Days of Our Lives Transcript Wednesday 4/23/03--Canada; 4/24/03--USA
Woman: Well, what do you think?
Kate: The view certainly compensates for a bad first impression.
Woman: And bear in mind, we're on 4/10ths of a mile away from the L.A.N. Hub.
Kate: This is the chief reason that basic black is interested in the property.
Woman: Considering the price, this would be an unbeatable investment in your compa future.
Kate: I'm beginning to be persuaded.
Ranan: Don't be. It's a really bad idea.
Nicole: You know when the ground started shaking a minute ago, I actually prayed at a big crater would open up d d swallow me. At least then I'd finallybe free.
Victor: Well, I would imagine you'd pray that it would swallow me. Keep your fingers crossed. You might get another chance later on.
Nicole: Why, do you think whatever that was will happen again?
Victor: Well, we've been known to make the earth move, haven't we, nicole?
Nicole: How could you be so -- doesn't anything ever get to you?
Victor: Of course. You did... when I first fell in love with you.
Abe: Come on, earthquake? This is the midwest, man. Come on now. Yeah, well... well, it could be, uh, military maneuvers or a construction accident or...fireworks, firearms. It... yeahyeyeah, well... you do that, huh? Lex. You shouldn't be here.
Tony: It's over. It's over now. You've never experienced a tremor before. Well, don't you worry. You're safe. You all right?
Cassie: I'm fine. I'm fine. It's rex who's been kidnapped. What if he's hurt, what do they want from him? Who would do this?
Tony: The first thing you've got to do is to calm down.
Cassie: We have to save my brother. We have to go and find him.
Tony: No, no, no. We're not going anywhere. Just relax.
John: Oh...guess everybody in the building must be calling downstairs.
Marlena: Are you still on hold?
John: Mm-hmm. Yeah. Maybe I'll try the cop shop.
Marlena: What do you want to bet they're doing construction in the basement, and they haven't told us again?
John: Well, if that's the case, you shouldn't have tossed that salad. Ha ha ha ha.
Marlena: I'm going to try the security phone in the kitchen, see if I can't get through.
John: That's a good idea.
[ Telephone rings ]
John: John black.
Man: You don't know me, mr. Black, but I know you. You have a relative named rex.
John: That's a fact. Who are you, and what do you ntnt?
Man: It isn't every day you can snag someone off the street with a millionaire father and stepfather.
John: I'm going to ask you once again. What do you want?
Man: What do you think? Cold hard cash... or you'll never see rex again. Like sands through thhohourglass, so are the days of our lives. would bring such a suspenseful the green jacket is going north of the border.
The perfect size. W?
Nicole: My whole life is devoted to serving you. Blood sport -- you're the cat, I'm the mouse. You toy with me, you batter me around, but you never quite get around to putting me out of my misery. I cheated on you. I killed a man. But I'm still a better person than you are. I can't believe I ever thought that...
Victor: I was sincerely in love with you? But I was, nicole. I was... once.
Cassie: You're not going to go find rex?
Tony: Of course I am. But we have to wait. The man says he's going to call back with instructions, where we're going to leave ththe ransom.
Cassie: Well, we can't just stand here. We have to call the police!
Tony: No, absolutely not! You've got to trust me here!
Cassie: I do trust you! I...you and rex are the only people I've ever... and marlena... we have to let her know what happened.
Tony: No, no, no, we can't let marlena know because she will worry... until we get more information. Oh, I'm sorry... I don't want you to worry. I promise you we'll bring your brother back safely.
John: You gotta be kidding me.
Man: Yeah, I'll be laughing all the way to the bank. You do what I say, or your wife's son won't live to see another day.
John: And I'm supposed to take your word for that?
Rex: Oh, man!
John: Hey, hey, relax, pal.
Man: I did what you asked. Are you satisfied?
John: Yeah. Satisfied.
Marlena: Who's on the phone?
Man: I want a bill in cash, unmarked. You drop it in the trash can in the weight room at the titan gym, and don't get it dirty. No cops, no tricks, or the wonder twin here is dead.
Rex: You do realize your chance for a clean getaway with funding is less than 1%. You're not even a professional. Your only hope is to let me go now.
Man: You sound like a bad tv show.
Rex: Pardon me. I've never been kidnapped before.
Man: Well, you should know enough to understand you ain't going nowhere.
Rex: Look, you know the tremors that we felt a little while ago?
Man: Oh, you going to tell me it's armageddon?
Rex: Maybe. Listen, if you don't let me go now, something terrible is going to happen, and I'm the only person that can prevent it.
Man: What, you made the earth move? A little...telekinesis? Well, if you can do that, you should be able to get yourself out of that chair, right?
Rex: Oh, I'll get out of here, and you'll be the one that's going twiwind up in chains.
Man: I thought the world was going to end. Been a pleasure doing business with you.
Rex: Where are you going?
Man: I can't miss my daily workout. I mean, where do you think I get the biceps to beat down genetically engineered you?
Rex: I thought it was called a gun.
Man: I have a little extra incentive for this workout to the tune of mimillion buckaroos.
Man: Here you go. You might get hungry.
Rex: You're going to leave me here?
Man: Well, I will have to supervise the drop-off. In fact, you're the genius. See what you think of this plan. After hours, I get the money, stash it in my gym bag, maybe grab another workout in the morning.
Rex: Are you sure you want to share your brilliant plan with your genius kidnappee?
Man: Fine. You just imagine the worst fate yoyou can think of. That's your future, freak.
John: Just sit down for a second.
Marlena: What? What's the matter?
John: It's okay. I don't wantouou to worry. I'm going to handle the situation.
Mlena: What situation?
John: The phone call was about rex. He's just been kidnapped.
David: On the next "100 huntley street", lorna du's back with us. Also vladimir from the ukraine. And then rick warren.
Rick warren: God wants you to be in regular, close fellowship with other believers so you can develop the skill of loving. Love cannot be learned in isolation. You have to be around people. Irritating, imperfect,
Kate: So, did the elevator take you for a ride, too?
Kate: Never mind. I don't recall asking you for an opinion, roman. I mean, are you suddenly a real estate expert?
Roman: Kate, I'm just trying to do you a favor, that's all. This building is in terrible shape. You're going to have to redo it from the foundation up.
Kate: And because we're women, we don't realize that? You know, our criteria is location and affordability, but I don't know even why I'm explaining this to you.
Roman: You know what, kate? Let me point this out to you. You always get this defensive tone when you have doubts.
Kate: Not about this. I'm almost completely sold. I think I just have a couple of more questions.
Roman: Don't tell me you're going to commit to this on the spot just to prove me wrong.
Kate: Now, what the hell would you know about commitment, roman?
Roman: Would you give us a minute alone, please?
Woman: Certainly. Actually, I'm afraid I have another appointment. Take your time, kate. Look around, call me. I know you'll make the right decision.
Kate: Thank you.
Kate: What are you doing here?
Roman: I've been looking for you all over town.
Roman: Because you left my bed.
Kate: You noticed.
Roman: Yes, ma'am, I did notice. Why?
Lexie: And why shouldn't i be here?
Abe: You feel that tremor a few minutes ago?
Lexie: Yeah, there was an 18-wheeler pulling out in front of the station.
Abe: Well, this is no truck going by. We're getting calls from all over the city.
Lexie: Maybe it was an earthquake. Well, wasn't one of the biggest quakes ever to hit this country in missouri?
Abe: Which is why I want you to go home and take it easy.
Lexie: Why, in case of aftershock? Honey, it's not like we were expecting a 6.2. What, you think I'm going to go into labor or something?
Abe: Sweetheart, I just don't want to take any chances.
Lexie: Abe, you're scaring me.
Abe: Honey, now, look -- I'm sorry, really. Honey, you know me.
Lexie: I know, I know, you were going into your father-protector mode. And I am in my restless mother-to-be mode. I was hoping we could have lunch.
Abe: Yeah, I was hoping so, too. It was quiet until a few minutes ago.
Lexie: Hmm. Well, it's amazing, you know? They put two people behind bars, and they take half the city's criminals out of commission. Look, I know ramsell made bail. Do you think carson will, too?
Abe: You know, carson is an officer of the court, an elected official who betrayed his oath for money. A price paid in lives. No judge, whether he's a friend or a crony, is going to risk public outrage by doing him any favors. But if he does get out, don't call me overprotective for putting a guard on you.
Lexie: Okay, abe, I know -- I know that I helped humiliate carson on live tv, but, come on, he's not going to come after me. I've known him since I was 13.
Abe: Don't trust that man.
Lexie: I don'T. Ah, I am so happy it's spring. I think I will take a walk and check out the cherry blossoms, and don't tell me that exercise is bad for us.
Abe: Ha ha ha ha.
Lexie: So, we'll just be waiting for you when you get home, okay, dad? Oh, I love you.
Abe: Oh, I love you. You be careful, okay?
Man: The switchboard's jammed up with calls. People think the world's coming to an end. Any more information we can give them?
Abe: Well, we're checking on the source of the tremors. You knowitit doesn't appear to be anything to worry about. People should just go about their business as usual.
Man: Okay, that's the party line, but what's really going on?
Abe: I wish to god I knew.
[ Telephone rings ]
Man: Have you been waiting with bated breath for the next clue? This is like a treasure hunt, only I get the treasure. You bring me a million dollars, cash, unmarked bills. Deposit it in the trash can in the weight room at the titan gym. No cops, no goons, no hanging around after the drop. You disobey orders, your son here is dead.
Tony: Yes, I hear you loud and clear. The titan gym -- I will bring the mon right away.
Cassie: The titan gym -- is that where he asked you to bring the money?
Cassie: Please -- please tell me that you're going to do exactly what the kidnapper said, and you'll pay to get rex back, and you won't pull any tricks.
Tony: I will take the money.
Cassie: I've never been so afraid for him before. He's like -- he's like a part of me. If anything happened to him...
Tony: No, no, you're not going to lose your brother... and I will not lose my son. didieed d frfromom linineses hahaveve b beeeen n hihis s rrepeporort.T.
Roman: Kate, fill me in here, will ya? Why all this hostility all of a sudden?
Kate: All of a sudden? Oh, god, did you really expect me to stay last night after we made... after we had sex?
Roman: Yeah, I did. Why wouldn't I?
Kate: Isn't it obvious?
Roman: If it were, would we be having this conversation?
Kate: Could we stop answering questions with questions?
Roman: And that's not a question?
Kate: Well, it's obvious that you have an aversion to declarative sentences, okay? You came here to talk, but you don't want to talk. You don't want to listen. You just want to do one thing. But you know something? Taking me to bed is not going to fix everything. It is not going to fix anything. You don't want to deal with the issue. You want to avoid it.
Roman: And what issue am I avoiding?
Kate: Oh, god, I don't have the energy for this! Roman, read my lips. Go away.
[ Cellular phone rings ]
[ Ring ]
Roman: Brady. Yeah, go ahead. All right, all right, I'll be right there. Well, kate, you know, as much fun as this has been, I'm going to have to leave the pleasure of your company. Duty calls. Apparently, the sky is falling.
Kate: Oh, god, what are you talking about?
Roman: Every lunatic in salem is calling in about some kind of tremor -- probably a truck going by or something equally as scary.
Kate: No, no, because I felt it when I... I thought the elevator was broken. Which is another reason not to not buy this building. I guess you're the only person in salem who didn't feel it. Imagine that.
Roman: I gotta go.
Kate: And no one's stopping you.
Cassie: Rex has never been alone before. He must be so scared. I mean, what if the kidnapper takes the money and decides to kill him, anyway?
Tony: No, rex will not be harmed.
Cassie: I know you will do whatever you can, but you don't know the future. You can't tell. You can't promise me that, can you?
Tony: Cassie, we can't waste any more time. I've got to get to the safe and take that money. And I will do whatever I can to make sure that your brother is rescued. And that stupid, stupid man who did this... is going to learn an unforgettable lesson.
Marlena: John, we'd better call roman or...tony.
John: Doc, doc, the kidnapper unwittingly just called the I.S.A. I know what I'm doing.
Marlena: Oh. Oh, yeah. I know you do. I'm just... scared. Oh, john... who would do a thing like this?
John: A guy who thinks he's going to make an easy buck. I won't let anything happen to rex, okay? Okay? All right.
Man: Bye-bye, rex.
Rex: Are you coming back?
Man: Okay. I'll tell you this much of my plan -- if I don't get the dough, you get to stay here and rot. Anif I do, sure, I'll come back... just long enough to kill you.
Rex: [ Thinking ] I need you cassie... just as much as you need me. We're twins. We're supposed to be together forever. Can you hear me? Can you see where I am? Find me, cassie.
Cassie: Rex. Born to getstanding ovations.
Victor: I believed once upon a time that you had true feelings for me. If not love, it was the fondness, the respect.
Nicole: I did. You were the man who believed in me, who saved me from myself. I thought our marriage was the very best I could hope for. I bought into the lies you told me. And probably yourself -- that you were in love with me. But nobody loves a beautiful bird ia cage. Why did I think I could make you happy when I couldn't even be happy? Or free?
Lexie: Hello, hal.
Hal: Mrs. Carver.
Lexie: How are you?
Hal: How are you? Congratulations.
Lexie: Thank you. I'm great, and so happy not to be cooped up inside now that spring has sprung. Ahh. I hope I won't be in your way if I take a few laps around the grounds.
Hal: Of course not. We've missed you around here.
Lexie: Oh, thank you. I can't wait to see what you've done with the gardens.
Hal: They're a bit of a work in progress. We lost a few old trees this winter, and we just pulled them out yesterday, so watch your step. There's some pretty big craters out there.
Lexie: Okay. Thanks for the warning. You sure I'm not in your way?
Hal: No, I, uh, I'm off. Unless you need me to stay.
Lexie: No, no, no. You go ahead. Enjoy your day. You take care.
Lexie: Tony! I'm so glad you're home. I was hoping to take a nice brisk walk and then have a wonderful catch-up visit with my favorite brother.
Tony: Oh, alexandra, we've got to do this another time. Excuse me.
Lexie: Wait. Wait. What's wrong?
Tony: Oh, nothing. It's just business. Nothing that would concern you or for you to worry about. Come back again soon, okay?
Lexie: What --
Tony: Bye. No, no, no, no.
Marlena: John, john, we have the money. Give it to them.
John: Sweetheart, I don't give a damn about the money. This is all about protecting my family, plain and simple.
Marlena: Thanks for saying that.
John: Rex is family. And I'm gonna bring him home safe and sound.
Marlena: I love you.
John: I'll see you soon. Don't worry. Don't worry.
Marlena: Uh, mr. Smith? Oh. I'm glad I caught you. This is dr. Evans. I need to see you right away.
Abe: We're getting calls from the riverside area, university, westside district, brookville. Look, I want you to put all this data -- compile it so we can trace the epicenter of this. Until we have a definitive cause, we have to treat this as an isolated incident. All right?
Man: Yes, sir.
Abe: Let's get to work.
Abe: Oh, roman, thanks for coming in.
Roman: Well, it's just the way I wanted to spend my day off -- hand-holding the panicked population because they felt the earth move. So, what was it?
Abe: We don't know yet.
Roman: What do you mean, you don't know yet?
Abe: You didn't feel it?
Roman: No. Apparently I must have been driving when it happened.
Man: Commander, dr. Golden of U.S. Geological survey is on line one for you.
Abe: All right, thank you. Let's see what he has to say, h? Yeah, carver. Uh-huh. Yeah. Well, your readings pretty much correlate with our reports from the field site.
Kate: Well, here I am in your place of business for the whole world to see. I'm all yours. You're not upset, are you? You're not going to arrest me for indecent exposure?
Roman: Only if that's the way I can keep you here.
Kate: Oh. You're not ashamed omeme?
Roman: Kate, you are absolutely perfect the way you are.
Kate: I've had failed marriages. It aosost ruined my life. I don't know why I was even thinking of taking the slightest step in that direction. I mean, we don't need to be serious. We're having so much fun. More fun than I've ever had. Who needs complications in life, right?
Roman: Are you sure that's the way you feel? I thought you wanted a commitment from me.
Kate: Oh... I need to be committed for making such a foolish mistake. I almost ruined a really good thing. The only commitment I need or want from you is what I already have. You have made my life so much better, and I want you in it. You satisfy me completely.
Kate: So what do you say, captain?
Kate: Roman? What are you --
Roman: I love you, kate roberts. I don't want to waste any more time. Life is way too short, and I want to spend the rest of mine with you. I'm sorry. This is so spontaneous, I didn't even have time to go to a jeweler. And I know this isn't me. I want to do this the right way. And I will do it the right way. But I didn't want to wait any longer to say these words.
Roman: Kate, will you marry me?
Kate: Yes! Yes! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! ! Oh, yes, yes. Oh...
[ Ground rumbling ]
Roman: What the hell --
Cassie: Rex. Oh, god. Oh, god, please be okay. Oh, thank god.
Cassie: Does your head hurt you? Are you okay?
Rex: [ Groans ] I just exhausted myself from trying to get you to -- you found me.
Cassie: I felt you. I heard you trying to call me. What happened? Who did this to you?
Rex: We've got to get out of here. The danger -- it isn't over.
Cassie: Danger? What danger are you talking about? You're okay now.
[ Ground rumbling ]
Nicole: Why have we stopped?
Victor: Why don't you go check the tires?
Man: Okay. I'll do that.
Victor: You didn't feel the trembling?
Nicole: Do you think I'm oblivious? I spend myhohole life trembling now, victor.
Nicole: Why did we bring it if we're not gonna drink it?
Victor: If your stupor will make my afternoon more pleasant, then go right ahead. I'm not the one being punished here.
Nicole: So, you don't think our marriage is torture?
Victor: Not for the reasons you think. I take my vows very seriously.
Nicole: Like you know what it means to love, honor, cherish. Oh, and did we say obey?
Victor: Better/worse, richer/poorer, till death do us part. How dare you blame what's happened to us on me, nicole? You think I enjoy treating you like a slave, like a piece of property? I wanted to make you a goddess, a queen.
Nicole: And that would make you god?
Victor: No, but you had to act like a whore, so I treated you accordingly. Don't tell me you feel demeaned or offended, because you deserve exactly what you're getting.
Nicole: I suppose I do.
[ Knock on door ]
Marlena: Oh, come in. Come in. I wasn't sure I could reach you. I didn't know if the number you gave me was any good.
Ops: Look, I rushed over as soon as I got it. You know, my cover number forwards to my private line. So, what's up, doc?
Marlena: Don't be flip with me. I --
Ops: Hey, wh-what's wrong? Something happen to john?
Marlena: I hope not. Rex has been kidnapped.
Ops: Your son?
Marlena: And john'sonone to try to find him -- alone.
Ops: He's the best man you could get for the job. You know, you are very lucky to be married to him.
Marlena: Yes, I know that.
Ops: So, what do you want me to do?
Marlena: I want you to try to help him.
Ops: If he wanted my help, he would have asked me, believe me. I mean, this is fbi jurisdiction.
Marlena: Fbi, I.S.A. -- I don't care. As his friend, I want you to try to back him up. Look, if anything happens to john or to -- I need you to do whatever you can, all right?
John: [ Sighs ]
[ Clears throat ]
[ Ground rumbling ]
[ Rumbling stops ]
Kate: Joelle, it's kate. Yeah. Well, I certainly felt it up here on the 25th floor. A good acid test, right, for the building? Okay, listen, I'll call her when I get back. I'm really anxious to get out of the building. Yeah, okay, I'll see you in a few minutes.
[ Ground rumbling ]
[ Jiggles handle ]
Ops: I am john's friend, dr. Evans. I'll do whatever I can. Where'd he go?
Marlena: I don't know.
Ops: Don't worry about it. I'm rere I can find him.
Marlena: Yeah. I'm sure you can.
Ops: We'll let you know when we find rex.
Marlena: Thank you.
Woman: What is that?
Man: I don't know.
[ Murmuring ]
Man #2: Y'all all right?
Man: I'm okay.
[ Murmuring continues ]
John: Well, I'll be damned. Kidnapper's looking for a double ransom.
[ Ground rumbling ]
John: What the hell is going on?
Cassie: What was that? Rex, that happened before. Did the kidnapper use explosives?
Rex: No. It's much worse than that.
Cassie: What are you talking about?
Rex: Look, it's too complicated to explain right now. Just get me untied. I've got to stop it.
Cassie: Stop what?
Rex: Oh, no. No. It might be too late.
Roman: Well, here we go again. Hang on. Feel it?
Abe: Did you feel those?
Roman: Yeah, we all did.
Abe: You know, we don't know the cause of this, but it's getting stronger. The mayor declared a state of emergency. We're getting all the disaster protocols on the airwaves.
Roman: Well, kate picked a hell of a time to go visit the top floor of a falling-down building.
Abe: Well, call her.
Roman: I am. You know where lexie is?
>>Bebe: No, she insisted on going walking, it was such a beautiful day. I hope she's home by now. This is not the kind of stress she needs to bring a baby into the world.
Lexie: I can't stay here.
[ Ground rumbling loudly ]
Lexie: [ Screams ]
Brandon: I needed the perfect place to ask you something very important.
Marlena: Everything's all right. And the people we all love are safe.
John: What the hell is going on here?
