Nicole: Oh. What are you doing here, at this time of night?
Ej: I come bearing sustenance in the hope that you won’t object to having company.
Kristen: I’m kristen dimera.
Gwen: Yeah, I know who you are. Why have they put you n here with me?
Kristen: Let’s just call it a twist of fate. If you have a minute, I’d love to chat.
Gwen: God, what about?
Kristen: My future.
Gwen: Your future? What future? As far as I know, you’ve got a one-way ticket back to statesville.
Kristen: Actually, I’m not going back to statesville. See, you’re gonna bust me out.
Gwen: Well, it seems the rumors are true.
Kristen: What rumors?
Gwen: You don’t even know me. If you think I’m going to lift a finger for you, you must be mad as a hatter.
Kristen: Right, but I know everything about your new boyfriend that I could write his memoir, and it would include a touching section on cynical old you finally falling deeply in love.
Gwen: What does xander have to do with any of this?
Kristen: Oh, gwen, he’s in the thick of it. He’s the reason you’re gonna get me a get-out-of-jail-free card. Unless, of course, you don’t mind losing him forever.
Demon susan: What do you think, john? Breaking your wedding vows would be a surefire way to destroy your love with marlena.
John: I wouldn’t do that. I would never betray marlena for another woman. Certainly not ms. Susan banks.
Demon susan: Huh. Well, I will admit it might not be hard to resist susan–
Evil kristen: But what about your old flame, kristen?
John: I’m seeing things.
Evil kristen: Still here.
Evil kristen: Of course it’s me, baby. Who else could lead you right into temptation?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
John: No, you’re just another one of lucifer’s tricks.
Evil kristen: Ouch. That kind of hurts my feelings.
John: He conjured up my son’s dead mother the last time he did this to marlena.
Evil kristen: Hmm. Right, but I’m not dead. I’m right here, standing in front of you. You can see me. You can hear me. You can even touch me.
John: I’m right here, doc.
Evil kristen: Well, hello there, sleepy head.
Nicole: You know, you really shouldn’t have gone to all the trouble, ’cause I already had dinner.
Ej: Not dining fashionably late anymore?
Nicole: And you should have called first.
Ej: And ruined my surprise?
Nicole: Ej, look, it’s been a long day, and I was just on my way to bed.
Ej: Ooh. Nice to know my timing is as impeccable as ever.
Nicole: Just so you know, I will be going to bed alone, so you can take your food, and just–
Ej: I actually brought something else. Chocolate cookies and cream, which is your favorite, if I recall. Surely, you have room for dessert. Mm-hmm.
Xander: I heard my best girl was back in town.
Maggie: Ah, and I heard that you got into a lot of trouble while I was gone.
Xander: Well, you came home just in time.
Maggie: Oh, didn’t I?
Xander: I really was so sorry to hear about your daughter’s passing.
Maggie: Yeah. I wish I’d had more time with summer. I never was a really good mother to her.
Xander: You were with her in the end.
Maggie: Yeah, well, she’s not suffering anymore.
Xander: Have you had any word from sarah?
Maggie: Not as much as I’d like, a text now and then.
Xander: And she sounds happy with rex?
Maggie: Yes, she does.
Xander: That’s good. No, I’m happy for her.
Xander: Why wouldn’t I be?
Maggie: Well, because she left you so abruptly, and you’re not exactly gracious with defeat.
Xander: I admit, a few months ago, if I’d heard about sarah being happy with someone else, that would have sent me on a month-long pub crawl.
Maggie: Hmm, so what’s changed?
Xander: I’m in love again.
Gwen: You’re up to your neck in trouble. I mean, what could you possibly do to make me lose xander? I swear, if you’ve done something to hurt him, I–
Kristen: Oh, relax, gwen. I’m not gonna hurt xander. Hired muscle’s hard to come by these days. As a matter of fact, I have some news that I think might make him ecstatically happy.
Gwen: What news could you have that could possibly make xander happy?
Kristen: The truth about sarah horton. On the outside, I looked fine.
Nicole: So let’s see here. You were fatally short, sort of, left for dead…
Nicole: Reincarnated, gone through an explosion, an invalid for a few years, and somehow, you still manage to remember my favorite ice cream.
Ej: It’s in the file of vital information that I keep in a safe place.
Nicole: But I told you that when we were married the first time.
Nicole: I know it’s hard to get used to not wearing your wedding ring.
Ej: I feel liberated. A reminder of what I rid myself of.
Nicole: Oh, nice try, ’cause I’ve had a front row seat of the never-ending love/hate tango of ej and sami.
Ej: That dance is over.
Nicole: Until she comes back to salem the next time.
Ej: It’s funny, isn’t it?
Ej: The two of us both moving on from disastrous marriages to the brady twins.
Nicole: Oh, yeah, right.
Ej: And wouldn’t it be something… if we both moved on from them together?
Maggie: You’re really in love with gwen ri–how do you say her last name?
Xander: Rizczech, and yeah. I am.
Maggie: I wish I could be happy for you, but after what she did to a really good person, like abigail and poor laura–
Xander: I’m telling you. Your sister-in-law’s death, it was an accident.
Maggie: What gwen did to abigail and chad was no accident. The same as jennifer and jack.
Xander: There’s a lot you don’t know. It came out while you were away.
Maggie: I know jack is gwen’s biological father.
Xander: And she grew up believing that jack turned his back on her, so he could be with jennifer. Of course, it wasn’t true. He had no idea she existed until she showed up here, but I promise you gwen no longer has it in for jack and his family. She’s put all of that behind her.
Maggie: I’m not as convinced of that as you seem to be.
Gwen: Well, it seems that you might be a bit behind on the local gossip. You see, xander knows what happened to sarah horton. She jumped into bed with her ex the day that she was supposed to marry him. Apparently, it was so good that she jilted xander, and then she left town, broke his poor heart.
Kristen: So are you acquainted with my reputation of mistress of disguise?
Gwen: My goodness, who isn’t? Your macabre transformations are stuff of legend.
Kristen: They are indeed, which is why you’ll believe me when I tell you that it wasn’t sarah horton that broke poor xander’s heart on that ill-fated wedding day.
Marlena: John. John, she’s not real. Tell me you know that.
Evil kristen: Oh, god. Please, god, make her shut up.
Marlena: Don’t believe her! Don’t believe her. Oh, darling, you’ve gotta fight. You have to fight.
John: Don’t worry, doc. The love we have is stronger than anything the prince of darkness can ever dream up.
Evil kristen: Do the two of you realize how nauseating you sound?
John: Yeah, I imagine a love like ours is pretty revolting to you because it’s abiding, it’s unconditional, and it’s true.
Evil kristen: Well, you and i used to have a very deep and true love.
John: I’ve never loved anyone like I love doc, so tell you what, why don’t you bust me out of these things, and let me go to her?
Evil kristen: I can’t do that; we have way too much catching up to do, and frankly, this reunion would be a lot better, if it wasn’t for this three-is-a-crowd situation that’s happening here.
John: What does that mean?
Evil kristen: You’re gonna have to say goodbye to your beloved doc for now. I’m waiting.
Why give your family just any eggs
Rafe: I hope you can forgive me.
Ava: For what?
Nicole: If you tell ava the truth, it will break her heart, and I can’t let you do that.
Rafe: I’m not gonna lie to her.
Nicole: I’m not asking you to.
Rafe: Okay, then what are you asking?
Nicole: I’m just asking you not to tell her or anyone else, and neither will I.
Rafe: Um, just being so hard on you just now, what happened with carmine, and thinking you were going back to the old ava vitali.
Ava: Come on, there is nothing to forgive you for. You know, my past makes it pretty hard for people to to believe me, and I did go after gabi.
Rafe: You did, and her company, which she built from nothing, and it means everything to her.
Ava: And you mean everything to me, but I promise you I won’t give her any more trouble.
Rafe: Okay, all right. Listen, I understand though. She is a lot, you know. Just the next time she drives you nuts, you come to me.
Ava: Yes, I’m sorry I didn’t do that before.
Rafe: Well, I have no business lecturing anybody.
Ava: I really have no idea why you were being so hard on yourself. Now, how about this? How about we just… we wipe the slate clean, and we just start fresh?
Rafe: That sounds good.
Ava: You want to know what else I’d like to do?
Ej: Why don’t we take this to the bedroom?
Nicole: Because holly and allie’s baby are down the hall.
Ej: You don’t know how quiet I can be.
Nicole: Since when?
Ej: Oh, you recall the intimate details. I’m flattered.
Ej: Hello. What just happened?
Nicole: I can’t do this.
Ej: Well, why not? We’re both single, consenting adults. Why shouldn’t we enjoy each other?
Nicole: Because I’ll feel like more of a slut than i already do, okay?
Gwen: So let me get this straight. You put on a sarah horton mask, and then you jumped into bed with her ex, and you just hoped that xander would find the two of you in bed together?
Kristen: And he did.
Gwen: Okay, and then you, still with this sarah mask on, broke it off with xander, and then you what? You left town with this rex person?
Kristen: No, I did not leave town; it was sarah, courtesy of a one-way ticket provided by me to a secluded island that was owned by my family.
Gwen: So who’s rex with?
Kristen: Nobody, silly. To him, it was just a fling with his ex. See, I arranged for him to get an offer from doctors without borders in a remote location where there’s almost no access to cell phones or emails. It was a prestigious appointment that even rex couldn’t turn down.
Gwen: So he went alone?
Kristen: Hmm. Keep up, will you? Yeah, and to make things easier for maggie, I text her periodically, from sarah, to make sure that she doesn’t worry about her precious daughter.
Gwen: So–hmm. So this sarah never actually threw xander over for rex?
Kristen: By jove, she’s got it. Yes, and if you don’t get me out of here, I’m just gonna tell xander where to find the real love of his life.
Evil kristen: Oh, there. That ought to hold you.
Marlena: What do you plan to do with john?
Evil kristen: Don’t you worry about him. I’ve got big plans for john black.
Marlena: You’re not even real. You’re not even kristen.
Evil kristen: What’s your point? Okay, so once john betrays his wedding vows to you, in the worst possible way, then, you see, your great love will no longer be strong enough to help you resist me.
Marlena: You’ve underestimated john. You always do.
Evil kristen: No, no, no, marlena. After all, kristen was able to get father eric to betray his vows, and his vows were to the almighty. John’s vows are just to you, so yeah, he’s gonna submit to his desires, and he’s gonna love every single second of it. It’s just too bad you’re not invited. It’s gonna be a fantastic show.
We do it every night.
Xander: Maggie, I’d just really like you to get to know gwen; you’ll see for yourself she’s not what she was.
Maggie: You’re asking a lot.
Xander: Come on, you were the first person in my life who believed that I could change, and because of you, I did.
Maggie: I wasn’t the first person to believe in you. It was sarah. You know, I’m never gonna get over her running off with rex. She was over rex. She was in love with you.
Xander: No, I think i understand it. She never really forgave me for what happened with her baby. Had to be that, and when she left town I was in such a bad place, maggie. And then I met gwen, and she was in a bad place, too, but the two of us together, we helped each other, made each other happy again. And now I can see that sarah and I are both–well, we’re both where we’re meant to be.
Gwen: You’re a bloody liar. I don’t believe a word of what you’re saying to me. You’re just playing a little game with me, aren’t you?
Kristen: Maybe. Or maybe I’m telling the truth. And if xander finds out that sarah never stopped loving him, he’ll end it with you so fast it’ll make your head swim.
Evil kristen: Alone, at last.
John: What’d you do with doc?
Evil kristen: Oh, haven’t we spoken enough about that headshrinker? Well, you used to love it when I ran my finger through your hair.
John: She’s not kristen. She’s not kristen. The real kristen is obsessed with brady. She’s the mother of his daughter.
Evil kristen: But I’m your kristen. I’m the kristen that you ached for when I was married to tony. I’m the kristen that you battled stefano for. I’m the one that helped save belle and stupid, insipid sami. Sold that poor baby into the black market. I mean who does that? Do you remember all those things? Hm?
Ej: Is it me? Does being with me me make you a slut? Or is it residual guilt about eric?
Nicole: We’re not having sex because I don’t want to.
Ej: And it couldn’t be because my divorce isn’t final. The nicole I know would relish the chance to stick it to samantha. And when was the last time you had sex anyway? That pathetic, drunken fling with xander cook? That was months ago–
Nicole: For your information, I had sex on halloween, okay?
Ej: I have competition. Really? I shouldn’t be indignant. We’re not exclusive, so if you’re worried about my male ego, you–
Nicole: I’m not–I could care less about your ego, all right? I’m just upset at myself for making love to a man who was with someone else. Someone I know, okay?
Ej: Why be so hard on yourself? These things happen.
Nicole: Oh, really?
Nicole: I don’t remember you being so “live and let live” when you found out sami cheated on you with lucas.
Nicole: Sorry. That wasn’t fair.
Ej: But I would like to point out that samantha and i were married. Xander and his partner are not.
Nicole: What does xander have to do with this?
Ej: It wasn’t him on halloween?
Nicole: No, no. I was with a good man, a man with principles, a man who thinks about other people and not just himself, okay? He is nothing like xander or you, for that matter. He hates your guts, by the way.
Ej: Oh, my god, oh. You slept with rafe.
Ava: Too much too soon. I came on too strong.
Rafe: No, no, no.
Ava: Yep, I did.
Ava: I did, yep. There has been a lot that’s gone on in the last two days, and maybe starting over means taking things slow.
Rafe: Yeah, maybe.
Ava: All right. Then you know what I’ll do? I’ll sleep in my room tonight, okay? You know, I’m sure you’re exhausted, and we could both use a really good night’s sleep. And we’ll catch our breaths and figure out where we want to go from here.
Rafe: Yeah, you know, that sounds like a plan.
Ava: Okay. I’ll see you in the morning, okay?
Rafe: Okay. Night.
Maggie: You know, I guess i should be a little more considerate about gwen. I mean, people, they do change.
Xander: And gwen has paid a really heavy price for what she did–I mean, jack’s all but turned his back on her.
Maggie: And don’t you think she deserved that after all the misery she caused abigail?
Xander: Well, that’s what gwen says, but I just… want to think there’s some hope. And you know, a good word from you about her, that would go such a long way with jack and the hortons.
Maggie: Oh, xander. I have loved abigail since the day she was born, and me talking up gwen to her family would feel like a betrayal to her. I mean, think about what sarah did to you. You know now how much a betrayal like that can hurt.
Marlena: John. John will never betray me, not as long as he knows that I’m still me, and I still love him. Oh. Fight. John, you’ve gotta fight. Please. Our love is so much stronger than anything that monster can throw at us.
Evil kristen: Do you remember when I first came to salem? You saved me.
John: Are you sure you’re okay?
Kristen: Yeah, I’m okay. This little mugging just capped off the perfect night.
John: No, I think this little mugging just about cost you your life, young lady.
Kristen: Well, I was a little scared, just for a minute there. Just that part where you jumped in, and that one kid pulled that switchblade.
John: Yeah, well, that’s over with now.
Evil kristen: You were my hero then. You could be my hero again. To be a thriver with metastatic breast cancer
Kristen: Oh, gwen, be smart. All you have to do is spring me out of this place, and you can have your happily ever after with xander.
Gwen: All I have to do? My god, do you know how many cops are out there because you’re in residence now? They’re on every bloody corner.
Kristen: Well, then you’ll have to be extra careful, won’t you, hm? Like you were when you slipped abigail those drugs that made her see pink elephants. I wouldn’t wait too long. It’s gonna be easier to get me out of this place than to get me out of statesville.
Maggie: You really think gwen is worth all this trouble?
Xander: Oh, I truly do.
Maggie: And you’re sure that she’s never gonna do anything else to hurt my family?
Maggie: Okay, then. I’ll talk to jack. I’m not making any promises.
Xander: Come here.
Xander: Just do it.
Maggie: Whoa! You put me down. You’re incorrigible. You really are.
Xander: Maggie kiriakis, I love you.
Maggie: Oh! Oh, my.
Nicole: Okay, time to go.
Ej: I’m sorry, okay? I just don’t understand. I thought you resolved to stay away from him.
Nicole: I had, but I was at the office working that night, and it’s really creepy being in the basic black building by myself, and on halloween, and I–oh, god. I thought I saw deimos kiriakis.
Nicole: I mean it. I thought I saw him.
Ej: He’s dead.
Nicole: And so are you, yet here you are with ice cream. Look, I called rafe, and he came over, and he calmed me down. And he was really sweet, and we had sex on the conference table.
Ej: Oh, my god, I own that–
Nicole: Okay, stop, don’t start, stop it.
Ej: I can’t believe this.
Nicole: Well, for your information, nothing has changed between rafe and me, okay? It was one time, and it’s never gonna happen again.
Evil kristen: Don’t you remember what it was like for us at the very beginning? Oh, we couldn’t keep our hands off of each other. Even your friend alice horton could see that we were falling in love with each other.
John: You saved me, too.
Evil kristen: Yes! Yes, you do remember. I saved you from the fire at the community center.
John: And afterwards, i tried to donate money to you, so you could rebuild the place.
Evil kristen: Yes. I didn’t want to accept it, but you wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. Can’t you see we were meant to be together?
John: I know what you’re trying to do, and it’s not gonna work here. The only woman that I want to be with is marlena. That’s never gonna change. Never, never gonna change. Never gonna change.
Evil kristen: Okay, but you know what? You did remember what we had. I can see it on your face, but I can be patient if I have to be. After all, I’ve been around for an eternity. And I do mean that literally. It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on
Ej: It’s all over with rafe? You’re sure?
Nicole: I’m sure. He’s with ava, and she is my friend. And she can’t know what happened, so you need to keep your trap shut.
Ej: I don’t even want to think about the ghastly details of your one-nighter with rafe, let alone talk about it.
Nicole: Thank you.
Ej: But I do have one condition.
Ej: The next time you’re terrorized by the undead on a pagan holiday, promise to call me first.
Xander: I have good news. Did you hear what I said, love?
Gwen: What’s your good news, darling?
Xander: Well, I just came from talking to the one person in this bloody town who can fix things between you and jack.
Gwen: Really, and who’s that?
Xander: Maggie horton kiriakis.
Gwen: Oh, dear, I wish you hadn’t have done that.
Xander: It’s a good thing. Maggie has some real sway in the horton family. If there’s anyone who can convince jack to make peace with you, it’s her.
Gwen: I don’t understand. Why would sarah horton’s mother want to lift a finger for me?
Xander: Because she has a soft spot for anyone who’s trying to change their ways, and I told her I believe in you. But soon, maggie, and jack, and all the rest of them, they’re all gonna see in you what I see.
Kristen: And if xander finds out that sarah that sarah never stopped loving him, he’ll end it with you so fast it’ll make your head spin.
Susan: What just happened to me?
Demon marlena: You had the privilege of being my temporary host.
Susan: Oh, oh, my god! You mean that satan was inside my body? Oh, beelzebub, I rebuke you, in the name of all that is holy and righteous!
Demon marlena: Shut up, you nitwit, before I decide that you are too much trouble to live.
Susan: Please, god, please. Please forgive me, I mean, I really did try to stop her. I did. I just–she’s just too strong.
Demon marlena: I just had a good idea. Why don’t I pay a visit to elvis junior?
Susan: No, no!
Demon marlena: Then stop the praying! Why don’t you two just relax? I’ve got a few things I’ve gotta do. Yeah, I’ve got to corrupt some more souls, destroy a few more lives, but I’ll be back so soon. And then, john and kristen can pick up where they left off.
