Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Trask: I’m afraid I don’t know what money you’re talking about.
Gwen: Xander’s $1 million.
Trask: Why would I have it?
Gwen: Can we just skip past this, trask, because I know that you are blackmailing xander in exchange for keeping my secret.
Trask: Oh, that million. Pretty juicy secret, if I remember correctly, lying about your miscarriage so you can blame your sister for the death of your baby.
Gwen: I’m not proud of it.
Trask: Nor should you be. No wonder xander was so willing to hand over all that money to protect you.
Gwen: I didn’t know that he was going to do that–if I’d have known, I would’ve stopped him from making that deal.
Trask: Oh, well.
Gwen: No, it’s not, “oh, well,” because I’m calling this off. I want his money back now.
Steve: All right, shane. I appreciate it. Give my best to kimberly, okay?
Kayla: Oh, oh, oh, oh, bye, shane–tell kimberly to come visit me sometime.
Steve: I guess you heard that. Okay, man, thanks.
Kayla: What were you two talking about?
Steve: Well, I thought maybe belle or marlena got mixed up and that john was actually on an isa mission, not a black patch case, so I called shane to find out.
Steve: He said that john hasn’t worked with them in months, which means we still have no idea where john is.
Demon marlena: Hello. I’m home. Oh, looks like you’ve missed me. I’m sorry I was gone so long, but I had a lot to accomplish. No rest for the wicked, you know.
John: What have you been up to?
Marlena: Well, don’t be so upset. I was just out uniting some salem citizens with some old friends like I’m about to do for you.
[Cat meows] She always did like you.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Trask: Sorry, ms. Rizczech, but a deal is a deal.
Gwen: You do not understand. That deal is no longer valid.
Trask: And why is that?
Gwen: Because I have decided to tell my father the truth about my miscarriage.
Kayla: So you’re still worried about john.
Steve: Like I said, baby, something is not right about all of this.
Kayla: You know, is it a possibility that maybe john really is working for the isa, and it’s so top secret that even shane can’t even tell you?
Steve: It’s possible, but my gut is saying shane is telling me the truth.
Kayla: Well, you said you talked to belle. I mean, what about marlena?
Steve: Not yet.
Kayla: Well, you need to go talk to her. Maybe marlena can shed some light on the situation.
Demon marlena: That is so sweet. You know, back in the middle ages, people thought that cats were my minions, that they would do the bidding of the devil. But people were so suspicious and afraid in those days. They were afraid that cats would steal their souls on my behalf.
John: So is that why he’s here–to steal my soul?
Demon marlena: No, cats can’t do that. No, you’re beginning to sound like you’re from the dark ages.
John: So why the hell is he here then?
Demon marlena: Well, i thought you might be lonely. I thought you’d like to see an old friend.
John: A friend?
Demon marlena: Don’t you recognize her?
Demon marlena: All right. How about this?
John: Susan? It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on
Chad: So your dad is writing off gwen for good?
Abigail: For now at least. I told him he might feel differently once he cooled down. But he’s done with her and her lies.
Chad: Well, I can’t say that I blame him or that a part of me isn’t relieved.
Abigail: She’s done a lot of damage to our family.
Chad: Yeah. Everyone’s gonna to be a lot better off without her in our lives.
Chad: What? You don’t agree?
Abigail: It’s just regardless of what she’s done, she’s still my dad’s daughter, and I feel really terrible that he’s losing her. I never intended to take her away from him.
Jack: You think I don’t care about my daughter?
Xander: Well, not enough to pull her out of her misery. Jack, think about it from her perspective. She just lost her baby and then she tried to do the decent thing by going over to break the news to chad in person.
Jack: Only she didn’T.
Xander: Because instead she was confronted by an understandably very angry abigail who unleashed a barrage of verbal abuse.
Jack: Abigail’s already taken responsibility for the fight at the top of the stairs. That hardly justifies gwen’s horrific lie.
Xander: You’re still not thinking about it from her– put yourself in gwen’s place. Just imagine how that must have been for her, back at the hospital, in pain, grieving the loss of her child, abigail’s cruel words still ringing in her ears– abigail, who has two beautiful children of her own and has always had the love of her father her whole life. Come on. Do you not understand how in that moment gwen might have wanted to take just a little bit of revenge? It was an impulsive decision to lie, one she has felt horrible about ever since.
Jack: And yet not horrible enough to tell me the truth.
Trask: You’re going to tell your father the truth– all of it?
Gwen: Yes. As soon as I leave here, I’m going to confess to my father about why I lied regarding the circumstances of my miscarriage.
Trask: Well, he hasn’t been in your life very long. Aren’t you afraid that once he knows, he’ll cut you out of his, hate you forever for what you did to his other daughter?
Gwen: Of course I am, but that is a risk that I must take.
Trask: Hmm. For xander and his money.
Gwen: Look, he has already done so much for me. I cannot ask him to make this kind of sacrifice.
Steve: Marlena is not returning my calls.
Kayla: Well, don’t take it personally–she hasn’t returned any of my calls either.
Steve: I know you were trying to get in touch with her about doug, right? It’s just downright cruel to keep julie away from him.
Kayla: You know, I agreed with her decision at first. I mean, we do need to make sure that doug is not a danger to julie or to himself. But now I just think it would be so good for him to be around his loved ones.
Steve: Do you have any idea why marlena has taken such a hard line on this?
Kayla: Honestly, I don’T. You know, before she had him committed, doug insisted that it was really marlena who attacked julie. But I can’t imagine that she would take that personally.
Steve: There’s definitely something off with her.
Kayla: That’s funny. That’s exactly what john said before he disappeared.
John: Susan. Susan, you all right?
John black, is that you?
Susan: [Stammering] Y-yeah?
John: You okay? You okay?
Susan: No, I–you’re not gonna believe this. I had a dream. I had this dream, and I was turned into a cute little kitty cat by… by the devil.
Demon marlena: Hello, susan.
Susan: You back away, satan. Back away, I say, in the name that is all good and all holy.
Demon marlena: Put your paws down. That won’t help you.
John: She’s right, susan.
Susan: Where are we?
Demon marlena: Look around. I think you can figure it out.
Susan: Andre dimera, stefan dimera, stefano dimera. Okay, well, why are we surrounded by all these dead dimeras?
Demon marlena: We are in the dimera crypt, you idiot.
Susan: You know what? That’s just so rude, even for lucifer.
Demon marlena: I should have left you as a cat.
Susan: Okay, you know what? You clearly made a mistake. You see, john black, and I, we don’t belong here. I mean, we are not dimeras, and we’re certainly not dead yet.
John: Susan, susan!
Susan: Okay, okay, come on. I’ll get you down, john black.
Demon marlena: You know why I can’t let you go.
Susan: I know you’re in there dr. Marlena evans. I know it. I just need you to listen to me. Your husband is in danger. Come on. Come on. Dr. Marlena evans, look. Look at this beautiful face. I mean, he’s in agony, and he needs you. Just let his love, lot his love guide you out of that darkness.
Demon marlena: No.
Susan: Yes! Yes. Dr. Marlena evans, please fight. Fight, fight, fight, fight for your love. Come here. Look, look, look. Look at the love in his eyes.
Demon marlena: No! Now stop it, you twit.
Trask: You do realize that that is already in my possession?
Trask: Then you understand that even if you told the truth, I have no real incentive to give it back.
Gwen: Please, I am trying to appeal to your sense of decency. Now I assume that you got into this job because you wanted to do the right thing, yes? That is what I am trying to do here.
Trask: I’ll admit it’s very noble but I still find it puzzling.
Gwen: Which part?
Trask: Your sudden decision to come clean. After all, you did go to great lengths to keep it secret.
Gwen: I already told you. I am doing this for xander, to get his money back.
Trask: And you’re willing to suffer the consequences that come along with telling the truth?
Gwen: Yes. It’s eating me up inside anyway. My father deserves to know the truth.
Trask: Indeed. So why are you lying right now?
Gwen: What do you mean?
Trask: [Scoffs] We both know that your sudden decision to do the right thing is all an act. Your secret has already been exposed.
Jack: I know gwen was in pain when she made up that lie, and maybe it was impulsive. But you know what wasn’t? The hundreds of times that I have seen her since. If she had come to me and told me the truth in the days or even the weeks that followed, maybe we could have worked something out. But she didn’t do that, did she?
Xander: She didn’t want to lose you, jack. Come on. Gwen grew up with nothing. Her new relationship with her dad meant everything to her.
Jack: Xander– this isn’t the first time that she’s lied to me. We have been down this road before, and there comes a point when forgiveness isn’t an option anymore.
Xander: So that’s it? Your daughter’s dead to you?
Jack: No. There will always be place for gwen in my heart, but I don’t think I can forgive her for this. Quite frankly, I can’t forgive you either.
Kayla: I found john in marlena’s office. He was looking for a recording of one of her therapy sessions.
Steve: That’s a violation, isn’t it?
Kayla: Of course it is, and I told him that, but he didn’t care. He believes that marlena wasn’t acting like herself and that it all started after the therapy session with doug.
Steve: The night that doug collapsed in her office.
Kayla: Yeah, and I’m sure that was very upsetting to marlena, but john thought it was something more than that.
Steve: What was he hoping to learn from that recording?
Kayla: I don’t really know. He just thinks that whatever transpired between marlena and doug had something to do with it, changed her.
Steve: I assume you tried to talk him out of it?
Kayla: Of course I did. But he went back anyway and listened.
Steve: Okay. Do you know what he heard?
Susan: Please, please, dear lord, bring dr. Marlena evans back to her husband and help her fight off satan so that she can save john black and me too. As your humble servant, I am begging you. I am begging you, please help her fight.
Demon marlena: No!
Susan: Lord god, hear my prayers please. Help dr. Marlena evans, help john black. They need you. They need you more than ever.
John: I know you can hear me, doc. Today is our wedding anniversary. You remember our wedding, our vows– in sickness and in health, till death do us part. Well, I’m going to make you a vow right now. With every last breath of my body, I’m not giving up, and neither should you. So fight, doc. You keep fighting, doc. You fight for us. You fight for our love! Fight!
Susan: Fight! Yes, fight, marlena, come on, fight, fight!
Demon marlena: No!
John: Marlena! Susan! Marlena!
Marlena: Oh, john.
John: Doc? Doc, sweetheart?
Marlena: Ohh… oh, my gosh.
John: Hey, baby.
Marlena: Oh, are you all right? Look what I’ve done to you.
John: No, no, no, no.
Marlena: I’m so sorry.
John: I’m okay. It wasn’t you, it wasn’t you. It wasn’t you.
Marlena: I’m gonna get you out of here. It’s all going to be okay. It’s all going to be okay.
[Susan’s neck cracks]
Demon susan: Hee hee hee. I wouldn’t count on that, marlena. Your mission:
Chad: Come here. You have absolutely nothing to feel sorry about. All you did was uncover the truth. So whatever happens to gwen from here is on her.
Abigail: But what if I cost my dad a chance at a relationship with his daughter?
Chad: Well, she didn’t care about your relationship with your father or me or our children. I mean, she let you blame yourself for her baby’s death.
Abigail: I mean, you blamed me too. I mean, I know you didn’t want to admit it, and that’s okay. But I could tell.
Chad: Look, and I’m ashamed of it, yes. I did resent you for playing a part in my child’s death, but I knew that you didn’t do it on purpose.
Chad: I’m sorry, okay, for everything. And I’m just…I’m grateful that we know the truth, and we can finally start to heal.
Xander: I don’t understand. What did I do?
Jack: You’ve been sticking up for gwen this whole time, covering for her. You must have known the real story, or are you telling me you also believed she was a sex worker?
Xander: I didn’t know, not at first.
Jack: Then you found out.
Xander: Gwen refused to tell me what snyder was holding over her, but then he made a slip. When I confronted her, she admitted the truth.
Jack: That she lied about the miscarriage.
Xander: She begged me not to tell you or anyone else, so…I kept my mouth shut.
Jack: In other words, you lied to me.
Xander: I did it for gwen.
Jack: And what about me? Don’t you think you owed it to your supposed best mate to tell him the truth?
Xander: Honestly, thought I was protecting you. I just didn’t want you to get hurt.
Jack: That sure worked out well, didn’t it?
Gwen: I don’t know what you’re talking about–my secret hasn’t been exposed.
Trask: Well, that’s funny. This morning I received a very lengthy text from your beloved xander.
Gwen: Xander texted you?
Trask: Oh, he sure did, and he explained how jack discovered the truth, so it wouldn’t be fair for me to keep the money. He didn’t mention that to you?
Gwen: No, he did not.
Trask: Coincidentally, he also tried to appeal to my sense of decency, but unlike you, he didn’t try to trick me.
Gwen: Well, you are trying to trick me now, aren’t you?
Trask: Am I?
Gwen: Yes! God, you could have told me that you knew the truth from the bloody start.
Trask: What, and miss this little performance of yours?
Gwen: [Huffs] You are an awful person.
Trask: And you’re a miserable piece of trash. For jack’s sake, I hope he has kicked your lying ass to the curb.
Kayla: You know I can’t break doctor-patient confidentiality. I mean, by all rights, I should have reported john.
Steve: Sweetness, I am not asking information relating to doug. I would just like to know if john told you anything that might give us a clue as to where he went.
Kayla: Well, this I can tell you–john was rattled by what he heard.
Steve: Did he say why?
Kayla: He just said that he could hear marlena talking on the recording, but not doug.
Steve: Well, maybe the recording device was too far away from him.
Kayla: No, every time doug was talking, there was just static.
Steve: Well, could have been a technical glitch.
Kayla: Well, maybe, but he also said what really disturbed him was that it seemed like marlena was talking to someone else in the room besides doug.
Steve: There was someone else in the room that night with them?
Kayla: That’s what he thought.
Steve: Well, who could it have been?
Demon susan: [Chuckling] Did you two really think that you could get rid of me that easily?
Marlena: You leave susan alone.
Susan: Oh, trust me. I don’t want to be in this body either. But you, ms. Marlena, gave me no choice since you managed to cast me out again. But luckily, susan’s connection to the spirit world…
[Chortling] Gave me easy access to her soul.
John: And I’ll keep on fighting you.
Susan: I know you will. Keeping you alive obviously was a bad choice. Your love continues to give marlena strength. But I’m going to do something about that.
Marlena: You stay away from him. Don’t you dare hurt him.
Susan: You can’t stop me!
John: Doc! Is struggling to manage your type 2 diabetes
Gwen: Look, ms. Trask.
Trask: So now it’s ms. Trask?
Gwen: Hey, look, I am sorry for trying to deceive you, but not everything that I said was untrue.
Trask: Oh? Which part was true?
Gwen: I truly am grateful to xander. I never wanted him to give up all that money just to protect me.
Trask: I’m sure you’re very disappointed that he can no longer afford to spoil you or take you on exotic vacations.
Gwen: I do not care about that! I care about him. Don’t you understand?
Your lawyer’s not here yet, but you can wait in there.
Kristen: Thank you.
Trask: Gwen, I really don’t have time for this. I need to get back to work.
Gwen: Please hear me out.
Hold on a sec. Someone’s in there.
Gwen: When my father found out the truth, yes, he did kick me to the curb, and now he wants absolutely nothing to do with me, and neither does anybody else in my family. Xander is all that I have left.
Trask: Sadly, xander cook isn’t much of a consolation prize.
Gwen: Actually, he is to me. He’s everything to me. God, if it weren’t for him, I would have completely fallen apart. He has been there for me like nobody else has. So please let me do this one thing for him in return. Give him back his money.
Trask: I’m sorry, ms. Rizczech, but I’m not willing to do that.
Xander: I really am sorry if I let you down, mate.
Jack: I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
Xander: What does that mean?
Jack: It means that this friendship has always been a one-way street.
Xander: That’s not true.
Jack: Isn’t it? You tell me you don’t only come to me when you need something. Best man, shoulder to cry on, place to live.
Xander: Friends help each other out.
Jack: What have I gotten in return? Pack of lies, an abused couch, an empty fridge.
Xander: Ay, maybe I have been a bad friend to you and an even worse housemate, but…I did what I did to protect your daughter when she had no one else to turn to.
Jack: Yeah, why? Why go to all that trouble? Why risk so much?
Xander: Because I care about her, I– I love her.
Jack: Well, then god help you both.
Steve: It doesn’t make sense. If someone had interrupted the session, wouldn’t marlena have mentioned it?
Kayla: You would think so.
Steve: Did john say anything else?
Kayla: The only thing he said was when marlena was talking to the third person, she sounded scared.
Steve: Scared in what way?
Kayla: I don’t know. I felt he was just about to tell me, and then we were interrupted by the news of abe being shot.
Steve: I assume marlena didn’t discuss this with you.
Kayla: No, I have not spoken to her.
Steve: This just doesn’t make sense. There’s one thing that’s bothering me about this. If john was so concerned about marlena, so concerned that he would break the law… why would he up and leave town to go on a case?
John: Don’t you hurt her!
Demon susan: Hmm…
[Chuckling] Why would I do that? You see, marlena and i are like this.
John: Not anymore. She’s finally free of you.
Susan: I’ll admit, I wasn’t expectin’ to be so rudely evicted from her body, but I’m not done yet with her.
John: What are you going to do?
Susan: What am I not going to do? You see, doc and I have so much more to accomplish together.
John: She’s going to keep on fighting you because our love is too strong, and we’re going to beat you to your knees like we did all those years ago.
Demon susan: [Chuckling] Then maybe it’s time to take you out of the equation.
John: Now you can kill me, but you’re never going to kill the love between doc and me or the spirit of that love.
Demon susan: Mm, you may have a point. I mean, love can be so persistent. Maybe killing you isn’t the answer, john, not when I can find a better way to break marlena’s spirit.
[Eerie, offkey notes]
Once upon a time there was a reindeer named tiptoe
Chad: I know that the truth coming out about gwen doesn’t magically fix all our problems. I know that we still have a lot of trust issues to work through, but, I mean, am I wrong to feel hopeful?
Abigail: No, I feel that way, too.
Chad: I’m really glad to hear you say that.
Abigail: We’re making progress. We’re sharing a bed again.
Chad: Well, as you said, we never had a problem there.
Abigail: No. And we’re building back that trust, just little by little, one step at a time. And I think knowing the truth about gwen’s lies is only going to make our road easier.
Chad: I hope so.
Abigail: I just feel like i woke up from a bad dream. I spent all those months just being attacked and made me really angry. I felt like I was someone else.
Chad: And now?
Abigail: I feel more like myself than I’ve felt in a really long time.
Chad: I can feel that, too. I mean, you, uh…when you smile your eyes light up.
Abigail: Really? Can you really see it?
Chad: Yeah. Used to be when I looked in there, it was… it was fog, dark clouds.
Abigail: And now?
Chad: All I see is beautiful blue skies, and I’m so thankful for that.
Trask: Ugh, what are you doing here?
Kristen: A meeting with my attorney. I put in a request to see brady.
Trask: Oh, I guess you haven’t heard.
Kristen: Heard what?
Trask: I bumped into your lawyer earlier. Turns out brady declined your request.
Kristen: Don’t believe you.
Trask: Well, you’re more than welcome to stay and confirm it. But if you’re counting on brady to come to your rescue, I’m afraid you’re out of luck.
Demon susan: All this time, marlena still hasn’t given herself over to me completely.
John: And she never will.
Demon susan: Never say never, john. You humans and your emotions, I mean, they’re so fragile. I mean, you mortals are so susceptible to passion and jealousy and insecurity and hate. Not even dr. Marlena evans is immune.
John: So now what are you talking about?
Demon susan: I’m talking about you, john, betraying your beloved doc in the worst possible way. Why give your family just ordinary eggs
Chad: We’re finally back on track.
Abigail: Thank you for not giving up on me.
Xander: Jack, you should be mad at me all you want, but please at least consider forgiving gwen.
Jack: I think it’s time for you to go.
Xander: All right. But just a little reminder– where would you be if your family hadn’t forgiven you, if they hadn’t given you a thousand second chances? But if you’re too judgmental to give one to your daughter, maybe gwen is better off without you.
You must be the lawyer. You have 30 minutes.
Gwen: Oh, no. I’m not–I’m– what’s going on here?
Kristen: You’re gwen rizczech right?
Kristen: My brother jake’s ex-girlfriend and the one who tricked my other brother, chad, into bed?
Gwen: [Sighs] Okay, listen.
Kristen: I’m kristen dimera.
Gwen: I know who you are. Why have they put you in here with me?
Kristen: Hmm. Let’s just call it a twist of fate. You have a minute to chat?
Gwen: God, what about?
Kristen: My future.
Gwen: Your future? Really, from what I’ve heard you don’t have a future. You’ve just got a one-way ticket right back to statesville.
Kristen: Mm, actually, I’m not going to go back to statesville. You’re going to bust me out of here.
Steve: I suppose john could have heard about this so-called case the night of abe’s shooting and had to leave town right away.
Kayla: But you don’t think that there really is a case?
Steve: No, I don’T.
Kayla: Where would john be?
Steve: I don’t know. But I have a feeling it’s connected to what he heard on the recording of doug’s session. Baby, I don’t suppose you could just let me listen to that?
Kayla: No, absolutely not.
Steve: Right. Okay. Well, I guess my only lead is to find out where john went after st. Luke’S. The only person who would know that…
Kayla: Is marlena.
Demon susan: What do you think, john? Breaking your wedding vows would be a surefire way to destroy your love with marlena.
John: I would never betray marlena for another woman, certainly not ms. Susan banks.
Demon susan: Ah. Well, I will admit it might not be hard to resist susan. But what about your old flame, kristen?
