Proofread By Niki
Austin: Here we are.
Carrie: Oh, I cannot believe that you got me to stay up all night long. Thank you for the carriage ride. Oh, I used to love when we'd come and watch the sunrise here, and you know I'm not a morning person.
Austin: Me neither.
Carrie: Nice memories.
Austin: Well, it's a perfect day to make new memories. It's a new dawn, a new day.
Carrie: A new year.
Austin: A fresh start. In a few hours, the deal I put together is gonna hit the Newswire, and right now I feel like I'm king of the world.
Carrie: I'm so happy for you.
Austin: Do you know what I'm most happy about?
Carrie: Tell me.
Austin: That you are back in my life.
Marlena: Well, it looks like Claire is holding her own.
Belle: Well, the liver transplant went well. Now we just have to wait and see what happens.
Marlena: Shawn... I'm so sorry about Zach.
Shawn D.: Thanks. It doesn't even seem real. I just -- I just hope Claire's gonna be all right.
Marlena: Yeah. Well, thanks to your parents and your entire family, she now has a chance.
Belle: I'm so grateful for that. I just wish that -- I really love having this blanket tucked around her. It's Zach's.
Marlena: [Groans softly] Um, I heard that Philip and Victor took off somewhere.
Belle: Yeah. They went to see a transplant specialist who's developed this new drug that may help prevent organ rejection. It's experimental.
Shawn D.: Let's hope Claire doesn't need it.
Belle: I'm hoping that, especially since it may not work with someone so young.
Marlena: Let's not get ahead of ourselves, okay? Because right now Claire is alive. You look so tired -- both of you.
Shawn D.: Yeah. Yeah. No, I'm fine. Actually, did you see Mimi when you came in?
Shawn D.: No? Oh. I thought she would be back by now. She went back to the loft to pick up some clean clothes for us.
Marlena: Oh. Sweet.
Lexie: Oh. Marlena. Good to see you again.
Marlena: Good to see you, too. I hear the transplant went very well.
Lexie: Yeah. Yeah. Why don't the three of you wait outside while I see how she's doing?
Marlena: Sure. Thanks.
Belle: I'm sorry, mom. How are you doing? Dad told me that Alex tried to break into the penthouse?
Shawn D.: Yeah, I heard that, too. Are you okay?
Marlena: I'm fine. I'm fine. Alex would never ever hurt me.
Belle: How can you say that? According to dad, Alex was on the ledge outside your bedroom window with a gun.
Marlena: You know, your dad tends to overreact sometimes. He shot Alex.... and right now Alex is in a hospital bed, fighting for his life.
John: Thanks for coming with me, Abraham.
Abe: I want to tell you, after everything that's going on, I'm grateful for the distraction.
John: Lexie tells me you might be a candidate for a corneal transplant?
Abe: [Sighs] You know, I don't want to get my hopes up. I-I was so full of self-pity when I lost my sight. It took me a long time to realize just how damn lucky I am to have Theo, to have Lexie, especially after everything that happened last night. Anyway, buddy, it's good to feel useful again. Thank you.
John: No. Thank you. 'Cause if anybody saw me go into North's room alone, they'd probably think I was here to finish him off.
John: Come on.
Abe: Oh, thanks.
John: We need to make sure that he's out of commission and no threat to Marlena.
John: Yeah, he's still unconscious.
Alex: [Thinking] Damn it, John. I'm not a threat to Marlena. I never have been. Lois Banks is a threat.
John: As long as he's out of it, now I can concentrate on my granddaughter. I'm sorry, Abraham. I know much you loved Zach.
Abe: And you.
John: My heart goes out to Bo and Hope. Any word on the hit-and-run driver?
Abe: I guess you haven't heard the latest.
John: What's that?
Abe: The police have evidence that points to Bo.
Abe: It was his car that hit Zach.
John: Oh, my God. His own son?
Jennifer: Hope, you have got to close your eyes.
Hope: I canít.
Jennifer: Yes, you can. You need to rest. You do.
Hope: I canít. How can I rest? Every time I close my eyes, I see Zach lying in the street.
[Inhales sharply] How could it have been Bo's car?
Jennifer: I don't know. It doesn't make any sense.
Hope: The cops have to be wrong. And bo couldn't have been involved -- he couldnít. Oh, God. How could they say he's responsible?
Max: Why do you think it's your fault Zach's dead?
Chelsea: [Sniffles] The accident I had tonight -- I thought that I hit a pothole, but it was so -- it was so dark. And what if I -- what if I --
Max: No, no, no. You didnít. You couldnít.
Chelsea: I overheard the cops talking to Bo and Hope, and they said that they think that his S.U.V. was involved in the hit-and-run. And if it was, then that -- then that means --
Max: If it was, then...you're the driver that killed Zach.
Cop 1: Excuse me. Max Brady?
Max: Yeah, that's me.
Cop 1: We need to ask you some questions.
Bo: Chelsea, I want to know everything that happened when you took off in my truck, and don't lie to me this time.
Chelsea: I already told you. I was driving, and I had an accident, and that is why I called.
Bo: You said you hit something -- a pothole, a bump.
Chelsea: That's what I thought it was.
Bo: Come on, Chelsea, think! Damn it! Think! Did you hit Zach?
Chelsea: I don't know! I couldn't see. It was dark, and maybe it was a dog.
Bo: No, Chelsea, it was not a dog! You hit my son! You killed Zach!
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives.
Hope: [Cries] Bo's a careful driver. There's -- there's just no way he could have hit Zach and not known. The police -- they've got to be wrong.
Jennifer: I know. I know. It's got to be a mistake, okay? But you have just been through a terrible ordeal, and if you do not rest for a little while --
Hope: I canít. Jennifer, I've got to find who did this to my son.
Chelsea: I couldn't have killed Zach.
Bo: Oh, come on, Chelsea! You said you didn't know what you hit, and the cops have evidence it was my truck that killed my son! And we both know who was driving.
Chelsea: I wouldn't have done that to Zach.
Bo: I shouldn't have signed that temporary license -- what the hell was I thinking?
Chelsea: Dad, please.
Bo: And then I hand you the keys to my car. How stupid could I be?!
Chelsea: I couldn't have done this. I couldn't have.
Bo: Oh, Chelsea, stop it! Stop it! The tire tracks at the scene are from my truck. The broken parking light at the scene was from my truck! My truck is the one that killed my son, and you were driving it!
Chelsea: No! God, no! Dad, you have to believe me. I didn't mean to.
Bo: I sat there and told you a car can be a deadly weapon, and then I gave you the keys. God. God. What did I do? What did I do? [Crying] My God, what did I do? Zach, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, Zach.
Chelsea: Dad, he was my little brother. I wouldn't have done this. I loved him.
Marlena: Look, there's no need for me to burden you with my concerns about Alex.
Belle: No, I want to know. Come on. You really have no idea why he was outside your bedroom window?
Marlena: No, I donít. I won't know till he wakes up and t-- and tells us -- that is, if he wakes up and tells us. See, that's the nightmare of all this.
Belle: You really love him, don't you?
Marlena: This isn't the time to talk about that. All I want to do right now is just say many, many prayers for Claire... and for Zach.
Belle: Gonna stay around for a while?
Marlena: You bet. I'll be in my office. I thought I'd get off my feet for a while, and whenever you need me, I'll be right there.
Belle: I'll let you know. Thank you for being here. I really appreciate it.
Marlena: I wouldn't be anywhere else.
Shawn D.: You okay?
Belle: [Sniffles] I guess so.
Shawn D.: It's weird -- your mother not remembering the rest of the family.
Belle: I know, and I just hope she starts getting it all back soon. I'm hoping for a lot of things all at once.
Shawn D.: Mostly for Claire.
Belle: She has to make it.
Shawn D.: Well, that's what I'm praying for. That girl means the world to me.
Belle: You've shown me that in so many ways.
Shawn D.: She's got to make it, right? God wouldn't be that cruel.
Belle: So, how's Claire doing?
Lexie: I'm sorry. I wish I had better news.
Austin: What are you thinking? Right now, what are you thinking?
Carrie: I'm too scared to tell you. I don't want to jinx things.
Austin: Jinx -- jinx what?
Carrie: [Exhales deeply] But I'm too cool to be superstitious, right? So I'll tell you.
Austin: You are supercool.
Carrie: Oh, I haven't felt this happy in an awfully long time, and it makes me think that we really do have a chance to be together.
Austin: Of course we do, and I'm not gonna blow it this time.
Carrie: It wasn't just your fault. I'd like to say that it was all Sami, but I made mistakes all by myself -- the biggest one being Mike.
Austin: We're not gonna dwell on the screw-ups, okay?
Austin: Okay, good.
Carrie: But I think remembering them can keep us from repeating them, and I'd like us to have a future together -- the kind of future that we used to dream about.
Austin: I think we got a really good shot at it. Right now, I have a surprise for you.
Carrie: Another one? Great. I love surprises.
Austin: Good. Good. Okay. [Clears throat] I know you do. Close your eyes.
Carrie: Okay. Uh-oh. Blindfolding me?
Carrie: [Chuckling] Oh, my goodness. I think the last time I was blindfolded was Sally Keenan's sixth-grade birthday party. I pinned the tail on the donkey's forehead.
Austin: Okay, I hope I could top that one. That sounds kind of tough. Hang onto me, okay?
Alex: So, you see, Marlena, I'm not simply your husband -- the man who loves you -- I'm also your psychiatrist.
Marlena: But that's not a good idea.
Alex: I know what you're thinking.
Marlena: Oh, of course you do. It's a conflict of interest.
Alex: Nonsense. Now, who could care more about your mental health than me?
Marlena: But st--
Alex: Unh-unh. I love you. I want to protect you. Therefore I must warn you. I don't want you to believe one word that John Black says against me 'cause I am not a threat to you, but Lois Banks is.
John: So, you tell me the cops think it was Bo's car that hit Zach?
Abe: They're sure of it. But Bo swears he wasn't driving the car.
John: Well, he wouldn't lie about something like this. So if he wasn't driving it, who was?
Abe: That's a good question. John: Abe, listen, you agree that Bo wouldn't lie about something like this, especially when it's his own son. You know he wouldn't leave the scene of a crime.
Abe: No, no, of course not. But I do think Bo knows more than he's saying, and I got to tell you -- it scares the hell out of me.
John: Oh, man. What's this damn world coming to, anyway? Earthquakes and tsunamis and hurricanes.
Abe: Terrorists and new diseases, and who knows what's coming next?
John: Yeah, look what's happening in our own backyard -- Marlena's amnesia, Belle's daughter's fighting for her life, Zach's dead. Now you're telling me it's Bo's car. If DiMera weren't behind bars, I'd think he were behind all this.
Abe: Well, for once, I don't think we can blame any of this on him.
John: Of course, we thought this freak was safely behind bars tonight, too. But at least now we got him in a position where he can't hurt Marlena.
Alex: [Thinking] Lois Banks is the one you should worry about.
Lois: How is he?
John: Where'd you come from?
Lois: I just wanted to check on Alex. I guess there's no change, huh?
John: He's still unconscious. Abe, I'm sorry. This is Lois Banks. She's the woman that exposed Alex North for being a wife abuser. Lois Banks, this is Abe Carver.
Lois: It's very nice to meet you.
Abe: Well, you too. I take it you're not associated with University Hospital.
Lois: No, I'm from out of town. Anyway, I just wanted to check on Alex and see if he'd regained consciousness. He's a very dangerous man, and I just wanted to make sure he was no longer a threat to any of us. John, where's Marlena? Is she still resting in her office?
John: Why do you ask?
Alex: [Thinking] Because she wants to kill Marlena, you idiot! You have to stop her.
Lois: I'm very concerned about my friend. That's why I ask. Marlena's the reason I came to Salem -- to make sure she was safe from Alex.
John: As you can see, he's unconscious, so she's fine.
Alex: [Thinking] Lois is trying to kill me, and Marlena is going to be next if you don't protect her.
John: The fact is, Marlena's had a pretty rough night. I think it's better if she just got some rest.
Lois: Yes, of course. I'll let her sleep. Look at his hand. What's he trying to do?
John: It looks like he's coming around.
Lois: I suggest he be put in restraints. If he wakes up, who's to say he's not gonna go after Marlena again?
John: I like the way you think. I'll get the nurse. Abe, wait here for me?
John: Yeah. Okay. All right. Just go on.
Lois: The patient is getting restless.
Abe: Well, like John said, maybe he's regaining consciousness.
Lois: John needs to make sure he can't cause any more trouble.
Abe: I'm sure he will.
Lois: Well, it's nice to meet you, Abe. I've got some things to attend to.
Abe: Oh, me too. I'll tell John that you left.
Lois: Bye-bye. [Thinking] I was planning to kill Alex first, but he has company. Marlena, on the other hand, is alone and waiting for me.
Alex: Marlena, are you listening to me? You seem somewhat distracted.
Marlena: I'm sorry. What did you say?
Alex: This is a very serious matter. Lois Banks is a psychopath, and you are her target. So you have to watch out for her.
Belle: What's wrong with Claire?
Lexie: I was hoping this wouldn't happen, but she's developed a high fever.
Belle: No. Not again. God, is this ever gonna stop?!
Shawn D.: Hold on. What does that mean? Does she have another infection?
Lexie: Well, it means that her body may be rejecting the liver transplant.
Hope: [Crying] Why do these terrible things keep happening? I told Shawn that he was wrong -- that he had to have faith -- but I don't know. It's like we're cursed.
Jennifer: Don't say that. That is not true. Hope --
Hope: Zach just -- he just had his yearly checkup right before Christmas, and the doctor said he was the healthiest boy in Salem. [Crying] Is this my curse?! Am I being punished?
Jennifer: Listen to me, Hope.
Hope: Was I too proud? Was I too complacent?
Jennifer: No. God is not punishing you. You cannot think like that.
Hope: Oh, my God. He was my heart. How do I go on?
Jennifer: I know.
Hope: How do I go on?
Jennifer: I know. I know how much you're suffering. I do. And Bo and Shawn -- they're suffering, too. But do you remember -- do you remember what Gran taught us? That we are Horton women, and we need to be strong for our families. You know? Remember? So no matter how much we want to give in to our sadness, we canít.
Chelsea: Dad, if I did hit Zach, it was an accident. I swear, I never even saw him!
Bo: How? How could you not see a boy standing in the street? I don't give a damn how dark it was. Were you speeding? Did you take your eyes off the road? Yeah, you took -- because of your negligence, your little brother is dead. My sweet little boy is gone.
Chelsea: I'm sorry! Dad, you have to know that. [Crying] I'm sorry. Please don't hate me.
Bo: No. Come here. No. No. Oh, God, no. [Cries] I don't hate you. No. I love you. I just -- I just wish that you would -- God, I can't even look at you.
Chelsea: You're acting like I deliberately did this. I-I would never hurt Zach.
Bo: This is a pattern with you. You're reckless and irresponsible. But so am I. So am I. Oh, God.
[Crying] Oh, God. This is all my fault.
Chelsea: Dad, it's nobody's fault! It was an accident -- a horrible, stupid accident.
Bo: Oh, my gosh. How am I gonna tell Hope? How am I gonna tell Hope that my daughter killed Zach? He was the light of her life. She's not gonna be able to take this.
Chelsea: You can't tell her. You cannot tell Hope.
Carrie: [Gasps] Ah. I know where we are -- our fish place.
Austin: It was dumb blindfolding you.
Carrie: Yeah. As if I could forget this lovely smell.
Austin: A lot of good memories.
Carrie: Oh! Great lobster rolls. Messy but delicious. And look -- the tank's in the same spot. Remember?
Waiter: You picked two beauties. I'll pack them up for you in a minute.
Austin: Okay. No hurry. What are you doing?
Carrie: I'm naming them. That one is Austin.
Carrie: Because he's so handsome, of course.
Austin: Is that a compliment?
Carrie: Yes. And he's also a fighter.
Austin: Well, all lobsters are fighters. I read that somewhere. They're very territorial with each other.
Carrie: Yeah, but, see, a bit of his claw's missing, so he's definitely a warrior.
Austin: Yeah, he was like, "hey, man, want a piece of me?" And, like, some other lobster obviously did.
Austin: I'm calling that one Carrie. That's Carrie right there.
Carrie: Oh, naturally.
Austin: Yeah, because she's a looker. She's like a red-hot mama, and she's gonna get even redder and hotter when we cook her up.
Carrie: We can't cook them, Austin.
Austin: We can't?
Carrie: No. That would be "lobstercide." Austin and Carrie need to live happily ever after.
Austin: Did you just say, "lobstercide"? [Exhales deeply] Okay. All right. We can't cook them. You win. We'll set them free, all right? St. Lawrence Seaway, here we come.
Austin: Those were two lucky lobsters.
Carrie: It felt good to put them back in the water.
Austin: Yeah, commuting their death sentences. I felt like the governor or something.
Carrie: I don't believe it. Come here. Look. [Gasps] This is Austin. They must have caught him again.
Austin: Well, no offense, Carrie, but that was a long time ago.
Carrie: But a bit of his claw's missing.
Austin: Oh, yeah, it is.
Carrie: I swear that this is Austin. [Gasps] And he's separated from Carrie. [Gasps] We got to get them back together. Austin, please.
Austin: Okay. Okay. Okay. Hold on right here. Uh, yes. I'm sorry. Hi. The big lobster up against the side -- we'll take that one.
Waiter: Oh. The jumbo?
Waiter: I'm sorry, guy. It's already sold -- to Hector over there. I'm about to boil it up for him.
Carrie: Austin's gonna be eaten? For breakfast -- a whole lobster?
Austin: Hector's a wide load and obviously a hungry load.
Carrie: We can't let him cook Austin. What will Carrie do?
Austin: All right. Watch my back.
Carrie: What are you doing?
Austin: I'm gonna commit a "lobsternapping."
Abe: He seems to be getting agitated.
John: Yeah. He probably feels the restraints. Too damn bad. I don't want him waking up and going after Marlena again.
Alex: [Thinking] If you didn't hate me so much, John, you'd realize I'm no danger to Marlena. If you don't keep Lois Banks away from her, it's going to be too late.
Lois: [Thinking] This shouldn't take long. Once I send Marlena to the other side, I'll go back and put Alex out of his misery, as well.
[Monitor beeping rapidly] (Laughs) I think it's a couple of times a week. Something like that.
Belle: Hey. Thank you for staying positive.
Shawn D.: Yeah. Yeah, well, I believe what I said. As long as she's alive, she can keep fighting.
Belle: She has to make it.
Shawn D.: Yeah. Yeah. You hear your mother, Claire?
Shawn D.: Zach gave you this blanket. It was his favorite. [Sniffles] He believed it had magical powers, so that's why he wanted you to have it. He wanted you to get better.. And now he gave you a part of him... so I have to believe that this transplant is gonna make you feel better. Zach was a strong kid. And now that a part of him is with you, it's gonna make you stronger, too.
Chelsea: Are you gonna tell the police that I was the one driving your car? You know what? It doesn't even matter. Because if you don't, then Hope will.
Bo: I don't know how this is gonna play out. I'm not gonna make things worse by lying to my wife.
Chelsea: So, what's gonna happen? I'm gonna be charged with murder, and I'm -- I'm gonna go to prison. If that happens, my whole life will be over.
Hope: Zach. Oh, God, please don't take him from me.
Jennifer: Shh. It's okay.
Jennifer: Hey. She just now fell asleep. She's been fighting it the whole time. My gosh, Bo, what happened? Hope -- I can't even understand how your car was involved in this.. I can't understand it, either. Are the police right? Is it your car that hit Zach?
Officer 1: Detective Brady's car is being impounded. You should be at your garage when the forensic team arrives, and you better start cooperating. Understand?
Officer 2: I just told the watch Commander we were gonna check in. We better go do that.
Chelsea: Max, what are you doing? Max, please, you cannot turn me in.
Carrie: [Gasps] Is that what I think it is?
Austin: Yep. My nautical namesake.
Carrie: Oh, Austin, how did you do it?
Austin: Well, I made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
Hector: Thanks. I appreciate it.
Austin: Hey, take care, man. It cost me a king's ransom, but hector agreed to eat some other creature of the deep for breakfast.
Carrie: Uh-oh. How much did you pay?
Austin: Not to worry. It came out of the, the, um, "Austin the lobster" defense fund.
Carrie: [Chuckles] Thank you. Now Austin can reunite with Carrie, just like Nemo did with his dad.
Austin: Okay. [Clears throat] Okay, pal, here you go. May you and Carrie avoid all future lobster traps [Chuckles] And have a very long and happy life together.
Austin: [Sighs] I want that for us, too, by the way.
Max: I'm not gonna rat you out to the cops. But they're impounding Bo's car, so I have to get back to the garage. Are you gonna be okay?
Chelsea: I don't know. Everything depends on what my dad does.
Bo: [Sniffles] I'm sorry, Fancy Face. I'm so, so sorry.
Lois: [Thinking] You clumsy -- now look what you've done. You're gonna pay for this.
John: So, Abraham... if Bo wasn't driving his car when it hit Zach, who do you suppose was?
Abe: I wish I knew.
John: Hmm. Well, all I know is it's gonna put a hell of a strain on their marriage. You hear so often about how losing a child can tear a couple apart. They're gonna need to be so strong through this.
Abe: I'm praying for them... and for your daughter and her husband.
John: Thanks, Abraham.
Abe: So, what about this guy? You think he'll come out of his coma?
John: Well, even if he does, he's going to prison for attempted murder.
Abe: It sounds like he might be better off if he doesn't survive.
John: I'm not shedding any tears for him. My main concern is Marlena. Now I know that she's safe.
Alex: [Thinking] Safe?! She's not safe at all!
Carrie: Bye, Austin.
Carrie: Oh! You are my hero. Thank you for giving Austin the lobster his freedom. He had a close call. You know what?
Carrie: I think that I'm gonna swear off lobster rolls from now on.
Austin: Wow. This is a day of new beginnings all around -- for you, for me, and for our lobster friends. Wow.
Carrie: I think he'll find Carrie, don't you?
Austin: Oh, I'm sure of it.
Carrie: Uh-oh. Could that be a bad sign? It looks like rain.
Austin: Well, I'm sure it won't bother the lobsters or us.
Carrie: Mmm. [Inhales deeply]
Austin: I am never gonna lose you again.
Carrie: Please donít.
Austin: You understand? You understand?
Belle: [Sniffles] I wish she could have known Zach. You would have really loved him. He really, really loved you. [Sniffles] And as sad as we are that he's gone, we just hope that his liver will help you live. And Shawn's right, you know? Zach was a strong and healthy little boy, and we just pray -- just pray -- that his strength is gonna help make you better.
Zach: Hi, Shawn. Hi, Belle. Don't be sad. I'm okay.
Max: All right, look, I'm leaving for the garage right now, so you can tell your crime-lab people I'll meet them there, all right?
Chelsea: Dad, please promise me that you won't tell Hope what I did. The truth is only gonna make it worse for everyone.
Jennifer: Is she all right?
Lexie: Yeah, she's just exhausted. No wonder.
Jennifer: Oh, Lexie, this is a mother's worst nightmare.
Lexie: Yeah, I wish it were just a nightmare. Unfortunately, she's gonna wake up and realize it's real -- her little boy is gone.
Chelsea: Daddy, please don't tell Hope that I'm responsible for killing Zach. She'll hate me, and she'll probably hate you for having me. We'll never be a family. She'll turn me in to the police. Dad, please, I'm begging you. Don't let them take me to prison.
Carrie: Someone had to steal my company right from underneath me. I can't even imagine who would do something like that.
Sami: I think that everyone should know that you are the one behind this takeover.
Shawn D.: We had the same dream.
Belle: Maybe it wasn't a dream.
Shawn D.: That you and I...
Belle: Were meant to be together.
Bo: I know who it was.
Billie: Who did this? I know the person who killed detective Brady's son.. It was me.
