Segment 1: Kirsten is buried under the covers. Brady asks her if she's awake. No. And when I do wake up I'm going to have amnesia about everything that happened last night. It was disgusting. I was drunk. Brady doesn't judge. I love you very much. Kristen thought they were always going to be honest with each other. Brady - We are. Kristen - Then why did you just lie to me. Brady - You think I'm lying? I do love you. Kristen - If you say so. Brady - What is wrong with you this morning? What's going on? Kristen - You're holding something back about us getting married. I know what you told me, it's what you haven't told me that I'm concerned about. You're keeping something from me.
Parker throws blocks at Daniel who is sleeping in the chair to wake him up. Chloe comes into the room. She hands Dan a new cell phone. He notices it's all programmed. How did you get all my data on a new phone. She worked them; told them she was his wife. Dan - You told them you were my wife and they handed over all my data to you? Chloe - It wasn't like that. I knew you needed to be up and running this morning. Dan - How did you convince the phone company? Chloe - It wasn't hard. I remembered your Social Security Number and it's not like you ever change your passwords so everything was pretty much the same as before. Dan - Not everything. Chloe points out that he's a doctor. People need to be able to find him; he needs a phone. This way you got a chance to spend time with Parker. She sees him checking for texts and messages. Do you see anything important? Not really.
Jen opens the door to Hope and hugs her. Thank you for coming. Hope - Of course. You sounded freaked out on the phone and you're not in Chicago where you're supposed to be. Jen - It's just a mess. Kristen - Did Chloe ruin your night? Jen - Yes, but not the way you think. She had help. Me. I shot myself in the foot because I got so angry because of what Chloe planned. Hope - You should have been. Jen - That didn't help me deal well with what actually happened. I was driving home and kept thinking that Daniel was right and I lay awake all night thinking I had sunk to Chloe's level. Hope - If you think that you should apologise ... Jen did. She called the hospital and left a note saying she was so sorry and nothing - not a word back.
Will meets up with Lucas in the park near the square. It's not T. Lucas asks if he's sure. He gave you a lot of trouble when you first came out. Will knows but it's not him. Did you get anything on the phone? Lucas - No, it's a disaposable phone; can't trace it. Will - So we've got to work backwards and figure it out. Lucas - We've got to start with motive. Are you sure Nick didn't send that text? Will - It's not Nick. Lucas - Who else has a reason to get you out of the way? Will - I don't know but Nick's been really great about everything. He's totally come around. Lucas - It sounds like a cover to me. Will - What you're saying does not make any sense. Even if Nick wanted to hurt me, he has no idea I shot EJ. How would he possibly know that?
Nick is in Gabi's room above the pub listening to his audio recording. Gabi comes in - That sounds like Will. Nick thought she was working this morning. She was. What were you listening to?
Kate wakes up and looks around the room and then under the sheet - her reaction is priceless. She sits up and sees Rafe sprawled out on the other side of the bed. OMG. She reaches for her clothes. Rafe turns over, wakes up and sees Kate. Kate - Good morning.
Segment 2: Brady - How did we get from you having a hangover to me being in the hot seat? We talked about this. If we get married right now it's going to kill any chance of me resurrecting my relationship with my father and Marlena. Kristen - You told me that's not the only reason. Brady - I did? Kristen - Yes, when I asked you what was the reason you said 'just me'. Brady says that didn't actually mean anything. Kristen - You were putting me off. Brady - I wasn't. I thought it was the booze talking. I want to talk about this some more but I have to go and get my phone from Daniel and I need to go to the office. I'll talk to you about this later. Kristen says okay.
Lucas - If it's not Nick blackmailing you my vote goes back to EJ. Will - No, that's too twisted. Lucas - For EJ DiMera? Come on! He's dying to look like a hero in your mom's eyes. He sets up this whole scenario and then swoops in to save the day ... that's so like him! What? Will - I forgot about Mom. Please tell me you didn't say anything to her.
Nick - I'm just in nerd-land; it's new speech software. Gabi - It sounded just like Will. Nick - I guess it kind of did actually. You don't look so good. Gabi - I was going to lie down; that's why I came up here. Nick covers her up and comments that she didn't sleep at all last night. Gabi was thinking about the paternity test. Nick doesn't want her worrying about that. It's going to work out for us and our baby, I promise you.
Dan is at the nursing station going through his message sheets - Is this all my calls. The nurse guesses so, she didn't take any calls for him. Chloe recalls ripping up Jen's message. She tells Dan that Parker is ready to go. They thank Kayla. Chloe has a wonderful idea. She knows he's supposed to have Parker all by himself today but I'm not ready to let him out of my sight. Dan will work today then and they can reschedule. Chloe - No, how about I come home with you and Parker for a couple of hours. I'll make sure he's comfortable and settled then you can have him all to yourself for the rest of the day.
Jen thinks Dan is still angry with her; what other explanation is there? Hope reminds her that he doesn't have a cell phone, secondly, his child is sick. Jen points out that there's a phone at the nurse's desk. Hope - No news is no news. You don't know what's going on. Jen calls the hospital. I left a message last night for Dr. Jonas. Oh, he just picked them up. No, I already left him one. Thanks. She tells Hope that Dan just picked up his messages and read them. Hope thinks he's probably still with Parker. How's he doing this morning? Jen doesn't know. Even if she called to check they wouldn't tell her as she's not family but Parker's okay, that's not the reason Dan didn't call. Hope - So he's still upset with you and you agree he has every right to be so maybe you have a little work to do here. Just a little word of advice. Don't assume that Daniel's doing or feeling something or someone. Go talk to him. Jen says she's right. Hope hugs her - she has to go to work. Hope is rooting for her; she'll check with her later.
Rafe pulls the sheets up over his chest. Kate - It's a little late for that, don't you think? Rafe - Maybe. Is it? Kate - I think so. Rafe - So we were ... Kate - Yeah, as I recall. Don't you remember? Rafe - We were drinking. Kate - Yeah. If you don't remember then I ... Rafe - No ... we walked here, right? Kate - Yes. I was going to make a graceful exit before you woke up so ... Rafe - Wait.
Segment 3: Kate doesn't think they need to have a long, drawn out reconstruction of the night. You don't remember ... Rafe - I didn't say that. Kate - We're both adults. No one was harmed so ... Rafe - No, it was just a ... Kate chuckles - mistake.
Chloe is sitting on the couch at Daniel's with Parker. She's so happy he's a doctor, it makes her feel safe to have him around for Parker. Dan has to go and return Brady's phone and pick up some stuff for Parker. He'll be back soon.
Lucas - I would never turn your mother loose on something like this. She'd only make things worse, you know that! Will - Yes, thank you. So what do I then? Lucas - You do nothing at all. I've been thinking about this all night long. He shows Will the text. What does it say? It says 'I know your son shot EJ DiMera'. It doesn't say I have proof, I have evidence ... none of that is in there. Will - They obvioulsy have evidence if they know what I did. Lucas - If they had evidence they would tell you that. It's not here. Will - The police have evidence. All they need to do is go to the police. Lucas - They have the stuff they took from the cabin. Will - Yes and that has my fingerprints on everything. Lucas - I still think they're blowing smoke. Will - Why? Lucas - To rattle you. Will - Well it worked.
Nick - Stop worrying about the paternity test. You won't have to take it. Gabi - How can you say that? You were all for it. Nick - I didn't want to make a big thing with Sami and Will. It's better for now if they think we're on Will's side. Gabi - Well aren't we? Nick - Is that the way it feels to you? Gabi - I think that Will's not going to be a problem. It's just his mom is pushing him ... Nick - Or it could be Sonny. Gabi - Really. Nick - I saw them yesterday at the coffeehouse and the way they were ... I don't know, it just feels that it's possible that Sonny is behind this whole paternity thing. Gabi recalls Sonny telling her he's going to be watching her a lot more closely now for Will's sake.
Chloe answers the knock on Dan's door. It's Jen.
Segment 4: Kristen is on the phone with Stefano. He has some wonderful news. My work here is almost finished so I should be home soon. Kristen - Good. Stefano - Good, is that all you can give me. It must be all about John Black's spawn again. Kristen - Yes it is. I'm concerned about Brady.
Dan and Brady meet up in the square. Dan gives him back his phone. Brady asks how Parker is doing. Dan says they've got him back home. Brady is glad he's alright. He asks Dan what's wrong with him. Dan - A messy night I guess. Brady - Do you want to talk about it. Dan - No, it's Jen I should talk to.
Jen asks if Daniel is here. No. Jen asks how Parker is. Better. Obviously neither of us want to leave him today so we're both spending the day with him. Jen says that's good. She's glad they're doing that. Is Daniel going to be back soon? Chloe doesn't know. Do you want to leave him a message. Jen will come back later. Chloe - Stay. There's something we should talk about.
Gabi apologises. I'm just being irritational. Nick says no, you're not making this up. Whatever you're worried about, tell me. Gabi - I'm scared they're going to take the baby. Nick - They have no grounds to question you as a mother. They don't know anything except for your ex-con husband. I guarantee you this will not go before a judge. I promise you I will not cost you this baby. I'm working it out right now.
Lucas - You're really worried about this, aren't you? Will is. Lucas doesn't think anything is going to come of this. It's just any empty threat. Will - It's not just a threat. It reminds me of what an idiot I could be, trying to kill somebody. Lucas - You tried to kill EJ DiMera. There's a whole bunch of us who would want to do that. Will - It was a stupid move. It was irrational and you ended up paying for it when it should have been me. Lucas - I was not going to let you go to prison. Will - You should have. Lucas - I didn't give you a choice so if you want to blame someone, blame me. Will - I should have owned up to what I did no matter what you told me to do. Lucas - Your mom and I screwed up your life enough. We weren't going to let you start out with a record too. You didn't deserve this. You're a good kid. You're a good man. You're going to be a good dad. Will - I want to be. Lucas - You will be.
Rafe - You're right. Kate - Do you think it was a mistake? Rafe - I have not been in this position in a long time so I don't know what to say. Kate - Exactly the reason why we shouldn't talk. Rafe - It is coming back to me btw. We were drinking. You were telling a story about the Italian witch and then you tried to walk in heels ... Kate - Alright, alright. If you really need to talk about it I would really prefer to do it upright, clothed and clearheaded so let's just try and do that. Rafe starts laughing. Kate - Really, you're laughing? Rafe - The stairs on the way up here. Kate - WOW. Okay on my way out I'm going to make sure nothing was broken. Rafe - You don't have to go. Kate - I thought that we both agreed this is a big mistake. Rafe - Well you were putting words into my mouth. He takes her hand - they stare at each other. Kate leans in - What the hell. They kiss and pull the sheet over their heads.
Segment 5: Kristen knows Brady is keeping something from her. Stefano - Don't forget what you are keeping from him so don't be like a spoiled wife or a hurt mistress. You have to keep your eye on what you're going to do here because this is something you have chosen to do. Kristen knows that. I'm upset because I'm missing something. I thought my research was so thorough that I knew everything there was to know about Brady. Stefano - Don't get so involved in the mystery that you forget about the prize. Kristen - I'm going to get it out of him and he's going to propose and I'll probably break his heart before you even get back here unless of course you want to watch when it happens. Stefano - No, get this over with as soon as possible. Kristen - Are you sure you're ready to come back here? Stefano - Why wouldn't I be? Kristen - Because nobody likes you here. You'll have to run into your ex-wife Kate all the time. Stefano - So what, she's old news. As a matter of fact I don't even think about her anymore.
Rafe and Kate chuckle. Wow. Rafe - So I'm guessing that's the second mistake. Kate - Speak for yourself. Rafe - Really? Kate - Really. I can not be responsible for any of my actions before my second cup of coffee, that's all I'm saying. Rafe - Are you really going with that? Really? Kate - OMG. This doesn't make any sense. It makes no sense whatsoever. We could end up on totally opposite sides of a war. Rafe - What? Are you talking about Gabi and Will? You said last night, no sides. What happened to that and reasonable reasonableness? Kate laughs. I did say that, didn't I? Rafe - You did. You also said you're going to help me with Sami. Kate - We both know the odds of that working out. Okay, I'll talk to her but you need to keep an eye on Nick. Rafe - Nick? Kate - Yes Nick. I don't trust Nick. I know he's going to marry Gabi and you're all in love with him but I'm not convinced. Say it's survivor's instinct ... you need to keep your eye on him. Rafe - Okay. Kate sits up - Oh, ow, she rubs her forehead. Rafe - Slow and easy. Kate - It's better horizontal. Rafe - Sure was. They laugh. Kate - I have to go so thank you. Last night was unexpected. Rafe - Yeah, in a good way. Kate - Oh yes. She stands up with a sheet wrapped around her. I really do have to go. Rafe - The deadbolt on the inside; the key's in a canister under the sink. Kate - Really? I'm surprised you trust me. Rafe - I didn't say I trust you. I'm moving as soon as you leave.
Nick knocks on Hope's PD office door, you got a minute. She always has time for him. How's Gabi. Nick - She's stressed. Will asked for a paternity test. Hope - Out of nowhere? Nick - Not really. I can guess where the idea came from. Hope - Sami? Nick - Yeah. Hope - This doesn't make any sense though. Gabi isn't claiming that he's not the father and she's been involving him in everything. Nick - Exactly. So why make a big deal about a paternity test when the paternity isn't even in question? Why make a paper trail? Sami is pushing Will to go for custody of this baby in court.
Rafe knocks on Gabi's door. He asks if he woke her. No she was just resting. Rafe thought she was working today. She was but she was too tired. Rafe - Are you not sleeping okay? Gabi - It's kind of hard. Rafe - What's wrong? Gabi - I'm not sure yet so don't freak out. Rafe - Why, because you're freaking out for me? Gabi - You were right. Sami's coming after me.
Chloe - What you did last night was inexcusable. I don't know how or why you have this saintly reputation because that move was pure cruelty. The fact that you could lie to Daniel about ... Jen - I didn't lie to Daniel, I lied to you and considering your history do you really want to talk about lying to Daniel. Chloe - What if Parker had been sicker or god forbid, he had died and his father wasn't there because of your paranoia. Jen - It's not paranoia when you know someone is out to get you. I know about the note to call Child Services. I know the stunt you pulled the first night Daniel and I tried to get away. Chloe - This is sad. Jen - Really, you're not subtle at all. Now I know last night was a genuine emergency. I understand that was not planned but I do know that you and Anne were at Inferno because you thought Daniel and I were going to be there. Chloe - This is unbelievable. You're the one who does something terrible and unforgiveable and I'm the one being grilled. Jen - I am so sorry you couldn't reach Daniel and that will never happen again but I'm telling you all of this is not going to help you to get Daniel back. Chloe's had enough. Jen - You're the one who asked me to stay. Chloe - You know what, you can go now. She closes the door. Dan gets off the elevator and sees Jen outside his door.
Segment 6: Gabi - I kind of know where Will is coming from. Rafe - This sounds like Sami though. Gabi - Or EJ. He's a lawyer, right? Rafe - Right, so he's building a case against you. The hell with that. I'm on this. Gabi - Stop please. Don't because everytime you go over there Sami gets worse. I know you're trying to help but no. Rafe - Okay, I am going to help by not going over there and stirring her up. I probably started this, didn't I? Not everyone on that side is nuts. I know exactly the person to talk to.
Brady returns to Kristen's room. I do love you. You can count on that. Kristen - I think I just lost this conversation. Brady - You were right. The reason I can't get married to you. It's not just about my Dad and Marlena. I didn't tell you everything.
Jen says it feels like she hasn't seen him in days. She wants him to know how happy she is that Parker is okay. Dan thanks her. So that's it? That's why you came all the way over here? Jen - Yes, isn't it obvious. Dan - No it isn't. They both start talking at the same time and then they hear Parker crying. Jen - You need to go be with your son. Chloe is going to be thrilled that you're here. She leaves.
Segment 7: Hope can't believe it's come to this already. They've gone from zero to custody battle. Nick - I know. We can not lose this baby because of me. Hope - That isn't going to happen. We'll vouch for you. The Horton's will stand behind you. You're a good man. Nick - Thank you and that's incredible but is that going to be enough? I mean it's Family Court so the rules are a little different, aren't they? What counts as evidence? Hope - Whatever the judge wants to hear basically. In Family Court the standard and the burden are different and the rules of evidence are very different. Nick - What about a tape recording? Hope - If the judge feels it's relevant to the case, yeah, sure, it would be allowed.
Will is sitting on the couch in the square. He opens a big brown envelope addressed to him and pulls out a taped box.
Jen asks the nurse if she's sure Daniel checked all of his messages. The nurse says he read them and threw some of them away. Kayla comes up to the nurse's station and asks Jen if she heard Parker went home. Jen - Yes, it's really great. Kayla - Is something wrong? Jen - Yeah, I made a mistake and I just have this sick feeling Daniel's not going to forgive me for it.
Chloe comes out's of Parker's room and tells Daniel it's perfect. It has everything. Dan thought he heard Parker crying. Just for a second - he wanted his choo choo. Dan tells Chloe to help herself to some food; she's going to be here for a little while longer. He goes into Parker's room. Chloe mutters - Oh yeah, I'm going to be here for a while longer.
Brady tells Kristen to sit down. It's not easy to talk about but you deserve to know the truth. I can't marry you ... it's not because of Dad or Marlena ... it's not about waiting until things calm down ... those aren't the reasons at all. It's not going to change. I can't ever marry you.
