he wants to have a cup of tea with her
she thinks he wants to check if his grandmother is gaga again
nicole runs into chad at the square
she was shopping and has lots of bags
she tells him she signed up at saint lukes and got a kids name with a family with no money and she shops for the kid
and the parish gives presents to the parents so they can give their children gifts
its a lot of fun , got her in the x-mas spirit so much
she bought sydney a few things
and ever since ej and i got divorced he made it clear that i cant see her again
i was hoping you could put them under the tree
i havent seen her in so long
i dont want her to forget me
chad doesnt say anything
she says ok sorry i bothered you
and she starts to walk away
he says i have a pic of sydney with santa want to see it?
john and nick talk in a room in the church
nick says he is happy about marrying gabi
Marlena asks gabi if she is ashamed of Nick or her pregnancy since she never told her family about neither of them
gabi says im not ashamed of anything
im not afraid to tell them im getting married cuz im pregnant and the father has a prison record
do you want to put this all on nick?
Mar says im not trying to blame nick
but i think he has been irresponsible
gabi says what about me i have been irresponsible
mar says nick is older he knows how not to make a baby
gabi says i want this baby
and nick is making a big sacrifice
mar says its not a sacrifice to marry the mother of your child
Sonny tells Will that he figured out what the secret is between him and Gabi and Nick
you dont have to cover it up anymore
i know what happened between you and gabi
john says what is it about marrying gabi that makes you so happy
nick says the first time i met her ,i knew she was what i was looking for
she needs me
but she doesnt hang all over me
i know she loves me but she has her own life
and own friends
she makes me feel better about myself
john says what a woman, im surprised at how fast it all happened
gabi says nick is committed to spending his life with the baby and me
mar says its only a sacrifice
if he doesnt love you
why call it a sacrifice this is nicks baby
gabi has flashback to Will
she says why are you twisting my words
mar says im not
gabi says nick and i love each other and we want to give this baby a wonderful life isnt that enough?
Will says what are you talking about
what do you think happened be me and gabi
sonny says the last time i saw you looking happy
was the first night we were together
and then gabi showed up
and she looked a wreck and wanted to talk to you alone, thats when she told you she was pregnant
and then you changed
i could tell something was weighing you down
Will says i couldnt tell you
sonny says why couldnt you be honest with me ?
Nicole looks at the pic of sydney sitting on santas knee
she says i miss her so much she is so cute
chad says i wish there was something i could do for you
if i put the presents under the tree Ej will freak out and make your life worse than it already is
she says sorry i asked
have a nice x-mas
he says go wrap your presents and i will figure out some way to get them to sydney
she says what about EJ?
He says he cant know where they came from
which means sydney cant know where they came from either
she says ok but i will know she has them
so thank you so much
abi comes over
and she says i was looking for you nicole
caroline says Will was her for breakfast and roman was here for lunch
now you are here to cover the tea time
eric says we just by in case you need backup
she says i dont like to be the center of attention
you dont know what it means to me that you are saying midnight mass this year
she says are you getting enough sleep?
He says the hospital called for a priest 2 nights in a row
she complains that he is taking on a lot
he says if shes tops worrying about him he will stop worrying about her
she says you act as if you have to prove something
he says i do
nick says i dint think the purpose of these pre cana sessions was to convince me not to marry someone
john says im not doing that
i said it was happening too fast
nick keeps looking at the door to the room that gabi and marlena are in
john notices and says why do you keep looking at the door , are you nervous about whats going on with gabi and marlena?
nick says no i dont think i like the whole divide and conquer strategy
we always do everything together
i believe in her and
she helps me believe in myself
father eric never told us that you and marlena will be doing these sessions
with us, i had a prison therapy session with marlena and she knows everything bad about me
she might tell gabi i would make a lousy father an husband
gabi says it feels like you are ex amining the bad sides
mar says if eric had told me we would be counselling you and nick
i would have refused
because of you relationship with Will
i know you had a bad break up, i know you were really hurt
gabi says i was
but Will told me he was gay and i understood
mar says i know you had very strong feelings for him
i had a sense that if he had returned those feelings
i might be sitting here talking to you and my grandson
Will says im sorry
sonny says dont you think i would have eventually figured this out
i saw gabi before you asked me for the money and she was looking sick as a dog
she said it was the flu
she didnt want Nick to know that she was pregnant and you asked me for money to help her get an abortion
there is only one reason why she told you and no one else that she was pregnant and its the same reason she wanted you to take her to the abortion clinic
Caroline tells eric she doesnt want him to burn himself out
you are different than you were before
he says im grown up
she says there is an uneasiness about you and it started when you came back from Africa
gabi says i use to me Wills girlfriend and now im not
what difference does it make?
mar says maybe im the wrong person to talk to you
i seem to be upsetting you
gabi says if you dont approve of what we are doing
nick and i are still going to be fine
i care about will
and he is one of my best friends
but no one has ever made me feel the way nick
i can see he loves me as much as i love him
and thats a first for me
abi says you helped dan save my moms life
i wanted to say thank you
nicole says i didnt do much dan is the hero
abi says couldnt have been easy for you
nicole has a flashback (her telling dan that he loves jen)and says no but i have made peace with that
i care about dan enough to want him to be happy
hope you and your family have a happy x-mas as you can under the circumstances
abi says thank you and the same for you
chad says that was great of you to say that
abi says she is left with nothing in this mess
its hard not to be a little bit sorry for her
he says i know what you mean
she says you were sweet about Sydney
chad says she really loves that kid
abi tells him she has her dress for the wedding
she is gabis maid of honour
he says well i guess someone has to be
abi says i know you dont like her anymore but gabi is my good friend
and if you and i are going to be hanging out together again i need you to deal with that.
gabi says i met nick at one of the worse times in my life
i cant tell you about it
but it was really bad
when i met nick i had this feeling that things were going to get better
he always showed me that he loved me
i just knew how he felt about me
i didnt have to wonder or try to figure it out , i just knew
Will says im so sorry
i wanted to tell you
its been driving me insane
Sonny says i can tell
Will says i took her to the abortion clinic cuz she wanted me to
it was her decision
sonny says yes but i have the right to know what im paying for
Will says sorry that day was crazy
mom and rafe found out and showed up
and then nick showed up and gabi changed her mind
if i could take back everything then everything would be different
sonny says Will its ok
Will says you do?
You really understand
sonny says yeah i know you and gabi were together when i first got to salem and you werent ready to accept being gay
Will says i wasnt fair to her
sonny says you must have done something right , she finds out she is pregnant and she turns to you ,cuz you are great to her
then she asked you to keep that secret even from me and you did it
i dont think less of you for that
will says so you know everything and you still dont hate me
you are the most incredible person i ever met
sonny says so i guess gabi really didnt want nick to find out she was pregnant
im glad she changed her mind
im not crazy about him but he is the babys father
mar says i think you are getting married for all the right reasons
you have convinced me
you are going to face some in obstacles
gabi says we are , but i think we will get through it
mar says i think so too
nick and john come in
john says see nothing to worry about.
Abi says i know gabi isnt your favourite person in the world
and i wish you could tell me why
chad says i wish i could too but i cant
abi says she needed a maid of honour
and Wills mom was putting the pressure on
chad says you dont have to explain yourself
is this dress ugly
she says no it isnt
he says arent bridesmaids dresses supposed to be ugly, shiny, big bow
she says no, i have much better taste than that , except in men
hen says ouch so you are not going to take me up on your offer
she says that sweet offer to go out with you because we have both been dumped
dont know how i can turn that down
he says there are worse ways to spend an evening
she says you are right
then she goes on at what could be worse
stomach flu etc.
Caroline says you must have seen some terrible things in Africa
eric says the suffering there is unimaginable
she says but you dont want to talk about it
if you ever do im here
and dont worry about me blabbing about it
because i forget half the things people tell me anyway
she has to get back to the kitchen
he has a flashback of his nightmares
he turns around and nicole is there
she says are you ok?
Abi lists all the things that are worse than going out with him
he says what if we had a good time
i know we have been laughing and i know life hasnt been a picnic for either one of us especially you
i know its x-mas so from one friend to another, how are you doing?
Will says so you are upset about
is that you wish you had known you were paying for gabis abortion
sonny says yeah she had a right to make a choice
i was upset because i was in the dark
i want you to feel like you can tell me anything
Will says i do
sonny says its ok
if gabi didnt want anyone to know she is pregnant and you respected that
and no matter what i think of her , im not going to say anything to anybody
Will says it over now nick knows everything gabi loves him
sonny says was she afraid she would lose him he found out she was pregnant?
Will says thats it
sonny says guess she was wrong cuz they seem happy
Will says yeah they are getting married
so we dont have to talk about this anymore
sonny says yes i prefer if we never talk about gabi
will says works for me
what are you doing for x-mas?
Eric says i Didnt see you come in
you startled me but im fine
she says good ,i need you to be fine
i was shopping for presents for my kid at the parish
and i couldnt help but thinking that this would have been my first x-mas with my baby
and how i cant see Sydney
he says i know it must really hurt
she says then i ran in to Abigail
and she was nice
but it reminded me that jen and dan will probably be spending x-mas together
sometime x-mas sucks you know
he says yeah i know
she says i know you say you are fine but you look like hell
he says its just that i have so much to do
she says you need a nap
he says i think you are right
Will asks sonny to go to the Horton family x-mas with him
Sonny says i think my mom will have a problem with it
unless you come to my house too
ever have a Greek x-mas ?
Will says no but im looking forward to my first one
gabi and nick come back to the pub
they tell Caroline they were at the pre -cana session and
john and marlena counselled them
she says her and shawn use to council young couples for awhile
Will comes in
Caroline says if you are here to check on me im good to go
will tells gabi and nick he thought sonny found out but he didnt
but he knows i took you to the clinic and helped you get the money for the abortion
gabi says did you tell him he was wrong?
Will says no, not going to lie to him nymore than i have to and he wont tell anyone
gabi says sonny cant stand me and he is chads good friend
what if he tells chad
chad tells abi the first x-mas after his mom died was the worse
she says her dad made a big deal out of every holiday when he was around
he always did crazy things
and he always told us
that santa was real at x-mas
she feels bad for her mom
jj wont come home for x-mas
and she got appendicitis
chad says you should worry about yourself
i told myself if i got through the first x-mas that there would never be another one like that, as hard as that one
she says was it true?
He says yeah
you are always going to miss your dad
just make it through the first one that helps thank you
caroline asks nicole does she know where eric went she was having tea with him
nicole says no
eric is praying before he takes his nap
he says please help me forgive myself
john and marlena are at the square
he says they have to spilt up
she says what?
He says so they can buy their x-mas gifts for each other
she laughs said she overreacted because of talking to gabi
they talk a bit about nick and gabi
he says today made him realize how lucky they are, they have been through the big battles and i am still more in love with you than ever before
she says i am too
he says im grateful because you listen to what ever is on my mind and i know you will always be honest with me , even if its not easy
she says i dont know what i did to deserve you
john says i do ,you were you
chad gets to the coffee place
he says you worked things out with Will?
chad says guess so

sonny says i promised Will we wouldnt talk about it
chad says thats what she does gets between friends and couples
Im happy for you and Will but i hope you know you still cant trust gabi everything i told you about her is the truth
sonny says i know that
Will says sonny wont tell chad
he gave me his word
gabi says but what if chad figures things out , Sonny did
Nick says well even sonny didnt figure out the most important part
he still thinks im the father
and everyone else does too
you and i are getting married, we are going to be raising this baby together
who is going to figure out that the biological father is actually some gay boy
we need to calm down
i have to get to work

Brady Pub - Part 1: Caroline comes of the kitchen and gives Eric a hug. Lydia said a priest was looking for me; I thought it might be you. Eric - Well, if you have time ... Caroline - For what? Eric - I thought it would be nice to have a cup of tea with my wonderful Grandmother. Caroline - Sin of omission Father. Eric - What did I omit? Caroline - The real reason you're here; to check to see if your wonderful grandmother is gaga again. Will was here for breakfast. Roman was here for lunch and you're here to cover the tea time. I may be slightly dumb but I'm not stupid. Eric - We love you and we want this to work for you. We just stop by in case you need backup. And if you don't like it too bad. Caroline - Don't get fresh with me young man. Eric - You're not upset about it, are you? Caroline - I don't like being the center of attention. Do you know what it means to me that you're saying Midnight Mass this year. Eric - Do you know what it means to me that you're going to be there? He yawns. Sorry Grandma ... Caroline - Are you getting enough sleep? Eric - The hospital called for a priest 2 nights in a row. Caroline - You're doing too much. Eric - I'll be fine. I just need a good night's sleep. Caroline - Can't Father Tobias do some of that. Eric - He was doing it before I got here. He deserves a break too. Caroline - Sami tells me that you're going to marry Nick and Gabi and Marlena tells me that you're running the board meetings. Eric - And you need to stop spying on me. Caroline - I think you're taking on a lot. Eric - I'll make you a deal. If you stop worrying about me I'll stop worrying about you. Caroline - I've got to say one thing. You act as if you've got to prove something. Eric - Because I do.
HTS - Part 1: Nicole sees Chad and says hi. I haven't seen you much since I've been exiled from DiMeraland. Chad - I'd say it's great to see you but we really don't give a crap about each other. Nicole - Oww. Okay, it's almost Christmas. Chad - You buying out the stores? Nicole - St Luke's has this really great thing where you can sign up and get a kid's name from a family who has no money. You shop for the kid from his Christmas list and then the parish gives presents to the parents so they can give them to their kids on Christmas morning. Chad - Oh, that's really nice. Nicole - It's kind of fun too. It got me into the Christmas spirit so much I bought Sydney a few things. I couldn't help myself. Ever since EJ and I got divorced he made it very clear that I can't see her anymore. Chad - So that's why we're having this conversation. Nicole - I was hoping that you could put them under the tree. I haven't seen her in so long I don't want her to forget me. Silence. Nicole - Okay, sorry that I bothered you. She starts walking away but Chad calls out to her. I have a picture of Sydney with Santa. You want to see it?
St Luke's - Part 1: John tells Nick that he's sure Gabi and Marlena are going to be just fine. Nick - I know. John - Now this is your turn to discuss your innermost feelings about marriage with a guy you hardly even know. They chuckle. Nick - I could talk about that all day. I've never been happier about anything in my entire life. John - So what is it about marrying Gabi that makes you so happy? Nick - Well the first time I met her I knew she was what I was looking for. John - And what was that? Nick - You know she needs me but she doesn't like to hang all over me. I know she loves me but she's got her own life, her own friends. She makes me feel better about myself then I've ever felt before. John - Yeah, what a woman. Nick - What? You don't belive me. John - Absolutely I do. Nick - Then why are you looking at me like that? John - I guess I'm just a little surprised about how quickly all that has happened.
Marlena asks Gabi if she's ashamed of being pregnant or ashamed of Nick when she finds out that Gabi hasn't told her family about the baby or wedding. Gabi - I'm not ashamed of anything. Marlena - Then why aren't you telling your family about the big changes in your life? Gabi - You think I'm afraid of telling them that I'm getting married because I'm pregnant and the father has a prison record, right? Marlena - That is what I think. Gabi - You want to blame this whole thing on Nick. Marlena - I'm not trying to blame Nick although I think he has been fairly irresponsible. Gabi - What about me? I've been irresponsible. Marlena - Nick is older than you are. He knows how not to make a baby. Gabi - I want this baby and Nick, I would really like to show you all the things he's doing; the sacrifices he's making. Marlena - It isn't a sacrifice to marry the mother of your child. Gabi - Nick is committed to spending his life with the baby and me. Marlena - It's only a sacrifice if he doesn't love you. Gabi - Of course he loves me. We both love each other. Marleana - Then why did you call it a sacrifice? This is Nick's baby too. Gabi recalls telling Will that he's the father of her baby. Gabi - Why are you twisting my words? Marlena - I don't think that I am. Gabi - Nick and I love each other and we want to give this baby a wonderful life. Isn't that enough?
Common Grounds - Part 1 : Sonny tells Will that he figured out the secret between Will, Gabi and Nick. Will - I don't know what you're talking about. Sonny - You don't have to do that anymore. Will - Do what? Sonny - Cover it up. I know what happened between you and Gabi. Will - What are you talking about? What exactly do you think happened between me and Gabi? Sonny - It took me a while to figure it out but I did. And what hit me is that the last time I saw you look at Gabi is the first night that you and I ... Will - Were together. Yes, I remember. Sonny - And then Gabi showed up at the door. She looked a wreck and wanted to talk to you alone. And that's when she said she was pregnant, right? Will - Right. Sonny - And then you changed. I could tell that something was weighing you down. Will - It makes sense, don't you think? Sonny - I asked you so many times what was wrong. I was afraid it was something I did. Will - I couldn't tell you. Sonny - Why couldn't you be honest with me?
HTS - Part 2: Nicole looks at the picture on Chad's phone. OMG, I miss her so much. She's so cute. Chad - I wish there was something I could do for you; really I do. Nicole - But there isn't, is there? Chad - If I put your presents under the tree EJ's gonna freak out. He's going to make your life worse than it already is. Nicole - I'm sorry I asked. Have a nice Christmas. Chad - Just hold on a second. Go wrap your presents. I'll figure out some way to get them to Sydney. Nicole - What about EJ? Chad - He can't know where they came from which means that Sydney can't know where they came from, okay? Nicole - Yeah okay. I'll know she has them and that means so much. Thank you. Abby walks up and greets them both. Nicole - I'll let you guys catch up. Abby - Actually I was looking for you. You helped Daniel save my mom's life and I just wanted to say thank you. Nicole - I didn't do that much. Daniel's the hero. Abby - Right but it couldn't have been an easy situation for you. Nicole recalls telling Daniel how much it will mean for him to be back with the woman he loves, Jennifer. Nicole - No but I made peace with that and I care about Daniel enough to want him to be happy. I hope you and your family have as happy a Christmas as you can under the circumstances. Abby - Thank you. And I wish the same for you. Nicole leaves. Chad - That was really great of you to say that. Abby - She's left with nothing in this and it's kind of hard not to feel a little bit sorry for her. Chad - I know what you mean. Abby - You were really sweet about Sydney. Chad - She truly loves that kid. What's going on? It seems like everybody is shopping today. Abby - Not me. This is my dress for the wedding actually. Chad - You're going to Nick and Gabi's wedding? Abby - Yes, I'm the maid of honour. Chad - Well somebody has to be. Abby - I know that you don't like Gabi anymore and I don't even know why but Gabi's my really good friend and if you and I are going to start hanging out together then I need you to deal with that.
St Luke's - Part 2: Nick - I didn't think the purpose of these Pre-Cana conferences was to convince me not to get married. John - Not trying to do that. Nick - You just said this was happening too fast. John - What I was trying to say is that it takes a long time to get to know someone. The church teaches that a marriage is forever. Nick - I know that ... John - Why do you keep looking at the door? Are you nervous about what's going on with Gabi and Marlena? Nick - No, I just don't know if I like this whole divide and conquer strategy. John - Is that what you think is going on here? Nick - No, it's just that Gabi and I have always done everything together. That's the way it's always been. I know that always hasn't been that long but it's always felt right to us. I believe in her and she helps me believe in myself. John - I can tell. Nick - You know what my problem is. My problem is Father Eric never told us you and Marlena would be doing these conferences with us. I had a prison therapy session with Marlena. She knows every bad thing that there is to know about me. John - You know she can't divulge any thing that she told you in a session. Nick - Sure but that doesn't stop her from telling Gabi that I would make a lousy husband and father.
Marlena - I'm sorry if I upset you but counselling is about looking at an issue from every possible angle. That's why I think Eric wanted me to talk to you. Gabi - I understand. I just feel that you're examining only the bad sides. Marlena - Let me be frank. If Eric had told me we would be counselling you and Nick, I would have refused. Gabi - Why? Marlena - Because of your relationship with Will. Gabi - What does that mean? Marlena - I know you had a bad breakup. I know you were very hurt. Gabi - I was. For a long time I thought there was something wrong with me. Then you told me that he was gay and I understood. Marlena - I know you had very strong feelings for him and I had a sense that if he returned those feelings well I might be sitting here talking to you and my grandson. Gabi - I used to be Will's girlfriend and now I'm not. What difference does that make? Marlena - Maybe I'm the wrong person to be talking to you. I seem to keep upsetting you. Gabi - Dr. Evans, I have so much respect for you and I would love for you to approve of what I'm doing but if you don't Nick and I are still just going to be fine. Marlena - Good for you. Gabi - And I care so much for Will still. He's one of my best friends. Honestly, no one has made me feel the way Nick does. I can see that he loves me as much as I love him and that's a first for me. It's not a one way street anymore.
Common Grounds - Part 2 : Will - I don't know what else to say besides I'm sorry. Sonny - It didn't enter your mind that I would eventually figure this out? I saw Gabi before you asked me for the money. She looked as sick as a dog and she tried to tell me that it was the flu. And you have Nick thinking she had an upset stomach because of something Chad said. He didn't have a clue. She didn't want him to know she was pregnant. You asked me for the money to help her get an abortion. Will - Right. Sonny - The one reason that she told you she was pregnant and no one else. It's the same reason she wanted you to take her to the abortion clinic and no one else. Will - I am so sorry. I wanted to tell you. It's been driving me insane. Sonny - I can tell. Will - I took Gabi to the abortion clinic because she said she wanted me to. Is it wrong to think that was her decision? Sonny - No, it's her decision but I have the right to know what I'm paying for. Will - Right. I'm sorry. That day was just crazy. Mom and Rafe found out what was going on and then they showed up at the abortion clinic. Before I could say anything Nick charged into the abortion clinic and Gabi changed her mind. If I could take back everything then everything would be different. Sonny - Well it's okay. I understand. Will - You do? You really understand. Sonny - I know that you and Gabi were together when I first got to Salem. You weren't ready to accept the fact that you were gay and you were up front about that. I get that. Will - I wasn't fair to her. Sonny - You must have done something right. She finds out she's pregnant, she's freaking out, she turns to you. It's because you're great to her. Will - I wouldn't say that. Sonny - And then she asks you to keep this secret even from me and you did it. I don't think less of you for that. Will - So you know everything and you still don't hate me. You are the singlemost incredible person that I have ever met. Sonny - So I guess Gabi really didn't want Nick to find out that she was pregnant, huh? Will - Yeah. Sonny - I'm glad she changed her mind. I'm not that crazy about Nick but he is the baby's father.
Brady Pub - Part 2: Eric - You know that when I decided on a life in the priesthood it's not because I wanted a cushy job. Caroline - I'm very proud of you. I just don't want you to burn yourself out trying to be everything to everybody. Eric - I'm not. Caroline - I've got say something. You're different than you were before. Eric - I'm a priest. I've grown up. I've got more responsibilites. Caroline - It's not just that. There's an uneasiness about you and it started when you came back from Africa. You must have seen some terrible things in Africa. Eric - The suffering there is unimaginable. Caroline - But you don't want to talk about it right? If you ever do want to talk about it then I'm here. And you don't have to worry about me blabbing it because I forget half the things people tell me anyway. They laugh. I better get back to the kitchen. They hug. Eric - I love you Grandma. Caroline says I know that and walks away. Eric recalls waking up from a nightmare. Nicole walks up and asks him if he's okay.
St Luke's - Part 3: Gabi - I met Nick at one of the worst times in my life. Marlena - Really. Gabi - I can't tell you about it but it was really bad. Marlena - I'm sorry. Gabi - You don't have to be. From the moment I met Nick and started to get to know him I just had this feeling that things were going to get better. Marlena - What did he do to make you feel that way? Gabi - I don't know. I guess I just always knew how he felt about me. And he also showed me that he really did love me. I didn't have to figure it out ... I kind of knew, you know what I mean? Marlena - I know exactly what you mean. I'm pleased to say that I think you're getting married for all the right reasons. You've convinced me. Gabi hugs her - Thank you so much Dr. Evans. Marlena - And that's a good thing because you and Nick are going to face some incredible obstacles. Gabi - I know but I think we're going to get through it. Marlena - I think so too. The guys knock so Marlena tells them to come in here. John - See, nothing to worry about.
HTS - Part 3: Abby - I know that Gabi isn't your favourite person in the world. Chad - It's worse than that. Abby - I wish you would just tell me why. Chad - I do too but I can't. Abby - Fine. She needed a maid of honour and Will's mom was putting the pressure on ... Chad - You don't have to explain yourself. Abby - Thank you. Chad - So this dress, is it ugly. Abby - No. Chad - Aren't bridesmaids dressed supposed to be ugly? Abby - No, I have much better taste than that except in men. Chad - Oh, so you're not going to take me up on my offer. Abby - You mean that really sweet offer to go out with you because we've both been dumped? Gee, I don't know how I could possibly turn that down. Chad - There are worse ways to spend an evening. Abby - I guess there are like doing a research paper or getting a bikini wax or reading The Canterbury Tales or getting the stomach flu; that could definitely be worse. Watching golf on TV might be worse than going out with you. Chad - Might. You said might be worse. You're running out of steam here. What if we had a good time? Abby - You and me? Chad - Come on, it's possible. Abby - Anything is possible. I should get going. Chad - Wait. I know we've been laughing but I also know life hasn't been a picnic for either one of us especially you. Abby - Yes, that is true. Chad - It's Christmas so from one friend to another how are you doing?
Common Grounds - Part 3 : Will - So what you're upset about is that you wish you had known that you were paying for Gabi's abortion. Sonny - Yeah. She had every right to make whatever choice she needed to make. I guess I was just upset because I was in the dark. I think I came down on you a little too hard. Will - No, you didn't. Sonny - I just want you to feel like you can tell me anything. Will - Trust me, I do feel like that, Sonny - Then it's okay. Gabi didn't want anyone to know she was pregnant and you respected that. No matter what I think about her I'm not going to say anything to anybody. Will - The good news is that it's over now. Nick knows everything, Gabi loves him. Sonny - So what, she was just afraid that she was going to lose him if he found out she was pregnant? Will - Yeah, that was it. Sonny - I guess she was wrong because they seem happy. Will - They are. They're getting married. I guess we don't have to talk about this anymore. Sonny - We don't. I promise. Actually I prefer we never talk about Gabi. Will - Works for me. So what are you doing for Christmas? I was thinking, if your parents don't mind, that you'd come with me to the Horton family Christmas. Sonny - I don't know if all the Horton's will be crazy about that. Will - If you're talking about my Dad this was his idea. Sonny - Get out! Will - He's starting to come around. Sonny - That's great. I just didn't know he'd go so far as wanting me around at Christmas. Will - So is that a yes? Sonny - I think my Mom would have a problem with it unless you come to my house too. Have you ever been to a Greek Christmas. Will - No but I'm looking forward to my first one. They kiss.
Brady Pub - Part 3: Eric - I didn't see you come in. You startled me but I'm fine. Nicole - Good because I kind of need you to be fine. Eric - Why? What happened? Nicole - I was shopping for presents for my kid at the parish and I couldn't help but think how this would have been the first Christmas with my baby and how I can't see Sydney. Eric - I know. That must really hurt. Nicole - And then I ran into Abigail Devereaux. Eric - How did go? Nicole - She was actually nice. It just reminded me that Jennifer and Daniel will probably be spending Christmas together. Sometimes Christmas sucks you know. Eric - I know. Nicole - I hate to tell you this Padre. You say you're fine but you look like hell. Eric - It's just that I have so much to do. What I need is a few more hours in the day. Nicole - What you need is a nap. Eric - I think you're right. He leaves.
Gabi and Nick return. Nick tells Caroline they can cover the dinner shift if she wants to go get some rest. Caroline - Where did you kids have to go? I forgot. Gabi - We started our Pre-Cana conference today. Caroline - Right! How did it go? Nick - We lucked out. We had John and Marlena to talk to. Caroline - Good. Shawn and I use to counsel young couples for a while. I'll never forget their young eager faces. And I wish I could remember where I left my keys as well. Did they counsel you about not keeping things inside when you're upset. You have to talk out a problem in order to solve it. Gabi - Yeah we know that. Will comes in. Caroline - If you're here to check on me I'm good to go. I'll see you later. Nick - I'll meet you back there in the kitchen. Gabi - Hey, is anything wrong? Will - No, I thought there was for a second there, but there's not. Nick - What do you mean? Will - I thought that Sonny found out ... Gabi - But he didn't? Will - No. Gabi - Thank God. Will - However he did put it together that I helped you get money for the abortion and that I took you to the clinic. Gabi - Did you tell him that he was wrong? Will - No. I'm not going to lie to him anymore than I have to besides he's not going to say anything. Gabi - How do you know that? Will - I just do. Gabi - No, no, no. Sonny can't stand me. What if he tells Chad?
HTS - Part 3: Chad - I remember the first Christmas after my mom died. It was the worst. Abby - Yeah. My dad used to make this big deal out of every single holiday; at least when he was around. He'd hide our Easter Egg basket so it would take us half a day to find it. And then the money we'd get from the tooth fairy, it was never just under our pillow. One year he tied it to the ceiling fan. And on Christmas every single year he would swear to us that Santa was real. JJ's on vacation with his friends this year. He can't face coming home. Chad - I'm so sorry. Abby - I'll be okay. I just feel so bad for my mom. She didn't deserve appendecitis on top of everything else. Chad - I'm not one to give advice but can I say something. You worry so much about your mom, you really need to be worried about yourself. You have this great family. You need to utilize them and let them help you get through this. Abby - I know. I would. I just don't know what they can do. Chad - I told myself if I got through the first Christmas that there would never be another one as hard as that. Abby - Was it true? Chad - Yeah. Don't get me wrong. You're always going to miss your Dad. You'll just find better ways of handling it. Abby - Just make it through the first one. That helps. Thank you.
Brady Pub - Part 4: Caroline walks up to Nicole. Excuse me, I was having tea with Eric. Do you know where he went? Nicole - No. Caroline - Okay.
St Luke's - Part 4: Eric kneels by his bed and prays. Bless me Father for I have sinned. Please help me understand, forgive me. Please help me forgive myself.
HTS - Part 4: Marlena and John are strolling though the square. John stops. Here's where we split up. Marlena - What! John - So we can do our Christmas shopping for each other. Marlena laughs. I've been talking to Gabi for so long saying that marriage is a hard thing to work it ... I guess I'm overreacting. John - I guess so. Do you think the kids are going to make it? Marlena - They're getting married for the right reasons, that's a start. John - They have a rough road ahead of them. Marlena - She's young to be having a baby. John - He's got a prison record. How the hell is he going to find a job to support a wife and child? Marlena - Did you say that to him? John - What's the point? I tell you one thing, today made me realise one thing. How lucky we are. We've been through all the big battles and I'm still more in love with you then ever before. Marlena - I am too. John - And grateful too because you listen to whatever is on my mind and I know you'll always be honest with me even if it isn't easy. Marlena - I don't know what I ever did to deserve you. John - I do. You were you. They kiss.
Common Grounds - Part 4 : Chad returns. How's everything here? Sonny - Good. Chad - I take it you worked things out with Will. Sonny smiles - I guess so. Just in time for Christmas. Chad - It's about Gabi, right? Sonny - I promised him that we wouldn't talk about it. Chad - That's what she does. She gets inbetween friends, she gets inbetween couples. Sonny - It's all good. Chad - I'm really happy for you and Will. I mean that. I just hope you know you still can't trust Gabi. Everything I told you about her is the truth. Sonny - I know that. Chad - Good.
Brady Pub - Part 5: Will - I'm telling you that you can trust Sonny. He's not going to tell anybody. He's not going to tell Chad. Gabi - I don't know how you can be so sure. Will - Because he gave me his word and I trust that. Gabi - You said that Sonny figured things out. What if Chad figures things out too? Nick - Given Sonny didn't figure out the most important part ... he still thinks I'm the father right? Will - Right. Nick - so does everybody else. John and Marlena, Will's mom, Rafe. You and I are the ones getting married. You and I are going to be the one's raising this baby together. Who's going to look at all of that and figure out the biological father is actually some gay boy. I think we all just need to calm down. I need to go help out Mrs. Brady in the kitchen. See you later. He leaves. Will - Gay boy?
St Luke's - Part 5: Eric is having a nightmare. He screams out no. When Nicole touches him he sits up quickly. Nicole - My God, what is wrong with you?

My heart goes aflutter when Nicole mentions Sydney. I keep hoping that some way, somehow Sydole will happen for real. I appreciate Chad helping Nicole out with the presents. Slowly and ever so tentatively he's growing on me.
Abby's reluctance to be Gabi's maid of honor, though understandable since they aren't terribly close, has somehow managed to make the champion of underdogs in me feel sorry for Gabi and Nick. No one in their peer group likes them or wants to be in their wedding. But Nick had to go and blurt out that "gay boy" line and...poof. Goodwill squelched.

||I :wub: chad and Nicole's entire convo. It was natural, honest and sweet. I will take anything that gives me Sydole.|

|Aww Sydole. :wub:|

||Other than the fact that they are both played by Blake Berris, this Nick might as well be a completely different character than 2006-09 Nick. I don't even think his prison stint is an adequate explanation for the complete personality transplant that the character has received. Why must TPTB keep bringing back fan favorites only to ruin them?|

||Abby and Gabi are friends, why is everything turning out badly for them? I like Nabi, but this stupid storyline and Nick's homophobia is making it boring for me.|
|gailwinters||Dec 20 2012, 04:10 PM Post #12|
||Chad, you just got played by one of the best. Nicole had him eating out of the palm of her hand every step of the way. She needs to give it up - Sydney is NOT her child. Chad should not be enabling her obsession.|
|Daysdegrassi||Dec 20 2012, 04:12 PM Post #13|
||I'm glad Abby thanked Nicole, I just wish her mom would as well. This episode was alright, I might watch it. But I don't get why Sonny said he doesn't really care for Nick? I can see him saying that when he discovers Nick hates gays, but since Sonny doesn't know that yet, doesn't really make sense. Will and Nick is getting good!|
|Tammy||Dec 20 2012, 06:14 PM Post #14|
I wasn't all gaga over Nick before... but this version of Nick is a asshole. This whole pre-cana meeting is sounding all kinds of weird!

It is reasonable that Chad and Abby would feel sorry for Nicole because of the recent loss of her full term baby and why Chad might understand how Nicole under the circumstances might get some comfort from being able to reach out to Sydney,the only child with which she has had a full parental relationship.I really don't see this as Nicole playing Chad,I see it as an admission by Nicole that she misses her relationship with someone important to her and a thougthful gesture by Chad during the holiday season.
|Deleted User||Dec 20 2012, 06:49 PM Post #16|
I for one may actually start liking Chad just for this act alone, especially considering she did just lose a second child. Being nasty to someone after experiencing such a loss would do more harm then good.
|concerned||Dec 20 2012, 06:57 PM Post #17|
Ok first we have EJ donating gifts to the needy, now Nicole has adopted a family to give gifts to.
While their actions are both admirable we already have enough saintly Hortons and Bradys. Please someone give them a cocktail.
|gailwinters||Dec 20 2012, 07:11 PM Post #18|
I didn't say he should be nasty to her. I said he shouldn't feed her obsession with a child who doesn't belong to her. Chad recognized immediately that she had an agenda when she said hello to him, it's just that Nicole plays the victim so well that she was still able to get him to do what she wanted and make him think it was his idea.
|annie21||Dec 20 2012, 07:38 PM Post #19|
I actually don't agree with this because while I think the father should support the child, marrying the mother just because she's pregnant too often just compounds the error.
That aside, this assertion did make me wonder whether we're going to get a situation down the road where Will decides to marry Gabi in order to ensure custody or something. Hmmm.
