Belle: Oh, my God. Is that the tiger?
Shawn-D: It has to be.
Belle: He sounds ferocious. I hope he can't get out of the cage.
Shawn-D: Well, I'm pretty sure he's not going anywhere. You know, he's just probably feeling a little frisky.
Belle: Oh. Like someone else that I know?
Shawn-D: You know, okay, I really have to get out of these tights because these things are not so comfortable.
Belle: No. No, I like them. They're...such a turn-on.
Shawn-D: Oh, really?
Belle: Ha ha ha.
Shawn-D: Well, in that case...[Growls]
Bonnie: Aah! Aah!
Mimi: Mom, are you okay?
Bonnie: Thirty-six hours of hard labor and a C-section, and this is the thanks I get? Oh! Oh! Oh, help!
Rex: That's quite an arm you got there, Meems.
Mimi: Ah, I get it from my mom.
Bonnie: Whose idea was it to have a dunk tank in January?
Bonnie: Wh-why didn't somebody try to just talk me out of it? I'm turning into an icicle here. Oh, my God, a blind icicle! My contacts are gone!
Rex: Are you sure?
Bonnie: Yes! Yes! I can't see!
Mickey: Bonnie, Bonnie, don't tell me you volunteered for that dunk tank.
Bonnie: Mickey, is that you?
Mimi: Aah! Mom!
Mickey: No, here!
Bonnie: Oh, oh, Mickey, please help get me warm. I'm freezing --
Mickey: Oh, you're shivering to death.
Bonnie: I hear that body heat works really well.
Mickey: Well, listen, I got a better idea. You come with me, we'll get you out of those wet clothes.
Bonnie: Oh, okay, well, I can feel the heat already. Hey, Meems, why don't you fish my contacts out of that tank, will ya?
Doug: Abby, I'm not kidding now. Do not go close to that cage. The tiger can reach out quite far between the bars. Okay?
Doug: Oh, it's too bad Lexie had to stay at the hospital.
Jennifer: Well, she told me she would be here as soon as she could.
Hope: You know you don't have to be, right?
Julie: Of course. If you want to go home, we all understand, Jennifer.
Jennifer: You know, I-I appreciate your concern, but I'm going to be pregnant for the next several months, God willing, and I am not about to let it turn me into an invalid. Besides, being an expectant mother is one of the most joyous moments in a woman's life, right?
Julie: Strange. I've never known Horton to be so restless before.
Doug: Oh, that's stage fright, sweetie pie.
Julie: Oh, I hardly think so. This guy is a born entertainer. Just you wait. He's going to eat up all the attention.
Doug: Ha ha ha. Very funny. But seriously, I can't wait for you and everyone here to see the big surprise that we have in store for you.
Julie: It's going to top them all.
[Distant cheers and applause]
Celeste: [Gasps] Dear God... something is happening.
Tony: Something is always happening in Salem.
Celeste: You're going to die. And your secret is going to go to the grave with you, Anthony.
Tony: Oh, Celeste, I know you're given to only the most dire prophecies, but come now.
Celeste: How can you scoff when the same thing happened to Maggie and to Cassíe and Caroline? You crave the public spotlight. Oh, yes. Every eye trained on crafty you as you reveal the killer's identity. Well, what if you don't get that chance? Come on, Anthony, don't wait. Tell me now who the killer is.
Tony: Thought you'd never ask. And I'm only too happy to tell you.
Marlena: No. No, please -- leave me alone! Aah! [Gasps] Oh, John.
John: Doc, wait.
Marlena: No, no.
Kate: Sami, if you're going to kill me, just go ahead and do it. Get it over with.
Sami: Shut up. I'm concentrating. And I am not going to miss this time.
Kate: Help! Somebody help me!
Brady: Your mom's being a good sport. This is better than "fear factor."
Philip: I just can't believe she's letting Sami throw knives at her, even if they are fake.
Victor: I told you to stay at home.
Nicole: If you're planning to publicly accuse me of murder, I'm sure as hell going to be here to point the finger where it belongs.
Victor: Don't say I didn't try to warn you.
Lucas: I don't know what you're up to, Sami, but when I get outta here, you're going to be real sorry.
[Circus music playing]
Marlena: I didn't know that Sami was in the circus.
Hope: Wasn't Lucas supposed to be the knife thrower in this act?
John: No, this doesn't seem like such a good idea.
Jennifer: The knives aren't real. They couldn't be.
Kate: [Gasps] Aah!
Kate: Oh, my God. I'm bleeding.
Sami: Oh, shut up. It's just a scratch. No one can even see it. You know, maybe I should move closer, give the fans what they're asking for. Now I can't miss.
John: We ought to put a stop to this before it gets out of hand.
Marlena: John, they're just rubber knives. Sami's doing it for charity. Why do you always read something evil into everything she does?
John: Now, isn't that what you've been doing to me?
Mimi: Hey, Shawn, have you seen... Belle? I guess you have. Never mind.
Belle: No, it's okay, Mimi. What's up?
Mimi: Oh, I just thought I'd let you know that your sister’s throwing daggers at Kate.
Belle: So, what else is new?
Mimi: No, I mean real daggers. At least I think they're real.
Shawn-D: You're kidding, right?
Mimi: No, see for yourselves.
Will: Jeez, Dad, were you the one in there this whole time?
Lucas: Hey, bud, I gotta go. Here.
Lucas: Oh, my God, she's going to kill Mom. Someone's gotta stop her.
Tony: I'm sorry, Celeste, who did you say was going to die?
Celeste: Oh, good lord.
Tony: I think fate's about to take an unexpected turn.
Kate: For God's sakes just do it. Just go ahead and put me out of my misery.
Sami: You asked for it.
Lucas: Drop the knife, Sami.
[Cheers and applause]
Belle: Wow. Kate and Sami must've buried the hatchet for Kate to let Sami do that.
Shawn-D: Yeah, that looked so real.
Rex: That was too real.
[Cheers and applause]
Marlena: What is it now -- evidence?
John: Well, I'd say so, seeing how this knife is real.
John: You can't fight me! You're going to die! It's time to die.
Celeste: You said the killer is a woman. Is it Samantha?
Tony: You haven't asked me until this moment because you're afraid to know. Because to know is to die.
Celeste: Just tell me who it is.
Tony: Is that what you want, Celeste -- to hear the truth and expose yourself alone before I tell everyone else?
Hope: Ruiz, take it easy.
John: Everybody, just stay cool.
Sami: You want to try that again, Lucas? You're pretty good with that whip. Maybe you could join our act. First, let's see if you can stop the knife that is coming right at your face.
Lucas: I cannot believe you're doing this. You've completely lost it, Sami.
Belle: I think Sami really was trying to kill Kate.
Mimi: I thought those knives looked real.
Rex: What the hell --
Shawn-D: Well, it's finally happened. She's finally cracked up.
Mickey: Wait. Here, here. Bonnie, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. That's -- that's the only thing I could find that would -- that would fit you, honey. Yeah.
Bonnie: At least I'm nice and dry.
Mickey: Mimi couldn't find the contacts, is that it?
Bonnie: Oh, no, I'm afraid they're goners. On the bright side, I can't see how ridiculous I look. But on the not-so-bright side, everyone else can.
Mickey: Yeah. Well, you look fine. Not many women can pull off a clown suit, but somehow, you make it work. You make it work.
Bonnie: Thanks. You say the sweetest things. Oh. Ha ha ha. There you are.
John: Samantha. What are you doing? Just calm down. Calm down. Everything's all right. Just calm down.
Sami: You are the one I should be throwing this knife at. It is because of you and Kate that my father is dead. You should know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of a cold, sharp blade -- at the mercy of a psychopath who strikes you down for no reason. Except I have a reason, a very good one.
Marlena: No, Sami, you don’t. You don’t. You don't want to hurt anybody, sweetie. You don't want to kill anybody. Not Lucas, not Kate. Especially not John -- a man who loved you and cared for you since you were a very little girl. Honey. Honey. He was your dad, too, and I know deep down that you love him and care for him so much.
Kate: Oh, God. Oh, God.
Sami: I wanted to scare them. I wanted them to know how it felt -- how Daddy must've felt. You say you loved my father. And you play the part of a grieving widow. You said you couldn't live without him, but... when push came to shove, you begged for your life. But it doesn't matter. You are never going to be reunited with my daddy because he is in heaven and you are going to rot in hell, Kate.
Marlena: Oh, Sami, Sami.
Sami: It's true. Out of all of us, Daddy was... Daddy was the best man, and -- and, Mom, he didn't deserve what he got. He didn't deserve to die.
Marlena: I've got you.
Nicole: Damn, girl, you should've gone for it when you had the chance.
Victor: Shut up.
Nicole: You can bet I won't make that mistake. And when my time comes, I promise you, I will show my victims no mercy.
Hope: It's okay, Ruiz. We can handle it from here. Thanks.
Lucas: No, I'll handle this. I've had it with this psycho. She's threatened my mom for the last time. You hear me, Sami? I'm not buying your crocodile tears. I mean it! You will pay for this! You're not going to get away with it.
Kate: Stop! Stop. Stop. Leave her be.
Kate: Leave her be.
Julie: Well, talk about a show-stopper. Do you think Salem can handle what we have planned next?
Jennifer: Poor Sami. She -- she really needs some help.
Hope: Yeah, well, she should've gotten help years ago. I can't believe Marlena never insisted upon it.
Jennifer: I know, considering she's a psychiatrist. But I guess when it's your own child, you -- you want to believe the best, no matter what.
Julie: I've stalled Grandma as long as I possibly can. Don't you think it's about time we started?
Hope: You know what? Let's do it. I think it's about time. I think we need to pick things up here. Dad?
Alice: Oh, no...
Abby: Greatgran, you're going to spoil your appetite.
Alice: Well, that's my prerogative, at least one day in the year. Ha ha ha.
Bonnie: There we go.
Mickey: Okay, hey, thanks for your help, Bonnie. I really appreciate that. Ha ha ha.
Bonnie: You know it's always my pleasure to help you, Mick, any way I can.
Mickey: Oh, that's very kind of you.
Bonnie: Besides, this cake's the only thing putting out any heat around here.
Sami: Mom, I'm...sorry. I don't know what happened.
Marlena: Honey, honey, honey, I know, I know, come on. I'm taking you out of here. Let's go. Gotcha. Watch your step.
Celeste: Now what's going on?
Doug: Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls of all ages! May I have your attention, please? The lights have just dimmed in honor of a very special person -- a lady who brings light into the darkness every single day. Now we invite you to join us as we sing a heartfelt happy birthday to the founder of the Horton foundation -- the one, the only, the reason we're here today -- Mrs. Alice Horton!
[Cheers and applause]
Abby: Are you surprised, Greatgran?
All [Singing]: Happy birthday, to you. Happy birthday, to you. Happy birthday, dear Alice. Happy birthday, to you.
Alice: And I thought you'd all forgotten!
[Cheers and applause]
Mickey: Are you sure you don't want me to push this? You can't see very well, remember?
Bonnie: If you could just guide me... lord knows, if I trip with this thing, we're going to have a three-alarm fire on our hands.
Mickey: I've got you now. You're doing great. All right, yeah, here we go.
Shawn-D: Who's that clown bringing in Gran's cake?
Philip: I don't know, man. Clowns really creep me out. The jugglers, too.
Belle: For me, it's magicians, and that one is no exception.
Tony: You got to be patient, Celeste. Only a short time to wait, and all will be revealed.
Celeste: That man... the magician.
Celeste: You insist that the killer is a woman, but...why am I getting the feeling that he'll play a really crucial part here today?
Marlena: Sami, I -- honey, I know you're angry. I know you're -- you're furious. But not at -- not at Kate, Lucas, or even John. Honey, you're angry at the person who killed Daddy, for taking him away from us forever.
Sami: And it really will be forever, won't it? At least for me.
Marlena: Why do you say that?
Sami: Because I haven't been a very good person. I said that Kate was going to rot in hell, but I probably will, too, and -- and I'll never be able to see anyone I love ever again.
Marlena: Oh... Sami, Sami. You know what? It's just never, ever, ever too late to change.
Sami: It is for me. I'm not like you or... Daddy or Grandma or Eric and Belle. I'm a bad seed, and I always will be.
Marlena: Sami, you know that's not true. And you know this destructive behavior of yours doesn't hurt anybody as much as it hurts you.
Sami: I bet people are telling you that you're being self-destructive now, too.
Sami: Because you left John after Daddy died. Mom, don't listen to them. It's the smartest thing you could've done.
Marlena: Sami --
Sami: Mom, you know it's true. Celeste and Abe and Grandma predicted that John was going to kill you. That's why you made him leave.
Marlena: Sami, that's not why John and I are apart.
Sami: Okay, all right, Mom, I'm sorry. Fine. Just please don't take him back. Please stay strong. If not for yourself, then do it for me. Because I need you so much, Mom -- more now than ever. And -- and I really just don't know what would happen if I lost you. Mom -- Mommy, please don't let him hurt you. I-I...
Marlena: My sweet girl... oh, Sami...
Sami: [Sobs] Mommy.
Nicole: My, what big teeth you have.
Brady: He's something, isn't he?
Nicole: Yeah, you got to wonder why they named him Horton.
Brady: He does look pretty fierce. But I'm willing to bet that, underneath, he's really gentle. He just wants to come out and play, have some fun, don't you?
Nicole: Yeah. Right. Fun.
Julie: You see, Grandma, even Horton sends you best wishes on your special day.
Alice: Every day is special.
Jennifer: We love you so much, and you are -- you are just an inspiration to all of us. Really, and we have seen you go through so much in your life -- good and bad. But no matter what, your faith has never wavered. And you taught us that trusting and believing in God and the people you love will get us through anything. And you know what? You didn't -- you never told us how to live. You didn't tell us. You showed us in your life. And you still show us every day. Thank you.
Mickey: You know, Mom, uh, Maggie started -- started planning this day, well, a year ago. She even wrote down here a note she wanted to say to you. She said, "our dear Alice, today we celebrate your birthday along with that spirit that will live on forever in all of us -- all of us who love you. Would that we could -- could all be more like you, what a much, much better place this world would be."
Julie: Grandma's speechless. How often does that happen? Ha ha ha ha!
Jennifer: Gram, listen, we're right here. We're right here with you. It's okay. It's all right.
Julie: Hope, darling. Is something wrong with Grandma? What's the matter?
Hope: This has been going on for a while. Grandpa comes to her in visions, and sometimes, well, she feels like it's a warning.
Julie: Warning? Of what?
Hope: That someone's going to die.
Alice: Tom... Tom, what is it? What are you trying to tell me, dear?
Bonnie: Ooh. Ooh. Mickey. Did you just see what I saw?
Mickey: Don't tell me you're seeing my father's ghost, too.
Bonnie: No, no, I think I just saw something fall on the cake. Ooh, I hope it's not droppings from those circus birds.
Mickey: Oh, come on.
Julie: Who is that woman?
Mimi: Oh, my gosh, Belle, that's my mom.
Belle: What's going on over there?
Mimi: I don't think I want to know.
Alice: No, tom, this is supposed to be a happy day.
Julie: Oh, Grandma, it is a happy day. Tom's here to wish you a happy birthday. Because he loves you so much. You know he's always watching over you. We all know that. We all love you so much.
Celeste: Lord help us. Alice Horton is seeing her dead husband again. That's not a good sign.
Tony: Oh, Celeste, I'm not dying. Tom appeared to Alice, not to me. Maybe he did it because he's calling his own beloved wife back.
Hope: Excuse me, Gran. Yes.
John: I hate to interrupt the celebration, but I think we've got ourselves a situation here.
Lucas: Look, I know you promised Roman that you'd make an effort to Sami. I know that. But it's not helping anybody to let her get away with attempted murder.
Kate: Lucas, I was married to Roman for less than a day, and I know that it sounds silly, but I feel that it -- it changed me. It changed my heart... forever.
Lucas: What do you mean it changed your heart?
Kate: Sami did not try to kill me.
Lucas: She didn't? How do you know that?
Kate: Can you honestly look me in the eye and tell me that you think she did? No. I didn't think so.
Lucas: Yeah, well, it still doesn't give her the right to scare the hell out of you.
Kate: No, it doesn’t. No, it doesn't, but she just lost her father, and he meant the world to her. And she is out of her mind with grief. And I should be able to understand that, right?
Lucas: Yeah, I know. I mean, I-I know how I'd feel if something happened to you.
Kate: But I'm all right. Right? Oh, sweetie. And it's really wonderful that you were so concerned about me.
Lucas: I love you. Mom, you've been there for me my whole life. And you've sacrificed a lot for me. It's time for me to take care of you.
Hope: What situation? What are you talking about?
John: The magician you know, the one that's supposed to make Horton the tiger disappear? He's disappeared himself.
Shawn-D: Mom, is everything okay?
Bonnie: [Gagging] [Coughs] Eww, doesn't anybody know how to make a cake anymore? Even I could do better than this. Eww. Yuck!
Doug: I'm sorry. I... didn't see you. Oh, thanks for your help. I take it you're with the circus? Don't tell me you're a mime. Well, I love mimes, but... I've got to tell you, your outfit really shut me up there for a while. And you came from out of town, probably not aware of the awful time we've had here in Salem lately with some maniac who is just... dressed pretty much like -- well, never mind, doesn't matter. Hopefully, that's all behind us. And, uh, let's hope it's soon. Well, uh, thanks again for your help. Next time, I'll look where I'm going.
Celeste: Anthony, where were you?
Tony: I just had to take care of something before the big announcement, but don't worry. Nobody saw me.
Celeste: Well, that's not what I'm worried about. I overheard people talking. It seems that magician -- you know, the one I had the strange vibration about -- has disappeared without a trace.
Tony: Really? Hmm. That's very interesting.
Julie: Oh, my goodness, Horton. Maybe you do have stage fright. Sweetie, don't worry. You're going to steal the show! Knock 'em dead!
Nicole: That lady has no idea what she's dealing with.
Victor: Baring trade secrets?
Nicole: Damn it, Victor.
Victor: Ha ha ha. A little on edge today, are we, huh? Well, not to worry, my dear. It'll all be over soon... soon as Tony feeds you to the lions, or should I say tiger? No more lies, no more running, and definitely no more Brady.
John: I don't know, hope. I don't feel good about this.
Hope: Something's not right. He's supposed to go on in what? Oh, my gosh, just a few minutes.
Brady: Dad? You looking for someone?
John: Yeah. The magician's disappeared.
Brady: Well, isn't that part of his act?
Hope: Just hope no one else disappears, okay?
Philip: Let me get this straight, bro. Sami actually locked you inside a port-a-potty?
Lucas: Yeah, that's right. I thought I was going to die in there. It's not funny, man. The worst part about it is I didn't know. I didn't know what was going on between Mom and Sami. I was freaking out, man. That was the worst 10 minutes of my life.
Sami: I'm sorry about that, Lucas. And, um, Kate, I... apologize. I guess I lost my head.
Philip: Yeah, my mother nearly lost hers. Man, how can you even let this woman near your kid? She's insane. And how can you possibly be Belle's sister?
Sami: I don't know. [Sobbing]
Lucas: Thanks a lot, bro. Sami, wait.
Philip: W-- did I miss something here, or is he just as crazy as she is?
Mimi: This is turning in to be one very weird day.
Shawn-D: You mean like every other day in Salem?
Belle: Did you hear that noise?
Rex: Sounded like it came from over there.
Shawn-D: Oh, my God.
Julie: Uh, ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please? There's, uh, been a slight change in your program. The magician who was scheduled to perform for you is a tad indisposed.
Tony: But the show will go on, ladies and gentlemen, with more thrills and chills than any of you could have ever imagined.
[Cheers and applause]
John: Damn it, how the hell'd you get in here?
John: I'm warning you, DiMera, not a word. You keep your mouth shut, you understand me?
Hope: Wait a minute. That outfit belongs to the missing magician.
Shawn-D: Somebody call an ambulance!
Belle: He's been hurt! Someone help!
Tony: Ha. Hmm...
John: Kids, where are you?
Belle: Dad, thank God.
Mimi: Down here.
John: Hope, that's him. That's our magician.
Rex: We found him like this.
Shawn-D: Yeah, he's unconscious.
Hope: Paramedics are right outside. They're on standby. I'll be right back.
John: All right, hang tight, guys.
Marlena: I'm a doctor. I can help.
John: DiMera, what'd you do to him? What did you do to that magician?
Tony: What are you talking about?
John: We just found him unconscious.
Tony: Oh, here we go again -- being unjustly accused. I had nothing to do with that gentleman's unfortunate accident.
Celeste: It's happening.
John: So you really expect me to buy that, huh?
Tony: I saw an opportunity and I took it. And nobody's going to stop me from telling the truth. Because the Salem serial killer's reign of terror ends right now.
Sami: Lucas, this is it. We're finally going to know the identity of my dad's killer.
Bonnie: Who is that?
Mickey: Tony -- Tony DiMera.
Bonnie: Oh! Ha ha. Aren't you glad I talked you into taking his case? What I don't get, though, is if he knew the truth all along, why the heck didn't he just say so from the start?
John: How is he?
Marlena: He sustained a serious blow to the head. He hasn't regained consciousness, but I think he's going to make it.
Man: Dr. Evans?
Marlena: Yes, yes, I'm coming.
John: What in God's name would drive you to do something like this? What do you have to gain by all this, anyway?
Tony: What are you so afraid of, John? Why don't you want the truth to be known? Surely there must be a reason why you are so opposed to hearing the killer's name.
Sami: I know why. Because John is the killer, and now everyone is going to know it. Are you ready, boots?
Tony: And I would advise you and Salem’s so-called finest to focus your pathetic energies on making sure that the killer does not escape, because the person you're searching for is here. Ladies and gentlemen, this is going to be the Salem stalker's last hurrah!
Hope: Not so fast. Tony...
Celeste: Anthony’s right. The killer is here.
Julie: This is not what I had in mind for the grand finale.
Doug: No, but if Tony can pull this off and name the real killer, it'll be the greatest feat the big top has ever seen.
Rex: If Tony’s innocent and he really does know the truth, he could be the one having his last hurrah.
Sami: Well, I've had enough. Spit it out, Tony. Just tell us who the killer is.
Lucas: Calm down. Don't get yourself all worked up, Sami.
Sami: You thought I was crazy before, you just wait. When I find out who the killer is, I will kill them. For real this time.
Brady: You two haven't seen Victor or Nicole, have you?
Philip: Um, no, come to think of it. I don't know where they could be.
Brady: I'm gonna find out.
Hope: Tony, you've been telling everyone who will listen to your theory about the killer being a woman. Now you're going to name her. So is this name a theory, or do you actually have proof?
Tony: Do you think I would have gone to so much trouble for a wild guess? Oh, no, I'm certain. And so will you be -- and the good people of Salem -- when you hear my evidence. Now, without further hesitation. Let the drum roll!
John: For God's sakes.
Man: Where'd I put those damn keys?
Tony: Do you want a name?
Tony: Are you ready to hear it?
Tony: The shocking truth after months of misery and heartache and terror?
Tony: Then you shall have it, my friends. The name of the Salem Stalker...
“Next on Days Of Our Lives”
Hope: Announcing the killer, you're putting yourself at tremendous risk.
Tony: Nothing is going to stop me from revealing the killer's name to the good people of Salem.
Sami: You can't go because I love you!
Belle: I know that Celeste’s premonition would never come true, but --
Shawn-D: Your father would never hurt your mother!
