Days of Our Lives Transcript Thursday 4/17/03--Canada; 4/18/03--USA
Marlena: You know exactly what it is. Let's not play this game.
John: Gimd, will you? I'm having a hard time processing the fact that my wife is carrying a bug-sweeping device in her purse.
Marlena: Don't make a big deal out of this.
John: Who gave it to you?
Marlena: Roman. Oman.
[ Cellular phone rings ]
Rolf: Rex, it's professor putnam. How have you been?
Rex: Good, good. I'm doing good.
Rolf: Excellent., I'm, uh, I'm back from my sabbatical now.
Rex: Oh, yeah?
Rolf: How's my star student doing wi
Rex: Uh, I'm doing some independent study work, and that's going well.
Rolf: I'd like to meet with you, rex, but, uh, I probably shouldn't come to the mansion. I don't want to bother count dimera.
Rex: Well, my father's not home. Come over now.
Rolf: All right. I'll be there soon.
Rex: Looking good.
Shawn-d: What do you want to do?
Belle: Oh...hold your hand.
Shawn-d: Well, that's easy. Want some pizza?
Belle: Unh-unh. Ha ha ha ha! I kinda like this.
Shawn-d: You know what? Me too.
Belle: Let's never fight again, okay?
Shawn-d: It's a deal.
Belle: Have you noticed?
Belle: I'm not acting all depressed.
Shawn-d: Oh... yeah. Right. Because I'm so sorry that I have been negative lately.
Belle: You haven't been.
Shawn-d: Hey, don't argue withe.E.
Shawn-d: But this is good, 'cause I am so lucky to have you.
Belle: Yeah, you are.
Shawn-d: I don't know what it is that makes two people go together so well, but whatever it is, you and I have got that.
Belle: I am definitely not arguing with you.
Kate: God, I can't believe I let you drag me over here like this.
Roman: Oh, kate, I didn't exactly drag you over here.
Kate: Oh, really? Well, I was having a wonderful evening at tuscany, one of my favorite restaurants, even though they don't serve bean dip and chili.
Roman: What, is that supposed to be some kind of insult?
Kate: No. What it is, is a comment. It's a comment, saying that a gentleman invited me out for an elegant dinner.
Roman: Oh, you know, you don't have to flip your hair like a damn diva. Tony dimera is no gentleman! He's a criminal. So what the hell were you doing out with him tonight? Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. We are off tomorrow for good friday..ical peel,
Kate: You are jealous of tony dimera.
Roman: Oh, the hell I am! No, I am worried about you hanging out with that dangerous lowlife.
Kate: I was tangoing with another man, and you can't stand it.
Roman: There was a whole lot more than tango dancing going on out there.
Kate: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Roman: Well, let me put it this way -- I have heard that in some states you could be arrested for dancing that way.
Kate: Are you calling me cheap, roman?
Roman: Don't go putting words in my mouth.
Kate: Oh, god! You know something? You are more right than you think you are, because I was having a great time with tony. He is a very attractive man.
Roman: Yeah, if you're turned on by snakes. Nah, you're just using tony to get back at me, that's all.
Kate: Get back at you... for what?
Belle: You want to play connect four?
Shawn-d: Do you?
Belle: Well, I do if you do.
Shawn-d: Well, I do if you do.
Belle: Hey, how about you just kiss me?
Woman: Are you playing with the game?
Shawn-d: Mnh-mnh. No, no, it's all yours.
Woman: So I guess y g guys are back together.
Woman: I told rick you wouldn't stay mad at each other.
Rick: Sandy's always right about things like that.
Belle: Oh, my god, your ring is gorgeous. Wait, are you guys engaged?
Rick: Not yet. It's a purity ring.
Belle: Purity ring.
Sandy: It means I decided not to have sex until I get married.
Belle: Really. And, um, you're okay with that?
Rick: Yeah, I think it's cool. Like, when we do get married, we'll be each other's one and only.
Belle: And what are you thinking right now?
Shawn-d: Hmm? Just, uh... well, I'm sick of everyone bringing that subject up around me.
Belle: It's interesting -- abstinence. I mean, not having sex until you're married. It almost doesn't even seem like an option anymore.
Shawn-d: Even if it is the 21st century.
Shawn-d: Oh, no, it's just something your dad brought up.
Belle: You were talking to my dad about sex?
John: Of course... roman. Had to run to your ex.
Marlena: Sad that I had to go to anybody else --
John: Didn't have to. We've been through this. I said I was sorry that I planted the bug on you, didn't I?
Marlena: Yes. You apologized. But I'm not sure when it's going to happen again. And I'm not coorortable being married to a man who tracks my moves with an electronic device.
John: I did it to protect you.
Marlena: You did it to control me.
John: Is that how you really feel?
Marlena: You put a bugging device in my bag without my knowing it? That says to me you don't trust me.
John: It's not you, it's tony!
Marlena: Oh, stop with tony! It isn't about tony. It isn'T. It's about you and me and our vows to each other.
John: Our marriage -- come on, come on, our marriage is rock-solid. And those vows I took mean ever more to me today than they did on the day we were married.
Marnana: You're saying all the right things. I don't think you're convinced. Because of the fact that now you know tony and i are rex and cassie's parents.
John: You know, doc, you just kind of throw that out therlilike it's no big deal.
Marlena: You know, we didn't want it. We didn't ask for it. It's what happened. We're making the best of it.
John: Yeah, but it sure as hell is changing our lives, isn't it?
Marlena: Yes. It has changed our lives. But no relationship worth its salt has no movement. Good marriages change and adjust because of challenges, sometimes in spite of challenges.
John: Are you saying that we don't have a good marriage?
Marlena: I want you to stop being insecure.
John: Oh, so now I'm insecure?
Marlena: Yes. You are.
John: You're not making any sense.
Marlena: It's not your fault, but you are afraid that I will do to you what I did to roman. You're afraid that I'll cheat on you. Would bring such a suspenseful the green jacket is going north of the border.
The perfect size.Dg
Shawn-d: It's not like your dad and I sat around talking about sex.
Belle: Please. God.
Shawn-d: I just went to the pub to have some breakfast, and your dad was there.
Belle: Did he interrogate you?
Shawn-d: No. Not really. He just wanted to know how things were between you and me, but he had the wrong idea because of something you told him over the phone.
Belle: Something I told him? Oh... yeah, I remember that.
Shawn-d: Oh, do you remember talking to him, telling him how we were thinking about...having sex?
Belle: No! No, it wasn't straight out like that.
Belle: Shawn, I talk to my parents. What's wrong with that?
Shawn-d: Nothing. I would just think that at some point in your life, you'd switch over to being a little more private about --
Belle: You mean sharing things instead of with them.
Shawn-d: I guess, yeah.
Belle: Shawn, they still think of me as their little girl. That's changing, but... okay, you know how long it took the glaciers to melt? It's kind of like that --
slow. What about your parents?
Shawn-d: What about them?
Belle: Well, I mean, do they ever ask you if we're having sex?
Shawn-d: My dad and I have talked about it, but he's more concerned with us just being safe. I mean, I think he assumes we're having sex.
Belle: Because you're a guy.
Shawn-d: Maybe. I don't know. My mom freaked out about it a long time ago, but she never actually asked.
Belle: See, why is it such a big deal for girls, but when it comes to guys, they're like, "hey, way to go, man."
Shawn-d: I don't think that.
Belle: You don't? Not at all, not even a little bit?
Shawn-d: No, but I love you. So that makes things a little different for me.
Belle: Different, how?
Shawn-d: Well, before we were going out, when I was a sophomore in high school, I didn't exactly make all the right judgment calls.
Shawn-d: But, you see, when I went on the road with the baseball team a couple weeks ago and the guys were partying and the girls were in there running around... in their underwear, I didn't want to have anything to do with them. I stayed away.
Belle: Really? In their underarar. Did they happen to have days of the week on them?
Shawn-d: Oh, you mean, like...no.
Belle: So you were looking.
Shawn-d: Well -- I was -- yes. I'm alive. Hello?
Belle: Were they pretty?
Shawn-d: Sure. Okay? But that doesn't matter. You want to know why? Because you are the only girl I want to be with.
[ Knock on door ]
Rex: Come in, professor.
Rolf: Thank you, rex.
Rex: Sure. Sit down. Would you like some tea or coffee? I can call down to the kitchen.
Rolf: Uh...no, no, I-I really can't stay. I just wanted to see how you're getting on with your studies.
Rex: You mean college? I'm almost through.
Rolf: Through? I don't understand.
Rex: Well, the department heads had a meeting and decided there's not much they can teach me. I'm too advanced.
Rolf: Well, I could've told them that. You have an extraordinary intelligence, rex. Well, so does your sister, but, uh, it manifests itself differently. Your talents are intellectual, and cassie's are interpersonal.
Rex: Maybe that's why she's been getting into so much trouble. She's too interpersonal.
Rolf: Oh, dear. What happened?
Rex: Uh, she got kicked out of the dorm for drinking. That's why I moved back here, to keep an eye on her.
Rolf: So, you're, uh, you're a good brother, as well as a genius. I had no idea your I.Q. Was this high. Although, I shouldn't be surprised. You and your sister aren't like most people.
Rex: Cassie wants to be. She likes to fit in, you know? She wants to be popular and famous -- things I don't care about at all.
Rolf: Well, you're destined for a different kind of greatness, rex. Your intellect, your, uh, your gift for science will lead you to do important things. You, uh, you working on a project now? Could I se
Marlena: I... I still feel guilty about that. I will always feel guilty about that. So much time has passed, and that hasn't changed what happened, and you are intimately aware that I... betrayed my husband with another man. And that's bound to make you insecure.
John: Well, I am sorry, dr. Evans, but I don't feel insecure. Besides, I wasn't just... any other ma w was I?
Marlena: No. My feelings for you were so intense, I... I tried to resist but --
John: Of course you did. You're an honorable woman, but you're also human.
Marlena: Isn't that what every cheating spouse says -- "I was human"? It doesn't excuse the betrayal, does it?
John: Doc, I-I can't stop you from blaming yourself, but I wish you wouldn'T. Look, our... our situation was different. It was... it was different.
Marlena: All right.
John: The thing is, I'm just -- I'm justotot happy that you brought roman into our thing with tony.
Marlena: Are you embarrassed because knows what you did?
John: No, I'm not embarrassed. It's just none of his damn business. I mean, roman loves it when you and I are fighting.
Marlena: That's not true.
John: Oh, come on, doc, any chance he gets to make me look bad in your eyes, he jumps on it.
Marlena: No, it's not so. He was very understanding about this.
John: I'm sure he was so sorry that your husband put a tracking device on you that he just filled up with sympathy, so you decided to get back at me by running to your ex for that sympathy.
Marlena: It wasn't about sympathy.
John: Come on, you ran to the guy because he's ilill in love with you.
Marlena: Why are you being so impossible about this? Roman is not in love with me. You've seen him with kate. They're crazy about each other.
John: Yeah, yeah, he and kate were hot and heavy at one time, but she's miserable now because roman can't commit. Three guesses why not...
Marlena: It's not because of me.
John: It's totally you. You basically ruined the guy for any other woman.
Kate: I thought you were so hot to talk, to get some answers. Why don't you give me one? Just exactly what is it you think I was trying to get you back for, huh?
Roman: Look, can we just pretend this never happened, all right? It's not like you meant it.
Roman: Kate, come on, you thought I was in danger. It's the only reason you said you loved me. Just in case something happened, then those would be the last words I heard on earth.
Kate: Oh, my god. Well, that is a very poetic thought, but it's absolute crap, okay? When I tell a man I love him, it's because it's the truth, and I don't know why you would think anything else.
Roman: Because you're kate roberts. You're a worldly, sophisticated woman. You're not some damn teenybopper with a crush! All right? So blurting out "I love you" on a police radio isn't exactly what you would do. It's not a kate thing to do.
Kate: Oh. I see. It was, um, impulsive, so you couldn't trust it, is that it?
Roman: There you go. You got it -- right there. So now can we forget about it?
Roman: Good. Great. So, would you like to sit down now, maybe have a cocktail?
Kate: But I'm not talking on the police radio right now, am I?
Roman: No, you're not.
Kate: We're in your home, the privacy of your home, so anything I say here you would have to take in good faith, right? Roman brady, I love you. What do you y y to that? Ean Another chilly weather day.
Are you right ñ Ñ q Ñ w q q t x I q
Marlena: I've ruined roman?
Marlena: You believe that?
John: I didn't mean it the way it sound-- doc, come on, you've got to admit, it has taken roman years to get over you, and I'm not convinced that he has even yet.
Marlena: You're implying that I want to have some control over roman's heart. We stay close because of the children -- of sami and eric.
John: Right. Because you share children.
Marlena: Yes, that's right.
John: Just like you do with tony.
Marlena: No. No, no, tony and I haven't raised the twins together.
John: Yeah, but you're making up for lost time now, aren't you?
Marlena: We're trying to do the right thing.
John: A dimera trying to do the right thing... stefano dimera is responsible for all the hell you and roman and i lived through, remember?
Marlena: Tony isn't stefano.
John: That's right. Stefano's dead, but tony's not. He's alive a w well, living in salem, free to ruin the rest of our lives.
Marlena: You can't paint them with the same brush. That's not fair. Tony never chose to be a dimera.
John: Boy, he is good. He's actually got you believing he's a victim.
Marlena: You know what? Sometimes, he is. Like when you choose to hate him, not because of what he's done to you or done to us, but because he's a dimera.
John: That's right, doc. Give the guy a pass. He's just an innocent man, trying to live a quiet, respectable life in the fine city of salem, right?
Marlena: Is that so hard to believe?
John: Yes, damn it, it is!
Marlena: Your anger is unjustified, and you know what? In my opinion, tony's got far more reason to hate you.
Rex: Why are you so curious about my work?
R rolf: Well, I'm, uh, I'm a scientist, as well as a professor, rex. My curiosity's only natural. After all, you're one of the finest -- well, if not the finest -- students I've ever had.
Rex: So that's it? You're interested because I'm your student.
Rolf: Look, uh, rex, I know that you've moved far beyond me in your capacity for learning. I'm just curious about your development. I believe you're going to do great things in the field of science.
Rex: And what about your other gifted students? Do you visit them at home and ask to see their projects?
Rolf: Well, I-I have, on occasion. I mean, not as often as I should, but, uh, then I've taken a special interest in you.
Rolf: That's complicated.
Rex: You know, people use that expression when they're trying to hide the truth.
Rolf: It's very astute of you.
Rex: So you are hiding something. What is it? Does it have to do with my father? You're not really a professor at salem university, are you? There's some other connection.
Rex: Yeah, with me, with my sister. I've felt it for a long time. Who are you, really?
Rolf: I'm the doctor who delivered you and cassie.
Shawn-d: So you're not upset anymore?
Belle: About the girls? No. Not thrilled...
Shawn-d: I-I wasn't, either.
Belle: So how many?
Shawn-d: How many what?
Shawn-d: Well, I lost count after the first 10... I don't know. I just wanted to go to sleep.
Belle: I like this whole not being jealous thing. It feels good.
Shawn-d: There's nothing to be jealous of.
Belle: That's why I like it. I feel comfortable and calm. Is that how you feel right now?
Shawn-d: Calm? No, no, not really. Not when you're doing this.
[ Sighs ] A declaration of love, and the man has nothing to say?
Roman: Kate, I have very, very strong feelings for you. I'm just not real good at the talking thing. But if you come over here, I will show you exactly how I feel.
Roman: Do you know how hard that was tonight, seeing you with tony like that, watching him dance with you like that? I never knew I could be that jealous. Look, I want to be the only man who touches you like that, and I want to be the only man who kisses you like this.
Kate: If you want me so badly, why can't you say the words that I want to hear?
Roman: 'Cause I got my own way of saying things.
Rex: Wait a minute. What did I miss here, professor? How could you be the doctor that delivered me and cassie?
Rolf: I performed ma t tasks for stefano dimera over the years, rex, but none that's as dear to my heart as bringing you and your sister into being.
Rex: Into being? Isn't that a little over the top, even for a doctor?
Rolf: Well, it, uh, it applies in this case. You know, rex, everyone hates me for what I did. But I look at you, at how brilliant you are, and I say, how could it have been wrong?
Rex: How could what have been wrong? What are you talking about, professor? It sounds to me like you were a lot more involved than an ordinary obstetrician.
Rolf: I think I've said too much.
Rex: I think you better finish what you started, or you'll have to answer to my father.
Rolf: I merely did what your grandfather wanted me to do. Sperm was collected, eggs were fertilized, and voil! Perfect twins. A boy and a girl such as the world had never known before.
Rex: So we were an experiment?
Rolf: Well, only technically speaking. Stefano dreamed of human perfection. I made that dream come true.
R: : By playing god?
Rolf: No, no, no, not me, rex. That was stefano's role. I was merely the facilitator. And along the way, I came to care for those two remarkable babies. Makes me very happy to see how beautiful you've turned out.
Rex: So the experiment was a success?
Rolf: Oh, my, yes, by anyone's measure. I, uh, I only hope you don't feel exploited, rex. I had your best interests at heart.
Kate: I'm not -- I'm not sure about this.
Roman: I am.
Kate: I don't know, it's just I don't feel that things are right between us.
Roman: Everything is right about us, kate.
Kate: We need to talk.
Roman: Not now.
Kate: Then when?
Roman: Not now.
Belle: I want it to stay like this forever.
Belle: No, shawn, I'm serious. Hodo we make sure that we stay happy, and that we don't fall into a pattern of fighting about the same things over and over again?
>>Hahawn-d: I don't know.
Belle: Well, I'm pretty sure it's me more than you, so I'm gonna make sure that I stay a little more relaxed about everything.
Shawn-d: I'm not so sure about that.
Rolf: Rex, I can't take credit for conceiving the idea to create you and cassie. The glory goes to stefano for that. I just did as he asked. And that was always the way with us. I was the servant, he was the master.
Rex: Yeah, the word "servant" doesn't really apply to you, professor. After all, you creeded human life. I don't think eliana's done that lately.
Rolf: No, no, probably not. So, uh, you're not angry with me, you're not sentful?
Rex: No. You were just carrying out my grandfather's wishes. I mean, after everything I've read or heard about him, stefano dimera wasn't the kind of man people said no to.
Rolf: That's very true, rex. Look, I'm just relieved that you understand.
Rex: Oh, I do. I completely understand. But what I don't get is why grandfather wanted you to. Why was it so important to bring cassie and me into being?
Rolf: Oh. Believe me, rex, trying to understand the workings of stefano's mind was an exercise in futility. But look, let's talk about you, about that extraordinary superior intelligence. Have you made any progress yet? Have you come up wi a anything groundbreaking? Do you need my help? I would be honored to work with you, rex.
Rex: Well, I don't need any help right now, but I will remember your offer.
Rolf: Can't you even share with me what your project is?
Rex: Later. When I've had my first success, I'll let you know.
Rolf: Well, I'll look forward to it.
Rex: Uh, professor...
Rex: There's something I've been looking forward to for a while now.
Rolf: Oh, really? What's that, rex?
Rex: I'm dying to see what your real hair looks like.
Rolf: My -- my real hair?
Rex: Come on, take off the wig, professor.
Rolf: I-I don't know what you're talking about. Rex --
Rex: Bald. That's what I figured. You know, you look a lot better without the rug. Now, if you'd just drop the accent... it's really cheesy, professor. What do you really sound like?
Rolf: [ Regular voice ] Well, well, well. You are certainly one smart cookie.
Rex: German. Of course. It's nice to finally meet the real professor putnam.
Rolf: I can see there is no fooling you, rex.
Rex: That's right.
Rolf: Huh. Before I go, let me give you the number of the motel where I am staying just outside town. 'S's the roadside motel. I'm listed under my mother's maiden name -- blitz.
Rex: Got it.
Rolf: Well, I will be in contact soon.
Rolf: Ah, rex. Rex, I am so proud of you. I am as proud as if I were your own father.
Rex: You think you're proud of me now, just wait until my project is completed. Then I'll be the one making history.
Kate: [ Laughs ]
Roman: Oh, god.
[ Both moaning ]
Roman: Come on...
Kate: [ Giggles ]
Roman: Ah... kate... kate, I don't want to hurt you.
Kate: Oh... the only way you can hurt me is if you stop.
Kate: [ Chuckles ] Mmm... I never knew the shoulder could be such an erogenous zone.
Kate: Well, there's no problems in the bedroom, that's for sure. That's rare, you know. I mean, for me. I don't think I have ever been so deeply, utterly satisfied. I think I make you happy, too.
Roman: [ Kisses shoulder ]
Kate: That's what worries me a little bit. I mean, I know I'm good with my body, but... you don't know the reason why, do you? Don't -- don't say anything, okay? I just want to -- I want to talk while I have the courage. It's about -- it's about my secret past that you're always so curious -- curious about. Roman... I guess I've been ashamed to say anything. And I don't know why I'm going to say anything now, but I... I just want you to... to really know me, because if you're going to... if you're going to love me, then you need to know all of who I really am.
Kate: When I was, um... much younger, and, um, very desperate to survive... I took -- I took money in exchange for sex. I sold my services to men. And that's what, um, worries me now. Because when you were first in pursuit of me I was so afraid that you just wanted me -- wanted me to go to bed with you. I mean, not that I don't mind jumping into bed with you. It's great, but... I wanted you to want me for me.
Kate: And now who knows? After hearing all this, you might not want me at all, right? Roman... do you still -- do you still feel -- roman? Roman?
Belle: Wow. You think I can't change.
Shawn-d: I don't mean that in a bad way. I just know that you're the type of person who worries... a lot.
Belle: So? I can go crazy sometimes, too.
Shawn-d: Oh, you? Cra-- oh, yeah. Crazy?
Belle: Yeah, you know, me and meems, girls' night out. You know how it is. Oh, whatever, shawn. I am not sensible all the time. I can go wild. Fine, I'll show you.
Shawn-d: No --
Belle: Oh, my god! Oh, my god! I am -- I'm so sorry. Seriously, I'm sorry. Wait. Wait! Guys! Shawn, is this wild enough for you?
Shawn-d: Yeah. Yeah, bring it on.
Saddam struck fear into their hearts. Yet it was coalition troops that took their loved ones away. The thousands of iraqis still awaiting freedom. On tonight's "global national" with kevin newman.
Shawn-d: Hey! Oh, my god!
Belle: That's gross!
Shawn-d: You started it.
Belle: It was an accident! I didn't mean to. Shawn, this is a new dress. What if I get a stain on it? Or -- it's okay. It's just a dress. I'll just change my style and start wearing jeans with holes in them.
Shawn-d: You know what? I don't want you to change a thing.
Belle: Oh, shawn, but you deserve a girl who can go crazy every -- whoa!
Shawn-d: Whoa! There goes the dress!
Belle: That's okay. I'll just take it off.
Shawn-d: Oh, no, no. No, you don'T.
Shawn-d: Yeah, you did.
Belle: Come on, shawn, I never go that crazy. Oh, let's get them!
Shawn-d: What? No, come here. Come here.
John: I can't believe tony's doing this to us.
Marlena: He's not. You are.
John: No, he's doing something, all right. You're being manipulated. You've got a soft spot in your heart for those kids --
Marlena: Gosh golly, I do.
John: Of course you do. You're a wonderful mother. And I'm not saying that you shouldn't go out of your way for them. I'm just saying that tony's playing you, damn it. There's no doubt in my mind about that.
Marlena: You don't have any proof of that.
John: Well, I know of divorced couples who have raised their children without so much as even speaking to one another. That's why I don't understand why you and tony have to be so all-fired close.
Marlena: We are not so close.
John: I saw the way you were looking at him tonight.
John: At tuscan when he was dancing with kate, you couldn't keep your eyes off him.
Marlena: Do you think that I'm jealous?
John: Were you?
Marlena: Uh... I have no interest in dancing with tony.
[ Soft music playing ]
Marlena: You're my partner. In all things. Dance with me. Come on, force yourself.
Marlena: Come on.
John: [ Sighs ]
Rex: Get ready, salem. My presence is about to be felt in a big way.
Lexie: It only happened once.
Hope: Lex --
Lexie: I cannot let brandon threaten my marriage.
Abe: Vin ramsell's out on bail.
Bo: I'll take the bastard down myself.
Jennifer: So we're gonna strip you down. Yeah, to the basics, and we're gonna start all over with you, jack deveraux.
Jack: Before I'm through, I'm gonna make that hunk you're dating look like quasimodo.
Who is it?
