Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Orpheus: I didn’t know you were a fan of chick lit.
Clyde: Well, slim pickings in our library, milo. It was either this or the dictionary.
Orpheus: I’ve read it. It got way too many big words in it for you.
Clyde: Oh, you’re such a funny guy. Tell you the truth, I dig this miranda priestly chick. She suffers no fools, that’s for damn sure.
Orpheus: Well, I’ll just have to take a peek at it when you’re done. Unless your new cellmate has got first dibs.
Ej: Belle. You’re a sight for sore eyes.
Belle: Well, good morning. How are you holding up?
Ej: Eh, as well as can be expected considering the dreary surroundings. And I’m hoping against hope that you might have a update on the case that could uplift my spirits. Please tell me you’ve made progress on my appeal.
Belle: As a matter of fact, I have.
Ben: “Insert the seat support tube into the small holes of the backrest tube. Ensure the pushpins are completely pushed in.” What the–what’s a pushpin?
Ciara: You can reassemble a vintage harley, but a baby swing has you stumped?
Ben: [Sighs] Ciara, a vintage harley doesn’t come with ridiculously confusing instructions.
Ben: But I see you’re feeling better, yeah?
Ciara: Yeah. Yeah, the shower definitely helped. I cannot believe you let me sleep in so late.
Ben: Well, you needed to. You were tossing and turning all night. Did you have a bad dream?
Ciara: Not exactly. I just– I couldn’t stop thinking about what we were talking about last night.
Ben: You mean that johnny dimera might be possessed?
Jake: Johnny. The hell’s going on?
Demon johnny: Well, haven’t you noticed? I’m not johnny dimera.
Jake: I– [Grunts] I don’t understand.
Demon johnny: Let me ask you something, jake. Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Chad: Okay, gabi. Enough fooling around. Get your feet off my desk.
Gabi: This is my desk in my office. I’ll put my damn feet wherever I want.
Chad: Oh, wow, you are really committed. Okay. All right, you’ve had your fun. Now, uh–now, get out. And, uh, don’t try this again. Stop sweet-talking your way past my security, yeah?
Gabi: Actually, you’re gonna be the one that’s gonna need security clearance.
Chad: The hell are you talking about?
Gabi: You’re looking at the new ceo of dimera.
Chad: [Laughs] Okay.
Gabi: Oh, you don’t believe me, chad? Go ahead, call shin. He will back up every single word I said.
Chad: You’re serious.
Gabi: About the fact that I now am in charge of this company? I am very serious.
Chad: You? The new ceo?
Gabi: I mean, how many different ways can I say it, chad?
Chad: How in the hell did you pull that off?
Jake: Who– [Grunts] What are you?
Demon johnny: You mind? Look, you might be able to put your grubby paws on johnny dimera, but you do not manhandle the almighty. Avoiding triggers, but can’t keep migraine attacks away?
Gabi: You took your eye off the ball, chad. See, while you were with tony gallivanting in the dimera jet searching for your missing wife, I was here.
Gabi: Ah, seizing the professional moment.
Chad: We found her, by the way. Abigail’s fine. Thanks for asking.
Gabi: Oh, good. Well then it wasn’t a complete loss for you today. See, let’s get back to me. Um, I–I used your glaring absence and ej’s unfortunate incarceration to hold an emergency shareholder meeting, which resulted in me getting the top position and johnny being elected to the board.
Chad: J–johnny? My little nephew is on the board of this company?
Gabi: That’s right. But I wouldn’t call him “little” seeing as he has significant control over dimera.
Chad: Shin cannot be okay with this.
Gabi: Well, he was. In fact, he made the deciding vote.
Gabi: Yeah, I believe he said that he couldn’t have his company’s leadership abandoning ship, and it’s also time for a change.
Chad: I don’t believe this is happening.
Gabi: It’s a lot to absorb, I know.
Chad: And what about– what about jake? What’s his new position? Is he emperor of the top floor?
Chad: Jake, my brother, your boyfriend. I assume he’s getting something out of all of this.
Gabi: Oh. Oh, yes, he did. Yes, he– he got his ass handed to him.
Demon johnny: Did you think the devil was gone? A proverbial christmas miracle? Come on. Only losers believe in miracles.
Jake: So you’ve been here, in johnny, for months?
Demon johnny: You’re catching on. I was beginning to think you were a little slow on the uptake. Of course, neither you nor your smoking hot girlfriend are nearly as smart as you think you are. It was so easy convincing her to betray you.
Jake: So you’re the reason–
Demon johnny: She thought you were gonna screw her over? Yeah, guilty as charged, uncle jakey.
Jake: I knew it.
Demon johnny: You know, she already had doubts about you. All I had to do was stroke them. A few parlor tricks, flash of my big sword, I had her in my clutches, and now, I’m gonna get her into my bed.
Ciara: I mean, part of me still thinks it’s crazy. You know, the devil jumping out of marlena and into johnny.
Ben: Ciara, I know, and I don’t even care how crazy it is anymore. We still need to check it out, make sure that johnny’s not a danger to our baby.
Ciara: Yeah. Did–did susan banks call you back yet?
Ben: No. I’ve only been checking my phone every five minutes. I’m thinking it might be time to try her again.
[Knocking on door] Did you order another pizza? You got to stop doing this or– oh, my god–susan. Hey.
Ciara: Hi. Susan. We were literally just talking about you. How did you know that we wanted to see you?
Susan: [Spluttering] ‘Cause your hubby sent me a message, silly.
Ben: I didn’t even tell you what it was about.
Susan: Well, you didn’t have to. See, as soon as I heard your voice in my ear–boom! I had a premonition, and I knew you were talking about someone near and dear to my heart. So I hopped on the first bus here to salem.
Ben: Wait, you knew what I was calling you about?
Susan: Oh, yes, of course. Yeah. My son. My son, elvis.
Ej: So you tracked down the henchman who held sami captive?
Belle: And testified falsely that you paid him to do it, jason smith.
Ej: How did you find him?
Belle: Well, it wasn’t easy. I mean, he basically went off the grid after I implicated you.
Belle: And I wanted him to admit it.
Ej: Why would he ever do that?
Belle: Well, he wouldn’T. Which is why I tried to trip him up and trick him into telling me who really did it.
Belle: And no luck. The guy is sticking to his story.
Ej: Then we’re back to square one.
Belle: Well, maybe not. There are other avenues we could explore.
Clyde: You know, it’s funny how life works, isn’t it? Warden decides to give you a new cellmate, turns out to be my old pal, ej dimera.
Orpheus: Pal? Don’t you mean business associate? The two of you ran a drug operation, did you not?
Clyde: Now, where would you come up with an idea like that?
Orpheus: [Laughs] Surely you’ve read the sign in the library, “knowledge is power.” I make it a point to stay in the know.
Clyde: Well, you don’t know squat about me, milo.
Orpheus: Oh, but I do. In fact, I know a great deal. Including that your relationship with ej went south. Isn’t that why you killed him? Okay, this is a freezer, not a time capsule.
Belle: So I’ve been working with the wisconsin state police to try to find the other guy who was guarding sami, that guy, pete, to see if he would contradict jason’s story.
Belle: And since he was never arrested, finding him has been a challenge.
Ej: [Sighs] In other words, that avenue is closed.
Belle: Yeah, but there are others.
Ej: Such as?
Belle: Such as insufficient evidence.
Ej: Didn’t you try that already?
Belle: Well, I– I tried to get a dismissal based on those grounds. And I probably would have, but you wanted to take the stand.
Ej: You know how much I regret that. If I had to do it over again, I–I–
Belle: Well, you don’t have it to do over again. The fact that remains that the judge made his ruling based on some really biased witnesses. I mean, you have– you have jason, you have lucas, chad, sami. I mean, there is so much room for reasonable doubt.
Ej: Then why not forget searching for the other henchman and just focus on overturning the judge’s ruling?
Belle: Well, because the odds of success there are slim. The jury would have been a lot easier, but someone didn’t want a jury trial.
Ej: [Groans] When I made that ill-fated decision, you told me to shut up, sit down, and let you do your job. And I didn’T. I disregarded your advice at every turn. And yet still here you are.
Belle: I told you I wouldn’t abandon you. I meant that. I know you’re innocent, and soon everyone else will too.
Ej: Thank you, belle. I hope you know how appreciative I am for all of your help.
Belle: Well, let’s get back to the original question. How are you doing in here? Ooh, and how are things with your cellmate?
Ej: You mean with clyde weston?
Clyde: I hate to burst your bubble, milo, but your information is bogus. Ej dimera is alive and kicking.
Orpheus: [Chuckles] Thanks to the wondrous wizardry of dr. Wilhelm rolf. But that night in the park when ej was shot, everyone thought he was dead.
Clyde: But I ain’t the one who plugged him. Some two-bit junkie did that.
Orpheus: That’s what the cops believe. Doesn’t make it true.
Clyde: [Laughs] As god is my witness, I did not shoot ej dimera.
Orpheus: Okay, clyde, maybe you didn’t pull the trigger. Maybe that honor went to your buddy, miguel, is it? But you are certainly responsible for that bullet ending up in ej’s chest.
Ben: You thought we called you about ej?
Susan: Yeah. Of course. He was in my premonition. And I have been thinking about him nonstop since that mean, mean, mean judge sent him to prison for a crime that he did not commit.
Ciara: No. Susan. Susan, I–
Susan: And everyone– everybody knows that my elvis loves his samantha, and they have their issues like all couples do, but I mean, he would never dream of kidnapping her.
Ben: Look, susan, we weren’t calling you about ej.
Susan: Oh. Okay. Well, then, what the heck were you calling me about?
Ciara: Um, his son.
Susan: Johnny? Wha–I mean, what possibly could be wrong with him?
Ben: You know, susan, you might want to brace yourself.
Jake: I–I got to warn gabi.
Demon johnny: Leaving so soon?
Jake: Guess not. Guess I’m dancing with the devil after all.
Chad: Dimera’s in chaos because you and jake got into a fight?
Gabi: It doesn’t matter why it happened. All that matters is that I landed on top.
Chad: No. I’m–I’m– I don’t think so.
Gabi: Excuse me?
Chad: You and jake can go at each other all you want, but this is my family’s company, my children’s legacy, and there’s no way in hell I am gonna let some lover’s quarrel destroy it.
Gabi: Oh. I see. So what exactly are you gonna do?
Chad: I’ll call a meeting.
Gabi: You– [Laughs] You need a majority to remove me.
Chad: Not a problem.
Gabi: Oh, it is though, because you don’t have the votes. Shin wants you out. And now that johnny has a seat on the board, he has ej’s shares as well as his own.
Chad: I–I don’t understand why he would turn on me like that. He wanted to work with me to remove vultures like you from dimera.
Gabi: Looks like you got played by your “little” nephew.
Chad: That little punk isn’t gonna get away with it.
To be a thriver with
metastatic breast cancer
Clyde: You spin a good yarn, orpheus. But I don’t know what you’re talking about. I wasn’t even around when that shooting went down.
Orpheus: But ej was. Tell me, how does he feel about cohabitating with the guy who blew him away? I mean, that must make for some awkward conversations.
Clyde: Hey. Even if I had been there, ej wouldn’t know nothing about it. He doesn’t remember a damn thing about that evening.
Orpheus: That’s a hell of a thing to forget.
Clyde: Well, one of the pesky side effects of rolf’s miracle drug. Yeah, it’ll get you back to the land of the living, but does a real number on the old memory bank.
Orpheus: Yep, yep. But as I understand it, in time, the memories come back. So clyde, what you gonna do when ej remembers that you double-crossed him and left him to die?
Belle: Clyde weston is your cellmate?
Belle: I mean, whoa, that is surprising. How’s it going?
Ej: So far, so good.
Belle: I thought–I– I just wouldn’t have thought that you two would hit it off.
Ej: Actually, we’re already acquainted.
Belle: How? Ej, you’re a lawyer. You know anything you say to me is confidential.
Ej: Clyde and I used to be in business together.
Belle: Mm. And I assume this business wasn’t exactly legit.
Ej: That would be a smart assumption.
Belle: I don’t know, maybe– maybe we should put in a request for a different cellmate. You know, I–I just don’t want this association you have with clyde weston to jeopardize your appeal.
Ej: Ancient history. I actually think he could be quite helpful.
Belle: How so?
Ej: He’s been in here a long time. Knows the place quite well. He told me he’d show me the ropes.
Belle: And you think you can rely on–on clyde weston?
Ej: Don’t get me wrong, I don’t trust the man in the slightest. But if I’m going to survive in here, I need someone to have my back. Is clyde weston my first choice? God, no. But right now, he’s the only choice I’ve got.
Susan: So you think the devil is hanging his hat in my sweet, little grandson, johnny, huh?
Ciara: Look, we know it sounds crazy–
Susan: Ah! I don’t like that word. It’s very judgy and it–it’s unkind.
Ciara: You’re right. I’m sorry.
Susan: [Sighs] So johnny possessed. Now, wh–what makes you think a thing like that?
Ben: Well, thers just been some strange occurrences recently.
Susan: Okay, well, like what?
Ciara: Well, like my grandma gave us a housewarming gift to hang outside of the apartment, a nice little cross.
Susan: Oh. Well, what’s so strange about that?
Ciara: Well, on her way to deliver it to us, her stove randomly burst into flames even though the thing wasn’t even on.
Ben: And while this mysterious fire just erupted, johnny happened to have been there, so he volunteered to bring the cross to us. And he did. He dropped it off, we hung it up, and this thing keeps flipping upside down.
Ciara: Mm-hmm. Every single time. And my grandma thought that it is a sign that the devil is back in town. And we know that the devil can jump from one body to another.
Ben: Right, and we also know that the only way for that to happen is that person that he did jump into would have to have been present at the exorcism, which your grandson, johnny, was.
Susan: You think that beelzebub boomeranged out of dr. Marlena evans and into my sweet, little grandson, johnny? And then he used the cross to leave his mark?
Ciara: Yeah, well, that’s why we wanted to talk to you, because you had the premonition that the devil was after my baby in the first place. You had the premonition that marlena was possessed by the devil.
Ben: And we were just wondering if maybe you had sensed anything about johnny.
Susan: Well, I was at the dimera mansion after the exorcism. And believe you me, if I even had the teensiest, weensiest feeling that old scratch had invaded my sweet, little grandson, johnny, I would have never left town.
Ciara: [Sighs] Yeah.
Ben: We knew it was gonna be a long shot.
Ciara: Yeah. Yeah, look, I’m sorry, susan. I’m sorry, we let our imaginations run wild. Clearly we were wrong about the devil being back in salem.
Susan: Uh, not necessarily.
Gabi: What the hell was that?
Chad: You’re the new ceo. You figure it out.
Gabi: What happened? J–johnny, I thought you said you were calling security.
Johnny: I didn’t have to. Jake left voluntarily. I mean, at least I thought he did. I thought he was gonna be a grown-up about all this, then he stormed back in here and attacked me.
Gabi: Jake. Jake, are you okay?
Johnny: The guy was acting like a complete psycho. I–I had no choice. I had to defend myself.
Gabi: Jake, jake, jake. Can you hear me? Jake.
Jake: [Groans] Gabi.
Gabi: [Sighs] Jake. What the hell were you thinking?
Jake: [Grunting] Johnny.
[Groans] He’s– he’s–
[Winces] We hit the bike trails every weekend
Susan: So after the exorcism, I had a premonition that the devil was still here in salem. And I thought that he just ducked right back into dr. Marlena evans. So I went over to her place, and I sprayed her full of holy water. I did it all over. And I tried to banish that demon, once and for all.
Ciara: But the demon wasn’t inside her.
Susan: No, no, no. She–she assured me that she was 100% her. So I just thought that my– my devil-detector was on fritz.
Ben: Huh. And you didn’t get any bad vibes about johnny?
Susan: No. No, not one. And I–and I mean, I saw him before I left town. But–
Ben: But what?
Susan: The night of johnny’s engagement party…
Susan: I got sick. I got sick, and I went to the hospital. I just knew that something was not right. I mean, I–I couldn’t shake this feeling, this feeling that–that– that there was this evil force behind it all.
Ciara: The devil.
Susan: Yes. And I just didn’t– I didn’t think that he was done with us yet. Huh. But johnny possessed, huh? I just can’t believe I just stood right in front of him, my kin, my flesh and blood, and I just didn’t have a clue.
Jake: He’s– [Groans]
Gabi: He’s–he’s what?
[Groans] Damn it. He’s a creep… who tricked you into stabbing me in the back.
Gabi: What happened? J–johnny, I thought you said you were calling security.
Johnny: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.
Belle: Oh. Our time’s almost up. Is there anything else you need?
Ej: Just find a way to get me out of this hellhole.
Belle: Well, I’m on it. My next angle is chad.
Ej: [Laughs] Don’t waste your time.
Belle: Why? Why do you say that?
Ej: The last time I saw my brother, he called me a criminal, a sociopath, and told me he hopes I’ll stay locked up forever.
Belle: Well, he was out of his mind with worry. And good news, abigail is home. She’s safe and sound.
Ej: Wonderful. I’m sure chad’s state of mind is much better. But not good enough that he’d help me.
Belle: Well, that’s exactly what he was going to do before he had that coughing fit on the witness stand.
Ej: Mm-hmm. And then he did the opposite.
Belle: Because he thought you tried to force yourself on his wife.
Ej: Which I assure you, I did not.
Belle: Okay. My point is, whatever did or did not happen, chad led me to believe that we’d be pleased with his testimony, which means he knows something. Something that we haven’t heard yet that could exonerate you.
Ej: And you think you can get that out of him?
Belle: Well, I’m sure gonna try. Chad is the one who found the payments that link you to sami’s kidnapper. And if I can get him to admit that he planted those or–or he knows who did, that’s gonna go a long way to proving your innocence.
Ej: While I admire your tenacity, I seriously doubt that my brother, who hates me more now than he did before I was arrested, is going to volunteer any new information.
Belle: I am gonna get you out of here. That’s a promise.
Ej: I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have you in my corner.
Belle: Well, hopefully, this will all be over soon. In the meantime, chin up.
Orpheus: You’re up for parole soon, correct?
Clyde: Yeah. I finally got a new hearing. And with any luck, I’m about to blow this popsicle stand.
Orpheus: Unless those nasty memories come back to ej and leave you in a body bag.
Clyde: No, that ain’t gonna happen.
Orpheus: Well, there’s also the possibility that someone could present the parole bar with evidence that links you to a new crime.
Clyde: That would certainly throw a wrench into the works.
Orpheus: Yeah. Yeah, it would. But you sort of got it coming, don’t you?
Clyde: Hey, man, I get it. You hold a grudge against me for stabbing you, I know. But like I told you before, I did that for my son. Ollie was looking for his wife. I was just helping him.
Orpheus: My son did try to kill ben, so I suppose that makes us even. Besides, if you do get a parole, might be useful to have a– a friend on the outside.
Clyde: [Laughs] Yeah. I always say, one hand washes the other.
Orpheus: Hm. So we’ve established that it’s in both of our best interest that ej never remember what you did to him. Because if he does, we’ll both suffer the consequences.
Ej: What consequences are those?
(Vo) at dog chow
Chad: Come in.
Belle: Thanks for agreeing to see me.
Chad: What can I do for you?
Belle: Well, I just came from statesville, and I want to talk to you about your brother’s appeal.
Clyde: Ha, what a coincidence. I was just telling my friend here about my new cellmate.
Orpheus: And I was just telling clyde how fortunate he is. My cellmate can’t seem to figure out a way to hide his contraband. Keeps getting us both put on lockdown.
Ej: I see, those consequences.
Clyde: Ej dimera, meet milo harp.
Orpheus: You can call me orpheus. It’s a pleasure.
Orpheus: Well, I’m sure glad to see you boys are getting along.
Susan: [Grunting] I can’t believe the devil has possessed my poor grandson.
Ciara: Well, no, susan, we don’t know that for sure.
Ben: I mean, this entire thing could be a series of bizarre coincidences.
Susan: Oh, you are being so kind to me, ben weston. But you know what, I cannot bury my head in the sand. See, if my johnny is going toe-to-toe with that devil, then he’s gonna need help from his grandmama. Yep, so I need to get there right away.
Ben: All right, well, I’m gonna go with you.
Susan: Oh, oh, oh. No. No. No. I really appreciate it, benny. But you know what, if you show up with me, then that might tip lucifer off that we’re on to him.
Ciara: Yeah, but susan, I really think that we–
Susan: And you know what?
Susan: If the devil is in the dimera mansion, then I am the one who’s going to find out, sooner rather than later. Okay, here I go.
Susan: Hoo! [Sighs]
Ciara: All right.
Gabi: What happened in here?
Jake: I don’t know. It’s all a little fuzzy.
Gabi: Johnny says you attacked him.
Jake: That’s a lie, just like everything else he’s been telling you.
Gabi: Just stop.
Jake: I–gabi, I– he’s playing you. He got you to believe that I’m doing all this stuff that I didn’t do.
Gabi: Like telling maggie that you’d be fine if I didn’t get the top position at titan. Huh? As long as you got what you wanted, you’d be fine handling me.
Jake: I never said that.
Gabi: I was there. I heard you say you were just using me.
Jake: That’s impossible!
Gabi: And the signature on the petition to steal my late husband’s shares from me. Huh? How do you explain that?
Jake: I don’t know, I can’T. Okay? At least not yet. But I know that little weasel was behind it.
Johnny: Come on, do we really have to listen to this again? I mean, at this point it’s– it’s just pathetic.
Jake: Gabi and I are talking here, pal.
Johnny: And clearly, she’s not interested in anything you have to say.
Jake: You want to let the lady speak for herself.
Johnny: Or what? You gonna go all hulk on me again?
Gabi: Johnny, would you just let me and jake speak alone, please?
Johnny: You sure you’re gonna be okay?
Gabi: I’ll be fine.
Jake: You happy now? You got everything you want? Ceo at dimera.
Gabi: That’s right.
Jake: So what? Obviously, you don’t need me anymore, right?
Jake: I guess we break up now, that’s it?
Gabi: You know what, spare me the act, please. Don’t pretend. This is your fault.
Is it cool if I go by the house, pick up my stuff?
Gabi: Maybe you should get yourself checked out first–
Jake: I’m fine, I’m fine.
Gabi: Adios, then.
Jake: I love you, gabi. I don’t understand why you’re doing this.
Gabi: That makes two of us. If you want to get your stuff, now would be a good time because no one’s there.
Jake: You know, a few weeks ago, we were on top of the world, you and me. Partners in life, in business. We had our whole bright future ahead of us. And now… I don’t know how this could have happened.
Clyde: So how’d it go with your lawyer?
Ej: Unfortunately, she had nothing new to report.
Clyde: Well, one thing I’ve learned in here, good things come to those who wait.
Ej: Patience was never my strong suit.
Clyde: Well, it ain’t so bad, you know. We got a roof over our heads, three squares a day. Hey. Take my advice. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this nice, cushy lifestyle.
Ej: What did you just say?
Clyde: [Laughs] I said, enjoy this nice, cushy lifestyle. You got the fancy accent, a mistress on the side and a nice, cushy lifestyle handed to you on a platter. Hey. You all right?
Ej: Yes. I was just thinking.
Chad: So you came all the way over here to talk about ej?
Belle: Yeah. Why? What’d you think I came over here to talk to you about?
Chad: Well, I assumed since you’re the company’s general counsel, you’d heard the news.
Belle: What news?
Chad: That scheming bitch ousted me from dimera.
Jake: See, we don’t have to share power. You know why? As soon as we take over both companies, you’ll run titan, I’ll run dimera.
Gabi: I like the sound of that.
Jake: Right? We’ll work on it first thing in the morning, but in the meantime, why don’t we work on a little merger of our own?
Ciara: All right. I am going to head to the hospital to pick up some more prenatal vitamins.
Ben: I’m going with you.
Ciara: Uh-uh. No, no, no. You are staying right here until you finish that swing.
Ciara: Nice try, baby. Love you.
Ben: [Huffs] Love you too.
Ciara: Good luck.
Ciara: Oh. Hi, jake. Bye, jake.
Ben: My man. What’s going on?
Ben: Ooh. You do not look good.
Jake: Yeah, well, after the day I had, it’s not much of a surprise.
Ben: Oh, my god, guy. What happened?
Jake: Gabi double-crossed me. And, uh, yeah, left herself as head of dimera and me out in the cold.
Ben: What the hell happened?
Jake: I’m still trying to figure that out. What I do know is that snake, johnny dimera, got it in her head that I was the one who betrayed her. I just don’t know how he did it.
Ben: Well, I’ll tell you what, man, I can think of one possibility.
Susan: Knock, knock.
Johnny: Ah, grandma. Wh–what are you doing here?
Susan: [Clears throat] I’m here to see if you really are my grandson.
