Days of Our Lives Transcript Tuesday 12/25/02--Canada; 12/26/02--USA
John: This has got to be the quietest christmas we've ever had.
Marlena: I know. What with brady with chloe all day and Belle with shawn most of it -- oh, my gosh, they're all grown up.
John: Oh, never all grown up. I was kind of hoping that sami and will would show up this year.
Marlena: I know. So was I.
John: I want her to feel comfortable around here, you know? After all, she was my daughter. I raised her, I loved her as if she were my own, and back then, I thought she was. But once that blood tie was gone, I understand that biology isn't everything, but it does matter. Now, what if... we find out my father was responsible for taking you and roman away from carrie, eric, and sami all those years ago? What if we find out I was a part of that plan?
Marlena: Hey. Don't talk to me about a dimera plot or plan, okay? When I saw -- when I first saw you... mmm. That was love at first sight. Dimera had nothing to do with it. Nothing did. Come here.
Marlena: Not so bad having a quiet little christmas, huh?
John: Not so bad.
Jack: One more present stuck way in the back there.
Jennifer: What is that?
Jack: It's, uh, from me to you.
Jennifer: This is really funny.
Jack: No. No, it is not funny. I swear, it's not funny. It's not going to squirt you with water or anything.
Jennifer: No, I mean, it's funny. It's really funny, because coincidentally, I got a christmas present for you, too.
Colin: Why did I ever let jennifer get away? I'm not going to make that mistake again. I'm going to have her, and this time, I'm not going to let her go.
Hope: Is that the last of the gifts?
Bo: Uh-huh. Did tiny man conk out already?
Hope: Tiny man fell asleep in his mama's arms.
Bo: Is shawn upstairs?
Hope: Oh, no. He left a note saying that he and Belle went for A...drive.
Bo: A drive? Well, we won't be seeing them for a while.
Hope: You got that right. Bo, you should've seen zack. Oh, he was so sweet. In his sleep, he reached out with his little hand and he grabbed dookie bear's ear and just pulled it in to him. It was so sweet.
Bo: Who would've thought when I gave dookie bear to you -- whenever that was that the best thing would be to see our son love him as much as you?
He:E: Our sweet little boy.
Bo: Yeah, born on our anniversary, and we just had another anniversary. I think we should have an anniversary every day.
Hope: Yeah, I think so, too, brady.
Bo: I didn't give you your best present.
Hope: My best -- what are you talking about? You gave me my present.
Bo: No, I didn't give you the biggest present, which is...
Hope: Biggest present?
Bo: It's very simple.
Bo: It's me.
Bo: Mm-hmm. Me. I am going to continue to love you with my entire being -- mind, soul, body. Because that's what you deserve and nothing less. And that's what I'm going to give you for the rest of my life. Got something else... right here.
["Tonight I celebrate my love for you" playing]
Bo: Happy anniversary, fancy face.
Larry: [Whistling] Ha ha ha! Wait, wait. A toast to our illustrious hosts the horton family. I would like to thank them for their lovely vacation home. I've had a marvelous christmas. Of course, I haven't gotten any presents from them -- not yet. But I will. Bo's death... now, there's a gift worth waiting for. Cheers!
[Music box playing "tonight I celebrate my love for you"]
Hope: It's from the woodens. Bo, remember, we saw this in that small little shop in jackson square?
Bo: Yeah, hoping it might remind us of happier times. Well, open it up. Listen to the music.
["Tonight I celebrate my love for you" playing]
Hope: Bo, it's the song from my 18th birthday and the first time you ever told me you loved me.
Bo: You know, I've told you "I love you" probably 10,000 times since then.
Hope: A million.
Bo: Yeah. Could be. And I've meant it every time. Tonight we're celebrating a lifetime.
Jennifer: Okay, you go first.
Jack: No. No, no, you -- you, you. I mean, you know, it's a very little gift, and it's kind of, well, you know, well, I'm not going to say it's useless, but it's, uh, um...
Jennifer: Jack, I, uh, you know what? I'm not even going to say anything. You -- you open yours.
Jennifer: Here, I'll help you.
Jack: Well, I suppose we -- we shared the same thought process. You know, um, when we were first married and you -- you came complete with youowown collection of fine porcelain doodads amassed since childhood, I-I got to admit, I didn't understand the passion for knickknacks -- which came from your grandmother, yes?
Jack: But the fact is that everything that's a part of you, everything that you loved or cared about has become a part of me... like you. And, uh, I know now that when we were in africa and your box of fine collectibles arrived months late, lovingly packed and smashed to bits, I know now... I guess I'm saying that, you know, you... you can't -- you can't start at the beginning, but, uh... you know, um, maybe you can begin somewhere and, uh, take it from there.
Jennifer: Aah! Aah!
Jack: Don't shoot!
Jack: Don't shoot! Don't shoot! Don't shoot! It's only me -- santa!
Jack: Jack! Right.
Jennifer: What do you think you're doing? That is unbelievable. You came down the chim--
Jack: I'm santa.
Jennifer: What are you doing, jack?
Jack: Not ja-- deveraux -- mr. Deveraux is the one who sent me here to give you a christmas greeting and even more, a special gift.
Jennifer: Jack, I already gave you a gift. I don't have anything else --
Jack: A gift? Wait -- my -- my reindeer -- hey, what are you talking about? No, no, no! I'm checking my list and checking it twice to see if you've been naughty or... well, uh, speaking of checking -- oh, mr. Deveraux wanted me to check to see if you -- if you had an answer to his, uh, his little question. Uh, yes, yes, so, uh, I'm asking for him, uh, oh, um... would you marry him? I am dying to kiss you right now.
Jennifer: Uh, maybe, uh, maybe we should put abby to bed first and...
Jack: Yeah. Yes, mrs. Claus. I think that that would be a fine, fine idea.
John: Thank you. Thank you for -- for supporting me while we wait for these dna results... just for giving me time to come to grips with... whatever's going to happen next.
Marlena: I know this isn't the kind of second chance you had in mind. How many times have things seemed unbearably bleak for us, and we've been just fine? How many years ago was it that we were in aremid and we thought that was our last christmas?
John: Oh, doc, I can't tell you how grateful I am to have you as my best friend.
Marlena: I will always be here for you. John. You still know that, don't you?
John: Oh, yeah.
John: Now here I am. I've got my beautiful wife in my arms... it's christmas. How much luckier can one man get?
Marlena: Well... a little. Come here. Come here.
John: What are you -- what are you doing?
Marlena: Sit yourself down.
Marlena: Sit your cute little self down. I've got a little, uh, christmas cheer.
John: Where are you going?
Marlena: I'm getting some christmas cheer, and it's nonot what you think it is. Writyouse ais chk tce be hear bells.Board! Com tthe wo it.
Marlena: All righty.
John: Whoa! All right! Dessert, huh?
Marlena: Always makes me happy, and physiologically, it is clinically proven that chocolate releases endorphins which...
John: Makes me happy.
Marlena: Yes, yes.
Marlena: You know, while I was in the kitchen, I was remembering what you said at aremid.
John: Now I've come to believe that there's some kind of a grand scheme for everything, and it's all good.
Marlena: So, it's christmas. Surely you can believe that.
John: Don't call me shirley.
Marlena: Ha ha ha ha.
J john: I'm trying.
Marlena: With or without stefano, we have created a life...
Marlena: Created a family...
Marlena: Created lots of memories together...
Marlena: And a future that we really believe in.
John: Yes. And dessert. Feed me, baby. You wouldn'T. Oh...you brat. You are a brat. And I know how to deal with clowns like you.
Marlena: Oh, no. You wouldn't dare.
Hope: Oh, brady, I don't want to let go.
Bo: Well, you don't have to... ever. You just take my breath away. After everything you've been through, to not be bitter or angry or scared to live your life.
Hope: I've been scared. I've been angry. So have you, brady. But stefano's dead, right?
Hope: And larry... is dead, too.
Hope: So there's absolutely nothing we have to --
Bo: What? What is it?
Hope: He's out there. Bo.
Bo: Hold on.
John: I think I missed a spot.
Marlena: I don't even know you.
John: You are a picture.
Man: Hey, mom and dad, why don't you get in the picture, too?
John: Well, sure.
Marlena: Sure. All right. Okay, I'll stand by Belle.
Marlena: Now that... that is a family.
Marlena: The way it was meant to be. I have no doubt about that.
John: Well, this is the call. It's the private line. Merry christmas, shane. Right, thanks. So do you have the dna results? All right, let me have it.
Jack: If she knew that our own wolf in sheep's clothing is at the door and that you're ready to do battle with --
Jennifer: Jack, I know, I know. When I look into abby's eyes, I think to myself, how can I do this? How can I put myself in this situation with colin and the dimeras? But then I think, you know what, it is more dangerous not to do it... for me, for you, and for abby.
Colin: My dreams are about to come true.
[Knock on door]
Bo: Hope, why are you locking the door?
Hope: Did you see him? Did you find him?
Bo: No. There's no one.
Hope: No one?
Bo: Who did you think you saw?
Hope: Uh, I don't know.
Bo: Wait a minute. You said it was "him."
Hope: Because I-I thought that maybe -- I-I thought it was your cousin colin. Well, I-I know that you're suspicious of him, and just the idea of him creeping around the house -- I just -- oh, I'm just being silly. I'm just overtired, bo. It was probably just one of the neighbors walking by looking at the -- the christmas lights.
Bo: You okay?
Hope: Yeah, why wouldn't I be?
Bo: You're shivering.
Hope: Well, because I just opened the door, and it's cold, and it's, you know, it's a little chilly in here.
Bo: You want me to get you something hot to drink?
Hope: Yeah. Yeah, that would be great. Thank you.
Bo: Okay. Be right back.
Larry: Now for dessert. Mmm. That's good.
Hope: Let me go, larry.
Larry: Afraid I can't do that, fancy face. Nice and tight? Yeah. And you know, this time, your knight in shining armor will be unequipped to ride to your rescue. There are no heroes in hades. Six feet under.
Hope: What are you saying? What are you saying? Bo is...
Hope: You killed him?
Larry: No. No, no, no. No, that pleasure went to cousin colin.
Larry: Yeah -- colin. But I pulled the strings that made him pull the trigger.
Hope: My God, no.
Larry: Uh-huh. See, hope, you're mine now. And this time... you'll stay mine.
Hope: What is wrong with me? What can't I get past this?
Bo: You warmer?
Hope: Mm, much.
Bo: Yep, I'll put a fire in the fireplace.
Hope: No, no, no, no, no, no. Brady, I want you to stay right here with me.
Bo: Okay. Hey... what ever happened to that present I gave you when we were first married?
Hope: Ha ha ha!
Bo: There you go. Well, take it out. Go ahead.
Hope: What's it for?
Bo: What's it for? It's a bearskin rug. It goes in front of a fireplace.
Hope: We don't have a fireplace.
Bo: Yeah, that's right. I forgot. We don'T.
Hope: What is this for, brady? What's up? We'll have to find that rug.
Jennifer: Jack, I am trying to make you understand this isn't just about colin anymore. This is about us. Now, you are the one who taught me the story is now, the story is today, and you look at what's happening, and you forget all of your preconceived notions, and you start from a blank slate.
Jack: I also taught you to never get personally involved.
Jennifer: Yeah, well, I didn'tisisten very well, did I?
Jennifer: A hope chest?
Jack: Uh... a historical hope chest. A historical account. Come look inside.
Jennifer: Okay. "Now that this is finally empty, we can fill it up again with new memories and hopes for a wonderful future." And -- and so I'm just telling you that it feels really awful to feel so empty for so long... and as long as I live, there is no one else who could fill that space in my heart, jack. And I don't want to fill it with bitterness, and I don't want to fill it with anger. You know, it was christmas when -- when I accepted your proposal, and I accepted it because I knew that it was meant to be. And how many times did we think we were never going to make it to the altar, jack? But in the end, we did. We did because it was meant to be. So I'm telling you, I don't want to turn my back on destiny. I don't want to turn my bacon you.
John: Yeah, shane. Yeah. Mm-hmm, yeah. All right. Thanks.
Marlena: Are you all right?
John: I'm not stefano's son.
Marlena: Oh. Oh. Mm. Oh.
Marlena: Hey, all right. Tell me everything. Tell me, what did -- what did shane say?
John: The I.S.A. -- They dug really deep. They -- they found out that daphne dimera and philomina alamain were sisters. Once they knew where to look, they came up with records that indicated that daphne dimera had secretly given birth to a son, and she gave him to her married sister to raise.
Marlena: Forrest alamain.
John: That's why lawrence and I share a common dna -- cousins, not brothers, but since the adoption was legal, I have legitimately inherited the alamain fortune.
Marlena: So that means that you and tony really share a mother.
John: Apparently, daphne dimera cheated on stefano with another man. I mean, that would give him reason to hate me, wouldn't it, and want to control me?
John: My death was staged as a little boy. All the alamains thought I drowned in that pool, and that must have been when dimera got his hands on me. That was the first stage in making me his pawn. So... if stefano is not my biological father, who the hell is?
Jennifer: Jack... I've wanted to do that for so long.
Jack: You mean that?
Jennifer: Yeah, I mean that.
Jack: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Jack: I'm not dreaming this, am I?
Jennifer: No. No, you're not dreaming this.
Jack: Because... this is what I've been dreaming of, and you're what I've been dreaming of night and day, day and night, and if I wake up tomorrow morning -- of course, you probably expect me to be on the couch over at vern's tomorrom-m--
Jennifer: Are you done talking?
Jack: Ah. Yes, I-I think -- I-I think that about covers it, yes.
Jennifer: Okay. Good.
Jennifer: Ha ha.
Abby: Daddy, why are you carrying mommy?
Hope: I was just... thinking about the day we got married. In good times, in bad, in sickness... and health.
Hope: I, hope, take you, bo, to be my husband. I promise to be true to you in good times and bad, and in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of our lives.
So you're a cavity fighter, huh? everybody sucks at golf. That's the bea some day I'm going to kick his butt.
Christina: Don't you care about winning?
Al: Sweetheart, it's not whether you win or lose in life, it's how you pass the blame. I learned that when I worked for the city. Pq@
Marlena: You know what they say -- the past is history, the future's a mystery. All we have is the present, and that's a gift.
John: And what a gift I got. I'm not talking about those dna results, either. I'm talking about my -- my family, especially you.
John: Mm. Mm.
Marlena: Hey. Don't you want to open your present?
John: Whoa. Welcome to santa's workshop.
Colin: If I have to kill bo to accomplish my own agenda, so be it. It's not as though there's any love lost.
Abby: Did you hurt yourself, mom?
Jack: M-m-mommy, uh, stubbed her toe, and I was just, uh, helping her.
Jennifer: He was helping me.
Jack: Up the stairs.
Jennifer: And it's -- and you know daddy's silly, so he thought it would be silly to carry me up the stairs with my stubbed toe.
Jack: What? No. I --
Abby: I don't know what you guys are talking about, but I came downstairs for a glass of water.
Jack: Right! Water. Good.
Jennifer: Okay, baby.
Jack: Well, I-I'll get the water, and I'll put you down on your stubbed toe, and you help abigail get back up to bed.
Abby: I didn't think you'd still be here, daddy.
Jennifer: Well, uh, abby, daddy and I -- we just have, um, we have some unfinished business that we need to take care of.
Bo: I love you, fancy face, and I will prove it to you all the days of our lives.
John: I couldn't stand it if I ever hurt you.
Marlena: You know, I felt you pull away when we found the letter from daphne. It's so nice to have you back.
John: I'm telling you, if things had gone the other way today --
Marlena: But they didn'T. They dn'T... and they're not going to. It's over now. Whatever happens down the road, there's only one way to face it. We're going to do it together. We're going to just love each other.
John: I like the way you think.
Colin: Good night, jennifer, and here's to a new year and a christmas gift to both of us. Jack will never break your heart again. He'll be out of your life forever.
Jennifer: Good night, sweetie.
Abby: Can you stay with me till I fall asleep?
Jack: Uh... s-s-sure. Sure, sure we can.
Jennifer: Yeah, baby. You know what? Mommy's really tired, too.
Jack: Do you have any idea how much I love you?
Abby: I love you, too, daddy.
Jennifer: Mm. I love you, too, jack.
Abby: Me too.
Jack: Merry christmas.
Larry: No more canned goods in the backwoods cabin for me.
[Exhales] Not once I've had my revenge.
I love christmas memories
of homemade cookies
the sweet scent
of freshly-cut pine
church bells chime
memories of christmas
memories of christmas
