Days of Our Lives Transcript Tuesday 7/30/02
[Knock on door]
Abe: Yeah, come in.
Abe: Oh, your father already left for the day.
Sami: That's okay. I came here to see you about Brandon.
Abe: You know, I don't want to hear it, Sami. I wish you'd stay away from him. He's a hothead. He's a very troubled young man.
Sami: You're right, Abe. He is. But it's because of you.
Nicole: Mom. Orchids, birds of paradise, and a very expensive vase. This has victor written all over it.
Nicole: Hmm, yep. "My darling Nicole, the rarest of flowers for the rarest of women. A token of my affection, sent with my promise to fulfill all your desires. My love, victor." He's finally coming around.
[Knock on door]
Brandon: I need your help.
Nicole: Looks like you're out for blood.
Brandon: You got that right.
Belle: Good job. That's great. Okay, okay, um... How about this? Howdy, partner.
Boy: H-howdy, p-partner.
Belle: You're a natural. Here, try it on.
Shawn-d: Hey, what's going on?
Belle: Oh, nothing, just teaching them new words and stuff.
Girl: How-- howdy, partner.
Shawn-d: Howdy. Here you go.
Shawn-d: You're welcome. Here you go. You just -- cheers. No, just this -- this little one. All right, all right, I got it, I got it. Good thing we got the recycling bin right there.
Belle: It's amazing how quickly they pick things up. They still have a lot to learn.
Shawn-d: Yeah. So, um, have you got them to say where they're from yet?
Belle: Actually, I've kind of been doing most of the talking, but you can try.
Shawn-d: Most of the talking. You? No...
Belle: Okay, thanks.
Shawn-d: Nice hat. Um... So, where y'all from? Okay, um... What...City... Or...What town...
Hope: Bo? Ooh...Bo! Hey!
Bo: Hey. I thought you were asleep.
Hope: Well, I was, but then I reached out, expecting to fall into my husband's big strong arms and found nothing but a big empty pillow.
Bo: I heard Zack. I went to check on him.
Hope: I thought he was outside with Shawn.
Bo: Well, he was, but apparently Shawn brought him in and put him to bed while we were otherwise engaged.
Hope: Ahh... Mmm...I heard nothing.
Bo: I know. But right now your youngest son is wide awake. I figured a drink and a story would, uh, do the trick.
Hope: Okay, well, you know what? I'll be right up, okay?
Bo: Where are you headed?
Hope: I need to go to the garage and get my suitcase. I haven't even packed for my trip yet -- and whose fault is this, that I haven't packed for my trip? I guess you had me busy doing...
Bo: Other things.
Hope: Other things.
Bo: Tell you what.
Bo: You entertain Zack; I'll go get the suitcase.
Hope: Sounds like a plan.
Bo: I miss you already.
Hope: Ditto. See you upstairs.
John: Ah, perfect timing.
John: Just the man I want to see.
Bo: Kind of late for a social call.
John: Yeah, well, this one couldn't wait.
Bo: What is it?
Bo: The key you lifted from the DiMera mansion.
John: I found out what it's made for.
Bo: What's that?
John: Outer space.
Man's voice: Sleep, Marlena... Sleep...
Man's voice: Sleep, Marlena...
[Knock on door]
Marlena: What? What?
Marlena: Never again!
[Knock on door]
Tony: I know I should've called first. I see I've come at a bad time. Marlena, are you okay?
Man's voice: Sleep, Marlena... Sleep...
Shawn-d: Hollywood. Hey, maybe they're actors.
Shawn-d: [Laughs] see, they're doing research for a film.
Shawn-d: Come on, what are you laughing at?
Belle: They're not actors, and they're not from Hollywood. She said "Hollywood" because of this.
Shawn-d: You're, uh, kidding, right?
Belle: No, I found it in the corner, and I taught them the word "Hollywood" and told them it was a town.
Belle: Watch. Do you remember? Hollywood?
Girl: Hoo-- hooray for Hollywood.
Boy: C-California, here we come.
Shawn-d: [Laughs] oh, my god. What am I laughing at? We're right back where we started.
Belle: Not exactly. We found them a safe place, and they're starting to trust us.
Shawn-d: Well, this place is not going to be safe for long. We really have to figure out where they're from. Oh, what if we start naming all the 50 states?
Belle: We have a better chance of getting answers if we start naming the planets in outer space.
Boy: Planets... In outer space.
Bo: Come on, john, you expect me to believe that came from outer space?
John: I had it tested again with a lab I've used in the past, and the report came back saying this is made from a specially designed metal treated to withstand extremes in temperature and pressure. Nasa developed it for the space shuttle, Bo. It hasn't even been released to public industries yet.
Bo: So DiMera obtained it illegally.
John: Mm-hmm. Now why would he want something to use in outer space?
Bo: Old man DiMera wanted to conquer the world. Maybe Tonyís takes it one step further -- to space.
John: Nah. I don't like it. I mean, Tony hasn't made a move to get his key back yet. I'm sure he knows it's missing, and he probably suspects you or me.
Bo: Well, not me. I'm a cop. He knows I don't break and enter.
John: Mm. Why is he behaving like my new best friend? I mean, he hasn't come after me, he hasn't even made any threats.
Bo: Except for the reading of the will. That was laced with threats.
John: Stefano's threats, not Tonyís.
Bo: One and the same. You didn't believe Tonyís little speech there, apologizing for his father's behavior?
John: No way. The fact is, when Tony does make a move to get his key back, we got to be ready for him.
Tony: Marlena, are you okay?
Marlena: You're right. You should have called.
Tony: Well, I was afraid you would refuse to speak to me, especially after what happened at the reading of father's will.
Marlena: How could you be part of that farce?
Tony: I see you're still upset after what he left you. I'm sorry.
Marlena: You're not sorry. Your father lived to torment me and the people of this town, and now you're back to finish the job.
Brandon: its time somebody stopped that bastard from persecuting everyone who crosses his path. I swear, I could have killed him earlier.
Nicole: Brandon, calm down, all right? Just calm --
Brandon: No, I'm finished standing around while he goes around ruining people's lives.
Nicole: Will you at least tell me whom you're about to do in?
Brandon: Abe carver. Who else? I should have flattened him when I had the chance.
Nicole: You came to blows with the police commander?
Brandon: I came this close to making him road kill.
Nicole: Here I thought your days in the ring were past history.
Brandon: What the hell's wrong with you? How can you make jokes about the guy who broke up our parents' marriage?
Nicole: You need a reality check, bro.
Brandon: If he hadn't been hooking up with our mother, maybe dad wouldn't have freaked out and left the way he did.
Nicole: Oh, come off it, Brandon. Dad was a train wreck before mom even knew Abeís name. Or did you forget our childhood from hell?
Brandon: I haven't forgotten a thing.
Nicole: Our father is dead and buried. Why are you doing this?
Brandon: Because every time I see Abe, I remember. Why can't you admit that what happened back then haunts you the same as it does me?
Nicole: Because I don't let myself go there. Brandon, my life began when I walked into titan and made victor sit up and take notice.
Brandon: Victor is just a less brutal version of our old man.
Nicole: That is so not true.
Brandon: I see you sucking up trying to impress him with how sexy and savvy in business you are, hoping that he'll love you, which he won't.
Nicole: And this coming from a guy who still has Sami draped all over him. She dumped you once. What, don't you ever wise up?
Brandon: Samantha doesn't get to me anymore, except when she's buddy-buddy with Abe carver, making him out to be some kind of hero, when I know who and what he really is.
Nicole: You're kidding yourself, Brandon. I see the way you let her and Lexie hang on you and use you with their "poor me" acts. You know, you take whatever they dish out like you used to take dad's beatings.
Brandon: Why did I think you could help?
Nicole: Brandon, listen. You spent your childhood hoping that mom would love you and take care of everything, but she didn't, and Sami and Lexie won't either. They don't love you. They never have, and they never will, so let it go.
Brandon: I suppose you're madly in love with victor karakas. Tell me, Nicole, does your heart stop when he walks into a room? Do you fantasize about champagne nights in bed with him?
Nicole: I don't have to fantasize. Victor is everything I wanted or needed in a man. Look, he showers me with orchids like those -- the best of everything. Look, Brandon, we are back together again for good.
Brandon: At least when dad sold you to the highest bidder, you were just a kid. You didn't have a choice. Now you do, and you're still letting yourself be bought.
Nicole: Get the hell out of my apartment.
Brandon: All the orchids in the world can't fill the emptiness, Nicky.
Nicole: Well, you should know. You're the expert when it comes to running on empty.
Abe: You know, I am not responsible for what Brandon thinks or do, but I can keep him out of my life, and I advise you to do the same.
Sami: I love Brandon. When my life was a mess and everyone else had bailed, he was there for me.
Abe: Just be careful, huh? I have work to do.
Sami: Abe, I know why Brandon resents you. He blames you for making the tension in his family worse. You intervened as a cop, paid too much attention to his mother. Abe, he thinks that you had an affair with her -- with Fay. Is that true?
Abe: How the hell is that any of your business?
Sami: Because I care about you and Brandon, and I think if I knew what was really going on between the two of you, I could help. Look, Abe, I'm not going to judge you if you had an affair with her, I promise. I just -- if I know, I think I can help Brandon work through it.
Abe: Sami, I love you. You're like family to me. You're like a daughter. But if you keep putting yourself in the middle, trying to make things right, well, Brandon might start directing his unresolved rage at you.
Sami: He wouldn't do that. He knows that I am just trying to help him work through it.
Abe: Stay away from him, hmm? For your own sake.
Sami: I bet you wish Lexie would stay away from him.
Abe: Sami... I have work to do.
Sami: Look, Abe, I am totally on your side about this. Can't you understand? I just -- I want to bust up that so-called friendship, too, and I think that we could really work together here. I can keep Brandon away from Lexie. In fact, I'm probably the only one who can.
Marlena: The house of DiMera hasn't changed, Tony. Neither have you.
Tony: Well, I'm not under my father's spell. I broke free of him just like you and john did. At least hear me out.
Marlena: I'll give you one minute.
Tony: Well, I know the anger you're feeling. I've been there with my father, too.
Marlena: Let's get one thing straight, Tony -- I am angry with you, not Stefano.
Tony: I don't understand.
Marlena: Oh, the hell you don't. You get a kick out of people being hit with little horrors like this.
Marlena: Yes! I watched you, Tony. You enjoyed seeing people squirm as Stefano spoke from the grave and threatened people with his items that he was bequeathing, reminding them of every cruel thing he had done to them.
Tony: So how many times am I supposed to say, "I'm sorry" before you believe me?
Marlena: You're not sorry. You knew what was in that will and how that might upset everybody, and you refused to stop it. You're as bad as your father. I'm sorry. You're worse, because Stefanoís methods were so obvious. Tony, you stay away from my family and me. From now on, we do not exist for you. And call off your so-called friendship with my husband. And if you ever hurt Sami, you will have me to deal with. Contact with my family is now over. Do you understand me, Tony?
Marlena: Tony, this is ridiculous. If you have nothing to say to me, then get out now. I don't know what kind of a game you're playing, but I will not play it with you. Tony. Can you hear me? Tony, answer me.
[Gasps] okay, I've got you. I've got you. I've got you.
Marlena: Tony, if you can hear me, squeezes my hand. Tony, come on, come on. Snap out of it. It's Marlena. Snap out of it.
Marlena: Yes. Do you know where you are?
Marlena: You're okay. Just relax.
Marlena: Tony... I'll be right back. You're having one of those episodes you had at the mansion. You said you get distracted, but I think it's more than that. I'll get something to help you.
Tony: [Thinking] getting you out of the room is the only help I need. I've had those attacks for real so often, faking them is almost second nature.
Bo: Whatever this key unlocks, we can't sit around and wait for Tony to lead us to it.
John: Mnh-mnh. You know, perhaps it's got something to do with this so-called legacy from Stefano. You know, the chess set, the model of the DiMera mansion.
Bo: You think he's carrying out his father's evil plans?
John: Or one of Tonyís own making.
Bo: I'm glad hope and Zack are headed to Iowa. They'll be safer there.
John: Yeah. I wish she could take Marlena with her.
Bo: How's she doing?
John: Not good. Pretty shook up after this reading of the will. In fact, she is home alone right now, and I need to get back there and make sure she's all right.
Bo: Yeah, I'll walk you to your car. I'm headed to the garage. I got to pick up a suitcase for hope.
Shawn-d: Okay, next state -- penn-syl-van-ia.
Shawn-d: Yeah. Yeah. Ha ha.
Belle: You are such a good teacher. No wonder I love you.
Girl: No wonder I love you.
Belle: Why don't we go back to "hooray for Hollywood"?
Bo: Are you in there? Shawn, open up this door, will you? Shawn. Shawn. Come on, open up this door.
Abe: [Chuckles] Sami, I'm not going to cut a deal with you.
Sami: Deal? What are you talking about?
Abe: Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't you just agree to keep Lexie and Brandon apart if I give you information about Brandonís family and my role in their lives?
Sami: Why are you so suspicious of my motives? Look, I am just trying to help you get back with the woman that you love, period.
Abe: No deal.
Sami: If I know what went on between you and Fay, I think I could help Brandon break free of his past and let Lexie go.
Brandon: Well, this must be my lucky day.
Abe: We were just talking about you. Ill
Tony: That key's got to be here. Why isn't this picking it up?
Tony: Hmm? Oh. What happened?
Marlena: You tell me.
Tony: I must have had one of those episodes.
Marlena: How are you feeling?
Tony: Okay. Where were you?
Marlena: In the other room. When I came back in, it looked like you were putting something in your pocket.
Tony: Oh, no, actually, I was trying to take something out of my pocket to show you. I suppose it's the reason why I came here... To bring this to you.
Marlena: A chess piece.
Tony: Yes, it's the missing piece john inherited from my father. It's the queen.
Bo: Shawn, what the hell's going on?
Shawn-d: Yeah, hey, you. Yeah, hang on. Hang on one second, dad. I got it. This door is kind of -- is kind of -- wait. There, there. Whew.
Bo: What's wrong with the door?
Shawn-d: It's just -- it was stuck. You know how that door is.
Bo: What are you doing out here?
Shawn-d: I was looking for J.T.'S toys -- you know, the ones that we keep out here. I was figuring since mom's going to go see him tomorrow, and he's got to be missing some of his favorites like the truck...
Bo: Yeah, yeah, that's a good idea. Um, this is one of his favorites.
Shawn-d: Yeah, so why don't you start picking out a few with mom?
Bo: Okay, yeah. First, I got to get a suitcase.
Shawn-d: No, no, hey, dad, I'll get it. I'll get it.
Bo: No, it's not a problem.
Shawn-d: No, really, you and mom should just start picking out some of the toys.
Bo: Shawn --
Shawn-d: I-I'll bring the suitcases right away.
Bo: Why are you working so hard to get rid of me?
Sami: Well, I wanted to let Abe know that we were both okay after my accident on the road. I was telling him that I had had my car towed.
Brandon: Mm-hmm. What else?
Abe: You know, the truth is, I was advising Sami to stay away from you while you're obviously so angry, for her own safety. So what are you doing here?
Brandon: You and I need to get some things straight in private.
Abe: As far as I'm concerned, we've got nothing to say to each other. I feel you've interfered in my life, and you feel Iíve interfered in yours.
Sami: Well, maybe both things are true.
Brandon: Shut up.
Abe: Don't you dare speak to her that way! And don't you ever take out your anger on her or my wife. I won't have it.
Abe: Commander carver. All right, yeah, yeah. Tell him Iím on my way. It's an emergency. You two have to leave. Sami... Remember what I said.
Sami: Abe, you remember what I said, too.
Brandon: Where does he get off ordering me around?
Sami: Look, Brandon, your anger is out of control, and I'm scared -- not for myself, but for you. Look, I know that you think that Abe had an affair with your mother --
Brandon: Is that why you're here? To get him to admit it?
Sami: No. Anyway, I mean, what would be the point? He never would admit it, right?
Brandon: Oh, he's guilty. What proof do you need?
Sami: Okay, what if he is? You know, I mean, maybe he gave your mother the kind of love that she needed when your father couldnít. So what does it matter?
Brandon: It matters to me. It will always matter to me. [Knock on door]
Victor: Ha ha. I was beginning to think I had the wrong night.
Nicole: Mm. Right place, right night, right on time.
Victor: Playing hard to get, are we?
Nicole: Why don't you open the champagne?
Victor: I see you got my flowers.
Victor: I meant what I said on the card.
Nicole: I know.
Victor: Does that trouble you?
Victor: Then why am I getting mixed messages here? I mean, the champagne, the candlelight... And yet that faraway look in your eye.
Nicole: I'm really scared for my brother, victor. He's so angry, and I know it's because Sami's chasing after him again. She brings out the worst in him -- in everybody.
Victor: You want Sami to steer clear of Brandon, consider it done.
Shawn-d: Dad, I just want to be alone. Ahem.
Bo: Is there something going on we need to talk about?
Shawn-d: No, really. Um, yeah, I was just -- just thinking about J.T. And -- and mom leaving tomorrow. Yeah.
Bo: Okay. Well, don't take too long finding those suitcases. Your mom wants to pack before she goes to sleep.
Shawn-d: Yeah, yeah, no problem. Dad, this, um... Door is stuck.
Bo: Yeah. I'll take a look at it later.
Shawn-d: Yeah, maybe some oil or something. Oh, my gosh.
Belle: That was close.
Shawn-d: Yeah, I'm thinking that we need to find a better hiding spot for these two.
Belle: Hey, don't look so worried. It's all going to work out.
Shawn-d: All right.
Tony: Well, go ahead, take it. It won't bite.
Marlena: I want nothing that came from Stefanoís will.
Tony: Well, then I'll leave it for john. After all, father did will the chess set --
Marlena: No, donít.
Tony: Well, then I wonít. I would hate to upset you any further. Bad idea, coming over today, I think. I'm sorry if I disturbed you.
Shawn-d: Found the suitcases.
Bo: Hey, good.
Hope: Honey, thank you, but what are you doing in the garage at this hour?
Shawn-d: Just hanging out.
Bo: He's having separation anxiety, just like me.
Hope: Oh, come on, you guys. Honey, I'm not going to be gone that long.
Shawn-d: I'm still allowed to miss you, right?
Hope: Absolutely. Just promise me something, though -- you will not go chasing after any more aliens while I'm away.
Shawn-d: Okay, I promise you, the hunt is over.
Shawn-d: [Laughs nervously]
John: Hey, doc.
Marlena: Where have you been?
John: The office. I had to take care of some work. Then I stopped by Bo and hopes.
Marlena: Tony was here. I needed you.
John: Hey. You okay? Did he hurt you?
Marlena: He... Brought by another piece of Stefanoís legacy.
John: What are you talking about?
John: The missing queen.
Marlena: He must have found it when everybody left.
John: No. That's not why he came. He was here to case the place. Probably waited till you were alone.
John: Because I have this.
John: And I know what it's for now.
Marlena: I don't care what it's for. Give it back to Tony right away. Do it tonight. You took your first step right over there.
Brandon: Abe carver is a bastard. He needs to pay for what he did to my mother.
Sami: Look, why bother dredging up the past? I mean, hasn't your mother been through enough?
Brandon: He put my family through hell.
Sami: Look; you were just 5 years old when you saw your mom and Abe kissing. I mean, it must have been mind-blowing to a kid, but what difference does it make now? It was just an affair.
Brandon: It wasn't just an affair. It was more than that -- much more.
Bo: Man, I didn't realize he had so many toys.
Hope: I can only get a few things.
Bo: Send all of them to him?
Hope: Hey. Hey, Shawn, honey, why don't you come over here and help us pick out a few things for J.T.?
Bo: Yeah, this was your idea.
Hope: Oh, look at him.
Shawn-d: You know what? I know his mitt is in here somewhere. I saw it before.
Bo: Could be. The bat's here.
Hope: Hmm. what's so interesting outside?
Shawn-d: Huh? Nothing.
Bo: A little jumpy tonight.
Shawn-d: Yeah. No -- yeah. I think I left the, um... The light on in the garage. I'm going to go check.
Hope: Shawn, hey.
Hope: Is everything okay?
Shawn-d: Yeah. Why? Yes. I-I just has a lot of energy, so I'm going to go for a run. I'll see you tomorrow, right?
Hope: That boy definitely has something on his mind.
Bo: Yeah, maybe he and belle are still working things out. I'll watch him while you're gone. Don't worry.
Hope: You know what? I'm too tired to pack tonight.
Bo: All right. I'll help you pack in the morning. After all, this is our last night together.
Hope: Hmm. why don't we spend it just like this?
Bo: Except maybe upstairs in the bed.
Hope: Mm, there you go again, Brady. Always reading my mind.
Bo: Mm-hmm. Let's go.
Shawn-d: We really have to figure out a way to lock that door.
Boy: L-lock that door.
Belle: Yeah, I wish.
Shawn-d: All right, maybe they're starting to understand.
Belle: No, I think they just repeat what they hear.
Shawn-d: Yeah. Okay. It's really important that you don't leave here, okay? We don't want to keep you under lock and key.
Girl: Lock... And key.
Belle: Maybe these will help.
Shawn-d: Good idea.
Shawn-d: Oh, looks like it's freaking them out.
Belle: Why are they so scared? It's not going to hurt you. It's just a key.
Shawn-d: All right, don't move, all right?
Marlena: If you won't give back the key, then I will.
John: Doc. Give me the key.
Marlena: No, we can't.
John: We can't what?
Marlena: This key must never be in the dim eras' possession again.
Tony: "Open the door with the blue key and open the door to your dreams."
