In Father Lonigans office, Whitney tells him that the only thing she can think to do is go away and let a loving couple adopt her baby. He says that might be the best solution under the circumstances. She says she couldnt live with herself if she tried to pass it off as Foxs, since it wouldnt be fair. The Priest says thats true, unless she tells him the truth and lets him make the decision. He reminds her that she has told him that Fox loves her, and she agrees, saying thats why she cant put him in this position, that giving the child up for adoption is the only answer. Father Lonigan tells her he will make some calls to find somewhere she can stay until the baby is born. She thanks him for that, then thanks him for everything. He tells her that she and her baby are always in her prayers. She tells him that this way her baby will have a good home with parents that love him, and her secret will be safe forever.
On the Bennetts patio, Fox is looking at the pregnancy test he found when the garbage can was dumped out, wondering whos it is. He knows it cant be his mothers, and figures it has to be Whitneys, and that would explain their stop at the drug store the night before and why she was in the bathroom so long afterwards. He smiles and says What do you know. The woman of my dreams is going to make me a daddy.
In the Crane living room, Ethan and Gwen are snuggled up on the sofa. He tells her this is the most relaxed hes seen her in a very long time. She tells him that although its very hard for her to not think about the baby they lost, there is still so much to look forward to. She says Theresa is going to deliver them a healthy, beautiful baby girl and then they will be the family theyve wanted to be for so long. She says it really wouldnt feel right for her to keep dwelling on the sad part. Ethan remembers Theresa telling him that Fate has made it so the baby shes carrying is hers, and that will bring him back to her. Gwen asks what hes thinking about, and he tells her the same thing she is, the baby. She tells him its like waiting for a miracle, and that before long they will be sitting on that very couch holding their new baby. She then thanks him for being so understanding and realizing how important it is to her. She tells him she loves him, and they kiss. Theresa walks in and sees them, then coughs. Gwen asks what shes doing up, and Theresa tells her shes fine, she just has a real craving for some warm milk like she made her last night. She asks if she can go warm it up, but Gwen tells her no, shes supposed to call her or one of the servants to do things for her. She tells her to sit and shell go warm some up for her and bring it back. She heads to the kitchen, and Theresa sits beside Ethan on the sofa. She looks at him, smiling, and says hi. He says hi back, but looks perturbed.
Luis walks into Beths book store holding Precious hand, sits her at a table and tells her to stay there while he gets them chocolates.
She watches him walk to the counter, then he turns and throws her a kiss. In the real world, Edna, Little Martin, and Precious enter Beths store, and Beth tells her she isnt supposed to bring the monkey there. Precious and Edna become upset that she called her a monkey, and Edna tells her daughter that Precious is an Orangutan, and is much smarter than a monkey. Beth tells her the monkey will scare her patrons, but Edna says she wont scare them any more than Beth does, and that Precious is quite pleasant, unlike her. Little Martin is fussy, but Beth apologizes to him because she cant spend more time with him right now, then goes to help a customer. Edna tells Precious to take the baby and go sit at a table, then goes to Beth, telling her that her life hadnt quite turned out like she thought, since she thought shed be Mrs. Luis by now, but he is with Sheridan while Beth is doomed to waiting on spoiled yuppies who want their café machiatoes a little hotter. Beth, pouring coffee into a cup as Edna talks, moves the pot over and spills the hot coffee on Ednas hand, burning her.
In Sheridans living room, Martin tells Katherine that she cant tell Sheridan that she is her mother. Katherine agrees, saying it might make the girl take her side against Luis and she doesnt want to do that and cause them to split up. Martin says they have to leave right away, but Katherine asks about Paloma, reminding him that she will be broken hearted, that she just found out Martin is her real father and must think he is going to stay there. He says she will get over it, and with them gone, she will turn back to Luis and Theresa and hopefully to Pilar. He tells her to hurry so they can leave before Sheridan gets back.
At that moment, Sheridan and Luis are walking up the path to her cottage. He says he feels a lot better now, and she says she is sorry she took Mrs. Wheeler’s side, that she is just a stranger to her while Luis is everything. He says she means the world to him, too. She says that when they get inside she will call Pilar and apologize for taking Mrs. Wheeler’s side over hers. She says she doesn’t understand why that woman got to her.
They enter the cottage and the Wheelers walk out of the bedroom with their luggage. Both couples are startled and stand staring at each other. (commercial)
Edna is reacting to the hot coffee, shaking her hand to cool it, as Beth pretends to apologize for spilling the coffee on her, saying her hand must have slipped. Edna lets her know she doesnt believe her for a minute, saying the Lord knows shes a clumsy oaf but she did that on purpose. Beth tells her to take the baby and Precious home, but Edna tells her fat chance and says she wants a bandage. Beth slaps a rag on her burn and Edna yelps in pain. Beth tells her mother to go home and put a cold compress on it, it will get better. Edna retorts that it better, or shell sue her for everything she has. Beth tells her to lower her voice, everyone can hear her, but the old woman says shell give them something to talk about and calls Precious over to show Beth how to pour a cup of coffee, since she obviously doesnt know how. Precious jumps down from her chair and goes over there, gets up on the counter and pours a cup of coffee. Edna hands the cup to a customer and says There you go, telling him her name is Precious, its her first time as a waitress, and dont forget the tip. Beth tells her to take her monkey and go home, but Edna says thats some way to talk to her sons babysitter. Beth tells her to shut up and go home, but Edna says if it werent for Precious, shed have to have Marty with her all day long, and shed have to worry about Sheridan stopping by for a sandwich because both their eyes light up when they see each other because they look like mother and son, while Beth and Marty dont look alike. Beth warns her mother not to make any more taunts, and Edna asks what she will do, kidnap Sheridan again, steal her baby again? No, she says, shes lost her accomplice, that she is one lucky lady for getting away with all the atrocities she did last time, and that she is living on borrowed time. She goes on to tell her that this is a small town and Sheridan is going to be running into her baby all the time especially since shes married to Luis. Beth tells her that marriage wasnt legal, but Edna says it will be, and when Luis comes to see his son, Sheridan will be with him so she should be nervous because before too long Little Marty will be the spitting image of his real mother. She says Beth will have to make Marty wear a paper bag over his head. Beth tells her to be quiet, she has customers, but Edna looks around and says not too many, but thats not unusual because she always messes up everything she does. She then asks her how she looks at herself in the mirror every morning, telling her that she would kill herself if she had her looking back at her. Beth, steaming, says I hate you, and Edna replies So, what else is new? She points at Martin and tells Beth to look, its already happening, that she and Luis have dark hair and eyes, but Martin is so fair. Beth tells her she doesnt know what shes talking about, that genes skip generations and theres no reason their child should look like either one of them. Edna tells her it wont be long before someone will look at him and put it all together, and she bets the first one will be Sheridan, since shes so interested in him. Beth says its not going to happen, but Edna goes on, saying that is the day she and Precious are waiting for, the day that Sheridan gets Luis back on the case, and that is the day Beths whole world is going to blow up and shes going to be standing there front row saying I told you so!
Luis asks Martin and Katherine what they are still doing there. Sheridan tells them she was hoping theyd be gone by now. Katherine tells her they were on their way, and Martin says the last thing they want to do is cause them any trouble. Luis tells him its a little late for that. Martin starts to tell him that he wants to say hes sorry, but Luis tells him hes not interested. Then Martin says if theres anything he can do, but Luis looks daggers through him and says hes got a lot of nerve. Martin tells him he hates what they think he did, but Luis says he destroyed their family and asks what more is there. Martin says theres a lot but he cant say any more. Luis tells him not to bother, he wouldnt believe a word he said anyway. He tells Martin he is nothing to him, only a bad memory he will spend the rest of his life trying to erase. Martin is hurt, then tells his son that he wanted to try to say goodbye, leave him something to remember him by. Luis says he has a better idea, then lunges at him, pushing him back against the wall as he asks how about him giving Martin something to remember him by. (commercial)
Ethan tells Theresa its not going to work and stands up, walking away from the couch. Theresa asks what wont, her sitting down, because Gwen is the one who told her to sit down. He tells her he knows what she is doing, like the back massage she had him give her upstairs. He says he knows she wanted Gwen to walk in and find him massaging her, but she says she had some back pain after the procedure and it was completely innocent. He says right, just like it always is, and she comes back telling him it sounds like he thinks she has some irresistible power over him. She says she wishes she did, but she doesnt. He tells her he doesnt wish that, and no matter how often her tells her they have no future together, she refuses to believe it, that she has this idea that they will .then says its not going to happen. She tells him to sit down, that she didnt come down to engage in some back and forth about fantasies, that she just has the strongest feeling that the baby shes carrying is the one they made. He says it doesnt matter, that Gwen will believe its hers and thats all that matters. She says she feels that once this baby is born he wont be able to resist the three of them being a family together. She tells him she is the mother of his child, not a monster, and lays her hand on his shoulder. Rebecca walks in and yells for her to keep her filth hand off her daughters husband.
Fox looks at the pregnancy test and says Whitney and he are having a baby. Ivy walks out the back door and asks him why hes out there talking to himself and tells him to come inside because its cold out there. He says ok, then goes inside after throwing the test back into the garbage. He goes in and starts washing his hands at the sink, whistling while he does so, and Ivy asks why hes so happy, acting like the cat that just stumbled on the canary. He tells her he might have just stumbled onto something better in the garbage, then asks her if she has taken a pregnancy test lately. She laughs and says no, and he hollers I knew it! several times while hugging her. He tells her Whitney is pregnant, but she says he told her he was being careful, but he says accidents happen and this is a wonderful accident to have happen. She reminds him the test could have been Jessicas, but he says no, she hasnt been home in a while and that Kay cant have babies because of the accident she had, so it has to be Whitney. She doesnt look happy, and says she doesnt believe it, but he tells her about taking Whitney by the drug store the night before and wouldnt tell him what she was buying, so it has to be hers. He grabs Ivy again, calling her grandma and saying hes going to be a father. Meanwhile, Whitney comes to the back door saying she can do this, she can leave, have Chads baby and give it up for adoption, then come home and no one will ever know her secret. She walks inside to see Fox twirling around holding Ivy in his arms and asks whats up. Fox says hes just happy because he knows everything, that he knows shes having a baby. (commercial)
Edna looks lovingly at Little Martin and says every day he looks more like his real mommy and less like the psycho, wacko harridan that stole him, then tells Beth thats her. Beth tells her to get out. Paloma walks in and is met by Precious at the counter. She is startled, then wonders that people say they have weird customs in Mexico. She orders a hot chocolate from her, then Beth arrives and tells her not to worry, that shell get it for her, then pushes Precious out of the way. Paloma asks if Precious has been working there long, but Beth says she doesnt work there, she is her mothers caretaker. Paloma is surprised at hearing that, and Beth tells her she shops, cooks, cleans, all kinds of things, and Paloma says America is an amazing place. Beth serves her the hot chocolate and asks where shes from. Paloma says Mexico, and Beth asks if she is Paloma. The girl says yes and is surprised that Beth knows of her. Beth explains that Luis talks about her all the time and they used to be very close. Edna comes up and introduces herself to the girl, then asks Beth if she doesnt think the girl would like to meet Luis son. Paloma is thrilled and says shed love to see him, that shes heard so much about him, and she goes over to look at him. She says hes adorable, but she cant figure out who he looks, like, Luis or Beth. Edna says frankly, he doesnt look like either one of them, but Paloma says he looks like someone she knows. Edna is pleased to see the girl realizes he resembles someone else, but Beth looks worried.
Sheridan runs to Luis and tells him no, not again. She pulls him away from Martin. Katherine jumps in telling him that he is still Luis father, no matter what Luis thinks he did. Luis tells her he knows and hes not going to hurt him. He just wants Martin to know its not over yet. Martin says hes leaving and theyll never lay eyes on him again. Luis asks if he really thinks he can just waltz into town and turn their lives upside down and then leave again. He tells them no, hes changed his mind, and Martin is going nowhere until Pilar has a chance to talk to at lawyer. Martin asks why, and Luis says because its time she files for a legal divorce, and she is going to take him for every cent he ever made. Martin says she can have all the money he has, but its not much. Luis says thats ok, every time he gets a paycheck for the rest of his life he will have to turn it over to Pilar for what he owes her, although nothing can make up for all the pain he caused her. Martin says he could work for the rest of his life and it wouldnt be enough to repay what he owes her. Luis says hell take the rest out of blood, sweat, and tears, and he likes that better, anyway.

Rebecca pulls Theresa up by her arm and drags her off the couch. Theresa tells her shes hurting her, but Rebecca says shes not even started yet, that she needs to stay away from her son-in-law. Gwen walks in with Theresas milk and asks whats going on. Rebecca says the same as always, she turns her back for a minute and Theresa is all over Ethan. Ethan says thats not true, and Gwen asks what the truth is, and he tells her that Theresa put her hand on his shoulder to make a point as they talked and Rebecca walked in a jumped to the wrong conclusion. He tells Rebecca that he doesnt appreciate her upsetting both Gwen and Theresa after what theyve both been through over the last 24 hours, and if she isnt considerate of Theresas feelings, she should at least be considerate of her daughter. He asks if Theresa is ok, and she says yes, Rebecca pulled her arm hard but shell ok. Gwen gives her the milk and tells her she should go upstairs to bed and get off her feet. Theresa agrees and starts out of the room, then turns to Gwen and tells her she really is grateful for everything shes done for her. She walks on out and Rebecca starts in about having seen everything, that after all that little tramp has put Gwen through, she is going to let her get away with murder. Gwen tells her Theresa is carrying her baby, and Rebecca says shes also carrying a flaming torch for Ethan and if she cant see it, she really feels sorry for her. Gwen says she doesnt see it, and that she doesnt believe that even Theresa would take advantage of their desperation, then asks Ethan if she would. He says no, she wouldnt, and her mother is just flipping out as usual. He tells Gwen he loves her and hes looking forward to their life together with their baby, and they are going to have that no matter what Theresa does. Rebecca doesnt look so sure of that , and Theresa, listening outside the door, says Thats what you think.
Fox tells Whitney he wishes she would have told him sooner, that he wouldnt have known about it if he hadnt found the pregnancy test in the garbage. He says hes not an expert at these things, but he does know that two pink lines mean a baby is on the way, and thats what theyve got. He sits her gently at the table. Whitney tries to act like she doesnt know what hes talking about, but he says he knows this isnt the way they planned it but he couldnt be happier. She tells him that she doesnt know whos test he found but it wasnt hers, she didnt take a pregnancy test. Ivy is watching with interest. Fox tells Whitney that he is thrilled and couldnt be happier, and that goes for Ivy, too. Ivy shrugs, but he doesnt notice that. Whitney repeats that the test wasnt hers. He says he knows it isnt his mothers and no one else is staying there right now, and asks about the trip to the drug store last night. She tells him she had a headache and wanted some aspirin, but Ivy says there is plenty of aspirin in the house. Whitney says she thought they might be out. Fox tells her hes not buying it. He says that first she said it was a feminine product, then she had an upset stomach, so they go to the drug store where she wont let him go in with her, wont tell him what she bought, and when they get home she runs into the bathroom and stays for over half an hour. He tells her it doesnt take half an hour to swallow an aspirin and asks Ivy for backup. She shakes her head no. Fox tells Whitney not to be embarrassed, that he is thrilled. She isnt sure, but he says after all theyve been through lately, its time for something good to come their way. He says that he knows on the outside he doesnt look it, but hes going to be the best dad in the world to their baby. She Our baby?, and he tells her he feels like Theresa, that he thinks it is destiny for them to have a baby now. She agrees and hugs him as Ivy looks on, not sure whats going on with Whitney and the baby. (commercial)
Edna tells Paloma that she’s had the same feeling, that Little Martin reminds her of someone and it isn’t Beth or Luis, and asks “Isn’t that peculiar?” She says she’s just dying to know who the little blond-haired, blue-eyed little tyke remind her of, as Paloma continues to study Little Martin’s face closely. Beth she and her mother were just talking about that and it’s not unusual for a baby to look nothing like it’s parents, that it could look like it’s grandparents or great-grandparents, too. Edna says he doesn’t look like anyone in their family, and Beth says maybe it’s someone on Luis’ dad’s side.
Paloma says no, that’s not it. Beth says she should have been there when he was little because he looked just like Luis. Paloma says she wishes she had been, that she’s missed so many family things. Edna says it must have been fun growing up in Mexico, that she’s heard the Mariachis are good looking. Beth reprimands her for speaking like that to the girl, but Edna says she’s an adult, she didn’t say anything she shouldn’t hear. Paloma says it’s fine, but not all Mariachis are good looking. Edna still thinks it would be great to live in Mexico, that it’s a lot less boring than Harmony. Paloma agrees, but says her family was here, then says actually, not all were. She then decides Luis won’t mind if she tells them about Martin and how he was living in Mexico where she was at with his wife, using a different name. She thought they were just a nice couple, but now knows he’s her father. Beth asks about him having a wife, asking if she means he remarried after he left Pilar. Paloma says yes, and Edna wonders at the fact he had the nerve to come back to Harmony with his new wife. She says that takes gall. Paloma defends Mrs. Wheeler, saying she had been like a mother to her, but that Luis is very angry with her and hates her as much as he hates their father. Edna says at least he has the beautiful Sheridan to help him get over it, but Paloma tells them that actually, she had grown close to Mrs. Wheeler and had taken her side against Luis, causing them to split up. Beth lies and says she’s very sorry about that.
Luis tells Martin hes not leaving Harmony until hes paid Pilar back every cent he owes her. Katherine tells him Martin never wanted any of them to suffer, but he says what he wanted doesnt cut it. He says she doesnt care because she knew he was married with children all along. She tells Martin maybe it is best that they leave, but Luis tells them they are not leaving Harmony.
Martin tells him they have no place to stay there, and Luis tells him thats his problem. Sheridan speaks up and tells them the Bennetts have a Bed and Breakfast they can get a room in. Martin says theyll try that, then pick up their bags and walk toward the door. She tells Luis she is so sorry they caused them so much damage, but Luis tells her to save her breath, that shes as bad as Martin, if not worse. Katherine then tells Sheridan she hopes the younger woman wont be mad at her, but Sheridan says that Luis and Pilar are like the only family shes ever had, and besides, the woman had lied to her, she isnt the woman she thought she was, that she never would have been drawn to her had she known the kind of woman she is, and she would prefer it if shed never laid eyes on her. She tells her she never wants to see her again. Katherine is hurt, and she and Martin walk out the door. Sheridan regrets being so harsh, but Luis says that whore stole his mothers husband and deserves no mercy. (commercial)
Beth, behind the counter, tells Paloma shes really sorry to hear about Mrs. Wheeler coming between Luis and Sheridan. Edna, sitting at a table with Little Martin and Precious, says Not! Paloma asks about her and Luis still being friends even though hes with Sheridan. Beth says of course they are friends, that its best for Little Martin to have them both in his life, and that she likes Sheridan, too, saying shes the best. Edna and Precious react to that with disbelief. Paloma tells Beth its good shes so civilized, then says its so good meeting all of them, asks how much for the hot chocolate, then says thanks when Beth tells her its on the house. Edna tells her Hasta la vista! as she walks out, while Beth whispers I have a very good feeling about this. Edna asks her what she said, but Beth tells her she cant wait to find out more about the woman Luis father has been living with. Edna is upset at that, saying she just wants to stir up trouble between Luis and Sheridan, but Beth tells her to go home. Edna tells Precious that just when she thought Luis and Sheridan were safe from Beths tricks, she comes up with another avenue to go down toward their destruction, and that she will not stop until she has separated them for good. Precious agrees.
Katherine tells Martin that shes lost Sheridan again, that its worse than if she never came back to Harmony. Martin says he knows, that she had gotten so close to her daughter that it was the next best thing to having a real relationship with her. Katherine says she could have lived with that friendship, just having her close to her, but he says he doesnt think so, and asks how many times had she almost told her she was her daughter. Katherine agrees, saying she almost told her again in the house, and he says if she had told her and Sheridan had taken her side against Luis, it would have split them up forever. She agrees, saying shed never want to do that, and that at least she has one person who loves and adores her since she cant be there for her, but that it hurts so badly. He says he knows, and she talks about what a wonderful, beautiful woman her daughter has become. She asks how she can live without her in her life now, and how will she go on with Sheridans last words in her mind, knowing she never wants to see her again.
Luis tells Sheridan he knows how hard it was for her to say those things to Mrs. Wheeler and tells her he appreciates her doing it. She says its all right, that he is everything to her while Mrs. Wheeler is a stranger, and that it wasnt a difficult decision at all. He says he knows her better than that, but she swears she means it, she never wants to see that woman again.
Fox says he thinks the good news deserves a celebration and gets sparkling water for them to share. He tells the mama-to-be to come help him pour. Ivy says she thought Whitney would be thrilled at Foxs reaction but instead she seemed shocked and horrified. She wonders how far along Whitney is. Fox gets Whitney settled on the sofa, gets the glasses, and pours the water for them. Whitney offers to go get Ivy, but he says she will find her way in, and she does. Fox tells her to come on in and share the toast with them. Ivy says she has just one question, then asks if shes sure the baby is Foxs or might it be Chads. Whitney drops her glass in shock and it shatters on the floor.
Rebecca tells Gwen and Ethan they are fools if they trust that man-stealer. Gwen tells her not to talk like that, and Ethan says theyve already lost two children, then Gwen says she wont stand there and listen to her tell her she is going to lose another. Rebecca says shes just trying to prepare her for the war that lies ahead, but Gwen tells her she doesnt know what shes talking about, that there is no way Theresa is going to deny her this baby, that she cant because she has no claim to it, it is Gwen and Ethans baby. Shes carrying it to term, nothing more. They hear Theresa yell out in pain and rush to the foyer to see whats wrong. She is doubled up in pain, and says she cant lose this baby. They watch in horror as she asks them to please help her.
Previews: Chad, to Whitney: What? Whats wrong?
Ivy to Whitney: Tell him why youre going to the hospital.
Alistair to Martin and Katherine: I can do whatever I want.
Martins reply: You smug bastard! Im gonna kill you for all the grief youve caused!
Theresa passes out. Ethan, bending over her, to Gwen: Somethings wrong. Somethings very wrong!
