Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Belle: Shawn? Hmm. Shawn, are you here? Hello? Who’s here?
Belle: Oh, my god!
Shawn: Not exactly the reaction I was hoping to get when I’m half naked. Oh, happy halloween.
Belle: Oh, my god. You are so gonna pay for that.
Shawn: Am I? How so, hmm?
Belle: Hmm, I’ll have to think of a few ways.
Belle: I thought we had to go have dinner with ciara and ben.
Shawn: We do. We do, and it sounds like she has some news for us.
Ben: Hey, jordan. I often think about how good of a sister you really were to me when we were kids. Nowadays, I’m trying to have kids of my own. And I really just wanna make sure I can give them a better life than we ever had so they don’t end up the way that I did… or you did.
Ciara: Are you okay?
Allie: So the devil’s at the dimera crypt?
Johnny: That was a more specific answer than I was expecting.
Allie: And you didn’t make that happen?
Johnny: No, no. Look, I mean, I’ll do it again. Spirits, is the devil at the dimera crypt?
Demon marlena: I thought it was fitting to bring you here as your last resting place. Marlena stopped me from killing you in the chapel, but now I’m back to finish what I started.
John: [Laughs] No, you can’T.
Demon marlena: I can, and I will. Come on, don’t be upset about this. You’ve had a good run. You may have vanquished me three decades ago, but I’m back now, and you are no match for me.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Ciara: I got your text. So I knew you would be here.
Ciara: You could have asked me to come with you, you know.
Ben: Ciara, jordan terrorized you. I wouldn’t expect you to wanna come here and pay your respects.
Ciara: Ben, she was sick.
Ben: I was sick.
Ciara: Yes, but the difference is, you got help and you overcame your mental illness.
Ben: Thanks to dr. Evans, you, your love, and your belief. That’s the only reason why I’m here.
Ciara: Can I ask you a question? Did you really come here just to visit jordan? Or are you still afraid that our baby might end up like her?
Shawn: So I told ciara that we’ll meet up at the pub after you’re done visiting your parents. How are they doing, by the way?
Belle: Well, unfortunately, I only saw my mom. My dad has left town on some, I don’t know, mysterious mission.
Shawn: Yeah? Did she say how long? I mean, I know it’s hard on her when he’s away.
Belle: Yeah, no, she seemed okay. I think she’s taking kind of a devil-may-care attitude, actually.
Shawn: What does that mean?
Belle: Well, for starters, she was literally dressed as the devil. Mm-hmm. She had like the horns and the tail and the whole weird glowy contact thing.
Shawn: That’s sort of a pretty odd choice for halloween costume, you know, considering her history.
Belle: Yeah. That’s what I said, but she said it was cathartic for her to own her past.
Shawn: Mm-hmm, okay. Whatever. I mean, she’s the expert, so…
Belle: She also said that she was supporting johnny’s new movie project, “possessed: The marlena evans story.”
Shawn: Hold on. Wait a minute. Wait, so she’s–like she’s letting johnny make a movie about her possession?
Shawn: But how does your dad feel about that? I mean, he can’t feel okay. I mean, dredging up their history and that awful time in their life?
Belle: I don’t know. I mean, he can’t be happy about it, but she’s totally into it. I don’t know. Maybe she’s really happy to just exorcise those demons once and for all.
Allie: This game is stupid.
Johnny: It’s not a game. You saw what the board did.
Allie: You’re just trying to freak me out on halloween.
Johnny: I wouldn’t do that. Not about this.
Allie: Well, I don’t care what you say, okay? The ouija board’s fake.
Johnny: Only one way to find out. Let’s go to the crypt and look for the devil.
John: You’ll never get away with this. All my family will never stop looking for me.
Demon marlena: You underestimate me again, john. It’s a fatal flaw. I’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that you don’t trip me up this time. You know what? Your beloved tink is back in town. And she wanted to reunite with her father.
John: You saw–you saw izzy?
Demon marlena: Yes, I did. Marlena explained to her that you were on an extended business trip.
Demon marlena: Yes. And soon marlena will be notified that there was a terrible mishap overseas, that her beloved husband, that john, died in some mysterious mission. Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo. Everybody will grieve. They’ll light candles and they’ll say prayers. And they’ll say, “oh no, no. Why did you take that wonderful, amazing, loving man?” They’ll have no idea that I was the one who ended your life while you’re all chained up like a dog.
John: [Gagging] As someone who resembles someone else,
Anna: She didn’T.
Anna: Oh, tony. I didn’t hear you come in.
Tony: Oh, that’s because you were so engrossed in johnny’s script. Where did you get that?
Anna: Oh, I borrowed it from abigail. Tony, have you read this latest version? It’s incredible.
Tony: Well, I’m sure it is.
Anna: We really need to be involved in this movie.
Tony: I told you we can’t because ej wants johnny to work at dimera, not making movies.
Anna: I know, darling, but that’s old news. Ej is not only investing in this movie, he is playing the role of john black.
Tony: He is?
Anna: Yes. And if he can be in the movie, I think you should be too.
Tony: Me? As who?
Anna: As tony, of course.
Tony: You want me to play tony?
Anna: Who better to play tony than my tony?
Tony: Well, let’s not forget it wasn’t me. It was my cousin, andre, who usurped my life at that point.
Anna: Well, that just makes it a more challenging role to play, but I know you’d be brilliant. I’m calling johnny right now, and I’m going to throw your hat in the ring.
Tony: Oh no, no, no. You’ll do no such thing.
Allie: There is no way that I’m going with you to that crypt.
Johnny: Why? You’re scared you might come face to face with the devil?
Allie: No, because I have plans with tripp.
Johnny: Oh, convenient.
Allie: Why do you care if I go with you? What, you’re too scared to go alone?
Johnny: I’m not scared. I’m inspired. I mean, what better way to research my film than to come face to face with the devil himself? And I intend to get it all on camera.
Allie: You’re wasting your time.
Johnny: Why would the spirits tell us the devil’s at the crypt if he’s not?
Allie: There are no spirits, and there’s nothing in the crypt.
Johnny: Yeah. Well, we’ll see about that.
John: Doc, I know you’re in there. I need your help. Come back, come back to me.
Demon marlena: Your precious doc tried fighting me yesterday. I’ll give her this, it was a valiant effort, but she fell short.
John: I know that you’re still in there. I know that you’re still fighting, so fight for me, doc. Fight for us. Fight for our love.
Ben: I can’t pretend that I am completely over my worries about having a kid. And, of course, I think about jordan and how she turned up. But mainly I have to just trust that your goodness is gonna shine through.
Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yes, and our baby will have what you and jordan never had, a house filled with so much love.
Ben: You cold?
Ciara: No, I’m not cold. It’s just, this place is kind of creepy.
Ben: Yeah. I mean, we are in a cemetery on halloween night.
Ciara: Yeah, I noticed.
Ciara: Look, my brother and belle just got back from south africa after visiting claire. And they wanted to have dinner with us at the pub. But if you’re not feeling up to it–
Ben: No, no, no I–no. I’m I’m up for it. I’d like that. I wanna see ’em.
Ciara: Are you sure?
Ben: Yes. I think I’ve said all I needed to say to jordan right now. I feel a lot better.
Ciara: I’m glad. I order my groceries online now.
Ciara: It is so good to see you.
Belle: You too. You too. Come here, you.
Ben: Hey, hey, hey. Good to see you.
Belle: Thanks. You too. Sit.
Ciara: So where is that brother of mine?
Shawn: Hey, I’m late. Late as usual. I’m sorry, sorry. I was checking up on abe’s condition, sorry.
Ben: How is he doing?
Shawn: He’s doing a lot better.
Ben: Yeah. Good, good. Good. That’s great news.
Ciara: Yeah. We heard that jake was brought in for the shooting.
Ciara: That is so weird. We were with gabi and jake right before it happened.
Shawn: You were?
Ciara: Yeah, we were supposed to have breakfast with them.
Shawn: Well, wait, wait, so was he acting strangely? Like did he say or did he do–did he seem agitated or, like, did he seem upset in any way?
Ben: Ciara was inside with gabi, and I was with jake right before he left.
Shawn: Okay. So did he say anything that would be relevant to this investigation?
Anna: You don’t want to be in johnny’s movie?
Tony: Have you forgotten that abigail is playing marlena?
Tony: So marlena is my peer, and I’m abigail’s senior by decades.
Anna: So he’ll rewrite the character. How can you not be dying to play such a pivotal role?
Tony: Because I don’t think it’s that pivotal.
Anna: Are you kidding? Tony is a man at a crossroads in his life and in his marriage. He’s married to kristen, but he’s seething with jealousy because his wife is secretly attracted to another man: The sexy priest, father john black.
John: [Croaking] Help me… doc, please, help me.
Demon marlena: There’s no one coming for you, john. I can feel the life force draining out of your body even now.
Johnny: That’s weird. Always used to be a key in the lock.
Demon marlena: Let go, john! Let the sweet relief of eternity flow over you.
Johnny: Hey, lucifer, you in there?
John: Help me, please.
Demon marlena: Dammit.
Johnny: If you’re in there, satan, my name’s johnny. I’m a filmmaker. Love to meet you. Okay. So much for the ouija board.
Grandma? Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Shawn: What did jake say to you outside, ben?
Ben: He told me that he had something to take care of, and then he took off.
Shawn: All right. Did you suspect that there was something wrong?
Ben: I’m telling you everything that he told me, brother.
Shawn: Okay. All right, all right. But if you think of anything else, you can let me know.
Ben: I will.
Ciara: Okay, wait, wait, wait, did you come here to give my husband the third degree or…
Shawn: Okay, okay, it’s my job.
Ciara: To enjoy some clam chowder and hear about our honeymoon?
Belle: Yes, ciara’s right. Let’s eat. And I wanna hear all about new orleans. Was it amazing? Tell me everything.
Ciara: Was amazing. The food, incredible. The music, the music was–
Shawn: Please tell me you went to all the places that mom and dad went to, and tell me that you went to oak alley.
Ciara: Oh, we did. It was beautiful. And it’s really moving to see how they’re confronting their history by teaching the visitors about it.
Shawn: Hmm. All right. I bet it is. So what else did you guys do?
Ben: The usual honeymoon stuff. Ciara and I helped the isa recover a stolen gemstone.
Shawn: What the–
Ciara: Yeah, yeah, it’s a really long story, and I’ll be more than happy to tell you all about it later. But right now, we actually have some really special news to share.
Shawn: Oh yeah?
Belle: Tell us, what is it?
Ciara: Well, as wonderful as the trip ended up being, it helped us come to a pretty big, life-changing decision about our future.
Shawn: And what is that?
Ciara: Well, we’re trying to have a baby.
Johnny: Grandma, what are you– what are you doing here, and dressed like that?
Marlena: When I finished your script, I wanted you to know that I liked it.
Johnny: Thank you. But that still doesn’t explain what you’re doing here inside the dimera family crypt.
Marlena: When you weren’t at home, I thought I would just take a stroll.
Marlena: And then I got here, and there was a key in the lock. So I thought I’d take a moment to pay my respects to your grandfather.
Johnny: Dressed like the… devil?
Marlena: It’s a halloween costume. I did it for you.
Johnny: Well, that’s cool, I think. So you like the script?
Marlena: I did. I found the script powerful and accurate.
Johnny: You know, this crypt could be a really cool location for my movie. I barely even have to dress the set. Ow. Ow.
Marlena: Sorry. I wouldn’t go in there if I were you.
Johnny: Is there a problem with me going inside?
Tony: You know, a less confident man would feel threatened by you calling john black sexy. Excuse me.
Anna: Well, honey, I’m just being honest. I mean, 30 years ago, that man in a collar? Whew. And to kristen, he was forbidden fruit. I mean, according to the script, anyway, she was a young woman of great faith who was torn between her devotion to her poor blind husband and her attraction to the hot priest.
Tony: Oh, so now he’s sexy and hot.
Anna: Well, as was tony. Yes. Let’s just say that kristen was deeply conflicted.
Tony: I thought this movie was about marlena.
Anna: It is, but it’s kristen who drives the action. She’s one of the first to recognize that evil has come to salem.
Tony: Oh, sounds like quite the plum role. I wonder who johnny’s gonna cast.
Anna: Well, as far as I can tell, there’s only one person that’s actually perfect for the role.
Tony: Hmm, who?
Anna: Oh, you’re looking at her.
Tony: I think I need a drink.
Why hide your skin if dupixent
Tony: You wanna play kristen?
Anna: Well, if you are going to play tony, it just makes sense.
Tony: Well, let’s not forget that kristen left tony for john.
Anna: Yes. But as you pointed out, it was really andre that kristen jilted.
Tony: But she didn’t know that.
Anna: You know, I don’t know why this really matters. And I don’t know why you’re being so resistant.
Tony: Because I’m hardly enthusiastic about revisiting a dark chapter in my family’s history.
Anna: Okay. What if we ask johnny to rewrite the tony and kristen subplot and–oh, and highlight their love story. And then, in this version, they can end up living happily ever after, just like us.
Marlena: There is something in the crypt I don’t want you to see.
Johnny: What is it?
Marlena: A rat, a big nasty rat.
Johnny: A rat? I’m not afraid of a rat. In fact, I am writing one into my movie. Did you know that some people call rodents the devil’s disciples?
Marlena: I think there are even some non-rodent disciples. I think you should stay away from it.
Johnny: You sure you didn’t see anything else in there?
Marlena: I don’t think so.
Now what brought you out here?
Johnny: It’s gonna sound weird.
Marlena: Well, not much surprises me.
Johnny: Okay. Well, allie and i were using a ouija board, and we asked it if the devil was in salem.
Marlena: Hmm. Did you get an answer?
Johnny: The board spelled out that he was here, at this crypt.
Marlena: The spirits are on to me.
Johnny: What? Ah, right, yes. The board knew, I guess.
Marlena: Or the spirits knew.
Johnny: You believe in that?
Marlena: Yeah. I guess I should. I mean, after what happened to me, you know, I think I’d be crazy not to believe in the supernatural. Believe that it’s real.
Johnny: And that’s why I’m making my movie.
Marlena: Yes. Look, I know that you have skeptics, and some even in your own family. But I think it’s important that you carry out your vision. I mean, this movie is going to let people know there are forces out there that people can’t begin to understand. And they have no idea what the devil is capable of doing.
Ciara: We put a lot of thought into this decision.
Ben: Mainly because of the history of mental illness on my side of the family.
Belle: Yeah, of course.
Ciara: Yeah. Ben actually spoke to your mom about it, belle.
Ben: Yeah, she really went out of her way, belle, to reassure me that no matter what genes our child ends up with, the love that we give our child is really what’s gonna be the most important.
Belle: Oh, so she helped you.
Ciara: Yeah. After speaking with her, ben felt a lot better about the situation.
Ben: I mean, she flat-out told us that we should have a child. And ever since then, she’s just been texting me and calling me and just really making sure that we’re moving forward with the whole plan.
Ciara: Yeah. She’s been very invested in me having a baby.
Belle: Huh? She doesn’t usually tell people what to do or make it so personal.
Ciara: Yeah. Oh, I’m sorry. Is all this baby talk making you tired? Is it boring you?
Belle: Oh, sleepy.
Ben: Oh, man.
Shawn: I’m sorry. This jet lag is killing me right now. I’m sorry. You guys mind if we go home, and we’ll pick this up another time before I hit my head on this plate and fall asleep?
Ben: No, no, no, go ahead. Go ahead; let’s go get you some sleep, brother. Good to see you.
Shawn: Yeah, you too. Congratulations.
Ben: Thank you.
Belle: Good luck with the baby making.
Ben: Thank you.
Belle: Oh, my god, is that such a weird thing to say?
Ciara: No, it’s not. It was so good seeing you.
Belle: So good to see you too. Oops, oh, let me grab this.
Ben: Oh, sorry. Don’t forget that.
Belle: All right. See you guys later.
Ben: See you guys.
Ciara: All right, bye.
Belle: It was nice to see you.
Ben: You barely touched your new england clam chowder. What’s going on? You want me to order something else?
Ciara: No, I’m actually not that hungry. Yeah, my stomach has been kind of funky all day.
Ben: You’re not feeling well?
Ciara: I actually think that it might be something else.
Ben: Something else?
Ciara: Yeah. I stopped by the pharmacy before I came to find you.
Ben: Is that what I think it is?
Ciara: Well, if you think it’s a pregnancy test, then yeah. It’s exactly what you think it is. I thought I was managing my moderate
Anna: So shall we offer our services to johnny and request a rewrite?
Tony: Well, let’s just say that he takes out the conflict between tony and kristen. Doesn’t that water down the story, huh?
Anna: Well, see, you are intrigued.
Tony: No, I just don’t think that an audience would like to see a married couple drinking champagne and talking about how much in love they are.
Anna: I disagree. I think people love to watch other people in love.
Tony: Well that’s because you know more about drama than I do.
Anna: How about I find us a good tony and kristen scene, and we can rehearse it together? Then we’ll be prepared to pitch ourselves to johnny.
Tony: Ah, hmm… you really think he’d want to cast us?
Anna: Darling, if you can bring one tenth of your natural passion and charm to the role, he’ll be begging to get us on camera.
Tony: Okay. Okay.
Johnny: Can I take a picture of you in that costume?
Johnny: Well, allie told me that the ouija board was nonsense and that I wasn’t gonna find anything out here. I just wanna show her that she was wrong.
Marlena: Well, you didn’t exactly find the devil, did you?
Johnny: Still, you are here, and you’re dressed like that, so spirits didn’t lie, did they?
[Rattling sound] Did you hear that?
Marlena: I didn’t hear anything.
Johnny: It sounded like chains or something. You didn’t?
Marlena: Maybe it’s the spirits.
Johnny: I don’t think ghosts actually rattle chains. You really didn’t hear that?
Marlena: You have a wonderful imagination. It’s one of the reasons I love you and another reason that you’re gonna make a wonderful movie.
Johnny: Thank you, grandma. Let’s get out of here.
Marlena: Yeah, go ahead. I’ll catch up.
Demon marlena: I’ll deal with you another time, john black.
Shawn: Well, I cannot believe that my little sister is gonna be a mom.
Belle: I know. Oh, I’m so happy for them.
Shawn: It sounds like your mom really helped them out.
Belle: Yeah. Yeah. I’m glad she’s able to be there for them. I don’t know. Don’t you think it’s kind of strange that she keeps following up like that? You know, making sure that they’re still trying to have a baby?
Shawn: I mean, she’s always been really invested in ben’s health and happiness, so I don’t know, it makes sense.
Belle: Yeah. Just seems like maybe she’s a little overly invested in ben and ciara having a child.
Ben: Do you really think you could be pregnant right now already?
Ciara: Well, I am a day late, and usually I am like clockwork, so…
Ben: Well I–
Ben: I guess we should head home and you can take that test.
Ciara: Yeah. Or I can take it right now.
Ben: Right now, now, like here now?
Ciara: Yeah, like right here right now.
Ben: Right, right. Okay.
Ciara: Like right… okay, breathe. It’s gonna be okay, babe.
Ciara: I’ll be right back.
Ben: All right.
Tony: You know, all this talk about the past has reminded me of when I first came to salem… oh, drumroll please, 40 years ago?
Anna: Oh, darling. You’re much too young to have done anything 40 years ago.
Tony: You always say the sweetest things to me, but it’s true. And that’s when I came to salem, at that time, that long ago.
Anna: A lot of crazy things have happened since then.
Tony: Yeah. Crazy things, sad things, wonderful things. But to me, the most wonderful thing of all was falling in love with you, my precious anna.
Anna: Your precious anna is one very lucky woman.
Tony: No, no, no, no, no. The lucky one, well, that’s me. I knew it from the start. I mean, the smartest thing I ever did was marrying you.
Anna: Are you serious? Tonight?
Tony: Yes. I’m serious. I want you to marry me tonight, right now.
Oh, let it hold you
oh, let it taste your lips
if only for this moment
for you I would do it again
’cause I wanna love you
gets better from here
and I’m with you come
’cause beautiful days
turn to years
but if only the sunset
oh, let it
capture this night
only this moment so perfect
for you I’ll do it again
even for just one kiss
I’ll do it all just for this
Tony: Anna, it’s best decision I ever made those 40 years ago coming to salem… falling in love with you and marrying you, and that’s because, mm, anna, you are the light of my life.
Anna: And don’t you ever, ever forget it.
Tony: Never, never, never.
Demon marlena: So nice to be back among the dead tonight. And, of course, my favorites, the really bad ones. Oh, ben, looks like you’ve been to visit your sister. Soon she won’t be the only bad seed in the family.
Ben: Hey. Baby, maybe it was just a stomachache after all. You know, it’s probably too soon for us to even get pregnant anyway, right? But I promise you, we’re gonna go home, and we’re gonna keep trying and trying. What are you doing? What is that? Are you saying that– because you’re not really saying anything at all, but judging by the little smile on your face–what…
Ciara: We’re having a baby.
Ben: Having a baby?
Ciara: We’re having a baby. Are you happy?
Ben: Am I happy?
Ciara: Are you happy?
Ben: Am I happy? Am I happy? Am I happy? Am I happy? Are you kidding me right now? Are you kidding right now?
Ciara: No, I’m being serious. We’re having a baby.
Ben: We’re having a baby.
Ciara: You’re gonna be a dad.
Ben: You’re gonna be a mom.
Ciara: I’m gonna be a mom.
Ben: I love you, mama. Mom, I love you. And I love that we are about to have a baby together. Are you kidding?
Ciara: I’m serious.
Ben: Are you–
Demon marlena: Your child will be mine, ben. Nothing can stop that. Not marlena, and certainly poor old john black.
John: I gotta get outta here. I’ve gotta save marlena. I’ve gotta save all of salem from pure evil.
Demon marlena: So… little allie horton doesn’t believe in the supernatural, even after what I did to her grandmother. I guess I’ll just have to make her a believer. Rise up, rise up, charlie dale, and prove to allie that my powers are real.
