Days of Our Lives Transcript Thursday 8/8/02
Jennifer: Oh, excuse me. I知 looking for a dr. Colin Murphy. Have you seen him?
Woman: Earlier, when he was making his rounds. I don't know where he is at the moment.
Jack: Looking for someone?
Jennifer: Ooh! What are you doing here?
Jack: My job. I知 on a breaking story -- a mugging in the park. If you need confirmation, you can talk to the victim. She's down in the E.R. Right now with a broken nose.
Jennifer: Or maybe you found out I was meeting Colin and you wanted to make sure you were around to complicate things.
Jack: How could I possibly complicate things?
Jennifer: Jack, I知 a big girl. I can take care of myself.
Jack: I知 sure you can.
Jennifer: You don't look sure.
Jennifer: I know what you're thinking. You're wondering how far I値l go to get the goods on Colin. You are worried that I知 going to go to bed with him.
Colin: Not exactly a hardship -- getting close to Nicole Walker.
Tony: You know, Colin, you handled it extremely well. I知 impressed.
Colin: You never did explain the purpose of it.
Tony: All you need to know is that you proved that you can follow orders. Now, I predict our work together should be very advantageous to us both.
[Jazz music playing]
Victor: Beautiful always. No need to check.
Nicole: How sweet. Thank you. So, any reason you booked us at our favorite table? Unless I知 missing something. Not a special occasion. Oh, wait. You have another empty ring box, perhaps.
Victor: We need to have a serious talk, Nicole.
Nicole: Why? I知 certainly not intimidated, nor should you be. Basic black's going to be eating our dust.
Victor: I知 not talking about business competition. I知 talking about competition of the heart. If you're seeing anyone else, I want to know about it right now.
John: "La Belle au bois dormant." "La Belle au bois... Dormant." Well, let's see what we have here. Ah. Here we go. And we have a match. And the constellation is... Gemini. All right. Well, next question is what the hell does that mean?
Belle: Who are you?
Rex: Rex. Cassie.
Shawn-d: Those are the names we gave you.
Belle: For the Gemini twins.
Belle: Is that where you came from? You came here the night of the Gemini meteor showers.
Belle: See? Here.
Belle: Wait, wait.
Shawn-d: He drew -- he drew the Gemini constellation.
Belle: [Whispering] Shawn, maybe that's where they're from.
Shawn-d: You know how far away those stars are? Light-years, okay? No one could survive a trip that long, that distance.
Belle: Do you remember when we found them? They weren't -- they weren't even alive. We had to give them mouth-to-mouth and CPR to revive them. Maybe they'd been frozen for the long trip.
Shawn-d: No, I-I still think there must be some other explanation.
Rex: Gemini. Gemini.
Belle: Shawn. This could be it. This could be the proof that we need that they're aliens.
John: "Gemini. Third zodiac constellation, represented pictorially as the twins castor and Pollux. Located on the opposite side of the milky way from Taurus and Orion." Okay. So what does it all mean? What's Stefano trying to tell us here? And what does it have to do with outer space, the DiMera satellite... And this key? I knew it.
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 DiMera痴' possession again.
John: Don't you worry, doc. I知 going to get to the bottom of this.
Nicole: It always surprises me.
Victor: What does?
Nicole: When you show your vulnerability. When you actually get jealous.
Victor: I知 not jealous in the least.
Nicole: Oh, no? Then why do you care if I知 seeing someone else?
Victor: Why the hell do you think I care? Because I知 smitten. Because I知 afraid you'll leave me.
Nicole: Oh, that'd be so farfetched.
Victor: I won't be made a fool of, Nicole -- not by you, not by anyone. So why don't we put our cards on the table?
Nicole: Sure, boss, whatever you say.
Victor: And don't be flip about it, not about this.
Victor: Well? Talk.
Nicole: I知 not sure what you're asking me to say.
Victor: You know exactly what I知 asking. Have you stopped seeing Colin Murphy?
Colin: So... What are you going to do with those photos, Tony?
Tony: Well, you're familiar with the American sports term covering your bases?
Colin: I am.
Tony: Well, that's exactly what I知 doing, with your help.
Colin: You know I知 in your corner, Tony, but to see Nicole...
Tony: Is there a problem?
Colin: She's not my type.
Tony: Oh, dear. How inconvenient. What do you prefer, brunettes?
Colin: Ha ha. There happens to be another woman I知 interested in -- also blond, though very different. I wouldn't want any complications to arise between us.
Tony: A man in your position should be very careful about his romantic entanglements. Are you sure you can trust this woman?
Jennifer: Have a little faith in me, would you? How could you think that I would pursue Colin after seeing him with Nicole? And he claims that he has all these real feelings for me, but then I catch him making out with Nicole and offering her a ring. What was that about?
Jack: And why was there a hidden photographer obviously not from the press pool snapping their pictures?
Jack: Colin may be setting Nicole up, which is why I知 warning you to be careful tonight, not let this thing with Colin get out of hand.
Jennifer: I know what I知 doing, Jack, and this time, Colin is the one being set up, remember?
Jack: Well... I知 sure, but just to be safe, for you.
Jennifer: What is this?
Colin: Don't worry. I won't take any unnecessary risk. If there's a problem -- some reason to be suspicious of the lady -- I値l find out tonight when I知 with her.
Tony: Our operation cannot be compromised.
Colin: I won't let you down.
Jennifer: All right. Let me guess. Button mike.
Jack: And a beautiful brooch, all in one, so I値l be able to overhear and try and describe everything Colin says.
Jennifer: [Whispers] he's watching us. You know what, Jack? This was really a big mistake.
Jack: Wait a minute. What are you asking for here?
Jennifer: I知 not asking for anything. You had a chance and you blew it.
Jack: Oh, come on. We were so compatible. We used to make each other laugh.
Jennifer: Well, obviously, I am not laughing now. Do you see me laughing? And you know what? Another thing, I can't be bought. So why don't you take these earrings and bring them back and leave me alone?
[Sighs] I don't know why he does this to me.
Colin: You okay?
Jennifer: Yeah, I知 fine. I just wish that he would obsess over someone else, because he's driving me crazy.
Colin: He's not one to give up easily, is he?
Jennifer: No, but you know what? I am determined not to let him get to me. Now, you promised me a cozy dinner for two.
Jennifer: Are you ready for our evening on the town tonight?
Colin: I just finished up my shift, so I知 all yours.
Jennifer: And where are you taking me?
Colin: It's a surprise.
Jack: Surprise, huh? Well, I might just have one for you, dr. Dundee.
Nicole: Why would you think I知 still seeing Colin Murphy? I gave him the heave-ho, remember? Not my type.
Victor: When I met up with you earlier at Salem place, you seemed a bit on edge. Was there a problem?
Nicole: No, of course not.
Victor: I hate to think you're being dishonest with me, Nicole.
Nicole: You've got to be kidding.
Colin: You like?
Nicole: It's beautiful.
Colin: It's Celtic -- a Claddagh ring. You wear it facing one way for friendship, and when the relationship turns more romantic, you turn it the other way to have this part point towards your heart.
Nicole: And which way do you suggest I wear this? In the direction of friendship or romance?
Colin: I値l show you.
Colin: Friendship... Until you're ready for more.
Nicole: Don't be so paranoid, Victor. If I say I知 not seeing someone, I知 not seeing someone.
Victor: You have a history, Nicole. I know you. I know how you think. I know how you react. You'll do whatever you have to to get what you want, which is fine, except when you're dealing with me. I have to know that I can trust you.
Nicole: I assure you, you can. Wait a minute. I知 starting to get the picture now. You're the one who put Colin up to that.
Victor: Put Colin up to what? Talk to me, Nicole. What are you hiding from me? Dada
Jack: Uh, so that's it? That's -- that's all you know about the mugging?
Woman: Excuse me, but I just gave you a ton of information, and I don't think you were even listening. I have a patient to attend to.
Jack: Just when I thought we were back on track.
Jack: Jennifer, what have you done?
Jennifer: Well, I guess I misspoke when I said "night on the town."
Colin: It's merely the shank of the evening.
Jennifer: The shank, huh?
Jennifer: I, uh... Sure hope the weather holds up.
Colin: It has to. Nothing can upset this evening. I want it to be perfect.
Victor: I知 waiting, Nicole.
Nicole: There's nothing to tell. Just that Colin called me before and asked to meet me in Salem place this afternoon. I could tell he wanted to pick up from where we left off, but I told him it was over between us, that I wanted nothing at all to do with him.
Victor: I see.
Nicole: Victor, he's the kind of guy that won't take no for an answer, but I made it crystal clear. I don't think I値l be hearing from dr. Colin Murphy again.
Victor: Well, Nicole, I知 pleased to tell you that if you want a future with me, you've passed the first test.
Tony: Is this some kind of test, father? You said this box contained the key to my past and to my future. Did you know that somehow John would get his hands on it? And does the key have some connection to John as well and to Marlena? Why is my father so fascinated with these riddles? And what game is he playing now? What does it all mean?
Tony: I値l get it, Eliana.
John: Hi there. You look surprised.
Tony: I am. I wasn't expecting you. Please, uh, to what do I owe this pleasure?
John: We have to talk about the Gemini twins.
Belle: Shawn, this could be the breakthrough that we have been looking for. Think about it. They crashed in Salem right along with the Gemini meteors.
Shawn-d: Okay, it's an interesting coincidence. I agree, but there is --
Belle: How come they don't even know English, but they know the word Gemini? It makes perfect sense. The Gemini constellation has to be their home.
Shawn-d: Okay, how about this? How come they know so much about computers, okay? They easily could have been on-line researching Gemini.
Belle: Why would they look up Gemini in the first place? How come they freak out every time they see a k-e-y?
Shawn-d: I can't explain it all, okay? But whoever they are, they obviously need help.
Belle: Okay. Okay, maybe they do, and we'll get them help eventually, but let's just stick with the plan for right now. We brought them here to relax before we turn them in to the authorities, which I don't think we should do anyway, okay? They're not ready to be around other people right now, and who knows what the government would do to them with all their tests and probes?
Rex: Belle right. Rex, Cassie, Belle, Shawn. No one else.
Cassie: No one else.
Belle: See, Shawn? They understand.
[Knock on door]
Shawn-d: All right, all right, relax, relax. I値l see who it is.
Shawn-d: What the heck are you doing here? Hehe could that be a clue?
Shawn-d: Mimi, Kevin, hi. What are you guys doing here?
Mimi: We rented jet skis that come out to the island for a day.
Kevin: But we had a slight miscalculation concerning the weather... And the time.
Mimi: Yeah, no kidding. Shades of what happened last summer on the island when that hurricane hit.
Kevin: Being this is the Midwest, I seriously doubt we're in for a hurricane. A tornado isn't out of the realm of possibility. However, to me, it just looks like a good old-fashioned extremely volatile thunderstorm.
Mimi: Which is why we don't want to go back across the lake on our jet skis right now, and we saw this cabin, and here you are! It's amazing.
Shawn-d: Yeah, okay, no, really, I don't --
Mimi: Hi, Belle! Oh, my gosh, you're here, too. New friends? Hi, I知 Mimi. This is Kevin. And you guys are... Okay. Why am I getting the feeling something very strange is happening?
Belle: Because something very strange is happening, Meems.
Mimi: Who are these guys -- locals?
Belle: No, they're from just about as far away as you can get -- you know, the other side of the Milky Way, the Gemini constellation.
Mimi: What? Oh, my god, you guys -- you guys are the aliens!
Tony: So, what about the Gemini twins?
John: Oh, come on. Don't pretend like you don't know. Gemini -- the twins. It was the star constellation embroidered on the pillow your father gave my wife. Oh, come on. What are you acting so surprised for? You know what this is about, and you know why your father sent my wife that message.
Tony: I have no idea. My father was a wealthy man. He had roots all over the world. But to the best of my knowledge, the DiMera Empire did not extend itself to the stars.
John: What about that satellite Stefano has up there orbiting the earth? That extends the DiMera Empire quite a bit, doesn't it? What can you tell me about that?
Jennifer: I can't even see the stars tonight.
Colin: It's too cloudy.
Jennifer: Yeah, and the wind is picking up. You know, if the storm comes in, we're going to have to head back.
Colin: No matter. I'd enjoy it wherever I ran... As long as I知 with you. I知 sure there's no tempest we can't weather -- the two of us.
Jennifer: You're very poetic, dr. Murphy.
Jennifer: If I ask you a question, will you tell me the truth?
Colin: Complete and total. Ask away.
Jennifer: I thought that I saw you earlier at Salem place with Nicole Walker. Are you still seeing her?
Nicole: What do you mean, I passed the test? Victor, frankly, that gives me the creeps.
Victor: I知 going to be straight with you, Nicole. Before I even think of putting an engagement ring on your finger, before you decide if you want to spend your future with me, you have to know exactly what I知 offering you.
Nicole: That sounds like a business deal. Should I call my lawyer?
Victor: I知 sure a lawyer will have to get involved at some point. There's a lot more at stake here than you realize.
Nicole: At stake?
Victor: I値l be blunt. If you marry me, you will enjoy financial independence.
Nicole: Hold it, I -- I知 already financially independent. In my various accounts, I already have plenty --
Victor: A drop in the bucket compared to the fortune you'll have if you marry me and the power that you'll wield from the position that you'll be in.
Nicole: And what position is that?
Victor: The position of being one of the most wealthy women in the world. You will want for nothing, Nicole. Your every dream, your every whim will come true.
Victor: As my wife, you'll be very well provided for in my will.
Nicole: Okay, let's not go there.
Victor: I知 just being realistic. You're a young, healthy woman, and I樽... A couple of years older than you are. And from actuarial terms, I知 sure you're going to outlive me. But I just want you to know that after I知 gone, you'll have the same wealth, power, and position that you enjoy when I知 alive. Nicole, I知 offering you a future that women can only dream of.
Nicole: Hmm. I'd say.
Victor: But it comes at a price.
Nicole: Name it. What price do I have to pay?
Jack: Did Jennifer palm that pin? Did she run out of here with that bug to nail Colin on her own? Well... She must have taken my warnings about Colin seriously. Of course, that means that she could be in more danger than I thought.
Colin: You seem distracted. Anything wrong?
Jennifer: I was just wondering why you won't answer my question. What about you and Nicole? I mean, I know that you brought her to green mountain lodge to make me jealous, and you were using her, but is that what you're doing again? Are you trying to make me jealous, Colin?
Colin: Look, it's not what you think.
Jennifer: How do you know what I think?
Colin: Why would I use Nicole again to make you jealous if it didn't work the first time? I知 not a glutton for punishment.
Jennifer: So it was just a coincidence that you ran into her -- just an innocent little meeting, right?
Colin: Right. But please, I don't want tonight to be about Nicole. I don't want it to be about anyone else but you. I can't tell you how long I've waited to sit with you by the fire like this again, to see your hair blowing in the breeze, your eyes sparkling in the firelight, your lips so beautiful, so tempting. No woman has ever stirred the feelings in me that you have. I think about you all day, dream about you at night. I've been waiting so long to do this.
Jennifer: That was too close for comfort.
Colin: It's definitely going to storm.
Jennifer: I think that, uh... I think that we should head back home right now.
Colin: Yeah, we'd better take cover from it at once.
Colin: I know the perfect place.
Belle: Mimi. Mimi, wake up.
Kevin: Looks like she's coming around.
Belle: Mimi, come on.
Mimi: Aliens! I知 sorry; I just -- I just still can't believe it. I mean, may the force be with you. Live long and prosper. Um, so what is your mission here?
Shawn-d: No, no.
Belle: No, no, no. It's okay.
Shawn-d: It's okay. It's all right.
Belle: Trust us. They're our friends.
Mimi: Yeah, and any friends of theirs are friends of ours.
Belle: Right. Friend, like Philip, remember?
Shawn-d: Yeah, friends. All of us... Are friends.
Mimi: Ha ha ha ha ha. They must have a satellite dish on the spaceship. What do you think?
Belle: At least everyone's laughing, right?
Shawn-d: Whoa, whoa, no, no. Hey, hey, it's all right. It's all right. Listen, listen, that's just a storm, okay? That's outside. We're inside. You're safe, okay?
Kevin: And I knew it was going to storm today. It's been so hot and humid. You know what happens when the warm, moist low pressure collides with a stationary cool front -- bam.
Shawn-d: All right, Kevin --
Belle: Kev, just take it easy, okay? I don't think the twins know what thunder and lightning are. They probably didn't have it on the star that they were from in the Gemini constellation.
Kevin: Uh, actually, stars are more like the sun. No living, breathing creature could survive on a star. The temperature's way too hot.
Belle: Well, maybe they're from a planet near the Gemini.
Shawn-d: There you have it. Scientific confirmation. What more could you want, Belle?
Mimi: [Chortles] maybe they, um... Maybe they come from planet cantaloupe.
Mimi: Amazing how they talk.
Belle: You can teach them anything -- English, French. But whatever you do or say, there is one word that completely freaks them out, and you can't say it around them.
Mimi: What is it?
Belle: [Whispers] key.
Belle: Wait, it's okay. Mimi didn't mean to say that. She just -- she wasn't thinking. She promises she's never going to say that word again. None of us are. Do you feel better?
Mimi: You sure have a way with them.
Shawn-d: Yeah, listen, I知 going to go check up on that storm to see how close it is, make sure it's not kicking up too much chop, keeping us from sailing back to Salem on the "fancy face."
Kevin: I値l go with you; make sure you don't get blown away.
Mimi: I sure am intrigued with these way cool, really hot-looking E.T.S, but what's the big deal with them about...
Belle: Mimi, please, put them back in your pocket, okay?
Mimi: What is the big deal about the k-word?
Belle: I don't know. Why do you get so freaked out every time you see... You know? Can you tell me? Can you show me?
Tony: Well, to answer your question, yes, I was aware that my father put a satellite into orbit.
John: Mm. And as to why he would do that?
Tony: I haven't a clue. I have no idea what my father was going to use the satellite for. I wish I did. All I can tell you is what I知 going to do with the satellite and the space technology I inherited.
John: Am I supposed to guess?
Tony: Well, I知 going to help with the DiMera foundation.
John: Ah, to conserve natural resources for third world countries, yeah. Sami filled me in on that.
Tony: Oh, yes. It's all very legal and philanthropic.
John: Yeah, sure. Wow, it's amazing. Going into outer space to carry on your charity work. It's very impressive.
Tony: Yes. We do what we can.
John: Well, let me know if I can help. I just want to do my part.
Tony: You know what? Perhaps we can work together, use our knowledge of space to solve the problems and mysteries here on earth.
John: Perhaps we can. We can call it the Gemini project.
We need to get things back to normal again - fast.
Jennifer: Whoo! Oh, my goodness.
Colin: Ha ha. This is nice and cozy.
Colin: Let's just bring the party in here.
Jennifer: Oh, my goodness. Whoa. Oh, it was convenient that lantern was here. Boy, it is really coming down.
Colin: If it keeps up, we'll be stuck here all night.
Jennifer: Why do you say that?
Colin: Let's just call it wishful thinking, love.
Victor: The first thing you should know is that the price is non-negotiable. I have but one demand, but you must live up to it. If we're to have a future, if we're to be together, there can be no other man. You'll be mine and mine alone. I won't share you with anyone. If we get married, you cannot see or be with any other man. There'll be no cheating; there'll be no clandestine affairs. Is that understood?
Nicole: Yeah, I understand.
Victor: Well, that's comfort, and it's your insurance policy -- a policy that will default in the most dire way possible if you ever cheat on me, Nicole. Make no mistake -- you don't want to face the consequences of being unfaithful to Victor Kiriakis.
John's voice: We'll call it the Gemini project.
Tony: Why the Gemini? What could John black know about this? Damn. I got to solve this mystery before he does.
John: Very strange. DiMera showed no recognition when I mentioned Gemini. It's like he had no idea what the hell I was talking about. Maybe this is just as much a mystery to him as it is to me... Or maybe he knows a lot more than I think.
[Sighs] yeah, this is all Stefano痴 doing. Ha ha ha ha. The old man thinks he's going to have the last laugh here, but I知 all over this. I知 going to stay one step ahead of Stefano in this saga. Yep, the Gemini project just got a lot more interesting.
Belle: It looks like the storm's getting pretty bad.
Mimi: Yeah, it's really scaring your buddies there.
Belle: Where are Shawn and Kevin? I知 starting to get worried.
Mimi: I知 not. After all they went through on the island last year, they can handle anything. I bet they're dry as a bone right now.
Mimi: Or not.
Belle: How does it look? Can we go back?
Shawn-d: No way. It's a monster storm out there. There's no way we're going to be able to get back till tomorrow morning.
Mimi: So we have to stay here tonight?
Kevin: That's the way it looks. The good news is we have this cool cabin to stay in.
Mimi: We'll have a sleepover. Come on, Kev, I値l get you out of those wet clothes.
Belle: I hope our cell phones work. I mean, we're going to have to call our parents and ask permission.
Shawn-d: How could they say no? They want us to stay safe.
Belle: Looks like they're arguing over that drawing Cassie made. Can I see it?
Shawn-d: What is that? And what the heck does it mean?
