Days of Our Lives Transcript Thursday 9/4/03--Canada; 9/5/03--USA

By Eric

Mickey: Okay. I'll have the draft of your revised will ready for you later in the day.

Abe: All right, thanks, mickey. I really do appreciate it.

Mickey: Yeah. Abe... sign the will, and then forget it. Get on with living.

Abe: Thank you.

Mickey: Take care.

Abe: I'll be in touch.

Lexie: Okay, one pitcher of fresh lemonade coming up. Oh. Mickey left?

Abe: Yeah, he's a busy man, you know?

Lexie: So... what were the two of you talking about?

Abe: Business.

Lexie: Abe, I want the truth.

Jack: Good, good. Very interesting, yes. Thank you. Keep me posted, all right? Yes. Ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha.

Jennifer: Do you know what? I don't even want to know.

Jack: Abe carr'r's informant was shot one time, close range, execution-style.

Jennifer: Oh, dear god.

Jack: This is my investigation. I am telling you...

Jennifer: Jack!

Jack: I'm going to crack this case, win the pulitzer, and then we are going to go --

Jennifer: A man was killed. Do you understand that?

Jack: I know, I just was --

Jennifer: Just what? You're just ining to put your life on the line to solve a case? I am not going to stand for it. Do you understand me? You are going to stop this right now. You are going to stop.

George strait:

To honkytonkville

an ideal home

away from home sweet home

honkytonkville

where I don't feel

a thing

since you've been gone

Mimi: [ Coughs ]

Bonnie: That you, honeybird?

Where the future's

always bright

in the glow

of the neon lights I could have written a first-rate country hit, don't you think? With all the pain and heartache in my sad little life. Ha ha. Oh, here she is -- my baby girl.

Mimi: I'm not a baby, mom.

Bonnie: Peanut?

Mimi: No thanks.

Bonnie: They're smothered in chocolate.

Mimi: I'm good. Actually, I just came to get the last of my stuff to take to the loft.

Bonnie: Oh, I wish you wouldn't go. I miss you already.

Mimi: I'll be close by. You'll see me plenty.

Bonnie: Well, it's just I-I want so much to be a part of your life.

Mimi: You will be.

Bonnie: Then when do I get to meet this boy who's courting you? Good ol' richie rich rex dimera.

Mimi: Oh, you can forget that. There's no way you're ever meeting rex.

Belle: Stop it! Shawn! Stop it! Stop it!

Rex: What the hell's the matter with you?!

Shawn-d: I want you out of my place, dimera!

Rex: You're a lunatic!

Belle: Stop it, both of you!

Shawn-d: You think I'm actually going to live with this psycho who tried to kill my parents?

Belle: What?

Shawn-d: Yeah, rex has decided that he's my new roommate.

Rex: Your boyfriend is delusional, belle. He's the psycho. God. The bradys won't be happy till they kill all the dimeras.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Tony: Celeste.

Celeste: Something's terribly wrong, tony. I can feel it. Something very bad has happened.

Tony: Yes. It seems there's been a death in the family. Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. |Wtx

Mimi: Look, mom, I just -- I don't think rex is ready to meet the family, that's all.

Bonnie: You're not ash--

[ Coughs ] Ashamed -- ashamed of me, are you, mimi?

[ Choking ]

Mimi: Are ever going to quit?

Bonnie: I'm trying. It's not that easy, you know. Ooh.

Mimi: Sighs ]

Bonnie: Where are you going?

Mimi: To turn off this nashville.

Bonnie: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

[ Music stops ]

Bonnie: I was enjoying that.

Mimi: I couldn't hear myself think.

Bonnie: Yeah, well, I like that music. It makes me feel alive. You know, when david left me -- when your daddy abandoned for the fourth and final time...

Mimi: Mom!

Bonnie: I felt free. I made myself a promise that I would go back to being the person I was before I got married. See, my name is bonnie. That's what people used to call me. That is my real name. But for some reason, your father insisted on calling me maureen, my middle name -- probably because he knew I hated it. So now he's gone, and I'm back to being bonnie, the life of the party! Now, see, there you go looking all embarrassed like I got two heads or something.

Mimi: I'm not embarrassed.

Bonnie: Well, you sure as hell shouldn't be. I keep myself together. I mean, this place may not be spotless, but I'm doing fine.

[ Chokes ] Fine --

Mimi: What happened to your nicotine patch?

Bonnie: Damn thing doesn't work at all.

Mimi: Okay, 'cause that's the one I put on last month. You have to change them, you know.

Bonnie: Forget the patch. I got a better system. You seththis rubber band? Every time I get the urge, I just pull on it like that!

Mimi: Brilliant.

Bonnie: Yeah, I read about it. I read about it in a supermarket tabloid.

Mimi: I've got to go pack up.

Bonnie: Wait. Wait.

Mimi: What, mom?

Bonnie: The roof in my bedroom is leaking.

Mimi: Okay.

Bonnie: I need money for repairs. You know, cleaning house for rich folk in town ain't paying that great. You know, it's okay if your name's a horton or dimera or even a brady. I mean, you got it made around here.

Mimi: Those people work hard, too.

Bonnie: Yeah, at counting their money. Must be a real, real stretch, huh?

Mimi: You know, we've been lucky, too. Do you remember when my friends built us this house?

Bonnie: Yeah, well, now look at it.

Mimi: I've got to go.

Bonnie: No, wait. Wait. Maybe your friends can come to the rescue again. That boyfriend of yours -- rex. He's rolling in it.

Mimi: No!

Bonnie: Couldn't he just loan us a grand or two?

Mimi: Oh, my god. No. I do not date rex for his money, mom.

Bonnie: Oh, right. Oh, right, it's love. Oh! Yeah, well, I was in love once with your father, and we ended up in a cardboard box.

Mimi: Please, don't do this!

Bonnie: We deserve better, meems -- you and me both. And this rex dimera could be our friend. He could be our ticket to easy street.

Shawn-d: It is the dimeras who are out to get the bradys, not the other way around. That is dimera double talk.

Belle: No, we are going outside to get some air. Out, out. Get.

Rex: This might work out even better than I thought. Tony was right -- keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Tony: Yes, rex moved out of the house earlier today. It ft t like there was a death in the family.

Celeste: Thank god.

Tony: Hmm? What -- oh, I'm sorry. You didn't -- I didn't mean to alarm you. No, no one died, actually, but rex leaving, actually, it's been very hard, though.

Celeste: Yes, I understand.

Tony: Well, what are you doing here, celeste?

Celeste: Tony, I'm sure that you want your sister's family to stay close, to be happy.

Tony: Well, yeah. I'd do anything for alexandra.

Celeste: Yes, I know. And, well, that is why I'm here to ask you for a favor. Alexandra's future depends on it.

Lexie: Abe? Tell me.

Abe: There's nothing to tell. Just checking with mickey. I just wanted to consult with him about the legalities of an early pension.

Lexie: Oh, yes, yes, yes, because you are retiring.

Abe: Ha ha ha ha.

Lexie: Oh, honey, that's so great. I'm so glad you're already making plans and...

Abe: Yeah, you know, I want us all taken care of.

Lexie: And I want you off the police force asap. The world's too dangerous these days.

Abe: Well, the world's not that dangerous. Just certain people -- criminals who need to be locked up.

Lexie: Okay, I'm not going to fight with you about tony, not -- not now.

Abe: Lexie --

Lexie: Tony will be theo's godfather. He adores his little nephew, abe. He'd do anything for him. All tony cares about is his family.

Abe: Same as me.

Lexie: But you're going to drag your feet on this early retirement so you can make one more major arrest, right? My own brother. I have to go.

Abe: Where?

Lexie: I have some errands to run for the christening. Will you stay with theo till my mom gets here?

Abe: Lex, wait.

Lexie: I don't have time now, abe. I have to go. We'll talk later, okay?

Abe: All right, be careful, will you?

Lexie: You be careful.

Abe: To protect my family...

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Abe: Carver. Oh, yeah. Sure, come on over.

Jack: Really? How about just to -- all right. Thanks so much. Keep me posted, all right? Good. Sorry.

Jennifer: Can we talk now?

Jack: Yes, I-I'm so sorry. You were saying...

Jennifer: You know, it's like -- it's like I'm not even here sometimes.

Jack: Jennifer, I understand this has been difficult for you, and you've been a little high-strung lately.

Jennifer: High-strung?

Jack: I just meant --

Jennifer: Yeah, I'm high-strung. I have every right to be worried. You -- you are so in deep in this dimera investigation, and you know it, jack.

Jack: Jennifer --

Jennifer: A man was killed.

Jack: I know. I saw the body.

Jennifer: Oh, how lovely for you.

Jack: Come on, jennifer.

Jennifer: I am not going to let the father of my child hang around crime scenes digging up dirt on killers who would be more than willing to dig a 6-foot hole and throw you in it in cement shoes.

Jack: The cement shoes are for soon-to-be corpses dropped into the river.

Jennifer: You get my point, jack.

Jack: Yes, you've painted quite an illustrious picture. You're not keen on the idea of me pushing up daisies, ending up in a landfill, as fish bait, worm food --

Jennifer: Shut up. Shut up and listen to me. I am afraid, and I have every right to be afraid that something terrible is going to happen to you. My grandmother was having visions of my grandpa tom, and she senses an omen, and it is not a good one, jack.

Jack: But you remember how that saying goes -- whoever's name is called out by the spirit is doomed. Well, tom didn't call out my name, so aren't you relieved?

Jennifer: Would you please reconsider what you are doing?

Mickey: O j jack, jack. Here you are. Hi, darling. Listen, we still need to talk about this thing.

Jack: Uh, uh, uh, jennifer, if you could excuse us for a minute, I need to pick mickey's brain on a legal matter.

Jennifer: What legal matter?

Mickey: You haven't told her yet?

Jack: I -- well, uh... well, no, not exactly.

Jennifer: What is going on, jack? This is "out there" on global - I'm seanna collins.

Jack: Uh, it's -- it's an arcane legal thing, a glitch, if you will, a snafu that allows the defendant to -- well, I won't bore you with the details.

Jennifer: That's okay. Bore me.

Jack: It's research for my investigation.

Jennifer: Okay. I'll let the two of you go discuss this little glitch. Uncle mickey, will you please look out for my husband and make sure he doesn't do anything idiotic or reckless?

Mickey: Yeah, well, I'll do my best.

Jack: Right.

Lexie: Ah, hello there.

>>Icickey: Lexie, hi, darling. How are you?

Lexie: I'm fine, thank you. Hi, jack.

Jack: Lexie.

Lexie: Jennifer, I'm so glad I ran into you.

Jennifer: Hey, what's up, lex?

Lexie: I need a favor.

Jack: I'll see you at home, jennifer, right?

Jennifer: Yes, you will see me at home.

Jack: And, mickey, I need you, all right?

Mickey: Yeah, excuse me.

Lexie: Okay. Is everything all right?

Jennifer: Oh, lexie, every hour that passes, I worry more and more about that man.

Lexie: Join the club.

Jack: Jennifer can't know that I'm having this will drn n up. She's nervous enough as it is.

Mickey: Jack, come on. My niece is a tough cookie. Sooner or later, she'll get to the truth. That won't be pretty.

Jack: Well, I'm willing to take my chances. Hopefully, by the time she finds out, I'll be gone. Not anytime soon, of course.

Mickey: Look, I'll get the final paperwork finished today and send shawn over with the copies.

Jack: Thank you, mickey, and, look, have him mark it "private and confidential."

Mickey: Your funeral.

Jack: Let's hope not.

Belle: So?

Shawn-d: The landlord confirmed. Everything that rex said is true. The original tenant ryan signed his half of the lease over to one rex dimera.

Belle: Guess you're stuck.

Shawn-d: He's up to something.

Belle: Shawn.

Shawn-d: No, why else would he want to be roommates with me? It's because it's a new way for him to come after the bradys.

Blele: Don't you think you're being a little paranoid?

Shawn-d: Why else would he want to live with me?

Belle: Oh, I don't know. Maybe to be close to mimi. I mean, that's why you moved into the loft, isn't it, to be close to your girlfriend?

Shawn-d: Yes, but --

Belle: I think it will be fine, and I know mimi is going to be totally psyched that rex is moving in across the hall.

Shawn-d: I've got it.

Belle: What?

Shawn-d: Mimi and rex can move into the loft across the hall, and I'll move in here with you.

Mimi: For the 6 millionth time, mom, I am not dating rex for his money.

Bonnie: You can't admit that it's nice to have a beau buy you nice things?

Mimi: I don't want him buying me things. In fact, he tries to pay my way all the time, but I don't let him.

Bonnie: Foolish girl.

Mimi: It's called self-respect, mother. I-I am making o own way in life, and I am proud of it. The money I won on "love is blind" --

Bonnie: Oh, $50,000 ain't going to get you too far, sweetheart.

Mimi: Well, it's helping now. I got my car, paid my tuition, I get to go through college without working -- even managed to set some money aside for grad school. I am improving my life. I am going to have a career, I am going to be successful without handouts, with-- without loans, without charity --

Bonnie: Whoa! Awesome! What a great speech. Should I clap now, or are you going to keep yakking?

Mimi: You know, I think it's really sad when someone's big effort to better herself consists of buying lotto tickets every night with her last dollar.

Bonnie: You're not going to think it's so damn sad when I win 50 million bucks.

Mimi: All your hard-earned money, mom, righinin the garbage -- literally.

Bonnie: You got to pay to play.

Mimi: And if your bedroom roof is leaking, why did you fly off to vegas last month with all your gambling pals?

Bonnie: It was a package deal. Free food and 50% off double occupancy.

Mimi: And all that saved money -- where did it go? Video poker and the slots.

Bonnie: Not true.

Mimi: Oh, no? What'd you do, mom? Did you -- did you hit the museums?

Bonnie: I just -- I was wandering around. I didn't gamble, mimi, I swear.

Mimi: Don't lie to me, mom. God.

Bonnie: It's my fun, mimi. You got to have fun, right? Or else how are you going to get through the day?

Mimi: There are other ways to have fun besides throwing your money away. We could figure something out, okay? You and me -- I'll help you.

Bonnie: You really want to help?

Mimi: Anything.

Bonnie: Then let me cook a home-cooked meal for you and that handsome dimera boy.

Mimi: He's not a -- um, ready for dinner.

Bonnie: Why not? I'll clean the house, I'll get out the goodishes --

Mimi: No, it's not that.

Bonnie: No? Then it is me, isn't it?

Mimi: No.

Bonnie: You are ashamed of me.

Mimi: No, mom, I just --

Bonnie: No, where are my cigarettes? Get out of my face.

Mimi: Mom, please try and understand.

Bonnie: No, I understand real well, mimi. You just don't think I'm classy enough to hang out with your friends because I don't wear designer clothes, because my hands are all rough and dry from cleaning houses. Well, to hell with you.

Mimi: Mom!

Bonnie: No, go! Go -- go have your fancy meals at the dimera mansion while I sit here eating my frozen food. Go! Get out of here!

[ Boom ]

Celeste: You say that you will do anything for your sister.

Tony: You know I will.

Celeste: That her security and her happiness mean everything to you.

Tony: Of course.

Celeste: And you will agree, tony, that alexandra is very happy with her family and her new son, yes?

Tony: Celeste, get to the point

Celeste: I want you to give me your word, tony. Tell me that you will never harm abraham. 12 months old.

Belle: I don't know, shawn. Living together?

Shawn-d: You think your parents would let you?

Belle: I wasn't thinking about my parents. I was thinking about how it would be for us, living in the same apartment, sleeping in the same apartment. It's hard enough for us to keep our purity pledge living apart, right?

Shawn-d: Yeah, like last night.

Belle: Right. Now, imagine me getting into my little baby doll pjs every night, and you're all cozy under the covers in whatever it is that you sleep in, then you come in, give me a kiss good night --

Shawn-d: Okay, okay. I get the picture. It's not a very good idea, but I wish we still could do it, because it could be a great idea.

Belle: Well, we can't, and unless you come up with another solution, you're just going to have to give living with rex a try.

Shawn-d: [ Groans ]

Belle: Shawn, if you don't, it's going to mean that you have to give up living across the hall from me.

Shawn-d: No, I'm not doing that.

Belle: Okay, then.

Shawn-d: Fine. I will try.

Belle: Thank you.

Shawn-d: And aside from living close to you, which is the major reason why I am not backing out of this deal, maybe sharing an apartment with rex, being around him 24/7, will allow me to figure out what the hell he is really up to.

Rex: Ha ha. Nothing would hurt you more, would it, shawn, than losing your precious girlfriend?

Bonnie: [ Coughing ] Damn stove.

Mimi: What?

Bonnie: Aah, broke down again.

Mimi: That's what that huge, awful explosion was?

Bonnie: Sounded like the end of the world, didn't it?

Mimi: Mom, can't, like, a broken stove, like, blow up the whole house?

Bonnie: I sure as hell hope not.

Mimi: Did I not give you money to fix it? Did you not call the repair guy?

Bonnie: Stop your whining. I had to use that money for some other repairs. You know, things are breaking down around here all the time, and I don't have the money to patch them up.

Mimi: Okay, I understand. I'm just going to go ahead and call the guy myself and arrange for him to fix it or repair -- replace it or --

Bonnie: Oh, no, no, no, no. No -- too late, too late, too late. Everybody's already gone. Those repair guys -- they keep worse hours than a bank.

Mimi: All right, then I will call first thing in the morning.

Bonnie: Good girl. You get that taken care of for me.

Mimi: Right. And now I have to go. If anything else happens with the stove, call me on my cell phone, okay? I'll be right over.

Bonnie: I'm so lucky to have you. You're such a wonderful daughter, mimi. Come here. I love you very much. You know that, don't you?

Mimi: I love you, too. I'll see you later, okay?

Bonnie: Okay.

Bonnie: [ Chuckles ] There's going to be a lot more where this came from... thanks to you, my baby girl.

Jennifer: Mm. It's good. All right, so?

Lexie: So... I need some suggestions.

Jennifer: Oh, okay. I love giving those.

Lexie: Good. Professional photographers for theo's christening.

Jennifer: Oh, well, that's easy. I have a rolodex full of them.

Lexie: Great, great.

Jennifer: That's it? That's the favor?

Lexie: Well, I also just wanted to talk.

Jennifer: Oh, I see. You just wanted to talk. Okay. Well, last time, you seemed very worried about abe, and now you seem very happy.

>>Exie: Abe wants another baby.

Jennifer: [ Gasps ] Lexie. Lexie, that's wonderful.

Lexie: Yeah. A little girl. Of course, we'd both welcome another boy, but... well, variety's always a good thing.

Jennifer: That's great. Are you going to start trying right now?

Lexie: We might. Jennifer, abe is such an amazing father. He's so caring and nurturing. You know, it's very unusual for a man to want to change the baby and feed him and clothe him and -- and bathe him.

Jennifer: Ha ha ha.

Lexie: But abe is just determined that we share all of that.

Jennifer: You know what? You're right, that is very unusual, but jack was the same way. He was so nurturing.

Lexie: Oh.

Jennifer: I mean, he still is. Well, as nurturing as you can be with an 11-year-old who is dying to be independent.

Lexie: Oh, my goodness. Well, do you think that you and jack might have another child someday?

Jennifer: Uh, you know, actually, we have talked about it. I think that jack would love to have a little boy. You know, do the whole little league thing.

Lexie: Jack deveraux jr.

Jennifer: That is a frightening thought.

[ Both laugh ]

Lexie: Well, it seems both our husbands are interested in leaving a legacy -- a couple of children to carry on their name.

Jennifer: Why do you say it like that?

Lexie: Like what?

Jennifer: Leaving a legacy. You say it like they're not going to be here, like they're going to be gone.

Lexie: Oh, my god, jennifer, no, no. I didn't mean that. I --

Jennifer: I know you didn't, but you said it like that for a reason. It's because of the danger that they're in, and it's because we are trying so hard not to worry, and we're not having any luck.

Lexie: Both of our husbands go on and on about protecting us, but...

Jennifer: We need to protect them.

Abe: Well, come on in.

Jack: Abe, thanks for finally making time for me.

Abe: No problem.

Jack: Look, I've been going over this again and again in my mind, but we need to compare notes, all right?

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Abe: Oh, excuse me. Oh, thiss s the station. I should take this. I'll be back.

Jack: The station? Maybe you should include me --

Abe: Carver.

Jack: Abe.

Abe: Yeah.

Jack: Search... tony dimera.

Tony: For pity's sake, celeste, why would I want to harm abe carver?

Celeste: Don't play me for a fool, tony. He is police commander, and he is investigating you and would arrest you, if he could, for dimera crimes.

Tony: And being the generous soul that I am, I'm willing to look past all that and forgive the man.

Celeste: The truth, anthony. Do you see alexandra as a widow? Would you be happy to see abraham carver dead?

Tony: Oh, don't be ridiculous. Why would I want to break my sister's heart?

Celeste: Oh, well, I can give you one very good reason.

Tony: Really? Well, I'd love to hear it.

Celeste: Your father -- stefano. "A" or "b". I just want to finish this.

I really like the -- i like .

Johnny: Personally i think it's a good thing.Know.

I know. First thing's first. Okay. I need a little --strumming the guitar. Thauf strong sound. E that under consideration, all right? Should go. You know?

Liz: What do you say, johnnie?

Lucas: Put on a little

Lucas: With all the legalization. ]

Belle: Look, shawn, I don't want you to get mad, but I think you should take it easy with rex and back off a little bit.

Shawn-d: I'm not going to stop investigating him.

Belle: But you can't investigate him all the time when you're his roommate.

Mimi: Mm, belle's right.

Shawn-d: You knew about this, that rex was planning on moving into my apartment?

Mimi: Yeah, rex told me. Of course, he called it his apartment, which is a whole other discussion.

Belle: Don't you think that's a little weird?

Mimi: Why? Oh, wait, so it's completely cool and wonderful if shawn moves in across the hall from you --

Belle: Mimi, that is not what I meant.

Mimi: But as soon as rex does the same thing, you immediately assume he's got some other agenda.

Shawn-d: You've got to admit that he's been acting secretive lately, like he's been hiding something.

Mimi: No, I won't admit that, and I must say, shawn, that your behavior could be what's making rex act weird.

Shawn-d: Oh, come on.

Mimi: No, you come on, shawn. You broke into the dimera mansion, you snooped through rex's things, but it's okay, right? Because you're adorable you. Talk about a double standard.

>>Shawn-d: All right, I-I don't know what you're calling a double standard, paranoia, I don't care. Your boyfriend is up to no good, and you just better watch out.

Mimi: Don't tell me what to do. God, who do you think you are, shawn?

Belle: Mimi, wait a second.

Shawn-d: No, no, no, just let her go.

Mimi: Hey.

Rex: What -- what's wrong?

Mimi: Oh, just everything.

Rex: Tell me.

Mimi: I don't understand, rex. You move in here behind shawn's back and decide to live with a guy who hates your guts. Why would you do that?

Rex: I knew shawn wouldn't like the idea, okay, but it's not important to me. All I care about is spending as much time together as we can, all right?

Mimi: But still...

Rex: Look, I did it because I love you, mimi

Mimi: Rex.

Tony: What does my late father have to do with all othis?

>>Eleste: Stefano never wanted his daughter to be with abraham. Perhaps you are carrying out your father's last wishes.

Mabel: Oh, I didn't realize you had company, count.

T tony: Oh, it's all right, mabel.

Mabel: I'll come back.

Tony: No, no, no, please. Everything's fine.

Celeste: Everything is far from fine, antony.

Tony: Listen, I need to get back to my work.

Celeste: I've had premonitions, and someone very close to me is in mortal danger.

Tony: Yes, if you don't mind, can we talk about this later? I'm a busy man.

Celeste: And I fear that it is abraham.

Tony: I said I'm busy!

Celeste: Do you want him out of the way?!

Tony: Didn't I discuss with you earlier that I didn't? Why would I want to harm my sister?

Celeste: Oh, yes. Because you love her so much.

Tony: Yes, that's right. I love my sister.

Celeste: Well, stefano loved her as well, and in the end, he hurt her deeply.

Tony: Well, I am not my father. I am nothing like him. Now the past is behind us. Stefano is dead! I'm in charge of this family now. This is out there on global - I'm seanna coI the e

Jennifer: Lexie, I know it worries you that abe has been investigating the dimeras, and believe me, the first thing I thought when that informant had been killed --

Lexie: Tony would never hurt abe.

Jennifer: So you don't think that tony is following in stefano's footsteps?

Lexie: Mnh-mnh. My father -- well, he was a complicated man, jennifer. And I know that he did some very bad things to a lot of people in salem. And I am trying to make amends, jennifer, to restore the dimera name.

Jennifer: I understand, lexie.

Lexie: I know that everyone in salem thinks that tony is carrying on the evil dimera legacy, but I haven't seen any proof of tony's "crimes." Have you?

Jennifer: Well, no. No, I haven'T.

Lexie: No, so doesn't he deserve a second chance like everyone else? Innocent until proven guilty?

Jack: Tony dimera. There you are. Okay, come on. All right, what have we got? Ton-- hey! We're working together on this, aren't we?

Abe: I'm a police officer, jack. You're a reporter. Our partnership is not an all-access pass.

Jack: Wait, whoa, wait. If I'm going to do this, I need full access. I've got to do this.

Abe: You don't have the training, jack. You have to be careful, or you're gointo be killed.

Jack: I can handle the danger.

Abe: Oh, jack, please.

Jack: Wait, what about you? Can you handle lexie's reaction to all this? I mean, you're going after her brother. How's that going to work?

Abe: You know, lexie used to be a police officer. She knows I've got a job to do. If I can prove what tony dimera's done, expose his crimes... yeah, it might hurt her. My god, it's going to hurt her even more in the end if she doesn't face up to the truth about her brother.

Jack: It's all about protecting one's family.

Abe: That's all that matters.

Jack: Carvers, hortons, bradys, deverauxs -- all the families are at stake here.

Abe: Which is why we have to bring down tony dimera for good.

Tony: What the hell did you do?

Mabel: I'm sorry, count dimera. I don't know how it could have --

Ton j just clean it up now.

Mabel: Yes, sir. Right away.

Tony: What are you doing? What is it?

Celeste: I do not sense your father in these ashes. I don't sense stefano here at all. (music throughout)

Mimi: All this anger, rex. I can't take it anymore. You treating shawn like he's your enemy, and shawn always suspicious of you. Could you please just do me one big favor and just try andetet along with him?

Rex: Fine. I'll try -- for you.

Mimi: Thank you.

Rex: Oh... you're the best thing in my life, mimi -- the only thing that keeps me sane.

Mimi: And you're moving right across the hall. Do you know how great that's going to be?

Rex: Why do you think I did it?

Mimi: Ooh, I almost forgot. This is so you can come over anytime.

Rex: Oh.

Mimi: What?

Rex: I don't think shawn will like that very much.

Mimi: You let me handle shawn, okay?

Belle: But mimi's in love with the guy, shawn.

Shawn-d: So I can't tell her what I think? I am mimi's friend, and rex is not only wrong for her, he is dangerous. Shouldn't that be pointed out to her?

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Shawn-d: Uncle mickey. Yeah, yeah, sure. No problem. Uh-huh. I'll head over there right now. All right, bye.

Belle: Work?

Shawn-d: Yep.

Belle: It's all right. I have to jump in the shower anyway.

Shawn-d: I wish I could stay and watch.

Belle: Don't be bad. Call me when you're done, okay?

Shawn-d: Fine. I will.

Mimi: We need to talk.

Shawn-d: No, mimi, I can'T.

Mimi: You are getting along with rex, and that's final.

Shawn-d: I have to get to work, and I cannot do this now.

Mimi: This is driving me nuts. We've got to make peace between our boyfriends.

Belle: You know what I'm thinking? Th're big boys, and they'll work it out eventually.

Mimi: Easier said than done.

>>Elelle: Can't we just concentrate on the fact that they're living across the hall?

Mimi: I know. It is pretty incredible, huh?

Belle: Roomie.

Mimi: Whoo! Living here, sharing this amazing place with you -- I don't know, I just feel like my life is just finally starting to come together.

Belle: Good. I'm glad. I have to jump in the shower. Oh, hey, you know what? That check you gave me for half of next month's rent?

Mimi: Yeah?

Belle: It bounced.

Mimi: What? That's totally impossible. I have tons of cash in my account. The money from "love is blind" is in there.

Belle: The bank probably just made a mistake, but you should check that out.

Mimi: Oh, I will. I'm going to go to the bank right now. I'm sorry. God, this doesn't help with my goal of being the perfect roommate.

Belle: Mimi, you are the perfect roommate. It's so not a big deal. Don't worry about it.

Mimi: Okay. This has to be a mistake.

Abe: U know, whatever we get on tony, the evidence has to be foolproof. Lexie won't be easily convinced. And once she is, when she finds out the truth about her brother, it's going to be very difficult for her.

Jack: You'll see her through.

Abe: Yeah, I will.

Jack: You're my role model, abe.

Abe: What?

Jack: You're my role model. Your sense of responsibility and loyalty to your family, it's inspiring.

Abe: Well, thank you.

Jack: No, no, I mean it, I mean it, I mean it. I want to be the kind of husband and father who looks after his family, makes su they're safe and secure in their future.

Abe: Well, that's great, jack. That's great, but don't talk like you're not going to be there for it.

Jack: I'm not. That's not what I meant.

Abe: You know, we have more in common than you think, deveraux.

Celeste: I do not sense your father here.

Tony: Because he isn'T. He's gone. Nothing left of him but ashes.

Mabel: Count dimera, you have no idea how sorry I am.

Tony: It's all right.

Mabel: I'm usually not that careless.

Tony: That's okay. I'll do it myself. Out of respect for my father.

Mabel: Whatever you want, sir.

Celeste: I do not sense stefano in these ashes. Your father and I were very close, tony. We have a child together.

Tony: Oh, spare me the history.

Celeste: For years, I was his loyal assistant. I knew him better than almost anyone.

Celeste: [ Shivers ] What if he's still alive? What if he's still out there?

Tony: Your imagination just keeps getting better and better. Now, if you'll excuse me, ululd you please leave? I'd like to spend some time alone with my father. Goodbye, celeste.

Tony: [ Chuckling ] Is is to all you guys outthere

These days this country makes the world nervous, including canada.

Because canadian peacekeepers are here to see it through.

And he's here to see it for canadians back home.

Wilf dinnick in afghanistan...

Tonight's "global national."

Mimi: My money. It's all gone -- checking, savings. There's nothing in there. What -- oh, my god, I've been robbed!

Bonnie: Hoo hoo hoo! Come to mama, baby, yeah! Oh, one of these tickets is gonna win me that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and I will be set for life. Ha ha. Thanks to you, mimi. Thanks to you.

Belle: [ Shivering ] Oh! Aah!

Abe: H-hey. Come in.

Shawn-d: Abe. Hey.

Abe: I've been expecting you.

Shawn-d: Jack. Wow, this is perfect. I was gonna track you down next.

Jack: Track me down?

Shawn-d: Yeah. I have those wills all set and ready for you to sign.

Lexie: Wills?

Jennifer: Wills?

Lexie: Abe!

Jennifer: Jack, what's going on?

Celeste: So strange. The urn... I'm sure those are not stefano's ashes. Oh, god. Could the phoenix have risen again?

[ Telephone rings ]

Tony: Hello? Well, yes, I've been expecting your call. Oh, don't worry, father. I know exactly what to do.

Mimi: You emptied my account! Where did you stash it? I want whatever's left.

Bonnie: I invested it.

Mimi: Oh, my god.

Abe: Jack, if you want out of this investigation --

Jack: No, no, no, no, no, no. I don't want out. I want to be right there when tony dimera goes down once and for all.

Tony: By the time the good people of salem find out that stefano dimera is alive, well, it'll be too late.
