[Knock on door]

Sami: Hi.

Lucas: Hi.

Sami: You look nice. Um, come in.

Lucas: Thanks. Is will ready to go to my gram Alice’s for Doug’s wake?

Sami: Yeah, he's just finishing getting dressed. Um, isn't it a little late?

Lucas: Well, yeah. Formal visiting hours are over, but I want to take will there now -- spend some time with his great-grandma, be there for Julie.

Sami: Okay.

Lucas: You're not going to the wake like that, are you?

Sami: No.

Lucas: All right, well, hurry up and get changed. It's late as it is. Come on now.

Sami: I'm not going.

Julie: Gram. I don't know if I can stand another night like this -- seeing him lying there so stiff... knowing he'll never hold me in his arms again. Knowing that murderer is out there, free to walk the streets... free to kill again.

Marlena: John, how could you possibly believe that your wife is a cold-blooded killer?

John: I saw you.

Marlena: How do you know that it was me?

John: I saw your face when you turned to run from me in the graveyard. You killed Doug.

Marlena: But you didn't tell the police.

John: I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure.

Marlena: And?

John: I'm sure. You're the love of my life, Marlena, but you're a killer.

Julie: Doug was so loved.

Alice: Yes, he was, dear.

Julie: I thought it was very gratifying that so many people came by to pay their respects.

Alice: He touched a lot of lives here in Salem the years that he was here.

Julie: He touched them in more ways than one.

Alice: [Chuckles]

Julie: You know, I think a lot of people have forgotten -- certainly forgiven -- but when he first got here, he was a bit of a rascal.

Alice: Oh, he was a bit of a con man and a jailbird. But love tamed him - love for you, and love for your mother, and most of all, love for his child. He became completely a different man after Adie gave birth to hope.

Julie: Babies can do that. He was the proudest of fathers, and of course hope, she'll always be her daddy's little girl.

Hope: Daddy, daddy!

Doug: In here, hope.

Hope: Daddy, guess what.

Doug: Well, well, what brought on all this excitement here?

Hope: Lookit.

Doug: A dime? A whole dime? Wow, now you have a whole dime to put in with your penny collection.

Doug: Ah, this guy is getting fat and heavy. You want to count?

Hope: Yes. Daddy! Daddy?

Doug: Yes, sweetheart?

Hope: You said you'd help me.

Doug: Yeah, that's right, I did. So what is it we're gonna do?

Hope: Make a sandcastle.

Doug: Afraid I'm not very good at that. I've built a lot of castles in the air... and they all came tumbling down. Hi there, hope Williams. What's the matter with you? Cat got your tongue? She doesn't like me. Of course she likes you. Well, then why doesn't she say hello to me? Well, maybe she's just shy, Mr. Fuzzy-wuzz. Maybe the cat has got her tongue. No, hope's little kitten wouldn't do that. Well, I can't make her talk. Maybe I can. I'm her daddy, you know? Happy birthday, princess.

Hope: But I thought the party was my gift.

Julie: Well, we wanted you to have something special that you could keep to remind you of turning 18.

Hope: "December 29, 1983. Remember it and smile."

Doug: Oh, princess, I just can't believe this, that you're going off to start a new life all your own with your husband, with your new baby. I mean, it's just like -- it seems to me like it was yesterday when I was bringing you home with your mother.

Hope: Oh, dad, I wish I'd had the chance to meet her, get to know her better. But you know, in a funny sort of way, I feel like I do now that I've become a mom.

Doug: She loved you so much. You represented such wonderful things in our lives. I mean, your birth brought us close together. It gave us -- our lives a new meaning. It gave us a future. You really were our hope.

Hope: Oh, dad, I miss you so much already.

Doug: Yeah. We've been through this scene too many times to know it's not for good.

Hope: I know. You'd think that I would have been used to this by now, huh?

Doug: Oh, I don't think anybody ever gets used to saying goodbye to people they love.

Hope: And I do love you, dad. I love you so much. Just remember that, okay?

Doug: I love you more than anything.

Hope: Oh, dad...

Julie: Doug loved hope more than anything.

Alice: There was only one other person who had that kind of impact -- lasting impact -- on Doug’s life. That was you.

Sami: Lucas, I have had it up to here with death and funerals.

Lucas: Yeah, right, right, Sami, but this was Doug.

Sami: I understand that, okay? I just don't think I can handle going to another wake or a funeral.

Lucas: That's understandable, too, but come on, it's your family.

Sami: Look, especially after what my grandma said, okay? What if Celeste’s prediction still comes true? I don't want the next wake I go to to be my own mother’s.

Marlena: John, if you really believe that I am a serial killer, there's only one thing left to do.

John: What are you doing?

Marlena: I'm calling the police.

John: Just like that?

Marlena: If you believe I'm a killer, John, you've got to turn me in, have me arrested and sent to jail. Why don't you do it?

Man: Salem police department. How may I help you?

Marlena: Do it, John. Go ahead and do it.

Man: Salem police department. Is anyone there?

Marlena: If you don't, I will.

Man: Is anyone there? Hello? Can you say something? Salem police department here. Anyone there? Hello? Hello? Please, say something. I-I need --

Marlena: What is it? Are you having second thoughts, or do you still think that I'm a cold-blooded murderer?

Julie: You were always a free spirit, my love. So was I. We were alike in a lot of ways. I know I gave you and grandpa so much trouble when I was growing up. Remember when I got caught shoplifting?

Alice: I will never forget it.

Julie: [Laughing]

Alice: Oh... well, you had a rebellious side. Your parents were gone so much of the time, I think you just needed attention.

Julie: Oh...thank you, gram.

Alice: Ha ha.

Julie: Well, we do mellow a bit with age, I guess. But Doug and I were so alike that... only people so much alike could have fought so spectacularly. How long is your little lecture going to last, Doug?

Doug: Until I run out of breath. You are going to ruin everything if you keep on this way. You said that you wanted a family. You made sacrifices in order to keep the baby that you're carrying. You said that you wanted David to love you, and yet you're willing to drive him away rather than try to understand some girl who just wants to be liked.

Julie: Oh, Doug, she wants a lot more than that.

Doug: She just told me that she wants you to love her.

Julie: Doug's place -- what a perfect spot for a good act, huh?

Doug: I give up. I'm going back and think about my new home with hope.

Julie: Yeah, why don't you do that? Thinking -- that's all that'll ever come of it.

Doug: I told you I was fixing up the place.

Julie: That'll be the day.

Doug: You don't believe me? [Groans] That's it. You don't believe anyone these days. What do you want, proof? Proof? Okay, proof. You're gonna get proof. Follow me.

Alice: Your marriage was never dull.

Julie: Our life was never dull. And we still got in trouble, decades later.

Man: Well, is somebody going to answer me? What's in the trunk?

Doug: Okay, okay, uh, although it's going to sound silly, really, because it was just a blanket. Julie and I thought that it would be romantic, you see, if we came up here to recreate the very first time that we made love -- I mean, in exactly the same spot.

Julie: Well, it was my husband's idea, of course.

Doug: Well, you see, it was our 35th anniversary, right?

Julie: 35th?

Doug: 25th. That's what I meant to say.

Man: Listen, you folks seem like respectable people, but the park has rules and regulations there for a reason. It's dangerous to be out this time of night -- all sorts of wild creatures, wild animals, huh?

Doug: You're telling me. My wife was a bit wild tonight herself.

Julie: I'm going to miss him so much, gram.

Alice: I know, darling.

Julie: There never was another man like him, and there never will be again.

Lucas: Don't even start with that John-trying- to-kill-Marlena stuff. Not now. You know why? Because sometimes little guys have big ears.

Sami: I'm sorry if I'm concerned, but we are talking about my mother here.

Sami: For will's sake, please?

Sami: Okay. Okay.

Lucas: Thank you. I really wish you'd change your mind. Just come with will and me to my grandmother's house, please. You know what? The Horton’s are my family. And I know it kills you to hear this -- it just makes you sick, doesn't it? But you're my family, too. That makes this as much your deal as it is mine and Will’s.

Sami: Oh, wow, will, you look so grown-up, so handsome. Let me just fix your tie for you.

Will: Mom! Mom.

Lucas: Yeah, don't worry about it. He looks fine the way he is.

Sami: Sorry. Sorry. You look great.

Lucas: Come on. We'll be back in a while.

Sami: Will, hon, aren't you going to give me a hug goodbye?

Will: Okay.

Sami: Aw.

Will: I wish you'd come with us, mom. Dad's really sad, and I know if you came, it would help.

Sami: I'm sorry, honey, but I'm not dressed appropriately. And you're already running late, so you go on ahead.

Will: Okay. See you later.

Lucas: Come on, buddy, we'll be fine.

John: Are you serious? The last thing in the world I want is to believe that my wife could be a serial killer. I think that's why when tek hypnotized me, I was fighting the truth with my whole body, but it was right there, doc, and I couldn't ignore it anymore. I remembered seeing the killer's face just as she turned and disappeared into the woods. It was you, doc. It was you.

Lucas: I'm so sorry, Julie.

Julie: Thank you, darling.

Lucas: I'm so sorry for my loss, you know? I never got to know Doug that well.

Julie: The two of you would have gotten along just great.

Lucas: Yeah. Hey, will, did you know that Doug and Julie, they traveled all around the world?

Julie: Several times.

Will: Wow. Even Africa?

Julie: Even Africa. And Doug loved to tell stories about all of our adventures.

Will: Do you think maybe you could tell me some of those stories sometimes?

Lucas: Ahem.

Will: Or maybe not, if it makes you sad.

Julie: No, will. I want to tell you. It might make me a little sad, but it'll make me happy, too. I want to remember all the wonderful years I had with Doug.

[Doorbell rings]

Julie: Oh, who could it be at this hour?

Lucas: Don't worry about it. I'll get it. I thought you didn't want to be here.

Sami: Hi. Um, I'm sorry for interrupting. I just wanted to be here for my son. Hi, sweetie.

Will: I'm glad you changed your mind and came, mom.

Lucas: That's very thoughtful of you. I'm glad you're here, too -- for will.

Marlena: You have heard of posthypnotic suggestion. The truth is that your memory is not as incorruptible as you'd like to think. You have to have been mistaken when you say you thought you saw my face at the graveyard.

John: Oh, come on, doc. What, you think that I don't know the face of the woman I love? It was you. I know it for a fact.

Marlena: But you never told Bo or hope or tek that I was the killer -- why would you do that?

John: No, I never said anything to anybody. Because why do you think? I didn't want to believe it was true.

Marlena: John, you have every reason to believe that you saw my face at the graveyard.

John: Why is that?

Marlena: You recognized my body, so you saw my face.

John: So you're admitting it. Why?

Marlena: What you suspect is true. I am the killer.

Sami: Julie. Julie, I am so sorry about Doug, and what happened with --

Julie: Yes, yes

Lucas: Sami, stop it.

Julie: It's all right. It's all right. I've thought the same thing myself. I wish he had left a note or something, some kind of clue about the killer's identity.

Sami: Yeah, yeah. Well, I mean, I guess he already felt guilty, you know, from bringing the tiger into town -- you know, the one that attacked Tony and then nearly ate me and Lucas when we were on a camping --

Will: Mom!

Sami: Oh. Sorry.

Julie: Sami, if you're trying to make me feel better, it's not working.

Sami: I'm sorry, Julie. I'm really sorry.

Julie: Okay!

Sami: I guess I don't think anyone can say anything that wouldn't make you feel terrible about losing the love of your life.

Julie: He was that.

Sami: Love like that doesn't happen anymore, you know. It's the stuff of fairy tales. It was special and magical and -- and, wow, it's a love for the ages.

Julie: Thank you, Sami. That's a beautiful thing to say. Uncharacteristically beautiful. But alas, it's not true.

Marlena: I am that dark, heartless killer in your mind.

John: In my mind. So what is that supposed to mean? Are you saying now that you're not guilty?

Marlena: John, I don't blame you.

John: Blame me for what? What are you saying?

Marlena: You think that I'm the killer, and I understand why.

John: Don't play games with me. You just confessed to the killings.

Marlena: You're not listening to me. I'm saying that I'm not. I'm not the killer, but you believe that I am, and I think I know who put that idea into your head.

John: Shawn?

Marlena: Shawn? No. No. Someone who has made so much of our lives together a living hell. Stefano dimera.


Sami: How can you say that?  You and Doug adored each other. Anyone who looked at you could see how happy you were, how head-over-heels in love you were.

Julie: Yes, we were in love, but it was not delirious joy every moment. It was real life. It was not make-believe.

Alice: Will. Will, dear. How about if you and I go in the kitchen and get some cookies, huh?

Lucas: Yeah.

Will: No, no, thanks. I'm not really hungry.

Alice: Well, I am. Let's go.

Lucas: Come on.

Alice: Come along.

Julie: Sami, just look at my history with Doug. We were married three times, for heaven's sake.

Man: Julie, will thou have this man to be thy husband? And will thou pledge thy troth to him? All love, honour, and all duty, service, and all faith and tenderness, to live with him, cherish him, according to the ordinance of God, and the holy bond of marriage?

Julie: I will.

Man: Do you take Julie to be your wife? Do you pledge to her your love, honour, your duty, service, your faith and tenderness, as long as you both shall live?

Doug: I do.

Sami: But no matter how often you two were torn apart, you always found your ways back to each other.

Julie: That we did.

Sami: I believe that you and Doug were destined to be soul mates.

Julie: Well, you know, whenever Doug and I would go on a cruise, he would say, "calm waters make a dull voyage," and he was right. Because a little turbulence makes things exciting. Now, in any relationship, there are ups and downs. And in some very good relationships, the ups and downs can be pretty extreme. Which is why the best sex is always after a big fight.

Sami: I wouldn't know about that.

Lucas: Ah, she knows. She doesn't want to admit it, but she knows, all right.

Sami: Lucas!

Julie: I sense there's a little antagonism here.

Sami: That's no big surprise there.

Julie: I think there'd be a lot of big surprises if the two of you would just, uh, give way to what you are feeling.


John: Come on, doc, what are you saying? What does dimera have to do with all of this?

Marlena: I know this is very hard for you to fathom --

John: Try impossible. I know that lousy bastard did a lot of things to us here, but to blame this rash of killings on a dead man is absurd.

Marlena: Just hear me out, please.

John: Fine. Go for it.

Marlena: I'm going to point out to you the harsh truth, which you could never begin to realize yourself.

John: Try me.

Marlena: As long as you live, there will always be a small part of you that is controlled by Stefano dimera.

John: Nah. I broke Stefano’s control of me a long time ago, and you helped.

Marlena: To a point. You believe that I'm the killer because Stefano taught you that anything or anyone you love will ultimately betray and destroy you.

John: No. That's not true, doc. You're wrong.


Julie: Something is sparking between the two of you. I know what I'm talking about.

Sami: Well, um, Lucas and I have a kid together. You know, we have to get along for will's sake. Parental sparks -- that's all you sense here.

Lucas: We have been getting along a lot better lately, though.

Sami: Yeah, well, maybe that's because we're not in a relationship. Every relationship I've ever been in ended in disaster.

Lucas: Of your own making.

Sami: You know what, Lucas? Excuse me. I don't remember asking for your opinion.

Lucas: I know you better than you seem to know yourself, Sami.

Sami: Oh, dream on, you know me.

Julie: Uh, time out. We've got a misconception here -- that love is easy. It's not. It's work. It's hard work. No vacation days, no weekends off. But if you stick with it, the results are fabulous, 'cause you wind up with a friend, a companion, and a lover, and it just gets better and better every single day because your life is amplified by sharing it with your own true love.  And then you can look back... and remember where you started, what you've been through, and you learn who you are, and you know what life is about...  And you know, uh... where you're going.  From the first kiss... To the last, it just got better and better.


John: You really believe that?

Marlena: Yes, I do.

John: You think that all those years ago, Stefano implanted his twisted beliefs in my subconscious so... I would see your face on the murderer in the graveyard?

Marlena: Yes. It wouldn't be the first time, John, that we've had glimmerings of your past resurface. It's always been your worst nightmare, that you couldn't leave them behind, and --

John: And what?

Marlena: Look, I haven't told you this before because I didn't want to upset you, but... John, there have been nights when you have tossed and turned, muttering, terrified by nightmares.

John: Yeah? What would I say?

Marlena: Mantras -- just parts of your indoctrination.

John: Yeah, such as?

Marlena: Such as... "What you see isn't real," such as... "There is no such thing as real goodness."

John: I said that in my sleep.

Marlena: Yes, and --

John: And what? Come on. It can't be any worse than what you just told me.

Marlena: And... "Relationships are all based on lies, and therefore are destined to fail, to die in the end, and you must strike first to survive." John... Stefano -- Stefano never wanted you happy. He never cared about you. He only wanted you for his perpetual pawn. He hated you because you were all the things he could never, ever be. You were strong and brave and handsome and loved. You had me, John. Stefano implanted those things in you long before we ever met, but, John, think about it -- what perfect revenge, to have you think that I was a monster that you had to destroy.

John: [Sighs]

Marlena: John, I was your way out. I was freedom from the bondage in which Stefano held you for all those years. So I was a threat to mercenary John Black, a threat your subconscious could never, ever deal with.

John: Oh, doc, I don't want to hear any more, okay?

Marlena: John, from the moment you and I met, Stefano’s programming was fighting to get to the surface, trying to destroy us. He wanted to control you. He wanted to control me. He wanted us apart.

John: Stop. Just stop. Stop, okay? Please just...

Marlena: John, don't do this.

John: Stop.

Marlena: Don't let that part of you take over now. That's a part of you that hates, the part of you that wants to -- wants to follow Stefano’s orders, that wants to stand... alone, cold, aloof, superior, and stand alone. John... you have to fight. You've got to fight with all the goodness that I know is inside of you. Don't let Stefano destroy us again. Don't you do it. Tell me you believe me... and promise me, promise me you will not let that bastard win.


Julie: There were 1,000 moments with my darling I'll never forget.

Sami: That is so beautiful. That's the kind of love I've always dreamed of. Those are the kind of memories worth having, right?

Julie: Well, I'll tell you, darling -- if the two of you have a fraction of the kind of love Doug and I shared, and you allow it to help you weather life's ups and downs, you'll be the happiest couple on earth.


Marlena: Please don't let Stefano win.

John: I don't even know what to say.

Marlena: Tell me how you feel.

John: The more you talk, I felt the sensations that you might... be right. No, you must be right. I mean, there's -- there's no way you could be the killer, is there?

Marlena: No.

John: No. No. Just the thought of dimera screwing around with my head like that, that his evil influence is so powerful that it made me doubt your goodness -- damn. Now look what I've done. Look how I've treated you -- my wife, my -- my -- my best friend, my... I don't even know what to say, doc. You just have this -- this need to -- to make up for my unforgivable breach of faith and my betrayal of our love. I don't even have the right to ask you this.

Marlena: Ask me.

John: Can you find it in your heart to forgive me for ever doubting you? Oh. Thank God. I love you.

Marlena: Mm, I love you.

John: I'm so relieved that it's not you. Now I can concentrate on catching the real killer. And I'm going to stop that witch before she strikes again.


“Next on Days of Our Lives”

Hope: Even if it's possible she got home in that time frame, once again, what is her motive?

Tek: Forget that you know Marlena. How would you analyze the evidence against her?

Marlena: I'm going to need to feel that you love me and trust me.

John: Well, just know that I will never doubt you again.

Sami: You think I have a chance of having true love?

Alice: I-I'm here, tom. What did you want to tell me?
