THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Welcome one and all. We are here to join this man and this woman, and this man and this woman in holy matrimony. Marriage is a sacred institution based on trust, love, and mutual respect. Should anyone present see any reason why these two Excuse me, why either of these two out of the four should not be wed.
Speak now or forever hold your peace. Who left that part in?
Well then. Wait a minute!
I have something to say.
So I tell you that Sona and I are having a baby and that I’m happy about it? And all you can say is that at least Nicole’s not the mother? What, what are you supposed to say? How about congratulations? Look, Sammy, I gotta go. Kate and dad are here. Yeah, I’m sure Kate wishes you well, too. Bye. Sorry we’re late, but it’s for a very good read.
Yeah. Abe is coming home from the hospital. We went to help Paulina get everything ready. Well, he’s well enough to come home. That’s great. Best news ever. I’m sure Paulina’s just excited. Oh, she is. She is. The only thing, Abe still has amnesia, so unfortunately he doesn’t recognize, he doesn’t know who she is.
Yeah, but he’s alive and he’s coming home, we’re gonna do everything we can to make sure he recovers his memory, you know, lots of visits and reminders of how much we love him and make sure that he knows everybody’s there for him. Yeah, of course, that’s great, and I’ll do whatever I can to help. I know you will, sir.
Well, I have some good news to share myself.
I’m gonna be a dad.
My test results were already picked up. That’s what it says right here. Well, that’s impossible because I’m Nicole Walker and I did not pick them up. May I see your ID? Seriously, please.
Look, there is obviously a mistake. My baby’s father got a call from Dr. Sorenson’s office saying the test results were ready. And I came right over. So you lost them in what, a matter of 15 minutes? I’m sorry. Sorry isn’t good enough. What the hell happened to my test results?
So there it is in black and white. Nicole really is having Eric’s baby.
I mean, as soon as she sees these results, she’s gonna know the truth.
And it’s all gonna blow up in my face.
Well, this isn’t our expected turn of events. Well, not completely unexpected. What the hell are you doing?
I’m sorry, Gwenny, I can’t let you marry this man. Like
sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
So, slow news. I think the word you’re looking for is pregnant. Are you sure? Yeah, we’re sure. We took a test and we’ve seen her doctor and… We’re happy about it, and I hope you are too. So Sloane didn’t want to be here when you told her? No, she wanted to be here, but she had something she had to take care of.
Okay, don’t panic, don’t panic. So what, Nicole finds out Eric’s the father, I mean… He’s your father too, little angel, and I mean, we’re in love. And Nicole’s ensconced in a mansion. I mean, It’s a stupid piece of paper. It doesn’t mean we’re gonna lose him.
does it? Is it possible the father picked up the results himself? No, he’s at a wedding. Well, I’m sorry, I don’t know what happened to them, but if you wait here, I’ll print out another copy for you. Ho ho, Nicole’s missing all the fun. I wonder what’s keeping her. Dammit, Matty, what are you doing? Look, I just think I know what you think.
In fact, I’ve heard nothing but what you think about Dimitri for the past few weeks now. And none of it’s consistent. Excuse me? One minute it’s, don’t marry him, and the next minute it’s, oh, you’re gonna be so happy together. I know, I know, I’m sorry. Excuse me, remember us? Hey, the OG bride and groom here. I didn’t want a double wedding in the first place.
I certainly did not want this psycho drama. I’m so sorry. No, it’s not your fault, it’s his fault. Please stop sniveling or get out, because I’m getting married to Stefan, right here, right now. No. Look, Mattie, Tell me. Come on, tell me. Just talk to me. Just tell me what’s wrong.
Thank you. But printing out a copy doesn’t explain what happened to the original genetic test results, that they’re kind of private on personal. Um, my colleague just went on a break. Let me see if I can track her down and get some answers. Yeah, okay. You do that, and you might want to tell her to forgo her break because the baby’s father is EJ DiMera.
No. He’s a certain amount of clout in this town. Tell me.
Here. I’m gonna call Nicole. Something’s wrong. I’ll be back. Gabby, I’m sorry. Really, I am. Not as sorry as you’re gonna be. Talk to me. Look, it’s just, you’re my best friend. You’re my only friend. But if you are her friend, then you will trust her and her decision. Now, I know that you don’t trust me, but I promise you I am not going to hurt her.
I will make sure he keeps his word. Leo, I know how much you love Gwen, and vice versa, but you will always be a part of her life, which means that you and I are kind of stuck with each other, and I’m hoping that someday, even we could be friends. Heartwarming. Now can we shut up and get along with this thing?
And I know that this marriage is going to enrich all our lives.
Your blessing means so much to me.
Okay. Blessings upon blessings. Thank you. Actually, that means a lot. No, actually what that means is that we can proceed with this wedding. Now, please, one more time with feeling. Right, um, so where was I? Um, oh yes, um, if anyone for any reason Okay, no, no one does. Just move on. Gabriella and Stephan, Gwen and, remind me of your name.
Dimitri. Dimitri. Marriage is a commitment to life. The best that two people can offer. It brings out growth and development unlike any other relationship. It is a physical and an emotional relationship that is promised for a lifetime.
Thanks, but there’s no point. I’m sure it’ll get… Straighten out soon. Or else I’m going to kill someone. Well, This is, uh, Certainly unexpected. Actually, it was planned. Really? You want the details? No, I don’t. Eric, I’m sorry, I’m just surprised. And not pleasantly. You know, usually with an announcement like this, I would have expected to hear Congratulations, I’m really thrilled for you, son.
For the record. I’m told that I’ll be a grandfather again and I’m happy for you because I know how much you wanted to be a father. Yeah, well that was carefully worded. Oh, come on Eric, you know, Sloane is not my favorite person. Because she didn’t like the chowder? No, because she terrorized Paulina and Chanel and then gave her damn playbook to her demented brother.
Alright, honey. And he’s the reason why my best friend Abe has no idea who in the hell he is. So I apologize. I’m so sorry. I’m so damn sorry. Yeah, right. Yeah, well, I thought you were just having a fling with that woman, not having a baby with her. Now you are. That’s a hell of a commitment. What the hell changed, Eric?
That dream, that nightmare, this is coming true. Eric’s gonna find out that Nicole and I are both having his baby. And he’s gonna go right back to Nicole. She’s probably on the way to pick these up right now. There’s only one thing I can do.
Gabriela and Stefan, have you come here to enter into marriage without coercion, freely, and wholeheartedly? We have. Gwen and Dimitri, have you come here to enter into marriage? Without coercion, freely, and wholeheartedly? I have. Yes. I have.
Do you, Stefan, take Gabriela to have and to hold, to love and to cherish, from this day forward till death do you part?
Si. Quiero. I do. Do you, Gabriela, take Stefan To have and to hold, to love and to cherish, from this day forward till death do you part. I do.
By the power vested in me. I now pronounce you husbands and wives. You may now kiss your wife.
Stefan, you may now kiss your wife. I
know you don’t approve of me and Sloan, and you believe that we’re doing this all for the wrong reasons. But once upon a time ago, you had to welcome E. J. DeMere into the family, and I’m sorry, Kate, but let’s not forget about Lucas who frickin kidnapped Sammy. Okay, no, that’s fair. And, Eric, I did encourage you and Sloane to have a baby, if you recall.
You did? Yes, I did. I encouraged them both to go ahead and do it. Life is short. Seize the day and all of that. I would be a hypocrite if I expressed disapproval right now. So, I want you to know, I’m very happy for you. Thank you, Kate. I really appreciate that. Unfortunately, my father doesn’t feel the same way you do.
Don’t go away then!
Ma always said that every child is a blessing, and what could be better than a new breed? That’s right. I know this baby is going to be loved, and it’s going to be cherished, and it’s going to be spoiled like crazy. So congratulations, Eric. To you, and to your child. Who will be as lucky as hell to have the best father any kid could ever ask for.
to my colleague. She said she gave the test results to Nicole Walker. No, she didn’t. I am Nicole Walker. You saw my freaking ID. Uh, so who the hell did she give it to? Me. Thank you,
Dad, for coming around. Yeah, well… Thanks to Kate for being happy for you and for me remembering Ma’s words. Look, I admit that I had misgivings when I first heard, but this is obviously something you want very badly. So I want it for you.
Especially since I know how disappointed you were when Jada decided to Terminate her pregnancy. Yeah, I was, but… Sloane and I’s decision to have a baby had nothing to do with that. Or Nicole having EJ’s child. Dad, you know it’s been a hard year for me, and Sloane’s been through it all with me. Does… Does Gina know about the baby?
She does. I, uh… I told her earlier today, and she took the news very well. But she and I have both moved on.
Boy, that Leo, he, he really likes attention, huh? Oh, yeah. But I will say that by Salem standards, the wedding was relatively drama free. Couldn’t you
have given me a drama queen at my wedding.
Why did you do that? I’m gonna leave. No, please. You did what you thought was right. And it would kill me to know that the two of you stopped being friends because of me.
you. So, how long do you think they’ll last? Gabby and Steph?
Well, going by their statistics, somewhere south of six months. You want to play the odds? I’m trying to be a supportive brother. You’re no fun. I noticed that Gabby is wearing Daphne DiMera’s sapphire necklace. I assume you gave it to her? I loaned it. So I’m not the only one trying to make money. I was feeling charitable, since the good news.
Now that you share joint custody of Rachel. Mm hmm. I also want Gabby to see me as a friend, not an enemy. If you said the same thing about Megan and look how that turned out. Stefan followed your advice and agreed to a double wedding. He figured it was no skin off his nose to ingratiate himself with our nephew.
Of course, you didn’t foresee Leo Starr’s nonsense. Don’t suppose you know what that’s about? I have no idea.
Gabby, you look beautiful. Especially when you were yelling at Leo. Can you believe that nincompoop? You know, it looks like you’ll be in a body bag by now. Well, overall, I feel like the wedding was beautiful. I thought so too. Thank you. And what was up with Leo? You know what? It doesn’t even matter. Because what I remember is saying I do, and the justice of the piecing, and your man and wife.
That’s all that matters. Definitely. All that matters.
Hey, hey, hey. Oh, I’m so sorry. Hey, Jay, I’m sorry. Um, don’t worry about it. It’s okay. Uh, anyway, I, uh, heard you’re having a baby, so congratulations. Uh, thank you. And, uh, Nicole, is she coming back? Because I’d like to congratulate her in person. Uh, I hope so. Um, Excuse me. Thank you. Thank you again. Yep. So, you want to congratulate Nicole?
Taking the high road. But, you know, since she’s not here, I’ve actually had enough Salem weddings for one day, so, uh, maybe we should just, uh, take off. I don’t think Gabby would mind. Yeah, I don’t think she would either. Let’s go. You
sure you’re protected?
Why do you have my test results? Well, Eric and I are having genetic testing done too. So I came to see if our results are ready and she must have just given me yours by mistake.
It’s open. Look, I’ve been having a lot of anxiety. I just, I’m sorry. I didn’t even look at the envelope to check the name.
Thank God. What is it? Um, no genetic anomalies. That’s wonderful. Yeah, I can’t wait to tell EJ that, uh, our baby’s fine.
Okay, that should do it. Presto change o! No mention of EJ not being a genetic match for Nicole’s baby.
I guess I don’t need to print another copy after all.
So, man and wife again. Congratulations. Thank you, and thanks for standing up for me today. Oh, I didn’t do much. You took the job. That means a lot. And I have to say, I’m very happy about joining this family again. I know you don’t feel the same way, but Stefan wants to be close to his brother, so maybe we could have a fresh start.
I’d like that.
Aren’t you gonna toss your bouquet? Shall I aim it in your direction? Thanks, but I still have some wild oats to sow. You know, I was thinking it would probably be a bit more civilized, seeing as we’ve got two bouquets and two single women here, that I should just give mine to Jada. Have you seen where she went?
We need to talk. Have you seen Jada?
Um, I think she and Wraith, uh, snuck out. Oh, alright then. Here you go. What is this for? Well, you are the one single woman left here. Auntie Kristen. Please do not call me that. I am your niece. Okay, sorry, it’s the last time. Mm hmm, alright. I wonder if Leo’s feelings for Dimitri have been, um… But
to bed, shall we say? Well, Dimitri’s really been great. He’s, um, really smoothing things out with Leo. Actually,
I’m back. Oh, Miss Walker. Did you get everything straightened out with the test results? Yes, we did. I’m sorry. I can’t imagine. All’s well that ends well, right? Did you park in the garage? Let me walk you out. Come. Okay.
What are you doing with that? Gwen gave it to me. Since I am the only single woman in attendance. I hope Nicole doesn’t have her heart set on being the next bride. Well, she hasn’t mentioned it, but… Who knows? Hmm. What the hell was what? Oh, you know damn well what I’m talking about. That sudden attack of conscience.
And you know damn well it wasn’t sudden. My conscience has been giving me splitting headaches since we hooked up. Not to mention acid reflux and acute insomnia. And I have been telling you ever since we hooked up that Gwen is going to be fine, okay? I’m going to inherit millions of dollars. And the three of us are going to live happily ever after.
So you get to have your cake and eat it too? Share and share alike. I don’t want any. Oh, come on.
Just eat it. Come on. It’s good, huh? It’s a little sweet. Cake is supposed to be sweet. But you, uh, you got a little too much of it. I see. You got it? Yeah, I think I got it. What’s going on here?
Whoa! Well, look at you two. You look fabulous. Well, thank you. This came from Gabby’s wedding. Ah, did you catch the bouquet? Uh, they didn’t throw them. They, them, what do you mean? Well, it turned into a double wedding at the last minute. Yeah. Dimitri von Leutzner married Gwen Rischek. Well, that sounds like a marriage created in heaven for the Macbeths.
Yeah. Anyway, we did not mean to interrupt, so if you’ll excuse us. Of course. Enjoy the rest of your evening. Thank you. You too. All right. Good to see you two. I think they make an adorable couple.
Jane looks happy. Yeah, I think she does. So, how far along is Sloan? Uh, just a few weeks. I’m surprised you’re telling people so early. Well, why not? I mean, she’s young and she’s healthy. I’m sure the whole thing is going to be smooth sailing. So?
What are You caught us. We were working on the surprise for the wedding. Oh, right. The surprise. Well, now that we’re married, I finally get to hear what that is. So, what’s the big surprise? What perfect timing. I love surprises.
So, what is it?
I think we should take this party upstairs. It’s our wedding reception. I don’t think anyone’s going to miss us. Yeah, and actually, who cares if they do?
Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be nosy. Oh, no, no, no, not at all. Uh, you’ll all know soon enough, I suppose. I was, I was just asking Leo here for his advice on our honeymoon. And he told me that, well, that you have always wanted to go to… Iceland! Iceland, Iceland. Oh, how do you remember it? Iceland. Oh, the blue lagoons and the ice caves.
The um, the land of fire and ice. That’s the documentary that sparked my interest. Oh, you are so thoughtful. You’re so generous, and I love you so much. Oh! Well, I think that’s my cue to leave. Mine, too.
Nicole, thank God. I was about to send out a search party. Did you finally get the test results? Yes. And they were delayed because, never gonna believe why. The nurse accidentally gave them to Sloan Peterson.
Hey, you made it. Sloan, come over. We’re toasting a new baby. They’re happy for us. Can I get you something? You know, a burger, something to drink? Non alcoholic, of course. No, no, nothing. Thank you. What’s wrong? Is your brother okay? Uh, no, I actually, I never went and saw my brother. Eric, there’s something I need to, to tell you.
For coming with me today. Thanks for having me. I had a really nice time. I know, even though you didn’t get to read your book. Well, the day is still young.
Wanna come in for a little while?
Simone, what is it?
I lied to you about going to see my brother.
I was feeling really anxious after I had that nightmare this morning. Like something could be wrong with the baby. So I went to the hospital, and I just wanted to see if our test results were ready. Why didn’t you tell me? I would have gone with you. Because I knew that you were having lunch with your dad and Kate, and I didn’t want you to worry, too.
Didn’t the doctor say it was going to take a few days? Yes, and the results weren’t ready, but… Just, I’m feeling a lot better now. You are? Yeah. See, I, I ran into Nicole while I was there. And, um, the doctor put her results on Rush, and she found out everything’s okay with the baby. That’s great. I’m sure she and EJ are happy.
Yeah. And I think just hearing her, you know, have positive news about her baby, it made me just I feel really good about ours, and I just, I know everything’s gonna be okay now.
It’s good news, EJ.
Oh, thank God. It’s, it’s been hard to believe that everything’s gonna be okay. But now it’s starting to seem real. Uh, we’re gonna have a baby. Our
perfect little miracle. A miracle indeed. And now, we can stop worrying and enjoy the ride.
Congratulations. Thank you. And once you get your inheritance after your pending birthday, I’m sure you won’t forget your Aunt Kristen. Of course not. Good. And a word to the wise, I wouldn’t consider changing my name. Dimitri DiMera to alliterative.
No. No, excuse me. Hello. Well, why would the judge wanna see me? What about Rachel’s custody? Okay, I’ll be right there. So I would like to quote the bard and say, you know, uh, parting is such sweet sorrow, but right now it feels about as sweet as a horseradish pickle. What Gwen? I’m already feeling bereft of you.
Will you just stop with the melodrama already? The Sailor Moon is just three miles away. Who’s gonna wake me up singing in the shower off key every morning? Trust me, if you are late, you will hear from me. And you’re not gonna miss me at all, are you? Oh, come on. Of course I am. I’m gonna miss you terribly.
Don’t worry. We’ll be seeing plenty of Leo, I’m sure. We’ll have him over all the time. Yes, absolutely. Well, I suppose I wouldn’t mind spending more time at Chez Demure if they’ve got a basement full of this stuff. Let’s go open another bottle. Yeah, I’m gonna get you some water first.
Oh, Stefan, wait, when did you do this?
How? I have my ways. Oh, Stefan, this is so romantic. Thank you, but, uh, do you mind if I? Oh, I don’t mind at all. I love you, Mrs. DiMera. Calm my heart. Find body and soul.
