Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Rafe: You know, the more i think about it, the more it makes sense. Ava didn’t tell me where she was or what she was up to. Maybe nothing came up. Maybe she was just planning on walking through that door in the hope of seeing…
Nicole: Seeing what?
[Dramatic electronic music]
Ned: How’d your meeting go? Oh. By the looks of things, not too well.
Xander: I’m sorry; did you want something?
Ned: Obviously. I want my money.
Chad: Abby, what’s going on? Where are you? Johnny said–
[Doorbell rings] Belle.
Belle: Hey. I’m sorry to just show up without calling, but I wanted to pick up some toiletries for ej.
Chad: Oh, what, the shampoo in the lockup isn’t good enough for my brother?
Belle: I thought he would appreciate having some of his own things. Would you mind getting it for me?
Chad: Yeah, no, I’m not doing anything to help ej, not after what he did to my wife.
Belle: What did he do to abigail?
Abigail: I knew it! I knew it was… you? Ava vitali? What the hell?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Belle: Ej did what?
Chad: He forced himself on my wife.
Belle: Are you sure?
Chad: Uh, yes, I’m sure. I saw him with my own eyes.
Belle: Where did this happen?
Chad: At the courthouse during the recess that the judge gave because of that coughing fit or whatever the hell it was. You remember–I ran into you in the hallway? We were about to walk inside, and then I had realized that i forgot my phone in the witness room, so I went to go get it, and there’s ej, attacking my wife.
Belle: What did he say when you walked in?
Chad: Well, after abigail slapped him across the face, I asked him what the hell he thought he was doing, and he wasn’t even the least bit apologetic. Just sat there, staring at me, smug as ever.
Belle: Oh, my god. I–I just can’t believe he would do something so disgusting.
Chad: I was gonna kill him. Abby asked me not to.
Belle: You know what? It really doesn’t make sense, though, because, I mean, you were about to get back on the stand, and you made it pretty clear that we would be pleased with your testimony, so why would ej sabotage himself like that?
Chad: Because ej is an arrogant bastard who thinks he can do whatever he wants, not to mention an entitled pig that thinks he can help himself to whatever he wants. Do you know what he said to my wife? He said that he was gonna take her on the conference table. Take her.
Chad: I mean, who knows what would’ve happened if I hadn’t shown up when I did?
Belle: God, well, no wonder you were so mad when you came back from that recess.
Chad: Yeah, well, he’s gonna be spending the next decade in prison, so maybe he’ll learn to keep his hands to himself.
Belle: I am so, so sorry for what abigail had to go through. I mean, there is no excuse for ej’s behavior. But he is still my client, and so if you could just point me to the bathroom, I’ll grab the stuff and go.
Melinda: Ah, mr. Dimera. We meet again. You’re looking a little bit, um, defeated.
Shawn: Look, we’d love to stay and chat, da trask, but ej’s got somewhere he needs to be.
Melinda: Oh, the only place he should be is downstairs, awaiting sentencing.
Shawn: He’s meeting with his lawyer.
Melinda: I hope not to discuss an appeal.
Ej: That’s between me and my attorney.
Melinda: Well, it’s your money, but I should warn you: It’s a waste of time.
Ej: We’ll see.
Melinda: You are so damn arrogant. All of you dimeras are. For years, I’ve tried to take one of you down, but you always seem to slither out of trouble. But at last, all my hard work has paid off, and I get the distinct pleasure of sending one of your kind directly where you belong: Statesville prison.
Xander: Your money?
Ned: Yeah, that’s where you’re headed, right? After the meeting I had with you and abigail dimera earlier today? You went to procure payment for our little exchange? You remember? Last spring, sarah horton needed somebody to fly her out of salem. I’m the guy who did the job. I told you I would tell you, but it was gonna cost you.
Xander: Yeah, right. Hi, ted.
Ned: Ned. Ned grainger.
Xander: I’ve got a lot on my mind now, so if you’ll excuse me, I–
Ned: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you trying to pull?
Xander: I’m not sure what you mean.
Ned: You and mrs. Dimera were very anxious to get information out of me. You told me to sit tight, and you’d get my cash. Now it seems like you forgot the whole thing.
Xander: I didn’t forget. I went to ask sarah’s mum for the money.
Ned: So let’s have it. She did give it to you, didn’t she?
Xander: Actually, I didn’t get a chance to ask.
Ned: Well, I sure hope you have some other means of funds, because I’m not gonna tell you squat unless I get paid.
Xander: I don’t need you to tell me where you took sarah. I already found her myself.
Abigail: You’re the person who’s been wearing this mask? I–I mean, I knew it wasn’t really sarah, but I just thought the person masquerading as her was kristen or gwen. I never would’ve guessed that it was you.
Abigail: This just doesn’t make sense. I mean, do you even know who sarah is? What reason do you have to be impersonating her? What are you doing, ava? Why are you doing this?

Xander: Sarah was at her mother’s house when I arrived.
Xander: So I know where she is. Obviously, I don’t need you to tell me.
Ned: We had a deal.
Xander: Yeah, the deal’s off.
Ned: I was counting on that money. I just bought a watch. Cost me a small fortune.
Xander: Well, I guess you’re gonna have to take it back, eh?
Ned: I can’T.
Xander: Why not? Still in the box. You haven’t worn it, have you?
Ned: No, but I can’t take it back. I love this watch!
Xander: Unfortunately, ned, sometimes, no matter how much we love something, we still end up losing it.
Melinda: Mrs. Brady. I heard you had a meeting with your client.
Belle: Ej was supposed to be brought up from holding.
Melinda: No need to file a complaint. Your hubby already brought him to the interrogation room. I’ll tell you what I already told mr. Dimera. This meeting is a waste of time.
Belle: Thanks for the input.
Melinda: He was found guilty, all right? And considering all the damning testimony against him, I don’t see how you’ll convince a judge to come to any other conclusion.
Belle: Why don’t you let me worry about that?
Melinda: Ooh, you must really be kicking yourself, huh, for letting him take the stand like that?
Belle: [Scoffs] Excuse me?
Melinda: Any first-year law student knows that a defense attorney never lets their client testify unless it’s absolutely necessary. I mean, whoo, when you opened that door for me, I was thrilled… but I was also shocked, because someone with your experience to make a rookie mistake like that? You must be mortified.
Shawn: Oh, let me guess. Our esteemed da is doing a little preening.
Belle: Oh, no, she’s just showing me all her insecurities. She’s a little nervous that I’m meeting with ej.
Melinda: [Laughs] I have nothing to be insecure or nervous about. I won.
Shawn: And is this the part where you say that you’re way more of a force than belle in the courtroom and that you’re a better attorney because you’re so damn tough?
Melinda: Seems like a reasonable position, considering someone has to have her husband fight her battles for her.
Belle: Oh, please.
Shawn: Listen, I can assure you that my wife is more than capable of defending herself.
Melinda: Yet here you are, riding to her rescue.
Shawn: Not at all. Actually, I just know that she’s had a really busy last few days, and I just wanted to give her a little break.
Nicole: Rafe… we have to stop.
Rafe: Yeah, I’m sorry. I s–I shouldn’t have done that. I…
Nicole: It’s okay. Obviously, I wanted to kiss you, too. But we can’t do this. You are with ava.
Rafe: I’m with ava. I know, I know. I’m sorry, and I don’T… I don’t know what I was thinking. I guess I just let my frustration get the best of me.
Nicole: Frustration because you don’t know if your girlfriend is playing you?
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, like I said, ava’s been– she been acting weird the last few weeks, and–I don’t know. Maybe I’m just being paranoid because I feel guilty.
Nicole: Because we had sex behind her back.
Rafe: Which I still don’t understand how she would know about.
Nicole: She might not. She’s been pushing for the three of us to spend time together.
Rafe: Yeah, and what’s the end game with that?
Nicole: Being able to spend time with her friend and her boyfriend without being all weird.
Rafe: Uh-huh, right. Is it? Is it, or is she just playing nice? Meanwhile, she’s on a revenge rampage. Right? Started with her cutting the head off of duke, and then she’s setting me up to look like a dirty cop, and you said the other day that she was acting weird in your office.
Nicole: I know. No, but maybe–maybe I’m being paranoid too.
Rafe: Uh-huh, yeah? Okay, what about tonight, huh? What about that? She insists that we all have dinner? She’s not even here.
Nicole: Something came up.
Rafe: Did it? Did it, or is she just leaving us alone in the hopes to catch us doing something?
Nicole: Rafe, ava is my friend, and I would like to give her the benefit of the doubt, that if she knew what happened between us, she would be direct. But honestly, I don’t know. I don’t know.
Rafe: Yeah. So I guess I got tired of waiting for the other shoe to drop and took action. Let the chips fall where they may.
Nicole: I got it. I feel the same way.
Rafe: I don’t like being tested. And I don’t like playing games.
Nicole: Maybe that’s not what’s happening. For all we know, ava could be completely innocent.
Abigail: Let’s hear it, ava. Why are you running around town in a sarah horton mask? Why are you impersonating my cousin?
Ava: Eh. It was a prank.
Abigail: A prank.
Ava: Yeah. You know, just having a little harmless fun.
Abigail: Harmless? Are you joking? It’s bizarre, and it’s twisted, and it’s evil.
Ava: Oh, okay. Well, not all of us have lives as exciting as yours, abigail, so every once in a while, I like to spice things up.
Abigail: Do you seriously expect me to believe that? Okay, fine. Let’s see if you can come up with another explanation here for your boyfriend, the police commissioner, hmm. Let’s see if he’s available.
Ava: Abigail, you don’t have to do that.
Abigail: Oh, I think I do. What am I supposed to do, just let you walk away–
For rob, it took years to find out
[Soft guitar music]
Shawn: If you’re here to gloat to my wife some more, I can give you a call as soon as she’s done with ej.
Melinda: I actually need to talk to you… about your boss.
Shawn: Rafe? Why, what’s going on?
Melinda: He’s under investigation for planting evidence in several cases.
Shawn: Uh, two cases, and it’s obvious that those perps are lying, so the whole thing is a joke.
Melinda: I don’t think so, and neither does internal affairs. They take police corruption very seriously.
Shawn: Come on. There’s no way that you can believe that rafe is corrupt.
Melinda: My opinion is irrelevant. But when these allegations are made, I have no choice but to investigate.
Shawn: And you’re gonna come up empty-handed, ’cause rafe’s record is spotless. What, all a sudden, what, he’s a dirty cop now? Why would he do that?
Melinda: My guess: Pressure. Under his leadership, this department has become a complete laughingstock.
Shawn: Oh, all right, you know what? I would not go that far. We’ve hit a few speed bumps here and there, but that’s about it.
Melinda: I read about it every day, how crime is up because salem pd won’t do anything to put the bad guys away. I think rafe needed to turn the heat down by any means necessary.
Shawn: He would not manufacture convictions. There’s no way that he would do this, because he’s a good cop, and he’s a good man.
Rafe: You’re right. Ava might be innocent in all of this. She might not be setting me up to look like a crooked cop. But what I’ve come to realize is… it doesn’t matter.
Nicole: You don’t care if ava’s trying to ruin your career?
Rafe: No, of course I do. Yeah, it’s just, whether she is innocent or not, it doesn’t change the way I feel about you. I can’t get you out of my head or my heart. I’m just thinking I need to– I need to end things with ava.
Nicole: Are you sure that’s something you really wanna do?
Rafe: Yes. Yes, because whether she is innocent or not, it doesn’t really matter. It’s not working. I mean… we can’t go on like this.
Nicole: Rafe, I don’T… I–I don’t think this is the best time to make a big decision like this. I think maybe you should wait until things settle down and the investigation is over.
Rafe: Okay, just hear me out. Either ava knows what’s going on, and she is trying to punish us, in which case, obviously, I can’t stay with her…
Nicole: Or she has no idea, and she’s coming from a totally genuine place.
Rafe: And if that’s the case, I still can’t be with her.
Nicole: Why not?
Rafe: Because it’s not fair to keep the woman that I am with in the dark about the woman that I want to be with.
Xander: Gwen? Hmm. Maybe she’s in the shower.
[Knocking at door]
Chad: Hey, is abigail here?
Xander: No. No. Why, what’s going on?
Chad: She ran out of the house, looking for sarah.
Xander: I found her. I just came from uncle vic’S. Sarah turned up there. She went to see maggie… and made it very clear that she’s done with me for good.
Chad: Yeah, can’t say that i blame her.
Xander: Oh, well, this will make you happy. Abigail was investigating sarah’s disappearance for the “spectator,” and I was assisting, but now that sarah’s been found, my partnership with your wife is over. Wait, didn’t she tell you all this?
Chad: Yes, of course she did, but I thought she might’ve come here to see gwen.
Chad: Because she thinks that she doesn’t have the whole story yet. Look, she’s convinced that the woman you found with maggie isn’t the real sarah.
Ava: Gwen, how did you…
Gwen: I heard abigail attacking you over the phone. I figured you might need backup.
Ava: Thanks. Timing was perfect.
Gwen: Yeah, I can see that. So I suppose the jig is up.
Ava: Yeah, your little sis ripped that mask right off my face.
Gwen: Ah, damn it! I thought we’d thrown her off of sarah’s scent for good. What happened?
Ava: Oh, she goes talking about how something kept bothering her, how she knew that I wasn’t really sarah.
Gwen: Can’t believe this. You were right. My sister really is like a dog with a bone, and now that she’s seen you with the sarah mask, she’s never gonna stop looking for sarah. What do we do?
Ava: Treat her the same as you would any dog you can’t control. You put them down.
If you have postmenopausal
Rafe: Breaking up with ava is the right thing to do for all three of us.
Nicole: She will be devastated.
Rafe: And I hate the idea of causing her pain. I do. That’s why I’ve stayed with her for so long. But I need to do this. I need to be honest with her and with myself. I wanna be with you, nicole.
Nicole: [Sighs] Are you sure that’s how you really feel?
Rafe: Yeah. Unless that’s not what you want.
Melinda: I have no interest in your personal feelings about commissioner hernandez.
Shawn: No, it’s not just me. Rafe has the respect of every officer in this department.
Melinda: Okay, being respected, liked, and even loved does not preclude you from having committed a crime. Your sister is married to a serial killer, is she not?
Shawn: Okay, you know, are we done here? Because you know what, I’ve got some work I need to get done.
Melinda: Look, my point is, I’m only interested in the facts, and it sounds like you are, too, which is why I want you to go through every recent arrest that rafe has signed off on with a fine-toothed comb. You know, anything with his signature on it. Just–I want details.
Melinda: Yeah, review every report, page by page. Go talk to the people he’s arrested. See if you can uncover a pattern.
Shawn: Do I have a choice?
Melinda: Not if you don’t want me to think you’re covering for your boss. I’ll even get you started. Top one, perp came in last night. He’s still down in lockup. Why don’t you go down there, have a little chat with him, and see what you can find out?
[Melancholy guitar music]
Ej: Ow. Where the hell are you, belle? Oh, finally.
Belle: I would have been here sooner, but I had to get this logged. Your toiletries.
Ej: Thank god. I don’t know how I’d survive another night without my shea butter moisturizer. That was a joke.
Belle: Yeah, I’m not really in the mood.
Ej: Right. So shall we get down to business? What news of my appeal? What’s your plan to stop me from spending the next decade behind bars?
Belle: Before we get to any of that, I think there’s something you and I need to talk about.
Ej: Sounds serious.
Belle: It is. I just talked to chad. He told me what you did to abigail.
Xander: So let me get this straight. Abigail thought it wasn’t really sarah that I saw at uncle vic’s? It was someone in a sarah mask.
Chad: Yes. At first, abigail thought it was kristen because she had done the exact same thing to kate.
Xander: Right, right, that makes sense. Wait, what does this have to do with gwen?
Chad: Well, it wasn’t kristen, so abigail thought it was gwen.
Xander: I–I don’t get it. Why exactly?
Chad: Who has a motive to pose as sarah, right? Hey, think about it, xander. You’re in a relationship with gwen. Now, what happens to that relationship if you find out what really happened to the woman who was your fiancée, the woman who you love very much? So sarah–sorry, fake sarah– shows up, tells you she wants nothing to do with you, and that effectively ends you searching for her.
Xander: So abigail thinks that the woman I saw, the woman who broke my heart for a second time, was actually gwen?
Gwen: Put her down? You C… come on. You can’t be serious.
Ava: It would solve our problems.
Gwen: And it would create loads more for me– no, I’ve already been suspected of two murders in less than a year. I’m not gonna add another one to the list. Plus, she’s my sister!
Gwen: That is not the point. Look, yes, I hate that she’s trying to get payback because i slept with her husband, and i hate that she’s trying to break up xander and I, but I don’t want her dead.
Ava: Okay, but you know we need to think of something, because she was about to call the cops when you knocked her out.
Gwen: Okay, how about, when she points the finger at us, we’ll just say she’s having another one of her delusions?
Ava: No, no, rafe’s never gonna believe that.
Gwen: Well, we’re not gonna know unless we try.
Ava: No. Okay? He thinks I’ve gone legit, and we need to keep it that way. I’ve set all these plans in motion against him, and I’m seeing them through. He needs to pay for cheating on me, sleeping with that slut nicole.
Gwen: Okay, what do you suggest that we do, then?
Ava: No… we could leave her here. No, maybe she won’t remember anything when she wakes up. I mean, you did hit her pretty hard.
Gwen: She’s already seen you in the sarah mask. I’d say that that’s quite difficult to forget, wouldn’t you?
Ava: [Sighs] Okay, then let’s figure out a plan later. Right now, we need to get her out of here.
Gwen: How exactly are we supposed to do that?
Ned: Evening, ladies.
Trelegy for copd.
Nicole: Rafe, it’s just that I’m barely divorced.
Rafe: I understand. I do. So we can take this as slowly as you want. Unless…
Nicole: Unless what
Rafe: Well, you had said that you wanted to get that giant conference table out of your office because it was a reminder of something you wanted to forget.
Nicole: I was trying to forget that we betrayed ava.
Rafe: Okay. But not what happened between us.
Nicole: No. That was pretty unforgettable.
Rafe: Okay. All right, so just to be clear, it’s not that we’re not together because we don’t wanna be, it’s because I’m with someone else.
Nicole: Someone that we care about.
Rafe: Yes. Someone that I want to end the relationship with.
Nicole: Oh, I– rafe, I just want you to really think about this.
Rafe: I have been. I have been for months, and now I finally wanna do something about it. I mean, don’t you? Aren’t you tired of holding back, and wouldn’t it be great to finally be out there with how you really feel? Stop hiding?
[Knocking at door]
[Softly] Oh, my… that?
[Knocking at door]
Nicole: You better get that.
Ej: Chad said I did what?
Belle: He said you kissed abigail.
Ej: [Laughs] That’s insane.
Belle: He said he saw it with his own eyes.
Ej: When? Where?
Belle: At the courthouse, after he had that coughing fit. He said he walked into the witness room and saw you forcing yourself on his wife.
Ej: That’s impossible.
Belle: Well, something happened during the recess that made him furious with you.
Ej: It certainly wasn’t that I hit on abigail.
Belle: Then why the 180? Why would chad suddenly decide not to give testimony that would help us after he just implied that he would?
Ej: Maybe he was never intending to help us. He could’ve been toying with us the whole time.
Belle: No way. That’s not chad.
Ej: I’m telling you, I never left that courtroom.
Belle: You sure about that?
Ej: Absolutely. During that recess, I was with johnny, signing that agreement you advised me against. You were there.
Belle: No, actually, i wasn’T. Johnny asked me to give you some privacy, so I was out in the corridor, trying to find out when we would reconvene.
Ej: Oh. You didn’t see me leave, did you?
Belle: There are other exits. If you left a different way, how would I–
Ej: I didn’t! The only time I left my seat was when you called me up to the witness stand. If you don’t believe me, then ask my son.
Xander: So after abigail realized sarah wasn’t kristen in a mask, she thought she was gwen in a mask?
Chad: Right. Well, until gwen showed up.
Xander: What? Why didn’t you say that in the first place? Obviously, gwen wasn’t impersonating sarah!
Chad: I don’t know! I’m sorry! I–I don’t know what the hell is going on, either. I’m just trying to find my wife.
Xander: Well, did you try calling her?
Chad: Yes, of course I tried calling her. She’s not answering her phone, so I thought she came here following up on something.
Xander: But if abigail knows that gwen wasn’t impersonating sarah, ’cause she just saw them together, why would she come here to follow up?
Chad: Because she is not convinced that it was sarah.
Xander: Even though she’d just seen the proof right in front of her eyes?
Chad: My wife–she’s a reporter, right? She gets these instincts. Right now, she has an instinct that somebody’s running around salem in a mask.
Xander: Are we sure it’s the journalistic instincts talking and not the voices in her head?
Xander: Watch it.
Xander: Mate, look. The mystery is solved. Think you need to tell abigail to let it go.
Chad: I did. We were at home, having a relaxing night. I went to go check on dinner and came back, and she was gone. Johnny said that she flew out of the house, so I assumed she came here.
Xander: Well, she didn’T.
Chad: Great. Let me know if you see her, will you?
Xander: Yeah, sure thing, mate.
Ned: Now this is what I call serendipity.
Ava: Yeah? What are you talking about?
Ned: I overheard your dilemma. Here you are, trying to get rid of this woman, and here I am, about to fly my bird out of dodge.
Gwen: And you’d be willing to take her with you?
Ned: Sure… for a price. As a professional bull-rider
Belle: If you say you never left the courtroom, then why is chad so sure he saw you kissing abigail?
Ej: Isn’t it obvious? He’s lying.
Belle: Why? Why would he do that?
Ej: He’s out to get me, or did you not see him testify to a room full of people that i orchestrated my wife’s kidnapping?
Belle: Ej, before you made a pass at his wife, he was ready to exonerate you.
Ej: For the last time, I did not make a pass at his wife.
Belle: Okay, well, then, for the last time, why would chad say you did, then?
Ej: If you ask me, he’s being eaten alive by guilt.
Ej: For sending me away for something that I didn’t do. Chad knows full well that i wasn’t behind samantha’s kidnapping. He’s conspiring with that moron, lucas horton, to frame me. But if that ever got out, he would be fired from dimera, publicly disgraced, and end up going to prison himself, correct?
Ej: That reality must’ve set in during the recess, and so he decided that he would make sure that the truth would never come to light by giving false testimony that would guarantee i would end up in statesville. And the only way he could live with what he did was to somehow convince himself that I deserve it.
Belle: Hmm. By making up the story that you came on to his wife.
Ej: Chad has been so paranoid for so long about his brothers lusting after abigail, he may have found a reason to see things that aren’t really there.
Belle: Oh, so you’re saying he’s delusional?
Ej: I’m saying he committed a betrayal of the highest order. He doesn’t have the constitution for it, so he found a way to cope. He’s probably not even conscious that he did it.
Belle: Oh, my–now you sound like my mother.
Ej: He came up with something believable, didn’t he? I did take that role in johnny’s movie that involves sex scenes with abigail. It’s not a stretch that I would make a play for her.
Belle: But you didn’T.
Ej: Of course not. But if chad believed I did, then for the next decade, he could tell himself that I’m a low-life and he’s a good guy for doing the right thing.
Ej: Wow, that is very machiavellian of you.
Ej: Have you met my family?
Belle: Okay, well, listen. I seriously doubt that chad subconsciously is trying to alleviate his guilt, but let’s just say he is. Why would abigail go along with that, let him tell everyone that you were forcing yourself on her if it wasn’t true?
Ej: He’s her husband. She’s going to support him, no matter what.
Belle: Oh, god. Listen, ej, I know you’re upset, but what you’re saying is insane.
Ej: It’s the only plausible explanation, because I swear to god, I never laid a finger on abigail.
Ava: How much to fly her out of here?
Ned: I’m afraid I can’t offer much of a discount.
Gwen: Why not?
Ned: Well, I happen to know that’s abigail dimera, and i have to imagine that her very well-connected family is gonna wonder what happened to her.
Ava: Yeah. So what?
Ned: So that makes this a premium job.
Gwen: Meaning what?
Ned: I can’t just dump her in a field the next state over. The resources those people have? They’ll trace it back to me in a heartbeat. To make this lady disappear, really disappear, it takes some effort. It’s gonna cost you. Come on, wheels up in ten minutes, ladies. What’s it gonna be? You want me to fly your problem up, up, and away?
[Suspenseful percussive music]
Shawn: I’m sorry to interrupt your evening.
Nicole: It’s okay. Don’t–don’t worry about it.
Rafe: Uh, come on in, man. What’s up?
Shawn: Well, it’s trask. Right, she asked me to look into some recent arrests.
Rafe: Oh, which ones?
Shawn: All the ones that you signed off on.
Rafe: Okay, great. So let me guess: She wants to go over some cases and see if i have planted evidence.
Nicole: Oh, my god. This–this is ridiculous. Rafe didn’t do anything wrong. He’s c–this is so obvious that he’s being set up.
Shawn: I’m assuming that you two have discussed this.
Nicole: Yes, and this investigation is outrageous.
Shawn: I completely agree with you.
Nicole: So can’t you just go back and tell trask to–
Rafe: Nicole… it’s okay. Mm-hmm? I understand. She wants someone to go over all the cases, and, well, I’m just glad that it’s you.
Shawn: See, I told her that i think that you are completely innocent.
Rafe: Yes, and I am ready to prove my innocence, so whatever it is that you need to do.
Shawn: I spoke to a guy who was arrested last night.
Rafe: Wait, the b&e at the pawn shop down by the docks? Yeah, I signed off on that arrest. It was totally clean.
Shawn: Actually, he’s claiming that the evidence was planted, rafe.
Shawn: Yes, he’s claiming that, whatever the cops found at the scene it wasn’t his, he’s never seen it before, and it was planted there to make him look guilty.
Rafe: Okay, well, it’s a lie, right? I mean, obviously, this is all part of the frame-up. I mean, listen, trask knows that, right?
Shawn: I’m sorry, rafe, but trask actually sent me here to place you under arrest.
Nicole: Oh. Life’s been hard enough.
Melinda: Oh. Where’s your attorney?
Ej: My meeting’s over. I’m waiting for someone to escort me back to holding.
Melinda: Oh, don’t look so glum, mr. Dimera. You’re about to get some company.
Rafe: You’re here to arrest me?
Nicole: Shawn, you can’t do this.
Shawn: Listen, believe me, i do not want to, but I don’t have a choice.
Rafe: Oh, my god.
Ava: Oh, I am so sorry I’m late, but I brought desserts. What’s going on?
Shawn: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights as I’ve read them to you?
[Door lock beeps]
Xander: Oh, I was wondering where you went.
Gwen: Yeah, I just, um… popped out for some window shopping. What have you been up to?
Xander: Chad dimera was just here, telling me this crazy story about a mask. Honestly, I had a hard time believing it.
Gwen: A mask, eh? Tell me all about it.
Chad: Abby, where are you? Why aren’t you picking up?
[Doorbell rings] Abby, hey, look, I’m getting worried. Call me when you get this, okay?
Belle: Hey. I’m sorry to bother you again. Listen, I just saw ej, and i wanted you to know, he adamantly denied making any kind of pass at abigail.
Chad: That’s great. Anyway, belle, I don’t have time for this right now, okay?
Belle: Why? What’s going on?
Chad: I can’t find abigail.
Ned: So glad those ladies coughed up the cash, ’cause this is a lot of work, mrs. Dimera.
