Johnny: You know what I’m starting to think? I’m starting to think this doesn’t even have anything to do with me. I think that you’re just jealous.

Tripp: What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Johnny: You know what it means. Your girlfriend here wants my wife all to herself.

Allie: What are you talking about?

Johnny: What do you think I’m talking about? You’re still in love with chanel, allie.

[Dramatic music]

Brady: Thank you for getting the charges dropped.

Belle: Well, don’t thank me. They shouldn’t have been filed in the first place.

Brady: Yeah. Well, they were, and I spent christmas in a jail cell. So thank you.

Belle: Well, then you should also thank chloe. She’s the one who got victor and kate to drop the declaration of philip’s death.

Brady: Yeah. It’s the first time, I think, chloe has ever been successful changing either one of their minds.

Belle: Yeah. And without that declaration, the da really didn’t have a case. Everything was circumstantial.

Brady: Yeah.

Belle: So you’re in the clear.

Brady: I’m in the clear. It’s all I wanted for christmas this year was to get out of jail. It’s a little christmas miracle I guess.

Belle: Let’s hope for another one.

[Phone ringing]

Brady: Marlena?

Belle: Yeah. Now that she’s been caught, dad is gonna try an exorcism.

Brady: And you’ve had all this on your mind, and yet you’re still down here for my sake. Come here. I’m sorry, belle. I’m sorry.

Belle: Well, at least here I can do something.

Brady: Yeah.

Belle: I’m really scared, brady.

John: Oh, thank god you’re here, kid. Please come in.

Eric: As soon as we hung up last night, I booked my flight. How’s mom?

John: I honestly don’t know. ‘Cause we’re not dealing with your mom, we’re dealing– we’re dealing with “it.”

Eric: Are you alone?

John: Lucas and sami are here. They’re in there with her now. Hopefully… holding the devil at bay.

Sami: What is my mom talking about? Have you been lying to me?

Lucas: It’s not your mom, it’s the devil, and he’s trying to stir up trouble.

Demon marlena: Yeah. Well, that’s true ’cause that’s what I do. But the truth is you are keeping a secret from her, and we both know it. For starters, I ow what you did. See, people think of you as the boring one, but I know what a little bad boy you are.

Lucas: Yeah, I’m so boring that your mind games won’t work on me.

Demon marlena: Really? You see, I know that you’re the one that kidnapped sami and held her captive. That’s not very boring. So she’s going to find out one way or the other. Do you want to tell her? Or should I tell her?

[Chilling music]

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]

Allie: That is ridiculous.

Johnny: Is it?

Allie: Yes, okay? I am in love with tripp.

Johnny: Then why are you so against me marrying chanel?

Allie: Because I know you, and I know your history. She’s my best friend. I don’t want to see her get hurt.

Chanel: Except I’m not your best friend anymore.

Allie: What?

Chanel: I’m your sister-in-law. And I was really hoping that you would be happy for me. For us. Do you think you can do that?

[Dramatic music]

Sami: Lucas, just tell me. It can’t be that bad.

Demon marlena: I wouldn’t count on that.

Sami: You shut your mouth, or you’re going to get a face full of holy water.

Demon marlena: Ungrateful sow!

Sami: [Sighs] Lucas, please. Just tell me whatever it is.

Lucas: You want the truth? The–the truth is– is that I’ve been lying to you.

Demon marlena: Good start. Come on, now. The truth will set you free.

Sami: Ignore her.

Lucas: I’ve been lying to you– I’ve been lying to you about my feelings for you. You see, I– I love you so much.

Sami: Yeah. Of course you do.

Demon marlena: “Of course you do”?

[Laughs] What hubris!

Sami: Lucas, you’re not lying about that. You and I have talked about it. I know.

Lucas: Sami, there’s something more. There’s something you don’t know.

Demon marlena: Here we go.

[Tense music]

Eric: I’m so sorry you’re having to go through this for a second time.

John: Ah, don’t worry about me. We just have to focus on casting this demon out so we can get your mother back to us.

Eric: Is there any luck so far?

John: I’ve read scripture on casting out the devil, but he has such a strong hold on her. And he doesn’t– he doesn’t fight fair. He doesn’t come right at you. He surrounds you.

Eric: John, you must be exhausted.

John: I can’t afford to be, eric. I just needed to take a moment here just to try to recharge a little bit.

Eric: Well, you have backup now. And I happen to be well-suited for the job.

[Dramatic music]

Look at this guy.

Allie: I wish I could be happy for you, chanel, but you’ve made this mistake before–xander?

Johnny: You’re comparing me to xander now?

Allie: Well, there are some very striking resemblances.

Tripp: Allie–

Chanel: Okay, horton, listen to me. Johnny and I are in love. He’s been there for me like no guy ever has, and we are in this for the long haul.

Allie: Dupree, I’m sorry, but you’re wrong, okay? He’s gonna break your heart sooner or later. It’s just a matter of time.

[Dramatic music]

Kayla: I still can’t believe that tripp was the one that was in that hospital bed and not jan. I mean, thank god he’s all right.

Steve: Thank god. Well, shawn is taking jan back to statesville where she belongs. So things are looking up.

Kayla: Well, not quite. We still have to get the devil out of marlena.

Steve: John said he’s gonna try an exorcism today.

Kayla: Is there anything we can do to help?

Steve: I guess all we can do is pray and have faith that john and family can get marlena back.

[Dramatic music]

John: You know, when you told me last night you went back to the priesthood, it just– it just seemed to me that god must’ve had a hand in this, that he was giving us just what we need to get your mother back just when we need it.

Eric: I agree. It was god’s will.

John: So why now?

Eric: Well, when everything was blowing up with nicole, there was something– something she said that really hit home. She said when I decided to take the collar off a few years ago, it never really changed who I was. So when I went back to the congo, I inquired to the church. I just didn’t want to say anything till it was a done deal.

John: Well, your timing couldn’t be better because you have the strongest faith of any man I’ve ever known. And, by god, son, you’re gonna need it.

Lucas: What you don’t know is how much I love you.

Demon marlena: How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky?

[Sizzling] Ow! Oh, you little brat!

Sami: Okay. Lucas, you have to do this faster, okay? What? What is it?

Lucas: Listen, I love you so much. I love you so much that I would do anything– I would do anything for us to get back together.

Demon marlena: Oh. Look what the cat dragged in.

Eric: Sami.

Sami: You’re a priest again?

Eric: Yeah. Maybe you heard nicole and I broke up.

Sami: You–eric, I’m so sorry.

Eric: Not now. We have more important things to do. It is written that, “you should not put the lord, our god, to the test.”

Demon marlena: And are you my lord? Are you my god?

Eric: Let’s just say I work for him.

Demon marlena: You know, I’m kind of surprised. I mean, I thought you were busy sharing your wondrous gifts with strangers in a strange land and to hell with your own family.

Eric: Actually, it’s going to be to hell with you.

Demon marlena: Cozy as it is down there, my work here is not finished yet.

Eric: You’re finished. My mother is coming back to us.

Demon marlena: I’m afraid it’s too late for that.

Eric: You’re afraid I’m right. You’re outflanked. She’s not given up. She’s in there, but she is fighting you with all she’s got. My boss and I are going to make damn sure she wins.

How did olay top expensive creams?

Johnny: You know, I am sick and tired of you constantly trashing me. I’m your twin. You’re supposed to be on my side no matter what.

Allie: Okay. Well, I’m sorry that us sharing a womb for nine months doesn’t give you a free pass, johnny!

Johnny: You’re as bad as mom.

Allie: Oh, you’re as bad as your dad, which is really, really bad.

Chanel: Johnny, let’s go. Let’s just go.

Allie: Chanel, it’s not you that I’m mad at.

Chanel: This is christmas morning, and this isn’t very merry. Come on, johnny.

Johnny: Chanel is my wife, and that’s not gonna change.

[Emotional music]

Allie: God. My brother is such a jerk.

Tripp: Maybe. Was he right?

Allie: About what?

Tripp: Are you in love with chanel?

Eric: I think it’s best if I do this alone.

Demon marlena: Yeah, right. Right. Those two aren’t exactly the god squad, are they?

Lucas: Come on, let’s go.

Demon marlena: Hey, lucas, remember–remember that a relationship built on lies is just like a house of cards. Remember I–

Sami: Get our mom back for us.

Eric: I’m gonna try my best. I think you should go too.

John: You’re sure that I can’t help?

Eric: You can pray. For now, I need to do this alone.

John: God help you, eric.

Eric: He will.

[Eerie music]

Demon marlena: You’re gonna do this alone, huh? Isn’t that a little arrogant?

Eric: I’m not doing this alone. “The lord god is in our midst. And he is mighty to save.”

Demon marlena: You arrogant little man. You really think all that’s gonna help you? Let me warn you, if you try to challenge my power, you will die.

[Chilling music]

Sami: I hope eric knows what he’s doing, what he’s up against.

John: Well, I’m praying that he’ll be all right. If he needs our help, he’ll let us know.

Belle: Look who I found!

John: Oh!

Sami: Brady!

John: Hey, kid.

Brady: Hey.

John: You’re out? You’re free?

Brady: I’m out. All the charges are dropped. So–

John: Nice.

Brady: Lucas, um, look, I don’t–I don’t know what happened, but I didn’t do anything to hurt philip, I swear to you.

Lucas: I believe you. I believe you.

Brady: Thank you ’cause it’s the truth. How’s marlena?

John: Eric’s here. He’s with her right now.

Brady: He’s alone?

John: Well, there’s–there’s something you don’t know. Eric went back to the priesthood. So, no, he’s– he’s not facing her alone.

[Dramatic music]

Eric: In the name of the father, and of the son, and the holy spirit, amen.

[Chilling music]

Demon marlena: Tell me something, handsome, is that a halloween costume? I thought they defrocked you years ago.

Eric: I’ve been reinstated.

Demon marlena: Oh. Well, I guess it’s all right for the church to forgive you, but what about all of those poor parishioners who had to sit through that video of you fornicating with that ridiculous foul woman? What’s her name? Oh, yeah, kristen.

Eric: For something to be a mortal sin, it needs to be committed with knowledge and full awareness. Kristen had drugged me.

Demon marlena: Oh, I get it. So if you had been drugged, that lets you off the hook, huh?

Eric: Even then, the cardinal gave me permission to return to the priesthood. I turned him down because I felt that I had lost my calling.

Demon marlena: Hmm. Now you’ve found it again?

Eric: That’s right.

Demon marlena: Well, that’s funny. Because based on that video, I would have thought that your true calling was the adult entertainment business.

Eric: You can throw that video in my face all you want. I’ve put it behind me.

Demon marlena: Oh, have you?

Eric: Yes.

Evil kristen: What do you say, father?

[Dramatic music]

You wanna make a sequel?

Only daisy cottage cheese will do

Steve: Ho, ho, ho!

Kayla: [Laughs]

> Steve: Patchy claus

patchy claus

patchy claus is here

Kayla: Jolly as ever. Wait a second. Wait a second. Wait a second. I want to take a picture.

Steve: Whoa, wait a minute.

Kayla: Okay, smile. Smile.

Steve: You’re not going to use that to blackmail me, are you?

Kayla: Don’t be silly! I’m gonna send it to stephanie and joey and show them what they’re missing.

Steve: Oh, man. I sure do miss them.

Kayla: I know. Me too. It was so nice having joey here last year, wasn’t it?

Steve: Sure was. Well, it’s too bad he’s stuck in seattle with stephanie, but at least they’re together.

Kayla: True. And this party, I mean, I can’t even count how many years we’ve been doing it.

Steve: Mm.

Kayla: All the memories.

Steve: Mm-hmm.

Kayla: It really makes me think about the people who can’t be here.

Steve: I know. But, hey, the whole point of this thing has always been to try to brighten up christmas for the little ones who can’t get home.

Kayla: Right. It’s great to be here for the kids. Okay. Okay, patchy claus, merry christmas.

Steve: Merry christmas.

Kayla: I don’t know if there’s a way–

Steve: Come on, let’s try. I want a kiss. Santa wants a kiss.


Allie: How many times do I have to say it? I am not in love with chanel, okay? She’s just my best friend. I wanna see her happy.

Tripp: Come on, allie, you have to admit that your reaction was a little more emphatic than that.

Allie: Okay. Well, it was “emphatic” because–because I know it’s not going to work out with chanel and my brother, and that worries me, obviously. But tripp, don’t you know by now? You’re the one that I love. Okay? Please tell me that you believe that.

Belle: Eric went back to the priesthood?

Brady: That wasn’t long. I mean, he just got his divorce finalized a little while ago.

Belle: Did he say why he did that?

Sami: If anyone could make a man swear off women, it’d be nicole.

John: I think it was more a matter of faith.

Belle: Well, whatever the reason, it’s really good for mom. Is he doing the exorcism?

John: He just started, yeah.

Brady: Dad, I don’t know. Priest or no priest, I don’t think he should be in there alone fighting the devil.

[Dramatic music]

Eric: How did you–

Evil kristen: Father, you of all people must know that the devil can take many forms.

Eric: No. You’re just an illusion.

Evil kristen: I don’t think so.

Eric: You’re just–

Evil kristen: I’m a lot more real than you think. Why don’t you come a little closer and see for yourself?

Eric: I’m not interested.

Evil kristen: You were hesitant the first time too. But eventually, you came around.

Eric: No. I was drugged.

Evil kristen: So maybe that’s why things are a little hazy. Perhaps this will jog your memory.

[Bright tone]

[Dramatic music]

Eric: I wasn’t myself.

Evil kristen: I think that you were the real you, without all of your priestly inhibitions.

Eric: No.

Evil kristen: Just give in, eric. No one will ever know.

Brady: Eric, don’t listen to her. It’s just another one of the devil’s tricks.

Find your rhythm.

Evil kristen: Oh, brady, you don’t have to be jealous. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for you. You want me to prove it?

Brady: That’s a hard pass.

Evil kristen: You’re so silly. You never could resist me.

Eric: You can try to lead us into temptation, but it’ll never work. You’re just wasting your time.

Brady: Hey, let’s go.

Eric: Thank you for bringing me back to reality. I was–I was starting to fall.

Brady: Hey, I got your back.

Demon marlena: You two are such a drag.

[Scoffs] You’re no match for me, you fallen priest and the boozy brother. You won’t win.

Eric: You’re right. He’s absolutely right.

Brady: Eric, what are you talking about? We’re not giving up on this.

Eric: No, no, we’re not giving up. We’re just gonna take a whole new approach to this.

Sami: So you found shawn in bed with jan spears?

Belle: Well, the devil made her look exactly like me.

Sami: Right. We should have used that excuse with ej.

Belle: It’s not funny, sami.

Sami: No, sorry. I’m just–

Belle: Jan wouldn’t even be back in our lives if it wasn’t for you. I mean, you broke her out of shady pines while she was still dangerously nuts.

Sami: Okay, if you wanna blame someone, blame nicole. She’s the one who was trying to steal my grandchild away from me.

John: You stop it.

Belle: Of course. Right.

John: Stop–no, no, no, we’re not going to have a house divided here.

Sami: Okay–

John: We’re fighting satan, not ourselves. We have to maintain a united front here. Take your sister’s hand.

Eric: John’s right. None of us are strong enough to beat the devil. We need to set aside our differences. We need to work together as a family. It’s the only hope we have of saving mom’s soul.

[Dramatic music]

Allie: You believe I love you, don’t you?

Tripp: I do. And I love you, too, allie.

Allie: I know. Or else you’d never agree to wear matching bracelets.

Tripp: That’s right.

[Phone rings]

Allie: Oh, it’s grandpa john. Hi, grandpa john, any news on grandma?

Demon marlena: Oh, marlena. Looks like your loved ones are circling the wagons. And the fight for your soul is about to begin.

[Chilling music]

And I am going to win it. Forever. Such tree-mendous views.

Steve: Come on, sit on patchy claus’s lap.

Kayla: You’re not gonna give up until I do it, are you?

Steve: Nope.

Kayla: And it doesn’t matter to you that I find it terribly embarrassing for me, chief of staff of this hospital, to sit on santa’s lap in front of all my colleagues?

Steve: Oh, no, I don’t care. And besides… I have something for you.

Kayla: You do?

Steve: Here. Here.

Kayla: Aww.

Steve: Open it up.

Kayla: Aww, steve, it’s beautiful.

Steve: You know, my number one elf, tripp, told me that bracelets are the trending christmas gift this year, and I thought it would go nice with the necklace that I gave you on our honeymoon.

[Sentimental music]

All these years later, you’re still my anchor.

Kayla: Thank you. I love it. And I love you.

Steve: You know what?

Kayla: Mm?

Steve: Now you’re kissing santa in front of all your colleagues.

Kayla: I don’t care.

Steve: That’s the christmas spirit.

Tripp: Hey.

Chanel: Oh. Hey, henry, merry christmas. Hey, tripp.

Tripp: Hey. Look, I’m–I wanted to say I’m sorry about before and I just hope that you and I can still be friends.

Chanel: Yeah. Me, too. We’ll just keep it neutral like switzerland.

Tripp: Right. Well, did johnny get a call from his grandfather? Allie did.

Chanel: Yeah. I hope dr. Evans is gonna be okay.

Tripp: Yeah. Same here. Well, I was about to take henry to the hospital.

Chanel: Oh, what’s wrong?

Tripp: Oh, nothing, nothing. Every christmas the hospital throws a party for the kids that can’t go home. And since johnny is otherwise engaged, you want to come with us?

Chanel: Sure. I’d love to.

Tripp: All right. My dad is actually dressed up as santa claus, so it adds a little bit to the fun, right?

Chanel: Definitely. And I’m sure he’ll pull it off great.

Johnny: Looks like we both got the same call.

Allie: Look, about before–

Johnny: Look, look, it’s– today’s about grandma, okay? Everything else can wait.

[Knocking on door]

Sami: Oh, hey!

Allie: Hi. Hi.

Sami: I’m so glad to see you! Oh, look at you. You’re both here. Oh, I’m so glad that we could be together. I wish it was under different circumstances. Johnny, would you go on in? I want to talk to allie for a second.

Johnny: Sure.

Sami: Hey, um, I know this isn’t the right time for this conversation, but, well, chanel’s mother told me something that I wanted to talk to you– I wanted to verify with you.

Allie: You’re right, mom. This is not the time. Not the time at all.

Sami: Oh. Right. No, of course. Let’s go in.

Allie: Uncle eric? I didn’t know you were back.

Eric: Yeah. Well, it’s–I’ll explain later. But right now, we need to focus on saving your grandmother.

Lucas: You know what? I think I’m gonna go. This is definitely a family situation. I’ll be praying for everybody. Call me later, okay? See you soon.

Sami: Thank you, lucas. Johnny, listen, I know things didn’t end well–

Johnny: Look, like i told allie, today’s about grandma.

Sami: Thank you.

Johnny: So what are we doing?

Eric: An exorcism. I want you to all know upfront that this is gonna be very emotionally and physically exhausting… and very dangerous. If there’s anybody who doesn’t want to be a part of this, please, let me know now. There’s nothing wrong with saying no.

Allie: On the way over here, I was just thinking about everything she’s done for us. I’m not leaving.

Johnny: If she can take it, so can I.

Eric: I think it’s a good sign that we’re doing this on christmas day, the day that god sent down his only begotten son to save us. And I know that allie is not alone when she’s thinking of all the good things that mom has done for us. So now it’s time for us all to come together in her hour of need.

[Dramatic music]

Demon marlena: Well, well, well, the gang’s all here. Even the grandchildren. I suspect johnny is here to do some research for his movie.

Johnny: I’m here for my grandmother.

John: Johnny, don’t engage her.

Eric: Let’s begin.

Sami: [Mouthing words]

[Mouthing words]

Eric: Let’s join hands as we say the lord’s prayer.

All: Our father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread…

[Eerie tone] And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen!

Demon marlena: You can pray all you like, but nothing is going to bring back your precious marlena. She’s mine! She’s mine for eternity!


[Laughing deepens]

[Chilling music]

Limu emu… & doug

Eric: May the blessings of our almighty god, the father, the son, and the holy spirit, come upon you and remain with you forever!

Demon marlena: [Screaming]

[Chilling music]

Sami: [Pants]

Demon marlena: [Cackling] Is that all you’ve got?

Belle: Oh my god, this is so much worse than I thought it was gonna be.

Demon marlena: Oh, belle, were you about to throw in the towel? I figured you’d be the first to fold. And, remember, you were the first to give up on your mother when she was in a coma. How’s your marriage? How many times have you betrayed your husband? You’re nothing but a cheap slut!

Sami: Don’t talk to her like that!

Demon marlena: Oh, my, it’s the professional slut defending the junior slut.

Eric: Don’t engage! Everyone, focus! Talk to her–talk to marlena. Speak to her. Pray to god that she will hear you.

Kayla: “Then, all at once, in the night sky, a vast number of glorious angels appeared– the very armies of heaven. And they all praised god, singing, ‘glory to god in the highest realms of heaven. For there is peace and good hope given to the songs of men.'” Yeah.

[Gentle music]

Lucas: God, please forgive me for what I did to sami. Please watch over her today. Watch over her today and watch over her and the rest of marlena’s family.

Demon marlena: Ahh!

All: Pray for us sinners…

Demon marlena: Ahh!

All: Mary, mother of god…

Demon marlena: Ahh!

All: Now and at the hour of our death, amen.

Demon marlena: Ahh!

Eric: The beast is getting weaker.

Demon marlena: Your united front is getting weaker. Your family is a sham. You’re always at war with yourself.

John: But we always pull together when it counts. And what counts most right now is all of our love for marlena!

Eric: Depart, transgressor! Depart!

John: This is it, doc. It’s now or never.

Eric: Depart, seducer, full of lies.

John: We need you to fight! We need you to come back to us!

Demon marlena: It’s too late!

Eric: The foe of virtue, persecutor of the innocent…

John: Look around you! Look into the faces of all of your family members! Remember how much you love them! Remember how much they love you!

Demon marlena: No!

John: Yes!

Eric: Give way, you monster. Give way to christ! For he has already stripped you of your powers, laid waste your kingdom, bound your prisoner, and plundered your weapons…

John: Oh lord, please remind marlena what is at stake!

Eric: He has cast you forth to the outer darkness!

John: Please remind her that we need her! Remind her that we love her!

[Emotional music]

Sami: I love you so much.

Marlena: I love you.

And I will delight in you… all the days of our lives.

Demon marlena: No! No!

John: Doc? Doc?

Marlena: John?

John: Doc, is it really you, honey?

Marlena: It’s me. It’s me.

[Cries softly] You saved me.

[Gentle music]

You all–you all saved me.

John: Thank you, god. Thank you, god.

All: [Laughing]

[Gentle music]
