Days of Our Lives Transcript

Rafe: And I shouldn’t have said anything about ej. It’s just, the guy is such A… every time I think about you two or see you two together, I just get so damn…
Nicole: So damn what?
Nicole: Don’t do that, rafe. Don’t say that. You can’T. You are with ava.
Rafe: I know, but…
Nicole: But what?
Ej: [Clears throat] Am I interrupting something?
Philip: What the hell?
Brady: Take it easy. I can explain, philip.
Philip: I don’t want to hear a damn thing you have to say.
Johnny: Hey, allie.
Allie: Hi. Look, if you’re here to see chanel, she’s working. So please don’t bother her.
Johnny: I’m here to see you.
Allie: What’s that?
Johnny: That is a contract. Once you sign that, it’s gonna be official. Allie horton is sami brady in “possessed: The marlena evans story.”
Devil voice: Excellent. You’re finally starting to let go. You’re almost there, marlena. We have already achieved so much together. If you let me back in, there will be no limit to what we can accomplish. But we cannot delay. Our time is now. I need you to be mine, tonight.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Allie: I thought grandpa roman pulled his financing.
Johnny: He did.
Allie: Okay, so then how is this movie still being made? I mean, I thought you couldn’t make it without his investment.
Johnny: Yeah, that’s what I thought. But I got the money somewhere else.
Johnny: My father.
Nicole: Hi, ej. No, you were not interrupting anything. I just bumped into rafe, and he offered to share a doughnut from allie’s bakery.
Ej: That’s strange.
Rafe: What’s strange? The doughnuts are amazing.
Ej: I’m sure they are. But I thought you and nicole were trying to stay away from each other.
Ben: What are you wondering, my love?
Ciara: I’m wondering if we just made a baby.
[Sighs] Ben? Are you okay?
Marlena: Oh, hi. What time is it?
John: I let you sleep in a little.
Marlena: Yeah, and you’ve brought me breakfast, I see.
John: And tea. Hot this time. How are you feeling, honey?
Marlena: Um, I’m not sure. I had an upsetting dream.
John: Another one?
Marlena: Yeah, another one.
John: Any idea what this one was about?
Marlena: Yeah, unfortunately.
John: Oh. Want to tell me about it?
Marlena: I was… levitating.
Marlena: Levitating. Right here. Right here. Right off the bed.
[Sighs] It seemed so real.

Chloe: Oh my god, brady. Are you all right?
Brady: Yeah, I’m fine.
Chloe: What the hell is wrong with you? Have you lost your mind?
Philip: You were in his arms. Again! You keep saying over and over that you guys are just working together.
Chloe: We are.
Philip: You keep saying that. You keep insisting that he’s not coming after you.
Chloe: Because he’s not.
Philip: Then what did I just walk in on?
Chloe: Brady trying to be a friend.
Philip: I think he wants a little more than friendship. I think he wants to take you away from me. And somehow I’m the bad guy. He’s lucky one punch is all he got.
Ben: Sorry. I was just putting the candles away and got reminded of that weird thing that happened last night.
Ciara: Hmm. Yes, that was pretty weird. But we agreed that it was just a random gust of wind, right?
Ben: We did. Yeah.
Ciara: Okay, so you’re not reading anything into it? Right?
Ciara: Good. Because I think we had an amazing night last night.
Ben: We did.
Ciara: So you’re not second-guessing us trying to have a baby?
Ben: Oh, no.
Ciara: Good. I’m very glad to hear that. Well, I should probably get going.
Ben: Wait, wait. You got someplace special to be or…
Ciara: Actually, I do. As much as I loved our wedding and our honeymoon and lounging around in bed with you trying to have a baby, I think it’s about time for me to get a job.
Rafe: What’s the point, ej? Nicole didn’t do anything wrong.
Ej: I never suggested she did. I’m being supportive. I know how committed she is to doing the right thing. And that ava’s her friend. I know that she doesn’t want to make any trouble.
Rafe: Well, there’s not gonna be any trouble unless you cause it.
Nicole: Okay, guys, we don’t need to talk about this.
Rafe: I’d actually like to hear what he has to say.
Ej: You sure? Because the way I see it, nicole is trying to move on and you won’t let her. I wonder how your girlfriend would feel about what I just saw.
Allie: Your dad has been against the idea of this movie since the beginning.
Allie: So what? He just decided to accept it and wants to invest?
Johnny: Pretty much. Yeah.
Allie: All right, this doesn’t sound like ej. He doesn’t do anything unless there’s something in it for him.
Johnny: Yeah. Who says there isn’t? He did have one demand in order to give me the money.
Allie: Which was?
Johnny: He wants a role in the movie.
Allie: Really? What role?
Johnny: He wants to play grandpa john.
John: Remember anything else about the dream?
Marlena: Yes. While… while I was… levitating, there was somebody talking to me.
John: Okay. Who was it?
Marlena: I didn’t see him, but I could hear him so clearly. I could–I could hear him as clearly as I hear you right now.
John: Okay. Recognize the voice?
Marlena: Well, I…
[Inhales deeply] I hadn’t heard it for so many years. But I do know exactly who it is.
Marlena: It… it… it’s satan. It’s the devil. This is the sound of an asthma attack…
Allie: Your father is a lawyer and the ceo of a major corporation.
Johnny: Co-ceo, but yes, point taken.
Allie: Why would he want to play john black in your movie?
Johnny: Because abigail is playing grandma marlena.
Johnny: He’s doing it to piss off uncle chad because chad wouldn’t back him up when he was trying to convince me to work at dimera.
Allie: Right. And you’re cool with this?
Johnny: He’s not my first choice, no. But the important thing is, I get to make my movie. So I need you to sign.
Allie: I can’T.
Johnny: Is there a problem?
Allie: Yes, there is a problem. The problem is that grandpa john is not on board with this project at all. And neither is grandpa roman. I mean, they asked you to cut the possession part of the story, and instead you made it the entire movie.
Johnny: Allie, this is an important story that needs to be told. I’m not exploiting grandma and grandpa. If anything, it honors her strength and the strength of their love story.
Allie: Okay, I’ll tell you what. I will act in your movie if you get direct permission from grandma marlena.
Johnny: [Chuckles] So you’ll do it if she says yes?
Allie: I will. And if she’s not okay with it, then neither am I.
Johnny: Oh, don’t worry. She will be.
John: Hey, here’s the deal. Try not to think about it. It’s just a damn dream. What you need to focus on is taking care of yourself. And of course, your patients. Doug and julie, they’re gonna need you to be at the top of your game, and I know how concerned you were about ben last night.
Marlena: Oh, yes, I was concerned about ben.
Devil voice: Ben and ciara’s child is so important for the future. I want that baby. I need that baby for myself.
John: Doc, what’s going on? What’s wrong?
Marlena: I need to get out.
John: Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Now? Are you sure?
Marlena: Yeah. Yeah. I need to get to ben right now. I’m gonna shower and then go see ben.
Ben: So last time you mentioned this, you were thinking about going back to get your job at titan. Is that what you’re still thinking?
Ciara: That is exactly what I’m thinking. I’m gonna go see my grandfather today.
Ben: Good luck with that.
Ciara: Well, grandpa victor is not leaving that room until he gives me the answer that I want.
Ben: Ooh, he’s not gonna know what hit him.
Ciara: [Laughs] Mm.
[Giggles] Okay. I have to go. I do, but save that thought for later. And maybe we can have another go at trying to have a baby. Okay?
Brady: You know, you sound like a crazed idiot.
Philip: Right. Because you’re perfectly innocent. Just a nice supportive friend with no ulterior motives at all.
Brady: I’m not even gonna bother trying to explain myself to you.
Philip: I don’t need you to explain yourself. I know what you’re up to.
Brady: I was trying to set the record straight.
Chloe: I told you there’s no point.
Brady: Clearly. Maybe all that’s left to do is to hit you twice as hard as you hit me, huh.
Philip: Go ahead. Go ahead. I’m standing right here.
Brady: Philip– no, I’m gonna take the high road on this one. Listen, get your ass out of my office, or I’m gonna have security throw you out, all right?
Rafe: Is it fun being a troll, ej?
Ej: I’m just asking questions.
Rafe: You’re inserting yourself into something that’s none of your business. And you’re trying to make everyone uncomfortable while you’re doing it.
Ej: The only person making nicole uncomfortable is you.
Rafe: How dare you judge me? After the way that you have treated every single woman you’ve ever gone out with, including nicole… well, it’s no wonder things didn’t work out with you and sami.
Ej: [Chuckles] Remind me how I’m the bad guy here. I gave you and your live-in girlfriend a $300 bottle of wine to smooth things over.
Rafe: Never asked for it.
Ej: Which makes it an even bigger gesture. A thank you would have been nice.
Rafe: For what?
Ej: I got nicole out of a very tense situation at julie’s place the other night. Not to mention saving your ass.
Rafe: Oh, everything was just fine.
Ej: Everything was not fine. And now here you are mooning over her in a public place.
Nicole: Okay, he wasn’t mooning.
Ej: Wake up, nicole. He is playing silly games with both you and ava.
Rafe: That’s enough. You know what you can do with your $300 bottle of wine?
Ej: Tell me. Your mission:
Nicole: Stop it. Stop it, both of you.
Rafe: You know he deserves it.
Ej: Deserves what? Oh, you want to hit me, commissioner?
Rafe: You have no idea how much.
Ej: Go ahead. I think I see someone over there with their phone filming. How great will it be when a video of the commissioner assaulting a citizen goes viral?
Nicole: Ej, stop it now.
Rafe: It might just be worth it.
Nicole: Stop. Rafe, just–just go.
Ej: Well, that was fun. Lucky I came along when I did.
Nicole: I really wish you hadn’T.
Philip: Now, chloe, please. Let’s go somewhere where we can talk alone.
Chloe: You should leave.
Brady: You really should. My security team, they play pretty rough.
Philip: All right, I’m gonna go. I’m gonna go home. We’ll talk about this later.
Chloe: I’m so sorry. Are you sure that you’re all right?
Brady: Yeah, yeah, chloe, I’m fine, I’m fine. I’m just–you know, what I’m upset about is the way he’s treating you.
Chloe: Yeah. Well, like I was saying before he came charging in here, I think you may have been right about him all along.
Brady: I wish I wasn’T.
Chloe: I don’t think he knows how to change. I think it’s up to me to fix this.
John: Hey, johnny. Come on in, kid.
Johnny: Can I talk to grandma?
John: Well, kid, I’m afraid you just missed her. Maybe I can help. What’s it about?
Johnny: It’s about the movie. I got the money I needed from my dad.
John: Ej? Gotta be kidding me. I thought he was against that project from the beginning.
Johnny: He changed his mind. He decided to support my vision as a writer/director.
John: I see; so what, he signed on as a producer?
Johnny: And an actor as well, yeah.
John: What? What role is he playing?
John: You can’t be serious.
Johnny: Anyway, I’ve got the casting all set. The financing is secured. I just have one more thing I need to take care of.
John: Mm-hmm, and what would that be?
Johnny: Allie won’t sign on to play my mom without grandma’s permission.
John: Well, kiddo, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. ‘Cause there’s no way in hell she’s ever gonna give you that.
Ciara: Well, hello, hello.
Ciara: What do you recommend for buttering up my stubborn old grandpa?
Allie: Hmm. Well, that would be a job for a buttery almond tart with chocolate drizzle.
Ciara: Oh, good idea.
Allie: So what do you need from victor?
Ciara: Well, I actually want my old job back at titan. Hopefully that’ll put me and ben in a good financial situation for when we have our baby.
Allie: A baby? Wait, is that actually happening?
Ciara: Yeah, we hope so.
Allie: Wait, so what happened to ben’s doubts? I mean, last time we talked, you were afraid he might never want kids.
Ciara: Yeah, well, he was afraid of passing on his mental illness to our kids, but he actually talked to your grandma, and she helped him work through all of his issues.
Allie: Wow, grandma marlena to the rescue.
Ciara: Yeah. I owe her big time. He feels a lot better about the situation after the session. And we went right down to it.
Allie: By right down to it, you mean…
Ciara: I mean I threw away my birth control pills and we got right down to it.
Allie: I love that for you.
Ciara: Thank you.
Allie: Wow, so all it took was one session with my grandma. I wonder what she said to him.
Ben: Dr. Evans, hi.
Marlena: Hi. I’m sorry to come by unannounced. I just know that you were a little conflicted after our last session, and I just wanted to make sure that you were all right.
Ben: Thank you. Yeah, I really appreciate that. And for coming by. Please come in.
Marlena: Oh, thank you.
Marlena: Oh, cute.
Ben: It’s not much, but it’s home.
Marlena: Yeah. Well, how are you?
Ben: I took your advice. Ciara and I made the decision together that we are ready to have a child. She even threw away her birth control pills last night.
Marlena: Oh. Well, that’s a very big step.
Ben: Yeah. It is a big step. And we took it, thanks to you. You know something? Even after we were together, we both had this, like, strange feeling that we made a baby.
Marlena: Wow, that’s wonderful.
Ben: Yeah, yeah. I was feeling really hopeful. Until…
Marlena: Until what?
Ben: This really strange thing happened. The wind blew, and it knocked open the windows and it blew out all the candles.
Marlena: Why was that strange?
Ben: Well, first of all, the night was completely calm weather-wise, and second of all, when the wind entered the room, it put this, like, cold shiver through my entire body.
Marlena: A cold shiver.
Ben: Yeah. Yeah. I know it sounds kind of silly. I was just afraid that maybe it could have been, like, an omen.
Marlena: Hmm. Maybe it was.
Ben: What do you mean?
Marlena: I will not allow you to use ben.
Devil voice: What are you doing?
Marlena: What I have to do. I’m going to warn him.
Devil voice: You will do no such thing.
Ben: Dr. Evans? Do you actually think that the wind could have been, like, a sign that ciara and I shouldn’t have a baby? Counting your veggies can be hard.
Ben: I know it doesn’t make sense, but should I be worried about that strange feeling I got when the wind blew through here?
[Cell phone chimes] Oh, do you need to take that?
Marlena: No, no, no. I came to talk to you.
[Cell phone chimes] I mean, it could be a patient that needs you. It’s okay. Please.
Devil voice: Don’t even think about telling him, marlena. My plans for ben’s child are for you and me alone.
Ben: What is it, dr. Evans?
Ciara: Whatever your grandma said, it must have been very persuasive because he left thinking that he did not want to have children, and he came back and was very open to the idea.
Allie: So he’s not worried at all anymore?
Ciara: No, he still has his doubts. But he said that whatever happens happens, and we will get through it together.
Allie: Oh, you and ben are gonna be such great parents.
Ciara: I think so. I really do. I just hope that I’m not, like, pressuring him into doing something that he doesn’t want to do, you know?
Allie: Yeah, but, you know– I mean, if he’s still unsure, I can guarantee you that when you actually have the baby in your life, all of that’s gonna go away. I mean, he’s going to fall in love with that child, just like I did with my little henry.
Ciara: I hope so. Well, I better get these to my grandfather so that ben and I have a way to support this hypothetical baby of ours.
Allie: Well, good luck with everything.
Ciara: Thank you.
Chloe: Oh, man, I can’t believe how many times we’ve been through this. Philip goes too far and he explodes with jealousy. And then he apologizes and promises he’ll never do it again. And I give him another chance.
Brady: And then he blows it again.
Chloe: Wash, rinse and repeat.
Brady: You do understand it’s not getting better. It’s getting worse, chloe. You can see that he’s starting to lose more control, right?
Chloe: I see it. Yeah.
Brady: What are you gonna do?
Chloe: [Sighs] I don’t–I don’t know. But all I know is, I need to do something now before somebody gets really hurt.
Nicole: Rafe was right. You were acting like a troll. And a jerk.
Ej: I thought I was doing a good thing. You told me you wanted to get over rafe. I mean, what if I hadn’t come along? What would have happened?
Nicole: I don’t know.
Ej: I do. Is that really what you want, nicole? To be making out with ava’s boyfriend in a public place?
Nicole: Of course not.
Ej: Exactly. I wasn’t just saving you from rafe, but from yourself. On the outside, I looked fine.
Nicole: I don’t need to be saved from rafe or myself. But you did stop me from doing something that I might have regretted.
Nicole: But you at least have to admit you could have handled that differently.
Ej: [Clears throat] Granted. The man does get under my skin.
Nicole: And you love getting under his.
Ej: A fella’s got to have hobbies. I’m sorry. But I am on your side, nicole.
Nicole: I know.
Ej: And I was right about what I saw, wasn’t I? You were about to kiss rafe.
Rafe: Allie. Hi there.
Allie: Hi. Is everything okay? Is something wrong with the doughnuts?
Rafe: No, no. No, the doughnuts were delicious. I still haven’t actually brought them into work yet. I had a little run-in with your stepfather.
Rafe: You know, I almost forgot what a piece of work ej is.
Allie: We are in agreement on that one. What did he do?
Rafe: You know, it’s not even worth talking about. You know, we never really got along.
Allie: Because of mom.
Rafe: Mostly, yeah, but… have you spoken with her?
Allie: No, she’s been pretty incommunicado recently. I don’t know; johnny’s been trying to get in touch with her too, but…
Rafe: Oh, yeah? You think everything’s okay?
Allie: Who knows? I mean, it’s probably better she isn’t around anyway. I’m not sure how she would feel about me playing her in johnny’s movie.
John: Look, kid, I know how talented you are. And I really think that you’ve got a great career ahead of you here, but this is not the movie that you want to make.
Johnny: Why can’t you just try reading the script?
John: I lived it. I don’t need to read it. And I definitely don’t want your grandmother to have to read it.
Johnny: Why not?
John: Because it’d just upset her. It already has.
Johnny: What do you mean?
John: We talked about your movie last night. Marlena goes to bed and she has a nightmare that really shook her up.
Johnny: What kind of nightmare?
John: She dreamed that she was levitating off the bed.
Johnny: Like she did 25 years ago?
John: And she heard the devil’s voice in her head. You see, this movie is bringing back horrible memories. Trust me, johnny, you don’t want to put her through this.
John: I’m serious, kid. If you really love your grandmother, prove it. By dropping this whole project right now.
Ben: Who was that text from?
Marlena: Doesn’t matter. I came here to talk to you about the omen.
Ben: Do you actually think that the wind blowing out all the candles like that is a bad sign?
Marlena: What I didn’t say to you was that I’m thinking of this as a good omen.
Devil voice: Ease his mind, marlena. Tell him his baby will be a gift to the world.
Marlena: Don’t you worry. See, I think with all the love you and ciara have to give a child, I think this baby would be good for everybody.
Devil voice: [Laughs] Especially me.
Ben: Thank you, dr. Evans, seriously, for always being there to help me and coming by to check on me. Thank you.
Marlena: It was my pleasure.
Ben: I’ll see you out. Thank you again.
Ciara: Hey, philip. Is your father around?
Philip: He’s in the living room.
Ciara: Is everything okay?
Philip: No. And no, I don’t want to talk about it.
Ciara: Okay. Enjoy your drink.
Philip: Chloe. Before you say anything, I wanted to apologize for hitting brady. I shouldn’t have done that, and I’m sorry.
Chloe: Well, apology not accepted. Not this time.
Philip: I wish you could see it from my perspective.
Chloe: Well, your perspective is warped.
Philip: Are you sure about that? Because every time I see you, you’re in brady’s arms. I mean, damn it, chloe, why can’t I get you to see what’s right in front of you?
Chloe: I can’t do this anymore! I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.
Philip: Are you breaking up with me?
Chloe: I didn’t say that.
Philip: What are you saying?
Chloe: I’m saying that I feel like we should take a step back. And I just need to breathe and figure out what it is that I want.
Philip: So you’re moving out.
Philip: You don’t have to do that. I can give you as much space as you need.
Chloe: See, that’s just it. I don’t want you to give me anything. I’m gonna go pack my things.
Nicole: I just can’t believe I almost let that happen between me and rafe, and right out in the open.
Ej: It wasn’t your fault.
Nicole: Well, it was at least half my fault.
Ej: He’s the one who has a girlfriend.
Nicole: But still, I have to try and get past these feelings. And I do not want to come between ava and rafe.
Ej: And yet, when you’re together…
Nicole: I also want to kiss him. But I don’t, but I do, and…
Ej: So kiss me instead.
Rafe: So you’re gonna recreate your mom’s life on screen.
Allie: Well, sort of. Johnny is rewriting the script, so it’s mainly about my grandma marlena now. I mean, I would really just be more of a supporting player if…
Rafe: If what?
Allie: Well, I told johnny that I wasn’t going to do it unless he got permission directly from my grandma.
Rafe: Ah. You think she’ll say yes?
Allie: I mean, if it were me, I definitely wouldn’T. But I don’t know what’s going on in her head.
[Cell phone chimes]
Devil voice: You did well, marlena. Once again, you talked ben weston out of his doubts. And you didn’t even try to warn him.
Marlena: Now, you leave me alone.
Devil voice: Why would i do that? I can feel you giving in. You’re on the verge of being fully mine again. We are almost one.
Ciara: Guess what. You are looking at the new junior executive at titan.
Ben: Grandpa said yes?
Ciara: Yes. Like you said, he couldn’t say no to me.
Ben: Well, that makes two of us.
Ciara: Oh, my gosh. He was very complimentary of my work from before.
Ben: But he still hates me.
Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yes. But once I’m in the fold, I will work to make that change.
Ben: Okay. One thing at a time.
Ciara: One thing at a time. So what have you been up to?
Ben: Dr. Evans stopped by to check on me, actually.
Ben: Yeah. I know. I was surprised, too. But she wanted to see how I was feeling after our conversation, and she made me feel even better about us having a baby. And she put my mind at ease about the whole “gust of wind blowing out the candle” situation.
Ciara: Uh-huh. So last night, you weren’t at ease? You were just telling me what I wanted to hear?
Ben: Maybe a little bit.
Ciara: Oh, god.
Ben: But I was only doing it because I want you to be happy.
Ciara: And what about now?
Ben: Well, now, I want us to have a baby just as much as you do.
Johnny: I’ve been so focused trying to raise money to do this movie, I didn’t stop to think about the consequences it has for my own family.
Marlena: Oh, hi. Johnny, do what do we owe this surprise?
Johnny: Hey, grandma. I actually came to talk to you about something.
Marlena: Oh? What is it?
Johnny: So you heard about the movie I want to do, right? How it’s about you now?
Johnny: Well, I came over to ask for your permission, but after talking to grandpa, I’m having second thoughts. I had everything all lined up. You know, the financing, the script, even the cast, but now I’m thinking I should just scrap the whole thing. It was a bad idea.
Marlena: No, I don’t think so.
Johnny: What do you mean?
Marlena: I think it’s a good idea. Yeah. I want you to make the movie. Somebody in there?
