Tripp: Hold on, hold on, I’m coming, I’m coming. Hey!
Chanel: Here we go. Another guy in a towel.
Tripp: E-excuse me?
Chanel: Just try not to let it fall off, okay? I’m here to talk to horton.
Tripp: Allie isn’t here.
Chanel: She didn’t spend the night with you?
Chanel: Then where the hell is she?
Claire: WA. Why is it so much easier to stay up all night clubbing than in a police station?
Allie: Try having a baby. Then we can talk about sleep deprivation.
Claire: It was nice of uncle roman to look after henry so you could be ciara’s maid of honor.
Allie: Mm. I bet ciara’s regretting that choice right now.
Claire: Why? Because you helped ben kidnap her?
Allie: Shh. Do not say that in here.
Claire: They’re not allowed to listen to us in here. I don’t think.
Allie: Listen, when I agreed to help ben, I did not think it was gonna end up like this. I mean, how long can they keep us in here anyway?
Claire: Hey, it’s gonna be fine. I am sure that my mom’s gonna get us out of here soon.
Belle: You need to let those girls go now.
Eli: Hello, belle.
Belle: Ben kidnapped ciara. So why don’t you go and track him down?
Eli: Have you not spoken to your husband?
Belle: No. He’s been out searching all night.
Eli: That’s because he’s pursuing a lead.
Belle: Oh. What kind of lead?
Eli: Apparently ciara’s motorcycle was found outside the dimera gatehouse. They’re staking the area just to make sure ben doesn’t come back with ciara.
Belle: Well, that’s great. Then you don’t need allie and claire.
Eli: I am more than happy to let allie and claire go. As soon as they tell me where ben took ciara. This isn’t over until theo gets his bride back.
Theo: I told you, I don’t want breakfast. I just wanna find my fiancéE.
Abe: We will find her, but you won’t help if you pass out.
Theo: I’m fine.
Ben: This is where I took you after your motorcycle accident.
[Small laugh] Look familiar? I think that’s called the universe trying to tell you that you’re not supposed to leave here until you remember our love.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Ben: Good morning.
Ciara: What’s good about it?
Ben: Seeing you first thing already made my day. How’d you sleep?
Ciara: Could’ve been worse. Well, at least you didn’t make me sleep in this chair.
Ben: Naw. Giving you the bed is the least I could do.
Ciara: You even gave me pjs. What a gentlemanly kidnapper you are. I cannot believe that I actually tore my own wedding dress to make a splint for your ankle.
Ben: Mm. Well, I mean, you did do that to me. Not that I’m complaining.
Ciara: [Huffs] You know what? Whatever. I’ll just get another dress when I go back to salem, because I am marrying theo.
Ciara: Oh, my god–theo. He and my family must be so worried about me. I mean, besides claire and allie, your little partners in crime.
Ben: They care about you, ciara. They were just trying to help you remember how much we love each other.
Ciara: I love theo. Theo is the man that I love. He’s the one that I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with.
Ben: All right, you keep telling yourself that, and I’ll refuse to accept it.
Ciara: Well, that seems like it’s your problem and not mine, because this time I’m actually leaving.
Ben: Did you forget that the limo won’t start? I highly doubt that it fixed itself overnight.
Ciara: Then I’ll walk.
Ben: Ciara, don’t–don’t go.
Chanel: Nicole said allie never came home–we both assumed she spent the night with you.
Tripp: I mean, did you try texting her?
Chanel: Of course, like 20 times; when I called, her phone went straight to voicemail.
Tripp: What about henry?
Chanel: Nicole said he’s with allie’s grandfather, but it’s not like her to stay out all night. Where would she even go?
Tripp: Maybe when she dropped henry off, she decided to stay there–I’ll call roman.
Eli: I have every right to hold allie and claire for questioning, and I’m sure da trask will back me up on that.
Eli: What they did was wrong.
Belle: They were just trying to help a friend.
Eli: This isn’t some cute rom-com, belle. Ciara was abducted on her wedding day.
Belle: All right. Listen, I understand that you’re coming at this from a different place because it’s theo.
Eli: They should be married. He loves her, and from what i hear, he’s really upset about this.
Belle: So you do admit that this is personal for you.
Eli: I’m just doing my job. You know what? Yeah, you’re right, this is personal. Theo’s my family.
Belle: Fine. I get that. But let me remind you that allie and claire are your family too.
Allie: Ciara must have lost it when she realized ben was the limo driver.
Claire: Yeah. Look, hopefully, being at the cabin is gonna jog her memory.
Allie: That’s where they first connected, right, where they started falling in love.
Claire: Yeah, it’s also where I tried to set her on fire twice.
Allie: Well, if she remembers everything she’ll remember that she forgave you for that too.
Claire: Yeah. Let’s just pray that ben’s plan works.
Allie: And that theo forgives us for ruining his wedding.
Theo: Couple? They’re not a couple. Ben and ciara are divorced. Why would they write that?
Abe: My guess is that victor offered the reward, and that’s the only photo he had that included ben.
Theo: Why would he not tell us that he’s doing this?
Abe: Because he’s victor.
Paulina: Or maybe it’s because I’m the one who offered the reward.
Abe: You did this? Why?
Paulina: I heard about theo’s fiancée getting kidnapped and I wanted to help get her back.
Theo: You did this for me?
Paulina: I did it for both of you.
Ice t, stone cold calling on
to turn to cold washing with
Paulina: I’m so sorry, theo. I can’t even imagine what you’re going through right now.
Theo: Thank you.
Paulina: When I heard the news about the wedding, I-I grabbed the phone to call you, abe, but then I realized you didn’t wanna hear from me. But I just couldn’t do nothing.
Abe: You made the posters.
Paulina: Mm-hmm. And I’m sorry about the photo, theo. I just did a quick search online, and that was the first one I found.
Theo: I understand. It’s okay.
Paulina: But it must be painful seeing them together like that.
Theo: The only thing that matters right now is finding ciara.
Abe: $100,000. That’s a lotta money.
Paulina: Which I will pay gladly if we bring theo’s fiancée back home.
Theo: I don’t even know what to say. Thank you, paulina.
Abe: Yes, thank you.
Tripp: Okay, okay, nicole, let me know if I can help with henry at all. Yeah, yeah, you too. Oh, man.
Chanel: What? What’s going on?
Tripp: According to her grandfather, allie spent the night at the police station.
Chanel: The police station? Why?
Tripp: She and claire were arrested.
Chanel: For what?
Tripp: Apparently, they helped ben weston kidnap ciara.
Chanel: Ciara? Isn’t she the one that’s engaged to theo?
Tripp: That’s right, that’s right. It happened right before the wedding. Wait, wait, wait. Where are you going?
Chanel: Allie’s in trouble and I’ve gotta go help her.
Tripp: What are you gonna do at the police station?
Chanel: I don’t know! But I’m sure she’s upset and scared, and she’s my friend.
Tripp: Yeah, well, she’s my girlfriend. So if anybody’s gonna go down there to help her, it should be me.
Belle: Listen, I get that you’re under pressure because theo is lani’s brother, but those are your cousins in there, eli. And whatever they did, they were just trying to help ciara remember how much she loves ben.
Eli: You’re acting like this is no big deal. Ciara is missing, okay? She’s been abducted by a man that she doesn’t even remember loving. A man who she thinks is a serial killer.
Belle: Oh, c’mon, he’s not that guy anymore.
Eli: I’m not saying that he is. But if I were ciara, I’d be pretty damn scared. Hell, I might even do something desperate to escape. So what you need to do is go in there and get allie and claire to tell me everything they know about where ben took ciara.
Claire: And this stupid wedding dress–it’s so itchy.
Allie: Where did you even get it so last-minute?
Claire: A sale rack at basic black. Allie, when are we going to get out of here?
Allie: I don’t know. We just have to keep our mouths shut until ben can get through to ciara.
Claire: And I do believe that he will. He just has to make her remember how much they love each other. And knowing ben, he is not gonna give up.
Ben: It is at least 20 miles back to salem. You are not walking that.
Ciara: I’m not. Okay. Well, um, I don’t have to walk the entire way. I can find a store or a gas station, or I can catch a ride with somebody. I’ll hitchhike.
Ben: You’re gonna hitchhike? No, I don’t think so. That’s not safe.
Ciara: It’s not safe? Well, who are you worried I’m gonna run into? A serial killer? I’m already looking at one.
Ben: Fine. But you should at least eat something first.
Ciara: Well, I can see that there’s no food here.
Ben: There’s a full cooler in the back of the limo that I told you about last night, but you insisted on going to bed hungry.
Ciara: Yeah, because that cooler is evidence that you plotted my abduction, which would make it easy for the da to nail you.
Ben: [Scoffs] Maybe so. Regardless, I will get that cooler before you leave.
Ciara: Stop it. Ben, ben, sit. Stop.
Ben: I’m fine. I’m good.
Ciara: Yeah, you can stay right there. I will go get the cooler.
Chanel: So you wanna get all possessive now?
Tripp: I’m not being possessive.
Chanel: Sure feels like it. I said I wanted to help horton, and you got all weird.
Tripp: I just want you to understand that allie and i are together.
Chanel: Yeah, I get it. You’ve made it very clear.
Tripp: You sure?
Chanel: I said it the other morning after you slept over, didn’t I?
Tripp: You did, yeah. But saying is one thing. Accepting it is something else.
Chanel: What else do you want me to say?
Tripp: I just want you to be honest with me.
Chanel: Okay. Honestly…I don’t deny that there was something going on between horton and me, and that I was hoping maybe it would go somewhere. But she made her choice. And it’s not me.
Tripp: And you’re okay with that?
Chanel: I just want her to be happy. So no need to trip, tripp. You won’t get any trouble from me.
Tripp: Okay. Okay, I’m glad to hear that. Why don’t we head down to the station together?
Chanel: Good plan. But maybe you should put on some clothes first.
Tripp: Yeah, yeah.
Abe: That reward is beyond generous.
Paulina: Like I said, anything to bring ciara back home safe and sound.
Theo: Hopefully, someone’s seen her and calls the tip line.
Paulina: Mm-hmm. From your lips.
Lani: I thought I told you to leave my family alone. My dad and theo are trying to deal with the kidnapping of his fiancéE.
Paulina: I know that. I was just sharing my concern.
Lani: Well, they don’t need your concern. They have enough to worry about, paulina, especially after some fool took it upon themselves to post a reward.
Lani: No, theo. I know that you’re worried about ciara, but that is not helping. I’ve been pulling them down all over town.
Theo: Hold on. What’s wrong with a reward?
Lani: It is very unhelpful for a civilian to do this without consulting the police first, dad. If they wanted a reward, they would have requested one.
Theo: Lani, you should know–
Lani: No, you know, I really wish I knew who did this so i can tell them how wrongheaded it was.
Paulina: That would be your aunt paulina.
Ciara: Leftover chinese food for breakfast?
Ben: It was supposed to be our dinner last night.
Ciara: So that was your big plan? You were gonna kidnap me, bring me here and then serve me takeout. That’s nice.
Ben: It’s what we had on our first date.
Ciara: Mm. I remember. You told me about that. And then I told you that I don’t remember it and I don’t really care about it. Besides, seems like a pretty weak date anyway.
Ben: Well, it wasn’t the original plan.
Ciara: Oh, I know. I remember that too. You told me in very, very boring detail about how, uh, you tried to get a reservation at what used to be doug’s place, but my grandma julie wasn’t really in your corner at the time and blah, blah, blah. You know what? I really didn’t care about it then, and I certainly don’t care about it now, but you know what I do care about? Marrying theo. I love him very much, and I don’t want anything to come between us.
Ben: Not even the love of your life?
Ciara: Ugh! You know what? Fine, I will stay for one plate. And then I’m leaving. If you think all pads are exactly the same,…
Claire: Ohh… thank god you are here. I told you she’d come to our rescue.
Allie: Thank you, aunt belle.
Belle: Are you two okay?
Allie: Yeah, just a little tired. And I really have to go to my grandpa’s to get henry.
Belle: Okay. Well, I would love to take you both home with me when I leave here today.
Claire: Great. Let’s go.
Claire: Is there a problem?
Belle: Eli has assured me that he will release you. But first you have to tell him everything you know.
Allie: Everything we know about ben taking ciara?
Belle: Yes, you have to tell him where ben has taken her.
Claire: I’m sorry, but we can’t do that.
Ciara: Cold chinese food. Gross.
Ben: [Laughs] We used to have that argument all the time about leftovers. I thought the cold enhanced the flavor, and you called that barbaric.
Ciara: [Chuckles] Well, i actually agree with my old self on this one.
Ben: Hmm. I think you should try the general tso’s chicken. It was always our favorite. General tso’s chicken.
Ciara: Just like our first date.
Ben: I…it wasn’t exactly my plan, but… couldn’t get a table anywhere else in the damn town. Definitely not from your grandmother julie.
Ciara: Ha. No.
Ben: Or from your uncle roman.
Ciara: You know what, ben? We ended up having an amazing time.
Ben: And we had an amazing kiss.
Ciara: Yeah. You know, as my fortune cookie predicted.
Ben: Yeah, actually you made that up, though. And besides, you also said that fortune cookies were dumb.
Ciara: What? Me? Uh-uh. No, no, no. I love fortune cookies.
Ben: What we got?
Ciara: “Life is short. Eat dessert first.” I like this one.
[Laughs] You think I’ll take a few bites of the chicken and all of a sudden my memories are gonna start flooding back.
Ben: You never know. Could be like proust’s madeleine, you know, a taste that conjures up an emotional memory.
Ciara: Okay. Now you’re bringing proust into this.
Ben: I told you on our first date–I did a lot of reading alone as a kid.
Ciara: And I was impressed by that?
Ben: Mm. In all fairness, you were much more impressed with my mechanic skills.
Ciara: Mm, well, clearly your mechanic skills didn’t really amount to much, because you can’t even fix a limo.
Ben: Well, since you just gave me this beautiful broken ankle, it was a little bit of a hindrance.
Ciara: Look, I can see that you’re being all charming now with the chinese food and the proust, but it’s not gonna work. You can tell me that this cabin is our special place and you can feed me general who’s-he-what’s-it chicken…
Ciara: You can feed me his chicken till I’m blue in the face, but it’s not gonna make me magically fall in love with you again, ben.
Ciara: Okay what?
Ben: I am done forcing the issue. I committed a felony. I’m pretty sure I have a fractured bone. Think I’ve done all I can do here. So you finish your gourmet breakfast so you have enough energy to make it back to salem. I’m not gonna stand in your way.
Lani: You offered the reward?
[Laughs] I should’ve guessed.
Paulina: I wanted to help.
Lani: So, why just $100,000? I mean, lady gaga offered half a mil for her little frenchies. What? Paulina, you feeling cheap these days? Or maybe you’re just strapped from the fall of price town.
Paulina: I told you I was sorry about price town.
Lani: No, you mean you’re sorry that it didn’t happen.
Paulina: It was–it was a terrible idea. I just wanna make it up to everyone.
Lani: You’re just trying to buy forgiveness, especially my dad’S.
Paulina: That’s not true. If that reward can deliver some legitimate tips–
Lani: Stop, paulina. You already tried to buy your way into our family when you offered to pay for the twins’ college tuition.
Paulina: I did that because I love you.
Lani: You don’t know what love is…because you think it can be bought.
Paulina: Lani, please just–well, let me explain.
Lani: No. You don’t need to explain…because we know who you are and what you really care about. So take your money and go buy yourself some more designer clothes or whatever it is that you want because we don’t need your help. Before treating your chronic migraine,
Theo: Lani, it’s okay.
Lani: What is okay about this, theo?
Theo: I believe paulina was trying to help find ciara. She’s concerned about her.
Lani: No, she’s concerned about rehabbing her image in this town and trying to make us all forget that you just wanted to tear it down.
Paulina: Lani, just tell me what I can do.
Lani: Nothing. Because we see you for who you really are.
Paulina: I admit I made a terrible mistake, one that I wish that I could take back. But you gotta be so cold-hearted?
Lani: I’m trying to protect my dad and my brother from being taken advantage by you again.
Paulina: We’re family, lani.
Lani: No. I’ve already told you, my dad, theo, eli and the twins, they’re my family. You are nothing to us, paulina.
Lani: No, dad. Don’t try to make this better. Go, paulina.
Paulina: All right. I’m sorry I had intruded on a family crisis. My prayers will be that ciara is found.
Abe: That was uncalled for, lani.
Belle: Are you saying that you can’t tell eli where ben took ciara because you don’t know? Can I have a couple of minutes alone with my clients, please?
Eli: Okay. I’ll be right outside if you need me.
Belle: What were you two thinking?
Claire: Mom, we know what we’re doing.
Belle: No, I don’t think you do. You showed up at the church in a wedding dress pretending to be ciara. And allie, ciara’s phone rang inside your bag when theo called it. Now everyone in that church knows that you two were in on ben’s plot.
Claire: Okay, were not plotting–we were matchmaking, sort of.
Belle: Well, somehow I don’t think da trask is gonna see it that way.
Allie: How serious is this?
Belle: Well, if you’re charged with aiding and abetting a kidnapping, it’s gonna go on your permanent record. And eli has assured me he’ll take you straight to a holding cell.
Allie: He’s gonna lock us up?
Belle: Allie, if you two are convicted, you could go to prison. This isn’t a joke. Are you really willing to risk all of this for ben weston?
Ciara: Um, I’m gonna leave the food within reach so that you don’t have to kill yourself to get it.
Ben: Very thoughtful of you.
Ciara: And don’t worry, I will send for help as soon as I get back to civilization.
Ben: You don’t have to do that.
Ciara: No, I do. But I’m pretty sure once you get your ankle tended to, the police are gonna arrest you for kidnapping.
Ciara: Well, I wish I could say it’s been a pleasure. But instead I will just say this: Don’t you ever, ever pull anything like that ever again.
Ben: You don’t have to worry about that.
Ciara: What’s up?
Ben: You cannot leave here without having your fortune cookie.
Ciara: No. No, thanks, I’m good. I’m full. And the cookies taste like the paper that’s inside of them. I don’t really like them.
Ben: This has nothing to do with the taste. It’s about the fortune.
Ciara: Are you serious? Are we really gonna do that?
Ben: I mean, aren’t you even a little bit curious about what it says?
Ciara: No. Not even a little. And why do you care whether I read my fortune or not?
Ben: Maybe because it reminds me of our first date… how it ended. Good things come to those who wait.
Ciara: That’s kind of cliché, isn’t it?
Ben: Yeah. I’m hoping it’s true.
Ciara: So I’m a good thing?
Ben: You are a great thing. Why don’t you open up yours?
[Huffs] These things are so stupid anyways.
Ben: What? What’s it say?
Ciara: It says… it says that my date will end with a kiss. But we already knew that. So you based this all on a fortune cookie.
Ben: Our fortunes came true that day. Because I found the person I waited my whole life for. Someone smart, strong, caring. Someone good and decent, who inspires me to be good and decent, too. Someone who makes my life better by just being there. Someone who shines her light in the darkest places of my life. That’s why I’m doing this. That’s why I’m so determined to get you to remember what we once had, because we are meant to be together. As someone who resembles someone else…
Allie: Tripp, chanel.
Tripp: Are you okay?
Chanel: We were really worried.
Allie: How did you guys know we were here?
Chanel: I went by your place to get you to sign some paperwork for the bakery, and nicole told me you never came home.
Tripp: Yeah, she assumed that you were with me. And your grandfather told me what happened.
Allie: Is henry okay?
Tripp: Yeah, he’s fine.
Allie: Thank god. I’m really sorry I couldn’t call you.
Chanel: You’re helping them, right?
Belle: Yes, I’m trying.
Tripp: Okay. Can you go home now?
Eli: Allie and claire have chosen not to cooperate. So, no, they’ll be staying here with us.
Belle: It’s not too late to change your mind.
Allie: We’ll be okay.
Eli: If by okay means you don’t mind being locked up, then sure, let’s go, ladies.
Chanel: Wait, you’re taking them to jail?
Eli: They’ve given me no choice.
Tripp: This is crazy–we’ll get you out of this, I promise.
Allie: Just check in on henry for me, okay?
Eli: Let’s go.
Tripp: Belle, how are you letting this happen?
Chanel: You have to fix this.
Lani: Too hard on paulina? Dad, do I have to remind you that she has been playing us the entire time since she got to salem?
Abe: No, you don’T. But she was doing the right thing this time, and she was just trying to help.
Lani: Fine. You wanna give her the benefit of the doubt, go ahead. But I’m done with all that.
Theo: Okay, you two, can we please just focus on ciara? On bringing her home safe?
Abe: Yeah. I’m sorry, theo. You’re right. So why don’t we have breakfast, and then we can focus on trying to find her.
Theo: I told you, I don’t have time to waste with breakfast–every minute that I’m apart from ciara, ben is taking her further away from me.
Abe: That’s just not true.
Theo: It is, dad. I need to find ciara before I lose her forever.
Ciara: You’ve made it very clear that whatever we shared still means a lot to you, but I don’t feel it. And one stupid fortune cookie isn’t gonna change that.
Ben: I know the fortune cookie thing seems silly, but… ciara, what this is really about is fate.
Ben: When I thought you died in that explosion at the airfield, I would sometimes order chinese food just to feel closer to you again. One time our wedding photo fell over on top of a fortune cookie. I picked it up and I opened it. And it said, “nothing is ever lost if you follow your heart.” So that’s what I did. I followed my heart and I never stopped. I chased down every sign, no matter how silly they seemed, no matter how many people told me I was crazy or said that it was maybe just wishful thinking or I was in denial, I knew I wasn’T. Because I knew that you and i are connected. I could feel you out there, and I knew you were still alive. Just like I know right now somewhere inside of you you still love me. I’m trying. I’m trying so hard to reach you.
Ciara: After all that… you think that whatever’s in that fortune cookie is gonna make that happen?
Ben: I know it sounds crazy, but that is what I believe.
Ciara: Okay, um… if I open the cookie, do you promise that this is all gonna be over?
Ben: It’s gonna be the last thing I ask you.
Ciara: Okay. If this gets you to shut up once and for all, I will open the cookie.
Ben: What’s it say? Shingles?
Belle: Allie and claire know where ben took ciara and they’re not saying.
Tripp: Okay. So that’s what this is about, forcing them to tell what they know.
Belle: Yes, and if they don’t the da may press charges. And so I-I actually need to go talk to her.
Chanel: Allie can’t go to prison. She doesn’t deserve this.
Tripp: She must be so worried about henry right now.
Chanel: You’re her boyfriend. I’m her partner. We have to find some way to help her.
Lani: How does–thank you, dad. How does, um, theo seem to you?
Abe: Scared. But he’s holding it together, which is more than I can say for some people.
Lani: Are you talking about me?
Abe: [Laughs] You know, we’re all upset about price town. And nobody felt more betrayed than I did. But paulina… well, she owned her mistake, she let the project go at a substantial financial loss.
Lani: So I’m just supposed to forget about what she did, dad?
Abe: No, I didn’t say that. I know you love her, and she loves you. And I think she’s sincere in wanting to make amends. So why can’t you let her?
Paulina: Yes. Yes, I understand.
[Doorbell rings] I have to go. Hoo. Theo.
Theo: I’m so sorry that my sister was so hostile towards you.
Paulina: She feels betrayed.
Theo: I just wanna let you know that I really do appreciate you helping to find ciara.
Paulina: Honey, I think maybe I already did.
Ben: What’s it say?
Ciara: It just says “yes.” How is that a fortune?
Ben: That’s all that’s on there? Just one word?
Ciara: So much for fate, huh? I have to go. I don’t know how long it’s gonna take for someone to come get you, but I’m sure you’ll be fine.
Ciara: Goodbye, ben.
[Dramatic musical sting]
What’s going on?
Ben: You’re remembering. You’re remembering right now.
Ciara: No. No.
Ben: Yes, you are. Yes, you are. Then what’s wrong?
Ciara: Nothing. Nothing. Ben, I have to go.
Ben: Wait, wait. Don’t go! Don’t go! Ciara, do not go. Do not fight… ’cause I know you can feel it, I could tell. Oh, my god.
Ben: What does it say?
Ciara: [Gasps] Oh, my god.
