Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Xander: You, uh, haven’t eaten much. Not hungry?
Gwen: Late luncH.
Xander: Hmm. So, um, did you get a chance to think about what we talked about earlier, coming with me to statesville?
Gwen: About going to see rolf, right. Because if he has the antidote for the drug that he created that caused sarah to lose her mind, well, then you just might get the old sarah back. And wouldn’t that be brilliant?
Maggie: [Laughs] Well, looks like you’re settling in.
Tony: The scotch is superb, maggie.
Maggie: Ah, great. Victor and i are about to retire for the evening, and I just wanted to make sure that you have everything you need.
Tony: Oh, i do, thank you.
Maggie: I know that victor has yet to welcome you.
Tony: I don’t think he ever will. I can’t imagine he’s happy about a dimera staying under his roof.
Maggie: [Clears throat] I can handle victor.
Tony: [Laughs] Like no one else.
Maggie: Mm, tony, I want to thank you again for agreeing to move in here.
Tony: Well, we all want the same thing, for sarah to be healthy again.
Maggie: Yeah. And I have to say that anna was the unsung hero in all of this. Because I know how difficult this has been for her.
Tony: It has been difficult. But she’s come to understand that we all want to do is just help sarah. And she’s totally on board with my staying here.
Anna: On board, my eye.
Chad: [Sighing] Ugh. Okay.
Leo: Wait a minutE.
Chad: I thought you wanted me to get in the bed.
Leo: Oh, I do. But I got to see that ass first. Even better than i imagineD. Now, let’s get this party started.
Chloe: Mm, thank you. Look, I know what we’re doing is best for my dad, but it just kills me to know that he’s gonna have his heart broken.
Abigail: We are doing this specifically to help your dad.
Chloe: I know, I know, and I also hated dragging you and chad into this.
Abigail: Oh, no, no, you didn’t drag us. I mean, hey, like I said, gave me an opportunity to work on my acting chops, right?
Chloe: Playing the younger version of my mom. “The nancy wesley story,” where she finds out that her husband is actually attracted to men.
Brady: You pulled it off brilliantly, by the way. Leo had no ideA.
Abigail: Yeah, well, thank yoU. But now it’s chad’s turn. You know, I just hope he’s ready for his close-up.
Leo: I cannot believe this is happeninG.
Chad: Neither can I.
Leo: Don’t worry, I’m gonna be real gentle. My lovemaking philosophy is based on the ike and tina turner version of “proud mary.” We’re gonna go real nice and slow in the beginning and then finish, well, not so nice.
Chad: You know, tina turner, what a wonderful artist. What other songs of hers do you like? Do you like–
Leo: Shut up and kiss me.
Craig: What the hell is going on?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our liveS.”
Craig: What are you doing? Who is this guy? Who are you?
Chad: Me? Nobody.
Leo: Actually, he’s chadwicK. Chadwick, this is my boyfriend, craig.
Chad: Oh, my god! I never should’ve–
Craig: What are you doing in bed with this guy?
Leo: Well, the truth is–
Chad: No, the truth is that nothing actually happened, but we were totally gonna go all the way.
Craig: Get dressed.
Chad: It’s craig, right?
Craig: Yeah. It’s craig.
Chad: Craig, I’m– I feel very bad about this. Really, I feel terriblE. The truth is I was drinking, and I sort of just showed up on leo’s doorstep, but I can’t imagine how hard this must be for you to find out that the person that you love is cheating on you. Ugh.
Chloe: The sooner we get that snake out of our lives, the better. Leo’s done enough damage and not just to my dad.
Abigail: What do you mean?
Chloe: Oh, um, I’m sorry, but my dad took your aunt, kayla’s, job at the hospitaL.
Chloe: Yeah, I guess he’s the new chief of staff at university hospital.
Abigail: Wait. Are you serious? They fired my aunt kayla?
Brady: They did. Chloe and I are convinced that when leo found out that kayla’s job was in jeopardy, he probably pushed craig to go after the job. Leo made this happen.
Xander: Judging by your attitude, you’re not particularly thrilled at the prospect of coming along with me.
Gwen: Thank you. I’m sorry about being negative beforE. It’s–
[Sighs] It’s not about sarah. I understand why you’d want to help that poor woman. I just– I’m not proud of my association with rolf. I was in a very, very– I was in a very dark place when I went to him about abigail.
Xander: Well, you’re not that person anymore.
Gwen: Which is why I don’t want to go back to that part of my life. And especially now that jack has forgiven me for my past misdeeds.
Xander: Well, just think of it this way. If you convince rolf to help sarah, then jack and the whole horton clan will be forever indebted to you for bringing sarah back to them, I mean–
Gwen: Why do you need me to come and help you with rolf? Didn’t you meet him nashville? You probably have a better relationship with him than I do.
Xander: Yeah, but it’s not a particularly good onE. I mean, he hates my guts. Gwen, of course I understand why you’d be reluctant to come along with me and, I mean, it’s obviously gonna bring up all these bad memories. And obviously, i realize that, um– well, I’d be a fool not to, wouldn’t I?
Gwen: What do you realize?
Xander: That you don’t want sarah to get better.
Tony: Anna, what are you doing here?
Anna: Well, what does it look like, darling? I’ve come to take you home.
Tony: But i thought we agreed.
Anna: Yeah, well, I changed my mind.
Maggie: I’ll give you two privacy to discuss this.
Sarah as renee: Really, anna? Isn’t it bad enough that you’re squatting in the dimera family mansion? Now you’re stalking us?
Anna: I have come to take my husband home where he belongs.
Sarah as renee: I’ll handle this, darling. I know this must be difficult for you, anna, but it’s time that you realize that what you thought you had with tony is oveR. He and I are finally back together, and tonight we’re gonna prove it in every way imaginable.
Abigail: I mean, not only is my aunt a brilliant doctor, she’s totally beloved at that hospital, and they just fired her without warning?
Brady: Actually, they did warn her.
Abigail: I don’t understand. What could aunt kayla have possibly done to deserve to lose her job?
Brady: Abby, she refused to fire marlena.
Chloe: Yeah, the hospital board was pressuring kayla to fire marlena ’cause of the whole devil possession situation.
Brady: A lot of patients were filing complaints.
Abigail: Oh, my god. That didn’t even occur to me. What a horrible position for kayla to be in.
Brady: And when she didn’t comply, the board decided to go ahead and get another chief of staff that would do the dirty work.
Abigail: Unbelievable. So you both think that it was leo who put craig up to putting his hat in the ring or whatever?
Chloe: I think we’re pretty sure of iT.
Abigail: Such a nightmare. Although, it sounds like aunt kayla would’ve lost her job no matter what, which is totally awful and unfair. I just hope that we hear from chad soon.
Brady: Yeah. Well, look, it’s getting late, and I have a little girl that i need to tuck in. So do you want to come over to my place and we can wait on word there on operation oust leo?
Chloe: Yeah, I’d love that, and I’d love to give that little girl a smooch myself.
Abigail: Well, I promise that I will call you as soon as I hear that your dad has kicked leo to the curb.
Chloe: Thank you.
Chad: Leo said that you were at work. I certainly did not intend for you to walk in on us.
Leo: Maybe you didn’t, but I did.
Chad: You did? What are you talking about?
Leo: I texted my boo to come home. Isn’t that right, sweetheart?
Craig: “Come home quick,” he wrote, “I have a surprise for you.”
Chad: When did you do that?
Leo: When I went to the bathroom to change.
Chad: Why did you do that?
Leo: Come on now, chadwick. You didn’t really think we were gonna have sex without my boyfriend joining us, did you?
Gwen: How dare you.
Xander: How dare I what?
Gwen: How dare you make me out to be like I’m the bad one here, xander? I mean, like I’m the reason that sarah’s running around town believing that she’s some long-dead dimera heiress. That is all on my sister.
Xander: I never said you were to blame, gwen. I’m just saying that it feels a little like maybe you don’t want to help me help sarah.
Gwen: And why would I do be in such a rush to help you? So that sarah can go back to her fabulous, old wonderful self, and then the two of you can just get back together and live happily ever after? Because that is the plan, isn’t it?
Sarah as renee: Tony and i are reunited, anna. It’s time for you to face the facts.
Anna: Well, i have a few facts for you, dearie. Like for starters, you are not–
Tony: Anna! That’s enough. Maggie, do you mind if you could give us a few moments alone so we can talk?
Sarah as renee: You can’t be alone with this lunatic.
Anna: Oh, I’m the lunatic? Really? I’m the one doing the third-rate impersonation of a dead woman?
Maggie: Renee, it’s a glorious night. The moon is full and i’d love for you to see the garden. Why don’t you come out with me?
Tony: Yes, why don’t you? Just for a few minutes. Would you do that for me, dear?
Sarah as renee: Fine. But when i come back, you had better be gone.
Tony: What’s the matter with you, anna? I thought we had an understanding that I would stay here to help. Instead, no sooner do I leave the house, you come bursting in here loaded for bear.
Anna: Because you don’t belong here, tony. You belong with me. And I know I agreed to this ridiculous arrangement, but once i had a chance to think about it, I could– I realized just how unfair it really is.
Tony: Anna, listen to me. Actually, you know this already. But I’ll say it once again in the hopes that it’ll actually register. My living arrangements here are temporary to keep sarah stable so they can finally cure her from her break from reality.
Anna: And what if they never find a cure, tony? That woman believes that she is renee dumonde with every fiber of her being. And god help me, in spite of her lousy impersonation, she gets under my skin like– like only the real renee could.
Tony: But, anna, you have to be the rational one herE. She’s a scared, fragile young woman who needs our help.
Anna: Yeah, well, that scared, fragile young woman wants to take away my husband. And I will not just be passive and polite about it.
Tony: Oh, for heaven’s sake, anna! I’m not gonna go to bed with sarah horton. And the fact that you have the slightest fear that I would is not only insulting to my loyalty, my integrity, but also my intelligence. So for god’s sake, just trust me, will you? And go homE.
Anna: Fine. I’ll go home. Yes. And I’ll spend my evening wondering why my husband is spending his evening with some other womaN. And a lunatic at that.
Xander: Gwen, I realize how difficult this must be for you.
Gwen: I fell in love with you, xander. And you completely changed my life. Now, it feels like you are slipping awaY.
Xander: I’m not slipping away; I’m right here. Come oN. Listen to me, gwen. You and I found each other when the whole world turned its back on us, and we held on to each other. That kind of connection doesn’t come along often.
Gwen: I’m sure our connection just pales in comparison to the epic love story of xander cook and sarah horton. Hm? The devilish rogue and the noble, beautiful doctor.
Xander: Don’t do that. Don’t make light of what you and I sharE. It’s every bit as real as what sarah and I shared. I love you. Gwen, you have to believe that.
Gwen: I want to believe that. I really want to believe that, but it’s very difficult when, in practically the same breath, you are asking me to help you get your old fiancée back. Well, I am your fiancée now. I am your fiancée, xander. And you are still avoiding the question. What happens if–when– when sarah gets better? Will you still want to marry me? Or will you want to marry her?
Tony: Oh, you’re back from the touR. How was it?
Sarah as renee: Oh, lovely, if you like looking at flowers and twigs in the darK. I’m very happy to see you got rid of anna.
Tony: Ah, yes, she left.
Sarah as renee: Hm. Maggie, I really must thank you for your hospitality. And I promise that tony and i will not overstay our welcomE. As soon as our lawyer extracts anna fredericks from the dimera mansion, then we will reclaim what’s ours. Now, if you don’t mind, tony and I would like some time alonE.
Maggie: Ah– [Clears throat] Well, okay. Um, I mean, if– if it’s all right with tony.
Sarah as renee: If it’s all right with him? Why would you think it isn’t?
Tony: Why, indeed? It’s fine with me.
Maggie: Okay then. Well, good night. Hope all goes well.
Sarah as renee: Thank god. I thought she was gonna suggest a round of hot cocoa. When i have something much better in minD.
Brady: Here you go.
Chloe: Thank you. And thank you for letting me wait here with you. The idea of running into my dad at the salem inn right now–
Brady: You’re afraid he’s gonna blame you for leo and chad, right?
Chloe: Ugh, you should’ve seen how upset he was with me earlier. I mean, he accused me of lying and scheming, and he’s right.
Brady: You’re doing it all for his own good, okay?
Chloe: Well, the way he looks at it is that I’m interfering, and it’s none of my business.
Brady: I know, chloe. He’s ticked off right now. But right now he is actually learning who leo stark really is. And eventually, he’s gonna be eternally grateful to you for loving him enough to look out for him.
Chloe: I hope you’re righT.
Brady: I am right. I know I’m grateful to you.
Brady: Why? Let me see. You really have to ask? You have been there for me, right by my side through my worst moments and my best moments, and you’re my constant. I can’t imagine my life without you.
Craig: So you want all three of us to–
Leo: Have sex. Yes. It was the funniest thing. I was having dinner by my lonesome. There’s a knock at the door. Voila. It’s chadwick. Three sheets to the wind and begging me to sleep with him.
Chad: I didn’t beg.
Leo: He begged. I almost felt embarrassed for the guY. Obviously, my instinct was to kick him out. There is only one man for me, and that is you, craig wesleY. But he was so insistent, so desperate to get into our bed. And then I started thinking about you and how new you are to all of this and I thought, “wait a minute. Chadwick could be like a present.”
Chad: A present?
Leo: Wrapped up in a bow. A gift from me to the man I lovE. Okay, no, no, no. You don’t have to say anything. But I promise you will thank me later.
Craig: I just–I never–
Leo: Of course you haven’T. Of course you haven’T. That’s what you have me for, to help you explorE. And I promise this will bring us closer together, if that is even possible. So gentlemen, what do you say? We ready for our three-way?
Brady: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What’s wrong?
Chloe: Uh, nothing. I’m just– what if your dad walks in like he did last time?
Brady: Chloe, he’s probably asleep.
Chloe: Okay, what about marlena? Or what if they want a snack or a glass of water or something?
Brady: Then they come out here and they catch us making out on the couch like a couple of teenagers, big deal.
Chloe: I would be very embarrassed.
Brady: Okay, okay. Well, you know, there’s my room.
Chloe: Oh, your room?
Brady: I want to be with you. I want to be with you noW. But if i’m moving too fast–
Chloe: No, you’re not.
Craig: I–I have never thought of something like this, but I have heard that there are couples who do this–
Leo: Sounds like a yes to me!
Chad: Yep, nope, that’s it. I’m out. That’s it. This thing–I’m out.
Leo: What’s the problem? What’s the problem? I thought you wanted to hook up.
Chad: No, not with the both of you.
Leo: Why not? Don’t you find craig attractive?
Chad: No! I mean, sorry. YeS. You– you’re a–you’re a fine– you’re a fine-looking per–man. It’s just that I–
Leo: It’s just what, chad? It’s not what you expected, because you and your wife set this whole thing up to trick me into cheating on my boyfriend?
Abigail: Anna! Oh, my god! Are you all right?
Anna: Oh, I’m sorry.
Abigail: What is it? Is everything okay?
Anna: With me, yes. I’m great. Perfect. I was just clearing my throat.
Abigail: No. You were screaming. So what, did something happen with tony?
Anna: Do not mention that man’s name to me!
Abigail: This has to do with sarah, right?
Anna: No, this is about renee dumonde, who came between tony and me almost 40 years ago. And silly me, I thought her being dead would mean she’s out of our liveS. But no such luck. That woman is back and after my husband again.
Tony: Sarah–renee, I hope you didn’t think that–
Sarah as renee: Oh, i know. I know, that annoying maggie horton could come back any moment wanting to show me her figurines collections. So let’s go upstairs to our bedroom.
Tony: Didn’t maggie tell you? I asked for separate rooms.
Sarah as renee: Separate rooms? Why would you do that?
Tony: Because of anna.
Sarah as renee: Anna? I thought that you were done with that woman. I thought that you wanted to be with me. Isn’t– isn’t that why you’re here?
Xander: GweN. When we got together, I thought sarah had dumped me for her ex, that she– that she didn’t want me anymore, she hated me.
Gwen: Now we know that that wasn’t the case.
Xander: No, it wasn’T. She was drugged and kidnapped.
Gwen: And presumably still very much in love with you. And that changes everything, doesn’t it? For you, for us.
Xander: I don’t know. I– I wish I did. And I do not blame you for being upset. But I have to see this through. I have to at least try and help sarah. Look, don’t worry about coming with me to statesville. I shouldn’t have asked. I’ll go alonE.
Tony: Of course I want to be with you.
Sarah as renee: Then why are you so concerned about anna?
Tony: Because anna and i are still married. And if she finds out that i’ve been unfaithful, she’ll use it in the divorce. She’ll take me to the cleaners.
Sarah as renee: So? Who cares? I’m rich enough for the both of us. Or have you forgotten that i am the sole heir to stefano’s estate?
Tony: Oh. Oh, yeah. Yeah. There is that.
Sarah as renee: You see? Money’s not gonna be a problem for us. So let’s go hit the sack.
Abigail: Well, sarah must have really absorbed what she read in renee’s diary.
Anna: Boy, did she. And all of the diaries to get ahold oF. Couldn’t she have found, I don’t know, maybe dorothy parker’s diary and turned herself into somebody who made us all laugH. But no, she had to become renee dumonde, bitch on wheels, who never gave tony and me a moment’s peace. And now I fear this version of her won’t either.
Abigail: I’m so sorry.
Anna: Yeah, well, hey, I guess I just have to suck it up, right? Especially since tony is taking the high road and– and trying to help. But abigail, it makes me so angry and jealous and all sorts of feelings that I don’t want to havE.
Abigail: Well, hopefully you won’t have to feel them for very lonG.
Anna: I hope so too, obviouslY. And I’m sorry, enough about me. What’s going with you? Where’s chad tonight?
Abigail: Oh, he’s– he’s out right now. He–well– he is pretending to want to have sex with someone he despises in order to help out our friends.
Abigail: It’s a long story. I don’t think you really need to know it.
Anna: Okay. Wow.
[Chuckles] Wow. If stefano could see his sons now, selflessly helping others instead of plotting world domination.
Leo: Kind of a scream, really, you and the wifey giving me a front row seat to that little act of yours. “You haven’t touched me in months, chad!” And for her encore, greta garbo–i mean abigail dimera came to me and begged me not to sleep with chad no matter how badly he wanted it. Kind of overplayed it, chewed the scenery, as they saY.
Chad: Shut up, abigail’s a great actress.
Leo: It’s hard to believe, but chad has never appreciated all that I have to offer. So your plan was a bust from the beginning. Unless, of course, you want to stay. We could absolutely salvage the eveninG.
Chad: Get out of my way.
Craig: Wait a minute. You–you don’t know me. You have no stake in whether I stay with leo or not, so why are you doing this? Why–why do you care? What’s in it for you?
Leo: Maybe deep down, chad was hoping something really would happen tonight.
Chad: No, what I was hoping for was to show you what a dirtbag he is. Look, craig, I’m really sorry about all this. I did it as a favor for friends, people I care about, who care about what happens to you so much that they would be willing to do anything to try to open your eyes about this con artist. Look, if you’re not willing– if you’re not willing to see who he really is, then it’s on you.
Leo: Said the guy who knocked up his children’s nanny.
Chad: Get out while you still can.
Craig: Damn it.
Leo: Who are you calling?
Craig: My daughter. Obviously, she has something to do with this.
Sarah as renee: I’ve dreamt of this for so long, tony. Waking up with the sun to make love.
Tony: Uh, yes. Wait.
Sarah as renee: What?
Tony: Wait. Well, it’s not actually about the moneY. It’s anna and her temper. She–oh, she gets so jealous. If she finds out about this– and she will, she’ll drag this out in the court forever. And she’ll– well, neither of us wants that, now do we?
Sarah as renee: We’ve already waited for years.
Tony: Yes, but if we can be patient just a little longer, oh, we can have whatever we want.
Sarah as renee: Patience isn’t exactly my strong suit. But if it means that we can get rid of anna fredericks for good, I’ll try.
Tony: [Chuckles] That’s my girl.
Sarah as renee: [Chuckles]
Anna: Well, I’m off to bed. Not that i will get much sleep, thinking about sarah chasing tony around the kiriakis mansion.
[Gasps] It’s from tony. He says he never loved another woman as much as he loves me. And he’s counting the seconds until he can return to me.
Abigail: See? I told you, you have nothing to worry about. Now, if I could just hear from my husband, huh?
Chad: Great. Hi.
Gwen: Hey. You all right? You look a bit, um–
Chad: I’m fine. Thanks. Never better.
Xander: Oh, hey, I’m planning to make a trip to statesville to see rolf. I was just wondering if you have any, you know, pointers on how to handle him right now.
Chad: Is this about finding out if he has the antidote for the drug that kristen gave to sarah?
Xander: You know?
Chad: I dO. Actually, abby and i were already planning to visit hiM.
Xander: Chad, that’s greaT. That’s fantastic.
Chad: Yeah, well, just so you know, we’re doing this for sarah. We couldn’t help chloe, so maybe at least we can help her.
Chad: Never mind.
Leo: You can’t call chloe, not while you’re this upset.
Craig: Why are you so calm? Chloe and her friends have done nothing but harass you, and now they–they send this chad guy to seduce you? I’m sorry you had to go through this.
Leo: I’m sorry too. You have no idea how much.
Xander: Oh, this is– this is great news. If anyone can get rolf to give up the antidote, it’s stefano’s baby boy. This is just the break we needed– I’ve done it again, haven’t I? I’m sorry, gwen.
Gwen: No, it’s okay. Really, it’s fine. I’m glad that chad can help you.
Xander: Do you mean that?
Gwen: I dO. And if for some reason chad can’t get through to rolf, then i’ll give it a go.
Gwen: Not for sarah. But I would do it for you.
[Soft dramatic music]
Brady: That– that was worth the waiT.
[Cellphone beeps] Ignore it. Ignore it.
Chloe: No, no, what if it’s one of the kiddos?
[Sighs] Oh. It’s from chad.
Brady: What happened?
Chloe: Ugh, leo happeneD.
Brady: What do you mean?
Chloe: I guess leo figured out it was a trap.
Brady: Oh, damn it. Really?
Chloe: [Sighs] Yeah. He tried to cover his tracks by texting my dad and pretending like he wanted him to walk in on him and chad. Oh, my god. My dad’s gonna be furious at me. And this whole plan with leo didn’t even work. Ugh.
Abigail: You’re homE. How did it go?
Chad: Well, if you consider almost having your first gay threesome a win, then it was a smashing success.
Craig: I’m sorry, i hope you don’t think I’m a prude.
Leo: For being hesitant about a threesome? Well, then i’m a prude too because I am strictly a one-man kind of guy. And you’re all the man i need. I only threw it out there to call chad’s bluff.
Craig: We should sue his ass.
Leo: Something like that.
Craig: Yeah, I–I– I just don’t– I just don’t think you should have to endure all this because you chose to be with me. I’m–i’m sick of it.
Leo: I am too. But it’s obvious chloe’s not gonna stop.
Craig: No, it doesn’t look that way.
Leo: I just wish that there was some way I could convince her that this is the real deal, that I am a new man because of you and because of our love, and I am in this for the long haul.
Craig: There is something you can do.
Craig: Marry me.
