Days of Our Lives Transcript

Sonny: Okay. So the double wedding ended with nobody getting married?
Chad: That’s right. We had one bride, three grooms, and not a single “I do.” It was a very salem wedding.
Sonny: I’m sorry to stop you, but, chad, can we– can we get back to leo, please?
Chad: You mean his devastation…
Chad: His utter defeat, his total public humiliation?
Sonny: Oh, that it is, like, the most incredible freudenschade ever. I just–I wish I could have seen what his face looked like when you showed up with his first husband.
Leo: The face looked just like this: Ready to kill.
[Knock at door] Go away.
[Urgent knocking] Whoever it is, go away.
Nancy: Craig, it’s me, nancy.
Craig: Are you here for your “I told you so” moment? You deserve it. God knows I do.
Xander: Hi, maggie.
Maggie: Xander. Oh, my goodness. It’s so good to see you, aw.
Xander: It’s good to see you too. I heard you were back. How’s sarah?
Maggie: Well, she’s settling into the clinic. Everyone there is– they’re wonderful, but… there hasn’t been any change.
Xander: I’m sorry. Must have been hard leaving her like that.
Maggie: Well, they said it was better that I do. Wait a minute. What are you doing here? I thought you and gwen would be on your honeymoon.
Xander: Yeah, well… there was no honeymoon because there was no wedding.
[Laughter] But we should go get those tuxes fitted. I don’t wanna be late for my own wedding.
Gwen: Oh, yeah. So… hey, the next time that I see you…
Xander: I’ll be making an honest woman of you.
Gwen: [Laughs] Yeah, we’ll see about that.
[Door clicks open] Xander?
Jack: Guess again.
Jennifer: Yeah. Thanks, shawn. And please let me know if there’s anything that I can do to help. Yeah, and we’ll just be praying that ciara is found safe and very soon. All right, bye-bye.
Abigail: Do the police have any leads at all?
Jennifer: No, no. This world has gone mad. Ciara’s missing. Christian maddox is on the loose. Allie is possessed by the devil.
Abigail: You know, maybe this isn’t really a good time.
Jennifer: No, honey, I’m sorry. No, what’s going on?
Abigail: It’s nothing.
Jennifer: No, you came here for a reason. Really, what is it?
Gwen: Just so you know, your precious grandmother, I killed that old bitch on purpose.
Jennifer: Abigail, what is it?
Abigail: It’s about gwen.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Maggie: Xander, what happened?
Xander: Look, let’s just– let’s sit down, okay?
Maggie: Honey, are you all right? You were so determined to get married.
Xander: Maggie, I just– I couldn’t go through with it. There were– there were things about gwen that I didn’t know.
Maggie: Like what?
Xander: [Sighs] It’s about sarah.
Gwen: Well, I sure wasn’t expecting to see you. The last thing you said to me was that you were done with me.
Jack: This was jennifer’s idea.
Gwen: Oh, come on. Don’t joke. Nobody’s that wonderful.
Jack: Don’t you dare. Don’t you dare say anything about her.
Gwen: You’re right. You’re right. It’s a force of habit. Always attack, never admit. Sorry.
[Sighs] Yeah, like you’re ever gonna believe I’m sorry, like you’re ever gonna believe a single word that comes out of my mouth again. This is true, though. Besides xander, I– I cannot even bear to imagine what last night must have been like for you.
Jack: Wasn’t “father of the bride,” was it? I forgave you over and over.
Gwen: You forgave the unforgivable, and I threw all that forgiveness back in your face.
Jack: [Sighs] Jennifer says– last night when I told you I was done with you, I meant it. I hate what you did. But jennifer said–says I won’t be able to pull it off. There’s nothing I can do about the fact that you’re my daughter. I can’t be done with you.
Gwen: Well, my mum managed to pull it off. Why can’t you? I mean, god, haven’t I given you enough bloody reasons?
Jack: More than enough. When I think about what you did to abigail, to my family, I can, in some weird, dark deveraux way, understand why you did it, but this, what you did to sarah, is unfathomable.
Gwen: Again, I don’t expect you to believe me, but the reason I did that– and I have a hard time believing it myself, but… the reason I did that…
Jack: What? You gonna tell me the devil made you do it?
Gwen: In a way, yes.
Chad: How did you get in here?
Leo: I told harold I was the new french maid. Does it matter how I got in here? Did you think you could do what you did without one final confrontation, like I was just gonna slink away?
Sonny: Certainly hope so.
Leo: At least she had the kishkes to show up at the wedding and look me in the eye as she shattered my dreams, while you, no doubt, were cowering in the kiriakis fruit cellar, terrified of the forces you’d unleashed.
Sonny: I had a work call. Otherwise–oh, yeah, no, I wouldn’t have missed it.
Leo: A work call.
[Mockingly] “This is sonny. I’m 6’3″ with a swimmer’s build.” Please.
Chad: Leo, don’t you think the moral outrage would pack a bigger punch if you were an innocent victim and not a– well, how should I put it– a manipulative, conniving little worm?
Leo: Oh, you and the wife, the moral police, the jim and tammy faye of salem blowing up not one marriage but two in the name of middle-class morality.
Sonny: Okay, I think both the upper class and the lower class would agree that, you know, bigamy and kidnapping are, um, wrong.
Leo: Okay, you keep telling yourself that this all stems from your desire to see justice done. I’ve known this entire time what your little crusade was all about, and it’s rather pathetic.
Chad: Okay. I’ll bite. What’s it all about?
Leo: Obviously sonny wants me back.
Craig: Go ahead. Enjoy yourself. You were right. Leo is a gold digger, and I was an utter fool. Oh, wait, nancy. Please, don’t close that door. By now, all salem knows what an idiot I was. Go ahead. Be as loud as you want. Rub it in. Remind me that you told me that I would regret the day that I let leo stark into my life.
Nancy: It’s all true, but that’s not why I’m here.
Craig: Oh, really? Then why are you here?
Nancy: To say I’m sorry.
Gwen: If I try to explain it, it will just sound like I’m trying to justify what I did, and that’s not possible.
Jack: No, it’s not.
Gwen: Last night, I found myself sitting in a cell– the first night of many, many nights I’d be sitting in a cell. And… if I closed my eyes, I would see xander staring at me, disgusted. And I’d see you staring at me, repulsed. So I didn’t close my eyes again all night. I just tried to understand, how did I get here? How did I– how did I make it impossible for the only two people that I care about in the entire world– how did I make it so impossible for them to care about me? You are… probably the most forgiving person imaginable, and yet… you came here because you won’t, you… can’t give up on being a father to me.
[Sighs] Yet you can’t even look at me.
Jack: You’re the one not looking at me.
Gwen: You’re right. Last night, I thought about all the things I did to you… and to your family and to my sister and to… xander… and sarah and her mother, and… I realized I did all that to get what I wanted. But I have nothing I want, nothing.
[Sighs] And then… I sort of had this “come to jesus” moment where I realized that all those things I did, sort of like my mum putting the spike in her arm, when someone does something over and over and over again to ensure that they stay the same miserable human being. And, you know, I’ve been telling myself for months that kristen dimera blackmailed me into doing what I was doing, but really… she was just like my mother’s drug dealer. And just like my mum did… I put a spike in my own arm.
Sonny: [Laughs] I want you back? Okay, that’s like saying, “oh, gosh, oh, I wish my ibs would flare up again.”
Chad: That–you know, sonny, I don’t know. Maybe he’s onto something. People say there’s a fine line between love and hate.
Sonny: Yeah, idiotic people. You know what? I will never forget what you did to me, and I am ecstatic that I got to play a part in stopping you from doing it to anyone else.
Leo: What I have with craig is nothing like the dreary time I had with you. I love craig. I never even liked you. As you may recall, I was paid to go out with you. It was a job– one I did inadequately, I might add, because you’re not my type, and you’re a d-minus in bed.
Sonny: [Laughs] What?
Leo: The only reason you didn’t flunk is because I gave you extra credit for effort. He may have lacked finesse, but his enthusiasm was exhausting.
Sonny: Oh, that is a crock, and you know it.
Leo: I have it on tape.
Sonny: Yeah, I’ve seen those tapes, and you were very into it.
Leo: I was faking it.
Sonny: Okay, then what about the moaning?
Sonny: The yelling?
Sonny: The panting?
Sonny: The screaming?
Leo: Fake. I faked it all. Sorry, babe.
Craig: You’re sorry. What do you have to be sorry for? You didn’t do anything, nancy.
Nancy: Craig, that’s not what I meant. I mean I’m sorry that this happened to you.
Nancy: Really. Look. I know what it’s like to love someone so much… that you ignore the abundant evidence that’s right in front of your eyes. It happened to me, and now it’s happened to my best friend.
Xander: Of all people, I should have been able to see through gwen’s lies.
Maggie: I’m not blaming you for what gwen did, but you did leave sarah behind the moment you found out that she wasn’t going to immediately recover.
Maggie: I’m sorry. You know…
[Sighs] I’m not being fair.
Xander: No, I– I think you’re being fair and accurate.
Maggie: No, I gave you my blessing… even if I really didn’t mean it. I shouldn’t be taking out my anger at gwen on you. I know that you have every right to get on with your life. And anyway, this isn’t the time for recriminations. We need to figure out what we should do next. I mean, now that sarah wasn’t given the right antidote but some dose of the original drug… there’s a chance that that antidote might work.
Xander: You’re right.
Maggie: I’m gonna call kayla.
Xander: No, I already have. Kayla thinks there’s a good chance that the antidote can still work. I asked chad to reach out to rolf again.
Maggie: Well, that’s wonderful.
Xander: No, not really. Rolf managed to get himself into trouble with some chemistry experiment gone wrong. He’s in solitary confinement.
Maggie: Oh, we have gotta get ahold of that drug.
Xander: You know what? I have an idea.
Jack: When kristen blackmailed you, told you what she’d done to sarah, didn’t you see that you had to tell xander, tell maggie?
Gwen: If I told xander the truth, I knew I’d lose him. I knew that he loved sarah more than he loved me.
Jack: No, you didn’t know that. You feared that. What you should have known was that you were carrying all the risk. Didn’t you see back then what could have happened to you and ava if you’d been caught? Breaking a convicted prisoner out of prison carries a hefty minimum sentence.
Gwen: So does murder.
Jack: What are you talking about?
Jennifer: Abigail, you’re scaring me. Whatever it is, just tell me.
Abigail: It’s about grandma. Oh, god, it’s hard to even say it. This–gwen said to me– these are her exact words– “I killed that bitch on purpose.” My asthma felt anything but normal.
Leo: The only reason I had anything to do at all with you was money.
Sonny: Are you kidding? That’s the exact reason you went after craig.
Leo: In the beginning, maybe, but I fell in love with him. And now he hates me because of the two of you.
Chad: Does it ever occur to you to take responsibility for your own actions, leo? Craig hates you because you lied to him over and over again.
Sonny: Yeah. You know what? And you wouldn’t even be legally married to him even if we hadn’t done anything. You know, you could have just come clean with him, told him you had a husband.
Leo: Why do you care? It’s not like craig was your friend. You think you were doing him a favor? Now he’s just as miserable as I am.
Leo: Okay, trust me, leo, it’s not that hard to get over you.
Leo: That is not true. And deep down, craig knows that what we had is real, or I never would’ve signed that prenup. Oh, god, I hate that word. But I never would’ve signed it if all I cared about was taking him to the cleaners.
Chad: But what are you doing here? You’re trying to convince the wrong guys.
Leo: You’re right. But since you were so intent on making me pay, I want you both to know that now it’s my turn.
Craig: I still can’t believe leo has a husband.
Nancy: Oh, he does look good in a dress. Too soon? I’m sorry, he does. But out of that dress, he’s not as good-looking as you are. You are still quite a catch, craig wesley.
Craig: Thank you, sweetheart. Right back at you.
Jennifer: Gwen told you that she killed my mother on purpose?
Abigail: That’s right.
Jennifer: No, honey, she kept denying it. She–she insisted that it was an accident. Why would she change her story now?
Jack: Why are you talking about murder?
Jack: Answer me. What did you mean, what you just said, “so does murder”?
Gwen: Just–I was just saying that like abigail pointed out, I planned to switch those syringes. It was premeditated. And for all I knew, that– a second dose of that drug could have very well killed sarah.
Jack: Thank god it didn’T.
Gwen: Even as it is, though, I did– I did take sarah’s life. The sarah that xander knew and fell in love with no longer exists. Go on. Say it.
Jack: You knew what that drug did to abigail, not to mention what it did to sarah when kristen gave it to her the first time.
Gwen: Yet I did it with full knowledge and malice aforethought. Now you wish I never existed.
Jack: No, I don’T.
Gwen: Yes, of course you do. How could you not? Xander does. Before, you said that I didn’t know that xander loved sarah more than he loved me, but he did. Yes, he told me he loved me. But then once sarah was in the picture, we both understood the unspoken.
Gwen: Xander’s the only man that I’ve ever loved, but I’m not– I’m not the only woman that he ever loved. I’m not even the woman that he loved best. Do you know how that feels?
Jack: I do.
Gwen: Xander left me hanging for weeks, waiting to see if sarah would recover, and… this is no excuse, but I think, during those weeks… something inside me hardened. I just kept telling myself over and over and– and over again, “I cannot lose xander. I cannot.” But now it’s all my fault that he’s gone and I’ve lost him. And I don’t even know how I can live with myself.
[Door clicks open]
Need long-lasting freshness?
Gwen: Xander, you’re here.
Xander: Yeah. Trust me, this isn’t a romantic rendezvous.
Gwen: How could it be? Go on, then. Let me have it, both barrels.
Xander: Not here to let you have it or to hear any excuses. I just– I have a question. What did you do with the real antidote?
Gwen: Right. You want me to help you get sarah back.
Xander: I wanted to give you a chance to act like a human being.
Gwen: Why start now?
Jack: Don’t do this. What nobody–especially xander doesn’t need right now is a tired, pathetic tough-guy act.
Xander: It’s all right, jack. I don’t care how she acts. I just– I just want an answer. Do you know where it is? Did you pour it down the sink, throw it away?
Gwen: No. I still have it.
Xander: Great. So… what’s it gonna take to get you to tell me where it is?
Abigail: I’ve been wondering the same thing. I mean… you know, gwen kept denying that she killed grandma even when I was threatening to drug her out of her ever-loving mind if she didn’t admit it.
Jennifer: Right, but she never wavered.
Abigail: No, she didn’T. So either she was lying back then, or she’s lying now. And I don’t know. Maybe I shouldn’t have told you what she said at the wedding, because the fact of the matter is, I’m still not sure if it’s true.
Nancy: I have to admit that a couple weeks ago, the idea of you getting dumped at the altar, well, it would’ve made me the happiest woman in the world. I would’ve said you got what you deserved.
Craig: Yeah, I suppose I did.
Nancy: No, no, craig, you’re a good man who just made mistakes. You’ve gone through a lot to get where you are today, and… sweetheart, you deserve to be happy.
Craig: So do you, nancy.
[Chuckles] You know, last night is really quite a blur to me, but I–
[Laughs] I think I remember you saying something about having met someone and going out on a date.
Nancy: Oh, yeah. We were supposed to go out for dinner last night, but he blew me off.
Craig: I’m sorry.
Nancy: [Sighs] Ain’t we a pair?
Chad: Don’t be so melodramatic.
Leo: Melodramatic? I am your worst nightmare. You will rue the day you screwed matthew cooper, aka leo stark.
Chad: [Laughs] This is me struggling to keep a straight face.
Leo: I will leave you with a parting shot.
Sonny: The hell was that? We women are in the know about everything.
Jennifer: I understand her saying it was an accident, lying about that because she was trying to protect herself. But I don’t understand why she would lie about saying it was deliberate. It doesn’t make any sense.
Abigail: I don’t know. I don’t know, but it was the way that she said it, the words that she chose. So I don’t know, maybe after what I did to her at the wedding, she was just trying to torment me all over again or something.
Jennifer: Well, there’s only one way to find out.
Jack: Gwen, you just spent the last half hour telling me how much you love xander. Now look at him. He’s miserable. He’s suffering. For god’s sake, just tell him where the antidote is.
Gwen: You know, I was just thinking–
Jack: There’s nothing to think about. You have the chance to maybe, maybe undo the harm that you have done. For god’s sake, just tell him.
Gwen: I was just thinking that’s interesting, how you put that. It’s really interesting, ’cause you said, “what’s it gonna take to get you to tell me where it is?” It’s like it didn’t even occur to you to just ask me for it, because telling you would’ve been the right thing to do, yeah? But you know me well enough by now… to know that I don’t do anything unless there’s something in it for me. You don’t think there’s one good bone in my body, do you? You know, you’re right. There isn’T. So what’s it gonna take? Well, I know what I want. I want you back. Deal?
Gwen: God, you hate me.
Xander: Yeah, that’s right.
Gwen: [Sighs] You hate me so much, you can’t even– you can’t even bloody lie to protect your precious sarah.
Jack: No, no, no. Don’t–gwen, please, don’t put the spike back in your arm.
Gwen: Well, sorry to put you through that, darling. Just needed to know where we stand.
Jack: God, no. No.
Gwen: You know, I will say, though, through all the lies… I did stay true to one thing. I did, I still, and I will always love you.
[Sighs] I will do whatever I can to help you.
Sonny: [Laughs mockingly]
“Aprs moi, le déluge.” He doesn’t even speak french, you know? He just likes sounding like edith piaf.
Chad: Wasn’t piaf. It was louis xv. “After me, the deluge.”
Sonny: Oh, come on, look, he probably just spent all morning googling threats in french and then he found that. He’s been practicing it all morning, I’m sure. Oh.
Sonny: Well, as far as threats go, it’s actually a pretty good one. A nihilistic expression of indifference forecasting ruination.
Chad: Oh, that’s great. That’s just what I need.
Sonny: What? You’re not worried, are you? Come on, he’s not the king of france. He’s leo.
Chad: Yeah, exactly. He’s leo, self-aggrandizing, petty, vindictive little drama queen.
Sonny: Okay, that’s actually a pretty good point.
Chad: And now that vindictive little drama queen is laser focused on me. I thought the whole point of bringing him down was to– was to get him out of our lives so we didn’t have to worry about him anymore.
Sonny: Okay, maybe I didn’t think this whole thing through.
Chad: God only knows what he’s gonna do next.
Sonny: I’m sorry, do you have this thing set to news alerts for news about you?
Chad: Yeah, it’s a work thing.
Sonny: But you’re not working. Okay, well, there is news, and it is about you.
Nancy: So what are you gonna do next?
Craig: Oh, nancy, I have absolutely no idea.
Nancy: Been there, done that. Craig, let me ask you… are you absolutely sure that it’s over between you and leo?
Craig: Am I sure? Nancy, the guy– the guy was gonna swindle me out of everything I own. He wanted to marry me. He was already married to someone else.
Nancy: Yes, but, craig, he is the guy who, after 30-plus years, brought you out of the closet. Honey, that was life-changing for you.
Craig: Are you– are you sticking up for him?
Nancy: No. I’m thinking about you. Craig… he really got to you.
Craig: That is an understatement.
Nancy: But, craig, what if he’s telling the truth that he fell in love with you for real?
Craig: [Laughs] I cannot even believe you are saying this.
Nancy: Craig… I, more than anyone else, knows what it’s like being with you, you know, getting to know you, learning what kind of man you are. Sweetheart, that leads to love.
Nancy: Who knows, craig? Maybe you got to him too.
[Knock at door]
Craig: That’s probably chloe. She’s been calling and texting all morning.
[Sighs] Leo. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.
Chad: What news?
Sonny: Brace yourself.
Leo: Can we– oh, I didn’t realize you had company. Hello, nancy.
Leo: Can we have a moment alone?
Nancy: We were just in the middle of a conversation.
Craig: Thanks for coming over, talking. Means the world to me. But… I think I have to take care of this.
Nancy: [Sighs] Well… if you need backup, call me.
Craig: What the hell do you want?
Maggie: Did you see gwen?
Xander: Yeah, she– she had this stashed in our hotel room the entire time.
Maggie: [Gasps] She told you? Oh, thank god.
Xander: Yeah. Maybe we can save sarah yet.
Gwen: I suppose xander found the antidote by now.
Jack: You did the right thing.
Gwen: I know. Do you think it will work? Do you think sarah will be sarah again?
Jack: I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see.
Gwen: I hope it does work. Truly, I really do. Again, I don’t expect you to believe me when I say this, but I am sorry for what I did to sarah.
Jennifer: So you’re sorry for what you did to sarah? Are you sorry for what you did to my mother? Are you sorry that you murdered her?
