Days of Our Lives Transcript

Ej: Got it, yes. Thank you for finding her number so quickly. Kristen, it’s your brother. It’s great to hear your voice too. Yes, it took a while, but I finally got your letter.
Lucas: I am so sorry. I am so sorry the way this all went down. But I honestly thought ej was gonna try to kill you. If you didn’t walk in just now, he could have just killed me.
Sami: Well, maybe I should have let him.
Lucas: What do you mean?
Sami: I mean that ej knows about us because of you.
Lucas: No, it’s not because of me. I–I tried to keep it from him.
Sami: You couldn’t just leave it in the fireplace to burn, could you? You couldn’t just let it burn.
Lucas: You know?
Sami: Of course I know. And now ej knows every detail about us. And it is because of you.
Rafe: But you are not alone. You’re not. You have holly and henry, allie, and me.
Nicole: You shouldn’t have to deal with this.
Rafe: Well, I want to deal with this. I’m your friend, nicole. I want to help. I will help. I’m not going anywhere. I’m not. Come here.
Nicole: Thank you. You mean so much to me.
Nicole: I don’t know what I would do without you.
Ava: [Clears throat] Am I interrupting?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Philip: What the… it’s frozen. Oh, come on.
Gabi: I had a wonderful day. I think you’re about to get a job offer from philip.
Jake: That’s great.
Gabi: Yeah. I think our plan is officially in motion. See, first, we get rid of philip, and we take over titan, and then we take over the world.
Jake: Wow. So tell me, how exactly does one get the ball rolling on world domination?
Gabi: Oh, easy. I just had to make a slight modification to philip’s computer.
Philip: Come on. Enough already. Unfreeze, damn it. Stupid bunch of ones and zeros. What the hell?
Philip: Something wrong with my computer. At least there was. It seems to be working fine now. That’s strange.
Chloe: Maybe a little glitch in the system.
Philip: Probably. So what brings you here?
Chloe: Well, I got out of work early, and I figured since you’ve been so kind in chauffeuring me around when I was injured, now that I’ve got two arms at my disposal, I figured I would return the favor and chauffeur you somewhere. Maybe home?
Philip: That’s very thoughtful.
Chloe: Oh, come on. Don’t tell me you have to work late. I was kind of hoping we could go for a celebratory dinner.
Philip: What exactly would we be celebrating?
Chloe: Oh, I don’t know. Maybe my newly working arm, or us.
Philip: I’m really not that hungry.
Chloe: Oh, well, I kind of thought it was more about the company and not the food. You know what? If we brainstorm a collaboration between basic black and titan, I can use my corporate card.
Philip: Brady would really love that, wouldn’t he?
Chloe: What does brady have to do with this?
Philip: Oh, I don’t know. One thing, he already shot down the idea of our companies working together, so I don’t know if I really wanna brainstorm another idea. Get my ass handed to me again.
Chloe: I was kind of kidding.
Philip: Yeah. Well, here’s an idea. Why don’t you have dinner with brady?
Get ready. It’s time for
the savings event of the year.
Chloe: Did I miss something? Philip, this can’t be about brady and me working together. We discussed that, and you said you were okay with it.
Philip: Did you save him from big, bad xander last night? Get him home safely, tuck him in?
Chloe: What are you talking about?
Philip: I waited for you at the pub for hours. I hoping maybe we could have a romantic nightcap. You never came back.
Chloe: It–it was late, and that party was definitely over.
Philip: You could have returned my text message.
Chloe: What text message? I didn’t get a text from you.
Philip: I’m sure you were pretty busy.
Chloe: Philip–oh. “I’m still at the pub. Everything okay? If you need help with brady, let me know. I’ll be here as long as it takes.” I’m so sorry. I swear I did not see this text last night. I was so tired. I just went straight home and to my room.
Philip: At least it wasn’t brady’S.
Chloe: Excuse me?
Philip: I was just saying–
Chloe: No, I heard what you said. What’s your problem? Brady is my friend, and he’s recuperating from a bad car accident. I wanted to make sure that xander didn’t beat the crap out of him.
Philip: I think brady can take care of himself. Oh, but I’m sure he was thrilled when you showed up.
Chloe: You know what? Forget about that offer for the ride.
Philip: Hey, chloe, just–wait. I’m sorry.
Chloe: Think what you want about brady, but you have to trust me, philip. Okay? I work with brady. He’s my friend, but that’s it. I’m with you, and I wanna be with you. But you have to trust that. And you have to trust me or we don’t stand a chance.
Philip: And you’re right about that. I need to grow the hell up. We’re not in high school anymore. We’re adults. And I am damn lucky to have you in my life.
Chloe: Yeah, you are damn lucky.
Philip: You’re right about another thing.
Chloe: Oh, yeah. What’s that?
Philip: I should have done what you did last night. I should have gone home, got in bed. Maybe then I wouldn’t be in the middle of this mess with sami and lucas.
Lucas: You’re right. I did take kristen’s letter out of the fireplace, but I did not give it to ej.
Sami: Because nicole did.
Lucas: I tried to stop her. I did, but it was way too late. Damn it.
Sami: Oh. Yeah. What are you a hero now for trying to stop her? Nicole would never have had that letter if you hadn’t given it to philip.
Lucas: I never gave it to philip.
Sami: That was your plan all along, lucas, I know it.
Lucas: I never had a plan. Sami, I didn’t have a plan. I told you from the very beginning that I would never do that. That I wouldn’t be the one to tell ej about us.
Sami: No. Right. So you sent your henchman to do it instead.
Lucas: My henchman? Really? No. That’s the other guy.
Sami: Okay. Come on. How stupid do you think I am? Philip has no motive to tell ej. The only reason philip gave that letter to nicole is because you put him up to it. Because you knew nicole would use the letter to destroy my marriage.
Rafe: Ava. Hi. What are you doing here?
Ava: Called your office. They said you took the day off. Are you not feeling well?
Nicole: I’m not sick. Just not having the best day.
Ava: Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.
Nicole: Look, rafe was just being kind, giving me a shoulder to cry on.
Ava: That sounds serious. Did something happen?
Nicole: You could say that. Sami dimera destroyed my marriage.
Lucas: Listen, I swear–i swear to you, I knew nicole wanted revenge on you because of what you did. You made xander expose her fling in front of everybody. But I did not tell philip to give it to her.
Sami: Oh, really? I know that’s not true. You admitted to me that you wanted to tell ej about us, but then you didn’T. What? You didn’t have the guts, so you talked your brother into doing your dirty work?
Lucas: I didn’t do it. I had nothing to do with this. I’m telling you the truth.
Sami: Then how did philip get the letter, lucas? When it was delivered, gabi took it by accident, right? And then she was able to convince jake not to use it to his advantage. There was only one other person who even knew that letter existed, because I told you. Because I told you how desperate I was to get my hands on it. And then gabi came back, and she handed me the letter. And I burned it. I tried to burn it in the fireplace, and somehow it gets miraculously resurrected by you.
Ej: That’s why our call ended so abruptly the other day. Samantha grabbed the phone from me and hung up on you. Fed me some nonsense about how I could get into trouble for aiding and abetting a wanted criminal. Of course it was just a ploy to keep you from talking to me, because she knew you’d reveal her betrayal with lucas. What am I going to do about samantha? Believe me, I have plans. You’d never want leftover onion residue
Gabi: All I had to do was put a keylogger on philip’s computer.
Jake: Oh, yeah. Keylogger. Nice.
Gabi: Do you know what a keylogger is?
Jake: Of course.
Gabi: What is it?
Jake: It’s a–okay, fine. But do you know what a piffle valve is?
Gabi: Touché. You’re gonna tell me what a piffle valve is later, but let me explain this to you, because it affects us both profoundly. A keylogger is a type of software that records every keystroke that is on a computer. So anything that philip writes–emails, passwords– I will be able to see.
Jake: Wow, that’s damn impressive. And a little scary.
Gabi: I know, right?
Jake: Yeah. Suddenly this whole world domination thing doesn’t seem outside of the bounds of possibility.
Gabi: I told you. And now that I’ve gotten in the door at titan, we can move on from phase one.
Jake: Okay. What’s phase two?
Gabi: We watch. We listen. We gather information. We learn everything that we can about the way philip does business. And then we find the perfect way to sabotage him. We’ll take him down so fast and hard. He’ll never know what hit him.
Jake: Oh, then we take over the company and the entire world if you have your way, right?
Jake: You are a diabolical genius. You know that? An incredibly hot, diabolical genius.
Chloe: What mess with sami and lucas?
Philip: I probably shouldn’t get into it.
Chloe: Does it have anything to do with them sleeping together behind ej’s back?
Philip: Where did you get that idea?
Chloe: Oh, nicole suspected it. And I’m guessing it’s true.
Philip: It is. But you can’t say anything. Lucas told me this in confidence.
Chloe: I will not breathe a word of it, but you know what secrets are like in salem. They have a way of coming out.
Philip: Especially if they have a little help.
Chloe: Philip, what have you done?
Sami: Why were you even spying on me in the first place?
Lucas: I was not spying on you. I was a little upset, because you hung up on me, and I wanted to see you so we could finish our conversation. But when I saw you in front of the fireplace lighting that letter on fire–i don’t know–it got me a little bit curious, you know. Starting a fire in the middle of july. I didn’t know what you were doing. And then when you left, I fished the letter out of the fireplace, and I saw it. And I read it. And yes, I admit, I did wanna show it to ej at first.
Sami: You did want him to know.
Lucas: I did, because you know how I feel about you. You know I wanna be with you. You know I love you. But I didn’t do that, because I didn’t wanna hurt you.
Sami: Oh, great. That sounds so sweet. Except all you did was just make sure someone else did the dirty work.
Lucas: I was upset, okay? I–I confided in my brother, and–and I told him how I felt about you and how I felt about ej.
Sami: Whatever happened to discretion?
Lucas: Listen to me. How would I know that philip would do that? I thought I could trust him. He was helping me out. He knew I was upset. He came up with this plan, you know, this plan that he could make–he made sure that the letter could get to nicole without it getting traced back to me. But I didn’t go along with it. I shut that plan down. I took the letter, and I crumpled it up. I threw it away. It’s not my fault. How should I know that he was gonna go in the trash can and–and give it to nicole? I didn’t know that.
Sami: Well, either way, you got what you wanted. My marriage is blown out of the water. This is the sound of an asthma attack…
Chloe: So you gave the letter to nicole knowing that she would take it to ej?
Philip: That seemed like a great idea at the time. Nicole gets major payback. Lucas gets a shot to be with sami.
Chloe: So lucas had somebody else do his dirty work.
Philip: No, that’s where you’re wrong. This was all me. Lucas passed on it, because as much as he loves sami, he didn’t wanna hurt her. So that’s where I picked up the ball– with a letter in the trash can, in this case–and ran with it. It’s no surprise lucas isn’t showing a lot of gratitude.
Chloe: Oh, please. ‘Cause he’s such a noble man? He’s the guy who faked a brain tumor to get me out of town, like, really far out of town, antarctica. He’s not above using questionable methods when it suits him.
Philip: I bet you’re not happy with me either.
Chloe: Sami’s marriage blowing up? She deserves it.
Philip: But nicole, we don’t know that she’s actually lit that match yet.
Chloe: Knowing nicole, she’s going to use that letter exactly as you intended. And I’m not saying that I approve of your very naughty method, but I did see my best friend’s marriage fall apart last night, and I would do anything to help her. Right now, I guess I’ll just have to settle for seeing sami reap the damage that she has sown.
Nicole: Eric came home yesterday to surprise me for our anniversary.
Ava: That’s wonderful.
Nicole: Yes, it was at first. I mean, to–to get to be with him after all those months, we were so happy. And especially when he told me that he was just gonna honor his commitment in africa, and then he was coming home for good.
Ava: So what happened?
Nicole: Eric suggested that we throw a party, you know, spur of the moment, just some family and friends. And it was perfect until xander showed up.
Ava: And I’m guessing he didn’t come to wish you well.
Nicole: He told everyone that he and I slept together, and he enjoyed every minute of it.
Ava: Son of a bitch. I was hoping he’d keep his damn mouth shut.
Rafe: You knew about us?
Nicole: I confided in ava.
Ava: I don’t understand. Nicole, I don’t understand why– why would he expose you now after all of this time after you gave him a job?
Nicole: I’m guessing money.
Ava: So sami paid him to blow up your marriage.
Nicole: And it worked too, because eric is on a plane back to africa, and it’s–and it’s over between us.
Ava: What the hell is wrong with sami? What is her problem? I’m sorry. I know that the two of you were married, but where I come from, you don’t just stand back when someone hurts one of your own. Nicole, she’s not gonna get away with this. We’re gonna pay her back.
Nicole: I already did.
Ej: Needless to say, samantha will no longer be living under the dimera roof. Oh, believe me, I wanted to take even more drastic measures. But considering how pathetic she was, it hardly would’ve been satisfying. Harold is packing up her things as we speak. That cheating slut will be gone before dinner.
Lucas: You know I think ej is all wrong for you and that you’d be better off with me. I never meant to cause you pain.
Sami: You keep saying that.
Lucas: When I heard ej got the letter, I was scared. I didn’t know what he would do. I didn’t know how angry he would be. I didn’t know what he would do to you. So I came here, because I wanted to protect you.
Sami: Thank you for that.
Lucas: I’m sorry everything went down the way it did.
Sami: I don’t think you are.
Lucas: Yes, I am. I do. I mean it. You don’t deserve it. You never deserved ej to find out like this.
Sami: Well, one good thing, we certainly made nicole’s day, haven’t we? Maybe her whole year. Maybe her whole decade.
Lucas: I meant what I said before when I told you that if anything ever happened between you and ej that I’d be there for you. Because I love you. I’m sorry that things happened the way they did. I am. But maybe it’s the best. Maybe it’s a sign. Maybe this is our chance. Our chance to finally get back together again. To be a thriver
Ava: So you took kristen’s letter to ej?
Nicole: But before I gave it to him, he was so protective of sami defending her to the hilt. Wouldn’t let me say a bad thing about her even though everything I said was true. But when he read those words out loud from his own sister that sami cheated on him and with lucas, you should’ve seen the look on his face. I actually felt bad for him.
Ava: Please. You did that man a favor. Oh, and you paid back sami hard. Good for you.
Nicole: Yeah. I don’t know how good it is. I still lost eric. And then sami came over here, and she tried to kill me. And if it weren’t for rafe, I–I don’t know what would have happened.
Ava: Well, that’s rafe for you, right? Oh, he’s such a stand-up guy. He’s always–always there for his friends.
Nicole: God, this has been so much about me. Ava, what are you doing here? What’s going on?
Ava: Oh, nope. It does not matter. We can talk about it some other time.
Nicole: Wait, wait, wait, wait, please. Tell me.
Ava: Well, I just–I was hoping that since I’m in the market for a job that maybe you could arrange an interview for me at basic black if you think there’s a position that I might be qualified for.
Nicole: I–I think that’s a great idea.
Ava: Okay. But you know what? That is not for discussion right now. Right now, we need to take care of you. I’m so sorry this is happening, nicole. Why don’t–why don’t you let rafe and i take you out for a dinner? We can get you out of the house. We’ll make a night of it. Just the three of us.
Gabi: Jake, once I put our plan into motion, then victor will have no choice but to toss philip out on his ass. And then the old coot will need to find somebody to right the ship. And who’s gonna be there ready to hit the ground running, ready to do some damage control as the new ceo? Yours truly.
Jake: That’s one answer.
Gabi: That’s–that’s the only answer.
Jake: I don’t know. I’m was thinking that…
Gabi: Thinking what?
Jake: Maybe I could be ceo. Huh?
Philip: Thanks again for not being upset with me for exposing that letter.
Chloe: Well, thank you for telling me the truth. We’ve seen what secrets do to relationships, nicole’s, sami’S.
Philip: There will never be any secrets between us. That I can promise you. And I’m sorry about earlier being a jealous jerk about you going off to help brady.
Chloe: And I’m sorry I didn’t see your text message and join you for that nightcap.
Philip: We can always have a do-over if you’re interested.
Ej: I owe you a great deal, kristen. If it hadn’t been for that letter, I never would’ve learned the truth about my wife. No. No, there’s no going back, no possibility of forgiveness. Knowing how you feel about her, I thought that would please you. You too. Good night.
Sami: The chain. Is this the necklace that I saw in that vintage shop in tuscany?
Ej: Is it? Who can remember?
Sami: You noticed how much I loved this necklace?
Ej: And how did it end up here?
Sami: How did you get it here?
Ej: I tracked down the shopkeeper, and he was more than happy to ship it. Try it on.
Sami: Oh, you should keep–
Ej: I’ve got it.
Sami: So beautiful. I love it. But–but why?
Ej: Well, it’s the least i could do to thank you.
Sami: Thank me for what?
Ej: For standing by me, caring for me while I recovered. And most of all for giving me the time and space I needed to once again become the husband you deserve.
Lucas: Now that your marriage is over…
Sami: Who said my marriage is over?
Lucas: Ej is packing your things. He wants you to go out of the house. I don’t think he wants to patch things up with you.
Sami: Okay, listen. This is what ej and I do, okay? This is who we are. We’re–we’re passionate people. We fight big, and then we make up, and we don’t quit. I–I don’t quit. You trust me. I will make ej come around.
Ej: Why are you still here?
Sami: He was just leaving.
Lucas: We’re not finished.
Sami: We are definitely finished. Did you wanna talk to me?
Ej: I just wanted you to know that harold has packed your bags into your car. One more thing. You left this in our room, something else from my marriage you’ve discarded.
Ice t, stone cold calling on
to turn to cold washing with
Philip: Why don’t we get out of here?
Chloe: I thought you’d never ask.
Lucas: Oh, I’m glad I caught you. Listen, I hate to interrupt, but I need to talk to you.
Philip: Can it wait? We were just about to head home.
Lucas: No, man. It’s important. I’ll only take a couple minutes.
Chloe: It’s okay. I–I’ll just see you at home. Okay?
Philip: Okay. I’ll see you there.
Lucas: Chloe, excuse me.
Philip: So what’s going on? Did you get the letter before it went to ej?
Lucas: No, I didn’T. I was too late. Nicole gave it to him, okay? He read it, and he reacted exactly how we thought he was gonna react. He kicked sami out.
Philip: That’s great, right? Now you have your chance to be with her?
Lucas: Not exactly. Sami figured out that you gave the letter to nicole, and she thought I put you up to it.
Philip: I’m sorry about that, bro, but I can fix this.
Lucas: No, you can’T. Philip, you’ve done enough, really.
Philip: No, I’ll make sure sami knows that it was my idea. I’ll make sure that she knows that your hands are clean.
Lucas: You don’t get it, do you? She wants nothing to do with me.
Philip: But she loves you.
Lucas: She loves him more. She’s determined to convince him to forgive her. She doesn’t wanna be with me, man. I don’t stand a chance.
Ej: What are you waiting for?
Ej: Consider it payment for services rendered. Now that you have all your belongings, you can leave.
Sami: I’m not going anywhere.
Ej: It wasn’t a request.
Sami: This isn’t your house anymore, ej. You don’t get to kick me out.
Ej: And you think gabi will let you stay?
Sami: I’m arianna’s grandmother. Gabi and I are friends. I’m pretty sure she’ll let me stay.
Ej: And what are you going to do? Park yourself in a guest room?
Sami: Well, why not? I’ll be happy to stay as long as it takes for you to forgive me.
Ej: You can stay until hell freezes over. It won’t make a difference to me or how I feel about you.
Sami: You say that now, but you love me, ej dimera. I know you do, so I’m gonna go see gabi and make sure she lets me stay ’cause you know what? You can’t get rid of me that easily.
Gabi: You wanna be the ceo at titan?
Gabi: This whole plan was my idea.
Jake: I know it was, but–all right, look, maybe I should be in the top spot, because after all, I’m the one with ceo experience.
Gabi: I have ceo experience too. I ran my own company.
Jake: I know you did. I–I know, but it’s just that–all right. Titan is a conglomerate like dimera, which I ran.
Gabi: Hello? I ran dimera too.
Jake: I know you did, it’s just–but–
Gabi: What–what could–what “but” could you possibly have about me being ceo of titan? Oh. Oh, no, no, no. Don’t tell me–
Jake: Tell you what?
Gabi: You don’t want me to be your boss.
Jake: No. It’s not that. That would make me a–
Gabi: A disgusting, unevolved, backwards-thinking chauvinistic pig, huh?
Jake: No. Gabi, it’s just that I–
Gabi: It’s just what?
Jake: You’re my girlfriend.
Gabi: What? What does that have to do with me being ceo of titan? Because you didn’t have a problem with kate being your girlfriend, hmm?
Jake: Right. But this time, if you’re a ceo, it’s–
Gabi: What? When I’m ceo?
Jake: Okay, but it just might be a little strange. Okay? You know, working under you.
Philip: I should have left well enough alone, never given nicole that letter.
Lucas: No, don’t worry about it. It’s just–I guess a part of me hoped that if he read the letter he would react the way he did and then sami would see him for who he really is, and she’d choose me. But she didn’T. She wants to be with that bastard.
Philip: She’s making a big mistake passing up a man who loves her the way you do.
Lucas: Thanks, man. I appreciate it.
Philip: Come on. I’ll walk you out.
Trelegy for copd.
Nicole: Thank you, ava. That’s–that’s very sweet of you, but honestly, I don’t really have an appetite, and I’d really like to just be alone now.
Rafe: Are you sure? Are you sure you’re gonna be okay?
Ava: No, we–we totally understand; you need your space.
Nicole: Thanks. And–and thank you, rafe, for–for everything you’ve done. I don’t know what I would’ve done if you weren’t here.
Rafe: Oh, of course. You know that I’m always here for you, right? And if you need anything, I am just–just a phone call away.
Nicole: That’s so rafe to feel sorry for people.
Ava: Oh, my god. You were so condescending.
Nicole: No, it’s just that he–he tries to help people who are trying to make big changes. He has a sir galahad kind of history.
Ava: Well, thank you. Thank you for the rafe 101. But I also know rafe. And he could have helped me by loaning me the deposit for an apartment, but he didn’T. He asked me to stay here. And he asked me to stay, because he likes me.
Nicole: He asked you to stay, because he’s alone. And that’s no reason to start a relationship.
Ava: Now I see why rafe kissing me is so objectionable for you. You want him for yourself.
Ava: Look, when–when you and I started to get close, nicole didn’t think it was a very good idea. And I got the feeling that she was being a bit possessive of you. Maybe jealous even.
Rafe: Well, maybe because we were happy and she wasn’t with eric.
Ava: All right. Well, back then, I kind of thought that maybe she–she had feelings for you. Now I’m starting to think that maybe it’s the other way around.
Jake: I think you know I have zero problem working under you.
Gabi: Except with your clothes on.
Jake: Come on.
Gabi: Oh, seriously. Is–is this gonna be a problem?
Jake: Hey, why don’t we discuss this under the covers?
Gabi: No, no, no, no, no, no. That is not an answer.
Jake: Look, come on. Think of it as research, right? And we could explore both sides of the issue, hmm?
Gabi: Oh, I guess we’d have to be very thorough.
Jake: Oh, I plan to be.
Gabi: I mean, I’m willing to put in the time if you are.
Jake: Yeah? Lead the way. How about I start out on top this time?
Gabi: Not a chance.
Jake: Oh, come on.
Ej: You don’t have to say it, father. Samantha made a damn fool out of me. Not to worry, though. No one humiliates ej dimera. I promise you. She won’t get away with it.
Sami: I’m gonna get you back, ej. Gabi? Is anyone home?
