Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Eric: You need my help? Why would I do anything to help you after you blew up my marriage?
Xander: I’m not asking for me, eric. I’m asking for sarah.
Xander: Kayla gave sarah the antidote to rolf’s drug and it worked. She’s completely back to normal, except–
Eric: Except what?
Xander: For some reason, she doesn’t know that– your daughter, mickey–
Eric: What? What doesn’t she know?
Xander: That your baby died.
Nicole: You’re here to get your baby?
Nicole: Uh, what baby?
Sarah: Mickey, of course. Xander said that she was here.
Nicole: Xander told you that mickey was here? With me?
Sarah: Uh, well, no. No. He said that she was with eric. And since you and eric live together, I just– I assumed she was here.
Nicole: Listen, I don’t know what xander told you or why, but–
Sarah: Nicole, it’s okay. You don’t have to pretend. I know.
Nicole: Know what?
Sarah: I know that you told eric that mickey is his daughter.
Lani: So that’s it? You get to make all the decisions and I just– I have to go along with them?
Paulina: When it comes to protecting you from a murder charge, hell, yes.
Lani: Okay, paulina, I need you to listen.
Paulina: Look, no, lani. I am done arguing about this. Now, I am going–I’m going to plead guilty. And you, you’re going to live a long, happy life with your family.
Lani: No. No. No. I–I’m sorry, paulina, but I–I can’t do it. I can’t just let you take the rap for something that I did.
Abe: It couldn’t be.
Eli: Everything you just said–I mean, it–it–
Abe: It doesn’t–it doesn’t mean that–
Eli: I pray it doesn’t, abe. But we at least have to ask the question. Is lani possibly the one that shot tr?
Abe: If she did, then that could mean–
Eli: Paulina’s innocent. But she’s covering for her daughter.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Chanel: I was–was just on my way to go visit mama down at the police station. I-I thought she could use a pick-me-up.
Julie: She could use more than that. She deserves a medal for what she did.
Chanel: Agreed. But all I can offer her right now is a whole lot of sugar.
Julie: And your love and your support. And I know that’s going to mean the world to her. Well, I guess I have to find another bakery. Though their treats won’t be nearly as delicious as yours.
Chanel: I–I pretty much packed up the entire store, so take these.
Julie: Are you sure?
Chanel: Of course. And give eli a hug for me.
Julie: Well, thank you, darling; that’s very kind.
Chanel: You’re very welcome.
Julie: When you see your mother, from me, tell her to hang in there. Because every right-thinking person knows she did nothing wrong. Bye, sweetie.
Abe: Paulina didn’t kill ray. She’s protecting lani.
Eli: We don’t know that for sure.
Abe: Some pretty big holes in her story.
Eli: Yes, but we– abe, you and I both know that we cannot jump to any conclusions. But if there’s more to this story, I can’t be blindsided by it.
Abe: What are you thinking?
Eli: I need to talk to my wife.
Paulina: We’ve been over this. Now, if you confess, you’ll lose everything. Your career, your– your husband, your kids.
Lani: And what about everything you would lose?
Paulina: Well, I might not even be locked up. I told you, I’m going to say it was an act of self-defense. A jury will believe me.
Lani: You don’t know that. And you shouldn’t be facing a jury, paulina. You didn’t shoot anyone.
Paulina: Well, I may not have pulled the trigger. But for what happened, it is entirely–entirely on me.
[Sighs] I’m the one who made the mistake of trusting ray coates, bringing him close again.
Lani: You thought he’d changed.
Paulina: Well, I should have known better. I did know better. Lani, please. Just let me do this. I–I will be exonerated.
Lani: Even if you are, paulina, I would still know what I did. And how–how am I supposed to do my job like that? How do I face my husband? How do I talk to my children about courage and–and honesty? I would be a complete hypocrite. No. I don’t– I don’t want to live like that. I can’t live like that. Do you hear me? I–I need to tell rafe the truth right now.
From prom dresses
Eli: Lani just went to the station to see paulina.
Abe: She’ll be back pretty soon.
Eli: I don’t think it can wait.
Abe: You’re not thinking of going down there to see her, are you?
Julie: Ah! There you are. Wow, eli. I was so worried when I went into your room and you weren’t there. And then a nurse told me I would find you here.
Eli: Yeah, I’m–I’m sorry about that, grandma.
Julie: What are you doing out of bed?
Eli: I–I just–I just came to say hi to abe and see what trouble he’s been into since I’ve been asleep.
Julie: Mm. Hello, abraham.
Abe: Hey, julie.
Julie: Will you excuse me while I chastise my grandson? The last time you got out of bed, you collapsed. You remember that? I do.
Eli: Okay, well, I’m feeling much better now, grandma.
Julie: Wonderful. That’s just wonderful, but you just woke up from a coma, darling. And I’m sure that your doctors didn’t mean for you to wander around the hospital making social calls. So let me escort you back to your room where you can rest. And look, I have– I have a box of bear claws with your name on it.
Eli: Thank you, grandma, but I–I’m sorry. I–I got to run.
Julie: Eli. What could possibly be so urgent?
Paulina: Lani, no. You can’t tell rafe the truth.
Lani: I’m sorry, paulina, but it is not up to you.
Paulina: The hell it isn’t! No, lani, I won’t let you do this.
Chanel: What are you two arguing about?
Paulina: Uh, well, lani was just blaming herself for not seeing through ray sooner. And I told her– I was telling her, I– you know, I was fooled too. No need to shoulder the blame alone. What she needs to do is go back to the hospital and be with her husband.
Chanel: Mama’s right.
Paulina: Mama’s right.
Lani: Okay. I will head out then.
Chanel: Give eli my love.
Eric: Sarah thinks mickey’s alive?
Xander: Her memory is completely fine otherwise. But for some reason, around the baby, there’s just this glitch.
Eric: So why did they release her from the hospital?
Xander: I thought it was too soon. But sarah’s brain scans, they came back normal and kayla didn’t think there’s be any lasting effects from the drug.
Eric: In other words, this “glitch” is gonna wear off?
Xander: It hasn’t yet. We got back to the house, and sarah made a beeline for the nursery. And as soon as she saw that it was empty, she thought mickey had been kidnapped. And I–I panicked.
Eric: Meaning what?
Xander: Sarah was freaking out and demanding answers. And I–I may have told her that the baby was with you.
Eric: Xander, why didn’t you just tell her the truth?
Xander: I told you, I was panicking.
Eric: What were you thinking?
Xander: That I had to protect sarah. That I couldn’t let her go through the pain of finding out that her baby died all over again.
Eric: Or maybe you were just too scared because you were afraid that sarah was gonna hate you all over again.
Nicole: So you know that I told eric that mickey is his daughter?
Sarah: Well, it–don’t worry, xander explained everything. He said, you know, after kristen had injected me with that drug, no one was sure that I would even be able to be a parent to my little girl anymore. And so you thought it was right that her other parent know the truth.
Sarah: And, you know, nicole, I know that I’m the one that forced you to keep this huge secret from eric in the first place. Because, you know, when I found out that I was pregnant, you guys were already together. And I–I don’t want anyone to be with me out of obligation. And so then, xander offered to say that he was the father and–and whe– when I was sick– you did the right thing. You know, you risked your relationship and your happiness for my daughter’s well-being. And that’s a really amazing thing that you did.
Nicole: Wow, I–I– I don’t know what to say.
Sarah: And–and since eric is here, I’m guessing that he understood, which just so great. And I’m fine, as you can see, so I just–I would really like to take my baby home. So where are they?
Nicole: Sarah, uh–
Sarah: Is mickey napping? Oh. I think eric’s getting her up. Eric?
Sarah: Ah, hi, rafe. What are you, um– oh, my god. Are you cheating on eric?
Nicole: No, I–no, I’m not.
Sarah: Then–then why is he here?
Nicole: Sarah, honey, look. You–you don’t understand.
Sarah: Yeah, and I–I don’t– I don’t think that I want to. I just–I just need to get mickey.
Rafe: I’m sorry, did you say mickey?
Sarah: My daughter. Why are you looking at me like that?
Nicole: Sarah, mickey is– not–not here.
Sarah: What? Why?
Nicole: Because eric and I split up.
Eric: Admit it. You lied to sarah because you’re a selfish coward.
Xander: I protected sarah. She’s been through enough, eric. She was drugged, kidnapped, held captive on some godforsaken island. Then she comes home, only to be drugged all over again.
Eric: And that justifies you deceiving her about her own child?
Xander: You know what it did to sarah the last time she found out about mickey. I couldn’t–I couldn’t put her through all that again right now. I–surely you understand that.
Eric: You know what I understand? I understand wanting to protect somebody from needlessly suffering. But the only one you were trying to prevent from suffering is you.
Xander: Are you gonna help sarah or not?
Eric: Maggie cannot be okay with this.
Xander: Oh, she’s not. She’s very clear that we have to tell sarah the truth. And I will.
Eric: You’re gonna tell her the truth today.
Eric: I don’t know. Maybe because sarah’s gonna notice when no one brings the baby home?
Xander: Well, I might have a fix for that.
Chanel: How you doing, mama?
Paulina: You know, not exactly the ritz, but I’ve slept in worse places. What’d you bring me?
Chanel: I thought you could use some comfort food.
Paulina: [Chuckles] Ooh, muffins, scones. Alice’s famous donuts. I don’t see any bear claws.
Chanel: Oh, sorry, I gave them to julie. She was going to see eli.
Paulina: Oh, well, I hope he will enjoy them. And I will enjoy this–ooh, this chocolate croissant. Mm-mm. Ooh. Split it with me?
Chanel: I’m–I’m not hungry.
Paulina: Just one bite.
Chanel: Mama, no. We need to talk.
Paulina: Mm-mm. Oh, the color, the flake. Mm, girl, you got– you got some serious skills.
Paulina: Mm. Uh! You know what, chanel, I think you need to think about opening a second store. I mean, really. I’m serious, chanel. I’ve never tasted a more delicious croissant.
Chanel: Okay, could you put that down for a minute?
Paulina: Mm-mm, I cannot. I cannot. Ooh, ooh, mm. Ooh, I’ve been transported to my favorite patisserie in paris. Mmm. Ooh la la. It’s so–
Paulina: It’s so buttery, so rich.
Chanel: Mother, would you please stop talking about the damn pastry?
Lani: What are you doing?
Eli: I’m coming to find you.
Lani: At the police station?
Eli: I need to talk to you.
Lani: No, you need to get back in that bed, eli. You are nowhere near ready to leave the hospital.
Eli: You sound like my grandmother.
Lani: Yeah, well, julie is a very smart woman who loves you just as much as I do. And we waited so long for you to wake up. Okay? So don’t push it.
Eli: All right. I’m sorry.
Lani: Well, I’m here now. You wanna tell me what is so important?
Eli: It’s about paulina.
Lani: What about her?
Eli: I’m not so sure she’s guilty.
Julie: Eli hasn’t gone back to work, has he?
Abe: Oh, heavens, no.
Julie: Well then, why is he racing out of here?
Abe: He’s concerned about this situation with lani.
Julie: Oh. Because paulina shot tr coates?
Abe: Right. Yeah.
Julie: Well, I’ll tell anybody that listens, paulina deserves a parade, not prison time.
Abe: I know you feel strongly about this.
Julie: Well, of course I do. The bastard nearly killed my grandson and you. And lani. [Sighs] He had to be stopped. If paulina hadn’t taken that gun and blown him away–
Abe: That–that’s not what happened. No matter who you are,
Eric: Why do I have a feeling I’m not gonna like this “fix” of yours?
Xander: Well, at least hear me out. I’ll just tell sarah that you and nicole went off on a little holiday and took the baby with you. And while you’re “away,” that’ll buy me time to break the news to her.
Eric: Nicole and I are–
Xander: Sarah thinks you’re still together. She was stranded on fantasy island when everything– hit the fan. What matters is she won’t be suspicious.
Eric: Xander, nicole and i are divorced. She’s moved on with rafe.
Xander: So you pretend.
Eric: You mean lie?
Xander: It’s not like you’ll be hurting anyone. In fact, you’ll be doing a good deed for sarah. Will you–will you do it?
[Cell phone ringing] Hold that thought. Maggie? Maggie, is everything okay? What do you mean sarah’s gone? She must be looking for mickey.
Eric: Wait, xander! Hey, where are you going?
Sarah: You and eric split up?
Nicole: A while ago.
Sarah: What happened? Oh, no. When I got sick, you told him the truth, and he didn’t understand. He broke things off?
Nicole: No. No. Sarah, it’s not that. Uh, it’s complicated.
Sarah: Um, you know what? It–it doesn’t matter. I just need to find eric and get my baby, so– um, thank you, nicole.
Nicole: Um, okay, sarah? Sarah, before–oh.
Julie: What do you mean, that’s not what happened? Tr attacked you. And then he turned on paulina and attacked her when lani came in. And to save all the people that she loved, paulina shot him.
Abe: Tr is– well, there was obviously no love lost between me and tr. He was–he was obviously just a horrible man. But I think that he convinced himself that he cared for lani. She was his daughter. I don’t think he would have killed her. He loved her.
Julie: Please. If he loved her that much, abe, he wouldn’t have shot her husband.
Abe: You’re probably right.
Julie: Of course I’m right. Tr only cared about his own skin. And paulina knew it. And so, she shot him. That makes her a hero to me.
Paulina: What’s gotten into you?
Chanel: Me? You’re the one sitting here going on about pastries like we’re lounging by your pool in miami instead of sitting here at the police station.
Paulina: Well, chanel, what would you have me do? Just wring my hands and wallow in misery?
Chanel: No, but taking this seriously might be a good idea. You do know why you’re here, right?
Paulina: My lawyers are taking care of everything. With what I’m paying them, they’d better.
Chanel: Okay, I’m sure you’ve got a great legal team, but– but that doesn’t mean you’re gonna walk away from this. It’s not like you’re innocent.
Paulina: Chanel, you’re worrying over nothing. Now, at worst, I’ll just get a slap on the wrist.
Chanel: And what if you don’t? What if they–what if they put you away for years? Mama–mama, I’m scared. I just–I don’t know what I’ll do if I lose you.
Lani: You don’t think paulina is guilty? Why would you say that?
Eli: A few things.
Lani: Such as?
Eli: When you first told me about the shooting you said that “paulina said that she shot tr.”
Lani: She did.
Eli: That phrasing.
Lani: About what?
Eli: I mean, lani, don’t– don’t you think that’s kind of strange? I mean, why would you put it that way if you were there? You witnessed the shooting. I mean, why wouldn’t you just say, “paulina shot tr”?
Lani: I was upset. I had just– well, I had just saw my–my biological father get murdered. So I–I guess I wasn’t forming perfect sentences. Is there anything else that you want to grill me on, detective?
Eli: We can talk about it later.
Lani: No. We can do it right now. I’m ready. Next question.
Eli: Okay. Tr was shot with your service weapon. It was your gun.
Lani: I know. I holstered it so I could arrest ray. And then paulina grabbed it. That’s all.
Eli: Okay, but I just finished talking to your dad. He said that after tr hit him and he went down, that he thought he heard paulina say, “what have you done?” Why do you think she would say that?
Lani: How should I know, eli?
Eli: Maybe because she was talking to you. Maybe she was asking you that question. Because you shot tr. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…
[Knocking on door]
Nicole: Okay. Okay.
Xander: Where’s sarah?
Nicole: Hello to you too.
Xander: Damn it, nicole. Where is sarah?
Rafe: Watch your tone.
Xander: I don’t have time for pleasantries. Is sarah here or not?
Nicole: She left. She went to find her baby. Her baby that died years ago. Care to explain what that’s about?
Eric: So nice to see you.
Sarah: You too.
Eric: How are you feeling?
Sarah: Ah, you mean since kristen shot me up with some crazy drug? Uh, great, actually.
Eric: I’m happy to hear that.
Eric: I–I’m–I’m sorry for everything you went through.
Sarah: Thank you. Um, I don’t remember much of it, to be honest with you, which is probably a good thing.
Eric: Right. Yeah. Right.
Sarah: But anyway, I’m– I’m fine. I’m out of the hospital. And I–I feel like my old self and fully capable of being a good parent to my child– our child. I know that nicole told you the truth about mickey. God, you must hate me.
Eric: No. No. Not at all.
Eric: Really. Really, sarah. I– I understand.
Sarah: That’s so kind of you. I wasn’t sure, because nicole said you guys had broken up.
Eric: Yeah. Yeah. It was a while ago. I mean, things are fine between us now and I’ve moved on. And so has she.
Sarah: Yes. With rafe. I–I just saw him, ’cause I– I went to nicole’s house because I thought mickey was there. Because I thought you were there, but anyway, eric, I–I am so desperate to hold our little girl. Could you please go get her?
Julie: So the night that all of this happened, I don’t suppose you even had a chance to tell paulina about your feelings?
Abe: [Chuckles] He knocked me out before I could.
Julie: So what are you doing lying here? You should be running over to that police station toot sweet.
Abe: I think paulina has a little more on her mind right now than my feelings.
Julie: What could be more important than telling her you want her back?
Abe: I just don’t think it’s the right time.
Julie: No. No. Don’t tell me you’ve changed your mind.
Paulina: You’re not going to lose me, baby. It’s simply not going to happen.
Chanel: You don’t know that. When daddy died, you promised me that everything was gonna be okay, because I’d always have you.
Paulina: And I intend to keep that promise. I’m not going to leave you, no matter what.
Chanel: You might not have a choice. I ca–I can’t believe this is happening. You and I, we are finally in a good place after all these years of conflict and fighting. And I–I love being close to you, being able to see you whenever I want.
Paulina: That’s not going to change.
Chanel: I want to believe you. But after daddy, johnny, and allie–no one stays. No one–no one ever stays.
Paulina: I am not going to prison. Now, I have complete confidence in my lawyers, and I need you to have confidence in me. Now, if the worst happens– and–and it won’t, you won’t be alone. You’ll have big mama.
Paulina: I know, I know, she’s getting older.
Chanel: It’s not that. She lives in miami.
Paulina: Well, you love miami.
Chanel: Yeah, but I’m not moving back there. I–I have a bakery now.
Paulina: Of course. Of course, I was just pointing out–you can always visit and you– you got family here too. Your sister and eli and your little niece and nephew. They’ll always be there for you.
Chanel: I know. I know, and I love them, but they’re–they’re just not–
Paulina: Th–not–not what?
Chanel: My mama.
Lani: You think I shot tr?
Eli: Lani, I don’t think anything. I’m just–I’m just asking.
Lani: Because of something my father may have heard while he was barely conscious?
Eli: And other reasons that I mentioned.
Lani: Wow. Hm. You are really interrogating me.
Eli: And you get why. Lani, you’re a cop. I know you understand.
Lani: I also didn’t realize that I was a suspect.
Eli: Baby, you still haven’t answered my question. No matter what, lani, I’m on your side. Baby, all I want to do is help you, but I can’t, unless I know exactly what’s going on. Baby, whatever it is– whatever it is, we’ll get through it together. I love you. But I got to know. You have to tell me. Who really shot tr?
Lani: It was me. Okay, snacks and popcorn are gonna be expensive.
[Soft dramatic music]
Lani: It all happened so fast. I walked into paulina’s apartment with my gun drawn. And I saw tr about to hit paulina. And my father was on the floor, bleeding. And I just thought all this pain–all this pain was caused by tr. And I wanted him to stop. And I wanted to be the one to stop him. So I did.
Eli: You pulled the trigger.
Lani: That wasn’t my intention. I went there to arrest him for what he did to you. And I–and I– and I killed him. I killed my own father.
Eli: That man is not your father, lani. Abe is your father, and you saved his life.
Lani: And I also shot an unarmed man. And I–I was–I was gonna take responsibility. I swear that I was and– but then steve johnson walked in, and then paulina just blurted out that she– that she shot tr. And I was in shock, so I just–I– I went along with it. But not anymore.
Eli: Not–wait, what do you mean?
Lani: That’s why I went to the police station, to tell paulina that I–I wasn’t gonna let her take the blame.
Eli: I’m sure she wasn’t trying to hear that.
Lani: No. Not at all. She–she said that if the truth comes out, that I will lose my career, my family, my whole life. And then she begged me– she begged me to let her do this for me.
Eli: She is your mother.
Lani: Exactly. Which is why I cannot let her go to prison, eli. She won’t listen to me, but maybe you–maybe– maybe you can help me convince her that–that– that she–she can’t do this, that this–this is crazy.
Eli: Maybe it’s not.
Abe: I haven’t changed my mind about paulina. But I think the timing is far from optimal.
Julie: I disagree.
Abe: So you think I should declare my love while she’s sitting in a jail cell?
Julie: Frankly, I can’t think of anything more romantic.
Abe: I appreciate the encouragement, julie. But I think it’s best if I wait.
Julie: Well, of course, I can’t make you do anything. But I wouldn’t wait too long, abraham. I really think this is exactly what paulina needs to hear. Something life affirming, something–something hopeful. Something she can hang on to.
Xander: [Sighs] Nicole, why would you tell sarah that you broke up with eric?
Nicole: Because it’s the truth.
Xander: Of all the thoughtless things you could’ve said.
Rafe: I said watch your tone.
Rafe: No, I’m not gonna stand here and let him talk to you like that.
Xander: It’s okay. It’s okay. I can still–I can still save this. All you have to do is tell sarah that you and eric got back together.
Xander: Yeah, just explain that you realized you made a horrible mistake, and you decided to give it another go, and now you’re heading off on a belated honeymoon.
Nicole: So you want me and my ex-husband to pretend that we’re on vacation with his baby daughter, who died tragically years ago?
Xander: It’s perfect.
Nicole: It’s insane.
Xander: Nicole, would you be a team player for just once in your life?
Nicole: No! I am not doing it.
Xander: Oh, I see. This is payback. You’re still angry that I blew up your marriage to father sanctimonious. And now you want my plan to go bust.
Nicole: I am not doing it because it won’t help. It will only make things worse.
Xander: What are you talking about?
Nicole: The longer that you don’t come clean with sarah, the harder it will be to keep mickey’s death a secret.
Rafe: Yeah, that’s true.
Xander: No one asked you, mate.
Nicole: Look, xander, you have been down this road before. Every day that you try to keep this a secret, the more you will lose control. And you risk sarah finding out the truth from someone else. But if you go to her now, you can make sure she hears it in–in a caring, sensitive, loving way from you. Isn’t that what you want?
Sarah: Is mickey upstairs?
Sarah: Is she with your mom? I can just go there.
Eric: No. No. No. She’s not with my mom. She’s not with my dad or my sister.
Sarah: Then where is she?
Eric: Sarah, let’s sit down.
Sarah: Why? What’s going on?
Eric: There’s something I need to tell you, and it won’t be easy to hear.
Sarah: Eric, you’re scaring me. Is it–is it about mickey?
Eric: It’s time that you know. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.
Lani: You don’t think it’s crazy for paulina to go to prison for something that I did?
Eli: I think she has a point. Baby, you have a lot more to lose.
Lani: We’re police officers. We took an oath to uphold the law, to be accountable for our actions, eli. Integrity. Courage. Trust. Do those words not mean anything to you?
Eli: Yes, of course they do. But I also took a much more important oath to you, my wife, the mother of my children.
Lani: Ugh, eli —
Eli: Lani, I cannot let you go to prison. I need you. Baby, our kids need you. And if that wasn’t a clean shooting, you’re looking at hard time.
Lani: What are you saying?
Eli: I’m saying I think it would be better for everyone if you just let paulina take the fall.
Paulina: I know this is scary, but we’ve been through scary times before. We just need to remember how strong we are.
Chanel: I don’t feel very strong.
Paulina: Oh, but you are. That’s one of the things about you that I’m most proud of. Oh, chanel, come here. Come here. Come here, baby. Come here. Come on. Oh, honey. Oh. I got you. I got you. You’ve got me. And that’s never–that’s never gonna change. Now, and I promise you, I promise you, chanel, everything–everything’s gonna be–it’s gonna be just fine. Okay? Just fine. Just fine.
Rafe: Found it.
Nicole: Oh, yay. Henry will be so happy. We’ve been looking for that for weeks.
Nicole: Yeah. Hey.
Rafe: You know, I thought that was really nice, what you said to xander, by the way. Encouraging him to tell the truth to sarah before she finds out from someone else.
Nicole: Yeah, well, I’ve kept a lot of secrets I wish I hadn’T. So I thought I’d help the guy out.
Rafe: Mm. Very generous, especially considering everything that he’s done to you.
Nicole: Hm. What, you think I’m a pushover, hernandez?
Rafe: Actually, I was thinking it’s just one more reason why I love you.
Nicole: Aww. Mm.
Xander: Sarah. What’s going on?
Sarah: How could you?
Xander: Sarah, I was just– thanks a lot, mate.
