By Eric

[ Ticking ]

Belle: [ Laughs ] Shawn, what are we doing in here? This is the bride's room.

Shawn-d: This.

Belle: Um, we -- we should probably get back inside.

Shawn-d: Why? Abe is not here yet.

Belle: Yeah, but when he gets here, the christening is going to start. Besides, don't you think this is bad luck?

Shawn-d: What, kissing the future bride in the bride's room? Are you blushing? That's what you are -- the future bride. I love you, belle black, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

Belle: Oh, my god, shawn, are you proposing to me?

Nicole: I've got to get rid of this before anyone finds out --

Victor: I'm not threatening you, brady. I'm just telling you to mind your own damn business.

Brady: Well, I can't do that. Nicole is really upset right now, and, look, I love you, and I respect you, but I'm also concerned for her.

Brady: Nicole... where could you have gone?

Nicole: [ Muffled screaming ]

Jennifer: All right, jack, you, uh, you take the bookstore I'll take the bakery.

Jack: What, are we shopping?

Jennifer: Why else would commander carver be late for his own son's christening? I mean, he's picking up a gift or a cake or something. Or something terrible has happened to him, jack. I don't know. I don't want to believe it. If you didn't think abe was here, why did you volunteer to come search salem place? What is that?

Jack: This is our ticket to the information superhighway. Or subway, or sewer system, as the case may be. If something is going on in salem, this is evidently the man to see.

Jennifer: You mean soththing that's going on that shouldn't be going on.

Jack: Exactly. If something untoward has happened to our police commander...

Jennifer: God forbid.

Jack: This is where our search starts.

Sami: Okay, all I have to do is put this back, and no one will ever know the difference.

Man: Hey! What do you think you're doing?

Sami: I --

Man: You're committing a crime, and I'm going to tell that officer right over there.

Sami: What?

Roman: Yeah. Yeah, I got 17 volunteers coming in on their day off to help canvass. No. No, bo, you stay right there. Right. If we hear from anybody who's seen abe, I'll let you know as soon as I can. Damn it, partner, where are you?

Kate: Open your jacket.

Lucas: Why?

Kate: Just do it. That a a gun.

Lucas: Yes, it is.

Kate: What are you doing with it?

Lucas: I think you know.

Kate: Lucas, I don't know, so why don't you enlighten me? What have you done?

Philip: If this christening doesn't start soon, I got to get back to the base.

Cassie: Yeah, I'm starving.

Philip: Well, there's a school next door. I'm pretty sure they got some vending machines.

Cassie: Marine survival skills. Lead the way.

Philip: Let's go.

Mimi: Just because you and cassie weren't created in the natural way, that doesn't mean you can't believe in god.

Rex: Well, if there is a god, he wouldn't care about me, not after everything I've done.

Mimi: Rex, what are you talking about? Answer me, rex. What have you done?

Tony: Yes. Abe carver's been dealt with.

John: Gotcha.

Tony: Give that back to me!

John: So who the hell is this?

[ Hangs up ]

John: Hmm.

Tony: Well, no wonder they didn't speak to you. They've probably been deafened. My phone.

John: Who was it? What the hell have you done with abe carver?

Lexie: My mom said that something terrible would happen to abe at noon. It's past noon, and abe is missing. Oh, my god, maggie, it really has happened.

Maggie: Now, we don't know that. Abe has been a police officer for how many years? No one knows how to take care of himself better than abe.

Lexie: But where is he? It's our baby's christening.

Maggie: Lexie, what? What is it?

Lexie: Oh, no. Oh, no.

Maggie: Lexie?

Celeste: [ Humming "rock-a-bye baby" ]

[ Gunshot ]

Celeste: Abraham, no. You can't be gone. Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Lexie: Oh...

Maggie: What's wrong, lexie?

Lexie: Oh, I just got the most awful feeling.

Maggie: Um, let's -- let's sit down.

Lexie: It's about abe.

Maggie: Now, lexie --

Lexie: This is it.

Maggie: No. Now, now, now, you're upset now. And you're scared.

Lexie: No. I know -- I know you think that my mind is playing tricks on me, but half the force is out there looking for my husband. If abe were stuck in traffic or got delayed somewhere along the way, they'd have found him by now. And since we haven't heard from them -- oh, god, I can't stop imagining the worst. It must be bad, maggie. It must be bad.

Jennifer: Jack, I know that this informant has helped bo and hope before, but he can't be accurately informed about every illegal thing going on in salem, right? And besides, abe being missing -- I don't want to think that that's connected to any kind of illegal doings. Looks like your informant is late.

Jack: Criminal types are rarely punctual.

Jennifer: He's a criminal type?

Jack: These days, who isn't?

Jennifer: Jack, you know, I was at this mall when abe's informant was killed right over there. And lexie and i have been so afraid that in this investigation that something terrible was gointo happen to our husbands, and now abe -- I don't want to even think about it, jack.

Jack: Well, fortunately, we don't have to think. Now we'll know, I hope. Tommy.

Tommy: Hey.

Jack: This is jennifer.

Tommy: Jennifer "in the house" deveraux. Don't think I don't know.

Jack: And then hopefully you're also aware that she's my wife.

Tommy: I'm pretty much plugged into everything that happens in this town.

Jack: That's what we're counting on. Now you can tell us where the commander is.

Jennifer: Actually, I'm piping you can't tell us. I'm hoping that he is safe and sound, and found already.

Roman: All right. I get that you haven't seen him, but I do have a couple more questions to ask you.

Sami: How can you accuse me of a crime? You left your box open, and I was closing it for you. I was trying to do you a favor.

Man: I didn't leave the box open, so do me a favor and save it.

Lucas: I -- I haven't done anything. I carry a gun because I work for tony dimera, remember?

Kate: Oh, I see. And he just asked you to carry it because, um... because what, he wants you to do his dirty work for him?

Lucas: Dimeras have a lot of enemies. This gun is for my own protection.

Kate: Oh, I see. So have you had to protect yourself -- or anyone else?

Lucas: You mean tony? I can't believe you're shocked. I have to be armed in my line of work.

Kate: In your line of work?

Lucas: Yes. And why are you asking me all these questions now?

Kate: You know, I think the better question is, why aren't you answering them?

Tony: I don't know what you thought you heard, ever-law-abiding brother of mine, but if you don't give me back my phone, I'll have to inform the police, and that will distract them from the very important business of finding abe carver.

John: Oh, come on. You don't give a damn about abe carver.

Tony: Oh, you wound me, john. No one cares more deeply than I.

John: Yeah, I'll bet. No worries. You'll get your phone back as soon as I find out who your conspirator is. This will only take a second. And, by god, it better not be too late for abe carver.

Shawn-d: I thought we weren't going to -- you -- you don't want to get married now -- you don't want to, do you?

Belle: No, no, of course not. It's like we said. We need to finish school, and then get jobs.

Shawn-d: And then I will make you my wife -- if that's what you want.

Belle: If that's what I want?

Shawn-d: Yeah, well, you know, a lot could change between now and then.

Belle: Nothing could change my mind about that.

Shawn-d: Me neither.

Belle: I love you so much, shawn. Do you remember what I said before about it maybe being bad luck for you to kiss me in the bride's room? I think I'm probably the luckiest person in the world.

Shawn-d: No. I think that would be me.

Belle: No, me.

Cassie: Hey, thank you so much.

Philip: Ahh!

Cassie: Aw. You know, it's a lucky thing you had all those quarters.

Philip: I know.

Cassie: Hey, that's a great game, isn't it -- quarters?

Philip: What would you know about that game -- quarters? Is that what you think I do in my spare time?

Cassie: I kww what you'd like to be doing in your spare time. Oh, making the moves on belle black.

Philip: Cassie, for the millionth time, shawn and belle are my friends. They're together, and they're happy, okay? Damn it.

Cassie: They're not happy. How many times have belle and shawn broken up? That makes her fair game. Philip, you're a marine. Go after what's right. Take charge of the situation. Give me that. I have fingernails.

Philip: But, you see, marines -- we're the methodical ones. We're the planners.

Cassie: I knew it. I knew you had plan to break up belle and shawn.

[ Gasps ] I am so sorry.

Rex: Mimi, I've done a lot of things wrong. All right, but the worst thing -- I haven't eaeated you the way you deserve to be treated.

Mimi: Rex, we all get angry and lose our tempers and say things that we wish we hadn't said. After what you've been through, I don't blame you for --

Rex: Taking it out on you? Look, mimi, that is the last thing I ever want to do. Okay, and if I can't forgive myself, there is no god who sits in judgment that's going to smile down on me. You know, he'll probably just throw a few more curses my way.

Mimi: You think you're cursed? Rex, you're born with every talent and everything in the world going for you. I know what you missed growing up, but look at what you have. I mean, most people would kill -- look, I mean, look at what your life was like two years ago, and what it is now. There's a whole new world here that you never even knew about.

Rex: Mimi, you're the only part of this world that's given me anything to be grateful for. Yoknow, who's treated me as another person who's worthy of being loved. And it's not because I'm family or because I'm useful. It's for who I am -- or at least who you think I am. So you want to tell me that a loving god intended this life for me?

Mimi: Would you rather not be here? Bad things happen to everyone, rex. That's just a part of life.

Rex: Why should it be? Look, I'm sorry, but it's ridiculous to believe that this chaos is the result of some well-intentioned or remotely intelligent plan.

Mimi: You know, for someone so smart, that is a really stupid thing to say.

Brady: Nicole! Damn it, where did you go?

Nicole: [ Muffled screaming ]

Nico: I'm stronger than you, so you might as well stop struggling. Okay? I'm going to take you upstairs... to your bedroom until you're feeling better. Aah! You want to spend the whole night in time-out?

Nicole: How about forever, nico?

Maggie: Lexie, why don't we go check on theo and zack at the nursery?

Lexie: Maggie, you don't know how much I want to hold my baby in my arms right now, but I-I just don't want to frighten him. I'm just -- I'm just too tense. I can'T. I --

Maggie: I know the minute that you hold that little guy, you're going to feel closer to abe, and I'll just bet a lot of the tension is just going to melt away.

Lexie: Okay.

Maggie: Okay.

Tommy: Hope is your cousin, right? I mean, you don't look anything like her, except -- except the beautiful part. I mean, all of you is mighty fine...

Jack: [ Clearing throat ]

Tommy: But both of you have -- sorry.

Jack: De nada.

Tommy: I, uh... this has been a huge waste of time -- yours, definitely not mine. I cannot help you with the commander carver deal.

Jack: Can't or won't?

Tommy: It's way out of my league, man. What I can do -- I can hook you up with darkside.

Jennifer: Darkside?

Jack: Fellow informant?

Tommy: I wouldn't call him that to his face.

Jennifer: But we can call him darkside? Do I -- do I want to know how he got that alias?

Tommy: No.

Jack: Fine. Whatever. Just lead on. Take us to him.

Both: "Darkside"?

Sami: [ Thinking ] God, dad, how long are you going to hang out at the mall? Would you just please go already? Um... okay, maybe you did close your box, but when I got here, it -- it was open, and some kid was going through it.

Man: I didn't see no kid.

Sami: That's because I scared him away for you.

Man: Well, why didn't you mention this before?

Sami: Because you didn't even give me a chance. Look, when I was walking by, I saw that there was a gun in there. You know, any kid could have gotten his hands on it.

Lucas: All right, do you really want to know? Yeah, yeah, I have used this piece a few times.

Kate: When? Oh, god, lucas, I told you that working for tony would lead to no good. You have to get rid of that now.

Lucas: I once shot a man because he tried to kill you. Franco kelly -- do you remember that? If I were you, I'd be grateful your son knows his way around a firearm, or else you'd be dead by now.

Roman: Yeah, all right, bo, what do you got? Damn it. No, john's still questioning tony. I'm waiting for him to check in. I absolutely agree with you. Yeah. No, I think tony's our man.

Tony: What, no response? Imagine. Still deafened by your bellowing, I suppose.

John: Well, I got the number. Now let's see where that phone call was placed from.

Tony: I'm so happy for you. Get a warrant. Oh, as a matter of fact, you're not part of the police force, are you? Out of the goodness of my heart, let me show you.

John: Ha ha ha. Operator assistance, huh? You lousy bastard.

Tony: You realize this is taking up very important time where I could be helping my sister find her husband.

John: Yeah, your sister. You know, I don't know why she buys into this "concerned brother" act. Oh, what am I talking about? I almost bought into it myself, didn't I?

Tony: As a matter of fact, I I was just speaking to my man bart. He informed me that a number of employees are out there searching for abe as we speak, or shout, as the case may be.

John: Searching for abe? Searching to kill him, maybe. You lousy son of a bitch.

Tony: Mm.

Lexie: Mom, what is it? What's wrong? What happened?

Abe: [ Gasping ]

Big splash can make you pretty hungry.

Belle: Someday, no matter where we are or what we're doing, promise me we're going to come back here.

Shawn-d: To salem?

Belle: Right here -- st. Luke'S. I think we should get married here.

Shawn-d: Well, I always figured we would. We've made our baptism here, we've always come here... okay, yes, yes, I have given this some thought.

Belle: Good. Hey, what's that? Looks like a hope chest just like my grandmother'S. I never had one, but I always thought the idea was kind of cool. Do you think anyone will mind if I take a look inside?

Shawn-d: Well, they left it here, didn't they?

Belle: Ha ha. Oh, myodod, shawn. Is that what I think it is?

Cassie: Philip --

Philip: Ca--

Cassie: I am -- I'm so sorry. I'm sorry.

Philip: It's okay.

Cassie: Well, you better take your shirt off. Look, let me wash it out before it stains. It's the least thing that I could do.

Philip: All right.

Cassie: You do the tie. I'll get the buttons.

Philip: Here.

Cassie: [ Thinking ] Hello, cassie. This fine-looking man is your brother.

Philip: I feel a little sacrilegious, taking my shirt off in church, you know?

Cassie: Well, the thing that I keep hearing about god is that he's very forgiving. I mean, it was sin that made us ashamed of our bodies in the first place, right? The way that I see it, it's -- it's natural to be naked. But, h,, if you feel self-conscious being the only one with your shirt off...

Philip: No, no, no, cassie. No, no, no, no. That's quite all right.

Cassie: I'll take care of this.

Philip: Please hurry, okay?

Cassie: Hmm, yeah. Later.

Mimi: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to insult you or sound snippy, especially here.

Rex: Why? It's just a building, like any other. And besides, it's your prerogative to disagree with what I have to say.

Mimi: Yeah, but you're ssusure you're right.

Rex: So are you.

Mimi: Look, I don't want us to believe two completely different things about something so important. And by the way, my beliefs have nothing to do with what I think.

Rex: Just blind faith, huh?

Mimi: Yeah, what's wrong with that? When you were a kid, you didn't have anyone to teach you what that meant, to live by faith. But we're alone here now. We have this whole chapel to ourselves, and I want you to know. I want to show you.

Brady: Hey, granddad? I'm sorry about before. I know you told me not to go after nicole, but I did, and I couldn't find her.

Victor: I told you not toononcern youelf with my wife, brady. Nico certainly has the situation under control.

Nicole: It's not your job to manhandle me, nico. You're not my husbd.D.

Nico: It's my job to be owning a gun, not yours.

Nicole: Yeah? Well, it's about time I took care of my own destiny. Nt to save mymaple pecan danish

Jennifer: What is this place?

Tommy: It's an, uh, it's an old acid plant.

Jennifer: Sure looks abandoned.

Tommy: Yeah, forever.

Jack: Except as somebody's base of operations. I get the picture -- nonot a very pretty one.

Tommy: Darkside said he'd meet you on level 3.

Jennifer: So in other words, you're not coming in with us?

Tommy: Darkside isn't somebody you want to mess with, and I did once, so... adios, guys.

Jack: I hope you don't mean that literally. Well... seems like old times.

Jennifer: Yeah. We're going in together. Let's hope we come back out together.

Man: This lock has been tampered with. I'm going to need your statement.

Sami: What?

Man: Well, this is extremely serious. I have to report everything you just told me to the police.

Sami: No. You can'T.

Celeste: I'm fine, darling. Everything is fine.

Lexie: Then why are you crying?

Maggie: Look, I'll take theo and put him down for a nap, okay?

Celeste: Yes, thank you.

Maggie: All right.

Celeste: Okay, watch his head.

Maggie: There we go. And zack is next door, all zonked out.

Lexie: Thanks, maggie.

Maggie: Mm-hmm. All right.

Celeste: Oh, darling, it's nothing, you know? Just holding your son in my arms and remembering when you were first born, you know, before I lost you.

Lexie: Don't lie to me, mom. You were crying because of abe. You know. You've known all along. Something terrible has happened to him, hasn't it? Mom, tell me what's happened to my husband.

Belle: These are your grandparents, aren't they?

Shawn-d: Yeah. Look how young they are there.

Belle: And beautiful. This must be your grandmother's hope chest, but what is it doing here?

Shawn-d: Well, you want to use this to furnish your apartment with?

Belle: No, I just think it's funny that I inherit my grandmother's hope chest d d then we find this one here.

Shawn-d: Well, yeah, but my grandparents -- they're on the team that sponsors couples who are getting married. See, when it comes time for something borrowed, they get a gift out of here from a couple that is happy and has been together for a really long time. I don't know. It's a tradition that my grandmother told me about. But, you know, leaving this here -- it's like asking for a special blessing for the bride, the groom, and the family.

Belle: That's really nice.

Shawn-d: Yeah, yeah, and all this stuff -- it comes from friends and family who are married both before and after.

Belle: Shawn, look, it says it's a gift to st. Luke's from the brady and horton families. It's engraved with all the names of the couples who have been married here, and they use this at their weddings. Your whole family is on here -- your parents, my parents. My dad's not even a brady.

Shawn-d: Well, he's a honorary one.

Belle: So, if we continue the tradition, our names will be on here someday.

Shawn-d: Let's see this. You know, my mom has two sons. So she doesn't have anyone to pass down her dress to or her jewelry to, so I know that my mother is going to be so happy that you become her daughter.

Belle: I love youshshawn.

Shawn-d: I love you, too.

Belle: Hey, look.

Shawn-d: Whoa. Check that out. Well, hold on, you're not gonna --

Belle: Of course I am. We are -- right this minute.

Philip: Sister. Hi.

Mary margaret: Mr. Kiriakis. I understand you're a U.S. Marine. I was under the impression they had a dress code.

Philip: Oh, yes, ma'am -- sister.

Cassie: Well, it looks like you have an even stricter dress code. Look, I'm sorry. The only reason philip is baring flesh in god's house is because I spilled my punch on him. See, but he was very forgiving, and I just wanted to wash it out before it stained.

Mary margaret: I see. Well, god be with you, corporal.

Cassie: Is that really your rank? Or did she mean "corporeal"? Did you see the way she was looking at you? Poor deprived thing. No wonder why she's such a bitch.

Philip: Hey, cassie, maybe that's your problem. You know what? If it wasn't a sin to call someone a bitch in church -- look, F.Y.I. -- When I was a little kid, my mom worked all the time. When my dad got sick, sister mary margaret got me into an after-school basketball program, okay? And detention, too. She whipped my butt into shape.

Cassie: I bet she did.

P philip: The point is, she was a positive influence in my life, and she deserves your respect, okay?

Cassie: Okay, okay. You know what? It's just -- I've never had anybody do that for me before. It's just -- it's hard for me to imagine what that feels like.

Philip: I know, I know.

Cassie: I didn't mean to insult her. I just -- I've never seen you so defensive before, and I didn't like seeing her pick on you.

Philip: All right, so, where's my shirt?

Cassie: Um, actually, it's still stained. But it's wetter, so it's soaking in the sink. But, I, um, I difind something else that you could wear.

Philip: Where is it?

Cassie: You could totally pull this off.

Nico: May we fast-forward to the end of this standoff? This is an awkward position for both of us, and we both know you're not going to shoot me.

Nicole: How? You of all people, nico, should know that I'm a trigger-happy housewife who would gun down anyone who gets in my way.

Nico: On your way to where? How many murder raps can one rich, well-protected kiriakis afford? You're not a stupid woman. You don't want to take unnecessary risks, leave behind forensic evidence like that gun -- for the sake of ridding the world of people who are just doing their job and whose death would necessitate revenge?

Nice: If I had to kill you, I'd make sure this gun was untraceable.

Nico: [ Sighs ] Darn it. I guess you're not going to shoot me. Aah!

Nicole: Not yet. I'm going to make sure you don't follow me, either.

Nico: [ Groans ]

[ Engine rumbling ]

Brady: That's my jeep! Damn it! What the hell do you think you're doing? Evernotice how kids

The country wants to know. What does his victory do for those who wanted real debate and choice? Kevin newman will put that question to him. Special sit-down interview. Paul martin on tonight's global national from ottawa.

Belle: Isn't it beautiful?

Shawn-d: You're beautiful. You take my breath away.

Belle: I know what you mean.

Shawn-d: May I have this dance?

Jack: Look, maybe it would be better if you wait for me back at the church. Come on.

Jennifer: No, listen, I can't let you go in there by yourself. Well, what if this darkside person doesn't even know anything about what happened to abe?

Jack: Look, I owe it to abe to try.

Jennifer: Well, I'm not going to let you go in alone. We are partners in every way, remember?

Jack: Right. Absolutely.

Jennifer: I love you.

Jack: I love you.

Jennifer: Come on, let's go find abe.

Jack: Right.

Cassie: Yes.

Philip: You know what? Look at the time. I'm sorry, but I'll never be a choir boy, and you're going to have to give my regrets to abe and lexie if he ever makes it. Um, but I got to get back to the base, okay?

Cassie: Well, you still haven't told me your plan.

Philip: What plan?

Cassie: On how to break up belle and shawn.

Philip: Will you promise to stop asking me?

Cassie: Yes.

Philip: You'll just have to wait and see.

Cassie: Oh!

Philip: Have fun.

Cassie: Yeah, I will.

Mimi: There's a saying -- where two or more are gathered in his name, when we say the lord's prayer in church, we join our hands together. Until you've tried, how can you know you don't believe? I'm praying for you, rex. For us. "Our father who art in heaven --"

Rex: No, I can't do this.

Victor: What happened to you?

Nico: Your wife. She kneed me in the groin and got away. She took your grandson's jeep.

Victor: And brady?

Nico: He went after her on his motorcycle.

Victor: Well, I guess I won't be needing this anymore.

Nico: Do you think -- if nicole lays her guilty conscience on brady, he would be compelled to go to abe carver and name her as colin murphy's killer.

Victor: I wouldn't count on it.

Nicole: No one will ever have anything on me.

Brady: Nicole. Whatcha got there? And why are you going to throw it in the water?

Man: And why shouldn't I call the police?

Sami: It's not that I don't think that you should, it's that, well, do you really want to?

Lucas: For the zillionth time, I amotot quitting my job.

Kate: Lucas, listen to me.

Lucas: Mom --

Kate: I had to -- I thought I had to do things -- despicable things -- for tony's father. How many years have I been running away from my past, from stefano? Do you remember how we had to live? Even now, because of abe, I may lose roman forever.

Roman: Hey. How could abe cost us our relationship?

Celeste: I don't know, alexandra.

Lexie: Mom, you have to know something. It's abe, isn't it? That's why you're crying. Mom, tell me, tell me, please, what?

Celeste: Oh, darling. I'm afraid.

Lexie: What?

Celeste: Suddenly, I -- I feel abraham's presence.

Abe: [ Groaning ]

[ Beep ]

[ Cellular phone rings ]

Lexie: Oh, it wasn't working before. Maybe it's abe. Oh, my god, it is. It's abe. Hello? Abe? Honey, can you hear me? It's a bad connection. Abe, where are you? I can't hear you. It's a bad connection. Abe.

Tony: No, wait a minute, father. By the time john has a single clue of what's been done, it will never be undone.

Lexie: Abe, can you hear me? Abe.

John: What's going on?

Lexie: Hello?

Celeste: Abraham called, but the connection --

Lexie: Abe.

John: He hasn't said anything she didn't hear his voice? Lexie, may I?

Lexie: Oh, yeah.

John: Thanks.

Lexie: Outside. Right. Right.

John: Abraham, it's john black. Can you hear me? Abraham, is that you? It's john black. Abraham, can you hear me?

Sami: Belle, you are the prettiest bride that I have ever seen.

Shawn-d: You know, sami, you can sure say that again.

Brady: Nicole, get out of the marriage. And then find a man who can give you what you need.

Nicole: How about you?

Jennifer: No! Jack!

Lexie: I am so worried about abe. Abe.
