Ciara: Okay now, up a little to the left. All right, now that’s too much. Down a smidge. Just a little bit.

Ben: Ugh.

Ciara: Little bit more.

Ben: Uh. You know, here I was thinking that when we got done with this, maybe we’d actually be able to celebrate valentine’s day. But at this rate, I guess we could just do that tomorrow.

Ciara: Okay, you know what?

Ben: What?

Ciara: I think the painting is perfect.

Ben: Oh, good.

Ciara: Just like you.

[Sentimental music]


Nicole: Ms. Vitali, as always, did a pretty good job of covering her tracks. But not good enough to get past me. She’s going down, mr. Hutchins. So you can either cut a deal and testify against her, or she’s gonna take you down with her because that’s the kind of person she is. So are you gonna walk in that courtroom and perjure yourself? Or are you gonna take advantage of your last chance to save yourself and admit that ava vitali put you up to this?

Ava: I hope you believe me, allie.

Allie: I know you wouldn’t swear on tripp’s life if you didn’t mean it.

Ava: Absolutely not. I love him with all of my heart. As I know you do. And for tripp’s sake, I just– I can’t have you thinking badly of me, especially not tonight, when he’s about to–

Allie: About to what?

Ava: Nothing. No, I shouldn’t– I shouldn’t have said anything.

Allie: Ava, should I be worried about tripp?

Ava: No. No, no, no, no. It’s a good thing. At least I hope you think so.

Allie: Oh, my god. Is tripp going to propose?

Chanel: Are you really proposing tonight?

Tripp: I’ve been wanting to do it for a while, but it’d take me, like, six years to afford a decent ring at my salary.

Chanel: That ring looks a lot more than decent.

Tripp: It was my great-grandmother’S. And it seems like allie’s style, but I’m not sure.

Chanel: Oh, tripp. It’s gorgeous. Allie’s gonna love it.

Tripp: Thanks. I really want it to be special. She deserves that. I just–I’ve never met anyone like her. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s funny, honest. I’m telling you what you already know.

Chanel: Yeah. I hope that didn’t sound like i was rubbing it in, though, after everything you’ve been through with johnny.

Chanel: No, no. I–I know how much you love allie. And it’s not your fault her brother was an ass. Allie did keep warning me about him.

Tripp: Yeah, but I think even allie underestimated how big of an ass he is. I mean, not only did he just treat you like crap, but, I mean, after what happened between you and allie…

Chanel: What happened between me and allie was that… we kissed a couple of times a long time ago. And since then, she has made it totally clear that you’re the one she loves. And johnny’s the one I… the one I thought I loved.

Johnny: It’s true. I might want to be the ceo of dimera one day, but gabi has convinced me that you’re the right man for the job– in this moment. She can be very persuasive, you know.

Jake: I do know that.

Gabi: I told johnny that you’ve done this job before, so you could be up to speed day one. Also that shin has always been on your side.

Johnny: And besides, I’m so busy with this movie, I don’t have time for another job. Tell you to truth, I kinda wish my producer wasn’t holding me to my contract.

Jake: Hmm, that’s funny, johnny, I thought you were dying to do this movie.

Johnny: Yeah. But I’m just feeling like I’M… in a deal with the devil to tell the devil’s story.

Julie: Perhaps it’s coincidence. But the devil did come to salem to claim your unborn baby. So doug and I got the cross– the one thing that we thought would protect our new great-grandchild.

Ben: Have some water.

Julie: Thank you.

Ciara: Grandma, it’s okay. We can fix it. We will try again and again and again.

Julie: Sweetheart, I know you think I’m overreacting, that I’m just a superstitious old woman. But let me tell you, the last time I saw an upside-down cross, the devil was standing in the middle of my living room.

Ben: And that was horrible, but marlena is not possessed by the devil anymore.

Ciara: Yeah. The exorcism worked, and the entire family was there to witness it.

Julie: Good. I know when the devil passed from doug to marlena… now it’s passed out of marlena. How do we know the devil has left salem?

[Eerie music]

Ahh it’s the birthday girl!

Nicole: I’ve covered a lot of cases like this. Now, I’m not telling you what to do, but I do think it’s wise to take the exit ramp while you still have the chance.

Hutchins: The last time a former associate of ms. Vitali crossed her, he wound up dead with a steak knife in his chest.

Nicole: Are you saying you’re a former associate of ms. Vitali?

Hutchins: I never said that.

Melinda: Mr. Hutchins, there’s been a change in the schedule. What the hell is going on here?

[Tense music]

Ava: [Chuckles] That’s quite a leap there, allie.

Allie: Is it? Because I ran into tripp the other day with my grandfather at the pub, and they said they were talking about uncle steve and aunt kayla, but… tripp is so old fashioned, I bet he was asking for my hand in marriage because my parents aren’t around.

Ava: Okay, now that’s an even bigger leap.

Allie: But is it true?

Ava: Okay, I’m not gonna lie to you. Yeah, it is.

Allie: Oh, my god.

Ava: Okay, now please, please do not say anything to tripp, because he is so excited and I cannot be the one who ruined it for him. It would just kill me if you said no because of me.

Tripp: Thank you for being happy for us.

Chanel: Of course I’m happy. Horton’s just about my favorite person in the world, and… I guess I’m gonna have to get used to calling her johnson now.

Tripp: Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. But speaking of rings, I was thinking about putting it at the bottom of her champagne glass.

Chanel: Well, I mean, if she happens to swallow it, you’re a doctor, so you can do that heimlich thing on her.

Tripp: You think it’s cheesy, don’t you?

Chanel: No, it’s not that. It’s just, um… you know, horton’s not really a big fan of champagne.

Tripp: That’s right. She likes cosmos. But I’ve never made a cosmo before in my life.

Chanel: I got you. I will write down the recipe for you.

Tripp: Oh, thank you.

Chanel: I know just how she likes it.

[Sentimental music]

Johnny: So we all on the same page?

Jake: Yeah. I say we strike while the iron’s hot.

Johnny: Gosh, uncle jake, you sure can turn a phrase. I’m gonna call shin and tell him that we want to convene a board meeting as soon as possible. So if you’ll excuse me.

[Tense music]

Jake: That arrogant son of a bitch.

[Exhales] Again? Sorry to interrupt whatever that was going on here when I walked in.

Gabi: Nothing was going on.

Jake: Looked pretty cozy to me, gabs.

Gabi: We need his votes to get what we want, okay? I know what I’m doing. Would you please trust me?

[Eerie tone]

[Phone beeps] Oh, funny. Maggie kiriakis wants to see you.

Jake: Hmm.

Gabi: What’s that about?

Ciara: Do you think that the devil possessed grandpa doug again?

Julie: Oh, god forbid. But something very strange happened just a couple of nights ago. A fire broke out on top of the stove. The stove was not even on.

Ciara: Are you sure it wasn’t?

Julie: I’m sure, darling. The repair person looked it over, said everything was fine, had to be user error.

Ben: Hmm. And you think maybe that it could have been the devil that did it?

Julie: The fire broke out just as I was leaving to bring you that cross.

Ciara: Yes, and johnny brought it over.

Julie: Yeah, johnny. Johnny showed up. Wanted to talk to doug about this awful movie that he plans to make. Well, I told him what i thought of that.

Ben: Well, he told us that you were busy–

Ciara: “Putting out fires.” He said you were putting out fires, but he said it in a very joking kind of way.

Julie: Well, it wasn’t any joke. The flames were this high, there was absolutely no reason for them, and…

[Sighs] God. Oh, god, this cannot be happening again.

Dry eye symptoms

driving you crazy?

Allie: Ava, it means so much to me that we have a good relationship because of henry and tripp. But even if we didn’t, my feelings for you would never, ever affect how I answer tripp.

Ava: Oh, thank god. Okay. Well, I should let you go, ’cause you’ve got a big night ahead of you. Oh. Please act surprised.

Allie: Oh, no worries there.

Chanel: All right. And serve in a chilled cocktail glass.

Tripp: Oh, thank you.

Chanel: Cosmos a la london, as prescribed by chanel dupree.

Tripp: Thank you so much. You’re the best. And whatever I can do to help you in court, you can count on me.

Chanel: Well, we might wanna rethink that. When I asked you, I didn’t know that you were just about to become johnny’s brother-in-law.

Tripp: Well, he’ll be my brother-in-law only if allie says “yes.”

Chanel: Well, if she does say “yes,” then just make sure it’s cool with her for you to testify.

Tripp: I’m sure it will be. I mean, she feels the same about johnny as I do. She’s even taken to calling him the evil twin.

[Ominous music]

Jake: I swear, I have no idea what maggie wants.

[Phone beeps]

Gabi: Well, she says it’s urgent.

Jake: It’s gotta have something to do with victor and the titan stuff. Better get going.

Gabi: Well, let me know what she says.

Jake: You know I will. But just fair warning, I don’t plan on doing much business talk.

[Ominous music]

[Eerie tone]

Ciara: Has grandpa doug been okay lately?

Julie: He hasn’t locked me in the freezer again, if that’s what you’re asking.

Ciara: Oh, god. I–I don’t know exactly what I’m asking. I just… has he been acting out of character?

Julie: No. No, he’s back to being the most wonderful husband in the world again. And you know I’m watching him like a hawk after everything we’ve been through.

Ciara: Yeah, well, sure. Of course. I can imagine.

Julie: Come to think of it… when the devil left doug, went into marlena, she was present in the room. I mean, she was physically there with him. Now, doug was not at that exorcism. So there’s no way that the devil could have gone back to possess him.

Ben: Is that how these things work?

Julie: That’s what I’m told.

Ben: All right.

Julie: Okay, uh, I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry if I’ve disturbed you people.

Ben: No, no, no.

Julie: I didn’t mean to. I guess I am getting…

[Sighs] Crazy.

Ben: No, no.

Julie: I just want you to be well and, oh, my god, I want you to be safe, darling. And consider yourselves lucky that you don’t have a gas stove.

[Both chuckle] Have a wonderful, wonderful valentine’s day together.

Ben: Thank you.

Ciara: We will. And tell grandpa doug that i love him and give him all my hugs and kisses.

Julie: I’ll be glad to do.

Ciara: Okay.

Julie: Bye-bye.

Ciara: Bye.

Ben: Bye, julie.

Ciara: [Sighs] Okay, she really just gave me a scare. Ben?

Ben: It just doesn’t make any damn sense, ciara. There’s nothing wrong with the nail. The cross wasn’t top-heavy.

Ciara: Okay, now you’re scaring me.

Ben: Okay, hey. Let’s go inside.


[Tense music]

Ciara: Ben, what are you thinking?

Ben: I’m thinking that maybe she was right. That there’s no way that the devil could have gone back into doug.

Ciara: But?

Ben: But maybe… it could have jumped into somebody else.

[Tense music]

This is the sound of nature breathing.

Hutchins: This lady says she’s a reporter, that she wanted to talk to me about–

Melinda: This is not a lady or a reporter. This is a witness tamperer. Get out, miss walker, before I have the bailiff throw you out. And I suggest you call a lawyer unless you wanna join your boyfriend in statesville.

[Phone beeps]

[Line ringing]

[Phone rings, beeps]

Ava: Hey, honey.

Tripp: Hey, mom. I just wanted to say thank you for helping me get ready for tonight.

Ava: Yeah, of course. How you doing?

Tripp: I wish I could fast-forward to dinner. But hey, can I ask you to pick up a few extra things for me? I’m gonna need some cranberry juice and some limes.

Ava: Cosmos, huh? Sounds like everything’s a go.

Tripp: Yeah. Yeah, she’s gonna be so surprised.

Chanel: Hey, horton. You look like you’re contemplating the meaning of life.

Allie: I kind of am. I just found out from tripp’s mom that he’s going to propose to me tonight.

Chanel: I know. He told me.

Allie: He told you?

Chanel: Well, only because he wanted my opinion of the ring. You’ll love it. It’s gorge.

Allie: I bet I will.

Chanel: So I know he wanted it to be a surprise, but since you know, what are you gonna say?

[Chilling music]

Jack: [Grunts]

Gabi: What’s wrong?

Jack: Damn it.

[Vocalizes] I don’t know. A weird shock feeling.

Gabi: It’s been really dry out; I’m literally an electroshock machine. Are you okay?

Jake: [Vocalizes] Yeah. I’ll be fine. I’ll see you later.

Gabi: Yeah.

Jake: Oh, and, uh, I hope you’re hungry, because I got a bit of a surprise for you when I get back from maggie’S. See you, johnny.

Gabi: He’s got a surprise for me. He’s still plotting with maggie practically out in the open.

Johnny: Well, you’ve got an even bigger surprise for him. You know what they say: Pride goeth before the fall.

Ciara: So if the devil is still after our baby…

Ben: It had to have been somebody at the exorcism.

Ciara: All right, well, belle told me who was there. Marlena, of course. John, eric, brady, sami, allie, and johnny. Johnny. The one who brought us the cross.
