Days of Our Lives Transcript

Brady: That jackass thinks I slept with chloe. I gotta warn her.
[Groans] Where’d you put your phone, brady?
Kristen: Oh, brady. I wish I could stay, but don’t you worry. I won’t be gone long.
Victor: Who’s this?
Melinda: Good evening to you too, mr. Kiriakis. It’s melinda trask. So I guess our deal is off.
Victor: Why would you say that?
Melinda: Well, I haven’t heard from you, so I assume that means you haven’t found kristen dimera.
Kristen: Oh, baby, hi. It’s me. It’s me.
Ej: Nicole. I was just thinking about you.
Nicole: Oh. Well, I got your message about dinner, and I was hoping the invitation still stands.
Kristen: I can’t believe you left your phone alone with those nosy do-gooders.
Ej: Actually, they weren’t alone. Of course the invitation still stands. I’m so very glad you decided to accept.
Nicole: Thank you.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Philip: Were you expecting someone else?
Chloe: No. Just surprised to see you here.
Philip: Why? I mean, I know you moved out, but we’re still together, right?
Chloe: Yeah, but we haven’t spoken since I left the mansion, and I didn’t tell you where I was going.
Victor: It’s only been 24 hours.
Melinda: I’m the district attorney. Every minute that goes by, the people of salem grow more impatient. They know that one of your nephews was arrested for drug trafficking and the other for blackmailing a judge. Now, I’m prepared to dismiss the charges against them if you give me ms. Dimera. Otherwise, I’ll proceed to trial. Now, do you have her or not?
Victor: I haven’t managed to track down that she-devil as yet.
Melinda: In other words, you can’t come through.
Victor: Nonsense. I’ve got steve johnson on the case. I assure you, he’ll find her. Good evening, ms. Trask.
Jack: Were you just talking with the da?
Victor: Maybe we can get her to prosecute you for eavesdropping.
Jack: Aw, come on, victor. As long as I’m here, why don’t you tell me about the deal you just made with her?
Xander: Am I being released?
Melinda: Why would you think that?
Xander: I thought my uncle victor–
Melinda: You thought wrong. Your uncle hasn’t met my terms.
Xander: Then what am i doing up here?
Melinda: Someone demanded to see you.

Kristen: Oh, sweetheart, I missed you so, so much.
Rachel: Daddy said you had to go away.
Kristen: I did, I did. But I never wanted to leave you. But guess what? Tonight, I am so excited, because I got to come see you. But you know what, sweetie, rachel, I need you to promise me that it’ll just be between you and I. Can you do that for me? That’s my good little girl. Oh, sweetheart, I have missed you. I’ve missed you so much. Do you know what I miss most about? This–mm-hmm. I missed reading you bedtime stories, and I missed picking out–well, helping you pick out your clothes, because I know how much you like to do that on your own. But I bet you have to wear that funny little coat– that peach coat, now that it’s colder out, yeah?
Rachel: I wore it pumpkin picking with daddy and chloe.
Kristen: That-that’s nice. That’s nice. You, daddy, and chloe. Well, that must have been a fun trip. Hey. Hey, speaking of trips, how about you and I go on a trip of our own, just the two of us? What do you think? Yeah?
Chloe: Philip, how did you know I was here?
[Phone ringing] Sorry, one second.
Philip: Do you need to get that?
Chloe: No. It’s not important.
Brady: Hey, chlo, listen, it’s me. I wanted to give you a heads up. Lucas just left. Apparently he and philip saw me carrying your bags into the salem inn last night. Philip has assumed the worst, and he thinks that we spent the night together. Now, I refused to dignify his accusation by getting into it, so I didn’t tell lucas anything. But I wanted you to know, just in case you were blindsided by one of philip’s famous freak-outs.
Nicole: I’m really glad that I’m here with you tonight. It’s keeping me from losing it over abe.
Ej: I’m terribly sorry about what happened.
Nicole: It’s just shocking. The mayor being shot at point blank range in the park, I–
[Sighs] I know he’s gonna be okay. I know it.
Ej: I’m sure sending your love his way will make a big difference.
Nicole: Yeah, I don’t know.
Ej: I do. How’s the pizza?
Nicole: It’s great. But I do have to say, when you invited me over for dinner, I didn’t think we’d be having takeout.
Ej: Were you thinking a 12-course repast in the formal dining room?
Nicole: To be honest, yes.
Ej: I do tend towards ceremony. But I quite enjoy being spontaneous from time to time.
Nicole: Like when?
Ej: Well, I don’t think a man who would marry samantha brady or nicole walker would be inclined to an entirely predictable life.
Nicole: Probably not.
Ej: And being unpredictable can keep one’s enemies on their toes. When you employ the element of surprise, it makes it that much harder for them to betray you.
Xander: Gwen, how are you?
Gwen: Not bad. All things considered.
Xander: I’ve missed you.
Gwen: I’ve missed you too.
Xander: How have they been treating you?
Gwen: You’ve got 30 minutes, and there’s a cop right outside the door, so don’t try anything stupid. No touching! My nunormal?
Xander: God, I wish I could kiss you.
Gwen: I know, me too. But look, we don’t have much time. Talk to me. Tell me what’s going on.
Xander: Well, I did see your father last night.
Gwen: Did he give you my message?
Xander: You mean did he tell me that you were willing to confess so I can go free? Gwen, what are you thinking?
Gwen: You don’t belong here.
Xander: We’ve been over this.
Gwen: But you don’t deserve to be locked up here. You had nothing to do with it.
Xander: I can think of quite a few people who disagree with you.
Gwen: Well, it’s out of your hands now. My father is going to go and speak to the da.
Xander: No, he’s not! I told you not to say a word to that witch!
Gwen: Xander, if you want to atone for your sins, there has to be a better way.
Xander: Like what? Go see a priest, say a few hail marys? Sorry, darling, that ship has sailed.
Gwen: Why are you so bloody stubborn?
Xander: I’m not just gonna abandon you, gwen. We’re in this together. Besides, there might be another way out of here.
Gwen: Yeah, I did hear about that. Bonnie told me that justin told her that trask might consider dropping the charges against the four of us. But it seems like wishful thinking, no?
Xander: Not necessarily. There is a plan in the works.
Victor: What deal? I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Jack: I think you do. I saw xander last night. He said trask strongly implied she was about to drop the charges against him. You have anything to do with that? Maybe you made some sort of arrangements?
Victor: Suppose that were the case. What the hell do you care?
Jack: Of course I care, victor. I don’t want them going to prison. Xander’s my friend, justin will always be family, and gwen’s my daughter.
Victor: Whoa, who said anything about gwen?
Nicole: Betray you? What do you mean? You haven’t heard from sami, have you?
Ej: No, no, no, no. I wasn’t referring to my soon-to-be ex-wife’s indiscretion. I suppose I just have treachery on the brain.
Ej: You remember last night, when we had dinner, and steve johnson and his wife approached our table?
Nicole: It’s kind of hard to forget, especially because she was so smashed, and she knocked over that glass of wine and almost ruined your beautiful italian tie.
Ej: Right. And I had just assumed that she’d had a difficult day and over-indulged. But later, I realized that her drunken display was just a ruse. An aversion to allow her husband to tamper with my phone, which I’d left on the table in my haste to salvage my neckwear.
Nicole: Why would steve want to mess with your phone?
Ej: So he could track down my sister. Question is: Why would they have chosen that moment to do it? I mean, they must have known that you would have stopped steve from putting his hands on my personal property. Unless they had already organized another ruse to entice you away from the table as well. However, that just seems unlikely, considering you were all still there when I returned.
Nicole: Okay. Okay, I admit it. I let steve hack into your phone.
Kristen: Honey, I know that you don’t like wearing this jacket, but it’s only for a little while, all right?
Rachel: Shall we say goodbye to daddy?
Kristen: No, no, sweetie. We have to keep it a secret even from daddy. Yeah, yeah, this is a special, special trip for mommy and rachel, remember?
To be a thriver with
metastatic breast cancer
Chloe: Sorry about that.
Philip: No problem.
Chloe: So how did you know that I was here?
Philip: From your assistant.
Chloe: Oh, you mean grace.
Philip: Right, grace. I called your office. I figured she might have your new address. Don’t worry, she’s not giving your confidential information to random strangers. I told her I’m your boyfriend, which I still am, right?
Chloe: Yeah, of course.
Philip: Good. So, I was hoping we could have dinner together.
Chloe: Oh, you want to order some room service?
Philip: Unless you’ve already eaten.
Chloe: No, I have not.
Philip: Good. Because the fried chicken here is killer.
Ej: And what’s even more appalling than your betrayal is the fact that you had the nerve to show your face in this house! By all rights, I should fire you and throw you out!
Nicole: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for going behind your back, ej. I truly am. But I am not the least bit sorry that steve is hunting down your sister. Do you have any idea what she has done to people? Do you have any idea what she has done to me? She locked me up and she stole my life, so if steve wants to drag her ass back here, then I am all in.
Ej: I can understand your antipathy towards my sister. And while I would never try and sugarcoat what she did to you, you must know that kristen’s life isn’t easy right now. She’s on the run, separated from her daughter.
Nicole: And I sympathize with rachel, of course I do. ‘Cause it’s not her fault that she has a raging lunatic for a mother. That little girl suffers every day with confusion and sadness and pain.
Ej: My sister has made a lot of mistakes, big mistakes. But she is devoted to her daughter.
Nicole: A daughter that wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t stolen my identity, and she got pregnant because she slept with brady while she was pretending to be me!
Ej: Let’s not go there.
Nicole: No, we’re gonna go there! While kristen had me locked up, she kidnapped my daughter, and she wouldn’t let me have her back until I let her take over my life. And then when she did go back to salem, disguised as me, she told everyone that holly died in a horrific accident. You think about that, ej! Think about that! She faked the death of a child so she could suck brady back in. So I don’t give a damn how much kristen is hurting, ’cause I’ll never feel sorry for that miserable bitch.
Kristen: Get out of my way. My daughter and I have plans. Please, steve, this does not concern you.
Brady: Kristen. What’s going on? What are you doing? Why is steve here?
Steve: I’m on assignment. I can tell you more about that later. But right now, maybe you want to get this little girl back to bed.
Brady: That’s a good idea. Come on, honey. Let’s go, sweetie. Let’s get you back into bed, okay? Come on.
Kristen: You son of a bitch! I just wanted to spend time with my little girl.
Steve: Well, given the backpack and the coat, I’d say it was more than that.
Kristen: Why are you doing this? Why are you tracking me down like a dog?
Steve: Victor kiriakis hired me to find you.
Kristen: Oh god, I should have known. So you’re his bounty hunter now?
Steve: I’m a private investigator.
Kristen: Yeah, who gets paid to tear kids away from their mothers.
Steve: You’re a fugitive. You know that, right?
Kristen: Yeah, and I also know that you’re not a cop, so you can go straight to hell.
Steve: Okay, listen, listen, we can do this the easy way or the hard way, your choice.
Kristen: Easy way? Have you met me? Making things difficult is my stock-in-trade. I thought I was managing my moderate
Chloe: Mmm. Oh my god, this is so good.
Philip: Told you.
Chloe: I would never think, in a million years, to order the fried chicken here.
Philip: Mm-hmm. I love the food at the mansion, but this is one dish cook hasn’t quite mastered yet.
Chloe: Well, I don’t think victor’s really the “eat with your hands type. And the more that I’m doing it, I can understand why. Oh my goodness, do we have any extra napkins?
Philip: Here, take mine.
Chloe: Oh, thank you.
Philip: Your, uh, your face.
Philip: Your–you got something on your cheek.
Chloe: Oh, no.
Ej: I’m not denying that kristen committed a horrible crime against you.
Nicole: Then you can understand why I let steve hack into your phone.
Ej: I don’t like it. But yes. I understand your feelings very well. But I’m afraid i don’t share them. No matter what she’s done, kristen is still my sister. She’s extremely loyal, and has always looked out for me.
Nicole: I know she wrote you that letter exposing sami’s affair.
Ej: She saved me from a lifetime of humiliation. If she hadn’t opened my eyes, I’d have remained in my marriage, completely oblivious to the fact that I was being played for a fool. And it’s thanks to her that I knew I had to act. And by act, I mean permanently and immediately kicking samantha out of my house and out of my life.
Nicole: Well, if it’s permanently over with sami, then why are you still wearing your wedding ring?
Kristen: You have to make it so tight?
Steve: You were the one who wanted to make things difficult. Okay.
Kristen: How’s rachel?
Brady: She’s settled back into bed. She’s a little wound up, for obvious reasons. I don’t know if she’s gonna sleep for a while. What are you doing?
Kristen: Just wanted to see our little girl.
Brady: So you broke in.
Kristen: I haven’t seen her for months, brady.
Brady: What was your plan, kristen? You sneak in here–where were you gonna take her?
Kristen: No, I just wanted to spend a little time with her, that’s all.
Brady: My god, I can’t– I can’t believe you did that. Just when I think all this psycho behavior is done, you do this crap again.
Kristen: Oh my god, how can you be so cruel? I am all alone. After you cut me off, rachel’s all in have left. And I have no contact with her.
Brady: Kristen, who’s fault is that?
Kristen: I can’t do this anymore. I can’t do it; I can’t bear it. I can’t bear–I can’t bear never hearing her little voice or holding her little hand. I miss her, brady. I miss her so much. And I know she misses me too. I could see it in her eyes.
Steve: Okay, come on, let’s go.
Kristen: No, no! Please, don’t let him do this. Don’t let him take me away. Stop it. I know I’ve done terrible things. I know I have. But I am still rachel’s mother.
Steve: Okay, let’s go. Come on.
Kristen: You know what, you know who’s behind all this? You know who steve’s on assignment for? Your grandfather.
Kristen: Yeah. That’s what mr. Black patch here just told me. Victor is paying him to do this. Can you believe that? That monster–what he already did to me, what he did to us, brady.
Brady: Is that true?
Kristen: Don’t let this happen. That heartless bastard separated me from rachel once before. I am begging you, don’t let him do it again. Please.
Jack: So you’re just gonna let gwen and bonnie languish in jail?
Victor: I don’t care where they languish. I’m dealing with my family. Anyone else, not my concern.
Jack: If you really want to deal with your family, you might want to reconsider.
Victor: Why is that?
Jack: Well, you may not care about those two women, but your nephews certainly do. Xander’s gone to great lengths to protect gwen, and justin was about to marry bonnie. How do you think he’s gonna feel when he finds out that you could have intervened on bonnie’s behalf and chose not to? Do you think he’ll ever want to hear from you again? Do you think he’ll ever forgive you? And I know you’ve had a very rocky relationship with xander, but you obviously still care about him. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be helping him. And he cares about gwen, very much.
Victor: He’ll get over it.
Jack: I don’t think so. He sees this as an all-or-nothing situation. Same as justin. They all get out or they all stay in.
Victor: That’s insane.
Jack: No, victor, that’s love. Let me tell you, the only way that justin and xander will get on board with your plan is if it includes gwen and bonnie. If it doesn’t, you might as well forget the whole thing.
Gwen: So what is the plan?
Xander: Apparently, my uncle vic made a deal with the da to get the charges against us dropped. If it works out, we’ll both get off scot-free. But for now, we just have to sit tight.
Gwen: Well, I can understand why victor would want to get the charges dropped against you and justin, ’cause you’re family. He doesn’t know me, and he despises bonnie.
Xander: Don’t overthink it, darling. Just be grateful that we might be getting out of here.
Gwen: Doesn’t really seem like trask, either. Why would she let four people she has dead to rights off the hook?
Xander: Uncle victor must have offered her something huge. Justin and I talked about it, but we couldn’t figure out what. I should mention, speaking of justin, that I kind of blurted out something stupid when I talked to him.
Gwen: Something stupid?
Xander: I might have told him that you were never a sex worker.
Xander: I didn’t mean to. It’s just, he made a comment about you being tough enough to handle prison because of your past experience in that particular profession, and I just said it without thinking.
Gwen: Xander, if he doesn’t think that I was a sex worker, then what-what is it that he thinks that snyder was holding over me?
Xander: He doesn’t know. And I told him that it’s just better for everyone if we keep up the cover story. Trust me, he has no idea that you lied to your father and everyone else about the timing of your miscarriage.
Gwen: Thank god. Because xander, my father would never forgive me if he knew that I was letting abigail blame herself, even though she had nothing to do with it.
Xander: You don’t have to worry about that. I promise you. Justin’s totally in the dark. You and I are the only two people that know the truth.
[Door creaks open]
Ej: Are you insinuating I’m still carrying a torch for samantha?
Nicole: It’s not a crime to still have feelings for your wife, to admit it. Look, when eric and I broke up, I didn’t want to take off my ring. It felt so final, that it would just really be over, and I was so scared to say goodbye.
Ej: I said goodbye and good riddance to samantha the moment I threw her out of this house. Believe me, I am more than ready to take off this bloody ring.
Nicole: I know how difficult it is.
Ej: You’re right. Because the damn thing’s stuck. Yes, I realize the irony.
Nicole: Okay. Well, let me–let me help you. Fingers are still greasy from the pizza.
Philip: That might have been even better than the chicken.
Chloe: Might have been?
Philip: No, it totally was. I think I want seconds.
Philip: Is that okay with you? Any interest in getting horizontal?
Chloe: Mm, I would, but can I take a rain check, please?
Philip: Okay, yeah.
Chloe: Yeah, I’m just, I’m really tired. I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night.
Brady: I can’T. Can’t do it, kristen.
Kristen: You’re just gonna– you’re gonna let him drag me away?
Brady: You were going to kidnap my daughter.
Kristen: Our–our daughter. And I wasn’t going to kidnap her. She’s my child, too, and I just wanted to spend a little time with her, brady, that’s all.
Brady: You are–you are– you are running from the law. Did you give one thought as to what would happen if you got caught? How much that would traumatize that little girl in there? How much do you want to put her through, huh?
Kristen: I’m sorry.
Brady: Oh, you’re sorry? I’m sorry too. I’m sorry more than you can imagine. I’m also the guy that has to go in there and try to explain this to her.
Kristen: You know what, just let me stay, and then we can talk to her together, please.
Brady: Oh my god, it’s out of the question.
Kristen: So that’s it. You’re not gonna help me.
Brady: I’m sorry, after what you pulled tonight, I can’t believe you have the audacity to even ask me that.
Kristen: Is this about chloe?
Brady: Oh my god, chloe? What are you talking about?
Kristen: Well, I–I heard about your little trip to the pumpkin patch. I mean, is that why you want to get rid of me, because rachel will have a new mommy?
Brady: Oh, kristen, I have no idea what the hell you’re talking about.
Kristen: That whore has been moving in on my family for months!
Brady: Shut up! She’s is sleeping. Keep your voice down.
Kristen: I am her mother. You cannot replace me, brady.
Brady: All right, steve.
Kristen: You can’t replace me!
Brady: Get her out.
Kristen: I’m her mother.
Brady: Get her out!
Kristen: I am her mother!
Steve: Okay, okay.
Kristen: Do you hear me?
Kristen: Brady, I’m her mother.
Victor: You have a law degree that I don’t know about?
Victor: Well, that’s too bad. You’d have made a hell of an attorney.
Jack: Does that mean you’ll help gwen and bonnie?
Victor: Not that good.
Jack: Oh, victor. You really need to think this through.
Victor: And you need to scram so I can eat in peace.
Jack: It’d be so easy for you, victor. One phone call to the da.
Victor: You want to get the charges against your daughter dropped, make your own deal.
Jack: What would it cost me?
Victor: Cost you?
Jack: I assume you had to pay trask off.
Victor: You see, that’s the beauty of this whole thing. I don’t have to pay her a damn dime.
Melinda: Time’s up.
Xander: You said we had 30 minutes!
Melinda: Oh, did I? I meant 15. You may have rights, but I’m not a pushover.
[Phone rings] I have to take this. An officer will accompany you back to your cells. Here we are again.
[Both chuckle] Got it.
Ej: Well done. Thank you.
Nicole: Ah, uh, yeah. Well, now that that’s done, I-I should be going, and–
Ej: So soon?
Nicole: Yes, I’m–I’m gonna relieve the sitter. I like to tuck holly in bed when I can, so. Thank you for the pizza and understanding about the phone.
Ej: I may have resorted to some less-than-honorable tactics from time to time myself. So it would be hypocritical of me to hold it against you. Now, as, um, a show that everything is okay, can we at least kiss and make up?
Nicole: Yeah, um. I should–thank you. Uh, good night.
Chloe: Mm, so we’ll get together another night, okay? Maybe another fried chicken dinner?
Philip: Sure. Like you said, you’re tired.
Philip: Talk tomorrow?
Chloe: Definitely. Good night.
Philip: Sleep well.
Brady: Hey, chlo, listen, it’s me. I wanted to give you a heads up. Lucas just left. Apparently he and philip saw me carrying your bags into the salem inn last night. Philip has assumed the worst, and he thinks that we spent the night together. I’m so sorry, honey. Mommy had to go away again. But I don’t want you to worry, because I’m here for you. I will always be here for you.
Xander: “You have rights, but I’m not a pushover.” I mean, we might be her prisoners, but she doesn’t have to play mind games.
Gwen: Xander, how cares if she cut our visit short?
Xander: I do! I haven’t seen you in days!
Gwen: But what if that was just a huge mistake, us talking like this out in the open? What if she heard?
Xander: Heard what?
Gwen: You assuring me that we are the only ones who know what snyder was blackmailing me with.
Xander: No, she couldn’t have. We heard her open the door. I said all that before she came in. Look, we’re already in enough trouble. We don’t have to invent more. Before you know it, this is all gonna be an unpleasant memory.
Gwen: You really think so?
Xander: Trust me. I know so. Everything’s gonna be okay.
Jack: So that’s how you made this deal. You offered to trade kristen for xander and justin.
Victor: She was all too happy to accept. Considering the fact that kristen killed her daughter. Wasn’t haley dating your son?
Jack: Yes. Jj was in love with her.
Victor: Well, then you should be happy about this too, deveraux. Win for both of us. And a nice payday for your brother.
Victor: I put him on the case. In fact, he should be delivering the goods any minute now.
Melinda: Mr. Johnson, I was very pleased to get your call. I assume you have kristen dimera in your custody?
Steve: I do.
Melinda: Wonderful. If you’ll hand her over to me, I’ll get the ball rolling in dismissing the charges against the two kiriakises.
Steve: Well, I’m afraid I can’t do that just yet.
Melinda: I’m sorry?
Steve: If you want kristen, you’re gonna have to drop the charges against bonnie and gwen too.
Melinda: That wasn’t a part of the deal.
Steve: It is now.
