Days of Our Lives Transcript Monday 7/17/06 - Canada; Tuesday 7/18/06 - U.S.A.
Proofread By Niki
Philip: All right, look. I'm not gonna mince words here. I was thinking about this on the way home. We all know this never should have happened, and it seems like there's nothing we can do. But in my mind, the only sane thing to do while we're still dealing with a few embryonic cells that have yet to become fetuses, is to terminate both pregnancies right now..
Belle: Absolutely not.
Shawn D.: No, there's no way I'm gonna let that happen.
Philip: What do you mean "no"? What are we supposed to do? Meems, I love you. But if you don't mind, I'd like to have a baby with my wife.
Mimi: And I'd prefer to have a child with my husband.
Philip: Now, no one likes abortion, including me. What the hell else are we supposed to do?
Shawn D.: I'm sorry. You know how I feel about abortion. I don't agree with it unless the woman has been raped or her life is in jeopardy, and se here.
Philip: It's not far off.
Shawn D.: I cannot go along with a procedure that's gonna take an innocent life.
Jennifer: Jack, Jack, you squeezed my hand. That means you're getting better. That means the medicine is working, okay? So just hang on. Hang on. Do it for me. Do it for the kids. Jack, look at me. Draw your strength. Draw your strength from me, okay? I love you. I need you so much. I can't live without you, Jack.
Lexie: Hey, how's it going?
Jennifer: Well, um, I don't know.
Lexie: Have you noticed any changes in Jack's condition?
Jennifer: Lexie, he squeezed my hand. I mean, does that mean the medicine's working or was it just a reflex, what?
Lexie: No, I'd say that's a good sign. Frankie, would you mind taking Jennifer out while I examine Jack?
Jennifer: No, I think that I should stay here. What if he needs me?
Lexie: Listen, I promise. If he asks for you, I'll come and get you, okay?
Jennifer: Okay. Jack, Jack, I'm gonna be right outside, okay? Frankie, this is amazing. I mean, I think that Jack is starting to respond to the medicine.
Frankie: I heard. We need to talk.
Stephanie: Mom, is everything okay? Is dad okay?
Kayla: Yeah, he's fine. I just wanted a chance to talk to you. I thought we could spend some time together tonight.
Stephanie: I gave you guys some space. I thought you could use some time alone. Where is he?
Kayla: He's right outside. You didn't see him when you came in?
Stephanie: Dad coming home is the most amazing thing that's ever happened to me, but it's also really strange.
Kayla: I know. I know there are so many changes going on in your life right now. That's kind of what I want to talk about, about maybe thinking about making another big change.
Kayla: I'd like you to consider giving up racing.
Chelsea: Sand in my toes -- I love it.
Max: I know. I love the beach, too, but I wasn't ready to go home yet, either.
Chelsea: Me, neither. But the food at Dune was...ugh.
Max: The Dune is not known for its food.
Chelsea: Would it kill to have a few burgers on the menu?
Max: What are you talking about? Buddy's is the best burgers in town, and we have an all-night supply.
Chelsea: Oh, all night, huh?
Max: Mm-hmm. Who knows what else can happen on a night like this.
Lucas: We need a doctor! We need a doctor here, hurry!
Dr. Ross: What have we got?
Nurse: Severe smoke inhalation.
Lucas: I don't know what happened. Our apartment caught on fire somehow. You're gonna be okay, honey. I'm Lucas Roberts. That's my wife, Carrie. We just got married..
Dr. Ross: You can just wait here, Mr. Roberts, and we'll send word. Were all of you in the building because you need to get checked out.
Sami: No, I'm fine, but Lucas should get checked out.
Lucas: I don't need to be checked out, all right? I'm worried about Carrie. She's pregnant.
Dr. Ross: I'll send word as soon as we know.
Lucas: Check on the baby, please!
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.
Jennifer: I am so sorry.
Frankie: Sorry you said what you said or sorry I heard you?
Jennifer: I don't know what to say.
Frankie: The truth, that's all. You said you love him and that you need him.
Frankie: And that the two of you get another chance. That is really what you want, isn't it, Jen?
Austin: Lucas, listen to me. Carrie is a fighter. She'll fight for you and that baby.
Lucas: Austin, man, she was unconscious. She was unconscious the whole way here in the ambulance. I'm scared, man. I'm scared for her. I shouldn't have let this happen.
E.J.: Lucas, don't blame yourself. Listen to me, the measure of a man is in his response, and I'd say you're holding it very well.
Austin: Trust me, she's not gonna give up. That's why we love her so much.
Lucas: I hope not. Doctor, is my wife okay? Is the baby all right?
Dr. Ross: Yes, they're fine.
Lucas: Thank you. Thank God.
Sami: See, Lucas? We told you.
Dr. Ross: Look, it would have been far different if you hadn't gotten them out of the apartment when you did. I'm gonna keep her overnight for observation.
Lucas: Wait, why overnight? Is there something you're not telling me? What's going on?
Dr. Ross: Your wife's suffering from smoke inhalation. Hospital bed rest will give her a chance to recover and you some time to get the air cleaned out in your apartment. She's resting now.
Lucas: Can I see her?
Dr. Ross: Of course. This way.
Lucas: Thanks. Carrie, you sleep, okay? You sleep. I'll be right here for you, right here waiting.
Dr. Ross gave your wife a sedative, but she'll be fine.
Stephanie: I love racing. It's not just a hobby or a passing phase, and it's not just my job. It's my life.
Kayla: But it worries me to death. Every time you get behind that wheel, there's a good chance that you might die before you get to the finish line.
Stephanie: Mom, every time a person leaves their house, there's a possibility that something could happen to them.
Kayla: It is not the same, and you know it.
Stephanie: You're a doctor. Who knows how many infectious diseases you come into contact with every day? And now you're telling me you're going to Darfur to volunteer at a Children's Hospital. You think I don't worry about you? And until a few days ago, you were the only parent I had left. But did I try and stand in your way? No.
Kayla: Stephanie, my job is to help people who are sick and dying. Your job --
Stephanie: Is meaningless, right? You think my whole life --
Kayla: I did not say that. You are putting words in my mouth.
Stephanie: Dad. I've been waiting my whole life to do that.
Kayla: And you could do it every day. If you go off on the road with this racing -- do you really want to miss any more time with him?
Stephanie: I have an easy solution for that one. Hey, Dad, will you come see me the next time I race?
Stephanie: For God's sake, I'm not trying to -- it's what I love, Mom, like I love you and dad. Papa, what do you think? Do you think mom has a right to tell me what to do with my life?
Nick: [Clears throat]
Chelsea: What's so fascinating?
Max: I keep trying to walk away from you, but here we are.
Chelsea: Yep, here we are.
Max: Why do you keep trying to push me away when you want us to be together?
Chelsea: Look, I told you that I like you, Max. I'm just -- I'm not ready to give up my freedom.
Max: So you can date other guys, but I can't date other girls?
Chelsea: So now you're dating other girls? I thought Stephanie was "just a friend."
Max: She is, but you're just getting jealous.
Chelsea: I am not.
Chelsea: You know what? Fine. If you don't want to believe me, you can enjoy your meal and your moonlight all by yourself.
Max: I don't want to be by myself. I want to be with you. Hmm?
Philip: This situation has been hard enough on us already, and now we get hit by a lightning bolt. The hospital messed up so badly, I don't know who to sue first. Your surrogate is carrying my baby. Belle is carrying yours. And that's nothing that any of us wanted. Make no mistake about it -- we have all been abused by this situation. Shawn, our wives are having babies without their consent. Sounds like rape to me.
Shawn D.: I know it's bad, Philip, okay? I'm not disagreeing with you. But don't ask me about the future. I don't know what the fallout of this is gonna be. But the babies -- the babies are innocent. Look, I lost my brother earlier this year because some girl was completely selfish. Don't ask me to do the same. I want this baby to live -- my baby to live, no matter who the mother is.
Mimi: I can't take this.
Shawn D.: No, no, Mimi.
Philip: You've been very quiet.
Belle: I don't want to upset you.
Philip: Belle, you want to keep the baby that you're carrying. How is that not going to upset me? Understand this. I have done all I can possibly tolerate to maintain a friendship with Shawn for the sake of our marriage. But don't think for one second that I am going to stand here and watch you have his baby. Do this stuff. Because you are doing more and more of it..
Frankie: Look, I know it's personal, and I've got mixed feelings even asking you, but I'm just trying to find my way here.
Jennifer: No, I know.
Frankie: You said you loved him and that you need him. I know you do. And that's why I want him to get better, for your sake and for Jack's. But if -- no, when he gets better, what do I do? Do I just walk away?
Jennifer: I don't know.
Lucas: Carrie's okay.
Sami: You talked to her?
Lucas: No, she's asleep. She's resting. They gave her a sedative or something.
Austin: Hell of a way to spend your wedding night, huh?
Lucas: Yeah. You guys -- can you give me a second? I want to talk to Sami, just for a minute.
Sami: What'd I do wrong now?
Lucas: It's what you did right. You went into that burning apartment and saved me.
Sami: E.J.'s the one who saved you, Lucas.
Lucas: No, you did. You're a hero. A lot of people would have been too scared to go into that apartment.
Sami: I didn't think about it like that.
Lucas: All those times I accused you of being selfish, and then you save my life like that.
Sami: I was just thinking about Will. You know how hard it was for him when he almost lost you in the fire at the Kiriakis mansion.
Lucas: That's when you hated me. You probably rooted for me to die.
Sami: You're my son's father, Lucas, and I... I care about you. I always have.
Lucas: You proved that tonight. You'll never know how much that means to me.
Austin: E.J., Can you do me a favor and give Sami a ride home?
E.J.: Yeah, it would be my pleasure. What are you gonna do?
Austin: I'm gonna stay here. I think they'll need me.
E.J.: You're a good man, Austin. Listen, can I ask you a question? You can tell me to piss off if it's a little too close to the bone, but are you okay?
Austin: Yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. Why?
E.J.: It's just that when we found out that Carrie was going to be okay, you were the quiet guy. And I know that you guys had some kind of relationship awhile ago, and I was just...
Austin: We were married, but that was a long time ago. Look, man, I'm happy for Carrie and my brother.
E.J.: Hey, Austin, relax. You don't have to explain anything to me.
Sami: Austin, what are you explaining?
E.J.: He was just -- I'm gonna give you a ride home.
Austin: This way if will hears about the fire on the news or any other way, you'll be there when he calls, okay?
Lucas: That's a really good idea. Thanks, man.
Sami: Oh, yeah. Thank you, Austin, for thinking for me. I'm so lucky. If you're sure. You don't want me to stay, right?
Lucas: No, it's fine.
Austin: No, no, no. You go home, okay? Just get some rest.
Lucas: Really, go. We'll be fine. I'll see you tomorrow.
E.J.: Come on.
Austin: Thanks, E.J.
Lucas: Really, man, I appreciate it, but you don't have to stay. I can handle it.
Austin: No, man, you're looking a little rough, okay?
Lucas: The coffee here stinks. I'm gonna go down to the cafeteria and get some real stuff. You want anything?
Austin: No, I'm cool.
Lucas: Will you do me a favor? Will you keep an eye on Carrie while I'm gone? I just need a minute.
Austin: Okay, I will.
Austin: You can't hear me, so I guess it's okay... to tell you that what almost happened tonight woke me up. I can't lose you.
Nick: Listen, I know your mama isn't happy about you racing cars, and I'm not gonna lie to you. It scares me. I'm not crazy about it, either.
Stephanie: Yeah, but isn't that just the two of you being overprotective parents? I'm like you, Dad. Mom, you told me dad was kind of an outlaw when you met him. He was a hypomaniac like me, so it's in my genes. From you, too, by the way. You're the one who picked a guy like dad to marry. And starting med school when you did? All the other interns were young enough to be her kids. But you didn't let that stop you. You had to be a doctor, just like dad had to be a cop, and I have to race.
Nick: Wow. If that's how you really feel about it. You know, I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you I'm happy about it, but I think you got to follow your heart.
Kayla: Thanks for your help, Steve.
Nick: Come on, Kayla. You can't lie to kids. They'll never trust you if you do.
Stephanie: It means so much to me that you understand why I love racing so much.
Nick: I can see you're passionate about it.
Stephanie: It's my whole world.
Nick: Oh, really? Well, I don't know about that. I mean, I think you need more than a career to be happy. Listen, I've been out there a long time with nobody. I haven't been connected to anybody. And I don't remember Steve Johnson. I don't remember anything about his life. But I have to tell you, this guy right here, right now, I feel pretty damn lucky to have people like you and your mama -- good people who care about me. So I say you go ahead. You have your career. You climb your mountain. I respect that. But I think it's important to have somebody at home who cares about you. Maybe I don't need to tell you that. You have a special guy?
Max: I've wanted you for such a long time, Chelse.
Chelsea: Then why did you stop kissing me?
Max: I just -- I really need to know. If you aren't ready, that's okay. But if you are -- are you really ready to do this?
Chelsea: Yes. Now stop talking.
Shawn D.: I'm sorry. I was so stupid. I just -- I just started talking about how bad abortion was. I don't know. I forgot about your abortion or something.
Mimi: I wish I could, but I have to live with it for the rest of my life.. That's why I have to have the surrogate and can't give birth to our baby, which now isn't even our baby. Shawn, does it not bother you at all that Philip is the father of my baby?
Shawn D.: And that I'm having a baby with Belle? Yes, it bothers me. I can't stop thinking about how Belle and I were gonna have kids and a family when we were younger.
Mimi: I know that. Thanks for reminding me.
Shawn D.: But now I want a family with you, and only you. The reason I bring that up is because it's some sort of cosmic joke or something.
Mimi: There's nothing funny about it.
Shawn D.: No, no, it's not. I just -- I really want to ask you something.. How do you feel about all this? After everything that you have been through with the complications, the guilt that you feel to this day.
Mimi: Are you saying I should feel guilty?
Shawn D.: No, I'm not.
Mimi: Yeah, you are. Look, I don't want to ask our surrogate to abort the baby. That's not what she signed on for. I would never ask another woman to go through that unless it was her choice. She's supposed to be bringing a new life into this world -- our baby. But now it's Philip's baby. It's Philip's! We were so excited and hopeful, and now everything has fallen apart.
Shawn D.: Come here. Come here. Come here. It hasn't all fallen apart. We can still raise this baby together. We have so much love in our lives. Trust me on this. We can do this -- you, me, and the baby. We can be a family.
Belle: Okay, I get it. You're frustrated. We all are. You know, if your mom had asked Vivian Alamain to have an abortion when she was implanted with her egg, you wouldn't be here today.
Philip: Yes, thank you. I realize that.
Belle: You know, we just had the embryo transfer today. We may not even be pregnant. And you know the odds. We may not even carry it to term if I am. So just let nature take its course, and things will work out the way they're meant to.
Philip: "The way they're meant to"? You think this was meant to be?
Belle: That is so not what I meant.
Philip: What else is meant to be? What about in nine months when you and the surrogate give birth to healthy babies? What's meant to be then? What are we meant to tell Claire about who the father of her brother or sister is? Who gets custody of which baby? We are walking into a nightmare situation here that is never gonna end, and that is not what I want for my family.
Belle: That's not what I want for our family, either. I don't know what else we can do.
Philip: There's nothing else we can do! Belle, this is an impossible situation. Abortion is an option. It's the only option. And all I am asking is for you to consider it..
Lexie: Jack? Jack, it's Lexie. Can you hear me? Come on, Jack, come on. Talk to me.
Jennifer: I am so sorry. I hate doing this to you. I mean, I have two husbands right now. My gosh, I am so confused by everything that's going on, and I understand that you need answers. I do, but I can't even give those to you right now. So if you can't wait, if you want to leave, I understand.
Frankie: If I can't wait. I've waited almost my whole life for you. I love you.
Jennifer: I love you so much. You know that.
Frankie: I know. I know. And you know what? I'm sorry. I shouldn't be pressuring you right now. It's wrong.
Jennifer: No, it's not wrong. You have every right to know.
Frankie: This isn't the time to decide anything. I mean, right now, it's all about Jack. And you know what? That's the way it should be.
Jennifer: Thank you. Thank you so much. I don't know how I would get through any of this without you, Frankie.
Sami: God, the way we just left everything.
E.J.: You know, one definite silver lining to this whole thing is at least Will was staying with his grandparents.
Sami: Oh, thank God for that.
E.J.: And I really wanted to tell you, you were very, very brave. I was very proud of you.
Sami: Well, I just couldn't stand out there and let Lucas die. I mean, he would have done the same for me. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I can't believe it. It's another note! Stupid thing.
E.J.: Is it from him?
Sami: He's gonna destroy my relationship with Austin.
E.J.: He could still be in the building. Stay here.
Austin: I love watching you sleep. You look like an angel... so sweet. It looks like a little smile on your face, like you're having a happy dream. I always want you to have happy dreams... happy life. We really messed things up, didn't we? You know all those years that we were apart, I always had hope that our paths... would cross again... that we would be together someday. That hope kept me going through so many dark times. Now, seeing you lying... in the hallway, you know, so pale, so lifeless, I never felt so scared in my life. I could feel that hope just slipping away. I pray that I never lose you. Even if we can be... we can never be anything but just friends, I'll take that over the alternative. I don't know. I mean, but I still can hope that... somehow, someway... you'll come back to me. Maybe I'm just nuts. You chose Lucas, and I will never understand it, but I am gonna do my best to respect it. I mean, you're gonna have his baby. I shouldn't say this. I know it's bad, but you can't hear me anyway, so what the hell? Even though I'm engaged to your sister... I will always love you. Always.
Stephanie: Papa, do you think it's possible to love somebody before you ever really even know them? Not a crush -- I don't mean that -- but real love?
Nick: Uh, you shouldn't go to me about love. I think your mama would know better.
Stephanie: Mom and I talk about stuff all the time. Right now I'm asking you.
Nick: Okay. I think... yeah. I think when it comes to love, anything's possible. Is that what happened to you?
Stephanie: [Laughing] Oh, gosh, it makes me sound like such a dork. Yeah, he's a driver -- a race car driver. I've kind of looked up to him for a long time.
Nick: A bad-ass driver, huh?
Stephanie: He's the best. Of course, he's never raced me -- not when it counts, anyways.
Nick: You've raised a pretty confident girl here -- I mean, young woman here.
Kayla: And full of surprises.
Max: I don't want this to be like the last time. We barely even knew each other.
Chelsea: We knew each other.
Max: We had just met. And now I know you better, and I... I feel ashamed of how I treated you.
Chelsea: What are you talking about? Max, I wanted it, too.
Max: Chelsea, you need a guy who's gonna treat you right. I want you to understand that, that's the way you're supposed to be treated for the rest of your life. And I've just felt bad about that day ever since.
Max: Yeah. Look, I really care about you, and I want us to make love and not just sex. Is that what you want, too?
Chelsea: Yeah. Thank you for understanding.
Max: Do we have a condom?
Chelsea: You mean, do I? No.
Shawn D.: Come here.
Mimi: Shawn, there's nothing I want more than to raise a child with you. And I know that we still can.
Shawn D.: Then we agree.
Mimi: Yes. But... Belle is having your baby. I mean, do you have any idea how that makes me feel? You used to love her. You wanted to spend your life with her.
Shawn D.: Things happened the way they did. We can't change that. Are you listening to me? I mean, really listening when I tell you that I love you?
Mimi: And I love you so much, more than you'll ever know. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I want to go mountain climbing when we're 60. I want to take Italian together, do the laundry together.
Shawn D.: Laundry, eh?
Mimi: I just thought I would slip that in.
Shawn D.: You make me laugh. You're the most amazing woman.
Mimi: Yeah, a woman who will never be the mother of your child because there is no way I am ever going through this I.V.F. thing again. I'm so scared that this baby with Belle... is going to come between us and ruin all of our dreams.
Belle: I wish you would just have a little faith that everything's gonna work out.
Philip: Well, you're the one who's pregnant. I guess that just makes you see everything differently.
Belle: Yeah, you're right.
Philip: Plus, you're having Shawn's baby. And I'm just gonna put this out there. You're not exactly unhappy about it, are you?
Belle: I have never given you any reason to make an accusation like that.. We've talked about this. What else can I say? I'm just trying to make the best of the situation here, and you are going to have to find a way to do that, too. I'll see you in the morning. I'm going to bed.
Frankie: I married you because I love you, and I'll hang in there for the same reason.
Lexie: Jennifer, Jack's asking for you.
Nick: Wow, she's really something.
Kayla: Well, she certainly ran out of here quickly.
Nick: Come on, she just said she remembered something she had to do. I think maybe she was trying to give the two of us a little more time alone together.
Nick: You really did a great job. She's special.
Kayla: I have to say, I've never seen that look on her face before, you know, when she was talking about that guy she's crazy about. I wonder who it is.
Max: Maybe both of us not being prepared tonight is a sign that we're moving too fast.
Chelsea: Max, it's been forever since the last time that we did anything.. And that was the first time, and we didn't even really do anything. I feel like we're moving in slow motion.
Max: But, Chelsea, there's so much more that we need to learn about being together. Okay, I mean, have you thought about us being exclusive or anything? Have you given it a second thought?
Chelsea: Yes. Yes. Max, you're the only guy I want to be with.
Max: Sounds like a good place to start.
E.J.: Are you okay?
E.J.: Whoever it was, I can't find anyone.
Sami: This person says they're gonna ruin my relationship with Austin. I don't even know who's doing this. What am I gonna do, E.J.? I don't know what to do.
E.J.: Come here. Come here.
Lucas: What are you doing out here, man? I thought you were with Carrie. Why'd you leave her? Is something wrong?
Austin: No, man. I was in the men's room. I've only been gone a minute.
Lucas: I'm sorry. I overreacted. I'm just worried about her, you know?
Austin: Yeah, I get it.
Lucas: I'm gonna go sit with her until she wakes up. I know she'd like to see you, too.
Austin: Yeah, I'll be in, in a moment.
Lucas: All right. Honey, what is it? Are you all right? What's the matter? Should I get a doctor or something?
Carrie: No. I'm just so glad that we're both okay and the baby, too.
Lucas: Yeah. I love you.
Carrie: I love you, too.
Lucas: Easy, easy.
Hope: This baby is yours. This baby needs you, and I need you.
E.J.: You need to go to the authorities.
Sami: I am not telling the police.
Carrie: Austin, we need to talk.
Shawn D.: What is it? Has something happened to the baby?
Belle: No, but I think my marriage is over.
