Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Jan: Talk about a merry christmas. And I owe it all to you. You got me out of that damn coma and gave me life again.
Demon marlena: What can i say, I’m just a giver. That’s as long as you do as I want.
Jan: Are you kidding? Mm, color in my cheeks, sparkle in my eyes. No one would ever guess that I’ve wasted six months of my life hooked up to machines. And no one will ever guess that I’m back, since you worked that voodoo you do so well.
Demon marlena: Jan–
Jan: I don’t know how you did it, and I don’t care. All I know is the joke is on everyone else. That twerpy little dr. Tripp is now chained to those machines, and I am free as a bird.
Demon marlena: Jan.
Demon marlena: You’re only going to be free if you do exactly as I’ve asked.
Jan: And I will do you proud, since we want the exact same thing.
Demon marlena: Okay. We’ve got a lot to do if we’re going to destroy shawn and belle’s marriage on their first–and last wedding anniversary.
Belle: Hey, handsome. Happy anniversary.
Shawn: Hey, happy anniversary yourself, gorgeous.
Shawn: I missed you last night.
Belle: How did things go at the safe house?
Shawn: Well, no sign of marlena, or I should say the devil. And ben and ciara and the baby are safe for now. I’ve got my best guys guarding the place. What about you, what are you doing here? Are you here for brady’s bail hearing?
Belle: Oh, no, good news, I don’t think there’s gonna be one.
Shawn: Wait, what happened?
Belle: Sounds like kate and victor decided to revoke the document certifying philip’s death, so without that and, you know, without a body, I think I can get the charges dropped.
Shawn: I mean, that’s great, but hold on, I thought that kate was out for brady’s blood.
Belle: Not anymore.
[“Away in a manger” plays]
Kate: Roman, I–I just don’t have the time–
Roman: Well, make time. Take a moment.
Kate: [Sighs] Wh–what?
Roman: Look, I know you’re grieving philip, and I respect your need for space, but kate, you shouldn’t be spending so much time alone, especially on christmas eve.
Kate: Okay, I–I understand, but I have–I really have to go.
Roman: Kate–and I need to say what the hell’s so important that you need to race up those stairs to get to it?
Kate: Why is this turning into an interrogation, roman?
Roman: Because I’m concerned, kate. Closing yourself off, bottling up your feelings like this, not good for you. And it’s not gonna bring back your son.
Kate: Okay, don’t talk about philip like he’s dead, because he’s alive.
Philip: You kidnapped sami? That’s crazy.
Lucas: This coming from a guy who faked his own death. I did what you said to do– “go after what you want. Reclaim the woman you love. Fight dirty if you have to.”
Philip: Ah, right, so it’s my fault you went off the rails?
Lucas: No, it’s not. It’s not, I just– I took your idea, and I ran with it.
Philip: But why? Why would you do something like that?
Lucas: I did it because I love sami. That’s why. I love her so much that there’s no way in hell I’m gonna let her go back to ej, not this time.
Sami: W–wait a second. Did you just say that you got married to a woman I just met for the first time a minute ago?
Paulina: For once in my life I’m totally speechless.
Ej: So that’s why you were so eager to fly off to italy on the company jet?
Johnny: It’s not like it was planned or anything. It just–it–
Chanel: It just happened. When johnny promised to cheer me up after I ruined your wedding, I had no idea I’d come back a married lady.
Johnny: We were walking by the san carlo of the four fountains, that– that little church you used to take me to when I was ten. And father bianchi’s still there.
Chanel: It was so beautiful and romantic.
Johnny: And all of a sudden, I was just down on a knee, proposing.
Chanel: And I said yes.
Johnny: Before we knew it, I mean, the padre was pronouncing us husband and wife. I–isn’t anyone gonna congratulate us or–
Ej: [Clears throat] Sorry, son. I, for one, think you’ve made a terrible mistake.
[Soft dramatic music]
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Johnny: Dad, I thought you like chanel.
Ej: Liking her and wanting her as my daughter-in-law are two entirely different matters. And I can’t ignore the fact that she recently, albeit briefly, was married to one of my clients, thinking he was very wealthy. Which leads me to believe that ms. Dupree is congratulating herself on getting it right this time, on landing a live one.
Chanel: What? No. That is so unfair.
Paulina: You damn right it is. Now, my daughter, she doesn’t need your family’s money.
Ej: One can never have too much, can one? But as you well know, son, i control the purse strings here.
Johnny: Mm. And what’s that supposed to mean, dad? You threatening to cut me off?
Ej: Not if you do the intelligent thing and get an annulment.
Lucas: You remember how ticked sami was when she found out that nicole gave ej the letter that kristen wrote. And they blamed me for breaking up her marriage.
Philip: Mm, that’s my bad, brother. I’m sorry I got into the middle of it. I thought giving that letter to nicole would help things. Instead, it made things worse.
Lucas: It doesn’t matter. It’s not the point. The point is it doesn’t matter how ej found the letter. What matters is–is sami tagged me as the bad guy when I yanked that letter out of the fireplace, not ej. Not the guy who treated her like crap all those years and kicked her out of the house. No, no, no. She still wants to be married to him. Idiot jerk.
Philip: I remember that conversation. You were pretty upset. That’s why I walked you home.
Lucas: Yeah, except I didn’t stay home. I went to gabi’s house, because I knew sami was gonna be there to ask gabi if she could move back into the dimera mansion. That was like a punch to the gut, man. I couldn’t do that. Sami and ej living under the same roof? I had to do something, man. I had to stop it.
Sami: I’m gonna get you back, ej. Whatever it takes. Gabi! Is anyone home?
Lucas: And after that, there was no turning back.
Shawn: Brady’s gonna be able to enjoy christmas without these charges hanging over his head.
Belle: Yeah. Great news.
Shawn: I feel like you don’t seem too thrilled about it.
Belle: Oh, I am. Of course I am. I–obviously, I–I’m just, uh– I don’t know, I’m having trouble getting into the christmas spirit with my mom being possessed by the devil.
Shawn: Yeah, yeah, um, about that, I, uh– well, I have news.
Belle: By the look on your face, it’s not good?
Shawn: No, no, it’s not. Look, your mom–or the devil morphed into steve. And he attacked kayla at the hospital last night.
Belle: Oh, my god. Is kayla okay?
Shawn: Yeah, yeah, she’s fine, but your mom stole her master key card.
Belle: Wh–doesn’t she already have one?
Shawn: No, no, but the codes were changed after snyder stole those drugs and jan woke up from a come and escaped to kill charlie dale.
Belle: Well, what would the devil want with a hospital key card?
Shawn: He might be using it in whatever plan that he has against us.
Belle: Against us? What do you mean?
Shawn: The devil doesn’t like that we’re in its way. He told kayla that he was gonna make us suffer a fate worse than death.
Belle: And somehow a hospital key card is part of that plan? I mean, what would the devil want in the hospital? Jan.
Shawn: That’s a theory. But when steve and kayla checked on her, she was still in her coma, so–
Belle: Okay, good. I hope she stays there forever. So where is my mom– or the devil?
Shawn: She’s still at large.
Belle: And we’re her next target.
Jan: So… what’s the plan? What? It’s been months. I deserve a little celebration.
Demon marlena: We can celebrate after the mission is accomplished.
Jan: I know how to do it. So we will make shawn and that bitch, belle, renew their wedding vows. We’ll knock her over the head, stash her body somewhere, and then I’ll put on her wedding dress and veil, just like I did last year, and reveal myself. Voil. Me again.
Demon marlena: The plan last year was an unmitigated disaster. Remember, you ended up in your second coma. Not to be confused with the last coma, your third coma, that I just had to get you out of.
Jan: So I don’t get to marry shawn?
Demon marlena: [Scoffs] Marriage is for suckers. No, you get to do the best part. You get to have sex with shawn.
Limu emu… & doug lila: Before I was diagnosed, there was nothing
Demon marlena: So when you get shawn into bed and you make love to him, he will have betrayed his sacred wedding vows to belle. The ultimate betrayal. And that will end them forever.
Jan: I love it. It’s perfect. But shawn hates me, so how are you gonna make him have sex with me? Mind control? ‘Cause I vote a big no on that one. I want him to do it out of his own free will, you know? I don’t want to force him.
Demon marlena: Really? You locked him up in a cage.
Jan: You really do know everything.
Demon marlena: That’s why you should believe me when I tell you that I can make things happen. For example… I could make shawn… see you, be wooed by you, throw you on the bed, and make mad, passionate love to you.
Belle: So the devil is after us now? Okay–oh, my god, shawn!
Shawn: Hey, I am sorry to frighten you. I just–I need you to know so you can keep your eyes open. I mean, trust me, if I had my way, I would take you home, I would lock you up, and lock you away from the world, including the devil.
Belle: Right. As if that’s gonna keep him out.
Shawn: Hey. Come here. Come here. We’re gonna get through this.
Belle: Okay. Yeah, we will. We will. Um, all right, I–I should go and get the charges dropped against brady, and then– you know what? Devil or no devil, we will celebrate our anniversary.
Shawn: I love you, belle.
Belle: I love you too, so much.
Shawn: Hey. I need you to be careful.
Belle: I know. I will be. You too, okay?
Shawn: I love you.
Belle: I love you.
Roman: So philip’s alive? They found him?
Kate: No. No, no. It’s nothing like that. It’s just that, uh– well, victor and I were talking, and we agreed that we made a mistake when we signed that document declaring philip dead, so we revoked it.
Roman: Well, I am glad to hear that, but what changed your mind?
Kate: I realized that wasn’t fair to brady, you know? Um, it was wrong and, uh, also it made me feel like I was giving up. And I’m not, because I really believe that philip is still out there, very much alive.
Roman: [Groans] Delivery.
Kate: [Scoffs] Go– go do that. I tell you what, how about we have a little christmas eve lunch later?
Roman: I’ll make sure the mistletoe’s by the table.
[Jazzy festive music plays]
Philip: You took sami all the way to wisconsin?
Lucas: I did. I did, but it wasn’t a great plan, okay? But I knew these two guys from prison. You know, when I did time back in the day when I– when I shot ej when I was trying to protect will? And these guys, they had this place. They had a cabin in the middle of nowhere. And I thought, this would be a great idea, right? I’ll pay them, and then they can just keep her prisoner for me.
Philip: For how long? What was the end game?
Lucas: Like I said, I didn’t have a great plan, I didn’t have an end game. Okay, and I thought about letting sami go, like, a million times. I did, man. But I knew for a fact, as soon as she came home, she’d go right back to ej like she always does.
Johnny: I’m not getting this marriage annulled.
Ej: You always did think with your heart. But this young lady understands commerce. Don’t you, dear? And you’re certainly no stranger to annulments.
Paulina: Excuse me. If anyone’s made a mistake here, it’s my little girl. You see, while your fool of a son is running around playing auteur and making little movies on his phone, my daughter, she started her own business from the ground up!
Chanel: Mama, stop! Look, you’re right. I’ve been a brat for a whole lot of my life. I was spoiled and entitled and I wanted to take the easy way out. And I made a lot of mistakes. But I’ve learned from them. I’ve learned what I want to do and who I want to be. And… I–I’m sure that allie has told you how well sweet bits is doing.
Sami: Yeah. I’m aware.
Johnny: Then show some respect.
Johnny: Oh, but no, you can’t do that, can you? And you sure as hell can’t just be happy for me. That’d be way too much to ask, wouldn’t it?
Sami: Johnny, it’s just that it’s so sudden–
Johnny: Not for us! Look, I know about chanel’s past, and about her mistakes, and she knows about mine, and it’s only made us closer. I have zero doubt that chanel married me for love, not money. And we are 100% committed to each other.
Paulina: Are you sure about that?
Paulina: Now, now, baby, you brought up allie’s name. Now I didn’T. I just want to make sure that you’re really ready to– to marry allie’s brother, when not too long ago, you– you were kissing allie.
Sami: Um, what did you just say?
Paulina: From the look on your face, I think you heard me.
Chanel: You–you know that allie and I were friends back in london. And we reconnected here in salem, and we got close. Really close. And we–we talked about it. We even talked about it with tripp and johnny. And we realized that we love each other as friends. And that’s it. Allie is in love and happy with tripp, and I am in love and happy with johnny.
Sami: So does allie know that you and johnny got married?
Chanel: I haven’t had the chance to tell her yet, but I–I know that she’ll be thrilled I’m married to the man I love. And I really hope that you could be happy for us too. It would mean everything if you would give us your blessing.
Sami: I’m so sorry, but I can’t do that either.
Lucas: And I didn’t know what to do. You know, because weeks started turning into months. And then the next thing I knew, ej was hooking up with nicole. And I thought ej was gonna move on with her, so I could let sami go. But before I could do that, sami stole one of my guys’ phones, and she called allie, and I happened to be with allie at the time. So I heard–I heard the– the fear and–and– and the desperation in sami’s voice, man, and I felt horrible about it. I did, but then I realized that I could actually save her, you know? I could rescue her.
Philip: Be the hero.
Lucas: That’s right, be the hero, and I was. Dude, I was. I knocked down the door, she gave me a huge hug. And then when I brought her home, she went right back to ej.
Philip: Ouch. I’m sorry, bro.
Lucas: You would think–you would think that sami finding ej in bed with nicole, you would think that would do it, right? You would think that would show her that the guy’s no good for her, but no. No, as of this morning, she’s– she’s fighting the divorce, she still wants to be with that idiot. And now, dude, I don’t know what to do.
Kate: What the hell? I thought I told you not to let anyone in.
Jan: I am totally down with the mad, passionate love part. But I still don’t get the how part.
Demon marlena: Okay. The first step is going to be that you text shawn.
Jan: Okay then.
[Breathes deeply] I’m getting goosebumps just typing in his number. Okay.
Shawn: Unknown caller. “Salem inn, room 514.”
Did you know some deodorants may not last all day?
Lucas: Uh, I am not “anyone.” I’m his brother, thank you.
Philip: I had to let him know I’m not dead.
Kate: Uh-huh. And I suppose you told him everything?
Philip: There are no secrets between us.
Kate: Oh, wonderful. Okay, so obviously, no one knows about this. And obviously, no one can know about it, which means you keep your mouth shut. Understood?
Lucas: Uh, yeah, I got it. Okay, I swear. I’m not gonna betray my brother’s confidence. Right, philip?
Philip: Yeah, of course. And I’d never betray yours, brother.
Johnny: What the hell, mom?
Johnny: I thought you, at least, would understand. Why are you so against chanel and me being married?
Sami: I have the same questions that paulina has. You know, I–I’m worried that maybe it’s a rebound thing.
Johnny: Unbelievable. Unbelievable.
Sami: I’m concerned. And–and obviously, chanel’s mom is too.
Paulina: Mm-hmm, about what kind of family that my daughter’s married into.
Sami: Right, well, the point is, paulina and i both would agree, I think, that you’re both very young. Right, and– and I don’t know, you’ve known each other a nanosecond. And then you come waltzing in here and announce that you’re married, and you expect everyone to cheer. Marriage isn’t a game, johnny, it’s real, and it’s for life.
Johnny: Right, right, like you and dad, you mean? I mean, now there is one hell of an example between the lying, the cheating, the fighting, the constantly blaming each other for everything that’s wrong in your relationship. I mean, with you guys as role models, it’s a miracle I even want to get married at all.
Jan: Oh! Shawn responded. Oh, my go– sorry, just so excited. I didn’t mean to offend you.
Demon marlena: You seem to have a gift.
Jan: He wants to know who it is. What do I do? How should I respond?
Demon marlena: Here.
Shawn: “Just come.” Promise you won’t regret it.”
Align. Fast acting biotic
Demon marlena: Ugh! Will you stop pacing?
Jan: He’s not answering. Why isn’t he answering? The first time, he responded right away.
Demon marlena: I didn’t ask him a question.
Jan: Damn it! Wh– what if he doesn’t come? Then what?
Demon marlena: He’ll come. A mysterious message demanding his presence. Shawn has the inquiring mind of a detective. He won’t be able to resist.
Jan: Are you sure he won’t take one look at me and arrest me on the spot?
Demon marlena: He won’T. I promise.
Shawn: It could be a trap. Or not. Guess there’s only one way to find out.
Philip: So… you talk to dad?
Kate: Yes, I did. I told you I was going to fix it, and I have.
Philip: He knows I framed brady?
Kate: [Sighs] He had to know everything, philip. That was the only way it was gonna work.
Philip: If it was possible for him to hate me even more than he did–
Kate: He doesn’t hate you. He loves you. He knows you’re just– you’re just not yourself right now, that you were under a lot of pressure, and you finally just–
Philip: Cracked up.
Kate: We’re going to get you the help that you need.
Lucas: What about brady? What happened to him?
Kate: Victor and I, uh, took care of that too. So look, no one, and I mean no one, can know that philip’s alive.
Lucas: Oh. It’s a text from rafe. He wants to see me at the station.
Kate: Lucas, if that’s about philip–
Lucas: I know, I know. I won’t say anything. Don’t worry about it, okay? Hey, um, I, uh– I guess this is goodbye for a while, so, uh, take care of yourself, okay?
Philip: You do the same, man.
[Soft dramatic music]
Ej: That was completely uncalled for.
Johnny: The truth hurts, doesn’t it?
Ej: Your mother and I–
Johnny: My–my–my mother and you what? Are you really gonna sit here and pretend like you guys just have–what? Normal ups and downs like a normal married couple? Like mom didn’t just cheat on you and you didn’t just throw her out of the house. Hey, how’s your divorce coming?
Sami: Johnny. We’re just–
Johnny: Concerned. No, yeah. I got it. I guess I should be thanking you guys. I mean, after watching your marriage over the years with your ups and downs, I know exactly what kind of marriage I don’t want to have.
Chanel: We–we did kind of–
Johnny: No, chanel, stop.
Chanel: Spring this on you.
Johnny: Stop making excuses for their bad behavior. Look, I was really hoping that you guys could be happy for us. But if you can’t, I’m cool with that too. And dad, if you want to show what a great and powerful man you are by cutting me off, go for it. Doesn’t matter, because chanel is my family now, and she’s all the family I need. So if you’ll excuse me, it’s christmas eve, and I would like to spend it with my wife.
Ej: [Chuckles] He’s defensive. Which means he understands, on some level, that he’s made a mistake. At least we’re all on the same page here.
Paulina: Oh, no. Whoa, no. I am not on the same page. I’m not even in the same book.
Ej: You couldn’t possibly approve of this marriage.
Paulina: Here’s what I approve of, mr. Dimera. And that is us letting our grown children find themselves without us trying to control them. And especially as flawed as all of us here are. And maybe, just maybe, having a distorted idea of what is a mistake and what isn’T. So I’m gonna trust my daughter, and I’m gonna let her and her new husband cool down, after which I will ask for their forgiveness for my rude questions and tell them that the answers are none of my business. Now look, you see, I’ve watched my baby girl, she’s grown into a strong and compassionate young woman, and I couldn’t be prouder. And I suggest–I suggest that you two, you do the same if you don’t want to lose your son.
Do I need to pretreat my
Lucas: Hey, belle.
Belle: Hey. Merry christmas.
Lucas: Ah, I hope so. Um, listen, uh, I just got a–a text from rafe, and he said that he wanted to talk to me. And it’s probably about philip.
Belle: Actually, no, it’s not. I just met with trask and rafe, and he wanted to talk to you about sami’s kidnapping.
Ej: I’m sorry johnny upset you.
Sami: He’s right, isn’t he? We fight and we lie and we cheat and we hurt each other. We’re not exactly a psa for living happily ever after. It’s just that he’s so excited. And so in love and… ej, I just don’t want him to get hurt, you know?
Ej: That’s why we need to shut this down before any real damage is done.
Sami: I know. It’s just– I think threatening–
[Sighs] To take the money away wasn’t the right way to do it, right? He just dug in his heels further.
Ej: Mm. Like when we threatened to take away his favorite toy when he was a child. But johnny’s a young man now. And he needs to learn some hard truths.
Sami: Yeah. Like… getting married, being crazy in love, and having these hopes and dreams and… thinking it’s forever… when we both know it’s not.
Chanel: You were really something down there. The way you stood up to your father, oh, you were fierce!
Johnny: Well, I didn’t like the way he was treating you. Or me.
Chanel: Yeah, it was pretty harsh.
Johnny: And now he wants to cut me off. Well, I don’t give a damn. Because there is nothing that he or my mom could say or do that would make me change the way that I feel about you. But I do have to ask.
Johnny: You think it might change how you feel?
Kate: So… that’s the plan. Are you okay with it?
Philip: I am.
Kate: Then I– I need to hear you just promise that you’re really going to commit to the treatment. To getting better. Okay? That means not contacting chloe or anyone else, just focusing– focusing on you.
Philip: I know I need help. Mom, I know. I’m not gonna screw it up.
Kate: Okay, good. So… let’s get you out of here then. Victor has the jet, and he has it all fueled up, and it’s on the runway, so– I love you. I love you so much.
Philip: I love you.
Philip: And thank you. And please tell dad–
[Sighs] Uh, just tell him I said thank you.
Kate: I will. I’m gonna go downstairs. I’m gonna distract roman so you can slip out of here, okay?
Philip: Mom. Merry christmas.
Kate: Merry christmas, baby.
Jan: Oh, my god, he’s here.
Demon marlena: How many times do I have to tell you not to say his name?
Jan: I’m sorry. It’s just that this is happening. What do I do?
Demon marlena: Well, you do what you normally do when somebody knocks on your door. You answer the door.
Lila: Before I was diagnosed, there was nothing
Roman: So you ready for our christmas eve lunch?
Kate: Yes, um, but first I want to apologize for being so edgy, because you have been so wonderful and supportive during this whole ordeal.
Roman: As supportive as you’ve let me be.
Kate: Mm. I appreciate it.
Roman: Well, I just hate to see you unhappy. So I’ll tell you what, why don’t we, uh, grab this cozy table here and, uh, have some lunch. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to get the mistletoe.
Kate: [Scoffs] We don’t need mistletoe.
[Country festive music playing]
Chanel: Nothing your parents say can change the way I feel about you. And between me and you, they seem a little crazy.
Chanel: Why would I ever listen to them? And, uh, since it is christmas eve…
Chanel: And we’re alone, I know exactly how we can celebrate.
Johnny: Mm–uh! Actually, hold that thought just really fast, sorry. Um, now that we’ve made our big announcement…
Johnny: What do you say we put these back on? May I?
[Soft romantic music]
Chanel: May I?
Johnny: Of course.
[Sighs] I love you, mrs. Dimera.
Chanel: And I love you, mr. Dimera.
Ej: I went into our marriage eyes wide open, samantha. There were no delusions about happily ever after.
Sami: All right, maybe I shouldn’t have tricked you into marrying me… that last time. And I probably shouldn’t have had you thrown in prison for what you did with abby. But you gutted me, ej, and I just wanted to gut you back. But only because I love you so damn much. I always have. And I always will. And I know you’re denying it now… but I know you feel the same way. You know, everyone keeps telling me… to just give up, that it’s hopeless. That our marriage is doomed. But you know me, ej, I don’t quit. And I am never giving up on this, on you. So go ahead. You have new divorce papers for me. Let’s have ’em. What are you doing? Come on, hand ’em over so I can just rip them up again.
Ej: You’re not going to do that.
Sami: Oh, you’re not gonna stop me.
Ej: Yes, I can.
Sami: [Scoffs] What are you doing? What’s wrong with you? Just give me the papers! Ej, what are you doing? Why are you doing this?
Ej: I don’t want a divorce, samantha. I want you.
Lucas: What about sami’s kidnapping?
Belle: Well, apparently, the wisconsin state police found one of the guys who was holding her.
Lucas: Is he– is the guy talking? Did he say anything? I mean, what’s–what’s going on? What’s the latest?
Belle: I–I don’t know. Rafe just said they’re transporting him here to salem as we speak, so hopefully we can find out who hired him and catch the son of a bitch who kidnapped my sister.
Shawn: Police. Open up.
Jan as belle: Happy anniversary, sweetheart.
