Sally: [ Exhales sharply ]

Nick: You okay?

Sally: Sure. I haven’t opened it yet.

Nick: You said you were going crazy waiting.

Sally: Yeah, I-I…

[ Sighs ] It just… it was so fast. I didn’t think the paternity test results were going to be until tomorrow, and now they’re here, and I’m just… I’m not ready.

Nick: Sally, this is a good thing. Trust me, all this anxiety you’re feeling will go away. There won’t be any more what-ifs, any more questions. You’ll have all the answers you need.

Sharon: Aww, well, that sounds like a very exciting valentine’s day, faith. You know, even mariah and tessa didn’t go all out this year because so much of their focus is on delphine. Yes, she is the potential birth mother, and she could give birth any moment now. Well, they’ve decided to focus on the positive and not worry about the birth mother having a change of heart. Well, I hope that you can come home for a bit when they bring the baby back here. Yeah, they are about to discover how much a baby can change your life.

Sally: Yeah, I-I get what you’re saying. It’ll be good to have some certainty in the whole uncertain process, but I’m just nervous.

Nick: Yeah. Listen, no matter what happens, it’s going to be okay. I’ll be here for you no matter what.

Sally: Thank you. I know I can always count on you.

Nick: Yeah. Okay, so, are you ready to get the results?

Sally: Yeah, I just have to open the file. I just really don’t want to do it here in public. I don’t trust my reaction. I’d rather just go back to my place, sit down, and just read the thing.

Nick: Yeah, I-I get it. Good idea. I’ll — I’ll get the food, and we’ll get out of herE.

Sally: Wait, wait. Can we just — can we just sit for one more minute and be normal? Just for a little while longer.

Nick: Look, I understand the instinct to want to keep things the same, but, sally, you wanted to know the baby’s paternity to alleviate any anxiety. It’s going to be okay. This is one small step in a lifelong journey.

Sally: I don’t know. I just want to stay in the not-knowing just for a little longer. You know, I just want to mentally prepare for either outcome.

Sharon: Nick, I just got a text from mariah and tessa.

Nick: Oh, what’s happening?

Sharon: Delphine is going into labor, and it’s not braxton hicks. This is the real deal. They are about to be moms any minute. Isn’t that wonderful news?

Nick: It is. We are thrilled for them — and for you. Make sure you keep me updated, okay?

Sharon: Yeah, I will. They’ve just wanted to be parents for so long, and now it’s finally here. I will definitely keep you in the loop, and — oh, that’s faith texting me back. I accidentally hung up on her when I got the message. Excuse me. Faith, hi. I’m sorry about that, but I have good news.

Nick: Did all that baby talk unnerve you?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah. It’s just a reminder of what’s to come. You know, 10 hours of labor or more. But, you know, I don’t have the same circle of support that mariah and tessa have, so…

Nick: That’s not true. You have me — and chloe.

Sally: It’s just hard to make a circle of support of two people. And I really highly doubt your family will be lining up to throw me a baby shower.

Nick: Yeah. What about your family or your sister?

Sally: I haven’t talked to coco in a while, and even though I’m close with my grams, I haven’t told her what’s going on. I just — I haven’t been ready to face all their questions.

Nick: That’s another reason why it’s time to find out some answers.

[ Door buzzes ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Nick: [ Sighs ] You, uh… you got to try and relax. I know it’s tough, but take as much time as you need, and you do it when you’re ready.

Sally: Thank you.

Nick: Are you, uh, hungry? Do you want any of this food?

Sally: Not right now.

Nick: Okay. How about, uh, some music, maybe something soothing?

Sally: Sure.

Nick: Hey, come here. Come sit down. You are making yourself so tense.

Sally: It’s a really tense situation.

Nick: I know. I know. But I told you, everything’s going to be okay. Alright? So just close your eyes. Take a deep breath.

Sally: [ Inhales deeply ]

[ Exhales slowly ]

[ Inhales deeply ]

[ Exhales slowly ] Okay. I’m ready.

Nick: Yeah?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, let’s do this.

Nick: Alright.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] Yeah, okay. Alright, I’m going to log in to my account.

Nick: You remember the password?

Sally: Yeah, “the future.”

Nick: “Future” is appropriate.

[ Chuckles ] There’s 0% possibility that nick newman is the father.

Sally: I-I — I don’t know what that means.

Nick: It means adam’s the father.

Sally: Yeah. [ Sighs ] It just doesn’t make sense.

Nick: It’s right there, sally, in black and white. It’s going to be fine.

Sally: Well, then there’s — there’s no more stalling. I have to tell adam… now.

[ Cellphone vibrating ]

Adam: Oh, this is just what I need right now.

Victor: We need to talk, son.

Adam: I have to take this. Sally? Are you there, sally?

Sally: I need to see you. Where are you? Are you free?

Adam: Right now?

Sally: If that’s possible.

Adam: Uh, yeah. Uh, yeah, for you, uh, definitely. I’m — I’m — I’m at society.

Victor: Son, we need to talk.

Sally: Is that victor? It sounds like a bad time.

Adam: No, it’s — it’s fine. Just, uh — just come here. I’ll be the one at the end of the bar.

Sally: Would you mind meeting me at my room at the grand phoenix?

Adam: What’s going on?

Sally: I would rather not tell you over the phone. I will be here.

Adam: Alright, I’m on my way. I’m sorry. Uh, I have to run.

Victor: Son, desperation does not become you.

Adam: What makes you think I’m desperate?

Victor: Son, you’re leaving everything at the drop of the hat just because a woman called. Have some self-respect, man.

Adam: Okay, we can talk all about respect later. Right now, sally comes first.

Sally: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Sighs ] Adam will be here any minute.

Nick: Yeah, I’d, uh, like to stay.

Sally: Uh… no, I-I think your presence will just agitate adam.

[ Sighs ]

Nick: I think he’s going to be freaked out no matter what, sally. And I want to be here — not for any territorial reasons. I just… I want to be here for you.

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: What is — what is this? Hey baby, it’s us huggies.

Nick: Why don’t you come in?

Adam: Didn’t realize when i was being summoned that this was going to be a group event. So what’s going on?

Sally: [ Sighs ] I have some news that I need to share with you.

Adam: Come on. I already know that you guys are a couple. I don’t need a formal proclamation. And if you’re engaged, i really — I-I don’t need to know that information, okay?

Nick: Just hear her out.

Adam: Don’t tell me what to do.

Sally: Okay, stop. Stop. I’m pregnant.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Was this your idea, nick? Show me what a big man you are? You invite me here, “hey, I knocked up your ex.”

Sally: Nick is not the father. You are.

Adam: It’s a bab– it’s — it’s our baby? I’M… how are you? Are you okay? Have you gone to the doctor? Is everything okay?

Sally: Yes, everything is fine. I’m fine. The baby is fine. They’re just monitoring my blood pressure, but that’s normal.

Adam: Oh, I mean, what’s wrong with it? Is it too high, or is it too low?

Sally: Okay, it’s nothing you need to worry about, okay? I have it all under control. I’ve been doing all of the right things.

Adam: I — I don’t doubt that. Of course, you would put the baby’s health above everything else.

Nick: Dr. Chandler is the best. She’s been looking out for both of them. I’ve been to a few of the appointments for support.

Adam: Of course you did.

Sally: This is the last thing that I wanted was to be caught between two brothers.

Adam: Okay, look, um, I would really like to talk to you about this — alone. Can you give us that, nick?

Nick: Whatever sally wants.

Sally: I just — I really need some air.

[ Sighs, sniffles ] Would you care to join me?

[ Door opens ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: So, how are you feeling? I mean, really.

Sally: A little scared.

Adam: Well, that’s — that’s understandable.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Well, you, uh — you look great. You know, you have that, uh — that glow.

Sally: Yeah, well, I was pretty sick in the beginning. I wasn’t exactly glowing. But, um, I’m better now.

Adam: I’m sorry that you had to go through that. Glad that nick was there to help.

Sally: Are you really?

Adam: Well, um…I’m glad that somebody was there, not that it was him. But now you — you have me to lean on. Uh… so how long — how long have you known about this?

Sally: Since new year’S.

[ Sighs ] But I wasn’t sure.

[ Sniffles ]

Adam: And you’re certain that it’s mine because…?

Sally: I got a dna test, and I compared the baby’s dna with a sample from nick.

Adam: And if it wasn’t mine, would you have told me that there was a possibility that it was? Diabetes can serve up a lot of questions,

Sally: [ Sighs ] I really don’t want to get into hypotheticals.

Adam: Boy or girl? Have they told you?

Sally: Not yet. Just the paternity.

Adam: Well, if it’s a girl, um, I hope she has your beauty and intelligence and passion.

Sally: And what do you hope she gets from you?

Adam: My sardonic wit.

Sally: God, I hope not.

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: And my chin. You know, I have — I have a good, strong chin.

Sally: You do.

Adam: Oh, a daughter. Wow, I would — I want to build her things, you know?

Sally: Like what? A dollhouse?

Adam: Tree house, maybe. You know, make it — make it huge. Like an aircraft carrier and just deck it out with levers and pulleys. Really elaborate, you know?

Sally: [ Chuckles ] That’s so funny. I-I always wanted a tree house as a kid. You know, a place to call my own. But we were always on the road when I was little. It’s actually really nice to think of raising a kid in one place.

Adam: Well, I would make sure that you two have the perfect home. Plenty of room. And connor would love to have a sister.

Sally: Wait, what if it’s a boy?

Adam: A boy? Sure. Sure. Connor would love to have a little brother that he could boss around. Another son. Me and my boys. I’d like that. That sounds good.

Sally: I really like seeing you like this. That’s how you were when we first got together.

Adam: I’m always like this. You know, sometimes you just have to look a little harder. But it’s always me. I’m right here. And, sally, I will always be right here for you. Okay, I know that I’ve asked you this, and I’m going to ask you again for everything that it means to our child. Marry me.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: Sally. Look. I am sorry if all of this seems abrupt. You– you’ve had weeks to live with this news. I’m just discovering it for the first time. So my mind is racing, but my heart is steady. I know what’s right, and I know what I want.

Sally: Which is?

Adam: [ Sighing ] I don’t really believe in destiny or — or fate or any of those old ideas, but you and I, our paths, they keep crossing, our lives, they’re — they’re intertwined. A-a-and now that connection isn’t temporary. We’re permanently joined through this child. I have never loved anyone the way that I have loved you, I’ve never known anyone who is like you. I mean, you understand me, and I understand you. And I blew it. I hurt you. And I’ve wished over and over again that I could take that back and I could have a do-over. Okay, that last night that we were together, it was heartbreaking. I think we both could feel the pain of what I had broken. But look what came of it — a new life. That feels like destiny. Like our destiny, to be a family like neither one of us had growing up, one that’s not broken. I can’t undo the pain that I have caused you. But I hope you can see now that we are meant to be. And that night that we thought was the end was just the beginning.

Sally: [ Sighs ] This was a mistake. We can’t be here.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Nick and sharon chuckle ] I thought you were back at the hotel.

Nick: Yeah, I just wanted to stretch my legs, so I came back to get another cup of coffee. How did it go? Are you okay?

Sharon: You do seem flustered.

Nick: Do you want to sit down?

Sally: I’m fine.

Sharon: Why don’t you sit down? I’ll go get some water.

Nick: What’s going on?

Adam: What is going on?

Nick: I’m just trying to convince her to sit down and get some rest.

Adam: What — what is this?

Nick: What is what, adam? We’re together. This news doesn’t change anything.

Adam: No, no, this changes everything. Are you — are you really telling me you don’t care that the baby is mine?

Nick: I don’t care at all, alright, and you need to understand that. It’s like I love christian as much as I love my other kids.

Adam: When — when I allowed you to raise christian, I was in a different point in my life. This is my baby with sally, and I’m not just going to sit on the sidelines, okay? I will be damned if you think that I’m just going to step aside.

Nick: Nobody’s asking you to step aside, but we’re together. You’re not going to use this baby to try and get her back.

Adam: This is how it started with sage and christian.

Nick: No, it didn’T. You are misremembering the situation to make yourself out as a victim yet again. Oh, poor adam.

Sharon: Okay, why don’t we all come down?

Adam: I just want to be a father to this child, and you will not stop me.

Nick: Nobody’s trying to stop you.

Adam: This is what they’re going to do, sally. They will try to take your baby. A newman heir.

Sally: Who’s “they”?

Adam: Nick and my father. My father. He hates you. He hates the idea of you. He compiled a dossier with every mistake that you have ever made.

Sharon: Okay, adam, this really isn’t necessary.

Adam: Okay, they’re going to take your baby, and they’re going to give it to the golden boy, nick, just like they did with christian.

Nick: That’s enough. That’s enough.

Adam: It’s true. He took my son, he took my life, and he’s going to take our baby.

Nick: That is not going to happen. But she is the mother of this baby, and we are together.

Adam: Oh, my god. Because of a mistake that i made. You took the woman that I love. You have a job at newman that you don’t even want. You have christian, but you’re not going to take this baby. If you don’t want to be with me, you can stay with nick, but you will not take my child.

[ Heart beating ]

Ever notice how stiff clothes can feel rough on your skin?

“The young and the restless”

will continue. When you buy appliances from the home depot…

Nick: Sally. Everything’s going to be okay, alright? So just close your eyes. Take a deep breath.

Sally: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Inhales ]

[ Exhales slowly ] Okay. I’m ready.

Nick: Yeah?

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, let’s do this.

Nick: Alright.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] Okay. I’m just logging in to my account.

Nick: You remember your password?

Sally: [ Sighs ] “The future.”

Nick: “The future.” It’s appropriate.

Sally: There’s a 99.9% possibility that nick newman is the father.

Nick: Let’s go.

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Oh, thank god.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Chuckles ]

Nick: Let’s go celebrate. Are you feeling better? The morning sickness is alright?

Sally: Yeah, right now.

Nick: Then celebratory lunch. No champagne for you, though.

Sally: Yeah, I’m starving. I have been too stressed out to even think about food, so —

Nick: Well, you’re eating for two now, so let’s go. Hey. We’re going to be parents.

Adam: You know where I stand. If you really want me back, give me victoria’s job. Otherwise, there’s nothing to discuss.

Victor: Son, you’re being unreasonable.

Sally: Um… why don’t we go somewhere else? ‘Cause I would rather not to either of them.

Nick: Normally, I would agree with you, but I don’t want to let them ruin our mood. In fact, I think we should just rip the bandage off and tell them right now.

Sally: I don’t know. I feel like we should just revel in this by ourselves for longer.

Nick: Yeah, but then you’re going to be worried about how we’re going to break the news. Let’s just get it over with. Trust me.

Sally: Alright, let’s do this.

Victor: Son, you don’t even have a plan.

Sally: Excuse me.

Adam: Sally?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Nick and I have some news. We are going to have a baby.

Adam: [ Scoffs ] You’ve taken everything from me, and now you’ve made sure that your hold over her lasts a lifetime. Good for you, nick. Good for you.

Nick: Really? You’re going to make this about you. About us? There’s no happiness at all for sally?

Adam: You’re making a mistake, okay? I’ve seen the tension on your face lately. You have been desperately worried about something, and I’m guessing that this is it. I mean, there’s been no joy, no sense of excitement to start a life with nick.

Sally: The only tension that I’ve been feeling is because of this, telling you, knowing that you wouldn’t be happy for us, that you would take the news as some sort of personal insult and that you would use it to try and hurt me in some way.

Adam: That is not what I’m doing. I am trying to spare you more pain. He’s never going to love you the way that I do. You know that. I mean, has he ever said it, those three little words, “I love you”?

Nick: That is enough.

Adam: Well, congratulations on becoming your grandfather again. You’re gonna make a wonderful mother. I’ve always known that.

Victor: Son, you are making a mistake.

Nick: How can I be making a mistake, dad? I get to be a father again.

Victor: How do you even know it’s your child?

Nick: We have paternity test results to prove it.

Victor: Oh, wow. She had a dna test. That should tell you everything, shouldn’t it, son? She wants you to make a commitment, right? Well, congratulations, young lady. I remember you coming to town without anything. Nothing. Now you’ve got the big prize, the eldest newman boy, right?

Nick: Don’t talk to her like that. She is the mother of your next grandchild. If you care about family, you will respect her.

Victor: And what if I don’t?

Sally: Okay, enough, alright? Let’s go. Please.

Nick: You better get on board with this, or you will never know this child. -Nope -c’mon him?

Sharon: Hey, you’re back.

Nick: Yeah. Any updates from mariah and tessa?

Sharon: No, not yet. I just didn’t expect you back here so soon because you tore out of here earlier, looking like you had some plans.

Sally: Uh, we did, actually, but we came back so we could celebrate with something sweet.

Sharon: What are we celebrating?

Nick: Sally’s pregnant. We’re having a baby. I get to be a father again.

Sharon: That’s wonderful. Mariah and tessa’s baby will have a playmate. They’ll grow up together. Doesn’t that sound nice?

Nick: See? We’re going to have a circle of support.

Sally: Oh, that reminds me. I have to call my sister and grams because I’ve waited long enough.

Sharon: How do you really feel about it, nick?

Sally: I know, coco. I have been terrible about keeping in touch, but I’m hoping the reason that I’m calling will give us a good excuse to stay in communication. I’m pregnant.

[ Chuckles ] What? No, no, no. The baby’s not adam’S. Wow, really has been a long time since we’ve talked. Um, nick is the father. Yes. Yeah, uh, adam’s brother. Yeah, that part is awkward, but, um, I mean, you know, everything’s great. I’m really happy and nick is happy and everything is perfect.

Nick: I am happy. I really am. You know I love being a dad.

Sharon: Yeah, I know you do, but this situation, nick, seems a little tricky.

Nick: Ah, we’ll get through it. I’m really looking forward to it.

Sharon: To a newborn? I thought that we were past that phase in our lives. The only newborns we’d be dealing with were our grandchildren.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Obviously, it wasn’t planned, but I think it’s going to be great. I think christian’s going to love this. He’s going to have a little sibling to boss around.

Sharon: Mm. And what about summer? How does she feel about this?

Nick: She doesn’t know yet, but I’m betting she’s going to have an issue with it, but she’ll get over it.

Sharon: I can think of a few other people who won’t deal with it well — victor and adam.

Nick: They both do know. Obviously, they don’t like it. Dad thinks that sally’s just trying to trap me, and adam says I’ll never be able to love sally as much as he does. So it was real fun talking to them.

Sharon: Do you?

Nick: Do I what?

Sharon: Do you love her?

Nick: I mean, I love being with her. We are having a blast. She’s amazing and fun. She really gets me.

Sharon: That’s not an answer, nick. Do you love her?

Nick: I mean, it’s not love, but I don’t think that matters.

Sharon: Of course it does.

Nick: Sharon, we’re both going into this with our eyes wide open. I’ve explained to her that we are going to go through this together, whether we’re a couple or not. Do we have what it takes to last? I don’t know. In all honesty, probably not. But sally’s smart and pragmatic. She’s not expecting a fairy tale. I mean, right, sally? We know where we stand with each other, and that’s okay. The only thing that matters is the baby.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Heart beating ]

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Nick: You okay?

Sally: Yeah, you know how people talk about their lives flashing before their eyes?

Nick: Is that what’s happening with you right now?

Sally: I don’t know. I mean, I’m just considering a lot of possibilities. You know, once we open these results, our lives are going to change. And maybe adam’s, too. It’s going to affect our families, people who love us, people who don’t, and I’m — I’m not even taking into consideration the baby, the most important person in this whole thing. He or she is going to have to be loved and accepted no matter what.

Nick: Well, of course, the baby’s going to be loved.

Sally: I know. I just want to be happy about this baby like mariah and tessa are. I want to be excited and eager. I just — all I feel is worry.

Nick: Sally, I think that’s pretty common for a first-time parent. You know, there’s a lot to worry about. A lot? And like I said before, you got to get through all of that before you get totally happy. But it will happen.

Sally: Would you prefer a boy or a girl?

Nick: I don’t care.

Sally: But if you had to choose?

Nick: I mean it. I don’t care. Each one is perfect and amazing. I would just pray for health.

Sally: Would you treat them differently? Like, if it was a boy, would you teach them how to play sports like a coach?

Nick: I coach all my kids in every sport, whether they’re a boy or girl.

Sally: Would you build them things? Like a tree house?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Right. Uh, I’m not great at building things, but I have a lot of contractor buddies who’ll give us a great price.

[ Both chuckle ] Look, we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We don’t even know if this boy or girl is going to want a tree house. It’s been my experience, each time a kid is born, they have their own unique personality that’s all their own.

Sally: Yeah. I just — I don’t know. I like imagining different possibilities. Like, is the baby going to have my eyes and your…chin? Or my sense of style and your sense of direction?

Nick: We don’t know which traits it’s going to inherit, right? I mean, it’s fun to speculate, but it’s all just guesswork. The only thing I know for sure is this baby is going to be loved and accepted no matter what that test result says.

Sally: Okay.

[ Sighs ] I’m ready.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I’m just logging into my account.

Nick: Do you remember your password?

Sally: [ Sighs ] “The future.”

[ Sighs ] Theo’s nose was cause for alarm, so dad brought
