Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Nicole: [Grunts] Oh, my gosh, what is this made of, oak? Damn it!
Rafe: Need a hand? Mind if I ask what you’re doing?
Kayla: Must have a roster or something or a softball team photo.
Mother superior: Sister? May I ask just what you’re doing?
Steve: Yeah, brady? Listen, kayla’s on the inside. I really hope she’s okay in there. Right, I’ll keep you posted.
Kristen: Kayla will be just fine, father nichols.
Kristen: See, you’re the one who needs to pray for absolution.
Steve: Whoa, hold on.
Kristen: It is time you were given your last rites, patch. Are you having a moment of déj vu?
Steve: Is that what this is?
Kristen: Well, you caught me off guard, uh, at marlena’s all those months ago, so I’m just returning the favor.
Abigail: We just have a few questions about a flight that you took last march. Um, do you happen to remember flying this woman out of salem?
Xander: Her name is sarah horton.
Ned: Pretty girl. Definitely not a face you’d ever forget.
Gwen: Ava, where the hell are you? I need your help. It turns out that abigail is not going to rest until she finds sarah, and when she does, it means it’s only a matter of time until I lose xander. Please, please, phone me back. Phone me back.
[Knocking on door] Coming.
Sarah: In the flesh.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Steve: You’re right. It has been a while. So, how have you been?
Kristen: Oh… well, I’ve been a little rankled, truth be told. So, I think it would be a very good idea if you try hard not to irritate me anymore than you already have.
Steve: Is it okay if I sit down?
Kristen: No. Instead of worrying about sister mary elizabeth’s safety, you should really be careful yourself.
Steve: I can see that now.
Kristen: Wow. [Laughs] Xander really wasted his money.
Steve: What’s he got to do with this?
Kristen: He hired you to find me…
Kristen: And sadly, the only thing that anyone’s gonna find is a dead one-eyed priest.
Steve: No, no, no, no. Hang on, hang on. Xander did not hire me. So, you see, this is all one big misunderstanding.
Xander: So, you’re saying you do remember her?
Ned: No, I said she’s pretty. Look, I–I’ve flown so many people over the years. Just after a while, they turn into blurs.
Abigail: Okay, ned, well, allow me to de-blur this particular flight for you. It took place last spring, right before you abruptly quit your very lucrative job at dimera without even bothering to pick up your last check.
Ned: How did you–
Xander: How does she know that? That’s a good question. Abigail, you do seem to know rather a lot of information about this guy.
Abigail: Well, I do happen to be an investigative reporter, and coincidentally–well, coincidentally, my husband happens to be the ceo of dimera. So, I don’t have a lot of information, sort of just scratching the surface, but even though I haven’t begun to dig deeply, I do know I can find out everything there is to know about this particular flight, including who financed it and who profited.
Xander: Very impressive. So, um, sir, perhaps you’d like to take another look at this photo, and just concentrate a little bit harder this time?
Ned: Can I get a drink?
Xander: You’re not flying in the next eight hours, are you?
Xander: Name your poison.
Ned: Beer me.
Xander: Waitress, can I get a beer for my mate? Cheers.
Abigail: I’m gonna ask you again, do you recognize that woman?
Ned: Now that I–I think of it, she does look a little familiar.
Gwen: I don’t understand, how–how are you here?
Sarah: Oh, well, I called the front desk and asked for xander cook’s room number. They were really quite accommodating.
Gwen: I–I didn’t–I didn’t mean that.
Sarah: Oh, you meant, how did I get off the desert island that kristen dimera stashed me on when I threatened to tell the cops that she was masquerading as susan banks? Which you already knew, because that’s what kristen was using to blackmail you into helping her escape.
Gwen: Sarah, I–I…
Sarah: I didn’T.
Sarah: Sarah horton’s still very much on that island.
Gwen: I–I–I don’t understand.
Sarah: [Chuckles] Sorry, I forgot.
Gwen: What on earth are you doing?
Ava: Relax. Gwen, it’s just me. This is the sound of nature breathing.
Mother superior: If you’re looking for something, all you had to do was ask.
Kayla: Well, I didn’t wanna bother you. I–I was looking for a bible. I’ve misplaced mine.
Mother superior: Well, isn’t that, uh, bible right there in front of you?
Kayla: Oh! So it is.
[Chuckles] My husband always tells me i need to get glasses, I’m so nearsighted.
Mother superior: Your husband?
Kristen: Don’t be cute, and don’t lie to me.
Steve: Well, guess the cute thing is out of my control, but I’m not lying. I’m not working for xander. He did try to hire me, but not to find you. He wanted me to track down sarah horton.
Kristen: The runaway bride?
Steve: Yeah. Unless you think that my finding her would lead to you.
Nicole: What is it look like I’m doing? I’m trying to get this conference table out of here. I don’t even think you and i could get it out of here. You know what, I don’t even think the buccaneers offensive line could get it out of here.
[Grunts, sighs] And as you could imagine, it reminds me of something that i don’t–I don’t wanna remember. Something that should have never happened.
Rafe: I get it.
Nicole: Speaking of things that shouldn’t happen, what are you doing here?
Ava: You got any, uh, oh, lotion? This thing kinda chafed my neck.
Gwen: What in the actual hell? Ava, what is going on here?
Ava: [Chuckles] It was pretty mean, I know, I’m sorry. I just–I couldn’t resist. You should’ve seen your face.
Gwen: What is that thing?
Ava: Isn’t it obvious? It’s a sarah mask. Yeah, kristen sent it to me this morning.
Gwen: Why on earth would she send you that thing?
Ava: Well, she called me the other day, and apparently steve is looking for her, and she wanted to know if I sicced him on her.
Gwen: Steve’s found her?
Ava: No, no, no, no, and he won’t, not if kristen has anything to say about it.
Gwen: Okay, I still–I still don’t understand, why would kristen send you that mask?
Ava: Well, I–I told her that I had nothing to do with steve looking for her and that you and I do not want her found anymore than she wants to be found.
Gwen: [Sighs] Yeah, well, i would say that that’s obvious.
Ava: And I did end up admitting that xander had gone to steve.
Gwen: Yeah, but steve turned xander down. I told you that.
Ava: Maybe he changed his mind. Who knows. Anyway, I also told kristen that you were freaking out, because xander’s looking for sarah, and since we helped her break out of jail, she decided to return the favor and help us out.
Gwen: Not to mention the fact that she doesn’t want sarah found.
Ava: Yeah, well–[Chuckles]– That’s our kristen, isn’t it? Anyway, this showed up at my door. I think it’s the answer to your prayers.
Ned: [Exhales] Hits the spot.
Xander: You say you recognize this woman? That’s ’cause she’s the person that you flew out of town on the dimera jet.
Ned: I suppose it’s possible.
Abigail: No one has heard from this woman in nearly a year, so we’re going to need a little more than it’s possible. Surely you have some recollection of who was on that flight.
Xander: Hey, she’s in trouble, big trouble, and we– we have to help her. Did you fly this woman or not?
Ned: Yeah. I did.
My asthma felt anything but normal.
Rafe: Listen, I don’t mean to bother you, okay? It’s just that something has come up at work.
Nicole: Oh, so, you wanna talk to me about police business? Shouldn’t you be talking to, I don’t know, this is just off the top of my head, but another cop?
Rafe: Uh, no, because it actually involves you.
Nicole: Me? What? How? Why?
Rafe: The other day, trask came to me with two different files, okay? Two different files that had the exact same complaint that I had planted evidence to make an arrest, and I think that there is more than a good chance that someone put them up to it.
Nicole: Damn it, rafe, i would never do that to you.
Rafe: No, I didn’t say you. I don’t think that it was you.
Nicole: Okay, but you said it had something to do with me.
Rafe: Yes, I did, because i think it was ava… because of us.
Ava: It’s pretty good, right?
Gwen: It’s a bit creepy. Uh…how is this supposed to be the answer to my prayers?
Ava: Well, kristen put a note in with the mask. And first, I need you to know that there were some pretty intense threats about what would happen to us if, uh, she was found.
Gwen: Why? We–we–we–we don’t want anybody to find sarah.
Ava: Yeah, that’s just kristen being kristen. You know, a letters not a letter without some threats. Anyway, she sent it so you could use it to get xander to stop looking for sarah.
Ava: Yeah. Who else? You put the mask on, you go to xander, you tell him that you, sarah, don’t want anything to do with him anymore, and he needs to stop looking for you, and then bing, bang, boom, problem solved. He never wants to lay eyes on sarah again.
Abigail: So, sarah hired you to fly her on a dimera jet?
Ned: She approached me at the hangar, said she heard some of us pilots took on freelance gigs from time to time. She needed somebody to fly her out of salem.
Abigail: On a dimera jet?
Ned: Uh, I’m not the only one who does it, mrs. Dimera.
Abigail: I’m here for “the spectator,” not dimera enterprises. And so, you agreed?
Ned: I said I would do it for the right price. She definitely had the money. I can see how much she must have spent on her clothes.
Abigail: Are you an expert in couture?
Ned: Uh, no, luggage. I saw the size of the suitcase she had. I have never seen such a tiny woman with such a big suitcase.
Xander: Forget the luggage. Where’d you take her?
Ned: Can’t tell you that.
Xander: Why not?
Ned: It’s part of the deal. Look, I didn’t have to tell you that I flew her in the first place. I did it ’cause you said that she might be in danger.
Xander: She is, and if you don’t tell us where she is, we can’t help her.
Ned: Sorry I can’t be more forthcoming. But I get paid to be discreet. But I could also get paid to be indiscreet. So, if you wanna know where i took her, have to cough up some cash. And I don’t take checks.
[Soft instrumental music]
Kristen: If you were looking for sarah, there’s no way that would lead you to me.
Steve: Although, you know how they say that all roads lead to rome? In the past, a whole lot of mysterious disappearances have led to you.
Kristen: Oh, please. Use your head. Sarah went through hell, and she still gave me my baby back. Heck, we’re almost like sisters. So, why would I wanna disappear sarah horton?
Steve: God only knows why you do anything.
Kristen: Wow. May I remind you I have a gun?
Steve: Okay, that hasn’t slipped my mind, okay, but now that we have cleared up that I’m not working for xander, he’s not looking for you, why don’t you put the damn thing down?
Kristen: Because I still want answers, and if you are not working on xander’s behalf, then why are you here, hm? There’s not exactly a roman holiday for you and the misses to dress as clergy and her cloistered and you sleeping single in a double bed. No, I think–I think that you came here to flush me out of the convent, my spiritual home.
Steve: Your spiritual home when you’re facing prison time.
Kristen: Wow. Again, the gun, hm?
Who paid you to come after me?
Kristen: I mean it.
Kristen: Why in the name of god would brady do that?
Steve: Because he wants to know if you’re the one who framed him for philip’s disappearance.
Kayla: Uh, did I say husband? I did, didn’t I? Did I say husband?
Mother superior: Yes, you did. I know some would say we’re a liberal order, but we still draw the line at husbands.
Kayla: I can explain.
Mother superior: I’m all ears.
Kayla: Um, you see, I–I come from a–a very strong irish-american family, and we take the teachings of the church quite literally. So, as I am a bride of christ, that would make him my husband, wouldn’t it?
Mother superior: A husband who nags you about glasses?
Kayla: Well, he talks to me about all my problems. He’s sort of like–like–like joan of arc.
Mother superior: And look how she ended up.
Kayla: A saint. She ended up a saint.
Mother superior: Uh, what we all aspire to. So, take the bible.
Kayla: Thank you, reverend mother.
Mother superior: And one last question, how are you going to read it given that you’re so nearsighted that you didn’t see it right there in front of you?
Kayla: Uh, well, I don’t–i don’t need to read it. I–I find comfort in its physical presence.
Mother superior: If it means that much to you, you–you must have–have all the important passages memorized.
Kayla: A lot of them, yeah.
Mother superior: Then how about you recite one for me?
Kayla: Um, I would be happy to, but I’m not sure I have them verbatim, and you shouldn’t improvise the word of god, should you?
Mother superior: Well, it’s all in translation, unless you memorized it in the original hebrew or aramaic.
Kayla: No, I never–never got the time for that.
Mother superior: So, just give it your best shot. [Laughs] I’m sure he’ll forgive you if you stumble over a word or two. He did say, “judge not lest he be judged.” Matthew 7, one through three.
Kayla: Um, well, uh, the christmas story’s always been one of my favorites. And, um, it came to pass that–
Mother superior: Lovely of course, but not, I feel, relevant to your situation. How about deuteronomy 31, 6? How does that go again?
Kristen: You’re telling me that someone made it look like brady killed philip?
Steve: And they think that someone is you.
Kristen: Why would I do something like that to brady? He’s rachel’s father.
Steve: Yes, he’s also the man you loved who had the temerity to choose chloe over you.
Kristen: Uh, so what, to that end, I–I knocked him out and covered him in blood and then i left a weapon at the crime scene?
Steve: Uh, you have to admit, your plans, uh, tend to be a little serpentine.
Kristen: Right, but they’re always in my best interest. There’s no way I would ever send brady to prison for murder. I love him.
Steve: So, you’re telling me you don’t wanna get back at him and chloe for whatever it is you think they’re doing?
Kristen: I’ll admit it bothered me. Once again, that cow had her talons in him.
Steve: Mixed metaphors.
Kristen: Mm. And I wouldn’t have thought twice about framing chloe. But if you think I’d ever send brady to prison, then you don’t know me at all.
Steve: So, you didn’t kill philip?
Kristen: No, I did not kill philip.
Steve: All right then. No harm, no foul. I’ll report back to brady that this was a dead end and that we’re even. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
Kristen: It’s a little late for that, don’t you think?
Nicole: Don’t you think you’re being a little paranoid here thinking that ava is setting you up? We both know how much she loves you.
Rafe: She loved steve too. Look how that turned out.
Nicole: Is there something you’re not telling me?
Rafe: No, no, no, I have– there’s nothing concrete. It’s just I–I get this weird feeling that something is off.
Nicole: Well, I’d say framing you as a dirty cop is a little more than just off.
Rafe: Okay, nicole, think about–I mean, think about it, ava, she’s–she’s got the underworld connections to make it all happen, and I’ve–I’ve had this feeling before. I had this exact same feeling when I thought that she had decapitated duke.
Rafe: Wait, you think ava did that? No, come on, that–that doesn’t make any sense.
Nicole: Unless what?
Rafe: Unless she knows what we did on that table.
Ava: So? You’re just gonna stare at it or what?
Gwen: I–I’m just–I’m a bit stunned by the likeness.
Ava: Yeah. It’s impressive as hell, i agree. The ghost of xander’s girlfriend past.
[Chuckles] And the idea that one of those could be made into any one of our faces. Oh, god, I would love, love to get my hands on a nicole mask and then just tell rafe that he is a two-timing jerk and, you know, he can go straight to hell.
Gwen: Okay, can we just stay on topic here? ‘Cause, I mean, what–what– what–what would you have me do with this thing?
Ava: I thought it was obvious. I’d have you wear it.
Gwen: [Sighs] And, I mean, you just wear it and–and I just, what, sort of breathe normally?
Ava: Oh, yeah, yeah. There were no breathing issues. There were no issues at all. Just–just the fun of making mischief.
Gwen: Making mischief?
Gwen: Well, I’d say that that’s a slight understatement with what we are considering doing, don’t you?
Ava: Okay, gwen, do you want xander to leave you? Do you relish the thought of him telling you that, “hey, you know what, I’ve enjoyed your company, and, uh, thank you for the memories,” but you know his true love, the one that, uh–who’s a knockout, has a great career, that perfect bod, she’s back, so, buh-bye and have a nice life. I did not think so. But if, you know–if you’re feeling like you got stage freight and you can’t pull it off, well, then–then don’t worry about it.
Gwen: I didn’t say that.
Ava: Well, you seem awfully skeptical.
Gwen: I’m just–I’m lacking a bit of confidence. You–you really think that I can fool xander?
Ava: Ah, sweetie… there’s only one way to find out. And that is not by sitting around shooting the breeze. Come on, put the damn thing on already? What are you waiting for?
Xander: So, what are you waiting for? Pay the man.
Abigail: Me? Why me?
Xander: You have money. I don’T.
Abigail: [Sighs] Xander, I can’t do it.
Xander: Why? Did chad put you on an allowance or something?
Abigail: No, I’m a journalist. I represent “the spectator.” I can’t pay a source for information. It’s totally unethical.
Xander: Then don’t run the story. I mean, what do you care more about, selling papers or finding your cousin? My asthma felt anything but normal.
Steve: I don’t think it’s too late at all. I’ll just make it clear to brady that you had nothing to do with this.
Kristen: I’m still a wanted woman who broke out of prison. So what, you’re just going to go waltzing back into salem knowing my location? I mean, really? You’re even dumber than i thought you were.
Kayla: Deuteronomy 31-6. Of course. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified of them. For the lord your god goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
Mother superior: You do know your bible.
Kayla: I told you it brings me great comfort.
Mother superior: I’ve always found it to do so. Actually, I–I just came in to get my rosary.
Kayla: Thanks, mom. All the ccd classes really paid off.
Mother superior: I usually keep this drawer locked. Um, thank you for calling my lapse to my attention.
Nicole: [Groans] You–you think ava knows we slept together.
Rafe: It’s crossed my mind.
Nicole: [Chuckles] Well, wait a minute, this is– this is ava we’re talking about.
Nicole: If she found out, she would’ve been in your face. She doesn’t exactly sit on her feelings.
Rafe: No, you’re right. You’re right, and–and when i told her about the perps, she was completely shocked, and she–she was totally–totally behind me.
Nicole: Okay, that’s a good sign.
Rafe: Yeah. Has she been acting strangely, though? She keeps telling me to invite you over for dinner. I–like, has she done anything weird or–or out of the ordinary?
Nicole: Oh, then now–now that you mention it…
Ava: Come on, gwen. Let’s have a look.
Gwen: So? What do you think? Hey, I thought you said I’d sound just like sarah.
Ava: Don’t get your panties in a bunch. Here. Try this.
Sarah: Do you really think that–oh, my god, it works.
Sarah: I mean, this is what sarah sounds like…
Ava: Exactly. Exactly. So, now you look perfect. You sound perfect. Oh, xander’s gonna be completely taken in.
Sarah: I don’t know, I–I’m not so sure.
Ava: Well, I fooled you, didn’t I?
Sarah: Yeah, but I don’t know sarah. Xander knows everything about her.
Ava: So did rex, and kristen fooled them both.
Sarah: Yeah, but kristen knows sarah. I’m flying blind here. I don’t think I can fool anyone, let alone xander.
Ava: [Mumbles] Maybe you need to take a test run.
Abigail: This is not about selling papers. I–whether I run this story or not, I can’t give a source money.
Xander: Are you serious? You’re gonna let our only lead on sarah slip through your fingers, because what, it’s unethical?
Abigail: Okay, first of all, I’m not really sure how reliable this lead is…
Abigail: Um, and second of all, I–it’s not about ethics. If anybody found out that I paid for information, whether I run the story or not, it could totally compromise “the spectator.” My folks left me in charge of the paper, and last thing i wanna do is run it into the ground just a few weeks after they’ve left town.
Xander: We both know I don’t have the money.
Ned: Okay, well, thanks for the beer.
Xander: Oh, no, no, yeah, you, uh–I’ll get it. I’ll, uh–I’ll get the money. You just keep him here.
Abigail: Where are you going?
Xander: To the first national bank of kiriakis.
It’s my 4:05, the-show-must-go-on,
Maggie: Mmm. Henderson, I love this tea! What is it?
Sarah: I don’t know. I’m not henderson.
Maggie: Oh, my god. Sarah?
Maggie: I can’t believe– I can’t believe it’s you.
Sarah: Me either.
Steve: If you think that I’ll tell everyone where I found you, then there’s an easy fix.
Kristen: So, finally we both can agree.
Steve: Just move on. Take off. Find a convent in, uh, outer mongolia or somewhere.
Kristen: [Laughs] Mongolia, right. You–you think I should move?
Steve: Kristen, you’ve got safehouses all over the place where you can hide out. And I swear I won’t follow you. I got some zip ties here in this drawer.
Kristen: Ooh. [Gasps] Are we looking for this? Huh? Yeah, see, I was here before, and that’s the first place i looked. Wow, for a P.I., You are very predictable.
[Tongue clicks] So, now I think it’s time for my easy fix.
Rafe: Nicole… ni–nicole, what is it? Hey, did ava say something to you?
Nicole: No, no. But it’s just like you were saying, I–I just got this weird feeling.
Nicole: The other day at the square, I–I saw you and ava together. You were hugging.
Rafe: Wait, you were– I didn’t see you.
Nicole: I know. But I think ava saw me. And she smiled at me, but it wasn’t a friendly smile. It was more knowing, like she was in on a secret. And afterward, I just felt very unsettled.
[Knocking on door]
Ava: Hey, nicole, you busy? I was just thinking that–oh… rafe, what a surprise.
Rafe: Yeah, I was just talking about you.
Ava: Yeah, you know, this is great, because now I don’t have to track you down too.
Maggie: Oh, honey. Do you know what a relief it is to see you?
Sarah: I’m sorry I worried you.
Maggie: Why the radio silence? I mean, all this time we thought you were with rex, but when he showed up and he said you hadn’t left town with him, oh, honey, I mean, that was weeks and weeks ago. Ever since, I’ve been–I’ve been calling. Do you know that your phone is disconnected?
Sarah: I–I know, and I can explain.
Maggie: Okay… I’m listening.
Rafe: Track us down? What is that supposed to mean?
Ava: Well, it means that what I have to say concerns the three of us, and the two of you are so high-powered and important, you don’t answer your phones and you don’t return calls. So, if I want to speak to either one of you, I have to track you down and talk to you face to face. And don’t argue with me about that, because I was just here the other day trying to invite you over for dinner, and I knew then if it was gonna happen at all, I’d practically have to tie you down just to get you to agree to a date.
Nicole: It’s just that I–
Ava: No, no, no, no, no, I know, I know, I know. It’s okay. You’re so busy. I get that from him too, all the time. So, no more arguments, okay? The three of us are having dinner together at casa hernandez tonight.
Nicole: Oh, I–I don’t know, ’cause I–
Ava: No, no! [Rolls tongue] No, no, no, no. I am not listening to anymore excuses from either one of you. Make it happen, or you’ll incur the wrath of ava vitali. Seriously? The two of you have been moping around here like a couple of sad sacks. It’s really time the two of you just had some fun.
Nicole: Yeah. Okay.
Mother superior: Here you are, my dear.
Kayla: Thank you, mother.
Mother superior: Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go talk to sister marguerite about choir practice. But I’ll see you at dinner.
Mother superior: Good. You can lead the evening prayers.
Kayla: “Steve, just had a close call. Still looking for kristen.”
[Phone beeping] Okay, good.
Kristen: “Keep me posted, sweetness.”
Abigail: You know, you could make this a lot easier if you’d just tell us where you took sarah.
Ned: Easier for you. Uh, I’ll be back in an hour.
Abigail: Where are you going?
Ned: Stretch my legs. Maybe look for a new watch to buy with all that money I’m gonna earn.
Sarah: I’m sorry that i wasn’t completely honest with you. I would have told you everything if it hadn’t been for xander.
Maggie: So, you pretended to leave town with rex because of xander?
Sarah: He didn’t leave me a choice. I tried to break off the engagement, but he didn’t believe me.
Maggie: As I see it, you didn’t–you didn’t call off the engagement. You called off the wedding, at almost the last possible moment.
Sarah: Just…I wanted xander out of my life, and I had to make sure that he wouldn’t try to follow me.
Maggie: [Sighs] You were that desperate to get away from him? Why?
Sarah: You know, I don’t– I don’t wanna get into it right now, but let’s just say if i never see xander again, it will be too soon.
Xander: Maggie, I have a favor to ask.
