Scriptwriter: Carolyn CullitonSegment 1:
Brady and Kristen are naked in bed. Brady has a big surprise for her. She tells him she needs sleep. Brady isn't talking about that. He hands her brochures of places they could live together. Kristen found a place with tons of servants, lots of square footage, lots of privacy. Brady - It sounds like a mansion. Kristen - It is. It's my father's.
Kate is having coffee at Common Grounds. She smiles as she recalls sharing Rafe's bed. Sonny walks up - By the look on your face that must be one fine cup of coffee. Kate never thought she'd like decaf. She always thought it was weak and boring. Then she tried this new kind and it is amazing how bold and strong it is and afterwards I sleep like a baby. Sonny arches his brows - Okay. Let me know when you need a refill. Kate - I most definitely will. Sonny, have you seen my grandson lately. Sonny has. We're still friends. Kate - Just friends. Sonny - Yup. Kate thinks that's too bad. I think you were really, really good together. Sonny - We were for a little while. Lucas comes in. Good to see you Sonny. Lucas joins his mom. So why am I in a coffeehouse in the middle of the night? Kate - You're here because I'm worried about Will and the baby. Lucas - Why? Kate - You're not worried? Lucas recalls talking to Will about their secret being out and someone wanting them to pay. He thought everything was fine. Kate - So you haven't heard that Sami is demanding a paternity test I assume. Lucas - Why would she do that? Will hasn't denied that he's the father. Is Gabi saying the baby isn't his? Kate - No, Sami's just causing trouble. Surprise, surprise. Lucas - I tried to tell her to be nice to Rafe and Gabi but she wouldn't listen. Kate - Obviously you have just as much influence over her as you ever have. Lucas - Thank you for that. I appreciate it. Kate - Okay. I'm going to forgive you from making me a great-grandmother at my tender age but in return for that you need to do something for me. You need to make sure and stop Sami before she screws this entire thing up.
The guys are all outside Gabi's door waiting. A nurse comes out and they hear Gabi cry out and go rushing inside. Maxie pushes them out. Nick asks her what she's doing. Maxine - Keeping you from getting in the doctor's way. Nick - What am I supposed to do? I'm just supposed to stand around out here! Maxine - You might try saying a prayer. Nick is going to after Sami but Rafe steps in front of him. I know how you feel but this isn't the time or the place. Nick glares at Sami - What the hell did you say to her? What did you do to her? Sami - I was just trying to make things better. Nick - Better! She's in labour for God's sake. Sami - All I did was apologise. Will - Why were you there Mom? We were all supposed to stay out of her room. Sami - They let Nick in. I thought it would be okay. Nick - But you didn't ask if it would be okay, did you? You snuck in there like you always do because you knew what you were doing was wrong. Sami - I was just talking to her. It was going fine and then all of a sudden she started having contractions again. I swear it's not my fault. Rafe - It's never your fault, is it? EJ shows up and asks Sami what's wrong - is it the baby? She nods yes. Rafe - Who invited him? Sami - I did. Sami is telling EJ that Gabi is having contractions again and they're worried that if they can't stop them ... Nick - Because of you Sami. Are you happy now? Rafe - Would you just get her out of here! Sami - No I want to stay. I want to be with Will. Will - I don't care. I want you gone. I want you to leave. I want you to leave NOW! Sami - I just want to make sure that Gabi is alright. I just need to stay close by. Will - I don't care. I ... do ... not ... care! Leave! EJ takes her away. Gabi asks them what's happening - Is the baby coming? Maxine tells her to calm down. You're in great hands. Kayla - You're not dilating and your water has not broken; that is a good sign. Cam - But we do have to stop these contractions so we're going to give you something. Gabi - Is that going to hurt the baby? Kayla - No. It's just a drug whose job is to stop your uterus from contracting. Your job is to try and relax.Segment 2:
Brady thinks she's joking. She's serious. OMG, it's not happening. Kristen - I would love to live in one of these apt's with you but I promised my Father when he came back to Salem I would move into the mansion. Brady - Now I'm bunking with Stefano DiMera! Kristen - No, you're bunking with me. Brady - Under the roof of the guy who is devoted to destroying my Dad. Kristen - I'm aware it's going to be awkward. Brady - Awkward doesn't begin to describe what it would be. It would be horrible. Kristen's - It's a big place. Brady - Wyoming wouldn't be big enough for Stefano and me. I love you. I don't have any love for your father. I'm not moving into the mansion.
Sami whines to EJ (they're in the lounge). She admits she let into Gabi at the pub. EJ says that was probably not the wisest thing to do. Sami rants about how they're keeping Will from his own child. Then Rafe showed up and he yelled at em and I yelled at him and the next thing we know Gabi was having contractions. Sami thought Gabi was faking but she wasn't. They took her to the hospital. EJ - And you followed them? Sami wanted to make sure Gabi was alright. She was doing better so I went into her room to talk to her. I wanted to apologise. EJ - So you snuck into her room. Sami says it was going fine and then all of a sudden she started having contractions again. It had to be a coincidence because we weren't fighting. Even if we were fighting since when do pregnant women go into early labour because they're fighting. I have 4 children for God's sake. EJ knows she would never do anything to hurt Gabi or the child. Sami whines - Everyone out there thinks differently including Will. EJ - William is frightened, same as you are. The doctor will take care of the contractions, everyone is going to calm down. This whole thing is going to go back to normal.
Lucas will try and tell Sami to leave Gabi alone. Kate - You have to try hard because this is a very delicate situation. Sami's like a bull in a china shop. Lucas will do his best. You know Sami, she always thinks she's right. Lucas gets a call from Sami. Sami thought he should know that Gabi is in the hospital. Lucas - Why, what's wrong with her? Sami - Gabi's having contractions. Lucas - Is she in labour? Kate - What? OMG! Sami - Yeah, they don't know what's wrong with her, they're trying to figure that out. You should come down here because Will needs someone on his side. Lucas will be right there. Kate asks if Gabi is in labour. Lucas - Sami's not sure. She's having contractions. Kate - It's way too soon for the baby. Sonny is hearing all this. Lucas - I know it is. That's why I've got to get to the hospital right now. Kate is going with him. Sonny asks one of the workers to close up for him; I've got to go.
Rafe goes over to Will and asks him how he's doing. Will looks up - it looks like he's been crying. Bad. Why aren't they telling us anything. Rafe - They're taking care of Gabi. Will - Yeah, I know but don't you think it's taking too long. Rafe - It's driving me nuts too. Will - All my life I told myself I want to be a better parent than my parents but I was ready to sign over my rights and pretend that Nick was the father and not me. So I think this is me being punished. Rafe - No! The universe does not work that way. This is not your fault. Will - I don't know. Rafe - Well I do. This thing that happened, who knows why but it's not your fault. Will - Thank you. Rafe - For what it's worth I think you're going to be a pretty darn good Dad. Will - I just figured I'd think about what Mom would do and do the exact opposite. They smile. Rafe - That's a good plan. Will - I just hope I get the chance. Nick is outside Gabi's door. Come on baby, fight for your family.
Gabi is still in pain. This drug is not working. Why isn't it working! Kayla - It takes some time. You need to calm down. Gabi - How can you I do that? Maxine - Because it's for your baby. Look at me and breathe through the contraction; don't verbalize. Take a deep breath and blow it out ... and another ... that's right. Look at me and do your breathing, that's all you need to be thinking about. The contractions start easing off. Kayla - Good job. Maxine - The same thing happened to me when I got pregnant the first time but I did what the doctor said ... Gabi - Was your baby alright? Maxine - I'd say a first year chemistry major at Salem U is more than alright. That child wants to be a doctor. I'm going to go broke paying for it too. What do you want your little girl to be? Gabi - Whatever she wants. Mostly I want her to be more than her mother ever is. Maxine - Her mom's not so bad. Gabi doubles over in pain. It's happening again. Maxine - Look at me and breathe.Segment 3:
Kristen - You never struck me as the type of person who cares so much about what other people think. Brady - I wouldn't if I was moving into the home of someone mildly evil like Al Capone or Adolf Hitler, but this is your father. Kristen - I didn't want to go here but I will. Your grandfather is hardly citizen of the year. Brady - I agree with you. I love him just like you love your father. The fact is if I move into the DiMera mansion I'm going to lose my grandfather because he's going to die, he's going to have a stroke and die. Kristen - I know for a fact the families have made peace. Brady - You're right. How long do you think that's going to last if I'm shacked up with you in the DiMera mansion. What about Dad and Marlena by the way? Kristen - What about them? Brady - If I move into the mansion with you any chance of a reconciliation with them is over. Kristen - I firmly believe that they're going to come around eventually. They're going to have to. Besides EJ told me that Sami and the kids lived in the mansion for months. Brady - That's because Dad and Marlena were in Europe at the time. They didn't have to see it on a daily basis. I did though. You know what it was? Dysfunctional to say the least and it ended very badly. Kristen - I don't know what to tell you. I would love to live with you but I promised my father when he moved back to Salem I would move in with him. I gave him my word. Brady - Just tell him you changed your mind. Kristen - It hasn't even been a year since he lost Lexie, how could I do that? Brady - You could visit him a lot. Kristen - That's not the same. I'm sorry. I'm moving in with my father. If you want to live with me it's going to have to happen there. Brady - Let me ask you something. Why are you taking such a hard line on this? Why is this so damned important to you.
Rafe stands up when he sees Lucas and Kate arrive. Lucas hugs Will. Kate - How is she? Rafe - We don't know yet. Will - How did you guys find out? Lucas - You mom called and told me. Will - At least she did one thing right. Kate - What does that mean? Will - Nothing. I'm just really glad you guys are here. Lucas - We'll be here as long as you need us. Kate - Do you know anything about Gabi or the baby. Rafe - The doctors are in there now. They're just trying to stop the contractions. Kate - OMG, poor baby. She had to have been so terrified. Rafe - Thank you. I know you're as worried about the baby as we all are. Lucas asks Will if he's okay. Do you need anything? Will sees Sonny.
EJ has called the babysitter and she has agreed to stay all night. Sami wants to go out there and see what's going on. EJ points out that Will will come and tell her. People out there are upset. I think you've been shouted at enough for one day, don't you? Sami - Why are my instincts always so wrong. Lucas comes in as Sami and EJ are kissing. Sami thanks him for coming. Have you talked to Will? Is there any news. Lucas - The doctors are still in with her. Anybody know why this is happening? Sami - It's all my fault. EJ - It isn't. Sami - It is my fault. Me and my big mouth now we might lose our grandchild. Will and Sonny hug. Will can't believe he came over here. Sonny heard from Will's Dad and Kate what was going on. We're still friends, I just had to be here. Unless I'm in the way. I can go. Will - No. I want you to stay. Sonny - I can't imagine how hard this is on you. Will - She was just this idea. She was just this problem and then I saw the sonogram and she was trying to suck her little thumb and I put my hand on Gabi's stomach and I felt her kick and it was like she was saying 'Hey, there you are. I've been waiting for you.' And I was like - That's my kid. I have a daughter. And I started thinking about all the stuff we could do together. I could take her camping in the summer, ice skating in the winter. Sonny - You kind of suck at ice skating. Will - I was going to try and get better. I can't fall if she's holding my hand. I really hope I get to hold her hand. Sonny - You know what I think you should do. You should take some ice skating lessons because little kids like to learn when they're young and the way you skate ... you're going to need a head start. Kate asks Rafe if he's seen Gabi. Rafe - I was with her when it happened. Kate - It had to have been scary. Rafe - The only time I felt more powerless is when my sister Arianna died. Maxine comes out of the room. Nick jumps up - How is she? Will joins him - What's going on? Maxine - They gave her an injection to stop the contractions. Nick - Did it work? Maxine - Not so far. I'm sorry I don't have better news. Inside Gabi's room Cam says that she hasn't had a new contraction for several minutes. Kayla - That's good news. How are you feeling Gabi? Gabi - I just feel tired. She gets another contraction. Please help my baby. She can't come now, she'll die.Segment 4:
EJ thinks Sami is overstating the case. Lucas would like to hear it from her. Sami wants to talk to Lucas alone. EJ leaves. Lucas - How is this your fault? Sami - Because right before Gabi started having contractions I was yelling at her. Lucas - About what? Sami - About the fact that I found out she was delaying taking that paternity test. Lucas - You're kidding me, right? You went after her about that. Sami - I was thinking about Will. Lucas - You weren't thinking about anybody but yourself. You promised me you weren't going to cause any trouble. What happened to that? Sami - I know and I'm sorry. I'm really sorry. Lucas - I know you wouldn't do anything to hurt Will and I know you never wanted this to happen. I'm not stupid ... Sami - Thank you for saying that. I'm so worried about this baby.
Kayla tells Gabi she's doing great. Cam - You've got the breathing thing down. Gabi - I don't want to be good at this. Not now. Can't you do something? Kayla - I'm sorry. We can't give you another injection. We've just got to wait this out. Gabi - Can we say a prayer or something. Maxine - Sure we can. That sounds like a fine idea. They join hands. Maxine says the prayer.
Rafe tells Kate that when they brought Gabi here they told Sami to stay the hell away from her. Kate - And she didn't listen to you? Rafe - No, of course not. She snuck into her room. Kate - She is unbelievable. Rafe - Some time has past and I see that I was part of it too. I gave her hell. Kate - Come on, she had it coming to her. Rafe - Well, I think she may have actually felt a little bad. She said she went in the room to apologise. Kate - That's what she says to you. Who knows what went on in that room. Tell you what after talking to Nick we should have found Sami and locked her in a room until the baby was born. Rafe - That's a little extreme. EJ walks up to Will and asks if there's any news. Will - Maxine said they gave her drugs to stop the contractions but it hasn't worked yet. EJ - I'm sorry. Will - Me too. EJ - Your mother feels terrible. Will - I don't care. I can't think about my Mom right now. The only person I can think about is my daughter.
Maxine concludes the prayer. Gabi - Thank you. I feel better now. Kayla - You didn't have a contraction the whole time we were praying. Gabi - I know, I don't feel anything now. That's good, right? OMG, please tell me that my baby's still alive.Segment 5:
Brady is putting his pants on. You think this is some request; if I do what you want I don't have a family anymore. Kristen - Wait a second, Stefano is my family. You don't seem to have any problem at all asking me to turn my back on him. Brady - I can't do this. I'm sorry. Kristen - Where are you going? Brady - I'm going home. Kristen - Because of this? Brady - I don't see any compromise out of this at all. You've taken a really firm stance on this and if that's true, I don't see how we're going to be together.
Kate sits down next to Nick. You must be as worried as I am. Nick nods. Kate - I know that you love Gabi and the baby too. Nick - They're my life. I feel like for the first time I know why I'm here on this earth. I don't think I knew what family meant until now. Kate - Well Gabi's a very lucky girl. Nick - I'm the lucky one. I met Gabi and suddenly everything that was bad and ugly and horrible about my life just disappeared. It's like all that stuff happened to somebody else; somebody that I don't even know that well but someone I feel sorry for. Oh God. My life's in that room and I want to be able to go in there, I want to hold her hand, I want to tell her how much I love her. Kate puts her arm around his shoulder. Someone I have the feeling she already knows.
Sami - Maybe we could go back out where everyone is waiting. Lucas - What are you going to do; use me as a human shield? Sami - Come on. I'll be really quiet. I won't say a word. I won't bother anyone. Lucas - You promise. Sami promises. I just want to be there for Will when he gets good news about the baby. Lucas - Alright, let's go. Kate hugs Will - You'll hear something soon. This can't go on forever. Everyone stops talking when Lucas and Sami join them. EJ steps in - William, you have to know she's just as scared, just as worried as you are. Will ignores her. People pace, people read magazines, people yawn, people sit on the floor, people wait. Cam and Kayla come out of Gabi's room and all eyes are on them.Segment 6:
Cam - It's good news. Kayla - Gabi's contractions have subsided. There's no reason she can't have a normal pregnancy and a healthy baby. Everyone is releived. Nick asks if he can see her. Cam - She's exhausted and she's fallen asleep which is the best thing for her so I'm going to put in an order saying no visitors for awhile. Kayla - The best thing you can all do for Gabi is to go home and get some rest yourselves. Nick - I get what you're saying. I think we all get what you're saying. Do you have any idea what could have made this happen? Cam - Gabi was pretty dehydrated. She's been working a lot of hours at the pub and hasn't been drinking enough water. Sami - That's what caused the contractions? Cam - Yeah and fortunately we were able to stop them. Nick - I can guarantee you that she'll be drinking tons and tons and tons of water. Cam - She's also been under too much stress. Will - And what, so stress can play a part in it. Cam - I think it definitely did. Everyone looks at Sami.
Kristen checks her phone. Nothing. He just walked out on me and went home. I know why. I overplayed my hand. I was in love with the idea of John and Marlena finding out that Brady was living at father's house. Well Brady doesn't know that. He's in love with something too - she looks at herself in the mirror - You. So you can still get your revenge. All you have to do is tell him you never loved him; tell him it was just a game. Just tell him you were playing with him. So sorry Brady. She leaves.
Sonny walks up to Will. How are you doing? Will is fine. Sonny - Why don't you go home and get some sleep. Will - There's no way I could sleep right now. Sonny - You heard the doctors. Gabi is sleeping, she's fine and they're not going to let anyone else visit. Will - I still won't sleep though. Sonny - Plan B. I heard there was this place that served halfway decent coffee, do you want to head over there? Will - Yeah that sounds great.
EJ asks Sami if she feels better now. Sami feels much better about Gabi and the baby of course but the fact that her son and the mother of her grandchild hate me, no. EJ says the crisis is over. William and Gabi will forgive you in time. EJ tells her that he's going to get the car. Stay here and don't talk to anyone.
Rafe asks Cam if Gabi has to take any special precautions now. Cam - She has to stay hydrated and get enough rest and also avoid stress. Kayla - And if she does that she and the baby should be fine. Rafe shakes Cam's and Kayla's hand. I want to thank you guys, you're the best. Nick shakes their hands as well. Kayla - Our pleasure. Kate - Thank God that ordeal is over and Gabi and the baby are doing good. Nick - Just as long as Gabi avoids stress.
Sonny and Will come into the coffeehouse. Sonny tells Will they're not open for another hour so no one will bother him. Will is going to splash some cold water on his face. Sonny will get some coffe going for them. He moves Will's backpack and sees an envelope addressed to himSegment 7:
Kristen shows up at the Kiriakis mansion. Brady - What are you doing here? I'm the only one up right now. Kristen had to see him. Sorry it's so early. He invites her in. Brady - If you're wondering if I've changed my mind, I haven't. I love you. I'm crazy about you ... Kristen - Before you say anything else I need to tell you something. It's really important.
Kate and Lucas are at the elevator. She tells him to wait, she left her reading glasses on the counter. She picks them up and sees Rafe - My reading glasses, such a pain. Rafe - It's been a long night. Kate - Yes and I'm glad it turned out the way it did. Rafe - I'm glad you were here. Kate - Maybe when we're not feeling like zombies we should get together and talk. Rafe - Talk? I'll see you soon. Kate - Okay. Give Gabi a kiss from me. She walks away. EJ walks up to Rafe. That was a beautiful moment between you and my stepmother. What's that all about?
Sonny takes the card out and reads what Will wrote. Will comes back.
Sami - Don't worry about it Mom. It's a good thing you didn't pick up messages until now. We're all relieved that Gabi and the baby are okay. Will is exhaused but relieved. Bye. Nick comes into the lounge and closes the door. You blew it lady and now it's all over.
