Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Nicole: Oh, this should have never have happened to you, old buddy.
[Sighs] Thanks for always being there when I needed you.
[Knocking on door] Ugh, what are you doing here?
Ej: I thought we needed to talk.
Nicole: Well, now’s not a good time. I’m mourning the death of a friend.
Ej: I thought I tossed him months ago.
Nicole: You did, and you know what? As it turns out, the one who should have been tossed is you.
Ava: Let me get this straight. Somebody cut the head off of that bear that you and nicole passed back and forth, and… you think it was me?
Rafe: Was it?
[Scissors snap] Why would I do a thing like that to something that means so much to you and nicole?
Rex: Oh, sorry about…that.
Xander: There’s no harm done. Actually, matter of fact, can I buy you a beer?
Gwen: You’re working on a story about sarah horton?
Abigail: I just decided. Yeah, aunt maggie hasn’t been able to reach sarah, and she’s starting to think that something might really be wrong, because her phone is no longer in service.
Jennifer: Okay, so that is why xander stopped by steve and kayla’s when we were there.
Jack: Steve had just agreed to take another case, so i assume he’s not gonna be able to help find sarah.
Abigail: Well, then I guess it’s up to me to find her.
Gwen: What? Why on earth would you do that?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Kate: Well, I’ve seen power change hands here once or twice. I’d advise you not to be too cocky.
Chad: Wait, ej was the one that was cocky. No, I’m not gonna feel guilty for enjoying his downfall. He brought it on himself.
Kate: So, you think that he arranged for sami’s kidnapping?
Chad: Well, I mean, it sure looks that way based on the evidence.
Kate: Yeah, the evidence you found in the company ledgers and promptly brought to shin?
Chad: And I would’ve been negligent if I hadn’T. Ej was using company funds to pay for a personal vendetta.
Kate: Yeah, well, I mean, that just seems so incredibly stupid and, you know, easily traceable. You know, kinda surprising. Added to the fact that the discovery was so conveniently timed.
Chad: Are you accusing me of cooking the books to get ej?
Ej: So, you’re still angry with me?
Nicole: [Chuckles] Why would I be angry? Hm? Just because you unceremoniously dumped me behind my back? Ugh! But you know what? I really don’t wanna get into that right now, because like I said, now is not a good time.
Ej: Because you’re mourning a stuffed animal?
Nicole: At least he had sentimental value.
Ej: [Chuckles] Clearly. After I threw him in the trash, you, what, fished him out?
Nicole: Yeah, I fished him out. And who the hell are you to throw something out that belongs to me?
Ej: The bear was a connection between you and rafe, a connection you said you wanted to break. I thought you meant it.
Nicole: Oh, and I thought you meant it when you said you were done with samantha. But I guess you took her back in, even though she cheated on you. I guess–I guess she does have some redeeming qualities, right? I mean, she’s obnoxious and self-absorbed, and not to mention, she likes to behead stuffed animals.
Ej: [Laughs] You think samantha’s responsible for that?
Nicole: Who else would do something so loony? I’m telling you, that woman is starting to scare the hell out of me.
Ava: I really don’t know why you would think I would destroy a cute little stuffed bear. He never did anything to me.
Rafe: It’s not him. It’s what he represents.
Ava: Which is?
Rafe: My friendship with nicole. You know, you haven’t exactly made it a secret that it bothers you.
Ava: You and nicole keep telling me I don’t have anything to worry about, and I believe you.
Rafe: Okay. Good.
Ava: Although if you think I mutilated poor old duke, then has something changed? Do I have a reason to be jealous?
Limu emu… & doug
Rex: Why would you wanna buy me a beer?
Xander: Well, the last time you and I ran into each other, we didn’t get to finish our conversation.
Rex: We did as far as I’m concerned.
Xander: Look, rex, I– I loved sarah, and I still don’t really understand what happened with you two, so…
[Sighs] Come on, it’s one beer. What could be the harm?
Abigail: Sarah’s my cousin, gwen. She’s family. Why shouldn’t I help find her?
Gwen: [Sighs] I mean, you’re–you’re a reporter, you’re not a private detective.
Abigail: Well, I can draw attention to the fact that nobody knows where sarah is, not even her own mother.
Gwen: She’s a grown woman, right? She’s a doctor, isn’t she? I mean, she said to rex that– that she–she wanted to have time to work on herself. Obviously that means that she wanted to have that time to work alone.
Abigail: Gwen, that was almost a year ago.
Gwen: Yeah, but, you know, when you’re having a difficult time, you don’t wanna tell your mum all the details, do you? Why imagine the worst?
Abigail: I promised aunt maggie that I would try to find out where sarah is, and I intend to live up to that promise.
Gwen: Oh, please, that is not what this is about, and you know it. You were just trying to get back at me.
Rafe: Ava, you have nothing to worry about. Nicole and I, we’re just– we’re old friends. That’s all.
Ava: Okay, so, why corner me about the bear?
Rafe: Listen, you said that you were going to basic black the other day to see nicole.
Ava: To invite her over for new year’s eve. And when I got there, she was out, so I left, without laying a hand on the bear.
Rafe: Okay, okay, fine. I’m sorry, all right. It’s just, uh, I’m a cop. You had means, opportunity.
Ava: But no motive. Nicole has been a really good friend to me, and you are the man that I love. I would never do anything to hurt either one of you. And I know that neither one of you would do anything to hurt me.
Ej: Believe me, I know samantha can be vindictive. I just can’t imagine her taking her revenge on a stuffed animal.
Nicole: Well, sami doesn’t want me to forget how much she hates me.
Ej: I think she conveys that rather clearly with her words.
Nicole: [Scoffs] Okay, you don’t wanna take me seriously, fine, but don’t come crying to me when you find a horse’s head in your bed some night.
Ej: If you really think samantha did this, I’ll just ask her.
Ej: [Clears throat] As soon as we’re on speaking terms again.
Nicole: Well, that won’t be for a while. Sami left town.
Ej: Excuse me?
Nicole: Oh, you didn’t know? Sami packed up and rode off into the sunset with lucas by her side.
Kate: I mean, ej’s a lot of things, but he’s very rarely careless. I find it very hard to believe that he would leave a paper trail for you to follow.
Chad: Well, kate, it’s not like the, uh–it’s not like the payments were in a file labeled “samantha’s kidnapping,” right? There was a–a fair amount of digging that was involved.
Kate: Uh-huh. So what prompted that digging?
Chad: Well, uh, the kidnapper told the cops that–that, uh, ej was the mastermind, so, for the sake of the company, I decided to find out if it was true. I wasn’t gonna let him take all of us down with him.
Kate: I see. Well, I mean, that makes sense, you know. [Chuckles] But I don’t believe it. So why don’t you just tell me the truth? You planted the evidence, didn’t you?
Abigail: Gwen. [Scoffs] I wanna find my cousin, okay? This has nothing to do with you.
Gwen: But it has everything to do with xander, okay? The man that I love. Now, he was hurt terribly by sarah, and all of this is just gonna stir up all those memories again.
Jack: Wait a minute, let me see if I hear you correctly. You are saying that abigail should forget that sarah’s missing and make no effort to help locate her, because you’re thinking that it’ll make it easier for xander?
Gwen: Yes, he’s gonna have to read about it in the paper, in “the spectator” every day, and what good is that gonna do? It’s just a local paper anyway.
Abigail: A big story like that could get picked up by a chicago paper.
Jack: Or the wire service!
Gwen: What big story? Come on. Sarah decided at the last minute that she did not want to marry xander.
Abigail: And that’s the reason that he’s with you now.
Gwen: How dare you?
Abigail: That’s why you don’t want sarah to be found.
Gwen: Oh, my god. Do you hear that? Do you hear that? She’s out to get me.
Abigail: Ugh, you always think that I’m the source of all your problems.
Gwen: Because you are always trying to undermine me. You are always trying to keep me from the people that I love. You first did it with our father…
Jack: That is not true!
Gwen: And now you’re doing it with xander, and I will be damned if I let you succeed.
Rex: And when sarah and i met up to go to the airport, she dumped me, just like I told you before.
Xander: Do you remember her exact words?
Rex: She said that she realized that she was not prepared to spend the rest of her life with any man, that she just needed some time to figure out what she did want.
Xander: I mean, it just doesn’t make any sense. All right, the night I left sarah before the wedding, we were so happy. We couldn’t wait to get married. And then she torpedoed all of that to be with you. And then what? The next day she does another 180? I mean, that’s not the sarah I know.
Rex: I don’t– I don’t understand it either. But I’ll tell you this, she had her mind made up. She basically warned me not to come looking for her.
Xander: This whole situation is…
Xander: Right? Especially when you factor in the whole kristen, susan bit.
Rex: What are you talking about?
Rafe: Why don’t we just go on home, okay?
Ava: Okay, you know what? I think that you owe me an apology first, ’cause I am offended that you would think that I would do something so deranged.
Rafe: Okay. Okay, you’re right. All right, I’m sorry, okay? I am sorry that, uh, I was suspicious of you.
Ava: Thank you.
Rafe: You know what? For whatever it’s worth, nicole thinks it’s sami that did it, and she’s probably right.
Ava: Huh. You know, now that you mention it, I did see a bottle blonde getting onto the elevator as I was leaving. I didn’t get a close look, but I suppose it could’ve been sami.
Rafe: Oh, yeah? Do you remember what time it was?
Ava: No. Why do you ask?
Rafe: ‘Cause there’s security cameras all over that building, so maybe I can get a closer look at, uh, whatever you saw.
Ej: Samantha… and lucas?
[Scoffs] You must be joking.
Nicole: Rafe heard it from allie. And she said that sami decided that she wants to be with lucas. You know, her first love. So they left town so they could be alone together.
Ej: I–I can’t believe this. I–I mean, I knew samantha was upset with me, but to go running back to lucas?
Nicole: Oh, yeah. It kinda reminds me of– of our situation, you know, you running back to sami. The only difference is I really don’t care. In fact, I’m relieved to be rid of you.
Ej: It’s insane.
Nicole: That I’m relieved to be rid of you?
Ej: That samantha went back to lucas. He was the one who had had her kidnapped.
Nicole: According to the police, that would be you.
Ej: You said you believed me.
Nicole: I also believed you when you said that you were done with sami and you wanted to be with me, but, what– what the hell do I know, right?
Ej: I did not have samantha kidnapped. It was lucas. That little weasel set me up.
Nicole: You got any proof?
Ej: No, but I–
Nicole: No, no, yeah. Well, I guess the evidence is piling up. And the dimera board thinks so too now that you’re out of a job.
Ej: [Chuckles] The latest so-called evidence is nothing but a pack of lies that were manufactured by my own brother.
Chad: I had no reason to plant the evidence. Really?
Chad: Kate, you think that I’m that vindictive?
Kate: [Laughs] Well, I mean, I do know that you were very bothered by the fact that ej was able to worm his way into johnny’s movie, which meant that he would’ve been having sex scenes with abigail.
Chad: Yeah, and he did that to get under my skin.
Kate: It worked. So, framing ej would be perfect payback.
Chad: Yep, you are right. After everything ej has done, I would be completely justified in planting the evidence against him. But I didn’T. So, maybe this conversation should just be over then.
Kate: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. This is a very dangerous game that you’re playing, because if ej can prove what you’ve done–
Chad: He can’t, because I didn’t!
Kate: [Sighs] I want you to swear on your father’s grave that you’re telling me the truth. Oh! I knew it. I knew it.
Chad: Okay, you know what? Yeah, fine, you know what? Yeah, the evidence was planted. But guess what, it wasn’t by me. It was by lucas. That’s right, it was your son. -We are here! -For new homeowners,
Jack: Gwen? Gwen? Would you please calm down? Abigail is not trying to come between you and xander.
Gwen: God, you’re taking her side. Why am I not surprised?
Jack: I’m not taking anyone’s side. This is a bad situation. We’re very worried that something terrible might have happened to sarah.
Abigail: I swear to you, I am only looking into sarah’s disappearance because I’m genuinely worried about her.
Ava: And if it wasn’t for the two of us, right, she’d be in statesville right now. She’s not gonna double-cross us.
Gwen: I helped her escape, because she said to me that if I didn’t, she would go and tell xander where sarah is. If she finds her–
Ava: Okay, I’m telling you, no one is gonna find her, okay? You don’t need to worry.
Abigail: I–I–I think I should go now, so…
Abigail: That little paper in boston is so lucky to be getting the two of you. I hope you have a wonderful time. Make it successful again. And just remember your promise that you’re both coming back here soon?
Jennifer: Absolutely, baby.
Jack: Absolutely, and you tell the kids again how much we love them, and please bring them out to see us.
Abigail: Of course, yeah, as soon as you get settled, so…
Jennifer: I love you so much, baby.
Abigail: I love you too.
Jack: Goodbye, sweetheart.
Abigail: Dad, see ya.
Jack: Love you.
Jack: It’s all right.
Jennifer: Um, I’m gonna walk you out.
[Sighs] Gwen? Gwen? What’s really going on here? Why are you so afraid that you’re gonna lose xander?
Xander: And while kristen was pretending to be susan, she tipped me off about you and sarah being in bed together.
Rex: Wait, so you didn’t know you were hearing it from kristen?
Xander: Yeah, not until susan told me a few weeks ago. I went straight to the police to have it out with kristen. I had to know if she had something to do with sarah leaving me.
Rex: Well, what did she say?
Xander: That she didn’T. That she only did it for the pure satisfaction of being the one to break the bad news to me.
Rex: That would be kristen.
Xander: I can’t believe i fell for her act.
Rex: Hm. She’s creative, I’ll give her that. You know, the dimera’s have this secret deserted island that they use to get rid of people permanently. Kristen was planning on shipping my mother off there.
Xander: What, she thought kate’s family wouldn’t notice that she was gone?
Rex: No, no, she had that covered too. She had this–this mask that made her look exactly like my mom. She wore my mom’s clothes. She showed up here to break up with jake dimera loudly. My dad was telling me that she wanted everyone in here to– to hear her say, “I’m through with jake, I’m through with salem, and I’m–I’m leaving town.”
Xander: So, the story would get around, and no one would ask any questions about where kate was, at least for a while?
Rex: Yep. It’s a nifty way to get rid of someone who figures out what you’re up to. You’re lucky it didn’t happen to you.
Kate: Nope, nope. Lucas wouldn’t do that, not even to ej.
Chad: Yep, I caught him red-handed. I walked in, and he was sitting at that computer.
Kate: He doesn’t have a password, chad.
Chad: He had yours, kate.
Kate: Ugh! Oh, my god.
Chad: Yep. He was the one that made it look like ej was using company funds to pay off sami’s kidnapper.
Kate: Are you sure?
Chad: I am positive. I confronted him. He said that it would be in both of our best interests if we let ej take the fall.
Kate: Oh, my god, so, he wanted ej out of the way so he’d have a chance with sami?
Kate: Which actually worked, because sami turned her back on ej, and lucas and sami left salem this morning. I–
[Sighs] Oh, my god. But what I don’t get is why would lucas go through all the trouble of framing ej? I mean, they pressed charges against ej already for the kidnapping.
Chad: Well, he was charged, but I don’t think he’s guilty.
Kate: Okay, what does that mean?
Chad: It means that I’m pretty sure that the kidnapper was lucas.
Nicole: So, chad actually framed you, huh?
Ej: Do you honestly believe I’d be sloppy enough to leave a paper trail?
Ej: Chad concocted those payments to samantha’s kidnapper, so he could put the final nail in my coffin. He’s always wanted to run the company on his own. But he knew shin would never get rid of me.
Nicole: So, in your version of events, lucas kidnapped sami. Then why did the hired goon point the finger at you?
Ej: On lucas’s orders, I’m sure.
Nicole: And chad phonied up evidence to make you look guiltier?
[Chuckles] That is some conspiracy theory.
Ej: I’m telling you, I’m innocent. I didn’t have samantha kidnapped, so therefore I’d have no reason to make those payments.
Nicole: I don’t care…
Nicole: Okay? ‘Cause it’s over between us, both personally and professionally, and now that you’re out at dimera, I suggest you leave before I have you thrown out.
Ej: Not until I do what I came here to do.
Nicole: [Sighs] I shudder at what that would be.
Ej: I have to tell you how sorry I am for hurting you. I’m praying that you’ll find it in your heart to forgive me.
Ava: Sorry, rafe, I was– I was just rushing around. I have no idea what time I left nicole’s office.
Rafe: That’s okay. It’s fine. Actually, you know, all I have to do is look at the footage from the one camera that covers the elevator, and I’ll just– I’ll scroll through the last 24 hours.
Ava: Are you seriously gonna go to all that trouble over a stuffed bear?
Rafe: It could have been someone sending a message to nicole.
Ava: You just said yourself that it was probably sami, so, what are you gonna do if you see her on those tapes? Are you gonna arrest her?
Rafe: No, I’m not–no, I’m not gonna arrest her. I’m not gonna do anything, because she left town this morning.
Ava: Oh, well, then you better call the isa, because the stuffed bear killer is on the loose.
Rafe: Okay, I overreacted, all right? But cutting up that bear, it’s a little juvenile and petty, even for sami.
Ava: Excuse me? Nicole slept with sami’s husband.
Rafe: Estranged husband.
Ava: I don’t care. I mean, if you ask me, nicole is lucky sami didn’t do much worse.
Trelegy for copd.
Rex: Well, look, I have a flight to catch, and I haven’t even packed yet.
Xander: Going back to chicago?
Rex: Yes, my doctors without borders tour is over.
Xander: I just wanna thank you for making the time to talk to me. Wasn’t that bad, right?
Rex: Beer makes you easier to take.
Xander: Rex? If you hear from her, will you let me know?
Rex: I will. You do the same?
Rex: I hope you find sarah. You deserve to get some answers.
Gwen: I was awful to abigail.
Jack: Yeah. Yeah, you were.
Gwen: It’s just that… I have never, ever loved anyone the way that I love xander. And nobody has ever had my back the way that he does. And, well, he makes me laugh, which is why I’m so scared of– I’m so scared of losing him.
Jack: Why? Why is that? I mean, it seems like the two of you have a really good thing going.
Gwen: He told me how much he loved sarah. He told me all about her. And if she were to come back into the picture–
Jack: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, wait–there is something really important that you need to remember. Sarah dumped xander on the morning of their wedding, and when she did it, she told him the reason was because she realized that she could never forgive him for switching her baby with kristen’S. And you need to understand that even if sarah does come back, that’s not the sort of thing you can just forget. Why don’t you just calm down and believe that everything’s gonna work out just fine? You have nothing to worry about.
Kate: You think lucas had sami kidnapped? Lucas?
Chad: Yes, lucas. He basically admitted it.
Kate: [Stammers] Why? Why would–why?
Chad: Why? To keep sami away from ej. What do you think? You know–you know how much lucas loves sami, and love makes you do really crazy stuff.
Kate: No, no, no, no, no, no, I–no, I–no. I don’t believe it.
Chad: Look, I know that it’s hard right now, especially after what happened with philip.
Kate: What do you mean by that?
Chad: Well, you know, one son went missing, and then the other one kidnapped his ex-wife. So, must be a very hard time for you.
Kate: It is a hard time for me, because this means that I’ve failed two sons.
Chad: Well, I mean… I’m not gonna tell anybody. So, the truth never has to come out.
Kate: Yeah, well, maybe it should.
Nicole: Thank you for your apology. But as far as me forgiving you, that’s gonna be a hard no.
Ej: I know I made a mistake.
Nicole: Oh, a mistake? You humiliated me in front of sami, and you let her prance around and gloat that you chose her over me again.
Ej: Everything was happening so fast.
Nicole: Oh, okay. Sami said that you ripped up the divorce papers before you were arrested. Was she lying?
Ej: No, I–
Nicole: No, no. Okay, do you remember christmas day? Remember me taking time away from my daughter to come see you in jail? Do you remember the very long conversation we had about, “who could possibly have railroaded you”? And do you remember in that conversation, we were talking about sami being kidnapped, and it didn’t occur to you to tell me that you weren’t gonna get a divorce?
Ej: I was focused on proving my innocence.
Nicole: Oh, and you couldn’t stop thinking about yourself long enough to tell me that you were gonna work it out with your wife?
Ej: I realize now that was wrong of me.
Nicole: Congratulations. I know. I know why you kept your mouth shut about sami. Just in case she dumped you. Well, she did. And now you’ve come crawling back to me. Well, I am sorry to disappoint you, because I sure as hell will not be your consolation prize. Hi susan! Honey?
Jack: Let’s not forget that xander found sarah in bed with rex on the morning of what was supposed to be their wedding, and she told him she wanted him out of her life. Why would he want her back now?
Gwen: Why wouldn’t he?
Jack: [Laughs] Because he cares deeply for you. He covered for you when that whole mess came up about the drug running.
Gwen: He did that for you. He did, he–he–he wanted you to think well of me.
Jack: You don’t know that.
Gwen: Yes, I do. He told me.
Jack: That man was ready to go back to prison for you. For you. He wouldn’t give up his freedom for some girl he cares nothing about. I know him. I know how deeply he loves you. There’s nothing in the world, not even sarah, that’s gonna change that.
Ava: Oh, hey, did you get a warrant for sami brady’s arrest?
Rafe: No, I resisted that temptation.
Ava: Mm? Well, you were gone a long time.
Rafe: Yeah, well, I was getting you this.
Ava: [Chuckles] You already apologized.
Rafe: I did. I just wanted you to know I’m really sorry. I jumped all over you, and I made you feel like I didn’t trust you.
Ava: Yeah, well, most people don’t trust me, so, I’m used to it.
Rafe: Sorry, it’s just, uh, someone breaking into nicole’s office and destroying her personal property just made me uneasy.
Ava: Well, I wouldn’t worry about nicole too much. That’s one woman who knows how to take care of herself.
Ej: I–I should’ve told you I was thinking of reconciling with samantha. It was disrespectful and dishonest.
Nicole: And don’t forget cowardly and craven.
Ej: Hm. The whole thing was a major lapse in judgment. I–I never should have torn up those divorce papers. I shouldn’t have even entertained the thought of getting back together with her.
Ej: But it did accomplish one thing. It made me realize that you’re the one I truly want.
Nicole: [Chuckles] Oh, yeah. Because sami dumped you for lucas.
Ej: I don’t want you because samantha is with him. I want you because you’re an extraordinary woman.
Nicole: Oh, please, would you just stop it? Please just stop. Do you know how many times I have heard that? Oh, sure, sure, you want me right now, but ultimately you will choose sami. Eric wanted me, but ultimately he chooses god. And rafe! Rafe wants me too, but you know what? In the end, he’s choosing ava. Do you know how sick and tired I am of men wanting it both ways? When is someone gonna put me first?
Nicole: You know what, no, just, mm–just leave, okay?
Ej: No, I think we should talk about this.
Nicole: I don’t want to talk about it. I’m calling security.
Ej: Please don’t do that. Please.
Nicole: Fine. You stay. I’ll leave.
Kate: I mean, of course I don’t wanna betray lucas. I mean, that is the last thing I wanna do. But to frame ej? I mean, he didn’t do this.
Chad: Okay, look, lucas finally has everything that he’s wanted for so long. He has sami back. Yet if you take that away from him, he is never gonna forgive you. I mean, ever. And more importantly, you’re probably gonna be sending him to prison, or bayview if–if he plans on, you know, pleading temporary insanity. Would you really do that to your own son?
Kate: No! Of course I wouldn’T.
Kate: I mean, really? The point is are we gonna send ej to prison for something he didn’t do? I mean, actually he doesn’t deserve that.
Chad: Look, sure, ej may not have kidnapped sami, but it’s not like he is some noble, wonderful guy. I mean, you know damn well that he’s ruthless and corrupt, and he’s caused a lot of pain to a lot of people. You think lucas is– is a good guy, right? I mean, sure, he went off the rails a little bit with this whole kidnapping thing, but he did it for love. He’s a–he’s a devoted father and a loving son. I mean…
Chad: Or do you disagree?
Kate: No, I don’t disagree.
Chad: Okay, then. But, kate, please, keep what I told you a secret. Can you do that? Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Rafe: So can we get past this? Can you forgive me for acting like a jerk?
Ava: [Chuckles] No, I can’T. You can take your apology and shove it!
Rafe: Ava? Ava, did you hear me? Do you forgive me?
Ava: Yes, of course I forgive you.
[Soft tense music]
Jennifer: Is everything okay in here?
Gwen: [Clears throat] Yes, um, I just wanted to say that I’m sorry for how I– I treated abigail. I’m– I know today has been a very difficult day for the three of you, and I’ve made it a lot harder.
Jack: If you need anything, you need me to stick around? Put off the flight to boston.
Jennifer: Yeah, we can.
Gwen: No, you don’t need to do that. And I promise I will stay out of abigail’s way.
Jack: If you need anything, call me.
Gwen: Thanks, jack.
Jack: You can call me dad.
Gwen: [Chuckles] Thanks, dad.
Ava: Okay, well, best be going then.
Jack: You remember what I told you. Sarah made her choice. She left xander of her own free will, and he knows it.
Abigail: What are you doing here?
Xander: Well, maggie said that you were maybe looking into what happened with sarah?
Abigail: Right, yeah, I am.
Xander: I wanna help.
Abigail: You know, I was gonna call you, actually. I’m hoping that you’ll tell me everything you remember about the day that sarah left town.
Xander: I was just talking to rex about that day. He was probably the last person to see her.
Abigail: Tell me everything that you know.
Kate: If I keep lucas’s secret, and roman finds out that I let sami leave town with her kidnapper, he’s never gonna forgive me.
Chad: Whoa, okay, first of all, you keep calling lucas her kidnapper. You–you know as well as I do that–that lucas would never hurt sami. I mean, he’s crazy about her. And secondly, you know, you’re worried about roman finding out the truth, so, you’re gonna choose your own happiness over your own son, your own blood?
Kate: That’s not fair at all. I’m thinking of lucas too, chad.
Chad: Yeah? How?
Kate: How? Lucas kidnapped sami. He kept her a prisoner for a long time. That’s not like him. He might need professional help.
Chad: Well, you know, he didn’t seem unbalanced at all when I talked to him.
Chad: You–you know as well as I do that sami’s in a sick relationship with ej, so, in my opinion, just in my opinion, I think he did what it–what it took to break ej’s hold on sami, you know, because he loves her so much. So if roman finds out, you just– you just tell him that. The best thing that you can do for lucas is just pretend that we never had this conversation.
Kate: Really? I don’t think I can keep quiet about this.
Ej: Keep quiet about what? I’d be very interested to know.
