THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Talk about starting the day off. Right. Hi, happy New, receive. Happy, happy Wedding Day. I can’t believe he’s finally here. Oh, nothing’s getting our way now. Absolutely nothing.
Gabby, you could not marry this man. What the hell? Johnny and Mun, they told me everything. They did not go to Jakarta on some romantic getaway. No. They went to find wolf in search of the truth. Brain washed me, Gabby, to make me forget about my love for you. And Dr. Wolf was only following orders his
I smell a rat. Dang, that’s harsh. All I smell bell peppers, not the food. You promise you wouldn’t go to any trouble for me today. Oh, yeah, I lied. See, here’s the thing. This is your special day and is your brother. I’m obliged to treat you like a queen, but don’t get used to it. . All right, well, you know what?
In that case, What? Is it bad? No, it’s amazing. It’s, no, it’s very rich though. It’s cheesy and buttery. That’s what makes it amazing. Yeah. I’m fattening. How am I supposed to get into my wedding dress after this meal? Okay, fine. If it bothers you that much. No, no, no, no, no, no. Don’t be so harsh. Bring it back.
Okay. Well, ho, hold on. I’m saying that you’re not worried about bust outta your dress. No. What’s your groom gonna say? Trust me. The man of my dreams loves me the way I am unconditionally.
So no complaints, huh? About me tagging along. I’m not tagging along. Yeah. On your Christmas visit with your mom, are you kidding me? This has been a trip of a lifetime. Yeah. It’s been pretty great for me too. And we haven’t even made it to Miami yet to ring in the new year. Mm-hmm. Which I would be really excited for.
Except I’m feeling a little bit guilty By what? Well, it is Gabby’s wedding day. I’m depriving you of the chance to be there when the justice of the peace asks if anyone objects. You kidding me? If I were there, I would be cheering at the top of my lungs throwing confetti. Those two deserve each other.
So what do you think? I think that. I, I think that I have excellent taste. . Yes, you do. It was actually my favorite Christmas present. Yeah. Yeah. In fact, I plan on wearing it during my brother’s wedding tonight. You don’t think that might, uh, I don’t know. Clash with your. Made of honor dress. Oh, it definitely will
But when I start to feel guilty about keeping these secrets, you can use it to G me and keep me quiet. Oh yeah. Every single one of them, Rachel. Yes, I know Every single new video gave me. You got a promise will play as soon as we see each other. Okay? Yeah. Hey, I’m. I love you. Okay. Bye baby. Is it Rachel?
Yeah. We had the best Christmas. It was great. Almost made me forget about this hall that Christens been putting me through. I already, you can’t forget that. You shouldn’t. The holidays are passed. Now it’s time to put that plan into. Right kid. My own daughter. Listen, it’s the only way we can force Kris’s hand.
I, I, I un, I understood. We just have to make sure that we find the right time to do it tonight. It has to be tonight.
Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Brady plans to Rachel out the town hall. We have to make him believe that we going on an adventure. Right. And since Kristen will be tied up at Gabby and Lee’s reception, it should be the perfect diversion, I guess. Exactly. But we can’t waste another minute if we’re gonna be, Chris had our own game.
Lee, it’s me. Kristen? Yes.
This is a bad time. Kristen. Oh, I’m sorry. Did I wake you? No. Okay. Whatever. What are you doing? Well I came because it’s your wedding day and uh, although our little alliance has hit some rough patches mm-hmm. , it’s paying them beautifully and I just want to wish you good luck. Thanks. I’m gonna need it.
Patience. No. Can you? None to spare. I’ve been wasting it up. Waiting for my wedding. You. Lee and I, we slept apart last night. Some a sickler for traditions. Oh yeah. You’ve been saving yourself for your wedding, huh? All right, let’s not get too crazy. Although I shouldn’t be impatient in a couple hours, I’m gonna be in front of the justice of the peace, marrying the man that I love.
Ha. What, what? What’s the look? I just hope that Lian is the man that you love.
Not that warrants mentioning, but I am glad that we got outta Salem for the holidays. Does it have anything to do with a certain wedding? Neither one of us wanna attend. That might be part. Hmm. Firstly, I could care less about that wedding. And who’s going or not going? I’m enjoying the memory of Amal and the night visitors.
Hmm. The holiday, classic and strange loop. What an amazing show. Yeah. Your mom and your sister enjoyed it too. Yeah, they did. Stephan, thank you for everything. No, you’ve, you’ve treated us like royalty. And I intend to show you how grateful I am once we get to Miami. Really, something to look forward to.
Dam it. Do what? I just realized that I promised your mom I would pick up locks and bagels from Zbars. I better get going. I could come with you. You stay here. Relax. All right. Zbars is right down the street. It won’t take long. Are you sure? I’m sure.
Good morning, mother. Good morning, daughter. Where’s s Stephan? Uh, he wanted to treat us to some breakfast before we leave. Mm-hmm. Don’t remind me I’m already missing you guys. I know. But we’ll be back to visit. Yes, and Mike and I can come to Salem to visit since we both have family there. You two seem really happy together.
We are, and so are Stephan and I, as you can clearly see. He’s a great guy, isn’t he? Well, he is extremely generous. I am. I just, I just wonder if, oh, nevermind. You can say it, mom. You know what? Actually don’t say it. I know that you were pulling for Brady and me hoping we were the real deal, and you don’t think I’m over him.
Am. Well, are you?
Yes, I’m over Brady. Why wouldn’t I be? He’s moved on with Kristen and I’ve moved on too with a wonderful guy. I mean, come on mom. Haven’t you noticed I’ve been on Cloud nine this entire. . Yes. But you were on Cloud nine with Brady not so long ago, and that’s over now. Did you not get the memo? We split up, yes.
And after you did, you rebounded and landed with Stephan so fast? It really has not been that fast. We’re we’re getting to know each other again. We’re we’re taking things slowly, meaning. meaning I don’t wanna have this discussion with my mother, . So you haven’t slept together yet, mom. Well, maybe there’s a reason for that, a reason that you haven’t done that.
Chloe, yes. Brady hurt you, but Stefan, back in the day, honey, he cheated on you with Gabby, and then he treated you. That’s in the past. I’m, I’m focused on the, right now, the present. And when it comes to Brady and Stephan, the choice is clear. I mean, I understand Brady putting his daughter first, but he didn’t waste one minute moving Kristen in with him.
Chloe, wait. I’m not excusing Brady’s behavior. I just, I know. I know, I know. Okay, mom, I know that you thought that we were meant to be. I get it. And I thought that too. For a while, but I just don’t. I don’t anymore.
Now, this is not gonna be a cakewalk. The wedding may be a good diversion, but Rachel had plans. I mean, my dad and Marlene were gonna babysit her lead did around that. What we need to do is make sure that Christo Doesn. Bail out on the wedding and go home early before we make this happen. I can steal her car keys.
That’s a good idea, but I got a better one. You’re not gonna like it. Tell me you’re kidding. You know I’m not. You want me to take Kristen to the wedding as my date? It’s perfect how he said it’s perfect for you, not for me, because I’m gonna have to deal with her. I know it sounds crazy, but you imagine you showing up with sh Devil on your arm and I kidnap the thing that she loves the most.
Her daughter. It can’t.
Why are you needing luck tonight? You getting cold feet, really cold sweats. I had a bad dream oh one. That’s making you nervous about your wedding. Let’s forget about it. Thanks for stopping by. Was Stephan in your dream? How’d you guess ? Well, When I walked through that door, I noticed guilt all over your face.
It’s not guilt. All right, well, are you afraid of getting caught? I mean, dreamer, no dream. What makes you think this stuff’s gonna find out what you did? I’m certainly not gonna tell it. Oh, don’t worry. I am reporting for standby duty ready to gag you at a moment’s notice, but only if you promise to do the same for.
deal. Look. Yeah. We’ve kept what we found out in. Jakarta to ourselves for this long, that’s gotta count for something, right? Does. But unlike you, I’m actually in the wedding. Yeah, I have to stand next to Gabby while my brother promises to love, honor, and cherish her. Knowing full well he broke that vow before he even got to the ceremony.
Part of me thinks the only way to keep this secret is to suddenly, you know, come down with something, skip the wedding altogether.
Wow. on my wedding day. No less. What I am. Your big. It is my job to ask the important questions. Is it also your job to be a buzzkill? Are, are you seriously questioning my feelings for Lee now? If you are head over heels when you say I do, then we’re all good. What do you mean if, well, I remember how head over heels you were for Stephan before he died.
Yeah. And that’s why I was so hurt when Stephan came back to town and started treating me like something on the bottom of his shoe. And I’m not saying that he and I would’ve gotten together. I mean, Lee and I were already in love, but there was never a choice for me to make. And, and with Stephan’s rejection, he’s obviously just proven to me that the what?
That even before he got shot, everything was a lie. And that he never really loved me.
I, uh, hope we’re past the hood. Do you really love portion of the wedding day? Does sound like a good idea for a game show though? Mm. Yeah. You know, you, you could be the dashing mc. Think of how many more weddings you could ruin . Wow. Don’t need to get snippy. Hmm. You know, being your big brother isn’t as easy as it looks, but you’re great.
Mm. Most of the time, I mean, you could level the playing field and start dating again. Then I could give you grief too. Well, I am actually enjoying my bachelor’s status. Mm. Are you? Mm-hmm. . Well, I happen to have detected a little something between you and Jada at Christmas. Hmm. That was either your imagination or the eggnog.
Well, you did drink a lot of it, so you must be right. Mm-hmm. Jada is a coworker and ze. And even if I had interest, which I don’t, HR has a huge book of rules about dating your subordinates. She’s off limits. Rules don’t apply when it comes to true love. Well, good thing it isn’t there. No, I know. I’m just saying, why don’t you invite her to the wedding?
I know you want to. Have you not listened to anything that I’ve just said? Well, you never listened to anything I say, so let’s just call it even. Hey, seriously, listen, I’m gonna invite her. If you don’t do it, I’m gonna do it. Mm-hmm. ? Mm-hmm. ? Mm-hmm. . Jah. I didn’t hear you come in that much was obvious. I never see you anymore, so I just assume that you’ve been avoiding me.
I promise. No, no, that, that would be childish. Um, you’re just hoping that you would never run into me again.
Well, when I ran into Kristen and Rachel on Christmas, Rachel did happen to mention that her mom and Brady are not sleeping in the same room. So maybe things haven’t taken off yet, but it’s only a matter of time. But maybe that means that there’s still a chance for you and Brady sweetheart. Oh my God, mom, do you need to see an eye doctor or something?
Or are you just in some weird denial about how close Stephan and I have become when you saw it? Everything from the opera to Broadway and ice skating at 30 Rock and him taking us to the best restaurants in New York. We’ve had an amazing time. Okay. Okay. So you’re madly in love. I didn’t say that. So you’re not in love, mom.
What I’m saying is that we’re taking the time to make things right, but this is right. That’s what I’m trying to tell you. That fate has stepped in. I’m given Stephen and me another chance. No, I don’t think Stefan will find out. Well, what about your. dreams don’t always follow logic. I mean, that’s certainly true.
Oh, and I don’t, I don’t mean to put you on the spot on your wedding day. In fact, I should express my profound gratitude. See, thanks to you, Chloe is an afterthought to me and to Brady. I mean, , it’s a actually a relief. Why a relief? You were skeptical it would all work. All right. I confess when you told me about your sister going to Jakarta to look for Wolf, uh, I thought everything was gonna implode, but, uh, obviously Wendy and Johnny didn’t find out the truth.
I know why you’d assumed that giving my impending nuptials to Stephan’s ex in a few hours, but brace yourself.
Brace myself for what?
Johnny and Wendy know everything.
Hi. No, no, no, no, no. Not You are not calling Jada. Come. What? What are you gonna do? You’re gonna haul me to the police station on my wedding day. I will . I will. I’m not kidding. I will. It is not your place to invite Jada to your wedding as my date. Fine. Okay, fine. Just thought it’d be nice for you to have someone to talk to and it’d be nice to not spend my wedding day worried about my wallflower brother being bored.
Wow. That. Oh, would you look at that? I don’t have any more time to continue this conversation unfortunately, cuz I have to get to work party pooper. I meant what I said though about before, you know, I just want you to be happy. I know. And grief what you need to know is that that’s the reason I’m marrying Lee, cuz he makes me.
And why aren’t you as alarmed as I am? If Johnny and Wendy know our secret, they won’t default it to anyone I just talked to. Why won’t they diviv it? What did you ask them? Politely not. Because Wendy is my sister and she’s extremely loyal to me. Oh, and Johnny. Johnny has his own reasons for keeping quiet.
Ejs still grieving, and Johnny doesn’t wanna make things worse for him. Okay. Oh hell, you are right? I know. I am. Well, it’s been dodged now, I don’t know. Mm-hmm. It seems there’s a lot riding on those two kids. Stay in the course, and especially for you. Do you know me? I can handle that if it becomes public, but you, that is a different story.
I’m confident Johnny and Wendy will stay the course as you put it. Great. I hope your confidence is justified. See, at the wedding,
skip the wedding. You can’t be serious. W why not? , you and I could have some fun of our own . Yeah. Well, don’t you think that not showing up to the wedding would just raise even more questions? Yeah. Suppose it’s just look, the guilt. All right, I get it. Trust me. But you’ve gotta fight it. Okay,
And now. It’s time for me to get over to Gabby’s. Just start with the maid of honor duty. Oh, that’ll be fun.
look. I’m sorry.
Hey, look, maybe, maybe the only way to justify keeping this secret is to realize that coming clean is just swapping out one form of guilt for another. Yeah, I know if I break my promise to my brother, I’ll ruin his life and you’ll have the rest of your life to live with it.
That was close. Are you okay?
I don’t blame Jada for being bitter, but we need to focus. Alright? As much as I’m not looking forward to this, I know what I need to do and I need to relieve John and my lady in front of the babysitting so they don’t realize what we’re doing. Okay? Let’s say wish me luck, but I think you’re gonna need it too.
Also, good luck to both of us. Alright.
Can we talk? I thought we just did. I mean, really talk.
I just want you to know that I haven’t been avoiding you. I just haven’t been staying here. Since you got outta jail, you heard I did. And I also heard that your lawyer is a, a full service attorney.
Look, I don’t care. You live your life. I’ll live mine, but I know why you got arrested and I’m not interested in being the reason why you’re spinning out.
I’m not spinning out and you’re not the reason why I got arrested the last few weeks that have been a, a struggle for me. But I would like to find a way to get past that and for us to be friends again. Do you think that’s possible? That’s how we started, isn’t it? I mean, we had enough in common to like each other.
Things have changed. Yeah, they have. You’re right. We’ll never see eye to eye in the pregnancy, but that wasn’t the real issue between us. No. Well, in your opinion, what was, was my getting involved with you? When I had unresolved feelings for Nicole, and I know she was with ra, and I just thought, what time that I could handle it and I didn’t.
And I’m sorry. I owe you an apology for not being honest with you or myself from the very beginning.
Thank you for saying that. And as far as us being friends, I, I’m gonna need some time. Okay. I can wait. Well, I’m, I’m glad we talked and, and I’m sorry for being so hard on you before.
Um, I gotta get to the station now. I’ll see you soon. Yeah, I’ll see you soon. And in the meantime, Try to stay outta jail, huh,
sweetheart, I’m so sorry. I’m, I’m really not trying to put you on the spot and yet that’s exactly what you’re doing. You know, I guess it’s just because it’s New Year’s Eve and I was thinking about my favorite. , which is Oh, when Harry met Sally. Oh, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. They’re on the outs and then while they decide to get back together.
Oh, in the cutest sexiest way. It’s just, and they live happily ever after. Mom, my life is not a. But sweetheart, it could be. I mean, think about it, you can, you could fly home to Salem and meet up with Brady just, just before the clock strikes 12 and oh, just think how romantic that would be. So when I miss.
You’re here . Hope I’m not late. Oh, you’re right on time. I’m so excited. This is gonna be so much fun. , I can’t breathe. I’m sorry. I’m just so excited, aren’t you? Yeah, no idea.
Anything new on that kidnapping case? Uh, not since we went over it together on Christmas morning, which reminds me, uh, it was very generous of you to give me a place to go that day. Well, I’m glad you came. Gabby likes you a lot. Oh, and I like her. She’s smart, funny, kinda like her big.
So today is the big day, right? Gabby’s New Year’s Eve wedding, it sounds like it’s gonna be a blast. Yeah, it’s gonna be great. , would you wanna come? You mean with you?
Hey, you did not miss a thing. Mom and I were just talking about New Year’s. Ah, speaking of which, Zbars was a mad house and it took longer to get the bagels than anticipated. So we’re not gonna have time to indulge if we’re gonna make our flight to Miami to celebrate. Okay, then let’s start packing. Let’s do it.
I’ll get in Harold.
Lee, if you’re, if you’re looking for my father, he is not around. Actually, I came to see you. I’m gonna see you tonight, but the wedding couldn’t wait. Unfortunately not, you see, I came to double check. There will still be a tonight at the wedding.
Yeah. Can you confirm that number with me one more time? Oh, oh my God. Let me call you back. I’m, I’m sorry. I got distracts distracted. I didn’t see. Okay. I was trying to make sure that Gabby and Lee’s wedding gift was delivered on time. Hey, it’s. Um, you can bump into me anytime,
Hey, uh, I don’t know why this didn’t occur to me before, but you and I are gonna be leaving the townhouse at the same time for the wedding, and it’s kind of silly for us to go separately. Uh, excuse me. Are you asking me to go with you? Don’t you want to? Well, I do. I do. It’s just, I can’t figure out why you’re asking me.
What , I kind of wanted to beat you to the punch. Kristen, honestly figured with your access to the orchid, you would probably force me to go somehow. So I guess I just wanted to do it on my own terms. Hmm. I hadn’t thought of that. Hmm. Look, Kristen, do you want to go with me or not? . Very, very much. Okay, great.
We’ll go. Okay. We should bring Rachel. Oh, she would love to have an outing together with her family that I’m gonna give her a call.
Well, we could show up together. Sure. And what I meant when I asked you was, since you and Gabby hit it off. I thought if you wanted to go, you could, you know, you could be there. You could congratulate her in person. Thanks. But I’m, I’m not a party crasher. No, no, no, no, no. You, you wouldn’t be. There’s always room for one more besides I have an in with the bride, well, let me put it that way.
How could I say no? Okay.
The guy already gave you my reassurance that I’m not gonna tell anybody what you did to Stephan. Do you? You doubt my sincerity. When we first spoke, this knowledge was new to you as were your reasons for keeping silent. See, you’re concerned that what I, I changed my mind. I’m just covering my bases.
Simple as that. I, I have a promise from Wendy, and it would keep me from sweating for my tugs if I hide yours too. Yeah. You know, you’re a pretty crappy brother. Wendy’s tied up in knots because of her loyalty to you. How dare you speak to me that way. I’m a good brother to Wendy. Yeah. Yeah. Just like you’re gonna be a good husband to Gabby, right.
Starting off the marriage with a lie, which by the. They’ve got their way of coming to the surface, so you might as well just level with her. Now, take your chances. I can’t do that. Hey, it’s your call, but I have a feeling you’re gonna live to regret it.
Hey, we’ll see you tonight. Wendy and I just can’t wait.
now. This is how you get a wedding. De started.
What is it? I was just stinging.
About how incredibly happy you look. It’s because I am starting tonight. Your brother and I will finally be officially together, . Then I’m going to do my very best to help make this a day. You remember? The rest of your life.
Oh, well this has been great fun, but last we must say our goodbyes. Oh, how I wish you two could stay. We’ll be back soon. Yes. Thank you for putting us. Oh no. I should be thanking you for all the wonderful nights out on the town. No, what can I say? Just trying to impress my new girlfriend. Well, you definitely succeeded.
Um, I love you. Say goodbye to Mike. I must,
this is what I want. I’m over Brady. I really am if you say so.
I love you and I love you. Happy New Year. Be safe,
Chris. Christopher. Why not? Don’t think about it. Think. The wedding is at night. Mm-hmm. , it’s New Year’s Eve. The reception is probably gonna go to the wee hours in the morning. Oh, you know what? I hadn’t thought of that. Uh, yeah, I mean, it’s too late for Rachel. Oh, you’re right, you’re right. Okay. And dad, Marlena, they’re already set to babysitter and so we should just stick to that plan and maybe the two of us would have a little bit more fun alone anyway.
Huh? Maybe. We’ll, hm. So it’s just gonna be you and me. New me, shall we? Three Shall
mom. Hey, uh, listen, I know you and John, you’re watching Rachel tonight, but see, I don’t have any plans tonight and there’s no reason why you two should not be going out and having some fun. No, I, I mean it, I really like to watch Rachel . Of course. I will let Kristen and Brady know. Great. Alright. I can’t tell you how much I’m really looking forward to spending some time with my niece.
Love you too.
