Lucas: Do you have a confession to make? What’d you do now?

Philip: Yesterday, when you put that letter from kristen to ej in the wastebasket, I took it out.

Lucas: You did what? Why?

Philip: Because you’re too good a guy to use that letter to your advantage. I, on the other hand, am not that good a guy, so I took care of it for you.

Lucas: What do you mean you “took care of it” for me, philip? What the hell did you do?

Philip: I gave it to nicole.

Lucas: Nicole has the letter now?

Philip: Mm-hmm, and seeing as how sami made sure eric found out about nicole sleeping with xander, I’m pretty sure she probably wanted to return the favor.

Sami: So you ordered the champagne. What’s the occasion?

Ej: Oh, I thought we’d toast my new position at dimera enterprises.

Sami: What a good idea. I love this. I have so much to toast, my incredibly smart, handsome, wonderful, and extremely successful husband. I am the luckiest woman in the world, and I can’t think of a time you and I have ever been happier together than we are right now.

Ej: To samantha, who is not only beautiful, strong, and incredibly smart. She’s also a lying adulteress.

Nicole: Well, sami, you did it. You destroyed my marriage. Now let’s see how you like it.

[Knock at door]

Rafe: Hi.

Nicole: Rafe.

Rafe: Well, I went by basic black, and they said you were here.

Nicole: Yeah. I took the day off.

Rafe: Oh, spending some quality time with duke, are you?

Nicole: Something like that.

Rafe: Yeah.

Nicole: Come in.

Rafe: Something’s wrong.

Nicole: You could say that. My marriage. It seems to be over.

[“Here comes the bride playing]


Claire: Surprise.

Theo: What–what the hell is going on here?

Ciara: Driver, you just missed the turn. Hello? This isn’t the way to the church. Excuse me.

Ben: That’s because we aren’t going to the church.

Ciara: Ben?

Ben: Happy anniversary, ciara.

Ciara: What are you trying to pull here, you psychopath? Ben, you have to take me back to the church right now. I am getting married today.

Ben: And I hate to be the one to tell you this, really. But your wedding is off.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Theo: What kind of crazy stunt is this? I mean, what are you getting out of this?

Claire: Nothing. I’m giving ben and ciara a chance to be alone together.

Ciara: Everyone is at the church, ben. They’re all waiting for me.

Ben: Not anymore.

Ciara: You think they’re just gonna not notice when the bride doesn’t show up?

Ben: The bride will be there.

Ciara: What are you talking about?

Ben: Don’t worry about it. You’re in the back of a limo in a beautiful part of the country. You just sit back, relax,and enjoy the ride.

Rafe: I’m so sorry.

Nicole: Me too.

Rafe: So are you sure? I mean, look, I know that eric’s been gone a long time.

Nicole: Well, he came home yesterday.

Rafe: Oh.

Nicole: He came home, and we were so happy that we decided to throw a spur-of-the-moment anniversary party.

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: And that’s where he found out, at the party, that I–I cheated on him.

Rafe: Oh. Okay, that really does not sound like you.

Nicole: I tried calling you that night, but I got your voicemail, and I didn’t leave a message. It was right after eric told me that he was gonna spend three more months in africa.

Rafe: Wait, I… I saw you the next morning outside the salem inn.

Nicole: And I told you that I got a room there to sleep it off. But I lied, and I spent the night with another man.

Lucas: When did you give nicole the letter?

Philip: About an hour ago.

Lucas: An hour ago you gave it to her? Maybe I can still stop her from giving it to ej. Philip, get out of my way.

Philip: Now, listen to me. You wanted sami and ej to be over. You said to me that he’s all wrong for her and that she should be with you.

Lucas: Who cares what I said?

Philip: I do, and now there’s a good chance that everything’s gonna play out exactly like it’s supposed to. And the best part of it is, nicole’s gonna be the bad guy.

Lucas: No, man. You. You’re the bad guy.

Philip: Just listen to me for a minute. Sami’s gonna need someone to pick up the pieces when ej dumps her. And I predict that someone’s gonna be you.

Sami: Ej, for a second there, it sounded like you called me an adulteress.

Ej: You heard me correctly. I know you cheated on me.

Sami: You can’t know that. I never, ever–

Ej: Oh, please give up the phony indignation. I know you slept with lucas.

Sami: Where is this coming from?

Ej: Does it matter? It’s the truth.

Sami: It’s nicole, isn’t it? She’s behind this.

Ej: And there’s a reason why she said let she who is without sin…

Sami: Okay, listen.

Ej: Cast the first stone.

Sami: You cannot believe a word that nicole says, ej. I mean, she hates me. She’s trying to get revenge against me for what happened last night. She blew up her own marriage, and now she’s trying to destroy mine. I mean, you can’t fall for that. Can’t you see? I mean, you know what a liar she is.

Ej: You see, the question is, can I believe you? It’s a matter of trust.

Sami: How can you not trust me? I rescued you from near death. I fought for you to get the best treatment in the world. We have been through so much. I mean, we survived the darkest, roughest time in our marriage. We got through it.

Ej: You brought me back. You made me whole again, and instead of gratitude, you got coldness from me. I failed you, and I’ve acknowledged that. It forced me to be brutally honest with myself and you. I believed we recommitted to one another.

Sami: Because we did.

Ej: Then honor that commitment and be honest with me now. What happened before I came back?

Sami: I slept with lucas.

Get ready. It’s time for

the savings event of the year.

Ej: So it’s true.

Sami: Will you please give me a chance to explain?

Ej: I told you what it meant to me that you didn’t turn to another man while I was shutting you out. You let me go on thinking that.

Sami: Because sleeping with lucas didn’t mean any–

Ej: It means a great deal to me.

Sami: Okay. I’m sorry, okay? We were in the dungeon. I thought kristen was gonna kill us. She sent xander to kill us. That’s why I had to call you for the wire transfer.

Ej: What’s that got to do with having sex?

Sami: I thought I was gonna die. I didn’t think I was ever gonna see you again or my kids, and I was upset. I was sort of freaking out, and…and lucas comforted me, and it just happened. I didn’t mean for it to happen, okay? I didn’t mean for it to happen, and the second it was over, I knew it was the biggest mistake of my life.

Ej: So you’re saying it was just the one time and you were in extremis?

Sami: If “in extremis” means that I was in fear for my life, yes.

Lucas: What are we doing?

Sami: I don’t know. It only happened once. Ej, I know it’s bad, okay? I know, but we can get past this. It’ll take time. I understand that. But you are the only man for me. I love you. You are the love of my life, and I will spend the rest of my life working to make you happy and make us happy, and I think we can get past it. Don’t you think we can get past this?

Ej: We could have if you’d told me the truth just now.

Sami: I am telling you the truth.

Ej: Not according to a letter I received.

Sami: Letter? A letter. From who?

Ej: Kristen.

Lucas: Damn it, man. I knew it. I should have never pulled that letter out of the fireplace. This is gonna destroy sami. It’s not gonna help me, and I know her. She’s gonna be devastated at first, and then she’s gonna get mad.

Philip: But not at you. This isn’t your fault.

Lucas: It is my fault. What are you talking about? Sami put the letter in the fireplace. I took it out. If it wasn’t for me, that letter would be in ashes right now. Now, get out of my way, so I can make sure nicole still has the letter.

Philip: I was only trying to help.

Lucas: Do me a favor, okay? Do me a favor. Don’t do me any more favors.

Ciara: I’m should just open the door and jump out by myself.

Ben: You can’T. You see, I control the locks from up here. But how about a little music? Maybe a little smooth jazz or a little rock and roll?

Ciara: Oh, I cannot believe that I married you, ben. I can’t believe that I spent more than one hour in the same room as you. I am not going to entertain your gross romantic fantasies any further. I’m gonna find my way out of here, and I’m gonna find my way back to theo. Where’s my phone? Where is my phone? Are you kidding me? Ugh.

Theo: Where is ben taking her?

Claire: I can’t tell you that.

Shawn: Claire, this is serious. Ben cannot take ciara against her will.

Claire: She doesn’t know what she really wants.

Theo: I’m calling her.

[Line trilling] You’re in on this too?

Allie: Please don’t freak out, okay? Nothing bad is going to happen to ciara.

Abe: Look, we are going to find her. I promise you.

Allie: Theo, we’re thinking about you too. I mean, if you marry ciara, you’re always gonna be scared that she’s gonna remember ben. And what kind of life is that?

Theo: It’s my life. My choice, not yours.

Belle: Okay, we can’t let this go on. We have to do something.

Lani: You’re absolutely right. You two are aiding and abetting a kidnapping, so tell us where ben and ciara are right now or I will place you both under arrest. (Vo) I am living with cll

Claire: Dad?

Belle: Honey, ben broke the law, and you and allie helped him do it.

Shawn: You are ciara’s brother. Don’t you want her to be happy?

Theo: She is happy with me.

Allie: I’m sorry, theo. If we thought that she was happier with you, then we would never have done this.

Theo: You think she’s happy now stuck god knows where with a guy she’s afraid of? I mean, how many times do I have to tell you guys she wants nothing to do with him.

Claire: She will after ben gets done with her.

Theo: After ben gets done with her. What does that mean?

Ciara: What are we doing here, ben? Where are we?

Ben: This is where I took you after your motorcycle accident. It look familiar?

Ciara: So this is the same cabin where claire tried to set me on fire, right?

Ben: And I will never forgive myself for not being here when she did that.

Ciara: Ben, when I woke up this entire cabin was covered in flames. If my mom hadn’t found me, I would be dead by now. How–how could you bring me here? Why?

Ben: Because I felt like I had to. I had been coming up here by myself, and I wanted you to see it.

Ciara: Well, it looks like someone fixed it up.

Ben: Somebody did. I did that.

Ciara: And why? Why would you do all that work?

Ben: Because after you sent me those divorce papers, I didn’t know what to do with myself, so I took off on your motorcycle. I came up here. I burned your divorce papers right here. Then I started fixing the place up.

Ciara: Why?

Ben: Well, for one thing, it kept me pretty damn busy. But more importantly, I didn’t want it to look the way it did when you were so scared. I wanted it to look the way it did when you and I fell in love.

Rafe: Nicole, hey. I would never judge you. You know that, right? And believe me, I know what it is like to have a one-night stand that you regret.

Nicole: Oh, I regret it all right. And if I told you who the guy was you would totally understand why.

Rafe: Well, listen. You know you can tell me anything, right?

[Knock at door]

Nicole: Hang on.

Rafe: Yeah.

Lucas: Thank god you’re home. I need to talk to you.

Nicole: Not right now, lucas. Rafe is here.

Lucas: This is urgent. It’s so urgent, please. Can I just talk to you alone for a second?

Nicole: Can you just give me a minute? I’ll be right back.

Lucas: You have to give me kristen’s letter. I know philip gave it to you hoping you’re gonna show ej, but you can’t do that. And I know you’re furious with sami. You have every right to be, but you can’t show ej that letter.

Nicole: It’s too late.

Lucas: What do you mean? What?

Nicole: I already gave it to him.

Sami: What’s that?

Ej: Surely you remember me speaking to kristen. You took the phone out of my hand and hung it up.

Sami: Well, I didn’t want you associating with a fugitive. You could get in trouble.

Ej: Remember me saying that she said she’d send me a letter?

Sami: And you didn’t get it.

Ej: Actually, I did.

Sami: It’s not possible.

Ej: As you can see, it’s a little charred around the edges as if someone tried to burn it and failed.

Sami: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Ej: I’ll read you some of it. “I found out what sami had done while I was staying with john and marlena. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but I was masquerading as your dear mother, so I could be close to brady. I was up early one morning, and I heard sami sneaking a man out of the house. I’m sorry to tell you this, but I also heard them talk about having had sex the night before. I confronted sami, and she finally admitted that she cheated on you with none other than lucas horton.” So it wasn’t just one desperate moment when you and lucas were being held prisoner. It also happened in the safety of your mother’s guest room and probably elsewhere.

Sami: No.

Ej: I took…

Sami: It’s not true.

Ej: Responsibility for treating you badly. I bared my soul to you! And yet you just stood there, looked me in the eye, and lied through your teeth.

Sami: You’re gonna believe kristen? She’s nuttier than a fruitcake. She went around town pretending to be your mother.

Ej: So kristen and nicole are both lying, and you’re telling the truth?

Sami: Yes.

Ej: You’re lying right now, and you’ve had multiple opportunities to tell the truth to me. Good god. The day that I arrived here you stood silent, while lucas lectured me on my failures as a husband.

Sami: I was speechless.

Ej: I told you…

Sami: I couldn’t even believe that you were back in town.

Ej: That I would wait for you to be ready to make love. You thanked me without mentioning that lucas horton was satisfying your needs.

Sami: Oh, that is–

Ej: And then, last night, when I asked you why nicole said, “let she who is without sin,” you made up this beautiful little speech about our reconnecting with each other. You said you owed it to me to be honest, and you lied! And before we made love, you told me the greatest lie of all, that your body and your soul and your heart belong to me and me alone.

Sami: That isn’t a lie. That is the truth.

Ej: I’m giving you one more chance. Tell me all of it.

Sami: Okay. Yes. It happened in my mother’s house the first time. And then it happened in the dungeon, just like I said it did in the second time. And that’s it. That’s the only times it ever happened. It is never going to happen again.

Ej: So why did it happen in the first place?

Sami: I was at my mother’s house, and it was the day that I was cleared for the charlie dale murder. And lucas came by to thank me for everything I had done for allie. And he was just coming to say goodbye, because he assumed I was coming home to you to italy. And then everything I had been holding inside of me, it just sort of started pouring out. I told him everything I had been feeling and dealing with, and I admitted that I didn’t even know if I had a marriage to go back to. And then I didn’t want to admit it to you. I didn’t want to admit it to me, and then I said how hard it’s been and how lonely I feel, how alone I feel, even when we’re in the same room together. And I told him that I was afraid you were never gonna touch me again.

Ej: I can’t believe it. You’re saying that this is my fault?

Lucas: Do you know if ej read the letter?

Nicole: He did. He read it right in front of me.

Lucas: How long ago?

Nicole: About an hour.

Lucas: Thanks a lot, nicole. Thank you. Now he’s gonna kill her. Great job.

Nicole: Well, and they’ll get back together. That’s their dance, lucas. How long have we all been standing on the sidelines watching?

Lucas: You’re wrong. I gotta go.

Nicole: Why are you staring at me like that?

Rafe: So it was lucas.

Nicole: What?

Rafe: What do you mean, “what?” The guy you slept with. It was lucas.

Nicole: No, no.

Rafe: Nicole, you can be honest with me.

Nicole: I’m not lying. If it had to have happened, I wish it would have been with someone like lucas. It was xander. Xander is the man I crawled into bed with that night.

Abe: Ciara has been held prisoner all this time, and you two have arranged for her to be held prisoner again.

Claire: No it is not the same.

Lani: Okay. I’ve heard enough. Shawn, I’m sorry, but I have to take her in, and you too.

Claire: No. Mom, you can’t let her do this.

Belle: Isn’t there some other way that we can handle this?

Shawn: No. If the girls don’t cooperate, she has no choice. I’m sorry.

Abe: He’s right.

Claire: Allie, I am so sorry. I didn’t mean to get you into all this trouble.

Allie: No. Claire, it’s okay. If claire’s not going to say anything, neither am I.

Lani: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be provided for you. Do you understand?

Ciara: I know what you’re doing. I know exactly what you’re doing. You wanted to bring me here to this little love nest you fixed up to remind me of how much I supposedly love you, right? That’s the idea?

Ben: Sort of, yeah.

Ciara: Sort of. Yeah. Well, guess what. It’s not gonna work. It’s never gonna work. This is creepy, ben. It is not romantic. This is the place where claire tried to burn me alive. Are we in the middle of the woods in case I don’t react the way you want me to? Are you gonna kill me…

Ben: Oh, my god.

Ciara: If that happens.

Ben: Ciara, I would never lay a hand on you.

Ciara: Oh, right, because you are such a great guy. You locked me in a car and brought me here instead of to my wedding.

Ben: Because I wanted you to see this place. I wanted to see if you felt anything familiar to you. You’re already here. Come on. Take a look around. What else are you gonna do? I’ll let you take your time.

Ciara: You know what? Fine. I will take a look around. On one condition. You take me back to salem as soon as I’m done.

Ben: Deal.

Ciara: Deal.

Rafe: Xander, huh? Wow. That’s–ooh.

Nicole: Now you know why I was such a mess the next day when you saw me. You said I smelled like patchouli, and you were right. You know, I don’t even remember what I said to you. I just came up with a bunch of lies, and I just wanted to get out of there as fast as I could.

Rafe: I could tell you were uncomfortable.

Nicole: Uncomfortable? “Uncomfortable” doesn’t quite catch it. I… barely even look you in the eyes. I…I still can’T.

Sami: No. No, I am not trying to just blame you for this, okay? I’m not. But we were having real problems with our marriage.

Ej: I didn’t cheat on you.

Sami: Well, maybe not this time, but there was abby, right? You were having an affair with her right under my nose, and I forgave you.

Ej: After you got your revenge.

Sami: Well, we found a way to work through it, right? Because that’s what we do. That’s what people do when they love each other. They find a way to work through things. Come on, ej. Don’t you think we could do that? We can work through it.

Theo: You remember ciara and ben. Did he really love her?

Abe: You know, you don’t have to worry about her safety. He won’t hurt her.

Theo: That’s not all I’m worried about. He wants her to remember loving him, and if she does, I’m gonna lose her.

Ben: What is it? Ciara, are you remembering something?

Ciara: Ben, I–

Ben: What is it? What?

Ciara: Go to hell.

Ben: Ah!

Certain hpv-related cancers?

Ej: What I did with abigail is different.

Sami: How?

Ej: You and I weren’t married at the time.

Sami: We were engaged.

Ej: We hadn’t taken vows.

Sami: Oh, you’re not getting off on a technicality, ej. You are not. We were in a loving, committed relationship, and you know it.

Ej: Marriage is sacred. An oath before god and man.

Sami: I see. I see. I’m not on trial here. We’re at church. Reverend dimera.

Ej: Being near death for as long as I was, it did give me a renewed appreciation for a higher power.

Sami: Well, it’s too bad it didn’t give you a renewed appreciation for your wife, for your loving wife, who sacrificed everything to be with you, to do everything to help you day in and day out. And all you did was treat me like a home care attendant.

Ej: I admitted that. It’s why I said I’d wait for you to be ready to make love.

Sami: Oh, right. You finally come to town. You’re yourself again, and you waited four whole days.

Ej: You were cheating with lucas and lying to me about it. For all I know, you had sex in every single bedroom…

Sami: Oh, please.

Ej: In this very house.

Sami: Give me a break! It was twice. Two times.

Ej: The only reason you told me about the second time was because I showed you proof of your duplicity. How do I know that you’re not still carrying on with him? How can I believe anything you say ever again?

Lani: I’m going to give you girls one more chance to tell us what you know about ciara’s whereabouts.

Shawn: Look, if the two of you insist on keeping quiet, you’re gonna get charged, and you’re gonna get booked. And we don’t want to do that.

Lani: But we will if we have to.

Shawn: Claire, honey, tell us what you know. All right? Where did ben take ciara?

Claire: Looks like allie and I are gonna have to lawyer up. Mom, will you please represent us?

Ben: Wait. Don’t go. Don’t go. Don’t go. Please.

Ciara: You don’t call the shots anymore, ben.

Ben: Wait. Don’t–wait. Oh, my god. Just wait.

Ciara: You’re faking.

Ben: I can’t put any weight on my ankle. I think I twisted it when i fell.

Ciara: Oh, wow.

Ben: I think I might have broken it.

Ciara: You’re good. You know, you could have been an actor.

Ben: I’m not faking this, ciara. I swear to you it’s killing me.

Ciara: Why would I help you? You have a phone. Go call someone for help. I have a wedding to get to, ben.

Ben: Fine. I give up. I give up on all this, because this is your life. You go do whatever it is you think you gotta do. Go. Go ahead.

Ciara: Hang on, theo. I’m coming back, and we’re gonna get married, just like I planned.

From prom dresses

Lucas: Sami! Sami!

Ej: If you’re looking for your mistress, she’s not here.

Rafe: How you doing?

Nicole: I’m okay. I’m okay. I just–I’m really glad you came by, rafe.

Rafe: Thanks. Hey, can i ask you a question though?

Nicole: Sure.

Rafe: Why did lucas drag you out in the hall? What was so important?

Nicole: Well, it turns out that I am not the only woman who was unfaithful to her husband. Sami, the hypocrite. She’s been sleeping with lucas.

Rafe: Sami and lucas?

Nicole: Yeah.

Rafe: Really?

Nicole: I thought that flame flickered out years ago.

Rafe: Wow. Okay. I admit it. I am shocked.

Nicole: So was her husband.

Rafe: Really? Ej knows. You sure?

Nicole: Because I made sure he found out, and then lucas came here because he wanted to stop me, but it was too late.

Rafe: Uh-huh.

[Knock at door]

Nicole: And I bet I know who that is. I’ve been expecting you.

Sami: Rafe, you better get out of here. The bitch and I need to talk.

Abe: Look, I know you’re worried that ciara might recover her memories about being with ben, but it hasn’t happened yet.

[Door thumps]

Theo: Ciara? I thought you went to the station.

Lani: I had to make sure you were okay.

Theo: I’m not. I’m not okay at all.

Ben: Ciara, you came back.
