[Air hissing]

Shawn-D: Ahh!

[Turns valve off]

Shawn-D: Ahh! Man, it is so hot in here. It's like we're at the beach.

Belle: Try the nude beach. If you hadn't fixed that valve, I was gonna start stripping. Thanks for fixing it.

Shawn-D: You know what? I have a good idea. I'm gonna open that valve up, because getting naked sounds great to me.

Belle: Oh, stop it!

Shawn-D: Stop what?

Belle: Shawn, stop!

Shawn-D: I know, it's ticklish. What the --

Woman: Salem's university hospital.

Belle: I think you're lying on the remote.

Shawn-D: Where is it? Yeah.

Woman: Count Anthony DiMera is fighting for his life. Earlier tonight, count DiMera took over at centre ring at the circus fundraiser benefiting the tom and Alice Horton foundation, and channel 4 was on the scene. The following scenes will shock you. Please be advised, it's not suitable for children. Roll tape.

[Crowd screaming]

W woman: Apparently, a bucket of blood was dumped on count DiMera, and the tiger attacked him.

Belle: Oh, my God.

[Tiger roars, Tony screaming]

Shawn-D: They're gonna show this?

Mimi: One of these days, I'm going to cook for you, I promise. Just because my mom is the world's worst cook doesn't mean I have to be. Rex, honey?

Rex: I want to see the news.

Woman: Spectators at the circus -- mothers and fathers of small children -- were terrified as the tiger dragged count DiMera off the stage.

[Crowd screaming]

Woman: I've just been informed by police department officials that count DiMera is in critical but stable condition, and they are hopeful he will be able to identify the Salem stalker soon.

Mimi: Um, maybe we should turn this off.

Rex: No!

Woman: More breaking news now. Count Anthony DiMera has gone into cardiac arrest. I repeat, Count Anthony DiMera, after being mauled by a tiger, has gone into cardiac arrest.

Rex: I did this. This is my fault.

Belle: Shawn, if Tony dies, that could mean --

Shawn-D: I know. I know. The killer will be free to kill again.

Belle: And one of us could be her next victim.

 [Monitor beeping]

Lexie: You can't die, Tony, please. Please, stay with us, okay? Oh, thank God. He's stabilized.

John: What the hell is going on? I thought you said he was gonna be okay.

Lexie: I'm not sure what happened, John. His injuries are extensive, but his heart was strong. He was in no danger of cardiac arrest. It's as if something suddenly agitated him.

Celeste: The killer.

Victor: Something must have just happened. What did you do?

Nicole: Nothing.

Victor: Like hell. Our lethal locker room Lolita must have struck again.

Brady: Granddad --

Victor: She's a killer, Brady. How many times do I have to say it before you believe me?

Nicole: Tony, I know I have done some bad things, but I swear to you, I am not the Salem stalker. Victor is setting me up.

Nicole: Sorry, you just -- you just startled me there. Look, I just want to know one more thing, and then I will get out of your way. Who is the killer, tony, the real killer?

[Monitor beeping loudly]

Tony: [Grunting]

Nicole: I didn't have anything to do with what happened to Tony, including his damn relapse.

John: Tony, it's John. I don't know how much time you got, but whatever's left, tell us who the killer is.

Marlena: Of course, this isn't going to be half as much fun as watching Horton the tiger take you apart. Ha ha ha ha. But... I'm sorry, it will be lethal. Ahh... yeah. You see, Tony, this drug that I'm about to put into your I.V. will slowly but surely paralyze your body, and it's going to be... excruciatingly painful.

[Monitor beeping loudly]

John: Damn it, we're losing him.

Lexie: Nothing's working.

John: He cannot die without giving us a name. Isn't there something you can do?

Lexie: There could be something. It won't save him, but it could buy us the time we need to get the answers we need.

Celeste: Hurry, Alexandra. I can feel Tony slipping away, darling.

Lexie: Tony, may I administer this shot of adrenaline to your heart? It'll give you time to name the killer.

John: Is it a go?

Lexie: Yeah. Tony, John and I are here with you. It's all right. You're safe, okay? Just tell us.

John: Who's the killer, Tony?  Yeah, Marlena's here with us.

Lexie: Tony, please, please, try to focus, okay? For the good of everyone in Salem.

Marlena: This phoenix has risen before, but it's never, ever going to rise again.

John: We're all listening. Go ahead.

Lexie: Tony, please, please tell us.

John: Who is the Salem stalker?

Tony: Ahh... ahh...

Belle: Tony has to name the killer, Shawn. It's the only chance my parents have of getting back together. It's the only chance any of us have.

Shawn-D: Hey, they're gonna work things out.

Belle: But what about Celeste’s prediction? The prophecy was that my dad was going to kill my mom. I'm sure that made a lot of people think that my dad was the killer. Even your dad thought my dad was a suspect.

Shawn-D: It's my dad's job to investigate every lead.

Belle: I know. But until the real killer is caught, my dad is going to be a suspect in a lot of people's minds, especially my mom's mind.

Shawn-D: She loves your father.

Belle: She's afraid of him, Shawn. I can see it in her eyes whenever he's around. She's afraid to let him get close.

Shawn-D: Okay. All right, look, before Tony was attacked, he said that the killer was a woman, so that rules your father out. So hopefully now Tony will get better, he'll I.D. the killer, and the cops will be able to catch her before she's able to harm anyone else, okay?

Belle: Well, when they do catch her, I'm gonna make sure she suffers for what she's done to my family.

John: Give us a name. Tell us who the serial killer is.

Tony: [Thinking] John, it's your wife Marlena.

John: Why can't he talk?

Lexie: I don't know. The adrenaline should work instantaneously. I'm not sure what's wrong. It's as if his body is undergoing paralysis.

Marlena: Ha ha ha ha. But... I'm sorry, it will be lethal. Yeah. You see, Tony, this drug that I'm about to put into your I.V. will slowly but surely paralyze your body, and it's going to be... excruciatingly painful.

Tony: [Coughs and wheezes]

Marlena: You see, this drug, Tony, is going to collapse your lungs and stop your heart, but... you'll have enough blood and oxygen in your brain so you know every second that you are in the process of dying. Pretty creative, huh? Ha ha ha ha.

Lexie: Tony, blink if you can hear me.

Tony: [Thinking] Marlena's the killer. She gave me a drug to paralyze me.

Celeste: Alexandra, may I try?

Lexie: Yeah, it's okay with me. John?

John: If you think it'll get him to talk.

Celeste: Anthony, find your centre of power. Shut your mind to all other thoughts, darling, and let your strength take hold.  If it's not possible for you to speak, please find some other way to give us a sign.

Tony: [Thinking] How can I show them that Marlena's the killer?

Celeste: Concentrate, Anthony. Summon your energy, darling. Please. Give us a sign.

Mimi: Do -- the news reporter said he's still alive. Do you want to go to the hospital to see him?

Rex: Tony's dying, Mimi. It's too late for me to make it up to him.

Mimi: He loved you like a dad, Rex. He still loves you. Let's just get our coats, and we'll go to the hospital.

Rex: Damn it, did you hear me? I said no.

Nicole: You don't know what the hell you're talking about, Victor. What else is new? I came to the hospital, yes. But I didn't go anywhere near Tony.

Victor: You didn't go into his room, try and kill him?

Nicole: No. I-I never got a chance to go in his room.

Victor: Then why did you come here at all?

Nicole: I was going to beg Tony to call the deal off with you. You know damn well he was going to name me as the Salem stalker. You put him up to it.

Brady: I don't believe this.

Victor: No need to editorialize, Brady. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to see to it that my wife doesn't disappear. I'm going to go see what I can find out about Tony’s condition, and you better be telling me the truth.

Nicole: You can't sit on the fence forever, Brady. Who are you going to believe -- him... or me?

 [Monitor beeping]

Marlena: Tony... it's Marlena. I'm right here. You're holding my hand. Was there something you wanted to say?

Tony: [Thinking] It's you. You're the killer. That's what I want to tell them. John, your precious doc is Salem’s serial killer.

Marlena: Lexie, I'm sorry. His grip is getting weaker.

Lexie: Tony, Tony, hold on. Hold on, please. Please, just hold on for me, okay? Okay, I want you to hold on.

[Monitor beeping loudly]

Lexie: [Gasps] Damn it. Everybody out -- now. Out.

John: Come on, Tony.

Lexie: Go. Out.

John: Doc, come on. Let them work.

Victor: What's going on? Is Tony dying?

John: Looks like we're losing him, Vic. He's taking the killer's identity right along with him.

Belle: Meems always used to say that she was jealous of me because I had this perfect life. I don't think it's perfect anymore.

Shawn-D: Every couple has their problems. We did.

Belle: Yeah, but... I just want my mom to wake up and realize that my dad's not her enemy.

Shawn-D: She's just scared because of what's been happening. She would never really risk losing what she has with your dad.

 [Monitor beeping loudly]

Marlena: Time of death... any minute now.

John: That's so strange... Tony grabbing Marlena's hand like that. I know he's always had a thing for my wife, but... still, I wonder what the hell was going through that man's mind.

Marlena: I can tell you exactly what Tony was thinking.

Brady: My grandfather confided in me before we left for the hospital.

Nicole: And what dirt did my loving husband give you?

Brady: He told me what you did.

Victor: Celeste, do you know what Tony’s state of mind was before he started slipping away?

Celeste: We were trying to get him to tell us who the killer is.

Victor: And did he?

Celeste: No. For some reason, he wasn't able to speak. All he was able to do was to grab Marlena's hand.

Marlena: It's a common phenomenon that people have right before they pass away. They have a memory of something in their past.

John: Yeah. You mean kind of like that, uh, life flashing before your eyes thing?

Marlena: That's exactly it.

John: Uh-huh.

Marlena: I mean, Tony’s known me for so many years, and I was in the room with him. It would make sense he would have some -- some memory of the feelings he used to have for me.

John: Aah, you're probably right, doc. You usually are.

Lexie: Tony.

Vince: Dr. Carver?

Lexie: Come on, Tony.

Vince: Dr. Carver?

Lexie: Come on.

Vince: Dr. Carver...

[Monitor flat lining]

Vince: Your brother's not responding.

Lexie: [Sobs] My brother... [Sobbing] Tony.  Time of death... 9:29 P.M.

Marlena: Oh. Oh, dear.

Lexie: I'm sorry. We did everything we could to save my brother, but he's dead. Tony's gone. [Sobs]

Tony: Damn you. You're not going to get away with this.

Mimi: Okay. I'll make you a deal. We won't go to the hospital to see Tony as long as you promise to stop blaming yourself for what happened to him.

Rex: If I had just trusted him.

Mimi: Rex, you're not the only one. We all thought he was guilty -- at least at first.

Rex: [Sighs]

Mimi: Rex... you have me, okay? You do not have to go through this awful thing all alone. I'm here, okay? I love you. I will always love you.

Rex: I love you, too, Mimi. Look, you're the only family I have left now.

Nicole: I am not the Salem stalker, Brady. I swear to God I'm not. Victor's trying to set me up.

Brady: Let me ask you something, Nicole -- if you could go back in time, would you erase your affair with Colin Murphy?

Nicole: Lousy blackmailing pig.

Brady: If you still had your $5 million, would you be with my grandfather?

Nicole: I had the money when he asked me to marry him, you know.

Brady: All things equal, would you still want to be Mrs. Victor Kiriakis?

Tony's voice: Celeste. Celeste.

Celeste: Uh, darling, would you mind if I went back to your office to rest for a while?

Lexie: No, that's fine.

Marlena: Lexie.

Lexie: I, uh... I've ordered an autopsy and a toxicology report.

Marlena: Why?

Lexie: I need more information about why my brother went into cardiac arrest.

Marlena: Well, he was mauled by a tiger. That would give anybody heart failure.

Lexie: It wasn't only his heart that failed. His organs were all shutting down. He became almost totally unresponsive, as if he was reacting to some sort of a deadly toxin.

John: Toxin? You mean that damn killer, whoever she is, poisoned Tony after he got here in the hospital?

Lexie: It's a possibility.

Victor: Nicole strikes again. I knew she was lying to me.

Marlena: It's hard to believe. It's -- it's so hard to believe.

Victor: She was here, all right.

Tony's voice: Celeste, over here.

Lexie: Anthony. [Gasping] I thought you were --

Tony: I am. Quite dead, I assure you.

Celeste: Oh, mon dieu.

Tony: The only reason I am appearing to you in this fashion is for one purpose only -- to stop the Salem stalker dead in her tracks before she strikes again. Now, you're going to help me.

Celeste: I...

Tony: Yes. You, Celeste, with my assistance -- you will bring this ruthless killer to her knees.

Belle: Did your mom call you back? Did she leave you a message?

Man: Pumping up the volume in 2004.

Man #2: We are getting married on national television.

Shawn-D: No.

Belle: Okay, well, maybe -- maybe that's a good thing. Maybe that means Tony’s going to be okay.

Shawn-D: Yeah, probably. You know, I've got an idea.

Belle: What's that?

Shawn-D: Well -- a pillow fight.

Belle: Oh, you're kidding me. Shawn, you are so toast.

Shawn-D: Oh, yeah? Oh, yeah? What do you got? What do you got, huh?

Belle: Ha ha ha ha.

Shawn-D: Oh, man.

Belle: Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha! Stop it! Ha ha ha ha!

Man: Ryan Seacrest on his new show and how he juggles...

Mimi and Rex: [Moaning]

Shawn-D: Since when does "extra" have an x-rated soundtrack?

Belle: Really.

Mimi and Rex: [Moaning]

Shawn-D: Oh, that is not what I think it is.

Belle: Mimi and Rex -- those two are like rabbits.

Shawn-D: Yeah, only louder.

Belle: Shawn, that's why I put the pillow over the vent.

Mimi: Rex, you are so hot.

Rex: Oh, Mimi, Mimi.

Man: New year, new shows, new stars -- this weekend on "extra."

Belle: Yes, Shawn. Yes. I'm ready. Make love to me.

Shawn-D: There's something we have to do first.

Belle: I love you, Shawn.

Shawn-D: I love you, Belle black.

Mimi and Rex: [Moaning]

Rex: Oh, yes.

Mimi: Oh!

Rex: Oh.

Belle: I cannot take this anymore!

Shawn-D: Neither can I.

Mimi: Rex?!

Rex: Oh.

[Cellular phone rings]

Rex: Oh. Oh.


Rex: Oh. Oh.

Shawn-D: Hello?

John: Shawn, John Black. I got the messages you and Belle left. I just want to check in and see if you kids are okay.

Shawn-D: We're fine. Where's my mom?

John: Aah, she's dealing with the investigation. How's my girl?

Shawn-D: She's okay. Listen, we were both wondering how DiMera's doing. Has he named the killer yet?

John: Yeah, about that... I'm afraid I got some bad news, kid.

Nicole: You want to know the truth... straight from my heart? If I could have what I really want, I would give up the Kiriakis name and the mansion and all the money and the clothes and all the rest of it.

Brady: Okay, I'll bite. What do you really want, Nicole?

Nicole: A man I can be myself with. A man like you.

Marlena: Honey. Hey, honey, come here.

Lexie: Oh.

Marlena: It is so unfair you have to bear all this sorrow -- losing your husband, losing your brother. Lexie, whatever you need, whatever you need, I'm right here.

Lexie: Thank you. Thank you.

Marlena: Lexie... if you ever want to talk, I'm right here for you.

Lexie: Thank you.

Marlena: Yeah.

Vince: Dr. Scully's ready for you in autopsy.

Lexie: Okay, thanks.

Marlena: Oh. A-are you sure you want to do that? I mean, Tony was your brother.

Lexie: Yeah. I need to satisfy myself as to the killer's methods. I want to know how she did it, how that monster murdered my brother. Excuse me.

Marlena: Yeah. Yeah.

Victor: Well, I wonder how this got here.

John: Doc.

Marlena: Hmm?

John: We need to talk.

Marlena: About what?

John: Tony's death.

Marlena: Oh. Well, what about it?

John: He's not going to be the last, you know. In fact, I think you know who the next victim's going to be.

Marlena: Is this some kind of a joke? 'Cause it's sounding a little sick to me.

John: No joke.

Marlena: What makes you think I would know who the next victim is?

John: 'Cause I'm remembering cases you used to work on with the police department, your experience as a criminal psychiatrist, and it hit me that you may be able to come up with a revised profile. I mean, Tony put it together and figured out who the killer was, and he's smart, but I figured between the two of us, we'd be able to duplicate his thinking, especially with your background.

Marlena: All righty, then. I'll get working on it.

John: Where are you going?

Marlena: To my office. That's where I work.

John: I remember. In fact, I-I've... been remembering a lot of things about you and me. I think we need to sit down and have a conversation at some point about us and our marriage.

Rex: Do you remember the first time we kissed?

Mimi: Underneath the mistletoe at the Hartley house holiday mixer. You smelled like cinnamon.

Rex: Wh-- I did?

Mimi: Yeah, your aftershave or something. But, like, cinnamon's my favorite spice, and your lips were my favorite lips after that kiss, and your chest was my favorite chest, and your abs, and if we keep going on, we're going to have to get all sweaty again. Want to?

Rex: Mm. Mm. You know, I remember the -- the snow that night. It was so pure and simple. A lot has changed since that night.

Mimi: Yeah, I'm definitely not as pure.

Rex: Yes, you are. Look, you have got the kindest, most loving heart. I'm the one who's changed. You know, I thought I was a DiMera, but I turned out to be a Brady. I was the richest kid in town, and now I've got nothing.

Mimi: Yeah, but who needs money if you've got me?

Rex: That's for sure.

Mimi: Besides, Rex, you have your whole life ahead of you.

Rex: We've got our whole lives ahead of us. Mm. You know what? Maybe I should go to the hospital and ask for Tony’s forgiveness.

Mimi: Aw, that's my guy.

Rex: You make me better than I am.

Mimi: Aw, that is the sweetest thing anyone's ever said to me.

Lexie: Send a sample of the tissue to the lab ASAP. It looks bruised.

Dr. Scully: The coloring's off, too.

Lexie: I noticed.

Vince: Dr. Carver?

Lexie: Yeah.

Vince: The initial labs, taken after count DiMera's first cardiac arrest, are in.

Lexie: Thank you.  Oh, God, no.

Celeste: I don't know what's happening, Anthony. A-a-are you really here? Am I actually talking to you?

Tony: For purpose of the situation, yes, I'm here. Now, are you going to help me?

Celeste: You expect too much. How am I supposed to stop the serial killer?

Tony: I'm not asking you to wrestle her to the ground, but you can expose her.

Celeste: No, no, no, no. I don't want to know who it is. Don't tell me. I don't want that responsibility. Besides, every person who figures out the killer's identity -- they end up murdered. No.

Tony: But you already know who the killer is. I don't have to tell you. All you have to do is connect the dots.

Celeste: No. No, Anthony, I'm sorry. I can’t. I'm sorry, but I just can't do it. 

Rex: Let me get my coat. Do you have your gloves, Mimi?

Mimi: Um...

Rex: All right.

Mimi: Oh, hey. We're about to go to the hospital to see Tony because Rex has some unfinished business.

Rex: Oh.

Belle: [Sobs]

Shawn-D: I'm sorry, Rex.

Mimi: Oh, my God, no.

Brady: I guess now it's my turn to be surprised. I'm sorry, Nicole.

Nicole: To hell with it. I mean, of course you don't know what to say. This is all so pointless. You don't believe me, you don't trust me, and you would never be with me in a million years, so what difference does it make? But the one thing that you can take to the bank, Brady, is that your grandfather is trying to railroad me into the record books right next to Jeffrey Dahmer.

Victor: You may make it into the record books yet, my dear. Tony DiMera's dead.

Nicole: He can’t. He's the only person who can clear me.

Victor: Clear you? What kind of acid are you on, my dear? You killed the man.

Nicole: I did not.

Victor: Oh, give it up, Nicole. You never were convincing as an innocent, even in those old movies of yours.

Nicole: You shut the hell up. You heard that. He's abusing me.

Victor: You lied to me. You told me you weren't in Tony’s room.

Nicole: I wasn’t.

Victor: Really? Then how did your hair clip find its way onto the floor of Tony’s cubicle?

Brady: You did lie to us.

Nicole: I, uh...

Brady: Were you in Tony’s room or not?

Nicole: Yes, okay? I lied. I was scared. He's trying to railroad me. I told you.

Brady: Nicole, you want me to trust you, so you lie to me?

Nicole: I was in Tony’s room, but I didn't kill him.

Brady: Oh, so you lied before, but now you're telling the truth?

Nicole: Yes. I didn't do it. I didn't! [Sobbing]

Victor: Well, at least this time, you didn't run after her. I hope that means you've learned your lesson.

Brady: She lied to me.

Victor: Ha ha. Welcome to the club.

John: Lexie's doing the autopsy. Oh, yeah, it's hard on her, but she's determined to find out exactly what killed her brother. So far? Well, so far, it looks like complications from the tiger attack. Yeah, you know I will. I'll keep you posted. Mm-hmm.

Lexie: John.

John: Hey, Lexie. You find anything?

Lexie: You could say that. You're not going to believe it.

Celeste: [Sobs]

Tony: You'll be all right, Celeste, and if I can say that to you in my current condition...

Celeste: But, Anthony, I don't want to die. I'm sorry. I know how selfish that sounds.

Tony: No more selfish than the rest of us.

Celeste: With Abraham’s passing, you see, I-I have to be here for Alexandra and my darling Theodore, my sweet angel child. He -- he needs his grandmère.

Tony: You're not going to die, Celeste, as long as you use the knowledge you already possess. As my great samurai teacher once said to me... reach inside and look within.

[Knock on door]

Celeste: [Gasps]

Marlena: Celeste, are you all right? I heard you talking. You sounded so upset.

Celeste: Yes. Yeah, I am.

Marlena: You want to talk about it?

Celeste: Listen, Marlena, if I were to tell you, you wouldn't believe me.

Marlena: I've heard some amazing stories in my office, too. There, come on. Come on.  Why don't you give me a try?

“Next on Days Of Our Lives”

Lucas: Oh, you know what? I'm not going to drop anything, not until you admit it. Admit that you love me.

Shawn-D: It's like the killer is a ghost or something.

Hope: She's very real.

Mimi: I wish I would have waited like you and Shawn.

Celeste: You mean the killer is someone on staff right here at this hospital?

John: That's a damn good bet.
