Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Rafe: I still have a pic of the perp’s license plate on my phone. I’ll text it to you as soon as I hang up. Okay.
[Cell phone beeps
Nicole: I just–I thought that you could be good for her, and you haveeen, and you wanna know what else I see?
Nicole: She’s been good for you. And I do not want to get in the way of that. I really don’T.
Rafe: Okay, look, you just ended your marriage.
Nicole: And you and ava just started something. And it’s like I just said to you. This is working for you and for her, and I just think that–I just think that you both should see where it could go. What happened that night was not your fault. I made a choice, and I’m–
[Sighs] I am making a choice now. I will miss you like crazy, but I can’t see you for a while. It’S…it’s best this way.
Ava: You look like you lost your best friend.
Paulina: Everyone in this town thinks of me as your great auntie paulina, but you can call me grandma. Don’t forget. It’s our little secret. Oh! I didn’t hear you come in.
Abe: Yeah, I know. What did you just say?
Brady: What is going on? Why are the cops here?
Chloe: No one will tell us anything.
Lani: Well, I am so sorry to be the one to tell you this, but there was a murder here tonight.
Chloe: Oh, god.
Brady: Not my granddad.
Chloe: Not philip.
[Knock at door]
Gabi: Ugh, you know what? I’ll just– philip, what are you doing here?
Philip: Why the hell are you spying on me?
Gabi: What are you talking about?
Philip: My laptop froze up tonight, so I took it to it to get checked out. Guess what they found? A keylogger! And I know it was you that put it there.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Lani: No. The victim’s name was calista lockhart.
Lani: Bonnie’s sister-in-law.
Brady: David lockhart had a sister?
Lani: Apparently. She was shot upstairs in justin’s bedroom.
Brady: Do they know who killed her?
Lani: We took bonnie in for questioning, but that’s all I can tell you at the moment.
Chloe: Oh, my god. Justin and bonnie were supposed to get married today.
Lani: Things didn’t go as planned. Typical salem wedding.
Chloe: Is the–is the body still upstairs?
Chloe: Okay, well, I’m gonna go talk to philip then.
Lani: Oh, no. He’s not there.
Chloe: Do you know where he is?
Lani: I don’T. I was actually on my way out. The csi is wrapping things up, and they shouldn’t be there much longer.
Chloe: Okay. Thanks, lani.
Lani: I am so sorry for ruining your homecoming.
Chloe: Oh, my goodness. I cannot believe that a woman was murdered down the hall from my bedroom.
Brady: Which is exactly why you’re gonna come home with me tonight.
Eli: We just booked bonnie lockhart. She’s in a holding cell. Man, that woman is a piece of work. Did she really think that she could hide a dead body in her fiancé’s bed, and no one would find out?
Rafe: Oh, come on. You can’t use the work “think” and bonnie in the same sentence.
Eli: I guess that’s true. Well, at least it all blew up before the ceremony. Justin dodged a bullet.
Rafe: And I guess the sister-in-law can’t say the same thing, huh?
Eli: [Mimics gunshot]
Rafe: Yeah. All right, listen, thanks again for handling that. I know that both you and lani were done with work and I called you back in, so I appreciate it, and I hope I didn’t pull you away from anything important.
Eli: No, no, we were just having dinner with paulina and abe.
Rafe: Oh. Sorry.
Eli: It’s all good. If anything, they were thrilled that we left and they got to spend some alone time with the twins.
Paulina: Oh. I thought you were doing the dishes.
Abe: Well, they’re done. So what did you say to the babies?
Paulina: Oh, you know, nighty-night, sleep tight.
Abe: I thought I heard you call yourself grandma.
Paulina: I did?
Abe: You did.
Paulina: Well, I, um– I guess I did.
Abe: Paulina, you know that you’re their great aunt and their grandmothers are valerie and tamara.
Paulina: I know that.
Abe: But why did you tell the– why’d you tell the kids to call you grandma?
Paulina: Abraham, I have a confession to make. I order my groceries online now.
Ava: Mind if I join you for a drink?
Nicole: Yeah, okay.
Ava: Great. I will catch up, and then I will pick up the next round.
Nicole: Oh, well, then please have a seat.
[Both laugh] Oh, and if things go according to plan, I will be able to get you your drinks for free in the near future.
Ava: Yeah, well, I just–I’m hoping that julie will hire me as her new chef here. I just dropped off my résumé in her office.
Nicole: Oh, I thought you wanted me to hire you at basic black.
Ava: I did. But I just–I think it would be awkward given the circumstances.
Nicole: Ava, I think you’re using “circumstances” as a euphemism. What you think might be awkward is working for a woman who you thought tried to steal your man.
Eli: Nice picture.
Rafe: I was looking for a photo for the myers case, and it just kinda popped up. Okay?
Rafe: Don’t you have some paperwork to do?
Eli: No, no. My desk is clear. What’s up with you, though? Any more conversations with duke?
Rafe: I am deeply sorry that I ever shared that with you.
Eli: [Laughs] Look, man, I’m glad you felt comfortable enough to share it with me.
Eli: Seriously, man, you have a picture of you and nicole on your phone. You’re in a crappy mood. What, is ava still ticked off about you and nicole?
Rafe: No, actually. She’s not.
Rafe: No. Because nicole and i are not gonna be seeing each other anymore.
Paulina: I’m sorry, but I need liquid courage.
Abe: Paulina? Are you okay?
Paulina: Not really. The reason that I wanted the babies to call me grandma is because… of tonight’s dinner.
Abe: Chicken milanese made you feel like a grandmother?
Paulina: Sort of. Sort of. I mean, when you got here this evening, I thought it was gonna be a disaster, but you were great. You started pulling food out of the fridge.
[Chuckles] And it was so much fun helping you cook. And then when eli and lani got here with those babies, you know, and, you know, spending time with our shared family just felt so comfortable, so right, and it got me thinking about the future and how you and I might get married someday.
Paulina: Yeah. That’s why, you know, I wanted them to call me grandma. Then I’d be their grandmother. By marriage, of course.
Abe: Of course.
Paulina: So that’s why I said they could call me grandma. You know me, always jumping the gun. Be good if you said something right about now. Abraham?
Chloe: Why would I go home with you?
Brady: Well, she just said that a woman was murdered right down the hall from you.
Chloe: Yeah, but I don’t think the police would let me stay here if there was any sort of danger, and you heard lani. They’ve got bonnie in custody.
Brady: What if justin gets her out? Bonnie seems to be going off the rails right now, and she does not like you at all.
Chloe: Hmm, I don’t really think that she would make bail and then come hunt me down and shoot me because, what, I didn’t get along with mimi in high school?
Brady: All right, well, forget about the physical danger. What about emotional? My god. I mean, you’re gonna try to sleep here tonight? Really? Knowing that a murder happened a couple doors down from you? It’s traumatic, don’t you think?
Chloe: Yeah, yeah. Brady, you–you’re right. Thank you. Thank you so much for being concerned with my mental health. I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence that the remedy proposed would keep me away from philip.
Brady: You really think I’d do something like that?
Chloe: Yeah, I know you’d do something like that. You literally just did something like that.
Brady: All right, all right. It was a stretch. Can’t blame a guy for trying.
Chloe: Yeah, actually, I can. Listen to me, brady. I don’t like being a rope in this tug-of-war between you and philip. It stopped being funny about two decades ago, and I want it to stop. Now.
Gabi: Philip, I have no idea who put that keylogger thing on your computer. I don’t even know what it is!
Philip: That’s too high tech for you? You put an app on your phone so you could remote control julie’s pacemaker. The keylogger’s a piece of cake for you!
Jake: Hey, watch it, okay?
Philip: No, no. She put a device on my computer to record every keystroke I make, and now you’re keeping track of my emails, my passwords, whatever I type?
Jake: You don’t know that.
Philip: I don’t?
Philip: Well, the first time my laptop froze up was right after I caught you in my office. You said you needed to use mine because yours wasn’t working.
Gabi: It wasn’t, and the monthly reports were due. You said you didn’t mind.
Philip: I would’ve minded if I had known you were installing spyware on my laptop.
Gabi: Philip, I work for you. We’re on the same team.
Philip: Yeah, that’s you, a real team player.
Gabi: Why would I do this?
Philip: To control the company. My mother called, and she said that’s what you two were up to. But it’s over. You’re both fired. Before treating your chronic migraine,
Brady: Chloe, I would love to stop fighting with philip. I really would, and I’m sure that’s gonna happen very soon, as soon as the guy grows up.
Chloe: Oh, you mean like you have? I don’t really see a difference in your behavior now versus when you were in high school.
Brady: Chloe, I’m young at heart.
Chloe: Another one-liner. You know what, everything’s just a joke to you, brady. Especially my relationship with philip.
Brady: You said it, not me.
Chloe: And I don’t think that you see, or maybe you just don’t care, that you are laughing at me. Not with me, but at me.
Brady: No. Hey, that was not my intention.
Chloe: Yes, it was!
Brady: No, I didn’t mean to–
Chloe: You cooked up this whole business trip just to get me away from philip and alone with you. You used my job to make me do what you wanted to do just to one-up philip.
Brady: Chloe, I didn’t cook anything up, first of all. Second of all, it was a legitimate meeting, one in which we crushed, by the way. Thank you. We’re a wonderful team.
Chloe: Yeah, we’re a wonderful team when you’re the owner, the coach, and the quarterback. Listen, you may think that this is some sort of a romantic comedy, but this is my life that you are messing with, and my career, and it is not funny. And how I feel about philip is no concern of yours. That should’ve been your cue to just say “I’m sorry” and go home.
Brady: I’m sorry. Chloe, I’M…I’m sorry. I will go. I will go. I just–I wanted to see my grandfather to make sure he was okay.
Chloe: Okay, but make it quick, ’cause I don’t want philip getting back here and us reliving some nightmare scenario like what happened at wilkes-barre.
Brady: As I recall, it was philip that barged in like some outraged husband in some french farce, but, you know– sorry, old habit.
Chloe: Yeah. Very, very old.
Gabi: Philip, you are making a huge mistake. Jake and I had nothing to do with that keylogger.
Philip: Oh, come on, i practically caught you red-handed.
Gabi: I would never betray you like that.
Philip: “I would never betray you like that.” That’s exactly what you did. You see something you want, you’d run over your own grandmother with a tractor to get it.
Gabi: You and I are friends. In fact, we were almost more than that.
Jake: Okay, thanks for the reminder.
Philip: So I’m gonna have your personal effects packed up and sent to you. I believe this is titan property.
Jake: Okay. Wait. Wait, wait. Just a minute. Think about this for a second. Gabi’s computer was acting up, right? That’s why she had to use your computer.
Philip: So she says.
Jake: Okay, so what if somebody put spyware on her computer too? It could be a company-wide hack, and if somebody put spyware on her computer, then that means–that proves that gabi is not the perpetrator but yet another victim. Call it; I’m sure they can check it out remotely.
Gabi: But what if the hacker was just trying to target philip?
Jake: Gabi, we’ve already lost our jobs. We’ve got nothing left to lose. Look, it’s just a theory, but if somebody is trying to hack your company and it’s not us, don’t you think you’d wanna know who it is?
Eli: It sounds like you and ava had a pretty intense fight, huh?
Rafe: Yeah, well, you know ava. She’s pretty easily worked up, and she’s kind of a jealous person, and my sister, gabi, has been poking at her, so yeah. It was intense.
Eli: What happened when you told nicole about the fight?
Rafe: Nicole was actually cool about it. She pretty much saw eye to eye with everything that ava thought.
Rafe: Mm-hmm, yeah. So much so that nicole thought it’d be a good idea that we not see each other, you know, until ava and I work things out, which I thought was a little bit extreme, but now I think maybe she’s right. Yeah, ava needs to know that I care about her more than nicole.
Eli: Well, I’m sure ava was happy to hear that.
Rafe: Yeah, she almost didn’t hear it. When I came home, lights at my place were out, and ava was sitting there with her suitcase packed.
Eli: That’s what you wanted to come home to.
Rafe: Mm-hmm. Yeah, yeah. It was the third intense relationship conversation that I had for the day.
Eli: My god. I know you were exhausted and ticked off.
Rafe: Yeah, I was, a little bit at first. You know, ’cause it seemed a little dramatic.
Rafe: But then actually, I saw how hurt ava was, and she made it clear that she did not want to be with me if I wanted to be with nicole.
Eli: Is that what you told her?
Rafe: Well, I was– I was honest. I told her that my friendship with nicole had, you know, kinda become more than a friendship.
Eli: And how did she take that?
Rafe: Well, not great, as you can imagine, right? But I was able to convince ava that I wanted to be with her, not nicole.
Eli: And was that honest too?
Nicole: Rafe told me what you said about him, about me.
Ava: Look, I never said that–I never thought that you set out to get him, just that the two of you turned into more than just friends.
Nicole: Look, ava, I was nuts. I probably still am. And yes, I leaned on rafe way too much, and that wasn’t fair to you, but rafe was just being a friend to me. That’s all.
Ava: No, it wasn’T.
Nicole: Damn it. Look, rafe had no interest in me romantically. That was all in your head.
Ava: No, it isn’T.
Nicole: All right, you know what? Suddenly, I’m not very thirsty.
Ava: Nicole, it’s true! Rafe told me himself.
Paulina: Why won’t you say something?
Abe: Are you thinking about us getting married?
Paulina: I should never have told you. Now I’ve scared you off.
Abe: No. No, you haven’T. The idea has crossed my mind.
Paulina: Are you telling me you wanna marry me? This is the sound of an asthma attack…
Rafe: Yeah, of course I was being honest. I care about ava, and I wanna make things work with her.
Eli: Even if it means giving up on nicole? She’s not married anymore.
Rafe: That doesn’t mean she wants to jump into another relationship. And besides, I don’t even know if she’s interested in this.
Eli: Maybe she is.
Rafe: Doesn’t matter. Okay? I have made up my mind, and that’s it.
Eli: All right, it is what it is. Look, I’m–I’m happy for you and ava. It just sucks that you had to lose a friend in the process.
Nicole: Rafe said that?
Ava: He said that. I was ready to leave.
Ava: Look, I told him that i wanted to be with him, but not if he wanted to be with you. That’s when he admitted that I was right.
Nicole: I didn’t know.
Ava: Yeah. It’s the one time in my life that I wished I had been wrong and that it was actually all in my head.
Nicole: I’m so sorry.
Ava: It’s okay. It’s okay. We talked, honestly for once, and he told me that he would put those feelings behind him and that I was the one he wanted. So we kissed and we made up.
Nicole: Good. I’m glad.
Ava: Yeah. Like I said, you know, it was good because we talked and we were really honest with each other, and I’m just hoping that you and I can do the same thing.
Nicole: What do you mean?
Ava: Nicole, I need to know. How do you feel about rafe?
Brady: You’re right. I should not interfere in your personal business, chloe.
Chloe: Yeah, I know. I am right.
Brady: All right, then I’m just gonna go see if my granddad’s okay.
Chloe: Okay, well, give him my best.
Brady: I’ll do that. Chloe, listen. This is not a ploy. Are you gonna be okay here alone?
Chloe: Yeah. I’m okay.
Brady: Do you even know when philip is coming home?
Chloe: No, we haven’t spoken since wilkes-barre. He knew that I was upset with him, so he’s giving me some space, but I think that he’s learned his lesson.
Chloe: [Sighs] At least I hope he has.
Gabi: This isn’t gonna work. You can’t just bluff your way out of this like a poker game.
Jake: Trust me on this.
Gabi: When that it guy sees that my computer is clean, he’s gonna be convinced that I’m the hacker. It’s gonna blow up in our faces.
Philip: Thanks, gunther.
Gabi: Look, philip, it was just a thought.
Philip: You were right. They found a keylogger on her laptop too.
Jake: Meaning she’s not the one who hacked yours.
Philip: I’m gonna have it check out the computers of all the executives. So now the question is, who did this?
Jake: Dimera. Chad and ej are pissed I switched teams.
Philip: I wouldn’t put it past ’em.
Gabi: You know what, though? If they hacked gabi chic, it could be basic black, but I don’t see nicole doing something like this. Philip, wait, you don’t think…
Philip: It’s brady. To be a thriver
Abe: Well, I’m not saying that we should get married tomorrow, but I have thought about it.
Paulina: Well, I knew you’ve been married before, and I wasn’t sure if you ever wanted to do it again.
Abe: Yeah. Well, it’s been ten years since I lost lexie, and I still miss her.
Paulina: Of course you do. It was a happy marriage, wasn’t it?
Abe: For 20 years. But I told myself that if I ever got married again, it would have to be to someone very special.
Paulina: That doesn’t rule me out?
Abe: [Chuckles] You know, we’ve had some… we’ve had some rocky moments, but I feel the same way you feel about tonight. It just–it just felt right. And, well, if things keep going in this direction, I could see getting married.
Paulina: [Chuckles] Well, we’ll take it nice and easy. How about a week from thursday?
[Both laugh] Oh, abe. Wait, I just want you to know, I think that you are worth waiting for. Ooh.
[Both laugh] How about a week from friday?
Nicole: Ava, I don’t feel that way about rafe.
Ava: Are you sure?
Nicole: Yes, I’m positive. Why do you keep asking me that?
Ava: It’s just that, you know, you and rafe, you were so close, and I just– I need to know where I stand.
Nicole: Yes, but I told him that we couldn’t see each other for a while because I was screwing things up for you guys, and I’m sorry about that, but you have–you don’t have to worry about me, at all.
Ava: Okay. I appreciate that. I do, and I do think it’ll be best for the time being for the two of you just not to see each other. And I’m sorry. I’m so sorry about that.
Nicole: Oh, please. Don’t be. Not seeing rafe is not a problem for me. Okay?
Gabi: [Sighs] My nerves are shot. I thought we were done for.
Jake: Oh, ye of little faith.
Gabi: Talk about faith. You put that spyware on my laptop, didn’t you? It was only you that could’ve done that. You were spying on me spying on philip.
Jake: I was protecting you. Remember all the time I spent at the mansion?
Jake: Well, I finally figured out why the old man taught all the kids chess. He was teaching them to think of the move after the move after the present move.
Gabi: You put that keylogger on my laptop in case philip found the one I put on his.
Jake: I knew philip was going to accuse you first, so we had to be ready for him.
Gabi: Why didn’t you tell me?
Jake: I figured you already had enough on your plate.
Gabi: Or you like having the means to check up on me.
Jake: [Chuckling] Oh, gabi. You have a suspicious mind.
Gabi: Hell, I would’ve done the same thing. You know what, here’s to the man that saved our jobs. You’re lucky that I use a website to access the keylogger program, or else it would’ve found out that I’m the hacker when they checked my laptop.
Jake: What, you think I didn’t know that? It’s a pretty genius move.
Gabi: If you do say so yourself.
Jake: I do. In fact, it’s the move the future ceo of titan would make, don’t you think? Huh?
Chloe: Hey. How’s victor?
Brady: He wasn’t resting. He just wanted to get away from the police. He was afraid that they would arrest him for excessive celebration.
Chloe: Oh, no, you’re not saying that he’s actually enjoying bonnie’s plight?
Brady: He said that watching bonnie be taken out of his house in handcuffs was as beautiful as the winged victory.
Chloe: Aw, the old sweetie.
Brady: Yeah, it’s justin I’m worried about, though.
Chloe: Yeah, today was supposed to be such a joyful day.
Brady: Yeah. Oh, my gosh, you know what– you know what a couple days from now is?
Chloe: Our wedding anniversary.
Brady: Yeah, it’s–yeah. I was very happy that day. And you–I remember lifting your veil, and your smile was very–it was beautiful.
Brady: And, uh, remember that night? The little cottage.
[Sighs] I know you remember that.
Chloe: Yeah, of course. Of course I remember.
Philip: Chloe, henderson just told me– you son of a bitch! Is struggling to manage your type 2 diabetes
Gabi: I am not gonna have this discussion with you again. I am the future ceo of titan. I planned this from the beginning.
Jake: And if not for me, that plan would’ve gotten us fired. Face it, like I said, I’m a genius.
Gabi: You know what’s genius? Me shifting blame so philip thinks it’s brady.
Jake: That was not a half bad pivot.
Gabi: It was brilliant, especially after that email that philip drafted. He’s already crazy jealous of brady. Did you see the look in his eye when I said that it was brady behind that spyware?
Jake: Yeah. He looked mad enough to kill.
Philip: I know what you did, and you’re never gonna get away with it.
Chloe: Philip, please, please, do not do this. Brady just gave me a lift home. When we got here, there was cops everywhere.
Philip: I’m not talking about him stalking you. I’m talking about him trying to take away my company.
Philip: He put spyware on my computer…
Philip: And gabi’s too.
Brady: Philip, no, I did not.
Philip: Don’t deny it. You were trying to undermine me.
Brady: You’re doing that all on your own.
Philip: My lawyers are looking into it, brady, and once we have the proof, I’m gonna put your ass in prison for corporate espionage.
Brady: Philip, you’re not gonna find any proof because i didn’t do it.
Chloe: Okay, brady, please, can you just give us a moment alone?
Brady: Sure, I’d love to. I don’t need this. Philip, you should consider getting some help, man.
Philip: You’re gonna pay for this!
Philip: You heard what he did. You have to stop working for him. Now.
Eli: How are the kids? Did they give aunt paulina and abe any trouble?
Lani: Nope. Not at all. When I picked them up, they were in a really good mood.
Eli: Well, it is a pleasure to spend time with our babies.
Lani: If only all children were as perfect as ours. You want a beer?
Eli: Yes, I want a beer. Oh, okay.
Lani: How was the station?
Eli: Oh, bonnie is a mess.
Lani: I cannot believe that she stole a million dollars and shot her sister-in-law. Like, what was the reason for it?
Eli: I don’t know. She clammed up in the car.
Lani: Yeah, but what did rafe say?
Eli: Well, I gave him the file, but he seemed distracted.
Lani: Rafe is never distracted.
Eli: He’s dealing with some personal issues, but I think he’s got it all settled out now.
Ava: Hey. Hi.
Ava: Well, this is a surprise.
Rafe: Well, yeah, I figured you’d be dropping off your résumé and thought I’d stop by and maybe we could have dinner, but I’m interrupting.
Nicole: No, no. You’re not.
Nicole: Actually, I was just leaving. Thank you for the drink.
Ava: It’s my pleasure. It was good to see you.
Nicole: You too. Have a nice dinner.
Rafe: Thanks. Okay. As someone who resembles someone else…
Eli: So how does it feel to be back on the job?
Lani: Exhausting. I am just so glad that aunt paulina and dad made dinner and it saved us from pigging out on stakeout food.
Eli: Yeah, dinner was nice. Pleasant. I’m glad that paulina and abe worked things out and got back together.
Paulina: I never thought this evening would turn out so well.
Abe: Well, I knew.
Abe: Mm-hmm. You know, life has many more surprises with you around.
Paulina: Is that good?
Abe: Oh, that is very, very good.
Abe: I love you.
Paulina: I love you, too.
Gabi: We have to keep pushing philip to go after brady. He’s gonna take it too far, and then that’s when victor’s gonna fire him.
Jake: And we’ll be right there ready to take over.
Gabi: To victory.
Jake: To us.
Chloe: You want me to quit my job.
Philip: Look, what brady did is illegal. You don’t wanna get mixed up with that guy when I take him down.
Chloe: You don’t have any proof.
Philip: Not yet.
Chloe: I don’t think he did it.
Philip: I know he did.
Chloe: Okay, well, I’m not quitting until you can prove it.
Philip: Well, that’s up to you.
Chloe: Oh, well, that’s very nice of you to acknowledge that.
Philip: But when it turns out that I’m right, I want you to leave that job and brady for good.
Chloe: Okay, but if you are wrong, I don’t want to hear a word about brady ever again. Okay?
Brady: Fancy seeing you here.
Nicole: Oh. I thought you were in new york.
Brady: I was. Chloe and I, we closed the deal. With the client. With the client.
Nicole: Great, great.
Brady: How you doing? You look kinda down.
Nicole: That’s why I’m eating my feelings.
Brady: You mind if I get in on that? Thank you.
Rafe: So what were you and nicole talking about?
Ava: Oh, well, she was just telling me how she never wants to come between the two of us, and I was thanking her for stepping out of the picture. You still okay with that?
Rafe: Yeah. I told you I was. Maybe we can just put this old topic to rest?
Ava: Of course. I am gonna go freshen up.
Rafe: All right.
