Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Chanel: So I’ve decided which of you I want to be with.
Allie: That’s– uh, that’s really great.
Johnny: Sure is.
Chanel: And I want you to know that I know it’s taken me forever, but I just–I care about you both so much, and–
Both: Just tell us.
Kate: To jake.
Paulina: To jake. A hell of a man.
Kate: Ooh, well, that’s pretty kind considering the fact that you didn’t know him from adam.
Paulina: I’m taking your word for it.
Paulina: Kate, I’m sorry for your loss.
Kate: Yeah, I don’t know– I don’t even know why his death is hitting me like this.
Paulina: Mm. You two had a thing, didn’t you?
Kate: Yeah, we did. We did, and it was pretty good for a while until he dumped me for gabi hernandez.
Ava: What is your problem?
Ava: Jake’s body isn’t even cold, and you’re talking about voting shares?
Gabi: Ej’s coming after me. He wants my job. And, you know, some of us still work for a living.
Ava: Yeah, and you know, some of us aren’t living at all! And all you can do is think about what jake’s death is gonna cost you.
Gabi: This is not personal. This is business. If ej gets his hands on jake’s dimera shares, then I’ve got nothing that… there’s no way I can stop it. Or maybe there is. Ej wouldn’t get jake’s shares if they went to jake’s widow.
Ava: What widow?
Gabi: You, babe. If you and jake were married, those shares would go to you, and there’s nothing that ej could do about it.
Ava: Yeah, there’s one little problem here. We’re not married.
Gabi: Says who?
Ej: Don’T. Don’t give me that look. I told chad he could stay in the house. It was his decision to move your grandchildren out. Can I help it if this house is so eerily quiet?
Kristen: Not anymore, it’s not.
Kristen: Hey, ej. Long time no see.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Chanel: Okay, so what I’ve decided is… is that blood?
Johnny: Huh? What?
Chanel: On your face.
Johnny: Uh, no. No, that’S… actually, that’s cherry.
Chanel: But how’d it get there?
Allie: I threw pie in his face, okay? And then, he threw one in mine, so…
Johnny: We’re just a little competitive over the pie-tasting.
Allie: Among other things.
Chanel: You guys, I hate what this competition is doing to you, especially the one about “other things,” me being “other things,” I assume. So I just want you to promise me– please, please promise me– that what I’m about to say, it won’t come between you. It won’t make you throw more pie in each other’s faces.
Johnny: Just tell us what you’ve decided, okay? And I’ll act like a grown-up from now on.
Allie: Yeah, I will too. I promise.
Roman: So chanel’s having an important talk with johnny and allie, huh?
Abe: Mm-hmm, about the future. Right. And paulina and I decided that we should clear out of the apartment for a bit.
Roman: Well, I hope you put away the breakables before you left.
Abe: [Laughs] Well, I sure hope we don’t need to.
Roman: There you go.
Abe: Ah, thank you.
Roman: Mm-hmm. So how are eli and lani doing?
Abe: Well, eli’s got this great apartment in D.C. And valerie is helping with the twins, so you know, things are working out as well as can be expected. Me, I– I am missing them like crazy.
Roman: I know what you mean. You know, when I thought lucas and sami were gonna get married, I was hoping they would settle down here. And now, nothing’s settled and won’t be for a long time.
Abe: Yeah, who would’ve thought lucas would have kidnapped sami? You know, no one had any idea it was him.
Roman: Some people did– kate, for example.
Abe: Kate knew?
Roman: Yeah. She let ej go to prison for a crime her son did and she let lucas take my daughter, the woman he kidnapped, off to europe.
Abe: I am very sorry. Well, what does that mean for you and kate?
Roman: There is no “me and kate.” We’re done.
Kate: I was feeling a bit bitter, vindictive, so I used my power to make him suffer for what he did to me.
Paulina: Got your revenge, huh?
Kate: Yeah, I got my revenge, but it didn’t feel that good, you know? Because, deep down, I was actually really hurt.
Paulina: I hear you.
Kate: So it took me a while, you know, to– to open up my heart again.
[Sighs] And roman was so patient, and he was so kind. Now, it’S…
Paulina: Aw, kate. Well, I felt so bad when you told me he broke up with you, especially because you seemed– you two seemed so happy together. What’s wrong with that man?
Kate: Not a damn thing. It’s my fault.
Ej: When I heard about your miraculous pardon, I knew you’d show up here eventually.
Kristen: Huh. I didn’t come to see you. I came to offer my condolences to chad.
Ej: Well, you’ve come to the wrong place. Chad and the children have moved out.
Kristen: Huh. Well, then you obviously have even more empty bedrooms here than usual, so I’ll be moving back in.
Ej: [Laughs] Really?
Ej: You just decided this?
Kristen: Well, it’s better than crashing with jake and ava. And you know what, brother? This place is very big, and you and I don’t have to see each other.
Ej: Actually, I could envision us getting close again.
Kristen: Mm. And why would we do that?
Ej: So we could join forces. Vote gabi out once and for all and take back our father’s company.
Ava: Who is gonna believe that I married jake on the same day that…
Gabi: Is there anybody that can prove that you didn’t marry him this morning?
Ava: [Sniffles] I guess not. We got robbed right as we bought the rings.
Gabi: Where? What jewelry store?
Ava: The one off the square.
Gabi: Okay, that’s perfect. That’s a block away from city hall. Okay, here’s what we’re gonna do–we’re gonna say it was a spur of the moment thing. You didn’t have rings. After you tied the knot, you went to go find rings to make it look authentic–
Ava: Okay, will you shut up? Please shut up. You’re talking about me being your partner in crime? Have you forgotten than the man that I love is lying here dead? Have you forgotten that I actually despise you?
Gabi: Okay. Forget about helping me, but maybe you’d like to help yourself before your life comes crashing down.
Ava: Oh, that better not be a threat. Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.
Sonny: Okay, so this is the lasagna that maggie made for jack and jennifer. Obviously, she didn’t know you and the kids were showing up, but I mean, it should be enough for you all.
Chad: I’m sure it will be. Actually, we’re not visiting. Kids and I are staying here now. I just moved us in.
Sonny: Oh. I mean, I guess I see why you wouldn’t want to be staying at the dimera house.
Chad: That’s not why we left.
Sonny: What happened?
Chad: Ej kicked us out.
Kristen: Oh, I couldn’t double-cross gabi. She’s been very good to me since I’ve been out.
Ej: [Chuckles] “Good to you” how?
Kristen: Well, guess who is in charge of basic black, hmm? Which is right where I want to be.
Ej: Mm-hmm, between chloe and brady.
Kristen: Oh, you know me so well.
Ej: I do. And that’s why I know you’ll want to hear me out.
Kristen: I’m listening.
Ej: I’ve just come into possession of chad and kate’s shares in the company.
Kristen: Ooh, how clever of you.
Ej: Mm-hmm, and if I could have yours–
Kristen: Oh, you could take over the world.
Ej: “We.” We could take over the world. You could keep your lofty position at basic black and move into your old suite here. Rachel could have the one right next to yours, assuming you win custody.
Kristen: Hold on, hold on. How do you have chad’s shares?
Ej: He betrayed me. It was the price he had to pay.
Kristen: Oh, and how am i supposed to trust you that you’re not gonna betray me?
Ej: Oh, I’d be a fool to do that. I need your shares. Do we have a deal?
Ava: I’m not gonna help you take on ej dimera.
Gabi: I wouldn’t make such rash statements if I were you. Now that you’re on your own since jake’s life was cut drastically short, you don’t have a dime. Without my help, your life is gonna fall apart.
Ava: And why would you help me?
Gabi: I’ve read the company bylaws, and I know that if you and jake were married, his shares would go directly to you. Think about the lovely dividends that you’d be receiving into your account every single month.
Ava: And why are so concerned with my finances?
Gabi: You’re right, no, there is something in it for me.
Ava: Surprise, surprise.
Gabi: Ej wouldn’t be able to generate enough power to kick me out as ceo.
Ava: Well, I’m actually surprised you did come up with this plan.
Ava: Well, let’s say you’re right and I do get those shares. What’s to keep me from teaming up with ej to help him bury you?
Chanel: Okay, now that I have both of your attention, I want you to know how hard this decision was. But what hit me was that you and I never even would’ve been together if–
Allie: I’d just been honest with myself about my feelings for you.
Johnny: But we were together, chanel. We were.
Chanel: I know, and our time together was the most romantic few weeks of my life… until you broke my heart in a million pieces when I thought that you didn’t love me anymore.
Johnny: But that wasn’t me talking, chanel. You know that. Look, you are the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I never stopped loving you.
Chanel: I love you. I love both of you, but the person that I want to be with, hopefully for the rest of my life, is allie.
When moderate to severe
ulcerative colitis persists…
Paulina: You knew a long time ago.
Kate: That lucas was the one that kidnapped sami? Yes, he told me after she was rescued, but I kept it to myself.
Paulina: You were protecting your child.
Kate: At the expense of roman’s child.
Paulina: From what I’ve seen of sami brady, she can take care of herself.
Kate: Oh, yes, but she is roman’s baby, and he’s not going to forgive me.
Paulina: Abraham is like roman, and I’ve broken his trust more than once.
Kate: Yeah, but you were protecting lani.
Paulina: And my pocketbook. Remember price town?
Paulina: What I’m trying to say is, the two of us, we come from the same place. We both started out with nothing. Got beaten down by men who claimed they loved us. It’s hard to trust after that, and not just other people– ourselves too.
Kate: I appreciate you trying to let me off the hook.
Paulina: You have to let yourself off the hook if you expect roman to.
Kate: I don’t expect roman to.
Paulina: Abraham forgave me, didn’t he? I’ll never forget running into you at the hospital. You told me, “be patient. Don’t give up on the love between us.” Kate, you need to take your own advice. Don’t give up on roman now.
Abe: What can I say except I’m sorry?
Roman: Yeah, me too.
Abe: Do you think you might be willing to give kate another chance?
Roman: No way. After what she did?
Abe: You know, I said the same thing about paulina. I thought that I would never be able to trust her again, but now, we’re happily married. You know, people used to say you need to give happiness a chance. You were one of those people. I’m just saying.
Chad: Honestly, I don’t know if I can stand living in that house anymore. I mean, everywhere I looked, I– I saw abby. Getting dressed up for a night out, reading to the kids, goofing around with them. You know, the last time I saw her alive was in our bedroom. We were hoping we’d made a new baby.
Sonny: Jeez, man, I don’t know what to say.
Chad: Well, I never wanna see that room again.
Sonny: I’m really sorry, chad.
Chad: Ej gave me the push I needed to get us out of that house, and honestly, it’s a relief. The kids love this place, and I don’t know what we would do without jack and jennifer. You know, I just have no idea what we’re gonna do when they go back to boston.
Sonny: I have one idea.
Sonny: Yeah. There’s room in my house. You, thomas, charlotte. You can stay there as long as you need.
Gabi: If you team up with ej, those shares of yours? They’re not gonna be worth a red cent.
Ava: Oh, and why’s that?
Gabi: [Scoffs] You spent too much time playing domestic goddess with rafe. You’re slowing down.
Ava: I asked you a question.
Gabi: I know that you and jake didn’t get married. You double-cross me, and I will out you in a hot second. You will be left with less than nothing.
Ava: Oh, so you are threatening me?
Gabi: I can’t take what you don’t have. The way I see it, you’ve got two options–you work with me and we both win, or you screw with me and we both go down for the count. It’s your choice.
Kristen: Hmm, we most definitely do not have a deal.
Ej: You do realize I’m offering you quite a significant upgrade on your current situation.
Kristen: Uh-huh, but for how long? See, I can call the shots with gabi.
Ej: [Chuckles] Oh, I wouldn’t be so sure. See, your new friend is on the outs with jake because he’s been sleeping with ava. What does gabi feel about you sharing quarters with jake and ava? And since when do you have a close relationship with our brother, the grease monkey?
Kristen: I wouldn’t be such a snob if I were you. Have you forgotten that I took care of you during your vegetative state? And the thanks that I got from you was that–
[Secret panel creaking]
Ej: Rolf, what the hell were you doing in there?
Rolf: I needed somewhere to stay after I was pardoned. I didn’t want to impose.
Ej: And here I thought the house was feeling quite empty.
Rolf: I take it you haven’t heard about your brother?
Ej: Which one?
Rolf: The dead one?
Ej: [Sighs] You’re going to have to be more specific.
Rolf: Jake. My asthma felt anything but normal.
Kate: Well, I do appreciate the encouragement, but I don’t know if I can take myself off the hook, you know? And roman isn’t the only one who’s having a hard time forgiving me these days.
Paulina: Mm, who else?
Kate: Sami’s kids– my grandkids– allie and will.
Paulina: I don’t know will, but allie might be in a more forgiving place after she talks to my daughter.
Kate: Really? Why would that be?
Paulina: Right now, chanel is telling allie and johnny which twin she wants to be with.
Kate: [Gasps] Wow. Okay. Well, she might be in a better place then, or she might be in a worse place, depending how it goes.
Allie: Oh, chanel, I am so happy. Um, johnny, I’m really sorry.
Johnny: No, you’re not.
Chanel: See, this is why it took me so long to make a decision. I hated the idea of hurting either one of you.
Johnny: When you just touched my face before, don’t tell me you didn’t feel something between us.
Chanel: My feelings for you are still there. Why do you think I had to make a list of what I loved about both of you?
Johnny: [Scoffs] I take it allie had the longer list?
Chanel: Allie has just had more time than you have. We’re best friends, and we work together every day, and we still love each other, which is pretty amazing. And we’ve never really had a chance to see where things might go between us, and I think that we deserve that chance. Can you understand that?
Johnny: No, I can’T.
Ava: You can’t pull this off. The board of directors is gonna want to see a marriage license.
Gabi: I’ll take care of all that.
Gabi: Money talks.
Ava: Yeah, jake just died this morning, and all you want to talk about is money.
Gabi: [Sighs] I want to talk about the future, okay? Yes, jake was not the love of my life, but I cared about him and he cared about me. And at the end, we were not right for each other, but I– I wanted to see him happy, and he wanted the same thing for me. And I’m not gonna be happy if I lose this job, and I know jake’s not gonna want to see you out on the street.
Ava: I need time to think about this.
Gabi: I’m sorry. It’s now or never, okay? What’s it gonna be?
Sonny: Look, I’m serious, okay? I already know uncle vic and maggie would love to have you and the kids at the house, and you already know how big it is.
Chad: Yeah, I do.
Sonny: But in the spirit of full transparency, I should probably let you know my brother’s already there, so…
Chad: Which brother?
Chad: You didn’t tell me he was coming to town.
Sonny: Oh, I didn’t know either. He just sort of showed up. Apparently, he’s not having a blast in phoenix or with joe or vic.
Chad: How long is he staying?
Sonny: Oh, he’s not going anywhere. Yeah, apparently he wants to work with me at titan.
Chad: And how do you feel about that?
Sonny: I don’t know yet. You know, he just sort of assumes that I’ll give him a job because there’s no reason not to.
Chad: I can think of a few reasons.
Sonny: Oh, yeah?
Chad: Yeah, you’d be working with your brother. In my book, that’s a really bad idea.
Kristen: Jake is–
Ej: He’s dead?
Rolf: He was shot by someone attempting to rob him. They got him to the hospital, but they couldn’t save his life.
Ej: I’d better go over there.
Kristen: Why? You don’t give a damn about jake.
Ej: Someone has to take charge, act as his next of kin.
Kristen: Oh, I get it. You don’t want anyone to beat you to those shares of stock he owns.
Ej: Owned, and of course I don’T.
Kristen: Oh, I guess you won’t be needing me anymore.
Ej: You rejected my offer. I expect you to be gone when I’m back.
Kristen: Well, he wasn’t what I’d call “prostrated by grief.”
Rolf: Unlike you?
Kristen: I barely knew jake, but I didn’t hate him on sight like the rest of my family! Okay, I’m not racing ej to the hospital to take advantage of that poor guy’s death.
Rolf: Perhaps you should be.
From prom dresses
Allie: It sounds like you’re not accepting chanel’s decision.
Chanel: You promised you would.
Johnny: You’re right, I did. You’re a lucky woman.
Allie: I know.
Johnny: You be good to her.
Allie: I will.
Johnny: Uh, okay. Well, I got to go. See you around.
Paulina: Mm, nothing from chanel yet, so I can’t go home. Oh, neither can abe, so he’s hanging out at the pub. Hmm, speaking of my husband, if he were to run for a higher office–say governor– could he count on your support?
Kate: Oh, well, he’d be a hell of a lot better than the cracked clown we have in there now, wouldn’t he?
Paulina: So you would support him?
Kate: Of course I’d support him.
Kate: Is he thinking of running?
Paulina: Let’s just say I planted the seed.
Kate: Hmm, actually, you did the same for me.
Paulina: I did?
Kate: Yeah. I’ve been thinking about what you had to say, and I think I’m gonna go over to the pub, and I’m gonna talk to roman.
Paulina: Oh, I’m so glad. I’m so glad; you go ahead. Go get your man, honey.
Kate: Thank you.
Paulina: Oh! Mmm.
Roman: Well, you know what, abe? My situation is a whole lot different than yours was.
Abe: Why? Both kate and paulina were keeping a secret to protect their children.
Roman: Yeah, what about my kid?
Abe: You don’t really believe that lucas would put sami in danger?
Roman: Hell yes! He kidnapped her, abe.
Abe: Well, he used bad judgment. I mean, there’s no denying that, but I think that he did it because he loved her so much.
Roman: You know what? That’s what kate thought, and it’s not like I’ve been a great judge of character lately.
Abe: And why would you say that?
Roman: Well, for one, my ex-wife and two of my grandkids were possessed by the devil, and I didn’t have a clue. And you know who’s making your chowder right now? Clyde weston, the felon I vouched for when my niece took off on a trip around the world. And soon after I hired him, he bought some stolen jewelry, got locked up for abigail’s murder. And now, his old partner in crime is being let out of jail by the governor.
Abe: To call it a rough year would be an understatement.
Roman: Yeah. Do you have any idea why the governor would let somebody like orpheus out of jail early?
Abe: Wish I did.
Roman: Yeah, well, at least he can’t run again in november.
Abe: Paulina thinks I should run.
Roman: For governor?
Abe: She even invited mitchell to dinner. Had this big plan to get him to endorse me.
Roman: [Chuckles] I assume that was before he pardoned a whole lot of people like orpheus.
Abe: Thereby making his seal of approval totally worthless, which means, among other things, that paulina’s big plan is not going to work out.
Roman: Yeah. Well, there are not a whole lot of things working out lately, so tell you what. I’m gonna check on your dinner.
Rolf: I live by one creed: “What would stefano do?” Hmm? In this situation, there is but one choice to make.
Kristen: You really think you can do it?
Rolf: Yes, with your help.
Ej: I just heard about my brother.
Kayla: Yeah, I’m so sorry.
Ej: [Sighs] He was so young. We had gotten quite close recently.
Kayla: I did not know that.
Ej: When you release his body, I’d like to have him buried in the dimera crypt.
Kayla: Well, there’s some paperwork that needs to be filled out by his next of kin. I was guessing that was vivian.
Ej: She’s a convicted felon. I don’t think the hospital wants to enter into any sort of agreement with her.
Kayla: Good point. Well, how do you suggest?
Ej: Myself. I am the head of the family now.
Kayla: Okay. I’ll get the forms.
Gabi: I see the vultures are already circling.
Ej: Yes, so it seems.
Kayla: I would definitely read it over before you sign it.
Ej: Thank you.
Gabi: What is that?
Kayla: It’s forms that need to be signed by jake’s next of kin.
Gabi: Wouldn’t that be his wife?
Ej: Jake didn’t have a wife.
Gabi: Until this morning.
Ava: [Sniffles] Your hand is so cold. Hmm. This morning seems like a dream.
[Chuckles] We were so happy when we bought these.
With this ring, I thee wed. I will always remember this morning. And I’ll always love you. My a1c stayed here,
Kate: Hey, abe.
Abe: Oh, hey. Aw. So I thought you were with paulina. I mean, she texted me that you were hanging out.
Kate: Well, yes, we were.
[Laughter] But I knew you’d be here. You’ve been exiled from your apartment, I heard.
Abe: Not for too much longer, I hope.
Kate: No, I don’t think so.
Kate: No. So I thought I’d come by and talk to roman, you know? Is he around?
Kate: Um, I wonder if you have a minute to talk.
Johnny: [Chuckles] Hello, paulina.
Paulina: Oh, johnny!
Johnny: You’re safe to go home now. Chanel announced her decision.
Paulina: From the look on your face, you’re not here to celebrate.
Johnny: [Chuckles] No, definitely not. She, um– she wants to be with allie.
Allie: I am the happiest woman in the world right now.
Chanel: No, I am.
Allie: Dupree, I want you so bad, but it just feels a little bit weird to celebrate when johnny’s miserable.
Chanel: Yeah, I know what you mean, but how long do you think we should wait before we, you know, celebrate?
Allie: I don’t know. It feels like we’ve kind of been waiting forever.
Chanel: Yeah and the whole point of being together is to really be together.
Allie: When you’re right, you’re right.
Chanel: I think we’ve waited long enough.
Chad: I shouldn’t have warned you about working with alex. I’m sure he’s nothing like ej.
Sonny: No, you were honest. You know, I get along with alex just fine. It’s just, you know, I’ve never been my big brother’s boss before.
Chad: Tony, what’s going on? What? Are you sure? Yeah, thanks for letting me know.
Sonny: What’d he say? Is everything okay?
Chad: It’s my, brother jake. He was shot.
Sonny: What? Is he okay?
Chad: He’s dead.
Gabi: Oh, you haven’t heard? Ava just told me that she and jake got married.
Ej: Bloody hell. When did this happen?
Ava: If you’re talking about me and jake, we were married this morning.
Kayla: I’m sorry, ava. I did not know.
Ava: No, you know, everything was happening so fast, it didn’t even occur to me to tell you, but jake and I were husband and wife when he was…
Kayla: Well, I’m sorry to bring this up now, but there are some forms that need to be signed by jake’s legal next of kin.
Rolf: Are you ready to go?
Kristen: Wait, wait, wait. Rolf, rolf, rolf, rolf, not until you tell me what sort of help you need from me.
Rolf: There’s no time for explanations! We must act now!
Kristen: [Sighs] I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Roman: I don’t have time to talk, ’cause I just found out my broiler is on the fritz, and to be honest, I don’t have a hell of a lot to say to you.
Abe: Well, don’t give up hope. He’ll come around.
Kate: That’s what paulina said to me.
Abe: Yeah, well, she’s a wise woman. You know, I did talk to roman and I told him he should give you another chance.
Kate: Well, thanks, but I doubt that he’s going to do that.
Abe: I don’t doubt it at all. Just give it some time.
Paulina: This one’s on me.
Johnny: You didn’t have to do that.
Paulina: No, no, I wanted to. Between us, I was pulling for you, kid.
Chanel: I love you so much, horton.
Allie: I love you too.
Sonny: Chad, I don’t know what to say.
Chad: Yeah, me neither. I mean, I wasn’t that close with him, but he was abby’s friend. Now, both of them?
Gabi: Nice try, ej, but no cigar.
Ej: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Gabi: Sure you do. You were about to sign those next of kin papers. Now you can’t get your hands on jake’s shares of dimera stock.
Ej: Hmm. Don’t be so sure. This marriage came out of nowhere and is awfully convenient. If you don’t think I’ll get to the bottom of this, then you don’t know me very well.
Kayla: Oh, the orderlies are here to pick up jake’s body and take it to the morgue. When you’ve made your funeral arrangements, he’ll be released to you.
Ava: Funeral arrangements, on my wedding day.
Rolf: Ah, jake. It is you. Ready for your next adventure? [Chuckles] Shall we?
Kristen: [Sighs] I really hope you didn’t lose your touch while you were in the slammer.
