Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Belle: I can’t believe you. You’re just calmly saying that shawn’s baby might die and that that would be, what, a bright side to this?
Ej: Well, isn’t the child jan is carrying the reason you and shawn are separated? So if worst comes to worst–
Belle: Just stop it. Stop it.
Ej: Oh, come on.
Belle: No, you come on. Why are you saying this? What is wrong with you?
Shawn: Come on, it’s okay, it’s okay, jan, it’s almost over, it’s almost over.
Jan: [Gasping] Oh, god, they’re coming so close together.
Shawn: They’ve given you an iv to slow it down, all right? It should kick in soon, all right?
Jan: Oh, god, what if it doesn’t? Oh. What if the baby comes today? It’s too soon.
Marlena: Oh, hi, sarah.
Sarah: Hi. Is kayla on duty?
Marlena: She is. I think she might be in surgery.
Sarah: I need help. I think the antidote is wearing off.
Kate: Lucas? Answer me, are you drinking?
Lucas: Look, that’s not mine.
Kate: Oh, my god. Okay, I think you can do better than that.
Lucas: I am telling you the truth, okay? That glass belongs to your ex-boyfriend, clyde weston. He just left here. I didn’t take a sip of it. I promise you. I swear.
Kate: Okay, I did see clyde leaving when I was coming in.
Lucas: Oh, great, thanks for trusting me, I appreciate that. Oh, wait, you don’t want to do that–no, no, no! Clyde drank out of that glass.
Kate: Trust me. I need it. I just had a talk with chad.
Lucas: So what? What’s the big deal?
Kate: So the big deal is that he thought I should know… that he told abigail that you’re the one who kidnapped sami.
Lucas: [Whispers] What? You got to be kidding me.
Chad: So when you say gwen wasn’t too happy–
Abigail: That I accidentally broke the stupid mug she made for my dad? Ha. It’s an understatement. She also said that she would “make…me…pay.”
Chad: Did she…say how she was…gonna do that?
Abigail: No. No, she was just trying to scare me. Could you not look so worried? The woman’s behind bars. There’s nothing she can do to me.
Gwen: It’s gwen. Who else would be bloody phoning you from prison? Look, I need to talk to you about abigail. If I don’t get to spend my father’s birthday with him, then neither does she.
Leo: Don’t you think you’re being a little dramatic?
Gwen: No, leo, I don’T. I asked her for one tiny little simple favor. I just wanted to make sure that my father would receive the gift that I made for him for his birthday. And you know what she did? She smashed it into tiny million pieces.
Leo: That was rude, but–
Gwen: Shh. This is what I want you to do. I want you to find the nearest sharpest object and I want you to stab her in the heart with it.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Marlena: What makes you think the antidote is wearing off?
Sarah: Xander and I, uh, went to see my mom to tell her that I had gotten my memory back and that we were together.
Marlena: I know, I was happy to hear that news.
Sarah: Thank you. And while we were there, I– I had a hallucination.
Marlena: What kind of hallucination?
Sarah: I saw kristen…and she had a syringe in her hand. And, marlena, it was so real. And I thought that she was coming after me again and then I realized that it wasn’t kristen, it was victor and he was just holding a pen in his hand.
Marlena: How did they react?
Sarah: They didn’T. They don’t know. I– it happened so fast that they just didn’t catch on, thank god, because I don’t want them to worry, but I– I’m scared to death. Do you know what’s happening to me?
Marlena: The important thing is for you to not to panic.
Sarah: How do I do that? I-I’m seeing things that aren’t there. Am I losing my mind? What did gwen do to me?
Leo: Gwenevere, this sounds a little extreme, even for you.
Gwen: Leo, do you remember our double wedding? You remember that was supposed to be the day that would change our lives forever? And then do you remember being dumped by xander and craig? So here’s the burning question. Why is it that you and i are always the ones who suffer when abigail and chad get to go on living their perfect, happy little lives together?
Leo: I am just infuriated as you are, but–
Gwen: Why is there even a but in this? My god, don’t tell me you’re folding. What happened to the bloke who said he wants to inflict pain on all the ones who hurt him?
Leo: I am that bloke. I told you what I did to sonny and chad.
Gwen: Pfff. Please. Come on, planting sleazy rumors in a tabloid that everybody knows is just chock-full of lies. No, we need to do what they did to us. We need to hurt them the way that they hurt us.
Leo: Gwen, I gotta go. My phone is about to die.
Gwen: And hopefully, so is abigail because if she doesn’t–
[Beep] Leo? Leo!
Abigail: Gwen’s just going to sit around hating my guts like she always does. What’s new?
Chad: Well, while we’re on the subject of people who hate our guts–
Abigail: Oof. Did you talk to kate?
Chad: Yeah, I told her that you know lucas is the one that kidnapped sami.
Abigail: How’d she take it?
Chad: She was not pleased.
Abigail: Well, you told her I was going to keep my mouth shut, right?
Chad: Yep. Pretty much those exact same words.
Lucas: Why the hell would chad do something like that?
Kate: He didn’t have a choice, okay? Abigail got it into her head that she wanted to solve the mystery and she was planning on publishing the article about it in “the spectator.”
Lucas: Oh, my god.
Kate: Yeah, well, she’d already dug up your little friend pete.
Lucas: How? How’d she do that?
Kate: Well, apparently he got himself arrested again, so she was determined to go to wisconsin and interview him.
Lucas: Oh, my god, just what I need. This is great. Perfect.
Kate: Yeah, well, chad tried to talk her out of it, but he couldn’t do it and, you know, he was worried about what could happen to her if she went down to investigate. So…[Sighs] Well, he thought the best way to get out of it was to tell her that it was her beloved uncle lucas who kidnapped sami and frankly, sweetie, I can’t blame him.
Lucas: Well, I can blame him. What if chad or abigail tells ej? What if they tell ej or anyone else for that matter? I’m screwed!
Ej: Didn’t you say that if shawn told you immediately after he slept with jan that you would try and convince her to take the morning after pill?
Belle: Well, yeah, I did say that, but that’s not the same thing. The morning after pill prevents pregnancy–it doesn’t end one. This is a life we’re talking about, okay? And I do not, nor have I ever, wished this baby dead. But it could. It could die. Oh, my god. I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself, and shawn’s probably at the hospital right now freaking out, so I have to go.
Ej: Why would you do that?
Belle: Because whether I like it or not, this is shawn’s baby and this child could– I would never forgive myself if I wasn’t there. The lows of bipolar depression
Marlena: You are not losing your mind.
Sarah: Then why do I think that I saw kristen? The antidote is supposed to reverse the effects of rolf’s drug, right?
Marlena: And it has set aside a lot of the damage you’ve been through. But because of the dosage you have, well, there might… might be flare-ups. I know kayla has prescribed the medication for you.
Sarah: The one that helped abigail.
Marlena: But the dosage may have to be increased.
Sarah: Um… let me ask you something. If we do increase my meds, are these hallucinations something that I’m just going to have live with for the rest of my life?
Marlena: I certainly hope not. But you did have such a large dose, it’s hard to give you any guarantees.
Sarah: Oh, my god.
Marlena: We can… adjust the dosage of your new medication, but…it’s been so effective. You know, I think we have reason to be optimistic.
Sarah: If you say so.
Marlena: I also think you might want to talk to abigail. She’s been through all this.
Sarah: Yeah, that’s a great idea. Thank you so much for talking me down, marlena.
Marlena: Any time at all.
[Elevator bell dings] Belle, hi, honey, what are you doing here?
Belle: Hi. I was with shawn when you called to say jan was in labor.
Marlena: Yes. Well, she was, uh, admitted a little while ago.
Belle: She can’t have the baby now though, right? It’s so soon.
Marlena: Yeah, it is soon. They’ve have her on some medication to slow down the contractions or even stop them, hopefully.
Shawn: Jan just passed out.
Marlena: Sorry, honey.
Ej: I was too direct with belle just now. I thought I was comforting her, but she left deeply offended. You wouldn’t have cared about that, as long as you made your point. I, however, do care. So I suppose I should find a way to…make this right. With no help from you.
Leo: Good lord, I thought he’d never shut up and leave. Seems like everyone around here uses you as some kind of sounding board. So, pops, what do I do about abigail? Or…to her?
Chad: Well, you’re right. Kate and lucas have nothing to worry about. Have I thanked you enough for agreeing not to say anything?
Abigail: I can always stand to hear it again.
Chad: Well, I’m sorry for putting you in that position. I never want to ask you to lie to anyone, especially a member of your own family.
Abigail: Lucas is my mom’s half-brother. I’m not related to sami by blood, not like you and ej.
Chad: Ha ha. Keeping secrets from each other is part of my family’s favorite pastime. Keeping secrets from my wife is not something I’ll ever do again.
Abigail: There’s nothing you can’t tell me. I’m always gonna be on your side.
Chad: You’ve always stood by me.
Abigail: You’re my husband and the father of my children, and I also happen to love you a whole damn lot.
Chad: Oh yeah?
Abigail: Yeah. Uh, speaking of our children, I took my temperature this morning.
Chad: Oh yeah. Are you sick?
Abigail: No. What I am is ovulating.
Chad: Well, okay then, maybe we should probably get out of here.
[Soft, light music]
Time. It’s life’s most precious commodity,
Belle: Hey. How is she?
Shawn: They, uh… they rushed her to the or.
Belle: She’s in surgery?
Shawn: They said that she had something called a placental abruption.
Belle: A woman in my office had that. It’s where the placenta separates from the uterine wall.
Shawn: What happened to her?
Belle: She lost the baby. I’m sorry.
Shawn: No, it’s all right, I…I asked, so–
Belle: Well, what did my mom say?
Shawn: She said that she’d stay with jan. And I tried to go with her, but they wouldn’t let me. They just– they were all so serious when they rushed her out of there. I have no idea what’s gonna happen to her. Or to the baby.
Kate: Okay, look. Chad gave me his word abigail is not going to say anything.
Lucas: And you bought that?
Kate: Yes, I bought it. She’s not going to send her uncle to prison, lucas.
Lucas: Why not? She sent her own sister there.
Kate: Okay, all right. That’s completely different and you know it is. My point is, abigail hates gwen. She loves you. And she would understand that you were so desperate to keep sami from going back to ej, you–
[Sighs] Oh, my god, you did a bone-headed thing.
Lucas: I know that–thank you for addressing that now.
Kate: My point is, she’s not gonna send you to jail just because she feels like it. She’s a good person, lucas.
Lucas: She’s a good person. She’s an editor at a newspaper, and you told me yourself she was working on sami’s kidnapping story. What if she decides to run the story anyway? What happens then?
Kate: Oh, my god, I mean, god, I… maybe you should just…
Lucas: What? What? Spit it out, I know you’re gonna say it anyway, just say it.
Kate: Well, you’re not gonna like it.
Lucas: What’s new?
Kate: Don’t you think it would solve all your problems if you just told sami the truth?
Lucas: Oh, yeah, that would really work out great for me. Nice idea.
Kate: You don’t know! I mean, how many times over the years have the two of you forgiven each other for doing horrible things? Why wouldn’t she eventually understand and forgive you? Lucas, if you’re thinking of marrying sami, you can’t live with this secret between you.
[Distant background chatter]
Gwen: What are you doing here?
Sarah: We haven’t been properly introduced. I’m sarah horton. Oh, come on. My face has to seem a little familiar. Seeing as how you borrowed it to break up with xander as me. Gotta be a little strange for you, huh? It’s like looking into a mirror.
[Distant laughter, chatter]
Chad: He’s never seen two people kissing before.
Abigail: In this house, maybe not.
Chad: Mmm. So is this whole, uh, whole temperature thing, is it real?
Abigail: It’s pretty reliable. I have some other signs too.
Chad: Well, then, let’s seal the deal.
[Intense percussive music]
It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle
Gwen: Look, sarah, I-I… I really don’t want to get into this now.
Sarah: Oh, you don’t? That’s too bad. You knew that kristen was holding me prisoner on that island, and you left me there. Stranded. I’d probably still be there if it weren’t for abigail.
Gwen: If it weren’t for abigail, you probably would never have been sent to that bloody island.
Sarah: Oh, yes, please, please tell me–how is it abigail’s fault?
Gwen: That syringe that kristen jabbed you with… she never would’ve gotten her hands on it if abigail hadn’t have left it in the good old dimera secret room. You know she was planning to use it on me.
Sarah: Oh, that’s right. You’re the victim in all of this.
Gwen: I didn’t kidnap you, did I? So why don’t you just go find kristen a-and tell her all your troubles?
Sarah: Oh, I plan to. But I thought I’d start with you first. When they finally got back here, when xander got me the antidote that would end the hell I had been living in, that didn’t work for you. So you made sure I got a double dose of that crazy-making drug.
Gwen: You got the antidote, didn’t you? I mean, look at you. You’re…you’re good as new. You’re perfect. So why are you here bothering me?
[Intense, dark music]
Chad: Do you think today’s the day that we made a baby?
Abigail: I mean, if we didn’t, it wasn’t for lack of trying.
[Giggles] But I feel like we did.
Chad: What? Wow.
Abigail: What are you hoping for? Another girl or another boy?
[Sucks tongue] Twins.
Abigail: Twins. You realize we’d be seriously outnumbered.
Chad: Even with one more, we’d have to switch to a zone defense. At least thomas and charlotte are old enough to help out.
Abigail: You mean the kids who have clogged literally every single drain in this house with glitter slime?
Chad: Fair. Okay, so maybe another year or two. Our kids are… pretty precocious, aren’t they?
Abigail: That’s what the plumber said. Uh…speaking of our kids, what do you think about taking a little trip with them tonight?
Abigail: Well, tomorrow’s my dad’s birthday. I think I’d really like to be with him. So…we could all fly to boston together. What do you think?
Chad: I think that it is a great idea. Seems pretty sudden though. Think that maybe we could maybe leave in the morning? If we leave early enough, we’ll still have plenty of time to celebrate.
Abigail: Mmm… sure. Why not? I mean, what difference does one night make?
Shawn: So what, uh…so what are you doing here anyway?
Belle: I was worried about the baby. And you. You must be scared.
Shawn: Yeah. Yeah, I am.
[Sighs] It’s the baby that I never wanted to happen. And then I started thinking about…’bout whether or not it’s going to be a boy or a girl and…what it would be like to take care of a new baby and–
Belle: Yeah, well, there’s the best doctors here, right? And you said my mom’s with jan. She’ll make sure gets the very best care. She likes her obstetrician, right?
Shawn: You know, this-this thing that… this thing that happened to her, they said that the baby might be-might be deprived of oxygen and nourishment, and that it’s just going to be touch and go and–
Belle: Come here. Come here. You just… you have to keep believing the baby’s going to be okay.
Shawn: I just wonder how long it’s going to be until I hear something.
Belle: No matter how long it takes, I’ll be here with you.
Lucas: Maybe you’re right. Maybe I will tell sami the truth.
Kate: Will you?
Lucas: Of course not! No way. What do you think she’s gonna do when she finds out that i I kidnapped her? What is she gonna say, “let bygones be bygones”?
Kate: Well, no, not right away.
Lucas: No, as soon she finds out that I’m the guy who’s responsible for holding her against her will for months, you know what she’s going to do? She’s not going marry me. She’s gonna send me to prison. And then she’s going to go back to ej. She’s going to go back to ej so fast, our heads will spin.
Kate: Okay, look. Fine. I get it. I get it, I get it, I get it. And honestly it’s not like I want this information to come out either, you know? I mean, if roman finds outut I kept the information from him, that you had kidnapped sami, he’s never going to forgive me.
Lucas: I know, I know. Holding is a grudge is in the brady dna.
Kate: Oh, god, tell me about it. So it’s fine. Don’t tell sami. I mean, truthfully, lucas, I just hated seeing all of this eat away at you.
Lucas: You think I like it? I don’t like it either, you know? I got no choice.
Kate: I know. Tell you what, why don’t we… why don’t we meet here for dinner tonight? What do you say?
Kate: Yes, together. Who knows, I’ll probably annoy you so much that you’ll forget all about abigail.
Lucas: Fine. Fine, I’ll meet you here later.
Kate: Thank you. All right, see you later.
Lucas: All right.
Chad: Keep doing that and I’m going to have to start trying for those twins.
Abigail: Done with your swimming lesson already?
Thomas: Mom, it was over half an hour ago.
Abigail: Oh, my gosh.
Abigail: It was. Pfft.
Chad: Time flies when you’re having fun.
Abigail: So, what do you guys think about going on a little trip to boston to surprise your grandpa for his birthday?
Charlotte: Can we go on grandpa stefano’s airplane?
Chad: I think the chances of that are excellent.
Abigail: What do you think, honey?
Thomas: What if my loose tooth comes out? Will the tooth fairy find us in boston?
Abigail: Of course she will.
Thomas: It’s a he. And what about “minions”?
Chad: Uh, mommy has had a lot on her mind. Dimera’s doing a special screening of the new “minions” movie, and I said that we could go.
Abigail: Oh, well, what time is the screening?
Chad: It is…in like an hour. We can still make it, right, guys?
Thomas: Can you come too?
Abigail: I would love to–
[Beep beep] But, uh…oh, boy. I still have to approve the layout for the style section. My assistant’s going to send it to me in one hour.
Charlotte: So we can’t go to the movie?
Chad: Well, is it okay if I take you?
Charlotte: Yeah. We’re going to see “minions.”
Chad and abigail: Yes.
Abigail: But first you gotta change your clothes, okay? So I laid some things out on your bed.
Charlotte: Bye, mommy.
Abigail: Excuse me! Hugs. Give me a hug here, you. Get over here, you. Mm-mm-mm-mm! Okay, I love you. Have fun at the movie.
Abigail: Bye. Mwah. May it always be that easy to make them happy.
Sarah: You ask why I’m bothering you? Do I really have to spell it out?
Gwen: You got what you wanted, didn’t you?
Sarah: I had to relive the death of my baby! Do you have any idea what that’s like?
Gwen: Yeah, actually, I do.
Sarah: Try doing it twice. And, yes, I got my memory back. Thank you for asking. But even with that antidote, I still have hallucinations. I thought that victor was kristen, and I nearly attacked him.
Gwen: Oh, wow, wish i could’ve been there to see that.
Sarah: You are a miserable human being.
Gwen: I am paying for it now, aren’t I? I’m here, I’m stuck in this horrible hellhole. I have lost everything. I have lost my family, I have lost my freedom. I lost xander.
Sarah: You did it all to yourself. Xander and I are back together, by the way.
Gwen: That is only because my darling sister stopped the wedding. He loved me. He did. We were going to be married. That’s how much he grieved for you.
Sarah: Yeah, we sorted all that out. We’re very…very happy. So, think about that when they take you back to your cell.
Shawn: What are you doing here?
Ej: I wanted to inquire about the baby.
Shawn: You couldn’t care less about my baby.
Ej: I understand how worried you must be.
Shawn: Yeah, you know what? I am worried, and the last thing I want to deal with is you, so why don’t you get the hell out of here? Well, what are you waiting for, huh?
Shawn: Marlena. What happened in the or? Did they stop the bleeding?
Marlena: Yes. They did. Jan is going to be fine. But they had to deliver the baby.
Shawn: They did?
Marlena: He’s small, but he’s alive.
Marlena: Oh, yes, you’ve had a son.
Shawn: So the baby, he’s, uh, he’s all right?
Marlena: Yes. They rushed him to the nicu. He’ll be there for quite a while.
Shawn: Can I see him?
Marlena: No, no, they’re still evaluating him.
Shawn: Okay. Uh, a-and what about jan? Where is she?
Marlena: They’ve taken jan back to her room. She wasn’t completely out of the anesthesia yet.
Shawn: Okay. Uh… I should… I should probably be there when she wakes up, I think. Um… look, thank you. Thank you for staying with me.
Marlena: Well, I think I’ll go back to the nicu and see if I can get any information for shawn. Honey.
Ej: That must’ve been a lot to take in. I wish you’d say something.
Belle: Just get me out of here.
Ej: Where would you like to go?
Gwen: It’s gwen. I need your help.
Chad: Are you skipping the brand-new “minions” movie to scroll through your feed?
Abigail: Pfft. Trust me, if I didn’t have to check this page layout, my butt would be right there in the front row right next to you.
Chad: It’s okay. You’re not really well enough informed of whether or not the minions know spongebob.
Abigail: We got great kids, don’t we?
Chad: We sure do.
Abigail: We’re lucky.
Chad: Yes, we are. Oh, uh, what was the whole tooth fairy thing about?
Abigail: You better get the kids rounded up. I’ll tell you when you get back.
Chad: All right.
Abigail: Hey. I love you.
Chad: I love you.
Lucas: For all I know, abigail could be writing that story right now. By the morning I’d be finished. Will and allie are going to hate me. Sami’s going to hate me for sure, I know that. And I might be headed for prison.
[Intense percussive music]
Moderate to severe eczema
[Lucas groans] Ohh…
Ej: Are you feeling any better?
Belle: Even a gourmet dinner can’t erase this day, but the second bottle of wine definitely took the edge off.
Ej: I just wanted to say sorry for the thoughtless thing I said today. I never should’ve been so unfeeling about a child’s life. All I can say for myself is that it was a very ham-handed attempt to make you feel better.
Belle: And I do so want to. Please…make me feel better.
Gwen: Oh. Hi, roy.
You missed bed check. Where the hell have you been?
Gwen: I have a pass to use the library. You can ask the matron.
We searched the library.
Gwen: Well, I fell asleep in a corner. Just woke up. Come on, roy. Where else could I have been?
Chad: Abby, you missed the best “minions” movie yet. Abby? Abby!
