Days of Our Lives Transcript

Chad: I am sorry I’m late.
Chad: Memorizing lines?
Abigail: No. This is not johnny’s script, but it’s still pretty damn interesting. Turns out we’re a little behind on the local news.
Chad: What the hell?
Abigail: Yeah. Gwen’s in jail for soliciting a judge. And, looks like, this time, she might actually pay for what she did.
Bonnie: Not that I’m in any rush to get back into statesville, at least they have a tv. Of course, you could get a black eye trying to change the channel. Want to play 20 questions? Hey. Hey, hey, hey. You crying?
Bonnie: Kid. Hey, hey. Hey, hey, hey. I know it’s rough, but you gotta believe me; justin’s brilliant. He’s gonna get us out of here.
Gwen: How? He’s in the same boat that we are in. He’s in a bloody cell, just like us.
[Sighs] God, this is driving me absolutely mad, knowing that xander’s just down the hall, but he might as well be in bloody siberia.
Bonnie: Honey, it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Bonnie: Why? Where are you taking me?
Officer: Let’s go.
Bonnie: Listen, jack, whatever happens– whatever happens to me, you tell justin I love him. Please, just promise me that. Ow. God!
Jack: I promise. I promise. Sweetheart. How are you?
Gwen: I’m sorry. I completely messed everything up. Please don’t hate me.
Xander: Can’t stop thinking about what trask said. If uncle victor comes through, we just might be off the hook.
Justin: It must mean that he’s made some headway with her.
Xander: You think?
Justin: What I don’t get is why… she would tip her hand to us like that–and make a special trip down here to do it.
Xander: It’s the power trip.
Justin: Didn’t seem like one.
Xander: No, I know her type. She just wanted to remind us that she still owns us… throw her weight around so we don’t notice that victor’s already won and she’s about to cave.
Justin: But why cave? I mean, she lives for headlines. She has a slam dunk, front-page case against us. What the hell does victor have that is worth more to her than that?
Steve: Hey, sweetness.
Steve: Sorry I’m late.
Kayla: No, I just got here. Remember I told you that I put a call into bayview?
Steve: Yeah. To get them to let julie in to see doug, right?
Kayla: Yeah. Well, I heard back from him right after you left.
Steve: And how’d it go?
Kayla: They won’t budge.
Steve: Why not?
Kayla: Well, they said it’s not their decision, that they are just following orders. Marlena’s orders.
Kayla: Yeah, apparently she extended the order that doug can’t talk to anybody except the bayview staff. I mean, keeping julie from doug? Marlena’s not that kind of doctor. In fact, she’s not that kind of person.
Steve: No. So what are you gonna do?
Kayla: Well, it’s too late to do anything now, so I’m gonna have to take care of it in the morning.
[Exhales] I’m pretty fun, aren’t I? I bet you’re happy that you are having dinner with me.
Steve: Baby, I’m always happy to have dinner with you. You know that.
Kayla: You know what I want?
Kayla: I want a drink… and I want to change the subject.
Steve: I can make that happen. So… what do you want to talk about? The cubs?
Kayla: No. I want you to tell me what victor wanted.
Steve: Nothing much. He just wants black patch to find kristen dimera.
Nicole: Oh, gosh, nicole.
Ej: Allow me.
Nicole: Ej. Um… what are you doing here?
Ej: I believe you and i have some unfinished business.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Nicole: Um… ej, if you’re here to discuss the spring projections…
Ej: I think you know that’s not why I’m here.
Our dinner at julie’s place was a fiasco. I’m here to humbly ask for a do-over.
Kayla: So victor wants you to find kristen.
Steve: Uh-huh. And he’s offering a handsome reward for her.
Kayla: What is it? Some kind of vigilante justice? Is he gonna build a guillotine in his backyard? No, no, I take that back. I bet he already has one.
Steve: No, nothing like that. He’s made some kind of deal with melinda trask.
Kayla: Oh, god. The one person on earth who hates kristen more than victor.
Steve: With good reason. Kristen did kill her daughter.
Kayla: So it’s obviously revenge.
Steve: Right. Since victor knows that, he’s offering kristen to her.
Kayla: In exchange for what?
Steve: Dropping the charges against justin and xander.
Xander: No, you’re right. I just don’t see victor being able to pay trask off. Power means more to her than money.
Justin: Trask knows if she took a bribe from him, she’d be in his back pocket for the rest of her career.
Xander: Yeah, she’s already got us in here for soliciting a judge; I mean, imagine the headlines if she put victor kiriakis away for bribery.
Justin: Right. So we know it’s not about money. God only knows how victor’s mind works.
Xander: Well, you know what was weird? She said he was trying to get both of us out. Now, you, I understand he’ll move heaven and earth for, but me? I mean, we’re not on the best of terms to begin with, and now I’ve dragged you down with me.
Justin: You’re family. That’s victor’s bottom line.
Officer: Let’s go, kiriakis.
Xander: My god, he did it. He got us out.
Officer: No, not you, beefcake. Just him. Move it.
Justin: Where are you taking me?
Officer: You’ll see. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed
Nicole: Ej, tonight’s not a good night. You know, it’s been a long day and holly’s at a sleepover and I could really use a good night’s sleep.
Ej: But you’ve still got to eat.
Nicole: I think I’ve got some fried rice in the refrigerator. I should be fine, right? Rice doesn’t go bad?
Ej: Ah. Nicole, how about if I promise to have you back before curfew? We’ll go to julie’s place for food that isn’t three weeks old. I could call ahead and make sure there’s a dry martini waiting for you.
Nicole: Oh, you remembered my achilles’ heel.
Ej: So is that a yes?
Nicole: [Sighs] Yes. I guess so. Yes. Could you just give me– give me a minute to fix up?
Ej: Nicole… you don’t need to fix up. Nothing about you needs fixing.
Chad: So no one could ever accuse gwen of being prudent, but to come onto a judge?
Abigail: She did more than come onto him. She flat out offered to sleep with him if he threw out xander’s court case. And it was more than a he-said-she-said thing. I mean, the man was wearing a wire.
Chad: And now she’s facing prison time.
Abigail: Could be up to five years.
Chad: I mean, a judge. She had to have known she was taking a huge risk.
Abigail: Well, you know, I’m sure it never occurred to her that any man would ever have the willpower to turn her down.
Abigail: But what I don’t understand is, why xander? I’ve known this woman to do anything for anyone other than herself, and now xander?
Chad: He always did bring out the best in people. Have you talked to your dad? This must have come as a huge shock to him.
Abigail: I don’t think anything gwen said or did could come as a shock to him now.
Chad: Not even offering to sleep with a judge?
Abigail: It’s not that much of a stretch. Turns out she and my dad had a little heart-to-heart, and she told him that, back in philly, she used to be a sex worker.
Jack: Gwen, I could never hate you. Do you think I would even be here if I blamed you for what happened?
Gwen: I am to blame for everything. It’s bad enough that I’ve messed up xander’s life, but now justin’s too.
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold it right there. First of all, you didn’t put a gun to xander’s head. He screwed up his own life. And it’s not the first time.
Gwen: But justin–
Jack: Oh… [Sighs] He’s gonna get off, believe me. Look, he was planning to marry bonnie lockhart. That’s a rock-solid insanity defense if there ever was one.
Gwen: [Chuckles] Yeah, she is special, isn’t she?
Jack: Yeah, that’s one word for it. Yeah.
Gwen: God, how’d you even get in here to come and see me?
Jack: It wasn’t easy. Finally had to play the reporter card. So you tell me, are you eating? Sleeping?
Gwen: I’m okay.
Jack: Mm-hmm? Bonnie’s not driving you crazy?
Gwen: Well, you know, I thought at first that she would. But… she’s actually been quite a distraction. And in her own weird way, she’S… she’s been very nice to me.
Jack: You know, the two of you shouldn’t even be in here together. She’s being charged with murder! She could be dangerous.
Gwen: I don’t know. I’m actually sort of worried about her. Do you-do you know where that cop just took her now?
Bonnie: Justin! What are you doing here?
Justin: Well, I understand you’ve been demanding to see your lawyer.
Bonnie: I have. I’ve been so worried about you! I just didn’t think they’d let me see you ’cause you’re in here too.
Justin: I haven’t been convicted or disbarred, so technically I am still your lawyer. So there’s no reason for me to not be here, and–not that there’s much that I can do for you in here.
Bonnie: You could give me a hug.
Officer: No–no touching.
You got five minutes.
Bonnie: Justin, what have I done to you?
Kayla: So victor plans to spring justin and xander and leave bonnie to rot in prison.
Steve: Not to mention my niece, gwen.
Kayla: Look, I understand that he is paying for a job, but don’t you think it’s horribly unfair that he would ask you to only help his family members?
Steve: I do. But who says I have to go along with his plan?
Kayla: You’re thinking of double-crossing victor kiriakis? The man who invented revenge?
Steve: I won’t be double-crossing him. He’ll get what he wants. But now that I know what trask is after, I can go to her and tell her the price went up. If she wants kristen, she’ll have to drop the charges against bonnie and gwen too.
Kayla: Steve, no.
Steve: No what?
Kayla: No, it’s dangerous! Please. You cannot take this case. People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes
Chad: So that’s what dr. Snyder was holding over gwen–was that– was that she was a sex worker.
Abigail: That’s what she told my dad, anyway.
Chad: Okay, so xander is sitting in jail for something gwen did, just to keep the truth from your dad, but your dad already knows the whole story?
Abigail: Yeah, but I have a feeling that’s not the whole story. And quite frankly, I don’t believe a word of it.
Jack: I’m working on getting you a new lawyer. Okay?
Gwen: Thank you.
Jack: Okay. This is what I’m thinking. We can argue that since justin was a lawyer and he okayed the plan, you had no idea how serious it was when you–
Gwen: No, he tried to talk us out of it, jack. He only went to smails after I had gone to see him and… made the offer. I came up with the idea all on my own.
Jack: Damn it, gwen. Why did you do it? Didn’t you know the whole thing was gonna blow up in your face? Why didn’t you… why didn’t you come to me?
Gwen: Because there was nothing that you could do… then. There is something that you can do, though, now.
Jack: Name it.
Gwen: Give xander a message for me.
Bonnie: Steve was right. I ruined your life.
Justin: Bonnie! We only have five minutes together, and I don’t intend to waste it listening to you cry.
Bonnie: All right. Even in the slammer, you had a handkerchief.
Bonnie: No, you’re just such a classy guy, and I’m a worthless piece of–
Justin: Bonnie, stop! Don’t talk like that about the woman I love.
Justin: Yes, still!
Bonnie: You’re nuts!
Bonnie: Look, I need you to listen to me like you never listened to me before, do you understand? This is important! You can’t worry about me. I’ve done time. I know how to handle myself. But justin, you don’t know what they do to guys with handkerchiefs in statesville. So you gotta do whatever it takes to get out, do you understand me? You tell trask that you will turn dime on me. And as long as she drops the charges against you, you gotta do and say whatever she wants you to say. Do you understand?
Justin: I won’t do that.
Bonnie: You have to. It’s the only way out here!
Justin: No. Fortunately, it’s not.
Steve: Baby, I have to do this. I can’t watch justin and bonnie and gwen go to statesville if there’s something I can do about it.
Kayla: This isn’t just about double-crossing victor. It’s about finding kristen and bringing her back here. Do you think she’s gonna do that without a fight? And when she fights, she kills people.
Steve: I can handle kristen.
Kayla: How are you even gonna find her? Nobody has seen or heard from her in months. How will you track her down?
Steve: I think the answer to that might have just walked through the door.
Advil dual action fights pain 2 ways.
Xander: Jack! Oh, it’s good to see you, mate.
Jack: Nice place you got here.
Xander: Look, I’m so sorry about gwen. I swear, I was totally against her going to that judge. Just, I was in custody. I couldn’t stop her.
Jack: I know. I know. She told me it was all her idea.
Xander: Well, not exactly. I was the one who started talking about trying to prove that smails was dirty. She was just so desperate to help. But it is on me.
Jack: You know, the two of you have a very interesting relationship. You think everything is your fault, and she thinks everything is hers.
Xander: What’s that supposed to mean?
Jack: It means that she wants me to tell trask that she was the one delivering drugs for snyder, and you had nothing to do with it–that, at least you should get out of this free, that maybe you’ll just get a slap on the wrist for dumping the body, and that’s it.
Xander: No! Jack, you can’t do that.
Jack: No, no! Look. Gwen’s just trying to help you, xander; please, just let her do it.
Xander: Jack, promise me you will not say a word about this to trask.
Jack: Why not?
Chad: So you think gwen lied to your dad.
Abigail: After everything that he’s forgiven her for– drugging me, trying to ruin his marriage, seducing you, not to mention the fight that she had with grandma that ended up in her, you know, dead… to think that being a sex worker is gonna be the one thing that he couldn’t get past?
Chad: So she had to–she had to come up with something to explain the blackmail.
Abigail: Yeah, but it’s a shrewd lie, right? And he already feels guilty about her. And then she says she was forced to sell her body? He’s not gonna dwell on that. He’s sure as hell not gonna challenge it.
Chad: No, you just put your fingers over your ears and go, ” ahh!” I mean, but… but seriously, I mean, it is all supposition.
Abigail: It’s a working hypothesis. One, snyder had to have something really big on her in order for her to be willing to take that big of a risk. Two, if the threat is telling my dad, then it must have been something that he would not be able to forgive.
Chad: Just refer to all of the other terrible things that she’s done that your father’s forgiven her for.
Abigail: Right, but I think the one red line that I can think of is if she deliberately hurt his family– me, my mom, jj, or our kids.
Chad: She–she already has. I mean, your–your–your dad knows everything that she’s done, and he asked her to move in with him.
Abigail: Yeah, but he did that because when she did those things, she thought that he had deliberately abandoned her and that I had stolen her life, but now that–she knows it’s not true.
Chad: So the threat isn’t something from the past. ‘Cause he’d forgive that.
Abigail: I think that if she did something deliberately after she knew the truth, it’d be a totally different story.
Kayla: You think that ej knows where kristen is?
Steve: Well, we know kristen sent ej the letter telling him about sami’s affair with lucas. So at the very least, she’s been in touch with him.
Kayla: Even if he knows, he’s not gonna give up his own sister, especially to you.
Steve: No, but nicole might.
Kayla: Nicole? Why would she know anything?
Steve: Well, wasn’t she the one who handed the letter over to ej, to get back at sami for blowing up her marriage? Maybe there was a postmark on it or something that she saw. And unlike ej, nicole hates kristen.
Kayla: I thought she hates ej too, but they look awfully cozy for a business dinner.
Ej: So now that you have your martini, shall we talk about basic black’s new line?
Nicole: I think we need to talk about you kissing me. What was that about?
Kayla: We need to find a way to get nicole alone.
Steve: “We”? I thought you said I shouldn’t do this.
Kayla: I know, but I thought about what you said, about helping justin and bonnie and gwen. So I think that we need to do something. And I have an idea.
Ej: That kiss was an impulse. You said you didn’t want to be kissing rafe. I was trying to provide a viable alternative. I’m sorry if I overstepped my bounds.
Nicole: You did. But it’s not like I tried to stop you. And I let you talk me into taking me out to dinner, which I probably shouldn’t have done.
Ej: We’re both going through a divorce. It’s not as if we’re doing anything wrong.
Nicole: It’s not about wrong or right; it’s about being stupid and really stupid.
Ej: So you think, because we’re both going through nasty divorces and that we have a truly bizarre and complex personal history and that neither one of us have ever been remotely reliable, this might not be a good idea?
Nicole: Something along those lines, yes.
Ej: Yeah. But it could be fun to see what happens. And, as I recall, when we did have fun, we had pretty spectacular fun.
Nicole: Okay. We paid for that fun, big time.
Ej: So you’re telling me you’re now sadder and wiser and don’t want to risk making the same mistakes all over again. Hmm?
Nicole: That’s right. However, if you buy me another martini, we can talk about it.
Steve: Where you going?
Kayla: Garcon! Garcon, mr. Dimera here wants a drink or something or other. I just had to come over here and confirm for myself that the two of you were here together! And I wasn’t just seeing things.
Steve: Baby, listen, let’s go get you something to eat.
Kayla: No, no, no, no, no, no, just a second, now. I’m catching up with my old pal ej.
Ej: Old pal? You hate me, as I recall.
Kayla: Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Hated. Hated. As in past tense. No, I mean, you brainwashed my husband. I mean, I’m sure that you had a good reason to do that. And you! And you, nicole. This must be, like, the craziest déj vu for you. I mean–I mean, how many times were you guys married?
Steve: Come on. Let’s let them be now.
Kayla: Mm-mm. Mm-mm. Mm-mm.
Steve: Come on. Let’s go.
Ej: We were just trying to order.
Kayla: Oh, well, you know what, the rack of lamb is my very favorite. It’s right here.
Steve: Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Nicole: Oh, my gosh.
Kayla: Oh, my gosh, that’s probably a silk tie, isn’t it?
Ej: It was.
Kayla: Ah, triage! Get that to the men’s room, stat! You need to douse that baby with water. I mean, really clean it and get that stain out of there. Move it! Move it over there! Go on! Head on out!
Steve: Okay, okay.
Steve: That’s enough.
Kayla: That way.
[ Crow squawks ]
Bonnie: So trask said victor has a way to get us off the hook?
Justin: That’s what she said.
Bonnie: Maybe she doesn’t have enough evidence against us.
Justin: There’s a recording of me extorting a judge. And they found a dead body with a bullet in our bed. That’s the kind of evidence a da dreams about.
Bonnie: Well, maybe she finally figured out that that judge is crooked and is going after him instead.
Justin: Bonnie, I don’t want to use this time talking about our case. I want to talk about us.
Justin: God only knows what victor is trying or if it’ll work. But I want you to know that whatever happens, I still want to marry you, even if we have to have the ceremony in the statesville cafeteria.
Bonnie: Oh, god, justin.
Justin: Bonnie, don’t cry.
Bonnie: I can’t help it. I know I don’t deserve you. I don’T. But I love you so much. God, I miss you so much.
Justin: I miss you too.
Officer: That’s it; time’s up.
Chad: So even if she is lying, how can we prove it? Snyder’s dead.
Abigail: I hope that was a really painful death and he is burning in hell somewhere.
Abigail: I mean, think about it. Because of me, she loses her baby. And then–
Chad: But that-that was an accident.
Abigail: But he’s her doctor, and it must have been one of the lowest moments of her life; he blackmails her? What a pig.
Chad: I agree. So… you feel sorry for gwen?
Abigail: I feel sorry for her, yeah. I feel guilty about her, I hate her, and I wish she’d never been born.
Chad: Okay, then–then why don’t we just let her go? I mean, she’s made her decision. Why don’t we just let the cards fall where they may? And then you and I, we can focus on us and the kids.
Abigail: I can’T.
Chad: Why? Because you feel guilty?
Abigail: No; because of my dad. Snyder must have known that gwen did something my dad could never forgive. It must have been horrible, personal. Of all the things that gwen has done to my dad, I think the worst is yet to come. And to protect him… I gotta find out what it is.
Xander: Jack, you can’t tell the da the truth about gwen.
Jack: Think about it, xander. Maybe if gwen comes clean, they’ll go easy on you.
Xander: No, no, no, no, listen: She can’t say a word about any of it, because–look, there’s a good chance that all the charges against us are just gonna go away.
Jack: You’re delusional. I mean, the evidence is overwhelming!
Xander: No, I’m not delusional. Justin and I heard it from trask herself.
Jack: Why in god’s name would trask let you off?
Xander: I have no idea.
Ej: I hope you’re not operating on anyone tonight.
Kayla: [Giggles] You’re funny. You’re hilarious.
Steve: Okay, okay.
Nicole: [Stammers] Are you okay?
Kayla: I’m fine.
Steve: And stone-cold sober.
Nicole: Right. So what’s going on?
Kayla: We need to get you alone.
Steve: We need to ask you some questions about kristen dimera. On the outside, I looked fine.
Jack: Look, I just wanted to tell you, bonnie asked me to tell you that she loves you.
Justin: I know. I just talked to her.
[Cell phone ringing]
Jack: Oh. Um… look, I just want you to– I’m so sorry that you got pulled into all of this. I have no idea what’s going on. Xander wouldn’t have even been charged if gwen had just told the truth.
Justin: Actually, it’s a little more complicated than that.
Jack: What’s that supposed to mean?
Gwen: Justin can be your lawyer from jail? That’s weird.
Bonnie: Oh, yeah, weird. And great.
Gwen: Does he think that he can win your case?
Bonnie: Uh, no, not exactly.
Gwen: Then why do you look so happy?
Bonnie: Can you keep a secret?
Abigail: I think aunt kayla might be able to help me get to the bottom of this.
Abigail: Whatever snyder had on gwen might still be in his office.
Chad: Abs, uh, are you sure you wanna do this?
Abigail: I have to. For dad.
[Cell phone blips]
Nicole: So by the time I got the letter, it was already out of the envelope. I never saw a postmark.
Steve: But you read the letter. Was there anything in there that could have given you any idea of where she might be?
Nicole: No. Look, I wish I could help. I am sick of that woman getting away with murder.
Steve: Maybe you can help.
Nicole: What are you doing?
Steve: If ej has been in contact with kristen, it would be in here.
Nicole: Okay, if he found out you were messing with his phone…
Steve: You gonna tell him?
Kayla: Kristen locked you up and stole your life. Wouldn’t you like to repay the favor?
Nicole: Well, what about the passcode?
Steve: There are ways around that.
Nicole: All right, fine, just hurry up, okay?
I thought I was managing my moderate
Abigail: Okay, I am going to turn this off.
Chad: I thought you were waiting to hear from kayla.
Abigail: Oh, it can wait till morning. Want some more wine?
Chad: Yes, thank you.
Abigail: Mm-hmm. Chad.
Chad: I am right here.
Abigail: Uh-huh. Before, you were talking about us focusing more on us and the kids.
Chad: No, no, no, forget–forget what I said. You gotta–you gotta look after your dad. It is what it is. You gotta-you gotta do what you gotta do.
Abigail: I will, but I don’t think that that means that we can’t focus on us and the kids. You know, all the stuff with dad and gwen has just been really weighing me down, but…
Chad: I can tell.
Abigail: But tonight, I just felt like I was able to talk to you about it, and you really listened. And it really helped me sort things out, and… you know… it just felt like before. Felt like we were us again, and… I want it to stay that way.
Chad: Not as much as I do.
Abigail: Starting to feel like home again.
Chad: Thank god.
Kayla: He’s coming! He’s coming! He’s coming!
Ej: What’s going on here?
Jack: What’s more complicated than I think?
Justin: If gwen was a sex worker, what was snyder using to blackmail her? Or was that all a lie? Or maybe she was just like every other drug runner–in it for the money.
Xander: No, he was blackmailing her. She’d never do it otherwise. She hates drugs because of her mother.
Justin: So what did snyder have on this paragon of virtue?
Xander: Don’t talk about her like that!
Justin: Well, how the hell am I supposed to talk about her?
Xander: Her life was hell! But now she has one thing that matters to her–after all these years, she finally has a father who loves her, and I’m not doing or saying anything to screw that up.
Justin: So she told jack that she was a sex worker, meaning that that wasn’t as bad as what snyder was using to blackmail her. What the hell did she do?
Xander: Can’t tell you. I promised her I wouldn’T.
Justin: So you do know what she did. And you know why– that she would do anything to keep jack from finding it out. Now that xander’s confessed to a crime he didn’t commit, telling the truth could open a whole can of worms. Trust me. You don’t want to go there.
Gwen: Justin told you that trask might be dropping the charges against the four of us.
Bonnie: That’s right.
Bonnie: Hell if I know. But it’s gotta be something really big. Mm-hmm.
[Both laugh excitedly]
Ej: Why are the two of you still here?
Nicole: Actually, they were just leaving.
Kayla: Well, I wanted to see about maybe paying for your dry cleaning.
Ej: Not necessary. Now, if you’ll excuse us–
Steve: All right, all right. We’re on our way out.
Kayla: I need my things.
Steve: I’ll get your things. Sorry to interrupt.
Kayla: Thank you.
Steve: I’m really sorry.
Kayla: I’ll get the door.
Ej: God, I hate them.
Nicole: They’re–they’re gone now, so let’S… let’s just forget it.
Steve: Got it. If I can trace it, track kristen down in time, justin and bonnie and gwen and xander will go free, and kristen dimera will be in jail, where she belongs.
