Days of Our Lives Transcript Friday 8/30/02
[elevator bells dings]
Tony: Oh, Brandon. Have you by any chance seen Dr. Murphy?
Brandon: I think he's taking a break.
Tony: Rough night?
Brandon: For a lot of people. But I'm sure that doesn't come as a surprise to you.
Tony: I'm sorry?
Brandon: My sister was shot tonight. She's in a coma.
Tony: Nicole? Oh, my God, I -- I didn't know. How did it happen?
Brandon: Salem Inn... Victor Kiriakis -- does that ring a bell?
Tony: Actually, no.
Brandon: Your father put a hit out on Victor. My sister was caught in the crossfire. She's fighting for her life right now.
Tony: Wait a minute. I understand that you'd be upset about what's happened to your sister, but how can my father be involved? I mean, the man's been dead for months.
Brandon: Well, if it wasn't Stefano, then maybe you had something to do with it.
Tony: I beg your pardon.
Brandon: And if i find out that you are in any way responsible, I don't care if you're Lexie's brother. You won't live to regret it.
Tony: The sooner Sami comes between you and my sister, the better.
Sami: You know, visiting hours ended half an hour ago, so you don't really have to stick around, Lexie -- though, of course, we both know that the only reason you are is so you can throw your slutty self at Brandon.
Lexie: Sami, I --
Sami: Which is pretty damn nervy, considering your family is responsible for what happened to his sister.
Lexie: Well, speaking of what happened, you were actually there, weren't you, Sami, at the scene of the crime? I'm sure I'm not the only person wondering if you didn't make sure that poor Nicole would be caught in the crossfire when those shots were fired.
Belle: Mom, what's the matter?
Marlena: Belle, Shawn, you must never tell anybody about this key. Do you understand?
Belle: Mom, what is it? What's wrong? Are you okay?
[Knock on door]
John: What do you got for me?
Marlena: Uh... Nothing's wrong. Uh, I was just thinking that... Rather than take them to the hospital, I think we should protect them from, you know, all that chaos.
Belle: You're definitely right. I don't think they need that right now.
Marlena: Yeah. Physically, they seem to be just fine, but psychologically, I -- I don't think they need to be around the public at large.
Belle: I felt that all along. That's why Shawn and I waited so long to tell anyone about them.
Marlena: Yeah. Rex, could I have the key back for a moment?
Rex: No. No key.
Marlena: All right. That's fine. You hold on to it. We'll, uh, we'll figure out what that opens at some point.
Belle: Nice try, mom, but he never lets that thing out of his sight.
Marlena: Obviously. Well, if you two are all right, I'm going to head on home. I want to talk to John about this, and maybe we can come up with some kind of a long-term plan to help Cassie and Rex.
Belle: Thank you, mom.
Marlena: Yeah. Mm, sweet girl.
Shawn-D: Yeah, and, uh, good luck.
Marlena: Yeah. It was a pleasure meeting you both. I'm sure that our paths will cross again soon.
Cassie: Cross again soon.
Rex: May the force be with you.
Marlena: Well... Yes. And you.
Belle: Well, that went a lot better than I thought.
Shawn-D: Yeah. Yeah, your mom's pretty cool.
Belle: Yeah, I guess i could have told her sooner. I just didn't know how she was going to handle it, you know? A couple of aliens hiding out in your garage with us all summer?
Belle: I guess my mom doesn't think they are -- aliens, I mean.
Shawn-D: Do you...Still?
Belle: I don't know what i think about a lot of things right now.
Shawn-D: Yeah, that's how i was feeling a little while ago myself.
Belle: I knew something was bothering you.
Shawn-D: Yeah, it's no big deal. It's, uh, it's all right now.
Belle: Shawn, why didn't you tell me about it?
Shawn-D: 'Cause it had to do with my dad, and, uh... We worked it out.
Shawn-D: Yeah. You know, we, uh, we have a lot of people we can count on. We're really lucky.
Belle: We are.
Belle: I mean, we really are. Shawn, my mom was really great about Cassie and Rex. I mean, when i told her about them, she took it really well. But when she came in here with us and she started talking to them, do you think she was acting strange? I mean, more than to be expected?
Shawn-D: Well, what do you expect? 'Cause this whole situation is pretty strange.
Belle: I don't know. I don't know, I just -- I got the feeling that something was bothering her.
John: Come on in, Russell.
Russell: We alone?
John: Yes. The wife and daughter are out.
Russell: You know, I want to thank you for your discretion in all this, John.
John: Yeah, well, our interests are mutual. We're both committed to finding out about the key, the satellite, and ensuring the success of the Gemini project.
Russell: Yeah, well, to that end, I've got a colleague tracking down satellite photographs of San Cristóbal Island.
John: Mm, the island where Marlena was held captive by Stefano DiMera.
Russell: Yeah, I'm hoping your stepdaughter can identify the island in our photographs and tell us if it's the same one she saw in the pictures at Tony DiMera's house.
John: Sami's involvement with Tony DiMera -- it galls me that he has been able to manipulate her like this. He must have known right away, sensed right off the bat that he could work his charms on her.
Russell: Is she, uh, having an affair? Is that what you're saying?
John: I don't think it's gone that far yet, Russell. But if she gets any closer... I just can't believe she would be so stupid to let herself get sucked in like this.
Lexie: What's the problem, Sami? Did I hit a little too close to home?
Sami: I don't have to listen to this.
Lexie: Sami, I wouldn't bother going to Brandon right now. You're the last person he wants to see.
Sami: Oh, because you know him so well -- what he wants, what he needs.
Lexie: I do know this one thing. I know that whatever the two of you had is over. You're through. You'll be lucky to get the time of day out of Brandon.
Sami: Because he told you that?
Lexie: Oh, yes. Brandon and I are very close. He tells me everything.
Sami: But i'm the one who broke his heart, right?
Sami: So, how close is very close?
Lexie: Brandon. Wait, Brandon, Brandon. Wait, wait, wait. What's wrong?
Tony: Oh, excuse me. Would you know if Dr. Murphy has returned from his break?
Woman: I'm sorry. I wouldn't know.
[Elevator bell dings]
Sami: Tony! Tony, this must be destiny. I was just about to call you. I -- uh, uh, can we talk?
Tony: Certainly. So... Why are you so upset?
Sami: Well, i am desperate, Tony. I really need your help. You have to come through for me.
Tony: Oh. This certainly must be indeed destiny, huh? Because I need your help, too.
Sami: So, what can I for you, Tony?
Tony: I'll get to it. Why don't you tell me first why you're so desperate?
Sami: Well, i told you a couple of weeks ago that, um, Victor Kiriakis has something on me. Well, now he's not the only one. Nicole Walker has something else on me, and the stakes have been raised since the last time I saw you.
Tony: Oh. I don't think you have much to worry about Nicole. From what I understand, the poor girl just slipped into a coma.
Sami: Yeah, well, Victor is still on the case. You said you were going to help me get Brandon back, and so far you haven't done anything.
Tony: Well, these things take time.
Sami: Time is one thing i don't have. Tony, I need your help, and I need it now.
Tony: Nothing would give me more pleasure. But you do understand that i expect your help in return.
Sami: At this point, I'm willing to do anything. Just name it.
Tony: Your stepfather stole something from me. I want you to get it back.
Cassie: No place like home.
Belle: Yeah, well, we sure could use a pair of ruby slippers right now.
Cassie: Need home.
Belle: Look, I know you guys want to go home, and i really wish we could help, but right now, we don't exactly know where home is.
Rex: Home. Need home.
Shawn-D: Yeah, and even if we could send them to... Wherever it is, I'm not so sure that's the safest place for them right now.
Belle: Shawn's right. You guys need to stay with us just a little while longer. Besides, we promised my mom we'd keep an eye on you.
Belle: Shawn, do you suppose they have a mom? Or maybe they don't even know what that word means.
Cassie: Mom. No, no.
Rex: Wish we --
Belle: No mom, no dad, no home. Shawn, that means all they have is each other. Can you imagine?
Marlena: John? Honey, are you home? John?
Belle: Mom, i -- I tried to talk to them about home and what it was like there, and rex went over and picked up the hamster's cage and held it up like he was trying to tell me something. I hate to even think it, but maybe they were locked up somewhere.
Marlena: Some-- Cassie, Rex, i don't want to bring back any painful memories for you, but tell me one thing, could you? Were you ever locked up at home?
Rex: Locked... With a key.
Cassie: No, no key.
Belle: Mom, are you okay? The way you're looking at this key -- have you seen it before? Now you listen to me, and listen very carefully, both of you. You are to tell no one that you have seen this key. Do you understand?
John: Doc, I'm ri....
Marlena: Oh. Oh.
John: It's all right. What's going on?
Marlena: The key, the key. I may have information about that key you fou-- oh, I-I'm sorry. Sorry.
John: Marlena, this is Agent Russell Spector.
Marlena: You're the man that interviewed my daughter and her boyfriend after the meteor shower, aren't you?
John: Russell and i go way back. He's doing the legwork, trying to find out whatever he can about the key.
Marlena: Oh, I see.
John: And he's got connections -- air traffic control, air force. That's the reason why we stopped Lexie from leaving the country with Isaac.
Marlena: Oh. So, listen, Doc, anything you have to say about the key or the DiMeras, you can say it in front of Russell. Hey, Russell, same thing goes for you and my wife. Nothing said here leaves the room. Doc? Sweetheart, it's okay to talk freely. Now is not the time to keep secrets.
Lexie: Okay, uh, it's just the two of us now, so tell me what's wrong. Has there been a change with Nicole?
Lexie: What? What then?
Brandon: I just had an altercation with your brother. I accused him of having something to do with Nicole's shooting.
Brandon: Not that there's any proof. Just --
Brandon: I hate this, Lexie. I don't want to be angry with the whole world. I mean, my sister lying in that room, unconscious... Helpless. I mean, it's made me realize how your whole life can change in -- in just a few seconds. That's why i want to come to terms with some people, think things through.
Lexie: Are you talking about me, about what happened between us?
Brandon: I know in retrospect that it shouldn't have happened. But in the moment, it was what we both needed. Although it didn't do a hell of a lot for my ego that you could make love to me, and then in the next breath want me to believe that it never happened because you choose to love Abe, the man who ruined my life.
Lexie: Look, it's not a choice. It just...Is. I'm so sorry if I hurt you.
Brandon: But you do wish that it never happened, right? You're not backtracking on that, are you?
Lexie: I was afraid this would happen, that crossing the line would destroy our friendship, and that's the last thing i want, Brandon. Please tell me we're still friends, that i haven't hurt you too much.
Lexie: I still can't believe this is happening to me.
Brandon: It's going to be okay. Come here, sit down.
Lexie: He knows.
Brandon: About what?
Lexie: About us, last night. You didn't tell him, did you?
Brandon: No, of course not. I mean, you heard everything i said when he came in the room.
Lexie: But he knew i was there, Brandon. He found the scarf.
Brandon: I was so sure i covered for you.
Brandon: Friends have to abide by a certain code of behavior, treat each other right.
Lexie: Yeah, yeah, of course you're right. I am so sorry, Brandon. Look, this was all my fault, really.
Brandon: No, no, you don't understand. That's not what I meant. Not at all.
Sami: So here it comes. This is exactly what my family warned me about.
Tony: Hmm. Oh, you're angry now?
Sami: Well, you're trying to blackmail me.
Tony: No, no. You're being blackmailed by Kiriakis, among others, for ongoing misdeeds. All I want is what was taken from me, what's mine.
Sami: What, are we going to play 20 questions now? What is it?
Tony: A key.
Sami: A key? To a safety deposit box? A new Jaguar? What?
Tony: That's not important. But I can tell you this -- it's no use to John Black.
Sami: Well, then why don't you just ask him for it? I thought you two were friends.
Tony: Friends? Ha ha! Yes. It's a facade. What he says to my face, what he does behind my back -- he breaks into my house in his leisure time. One small favor, Samantha. Is that really too much to ask in return for what I'm going to do for you?
John: Are you still seeing Tony DiMera?
Sami: Where did that come from?
John: Your mother and i are concerned about your relationship with Tony because we love you, and if he is using you to try to get to --
John: Samantha, you grew up without your mother because of Stefano DiMera. He took her to that island and he put her to sleep.
Sami: And you think -- you think that -- no.
John: That's who those people are. That's who Tony is. That's what they do. They take and they destroy. Now, do you want to be a part of that? Do you want to help these people ruin your mother's life again?
Sami: I do have a conscience, Tony.
Tony: Oh, i don't doubt that.
Sami: Well, then why would you think that i would let you use me to undermine my own family? No. No way. That is where I draw the line.
Marlena: So... Whoever these kids are, they clearly had a troubled past. They have virtually no language skills, and they've had very little social contact.
John: I knew Belle was lying to me all along.
Marlena: Honey, she had to protect them.
John: Always keeping something from me. Ah, stop it.
[Cellular phone rings]
John: That's Voorhees about the satellite photos. Excuse me, will you?
Russell: Well, that's an interesting turn of events.
Marlena: I'm sorry?
Russell: Well, when i questioned your daughter and the Brady kid that night, they never mentioned anything about this, uh, young man and woman you described.
Marlena: Well, she was afraid of what the government might want to do to them.
Russell: Dr. Evans, this is a top-level security concern.
Marlena: What does that mean?
Russell: I need to know more about these kids. And you're a psychiatrist. I value your opinion.
Marlena: Children who have grown up without human contact during their formative years -- feral children -- lose the ability to learn language forever. That isn't true with these kids. They are communicating, and they're improving. And I really believe they're human, and they've had some exposure to language. And I'm sure that if we treat them gently and patiently and let them have some time, they'll tell their own story.
Russell: Yes, well, i, uh, I appreciate the information, Dr. Evans.
Marlena: Are you leaving?
Russell: Yes. Would you, uh, uh, please tell John that I'll be in touch?
Marlena: Are you going after the children?
Russell: Dr. Evans, you can trust me.
[Cellular phone rings]
Marlena: Belle, are you at Shawn's?
Belle: Yeah. You told us to sit tight. What's going on?
Marlena: I'm sorry. I made a terrible mistake. There's a government agent who may be on his way over there right now.
Belle: Oh, my god, no!
Shawn-D: What's wrong?
Marlena: Can you get the twins out of there, out of the garage?
Belle: Where am i supposed to take them?
Marlena: I don't know. Wherever you think might be safe. Not the penthouse.
Belle: Okay. Okay, I have an idea, but I need to check with Shawn first.
Marlena: All right. I'll call you back in a few minutes so John and I can meet you. Please hurry.
Belle: Shawn, we need to get Cassie and Rex out of here A.S.A.P. My mom said there's a chance a government agent could be after them.
Shawn-D: Whoa. What? How could they have found out they were here? Your mom didn't tell, did --
Belle: Look, I didn't get all the details, okay, but I was thinking we could take them up to the hilltop.
Shawn-E: Why there?
Belle: They keep saying "want home," so I thought --
Shawn-D: What, that we could just put them in our bike baskets and fly off in front of the moon? Belle, this isn't "E.T.", Okay? The mother ship's not going to just drop down and pick them up.
Belle: Look, the hilltop is about as close to home as we're going to get, and it's isolated up there, so they should be safe.
Rex: Safe here.
Belle: Look, guys, Shawn and I are going to take you for a little drive. How does that sound?
Shawn-D: Okay. All right, listen, we gotta go. Come on.
Belle: It's okay, it's okay.
Shawn-D: It's all right, it's all right.
John: Where's Spector?
Marlena: He went after them. It's all my fault. I shouldn't have said a word about it.
John: Slow down, slow down. What do you mean he went after them? Who are you talking about?
Marlena: The children, Cassie and Rex. They're not emotionally ready to be around other people right now, especially a government agent who wants to do invasive tests, poke and prod them.
John: When you first came in, you mentioned something about a key. Now, what does that have to do with these kids?
Marlena: The kids, the twins, had an identical key to the one that you got from Tony DiMera. I thought maybe I could get it from them and show it to you.
John: Why did you call them twins?
Marlena: Well, I-I guess we assumed they are twins. They seem to be about the same age, and they arrived during the Gemini meteor shower, and so Belle's been calling them the Gemini twins.
John: And you left Belle and Shawn alone with them. What the hell were you thinking?
Marlena: John, where are you going?
John: Where am I going? I'm going to protect my daughter. I'm going to get Belle and Shawn the hell away from those twins.
Brandon: Anything I've done, Lexie, I'm always thinking about what's best for you.
Lexie: I know, I know. Look, I can't imagine my life without you in it, Brandon. I don't ever want to lose you.
Brandon: Well, hey, we talked this through. We're cool. I know we would be. We will always be friends. And it's not an empty promise like it turned out to be with Samantha. I mean, I trusted her... Really trusted her. She said things and did things to make me believe that she was finally ready to be in a relationship with me, and then... She did a total 180. I'm sorry. I shouldn't be telling you this.
Lexie: Yes, you should. We just said we wouldn't hold back on each other.
Brandon: No, if i have issues with Samantha, I should tell her to her face.
Lexie: Wait, wait. Where are you going?
Brandon: She was there tonight, Lexie. She was at the Salem Inn when shots were fired. She could've died tonight. What if I didn't tell her how I feel?
Lexie: No, no. Brandon, no.
Brandon: I have to do this. I have to clear the air between us.
Tony: You know, i'm not trying to undermine your family. On the contrary... Hopefully, when the right time comes, you will build your own family with your son, Brandon, with my help. Now, if you refuse to help me, well, I'll have no choice except to go to your father and bring charges against John Black for breaking and entering.
Sami: Why are you bringing my father into this? Oh, I see. You want me to tremble in fear that if I don't cooperate, you're going to tattle to my father and tell him all my secrets. Well, it's not going to work, Tony, because I'm not afraid of you.
Tony: You see yourself as a bad person, Sami.
Sami: Of course not.
Tony: You will do whatever you can to survive, won't you? Well, that's what I'm doing, and this vendetta with the DiMeras -- it's just bringing tension to your mother and john. And if i take back that key and all it symbolizes, it will remove the tension that's in their marriage. Do you understand what I'm saying? So why don't you help me, Sami? Why don't you do this for me?
Marlena: John, wait a minute. Wait a minute. Please stop!
John: I'm not going to wait. I'm not going to stop. I'm not going to leave it to chance.
Marlena: Wait a minute. Let me tell you something.
John: No. Doc, come on.
Marlena: Please, one second. Belle and Shawn have been with these twins almost the entire summer, and they are fine. Nothing has gone wrong, okay? But if you barge in there, you'll make Belle angry and you'll upset the twins for no reason.
John: Fine, fine, fine, fine, I'll -- I'll chill out for now. But you do understand my reaction, don't you? Tony comes to town with this key before the meteor showers, and then the twins come to town during the meteor showers with their own identical key, and in the meantime, Stefano gives you a pillow with the Gemini constellation on the back of it?
Marlena: I connect the dots myself, okay?
Marlena: But trust me, the twins are not evil incarnate. John, I've met them. They're innocent vulnerable children.
John: With my innocent daughter.
Marlena: John, they're not --
John: You are giving them the benefit of the doubt, and I understand that, but I got to go with my gut on this. Now, they're connected to Stefano DiMera -- I don't know how, but I know they are -- and I'm not going to leave this to chance. I'm going to Bo and Hope's.
Marlena: John, I warned them.
John: Oh, no.
Marlena: I told Belle he might be on his way to them. I told Belle to move the twins to a safe place. I'll call her cell phone.
Marlena: Uh, not even voice mail. The phone's dead. I don't know where they are.
Shawn-D: I hope they don't spot the truck.
Belle: What's that?
Shawn-D: Probably just a plane or something.
Belle: Oh, my God, Shawn, that's not a plane. Relief.
Belle: Do you guys know what that is? Shawn, maybe they've made contact. Do you suppose?
Belle: They kept telling us that they wanted to go home. Maybe they knew that tonight was the night the spaceship was going to come back for them.
Shawn-D: Okay, if i wasn't seeing this with my very own eyes --
Belle: Does that mean you're going to stop making those E.T. jokes?
Shawn-D: All right, you know what? Maybe we shouldn't be standing here, okay? What if they come down...
Belle: Shawn, do you remember that dream i told you about where I was whisked off to another world?
Shawn-D: Yeah, okay, don't tell me that --
Belle: No, no, no, no. I'm not going with them, but I just think that we were supposed to be here, you know, to see all of this.
Shawn-D: Well, you know what? They have to go, all right? We have to say goodbye. Well, guys, it's been fun. Hasta la vista... Baby. Rex. Okay, Rex, you still got that killer grip, buddy. It's okay.
Belle: Come on, Cassie, the ship's going to take you home, right? No more tears... For any of us. Come on.
Marlena: It's only been a few minutes. They can't have gotten very far. I'll try Shawn.
John: It's all right. I've got it. Russell, John Black. Yeah, I know. I'll meet you there. Mm-hmm.
Marlena: I'm sorry. I wish I'd never spoken to him.
John: It's okay. I'll take care of things now. I won't be long.
Marlena: John. I'll come with you.
John: No. I want you to stay here in case Belle calls or comes home. Hey... What are you doing? What's going on with you?
Marlena: I don't know. I'm just so emotional lately. I'm not sure what's going on. Just go get Belle.
Marlena: John, please, take care of them. Don't let anything happen, not to any of them.
Brandon: Samantha must do what for you?
Tony: Oh, that's between Sami and me, isn't it? You'll think about it?
Sami: Yeah, yeah, i will. Well, I'm going to head home. I've had enough of this place for one night.
Brandon: Hold on a minute. First, you're going to tell me what happened in there.
Brandon: Because if he threatened you, I swear...
Sami: Brandon, it's okay, okay? I don't want to talk about Tony.
Brandon: Okay. Then we need to talk about us.
[Cellular phone rings]
Brandon: You know, you're really not supposed to...
Sami: I know, have a cell phone here, but I -- oh, my god, it's him! Hello? He's back. The love of my life is back!
Lexie: Thank you. Um... Personal question.
Tony: Oh, dear, shall I brace myself?
Lexie: When Kristen was unfaithful to you and she had an affair with John Black, I know it was unforgivable, but did it change the way you felt about her? Did you still love her?
Tony: This must mean that you've been unfaithful to Abe. You slept with Brandon, is that it? Oh, Alexandra.
Lexie: Okay, just tell me how you handled it -- Kristen's affair.
Tony: Well, i was very angry. I still loved her, the way Abe loves you.
Lexie: I turned my back on him, Tony, for all the wrong reasons.
Tony: So you made a mistake. Listen, we can fix those things. It's just a matter of time.
Lexie: How? I mean, I don't even know where to begin.
Tony: Why don't you move back into the mansion? Come back home, Alexandra.
Lexie: Why? I mean, how on earth would that help me with Abe?
Tony: You know, if you're going to reconcile with Abe, it should be with a true understanding of who you are. You're a DiMera. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Lexie: You're right, Tony. You are absolutely right. Thank you.
Tony: Ha ha ha ha. It's the new house of DiMera, and together, we'll show the world. Ha ha ha ha!
John: Sorry, doc. But I'll do whatever it takes to protect my family.
Shawn-D: Okay, so, uh, now, take care of yourself, all right?
Belle: I'm really going to miss you guys. You know, you're going to be happier at home where you belong.
Marlena: Belle, Shawn, you must never tell anybody about this key. Do you understand?
Belle: Okay. You guys better get going. They're waiting.
Marlena: No. No!
