Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Chanel: Oh my god, horton, today was nuts.
Allie: I know. Apparently, people really love free pumpkin cookies. No. Were those the last two? I didn’t even get to try any.
Chanel: Good thing I saved you one.
Allie: Dupree, you’re the best. Mmm. Amazing.
Chanel: I know, right?
Chad: Mmm. These cookies are great.
Abigail: [Laughs] Oh, my gosh. It is so sweet of chanel and allie to let the kids take as many as they wanted. But we probably should’ve put the brakes on.
Chad: It’s fine. It’s what halloween is for. It’s for the sugar.
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, I guess you’re right. Oh, man.
Chad: Any word from kayla?
Abigail: No, not yet. I really, really hope she lets me take a look around clay snyder’s office. I just–I don’t want to push, but I wish she’d get back to me, you know?
Chad: She will. I’m sure she just has her hands full taking care of abe right now.
Lani: Yeah, I’ll tell him. Okay, I love you too.
[Sighs] Oh, my god. Hi, theo. Oh, hi.
Theo: How’s dad?
Paulina: You gave us the scare of our lives yesterday, but thank god you made it. And you know what I realized sitting here all these hours just looking at your handsome face? I have been happier in the last eight months than I’ve been in my entire life. Don’t let it go to your head, abraham carver, but you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
[Soft dramatic music]
Abe: Go on.
Paulina: You’re awake. Oh, praise jesus!
Demon marlena: With that pesky john black out of the picture, I can finally be who I really am.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Johnny: [Growls] Gotcha!
Allie: Oh, my god, johnny.
Chanel: You scared the hell out of us.
Johnny: Have a little sense of humor, guys. It’s halloween.
Chanel: Aren’t you a little old for trick-or-treating?
Johnny: This is not candy. I was up in the attic looking for a costume when I found this in a box of old toys.
Abigail: I just hope kayla didn’t throw out all of dr. Snyder’s belongings after he died. I mean, I know it’s a long shot, but I think it could be possible that there’s something in his office that would help us figure out what he was really holding over gwen.
Chad: Maybe. I know you’re anxious to get to the truth, but there’s not much you can do until you hear from kayla. So I do have a way in which we could pass some time.
Abigail: Hmm? What’s that?
Chad: Well, we just started sharing a bed together. It’d be a shame if we didn’t use it.
Abigail: Mm-hmm. That’s a good point. I do have one question. Costumes on or off?
Chad: Um… off.
Abigail: Then it’s unanimous.
Chad: Ej, what the–
Ej: Hope I’m not interrupting anything. And who’s ej? I’m father john black, and I’m here to perform an exorcism on my precious marlena. Cute costume, but you really should be dressed as the devil.
Demon marlena: Well, you won’t be needing this anymore. And as for john black, I know exactly what to do next.
Belle: Surprise! Guess who’s back–
I order my groceries online now.
Theo: When you called me and told me dad got shot I–
Lani: I know. We were all so scared. We didn’t know if he would survive or if he would wake up. And it just– it brought me back to–
Theo: To what happened with me.
Lani: Yeah. That was a really dark time. But look at you now. You are strong, and you are healthy, and dad will get there too because he has us and he has his new fiancéE.
Theo: [Chuckles] I’m still wrapping my head around that one.
Lani: I know. It took me a minute too. But ever since dad and aunt paulina got engaged, he has just been walking on air.
Abe: Paulina, I–
Paulina: Hush. Hush now. You don’t need to talk.
[Chuckles] We know that I have enough to say for the both of us.
Paulina: Oh, now there’s the smile I like to see! From now on, that is your only job, mr. Mayor. You just keep on smiling. You rest, you relax, and you let us take care of you.
Abe: Mm-hmm. I can do that.
Lani: He woke up?
Paulina: Uh-huh. Just this minute.
Theo: Hey, dad.
Abe: And, lani, you’re still here.
Lani: Of course I am. How are you doing, dad?
Abe: I’m good. Grateful. Theo, I–you came all this way.
Theo: Are you kidding? I got on the first flight out of jo’burg.
Abe: You didn’t have to do that.
Theo: I wanted to. And I was planning on coming back for the wedding anyway. Unless you’re planning on postponing it.
Paulina: We have to postpone it. We can’t put abe through a wedding in his condition. Oh, theo, I know you came a long way, but your father’s health, it comes first.
Theo: I understand and totally agree.
Lani: Mm-hmm, yeah, me too.
Abe: I know it’s–it’s my health that you’re talking about, but I–I have something to say on this subject, and we’re not postponing the wedding.
Abigail: Ej, it’s really not the time or the place.
Chad: Now, what my wife is trying to say is get the hell out now!
Ej: You’re still so insecure.
Chad: And you’re still a jackass who doesn’t understand the concept of personal space.
Ej: Hm, well, there certainly won’t be any space between abigail and me when we start filming, and you can’t handle that, can you?
Ej: Very well. But you still have to come to terms with the fact that your wife and i will soon be on the big screen making mad passionate love for all the world to see. Right, marlena?
[Soft dramatic music]
Chad: I know he’s my brother, but I-I loathe him.
Chanel: A ouija board?
Johnny: Yeah, you remember this, allie? We used to play this all the time. I thought, “what more of a perfect time to pull it back out than halloween?”
Chanel: You don’t want to be messing with that stuff, G. Bad things can happen.
Johnny: No, it’s harmless.
Allie: I used to be so scared of this thing when I was a kid.
Johnny: But now you’re over it. Come on. Let’s try it out.
Chanel: No, thanks.
Johnny: Please? For me? It’s fun, I promise.
Chanel: I know I am so gonna regret this. Where should I put my hands?
Johnny: Okay, chanel, ask it a question.
Chanel: I’ll pass.
Johnny: Fine. I’ll do it. I’ve been dying to ask it something.
Allie: Why am i not surprised?
Johnny: Tell us, oh powerful spirits, was grandma marlena really possessed by the devil?
Belle: Mom, what’s going on?
Marlena: [Chuckles] Oh, oh, this.
[Chuckles] Oh, honey. It’s a halloween costume.
Belle: But your eyes are–
Marlena: Oh, oh, oh, yeah. Contacts. Kind of fun, huh?
Belle: No, no. They’re pretty creepy.
Marlena: Oh. Well, I was only trying to get in the holiday spirit.
Belle: “Holiday spirit”?
Marlena: Clearly, you object.
Belle: Well, I–I don’t– I don’t think I “object,” it’s just I’m–I’m surprised, you know, with one of your closest friends in the hospital and–
Marlena: Oh. Oh, you heard about abe.
Belle: Yeah. Shawn and I were on the same flight with theo coming back from south africa.
Marlena: I see.
Belle: Yeah. Theo said his injuries are really serious.
Marlena: Well, it was dicey for a while, but he’s going to be just fine.
Belle: Oh, good. Thank god.
Marlena: Just don’t–don’t– don’t credit god for that. I mean, what I mean by that, it really was kayla and the hospital staff that saved him. Anyway, hey, give me a hug. I’ve missed you.
Belle: Yeah, you’re gonna have to take those contacts out first ’cause they’re really freaking me out.
Paulina: Abe, are you sure about this?
Lani: Dad, we know how much you want to get married, but–
Abe: No, but nothing. I know you all are concerned about my health, but the best thing for my health would be to marry the woman I love. And that–that is my final answer.
Paulina: Well, I guess it’s settled.
Abe: And you, you know, I know you’ve been here all last night and all day today. You need to–you need to rest, so just go home. Be with your children.
Lani: Eli is with them, dad. And there’s no way that I was gonna leave your side, not until I knew that you were okay and I could tell you how much I love you.
Abe: I know, sweetheart.
Lani: Dad, I don’t know what I would have done if I’d lost you. We haven’t had that much time together.
Abe: I know. And no one–no one regrets all those missing years more than I do. And now–now we have the rest of our lives to make it up.
Lani: [Chuckles] Um… kayla says she’s gonna be in here to check on you, so she will not be happy to see all three of us here.
Abe: You’re probably right.
Lani: Why don’t auntie p and I step out and leave you and theo to catch up?
Johnny: I ask you again. Was grandma marlena really possessed by the devil?
Chanel: You did that on purpose.
Allie: Yeah, she’s right. You totally pushed it.
Johnny: No, no. I didn’T. I swear. That was the spirits telling us that the possession was real.
Johnny: Are you doubting the devil, sis? Bad move. Wouldn’t want to make him mad.
Marlena: There. All better?
Belle: Yeah. Much.
Marlena: And yet you still seem disapproving.
Belle: Well, I just don’t–I don’t understand why you would dress up like that after everything that happened to you.
Marlena: Well, I’m embracing my past.
Belle: What does that mean?
Marlena: That means that, for 25 years, my possession was–well, it was a topic not to be discussed anytime by anyone.
Belle: Because it was incredibly painful.
Marlena: You know what is really painful? Being ashamed of yourself. I’m done feeling like that. I don’t want to feel that way. That’s why I want everything out in the open now, which is why I agreed to let johnny make his movie.
Belle: What movie?
Marlena: Possessed: The marlena evans story.
Belle: [Chuckles] I’m sorry. Wait. You’re letting johnny make a film about that?
Marlena: Yeah. Well, I think it’s time that people knew a little more about that kind of thing.
Belle: And what does dad have to say about this? I mean, I can’t imagine he would go along with that.
Marlena: Well, it isn’t up to… dad is not thrilled about the idea.
Belle: Where is dad anyway?
Why hide your skin if dupixent
Marlena: Uh, your dad?
Belle: Yeah, you know, the guy you’re married to? Goes by the name john black? Calls me tink?
Marlena: He’s gone.
Belle: What do you mean, “gone”?
Marlena: Well, he–he had a call about an important case for black patch.
Belle: Oh, really? I’m surprised that he would leave when someone he’s so close with is in the hospital.
Marlena: No. No, I mean, he–he realized that abe was gonna be fine before he left. And you know your dad. When duty calls, you’d have to chain him up to keep him away.
John: Where… where am I? How… how the hell did I get in here? St. Luke’S. I went to find julie and doc. Only it wasn’t doc.
Ej: Hm. Must work on that eyebrow thing. Oh, good. You decided to go over your lines with me. We really should get comfortable with these scenes before our first rehearsal.
Abigail: Actually, I came to tell you that johnny is gonna have to find someone else to play marlena.
Abigail: Because I quit.
[Soft dramatic music]
Johnny: I want to ask it something else.
Allie: So you can cheat again?
Johnny: No, I swear. I–look, I won’t even touch it this time. You guys can do it yourselves.
Allie: Fine. One more question. But that is it.
Johnny: Okay. Okay, spirits, does the devil know we’re making a movie about him?
Does he approve? Awesome! The devil’s cool with my movie.
Allie: Or maybe chanel is just being a cheerleader.
Chanel: I am not!
Allie: Well, we have to ask it something besides yes or no questions.
Johnny: Okay, fine. Let’s–we’ll move on to a different subject.
Who does chanel really want to be with? Me or my sister?
Allie: Hey! That is so out of line!
Chanel: What is wrong with you, g?
Johnny: I’m just kidding.
Chanel: You know what? I’m done with this ouija board nonsense. I need to go see how my mom is doing in the hospital. Later.
Allie: [Sighs] Nice going, dumbass.
Johnny: I was joking.
Allie: Why would you even ask that question? You know there’s nothing going on with chanel and me.
Johnny: That’s not what it looked like when i first showed up.
Lani: Have you had a chance to eat? I can go down to the cafeteria and–
Paulina: Lani, honey, I’m fine. I’m fine. Now, please, go home to your little angels.
Lani: I just spoke with eli, and they’re fine.
Paulina: You have been so wonderful staying with me, being here for your father. But jules and carver, they need you too.
Lani: I just–I want to stay here for a while, okay? Just to make sure my dad is okay, okay?
Paulina: You’re still shaken up.
Lani: [Sighs] When eli came home and told us that my dad had been shot–
Paulina: It was a terrible moment.
Lani: That reminds me. Before you walked in, you said you wanted to talk to me about something.
Paulina: I–I did?
Lani: Yes. You said it was important, that marlena had given you some advice about me? You said that you hadn’t spoken with my dad about it yet, and that you prayed that he understood why you were sharing it with me. You said it had something to do with you wanting me to call you “mama.” Auntie p, what is it? The airport can be a real challenge for new homeowners
Paulina: We don’t have to talk about this now.
Lani: Please, aunt p, I’m not only curious, I’m a bit concerned. I mean, it sounded serious.
Paulina: I–I want you to be my maid of honor.
Paulina: Uh-huh. Well, I suppose it would be matron of honor since you’re a married woman.
Lani: Wait. Auntie, I’m confused. Why is that something you would keep from my dad?
Paulina: Oh, well, I didn’t want him to get all excited about it, you know, before I knew if you’d accept. And so now that we know that your father is going to be okay, and he’s full steam ahead for tying our knot, well, will you do it?
Lani: Yes, of course.
Paulina: Oh, really?
Paulina: Oh, wonderful! Oh, wonderful! That’s wonderful!
Lani: Wait. What about chanel? Won’t she be upset that you’re asking me to be your matron of honor instead of her?
Chanel: That is an excellent question.
Allie: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Johnny: I saw chanel feeding you a cookie. It looked intimate.
Allie: We were passing out halloween cookies all day. And when they were gone, I realized I didn’t get to have any, and I was bummed. So it turns out chanel saved me one. And what you saw was her feeding me a bite. There’s nothing intimate about that. God, why are you such a jerk?
Johnny: Why are you being so defensive? Did I strike a nerve?
Allie: No. No! All you did was screw things up with chanel. I mean, why would you do that?
Johnny: I didn’t mean to. Obviously, I know that you’re with tripp and chanel is with me.
Allie: Yeah, well, not much longer if you keep acting like this.
Johnny: I will apologize to her.
Allie: Well, we’ll see if she accepts it. Hey, I have an idea. Why don’t we ask the ouija board?
[Soft dramatic music]
Marlena: You must be exhausted after your trip.
Belle: Actually, I feel pretty good.
Marlena: Well, I’m thinking that you should– you should go on home and unpack and maybe take a little nap.
Belle: Oh, no. I’m really–I’m okay.
Marlena: Well, yeah, you know. But the thing is that jet lag can kind of hit a little bit later. But, you know, you go on and get yourself a little nap, and we’ll touch base later.
Belle: If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were trying to get rid of me.
Marlena: Why would I do that?
John: Ah, so he’s back. After all of these years, he’s back. Underestimating me, that’s a big mistake ’cause I will never stop fighting you. Doc will never stop fighting you.
Ej: You can’t quit. You signed a contract
Abigail: I’ll break it.
Ej: As a producer, I could sue you.
Abigail: Go for it.
Ej: What about johnny? He’s so excited for you to play marlena. He’ll be very disappointed.
Abigail: Cut the crap, ej. You don’t care about johnny. You were totally against him making the movie, and you only changed your mind because you knew it would bother chad.
Ej: Why–why would I want to bother chad?
Abigail: Maybe because sami cheated on you. You want everyone to be just as miserable as you are. But let me tell you something, the stunt you pulled earlier was pathetic. Honestly, I’m embarrassed for you. That you can’t stop playing these stupid, petty, vindictive games. Now, I have tried to be a good sport, but I don’t need this.
Ej: Abigail, please–
Abigail: I’m out! And there’s nothing that you can say or do that will change my mind. I am done with you. And because of that, unfortunately, also done with the film.
Chad: No, no, you’re not. If someone’s going to quit it’s ej. Are you one of the millions of americans
Ej: And why the hell should I quit?
Chad: Because no one wants you involved, ej! Not even your own son. You had to strong-arm him into–
Abigail: Chad, it’s okay. I don’t mind backing out.
Chad: No, no way. All right, look, this movie means a lot to you, all right? And I’m not gonna let you quit.
Ej: See, even your husband agrees with me.
Chad: Shut your mouth, ej! Look, abby, don’t let him ruin this for you, okay? From the moment you read the script, you’ve been so excited, all right? And you wanted to do something different and get out of your comfort zone, and you are gonna make a great marlena, all right? When you and I read that love scene about john and marlena, look, you were–you were amazing.
Ej: As she will be when she plays opposite me.
Chad: Look, I get that you’re trying to bother me, ej, but it doesn’t work, okay? I will never distrust my wife again. I’ve done it with two of my brothers. I’m not gonna do it with you, so give it up ’cause her and I, our love is strong, and you’re not gonna come between us, you understand? There’s nothing you can do to change that.
[Soft dramatic music]
Ej: See you at rehearsal.
Theo: I’m so glad that you’re okay.
Abe: You know, I–ever since I met paulina, I have been more than okay.
Theo: You got engaged pretty fast. And I know that I’m not one to talk but–
Abe: Theo, you can talk to me anytime. You know, son, no one– no one could ever replace your mother. That’s not what this marriage is all about.
Theo: Dad, I know. And I know that mom would want you to be happy.
Abe: Yeah. I am happy. Paulina has made me happier than I ever thought I would be again.
Paulina: Chanel. Where did you come from?
Chanel: The elevator. I wanted to see how you were holding up but, apparently, you’re doing just fine.
Lani: I’m gonna go check on my dad.
Chanel: You asked lani to be your maid of honor?
Paulina: Uh-uh. Matron.
Chanel: Mama, I know you’ve been through a lot. And I am so glad that abe’s going to be okay. But hearing that you want lani by your side at the wedding and not me really hurts. Couldn’t–couldn’t you have told me first?
Paulina: Baby, I wasn’t planning it. When I first got engaged, of course, I thought you would be my maid of honor. But in the past 36 hours, lani and I, we’ve been through so much, and because her father, he was the one who was hurt, and she was so terribly, terribly worried. I–I just wanted to extend myself to her in some way, to distract her, you know? And when we found out that, you know, abe wasn’t gonna die, I just blurted out I wanted her to be my matron of honor. And I know now–I know–I know it was insensitive to you, so I owe you a big apology.
Chanel: You’re not the only one.
Allie: Spirits, should chanel forgive my brother for being such a dumbass?
Johnny: You’re hilarious.
Allie: I’m serious. You can’t just go around saying hurtful and obnoxious things and expect people to laugh it off. You’re acting just like ej.
Johnny: Ouch. You know I hate it when people say that I’m like my dad, the same way you feel when people say you’re like our mom.
Allie: Fair enough.
Johnny: Allie, I am sorry for being the way that I am. Can you please forgive me?
Allie: Fine. But I don’t know if chanel will.
Johnny: I should’ve never changed the subject anyway. I was on a roll running with the devil.
John: Doc will keep fighting. She’ll keep fighting for me, for us, for our love, and she will never stop. She’ll never stop.
Demon marlena: Hello, old friend. Have you missed me?
Here we are again.
Lani: How’s it going in here?
Abe: All good.
Lani: Ah, good to hear. So I have some good news. Aunt paulina just asked me to be her matron of honor.
Theo: Really? That’s great. But, you know, what about chanel?
Lani: Yeah. I had the same question. They’re out there talking now. What do you think, dad?
Abe: Well, I love the idea of both of my children standing up for us. As long as you agree to be my best man.
Theo: Are you sure?
Theo: Then I accept.
Abe: Ooh, that’s perfect. Perfect.
Lani: Only if chanel is okay with it.
Paulina: I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. And I would never leave you out of the ceremony. You’re going to have a very important role.
Chanel: What role?
Paulina: Well, my daddy died a long time ago, so I’m going to need someone to give me away, you know? Would you do me the honor of walking me down the aisle?
Chanel: If you do me the honor of letting me make your wedding cake.
Paulina: [Laughs] I wouldn’t dare think of anyone else.
Allie: I can’t believe you talked me into doing this again.
Johnny: Humor me. Is the devil here in salem?
Where in salem? D…
Both: I… M…
Abigail: It was very impressive how you stood up to ej.
Chad: You stood up to him too. I mean, letting him know that you’re willing to quit took guts. And you made it very clear that there–there’s more important things in life than playing this part. But I am glad that you are doing it.
Abigail: Are you sure?
Chad: Yes. 100% we are united in wanting you to do this movie. And in knowing that ej is not and will never be a threat to us.
Johnny: Did I just imagine that, or did the board just spell out dimera?
Allie: What does that mean?
Johnny: Okay. Spirits, tell us more. Is the devil at the mansion?
Okay. Then where? C… R… Y… P… T.
Both: The dimera crypt?
Demon marlena: Comfortable, john? Among all the dimera dead? I remember a time when you thought you were stefano’s brother. It turned out not to be true. You were nothing more than a pawn, but I thought it would be fitting to bring you here as your last resting place. You know, marlena stopped me from killing you at the chapel the other day, but now I’m back to finish what I started.
