?
Ciara: Not really.
Theo: How can I help?
Ciara: Just hold me.
Claire: So how many times have you run the scam?
Chanel: What scam?
Claire: Oh, please, you totally planned this. Do you pick pockets too?
Chanel: No, but I could slap your face.
Tripp: Let's take it easy.
Claire: Chanel like my bag. More like cheap knockoff.
Chanel: Say it again, bitch. I dare you.
Claire: Okay, okay.
Eli: Hey, hey, hey, hey. What's going on?
Claire: This con artist is trying to stick us with her tab.
Eli: Is that true?
Chanel: No, and how is it your business?
Claire: Because he's a cop.
Chanel: Officer, there's no need for you to get involved in this, it's just a little misunderstanding.
Claire: No, eli, it is not a misunderstanding. That check is for more than $500 worth of champagne. Chanel said she was buying and now she's skipping out.
Eli: You know what happened?
Tripp: I don't know. Claire said that chanel was treating.
Chanel: But did you hear me offer?
Chanel: Because I didn'T.
Claire: She's lying.
Chanel: I don't have time for this nonsense; I'm out.
Eli: Excuse me.
Chanel: Get your hands off of me!
Eli: You know her?
Paulina: I certainly do. She's my daughter.
