Days of Our Lives Transcript

Chad: I’ll just spin it. I’ll tell shin that I thought ej was guilty and that I didn’t wanna let him get away with it. That I was serving the course of justice.
Kate: [Sighs] Shin doesn’t care about serving the course of justice, okay? He just cares about market share. And when one co-ceo is trying to send the other co-ceo up the river, well, that just looks really bad for the corporate image.
Chad: Well, I-I have to– I have to take my chances. I mean–I mean, ej’s been a real son of a bitch since you got back to town, but– but he’s my brother, and he welcomed me into the family when he didn’t have to, so I’m sorry, but I’m gonna have to, um, I’m gonna have to tell them that he didn’t do it. Tell them the truth.
Melinda: You’re counsel for mr. Dimera? I was under the impression that he’d be representing himself.
Belle: Oh, well, you were misinformed. About a lot of things, actually.
Melinda: This is hardly standard procedure.
Belle: Well, it is well within my client’s rights. Oh, I didn’t make it official. Mr. Dimera, would you accept my services as your counsel?
Ej: Oh, I’d be happy to.
Melinda: Well, isn’t this an interesting arrangement. One that I can’t imagine will go over well with the board, considering your new client was ousted from dimera.
Belle: Oh, melinda. I think you should be focusing on coming up with a new strategy because you’re gonna need it.
Rafe: This doesn’t make any sense. What the hell is going on here?
Shawn: Everything all right, boss?
Rafe: Not exactly.
Shawn: Now what’s got you so upset?
Rafe: I’m being set up. Someone’s got it in for me.
Gwen: Oh, for god’s sake! Oh, ava.
Ava: Bad day?
Gwen: Yeah, you could say that.
Ava: Let me guess. Xander still hot on sarah’s trail?
Gwen: [Sighs] Hotter than ever. And now he’s teamed up with my little sister.
[Doorbell ringing repeatedly]
Abigail: Hold your horses, I’m coming!
Xander: Took you long enough. You have to answer the door around here?
Abigail: It happens to be harold’s morning off, and, you know, you might have called first.
Xander: I didn’t wanna waste any time after I got your message, so out with it. What’s going on?
Abigail: I may have a lead on sarah.
Steve: No, brady, I’m sorry. I don’t have any leads on kristen yet. But I’m on the case, and i should have something to report soon. Yeah, you’ll be the first to know. All right. Sweetness? Just about ready in there?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Kayla: Uh, how do I look?
Steve: You are a vision. Even as a bride of christ, you’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen. Oh. But you’re still having doubts, aren’t you, baby?
Kayla: How could I not? Dressing up as a nun? It’s blasphemous, steve.
Steve: Sweetness, it’s for a noble cause. I think the big dude upstairs will forgive you. Besides, we don’t have many options. We need a way into that convent if we’re gonna find kristen. And this is it.
Xander: You have a lead on sarah? Why didn’t you just say so?
Abigail: Well, I just did.
Xander: Well, what is it?
Abigail: Well, I went to the dimera travel department to see when the jet was last used for non-dimera business.
Xander: And when was that?
Abigail: Well, it-it wasn’T.
Xander: Wait, that’s your lead? How is that a lead?
Abigail: Well, because we have more than one jet. The company keeps several older models as a part of their fleet that can be reserved for personal use, and apparently, one of them was used for non-official business around the time that sarah disappeared.
Xander: Oh, my god, was sarah on that jet? Did you–did you show the pilot a picture?
Abigail: I’m afraid that I couldn’T.
Xander: And why not?
Abigail: Because he’s gone.
Belle: [Clears throat]
Ej: Not that I don’t appreciate this, but just the other day, you went on and on about not wanting to represent me, yet here you are. What made you change your mind?
Belle: Mm, someone may have convinced me that you might be innocent.
Ej: And to whom am I indebted for rising to my defense?
Belle: Nicole walker.
Ej: Nicole stood up for me?
Belle: Yeah, but she still hates your guts, and that’s pretty much a quote.
Ej: And I don’t blame her, but I’m grateful that she convinced you to do the right thing, even though defending me will, in all probability, risk your position as general counsel at dimera.
Belle: Hmm. I can handle the board.
Ej: And what about your other concern?
Belle: Don’t worry. I can handle sami too. This is the sound of nature breathing.
Barnes: The court will now hear the case of the state versus elvis dimera. Are all parties present?
Melinda: Da melinda trask for the people, judge barnes.
Belle: Isabella brady for the defense, your honor.
Barnes: So the defendant has chosen not to represent himself?
Ej: That’s correct, your honor.
Barnes: Well, I applaud your decision. Now that we have a lawyer squared away, we can start with jury selection.
Ej: Actually, your honor…
Belle: Ej, what are you doing?
Barnes: I’ll allow it. What is it, mr. Dimera?
Ej: If it pleases the court, I would like to waive my right to a jury trial.
Steve: Listen, baby, if you’re still having second thoughts about this…
Kayla: No, no, it’s important, and it’s, uh, it’s for a noble cause, like you said.
Kayla: Yeah, and, um, and so I’m just gonna put my worries of blasphemy aside, and I’m– I’m going to impersonate a nun. And whatever it takes to find kristen, I am–I’m all in. Do you really–do you really think that kristen’s at that convent?
Steve: Well, she hid out there once before. Stands to reason she’d try it again.
Kayla: Yeah. Yeah, that makes sense.
Steve: Let’s get this show on the road, sister.
Xander: The pilot’s dead?
Belle: No, no, he’s not dead. He just–he quit, and apparently, not that long after the non-official flight possibly transporting sarah to god knows where.
Xander: Now, that’s not suspicious at all.
Abigail: It does seem to suggest some sort of payoff. Or that he at least knew how to get out while the getting was still good.
Xander: He? So you have a name?
Abigail: Unfortunately, that’s all I have.
Xander: Well, that’s a start. Let’s hop online and track him down.
Abigail: Oh, yeah, him and along with everybody else that’s got the same name.
Xander: Well, how do you suggest we narrow it down?
Abigail: Well, obviously, I’m gonna go back to the dimera travel department, and I’m gonna see if he left any contact information.
Xander: So why do you need me?
Abigail: I don’T.
Xander: You called me.
Abigail: To update you. I’m–it’s your big idea to come and show up here.
Xander: Fine, and I am very grateful for the opportunity, but, uh, I don’t wanna slow you down, so I’m gonna go. Please call me as soon as you learn anything, yeah?
Abigail: Yeah, I–yes. Will do.
Gwen: Of course, abigail says their looking into sarah’s disappearance has nothing to do with me. That she’s just trying to look for her long-lost cousin, but you know what, I don’t buy that for a single minute.
Ava: Mm. Little miss goody two shoes, right?
Gwen: Those are the ones that you need to look out for the most. And especially with abigail, it’s all–pfft. It’s a big act.
Ava: Really? Well, you should know.
Gwen: I do. I do know. I’ve seen her dark side. I’ve seen her vengeance. I’ve seen her cruelty. How she revels in payback.
Ava: Oh. Well, that’s something we have in common. Because I am reveling in payback, myself right now.
Shawn: All right, so both of these perps are saying that you planted evidence against them?
Rafe: So they claim.
Shawn: But I mean it’s– obviously, they’re lying, right?
Rafe: Of course they’re lying. Really, you even have to ask that? I’d never do anything like that. Even if I did, you know, in all the years in my career, I have never had one complaint against me, and now I’ve got two in the same damn day?
Shawn: So you’re sure these guys don’t know each other?
Rafe: Right now, I’m not sure of anything. You know, as far as I can tell, no, they never crossed paths on the outside, but I mean, once they’re in the system, who knows?
Shawn: Well maybe–I don’t know, maybe they ran into each other and they realized they had something in common. You know, punish you for– for whatever reason, and they, you know, decided they would, i don’t know, help each other out. Or…
Rafe: Or what?
Shawn: Or someone put them up to it. We hit the bike trails every weekend
Rafe: So you think someone put these clowns up to this?
Shawn: Well, it makes about as much sense as two perps at the exact same time claiming that you framed them.
Rafe: Yeah. Sure does.
Shawn: So can you think of anybody who has something against you? One that might, you know, wanted to get revenge?
Rafe: No. No, not off the top of my head. I mean, look, as commish, you always got the target on your back.
Shawn: That’s right. This person–I mean, this person’s gotta have a real axe to grind.
Rafe: Yeah. Sure does feel personal.
Shawn: So can you think of anybody who might have a grudge against you?
Gwen: So you plan to get revenge on rafe for sleeping with nicole?
Ava: You disapprove.
Gwen: Oh, come on, you know me better than that. I’m just very interested to hear how you’re going to do it.
Ava: Well, it’s already in motion. And let’s just put it this way: Rafe is going to find himself in a little bit of trouble at work.
Gwen: What kind of trouble?
Ava: So I, uh, have a connection with a few gentlemen who have found themselves recently wrongly incarcerated, and I may have convinced them to file a report saying that a certain commissioner planted evidence on them.
[Laughs] I mean, that’s a–that’s a fairly serious crime, is it not?
Ava: You bet your ass it is. Cops go to jail for that.
Gwen: So you want to send the man that you say that you love to prison?
Ava: Okay, look. This is just between us, okay? I need you to keep your mouth shut about it.
Xander: Hello, ladies. What does gwen need to keep her mouth shut about?
Chad: Hey! Hey, what are you doing here?
Abigail: I just stopped by travel to, uh, see what they got going on, but, uh, departmental meeting, so it’s a ghost town.
Chad: Ah, sounds like the new editor in chief at “the spectator” is hard on the trail for sarah horton.
Abigail: Doing my damndest. It’s mostly for aunt maggie.
Abigail: So you wouldn’t happen to have any information about one of dimera’s old pilots, would you? Guy named ned grainger?
Chad: Uh, ned. Yeah, he was here for years until last spring.
Abigail: Do you know why he left?
Chad: I don’t, but it was pretty sudden if i remember correctly.
Abigail: I don’t suppose you’d happen to have any of his contact information, would you?
Chad: I do not. Yeah, but now that I think of it, it was a headache for payroll. Grainger’s last check was returned, and they were never able to track him down.
Abigail: Well, damn.
Chad: Yeah. Why, what’s going on?
[Knock at door]
Steve: Excuse me. Mother superior?
Mother superior: Good evening, father, sister. What can I do for you?
Steve: Well, reverend mother, we’re in need of assistance, and we’re hoping you can help us.
I may have moderate to
severe rheumatoid arthritis.
Mother superior: Well, of course, I’d be happy to help in any way I can. You are visiting here, I assume?
Steve: Yes, yes, we are.
Mother superior: Would you like some water?
Steve: No, thank you. You see, sister mary elizabeth has been part of an exchange program with a small parish in the tuscan countryside. Very small, in fact, and I’m afraid their convent was lost in a fire.
Mother superior: Well, how dreadful. Was anyone hurt?
Steve: No, no, no, thank god. But there is a matter of lodging. Everyone else besides the sister has been relocated to convents temporarily.
Mother superior: I see.
Steve: And I am scheduled to fly back to the states in just a few days, so I would hate for sister mary elizabeth to be forced to cut her mission short. So I’m hoping and praying that you can take her in.
Gwen: Hi, I um, uh, thought you were on your way to go and see abigail.
Xander: I already did.
Gwen: Oh. Right, well. Okay, you know ava, don’t you?
Xander: In a way.
Ava: Unfortunately, when we knew each other, I was a bit worse for wear.
Xander: In my former life as a caregiver. But don’t worry, those days of altruism are long behind me. So what exactly were you two discussing that gwen needs to keep her mouth shut about?
Ava: Oh. Rafe’s surprise party. His birthday is in a few weeks, and I am getting a jump-start on planning, so I was swearing gwen here to secrecy.
Gwen: Trust me. My lips are sealed.
Ava: Thank you. You too. All right, need to get out of here, I got a lot of things to do, so I will see you later.
Gwen: Good luck with the party.
Xander: That was strange.
Gwen: What was?
Xander: You two. Chatting away? How do you even know each other?
Chad: Hey, I’m sorry I couldn’t be more help, but I really gotta go. I’m due in court.
Abigail: Oh, ej’s trial. Yeah.
Chad: Yeah, I’m the first witness, so I don’t wanna be late.
Abigail: Look at you all excited to bury your brother.
Chad: Yeah, no. I’m starting to think that he might be, uh, might be innocent.
Abigail: Really? You were ready to burn him at the stake, what happened?
Chad: I–look, ej’s been an ass. The whole thing with johnny’s movie, coming onto you to try to get under my skin, trying to undermine me here at dimera. I was–I was angry, but I may have overreacted a bit. Everything ej’s pulled, he doesn’t deserve to go to prison.
Abigail: You found proof that he masterminded sami’s kidnapping. He deserves to go to prison for that, and he will. After you testify.
Chad: Not necessarily.
Barnes: Mr. Dimera, did I hear you correctly? You waive your right to a jury trial?
Ej: I do, your honor.
Belle: Judge barnes, may I have a moment to confer with my client?
Barnes: It would certainly help if the defendant and his counsel were on the same page, so we’ll take a five minute recess. Not a minute longer.
Belle: What the hell are you doing? I am the attorney; you are the client, which means you sit there and shut up and let me do my job.
Ej: I’m just saving us a lot of time.
Belle: By opting out of a jury trial?
Ej: I’d rather take my chances with the judge.
Belle: Ej, you are an attorney; you know full well it is harder to sway a judge than a jury!
Ej: Considering I’m innocent, I shouldn’t have to sway anyone. Besides, I think he’ll be fair.
Belle: Really? Why?
Ej: I’m feeling lucky, i guess, and again, I’m innocent, so how could I lose?
Belle: What is going on here, ej?
Ej: What’s the big mystery? I trust the system, and I’m willing to let it work.
Belle: Oh, please. You don’t trust anyone or anything. So what is it, you think that you’re gonna get to the judge? Or have you already?
Dry eye symptoms
driving you crazy?
Ej: I just think barnes seems like a reasonable person. And given the details of this case, I certainly trust someone who has passed the bar than the hoi-polloi of this town who would love nothing more than to bring down a one-percenter.
Belle: Oh, god, do you know how arrogant you sound?
Ej: I’m simply speaking the truth.
Belle: Okay, well, then do us all a favor and stop speaking. Okay, we are gonna run this defense my way, or I’m out.
Ej: I am very grateful to have you on my side, belle. So I will leave my fate in your very capable hands.
Abigail: So you’re not necessarily gonna testify about what you know? I don’t get it.
Chad: I’m gonna give my testimony, and it will be up to the courts to decide what to do with him.
Abigail: But that’s an obvious decision–I mean, you have hard evidence that ej is guilty as charged, so I mean, when the court hears that– oh, my god. Don’t tell me you are thinking about lying on the stand.
Chad: I didn’t say that.
Abigail: But you are thinking about it. Oh, my god, chad, no. I mean…
[Sighs] Whatever twisted loyalty dimera thing you feel like you have with your brother, you cannot possibly be thinking about perjuring yourself.
Chad: Look, I’m well aware of my legal obligations. I have to go.
Abigail: [Sighs] I’m coming with you.
Chad: I thought you were tracking down information on grainger.
Abigail: I gave him a message to get back to me. I can’t do anything till they respond.
Chad: You don’t have to go just for me.
Abigail: I’m not. Reporter I assigned to the trial is sick, so I’m covering it for “the spectator.”
Gwen: How do I know ava? Um, through her son, charlie.
Xander: Charlie dale? My former intern who turned out to be a rapist?
Gwen: Yeah. Yes, that-that charlie. After he died, um, I wanted to offer ava my condolences. It was such a horrible tragedy, after all.
Xander: Did you know him?
Gwen: No, not well, um. We sort of just bumped into each other once or twice. Ended up sharing sob stories. Turns out we both know what it feels like to be an outcast. We sort of bonded, really.
Xander: Oh, so you bonded with a psychopath.
Gwen: Look, I’m not defending what charlie did, I’m just saying that I–well, I saw that he had this other side to him. He just seemed lost. Like he was sensitive, and i felt that ava deserved to know that her son wasn’t just some soulless monster. You know what I mean?
Shawn: Well? Someone come to mind?
Rafe: [Sighs] Okay, this is gonna sound weird, but there’s, uh, there’s this stuffed bear that nicole and i kinda shared custody of.
Rafe: You’ve met?
Shawn: Well, I-I might’ve, you know, caught a couple of the hand-offs, so.
Rafe: Right, okay. Well, um, yeah, nicole found him on her desk without a head.
Shawn: What? Oh, poor guy.
Rafe: She was totally upset, which, uh, obviously, was the intention, and, you know, the grudge may have been against nicole, but since, you know, I kinda owned duke as well…
Shawn: Well, I mean, it’s worth looking into.
Ava: Hope I’m not interrupting.
Steve: So reverend mother, may we impose on your generosity and ask you to provide a room for sister mary elizabeth?
Mother superior: We’d take in all god’s creatures if we could. In fact, we actually have had several guests staying with us these past few months.
Steve: You don’t say?
Mother superior: And it would certainly be a shame for your– for your mission to be cut short.
Kayla: Well, completing this mission would mean the world to me, mother superior.
Mother superior: Such dedication. Oh, of course, the sister and i will do everything possible to find you a place. I just need to speak with them first. May I get back to you?
Steve: We’d be so grateful.
Steve: You can reach me at this number.
Mother superior: I’ll call you as soon as I have an answer. God bless you, sister. And you, father…?
Mother superior: Oh, father nichols.
Kayla: Thank you.
Steve: Good night.
[Knock at door]
Mother superior: Enter.
Kristen: Excuse me, mother superior. I just saw your visitors leave. May I ask who they were? My plaque psoriasis…
Mother superior: Father nichols was hoping we could take in sister mary elizabeth. I told him I’d have to talk to the sisters, as is our practice, but I do hope we can give him some good news. After all, we do try to find a place for everyone, as we did for you.
Kristen: Yes, and I am so grateful, especially since you’re allowing me to wear this habit, even though I don’t deserve it, given that I’m not one of the sisters.
Mother superior: Well, we do care about you, dear. Even though we would have loved if we’d brought you back in the fold, we understand that your life took you in another direction.
Kristen: Yes, yes, it did. I am–I deeply appreciate you letting me lie low here. I mean, wearing this habit, it makes it less conspicuous.
Mother superior: I understand, and we will always do our best to protect you.
Kristen: Means so much to me.
Mother superior: Well, that pile of papers will still be waiting for me in the morning, so…
[Both laugh] So I think I’ll retire for the evening.
Kristen: Uh, mother, would you mind if I use phone?
Mother superior: Oh. Help yourself, dear. Good night.
Kristen: Good night.
Steve: Well, that went well.
Kayla: I think it did. Don’t you?
Steve: Well, yes.
Steve: You were an awesome nun, sweetness.
Kayla: Oh, I hardly said a word.
Steve: Oh, yeah, but your demeanor was right on target.
Steve: Yeah, and i appreciated how deferential you were to father nichols.
Kayla: Oh, really? Something you’re not used to.
Steve: No, it’s new. I-I kinda liked it. Change of pace.
Kayla: Mm. Well, so what now?
Steve: Now it’s pretty much a waiting game.
Kayla: That’s kinda how it is in pi, right?
Steve: Yeah, yeah, usually.
Steve: But, uh, it’s not usually in a room this nice. With a partner as beautiful as you.
Kayla: Ah. But not deferential.
Steve: Is that over already?
Kayla: Mm-hmm. Once that collar came off.
Steve: [Sighs] Well, truth is, I like it better when you don’t defer.
Shawn: I’m gonna get some coffee.
Rafe: What are you doing here?
Ava: Well, I just thought I’d bring you some food from the bistro. But if you’re busy…
Rafe: Yeah, yeah, actually, yeah, I’m kinda in the middle of something that’s demanding my attention.
Ava: Mm, big case?
Rafe: Can’t really get into it right now.
Ava: Got it.
Ava: Okay, so why don’t i just go drop this off in your office for later? I mean, if that’s okay.
Rafe: Sounds great. Thank you.
[Chuckles] Bye, shawn.
Shawn: Bye. Everything all right?
Rafe: I don’t know.
Shawn: What you thinking?
Rafe: I could be way off-base here, but, uh, I’ve got the feeling that ava is involved in this.
Ava: Ah, rafe. You hypocrite. Look at you, showing the world what a devoted boyfriend you are while all the time, you are just having sex with nicole on the damn conference table. I thought rafe was one of the good guys, that I had to be a better person for him. Thought nicole was my friend. But she’s just a two-faced whore. They completely humiliated me. I’ll tell you this, pardner. Oh, they are not gonna get away with it. Oh, I hope it was worth it, rafael, ’cause you’re gonna pay for it now.
[Cell phone ringing] Ava vitali.
Kristen: This is kristen dimera. Ava, damn it! Did you sic your little friend patch on me?
Barnes: Ms. Brady, the five minutes are up. So if you and your client are done conferring, I’d like to begin this trial.
Belle: Your honor, I, um, would like to ask for more time.
Melinda: More time? That’s unbelievable!
Belle: My client deserves the best defense I can provide, and I just got the case this morning.
Melinda: Your honor, this is outrageous.
Belle: All I am asking is that we adjourn for the day and begin calling witnesses tomorrow.
Melinda: Judge barnes, mr. Dimera is obviously very pleased with his counsel’s confidence, and he’s clearly waived his rights to a jury trial, so I see no reason whatsoever to delay these proceedings.
Barnes: I’m inclined to agree. Ms. Trask, you may call your first witness.
Belle: Her first witness isn’t even here, your honor.
Melinda: The prosecution calls chad dimera to the stand.
Get ready. It’s time for
the savings event of the year.
Barnes: Mr. Dimera, nice of you to join us.
Chad: I’m, uh, I’m sorry I’m late, your honor.
Ej: If it isn’t judas himself. Do you see that? My own brother has come to bury me.
Abigail: You ready?
Chad: As I’ll ever be. Uh, there’s something I want you to know before I testify–
Barnes: Mr. Dimera, the court is waiting. If you would take the stand, please?
Kayla: I-I can’t– I can’t do this.
Steve: What’s wrong?
Kayla: I just–I just can’t– I just can’t be kissing you in a nun’s outfit. It’s sacrilege!
Steve: Oh, come on! If we were a real priest and nun, I would understand, but come on. Come here. Come on, baby.
Kayla: Mm, ugh.
Steve: Not happening?
Kayla: It’s just– this is weird.
Steve: [Sighs] Okay. Not that I expect you to defer to me on this, but is there any reason you can’t go and get into something more comfortable? Doesn’t make you feel ke you’re being blasphemous and sacrilegious, hmm?
Kayla: I think I could manage that.
Kayla: And it’d be good, too, because then I wouldn’t have to do a whole slew of hail marys or anything like that for kissing in a nun’s outfit.
Steve: Yeah, yeah.
Kayla: I’ll be right back. Okay.
Ava: Kristen, what are you talking about? Of course I didn’t sic steve on you.
Kristen: Then why did he and kayla show up here tonight?
Ava: Where’s here?
Kristen: [Groans] It doesn’t matter. Just answer the question.
Ava: Well, I-I-I don’t know. All right? Although…
Ava: Well, I know that xander wanted to hire steve to find sarah horton. I thought he turned him down, but I don’t know, maybe he took the case after all.
Kristen: Sarah horton? Damn it. It’s the last thing I need right now is that little caper coming to haunt me. Is there anything else?
Ava: Nothing. Except that gwen is desperate to get xander off sarah’s trail. She’s convinced that if he finds his ex, that he’s gonna leave her.
Kristen: Yeah. I know exactly how that feels.
Xander: Well, no matter my feelings about charlie, it was very kind of you to offer your condolences to ava.
Gwen: Well, she lost a child. I know what that feels like.
Xander: That big heart of yours.
Gwen: Shh. Don’t need to tell anyone.
[Sighs] So what happened with abigail? Did the intrepid reporter have a lot of information? Seems like she didn’t since you’re back already.
Xander: Well, actually, uh, she came up with a pretty strong lead. Might be just a matter of time until we track down sarah.
Ava: Gwen is devastated by the idea of losing xander when they’ve been so happy. You still there?
Kristen: Yes, I’m still here. And since you and gwen helped me, I’m gonna help you in return.
Kristen: You’ll find out.
Shawn: Do you think that ava is framing you? Your girlfriend?
Rafe: It’s just, uh, a gut feeling.
Shawn: You guys having problems?
Rafe: Well, there’s a jealousy issue. She’s not comfortable with my– my friendship with nicole.
Shawn: What do you mean? I mean, you and nicole have been friends for years. I mean, assuming that is all that it is, right?
Rafe: No, no, no, that’s all it is, it’s just, yeah. We’re just friends. Just, uh, ava can get worked up.
Shawn: Vitalis tend to do that.
Rafe: Yeah, and I also made the mistake of accusing her of killing duke.
Shawn: Oh, wow. How’d she respond to that?
Rafe: Not well, no. She was very upset and insisted I apologize, and then I felt like a jerk for, uh, having accused her of that.
Shawn: So now you’re circling back around?
Rafe: Yeah, I don’t know. I don’t–you know, maybe it’s just my imagination running wild, but..
[Sighs] You know, it–maybe ava did tear the head off of duke, you know? But for her to send those perps after me? I mean, she could ruin my entire career.
Shawn: Okay, ava vitali is not exactly known for playing nice, rafe.
Rafe: I know that, okay? But her history is–I mean, she’s talking about turning over a new life, being a new person. I just–I can’T…
[Sighs] I just, I can’t imagine that she would wanna destroy me.
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you god?
Chad: Maybe I should tell them that it was lucas who kidnapped sami. Which is why I had no problem getting him fired, but letting him rot in prison for something he didn’t do? That’s-that’s too much!
Kate: If you tell the truth, lucas is going to be in that prison.
Chad: I do.
Barnes: Your witness, ms. Trask.
Melinda: [Clears throat]
