Days of Our Lives Transcript Thursday 8/31/06 - Canada; Friday 9/1/06 - U.S.A.
John: Preliminary autopsy report wasn't much help. Somebody took one bullet to the abdomen, one to the chest, both at close range.
Abe: Which we pretty much already knew.
John: Mm-hmm. However, forensics did make one interesting observation -- her badge is missing.
Abe: So we could be looking for someone who wants to impersonate a police officer.
John: Maybe. Or her employer.
Abe: Who got word we were closing in and decided to take her out.
John: If in case she is guilty. But, hell...maybe now we'll never know.
Abe: Well, regardless of the motive, we got a cop killer out there that's still on the loose.
Tek: What are you guys talking about?
John: You haven't heard, Tek?
John: Eve Michaels was murdered last night.
Lucas: Hey, man, how you doing? Get any sleep last night? You kind of look like hell.
Lucas: Sorry. It's just I've been there, you know -- that first Sami post-wedding fiasco night is kind of tough.
Austin: I've been there, too. This was supposed to be different. I was sure it'd be different. I'm still trying to wrap my head around exactly what happened.
Lucas: I don't know what happened, man. I didn't see this coming, not in a million years. Sami's usually the one who's left at the altar.
Austin: Do you really think I did something to make Sami think that she's not good enough for me?
Lucas: No, you didn't do anything like that. You’re not falling for that "I'm not worthy" rant, are you?
Austin: I definitely know there's more going on than she's telling.
Lucas: Yeah. Oh, Lisa, can I get a coffee when you get a chance? Thanks. Look, man, I know Sami's got her insecurities of not feeling worthy, but not when she's marrying the man of her dreams. Something else is going on here. I just hate to think what that might be.
Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives.
Tek: I didn't know Officer Michaels all that well, but I know she had big plans for her future.
John: Well, like you said, she was ambitious.
Tek: Where'd they find the body?
John: Church parking lot. Two bullets at close range.
Abe: I'm surprised you weren't aware of that, detective...considering it happened on your watch.
Tek: I turned the operation over to Detective Post when forensics showed up. Roman wanted them called in after I discovered a suspicious figure lurking around the back of the church.
Abe: Suspicious figure?
Tek: The person got away so fast that I couldn't tell if it was a man or a woman, but we did get a good set of footprints. Anyhow, Detective Post had it until or so around sunset, I just took off to go meet L-- a friend.
Abe: So you left the investigation to meet Lexie.
Lucas: Thank you very much, Lisa.
Austin: I was so convinced that Sami had changed, that she really turned her life around. I don't know, Lucas. After that scene in the bridal room, after she bolted, it was like something was really scaring her and she wasn't thinking straight.
Lucas: When does she ever think straight?
Austin: I'm serious. It really seemed like she's gotten her act together, but she's been all over this karma thing, doing the right thing.
Lucas: That should have been our first clue something was wrong.
Austin: I hate to say it, but I think maybe you're right.
Lucas: You know what, man? She's changed. She's changed because of you. You're responsible for that.
Austin: What the hell happened?
Lucas: I don't know. I don't know. You know, I just got a thought.
Lucas: Maybe it was a test.
Austin: What do you mean?
Lucas: You know, a test to push you away, see if you'll come back, begging at her feet to prove how much you love her kind of test.
Lucas: Come on, man. She's got that in her. She thrives on that kind of thing. She's so insecure. She's insecure because of her old man, the way her dad abandoned her because Stefano broke up that entire family. You know for a fact that she's always been jealous of Carrie.
Austin: No, that's not what this is about. And I did beg and plead with her.
Lucas: You did? You got on your hands and knees and begged?
Austin: I'm not gonna get on my hands and knees. I don't think that would work anyway. But there's something that really made her...I don't know, scared about us, about marrying me. It wasn't a game. It was serious.
Lucas: Well, if that's true, there's only one explanation. I don't think you're gonna want to hear it.
Lucas: I don't know. You know what? I shouldn't mention this.
Austin: Just spit it out.
Lucas: I'm thinking about E.J.
Lucas: Yeah, E.J. I wasn't gonna say anything before. It didn't cross my mind until now, but yesterday...I have a feeling he was really starting to get to her.
Sami: Oh, my God, it's you!
E.J.: I'm so sorry. I am so sorry. I didn't mean to startle you.
Sami: Oh, my God. I had a nightmare.
E.J.: You're trembling.
Sami: It was just really scary.
E.J.: It's okay. I'm here, it's over. It's just a dream, okay? It was just a dream.
Sami: It seemed so real.
E.J.: You want to tell me what it was about?
Sami: I dreamt -- I dreamt that someone was trying to kill me.
Tek: I'm not gonna deny it. I did go to see Lexie, but it's not what you think.
Abe: You know, I couldn't care less what the two of you are doing.
Tek: Well, I think you're gonna care about this. John, you, too. Lexie told me that Sami got a threatening phone call just before her wedding, warning her in no uncertain terms not to marry Austin or else she'd be sorry.
Abe: Well, that explains Sami's sudden change of heart.
John: Wait a minute. How did Lexie of all people know about this call? She wasn't even at the wedding.
Tek: Well, how Lexie made it, so she and E.J. went over to her house last night and threatened her.
Abe: Come on, that's ridiculous. Now, why in the world would Lexie threaten Sami? I know they don't get along, but how could Sami think for one minute that Lexie would go out of her way to ruin her wedding to Austin? What reason would Lexie have for doing something like that?
John: Abraham...partner, there's something you got to know.
Austin: Okay, what do you mean E.J.'s trying to get to her? I mean, he's making a play for her and she's actually falling for it?
Lucas: I don't know. It's a theory, all right?
Austin: Based on?
Lucas: A feeling I got.
Austin: A feeling? That's it?
Lucas: Yeah, yeah, a feeling. You don't think it's weird that he's always hanging around you guys the way he is? Snake sense to me.
Austin: We all work together, Lucas. All of us.
Lucas: It's not about work. I'm telling you, man. It's about him being there at every opportune moment. You know what I mean? It's like he pulls a rabbit out of his hat for her. You know, he shows up as that knight on the white charger. It makes me sick.
Austin: You sound like you're jealous of him.
Lucas: You remember when he told you right before your wedding..."treat her right. I'll be watching you." Why the hell would he say that to you, huh?
Austin: I don't know. Man, I don't know. He's kidding. I don't know.
Lucas: I don't think he was kidding. I think he'll do anything to impress Sami. And to tell you the truth, that woman's in awe of him.
Austin: So what? He's got a lot going for him.
Lucas: Then he just offers his apartment so she can shack up the night before your wedding? What's up with that?
Austin: You know exactly what that was about. Sami's incredibly superstitious. She didn't want to see me before the wedding.
Lucas: She could have stayed with her mom. Or she could have stayed with her grandmother. You could have stayed with mom.
Austin: I know, it was ridiculous. And it was ridiculous that I let it happen, but the point was, it gave Sami peace. It was convenient. He offered.
Lucas: Of course he offered 'cause he wants to be there for her. He offers everything. He offered to drive her to the church. They barely made it there, man. They barely made it in time. Why? 'Cause of him.
Austin: So that was a lie? And he used that opportunity to work his English magic? I mean, what -- you know what I mean? So she would leave me at the altar and follow him? I mean, this is your theory?
Lucas: You can make fun of me all you want. You can even ignore me.
Austin: Do you remember when -- do you remember when you thought Samantha was having an affair with Brandon the night before your wedding? You remember that?
Lucas: Of course.
Austin: And the truth was she only had eyes for one man -- you. I just don't see how you could say that about her again.
Lucas: I know she loves you. I know she wants to be with you. I'm not pinning this on Sami. It has to do with E.J. He'll stop at nothing to get what he wants, period.
Austin: Look, I'm just gonna say the same thing that I told mom. They're friends, nothing more, period.
Lucas: All right, my bad. I shouldn't have mentioned it.
Austin: No, you shouldn't have.
Lucas: You got to admit -- they were gone a long time, a long time before that wedding. You got to wonder what really happened between them.
E.J.: Hey. You feeling better?
Sami: Not really. Man, E.J., that was the worst nightmare of my life.
E.J.: You said somebody was trying to kill you?
Sami: Yeah, I had this dream that this man was chasing me with a knife. Sounds stupid now, but no matter how far I ran or how quickly, he would always just be there. And he was flashing this big scary knife, and I really thought I was going to die.
E.J.: You're not going to die. It was just a bad dream. And if anyone did try to kill you, they're gonna have to get through me first, okay? I'll protect you.
Sami: You would?
E.J.: I would. Now, come on. Drink your tea. It'll make you feel better.
Sami: Um, I don't think so. Unless it's herbal, tea makes me jumpy a little bit.
E.J.: It won't make you jumpy. I guarantee it. It's actually my nanny's secret recipe.
E.J.: My governess.
Sami: You had a governess?
E.J.: I had a regular Mary Poppins, darling.
Sami: That's so cool. Did she have an endless bag of tricks?
E.J.: As a matter of fact, she did. [Chuckles]
Sami: And I'll bet she taught you a lot.
E.J.: Why do you say that?
Sami: 'Cause, E.J., you're always at the right place at the right time with the right thing to say to make everything better.
E.J.: Samantha...I really wish that, that were true.
Sami: Well, I guess there are some things you can't make better...like my life. You know, when I was a kid, I absolutely loved that movie. I mean, I wanted more than anything to have a real-life Mary Poppins to make all my troubles go away and -- though, of course, I would have traded it all just to have my mom back. But instead I wound up with John Black.
E.J.: I mean, I've met John. Seems like a lovely guy. Let's come up here.. Uh, you might enlighten me as to what exactly it is I’m missing.
Sami: No, he's a nice guy and everybody loves him, but the truth is he was a great dad to me when I was a kid. There's a whole long, complicated story, but the bottom line is he and my mom had an affair on my dad and I found out about it, and he and my mom had a daughter, Belle. And somewhere along the way... my twin brother and I, we started to feel like unwanted stepchildren. It's stupid. Look, I know I had a great childhood in comparison. I mean, I have a lot of happy memories, but I guess the affair my mom had with John made it impossible for me to trust people...ever.
E.J.: Well, you trust me, don't you?
Sami: Yeah. Yeah, I do. I talked about my childhood. How come you never tell me about yours?
E.J.: I just did. I just told you about my nanny, didn't I?
Sami: So, if you had a nanny, does that mean that your parents weren't around a lot when you were a kid?
E.J.: It's not uncommon in England to have a governess -- why don't you sit down -- especially when you go to boarding school at such a very young age. I was very lucky. I really did have a funny nanny. She used to make me this tea pretty much every day, and let me tell you -- there was no crisis that ever befell me that wasn't made better by this.
E.J.: Mm-hmm, absolutely. That's why I carry it around with me everywhere I go.
Sami: Wow. It must be some very special tea.
E.J.: It is. It is. Try it.
Sami: Wow, that is good.
E.J.: Told you.
Sami: Wow, what's in it?
E.J.: Well, let's see -- a spoonful of sugar.
E.J.: [Laughs] There's a number of different ingredients. The primary one being love, or at least that's what Nanny used to say.
Sami: Well, thank you.
E.J.: Breakfast, on the other hand, which, by the way, is getting cold, involved quite a considerable effort on my part.
Sami: Wow, E.J., look at all this. Thank you. Thank you so much for doing this for me.
E.J.: Well, I had a sneaking suspicion you might be a little bit down in the dumps this morning, so I thought I'd prepare for you the spécialité a maison -- toast.
Sami: Well, muchas gracias. I love it. Um...thank you for always being there for me.
E.J.: Well, I wouldn't thank me so quickly, you know. If I had stayed in bed this morning, I wouldn't have scared the living daylights out you.
Sami: Well, I know I overreacted. I was just being stupid.
E.J.: No, you weren’t. Look, I should have knocked before I came in. I just didn't want to wake you in case you were asleep.
Sami: Yeah, you know, I really remember locking the door last night before I went to sleep.
E.J.: You did lock the door last night before you went to sleep, but I used the spare key that you and Austin gave me in case of emergencies. And, again, look -- I know I shouldn't have, and I'm really sorry.
Sami: That's okay. Austin. I can't believe that we didn't get married yesterday. I can't believe...I spent last night alone and that we are never gonna be together again.
E.J.: You're really sure it's over between the two of you?
Tek: Okay, so, after you found out about us, Lexie wanted to come clean. She wanted to go tell, you know, Carrie and Austin the truth, but just as she was about to, she got a threatening phone call herself -- the same mechanized voice that called and threatened Sami. And it told her to keep her mouth shut or else.
Abe: Or else what?
Tek: Something bad would happen to you and Theo.
Abe: Oh, my God.
John: That's a threat we got to take seriously, Abraham. So for the time being, Lexie's hands are tied. So are ours.
Abe: My life's in danger... and so is my son's because of her stupidity. And she didn't even have the -- didn't have the decency to warn me.
Tek: She was scared to death, Abe. A few days ago, her biggest concern was if she was gonna lose Theo or not. Now she's afraid for your lives. I mean, she was just trying to do the right thing and not talk.
Abe: Well, she was still able to confide in you.
Tek: Yeah, and she was terrified even to do that, but she was so worried....especially after some other stuff that's gone down.
Abe: So what do you mean?
Tek: Lexie has reason to believe that the person who made those calls has it in for the Brady’s. She was especially worried that some kind of attack would take place during the wedding, which is why she told me and why I brought in all the undercover cops, eve being one of them.
Abe: So you think that Eve's death is related to these phone calls and whatever else.
John: Well, Abraham, you know that we're looking at Michaels in connection with the missing evidence against Chelsea. And that's another connection to the Brady’s.
Tek: Regardless, one thing is certain -- Lexie didn’t lie about that threatening call. There's a real danger out there to you and Theo, to the Brady’s, maybe all of us.
Abe: [Sighing] Oh, man. Oh. You know, I would really like to believe that Lexie's telling the truth, but these days, that is pretty damn difficult. And then I should have remembered -- I should have remembered from her past that she can't be trusted. She's a DiMera! And when it comes right down to it, she is capable of anything.
Tek: Son of a bitch. Don't talk about Lexie like that. I'll kill you.
Austin: I cannot believe that anything went on between Samantha and E.J. on the way to the church.
Lucas: I'm not saying it did. I think it's fishy the way they disappeared like that, and then she shows up at the altar with a complete 180.
Austin: Why are we even talking about this anymore? She explained it. His car broke down. Her cellphone wasn't working. She was really upset when she was late. You were there, man. You saw how determined she was. She said, "I can't wait, and nothing's gonna stop me."
Lucas: Yeah, I know.
Austin: Not only that, I mean, the only reason why E.J. drove her to the church in the first place is because Carrie had to go pick up Will from camp.
Lucas: You're right.
Austin: Even if this guy is secretly after her, which he might be, the only thing Samantha has been able to think about is walking down that aisle. Maybe I'm kidding myself, but I honestly believe something else besides E.J. stopped her from going through with the wedding.
Lucas: Maybe she thinks that you're still in love with Carrie.
Lucas: A few months ago, you wanted to marry Carrie. She's the woman of your dreams, your soul mate, and now you're marrying Sami.
Austin: I love Sami.
Lucas: Not as much as you love Carrie.
Austin: Lucas, Carrie is your wife. We're never gonna be together. There's no point in talking about this.
Lucas: I'm just saying that Sami deserves to be loved wholeheartedly.
Austin: Yes, she does.
Lucas: And if you really want her to be your wife, which it sounds like you do, you got to tell her, man. You got to make sure she knows that's exactly how you feel.
Lexie: Hey, Lisa.
Lisa: Oh, hey, Dr. Carver. Can I get you a table?
Lexie: Uh, no, I don't have time. Just a coffee and an egg croissant to go, please.
Lisa: You got it.
Lexie: Thanks. Hey, Lucas, Austin.
Lucas: Hey, Lexie.
Austin: Hey, Lexie.
Lexie: I hope I'm not interrupting anything.
Lucas: No, no, we're fine.
Lexie: Good, um...Austin, I heard about what happened with your wedding. And I just want to say I'm sorry.
Austin: Thank you, so am I.
Lexie: Well, really, you shouldn't be. Look -- I'm probably not the first person to tell you this and I'm sure I won't be the last. It may not feel like it right now, but Sami leaving you at the altar is the best thing that could have happened to you.
Sami: Of course, it's over between me and Austin.
E.J.: I’m just checking.
Sami: It has to be, because if Lexie tells Austin what I did to keep him and Carrie apart, Will, will never forgive me.
E.J.: I don't think that's true.
Sami: Well, I think so. So does Lexie, obviously. She knows it's the one thing that would make me give up Austin.
E.J.: You're really still convinced about that call, aren't you?
Sami: Well, it had to be her.
E.J.: When we went around to her house last night, she was pretty adamant she had absolutely nothing to do with it whatsoever.
Sami: Well, you didn't expect her to admit it, did you? Don't let Lexie fool you. She's a DiMera.
E.J.: From what I understand, that's bad?
Sami: Lexie acts like she's not one of them, but she is. She can't help herself. It's in her blood. That whole family...is a disaster. She went crazy practically a couple years ago, totally turned into Cruella De Vil. Besides, that doesn't matter now. Aside from you and Tek, nobody else knew about our little arrangement.
E.J.: That we know of.
Sami: But who else? I mean, nobody else would have a motive to make that call.
E.J.: Well, I don't necessarily agree with you there.
Sami: What do you mean?
E.J.: Offhand, I can think of a couple of people who wouldn't want you to marry Austin. Myself, for one.
Tek: You understand me? You understand me?
Abe: Let go of me, detective. I'm warning you.
John: That's a real bad move, Tek. You're gonna lose. Abraham, look, I know that things are...a little tense, to say the least, between you and Lexie, but...come on, man. You know how to do this. You got to get beyond . We got a situation here, and you got a dead cop on your hands.
Abe: Yeah, partner, thank you. At this moment, Tek Kramer is the least of my problems.
John: That's right.
Roman: Hey. Sorry I'm late.
John: It's all right. Gave me a chance to get Abe up to speed on things.
Abe: Yeah, it seems like a pretty complicated case.
Roman: That just got more so.
John: How's that?
Roman: Well, I was just in the AV lab going over surveillance tapes from Sami's wedding. I was hoping we might ha a shot of the killer.
Abe: And? Did you find anything?
Roman: I'm afraid I did. Something you're not gonna like.
Lucas: You know what, Lexie? This is really not what my brother was really into now. He's in love with Sami and Sami's in love with him.
Lexie: Well, she has a strange way of showing it. Austin, look, I'm sorry for your pain, more than you'll ever know. But you'd have been much worse off had you actually married that witch.
Lucas: You know what? That's enough.
Austin: Hey, hey, hey. Lucas, man, it's cool. It's all right. She's entitled to her opinions. She's got every reason to, you know, not trust Sami. She doesn't know her the way we do. She doesn't know that she's changed.
Lexie: Oh, please, come on. Sami hasn't changed. She's just as evil as she ever was. If anyone should know, it's me.
Lucas: Well, you know what? Thank you, Lexie, but we all know that you're not exactly unbiased when it comes to Sami. And you blame her for ruining your marriage, which really wasn't her fault, so please, do us both a favor, let it go.
Lexie: You know what? That either of you would waste your breath defending her -- you know, if you had just the slightest inkling of what sh-- uh...you know, Sami just still can't be trusted, okay?
Lisa: Dr. Carver, it's ready.
Lexie: Oh, thanks. Uh, put it on a tab, please. Thanks.
Austin: Wait a minute, Lexie. Wait a minute, back up. "The slightest inkling" of what? You said "the slightest inkling." What does that mean?
Lexie: Nothing, I -- like I said -
Austin: No, no, no. No, you were about to say something. What was it?
Lexie: Austin, I have no idea what you're talking about.
Austin: No, I think you do. You know something about Sami that you're not telling us. Now, what would that be?
Sami: Now? You're gonna tell me this now, that you don't think I should have married Austin? Why not?
E.J.: 'Cause I didn't think it would make you happy, and I still don’t.
Sami: You're wrong. He did, okay? Very happy. The happiest I ever was in my entire life is when I was with Austin.
E.J.: Were you?
Sami: Yeah. You know, he's good to me. He was understanding and respectful and he made me want to be a better person.
E.J.: Sami, listen to yourself. He made you want to be a better person. What about Austin loving you for who you are, okay? Not trying to turn you into somebody who you're not.
Sami: What are you saying? You're saying you don't think I'm capable of being a better person?
E.J.: No, I mean that you shouldn't have to be somebody else. I don't think it's any secret that...Austin wanted you to be your sister.
Sami: Not you, too.
E.J.: I'm sorry, but I'm just calling it as I see it.
Sami: Well, you know what? I don't know why everyone insists on reminding me that I am not my sister and that he is never gonna get over her and that she's the love of his life.
E.J.: Probably because it's true. And I know that hurts, and I'm really sorry, but you can do better. You deserve to be with somebody who isn't settling for second best or second choice, somebody who loves you completely and absolutely for who you are, not who they want you to be or who you wish that you were, and that man is not Austin.
Sami: And that's how you... really feel?
E.J.: In my heart.
Sami: Is that all?
E.J.: What do you mean?
Sami: Nothing. I don't know what I meant.
E.J.: You want to know if I'm falling for you, don't you?
Lexie: Uh...no. No, no, there's nothing about Sami that I'm not telling you.
Austin: Wait, wait, wait a minute. You said something about, like, if we only knew. Something like that. What does that mean?
Lexie: Um...I was -- I was just referring to, um, you know, the way that she blackmailed me, you know, threatening to tell Abe about my affair with Tek. Look, I know what I did was wrong, okay, and I don't blame Sami for the breakup of my marriage, but you have no idea how she tormented me, the pleasure she took in it, you know, how she just held it over my head day and night.
Lucas: She was worried about Abe, okay? She didn't want to see him get hurt. She was protecting him.
Lexie: That's how she justified it.
Austin: You're hiding something else. What is it?
Lexie: Okay. Okay, fine. I'll tell you. Um...it's my opinion as a medical doctor that Sami is pathologically disturbed. And you're very fortunate that she's out of your life.
Lucas: You know what, Lexie? I'm sorry, but you're not a psychiatrist, okay? You're a doctor. I don't think you're qualified to make those kind of observations.
Lexie: No, I may not be a psychiatrist, but I know the signs of a mentally ill person when I see one to a tee, okay? She's paranoid, obsessive, possessive.
Austin: Okay, okay, okay. Okay, that's it. That's it, that's it, that's it. I have stood here long enough letting you bad-mouth Sami. I'm not gonna listen anymore. You know what? I am really sorry that I invited you to the wedding, and I'm just glad that you had the decency to stay away.
Abe: You know, I'm not sure --
Roman: All right, hold on. Hold on. All right, this is what I want you to see.
Abe: Lexie. What is she doing there? I saw her before the wedding. She never mentioned that she was going.
John: I never knew she was there. I never saw her.
Roman: Yeah, for good reason.
Abe: What the hell?
Roman: Abe...I hate to point this out to you, but Lexie's actions are not those of a guest who arrived late and left early.
Abe: Yeah, her actions are... are suspicious, like she was up to something.
Roman: And given what we're dealing with here and Lexie's history, I got no choice but to treat her as a suspect. I'm sorry.
Abe: No, no. I understand. We all know what happened when she was under the influence of her father. We know the DiMeras hate the Brady’s, and Lexie hates Sami. Look, um...could you please... just remember that Lexie's Theo's mother?
Roman: Abe, I promise you, I will treat this with the utmost care, which is exactly why I think you should be the one to conduct the investigation.
Sami: Well, since you brought it up and since everyone else keeps bringing it up...are you falling in love with me? Oh, my God!
Sami: E.J., It's another note.
E.J.: I wonder how long it's been here. I didn't see this when I came in.. It's addressed to you.
Sami: No, I don't -- I don't want it.
Abe: [Laughing] Come on. You can't be serious. I mean, you're asking me to investigate my... my soon-to-be ex-wife.
Roman: Abe, I'm asking you to do this because I think you're the only one who really can.
John: I think you're right. If anyone's got the inside track, Abraham, it's you.
Roman: Abe, we need somebody in close, somebody that Lexie would trust, someone that she might open up to.
Abe: You know we're getting a divorce. I'm not gonna be able to draw her out over some long candlelit dinner some night.
Roman: Why not?
John: I think she'd be happy to have a nice, drawn-out candlelit dinner with you, Abraham.
Roman: It might take two or three, maybe more before she talked.
Abe: [Laughs] Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on here. Just a minute. Now, you're not suggesting that I...I start dating Lexie.
Lexie: Austin, I'm sorry, okay? Please, just forgive me, okay? The last thing I want to do is upset you.
Austin: A little late for that.
Lexie: Look, you know how much I adore you. All I was trying to say is....you deserve to be with a woman who truly loves you. That woman is out there, the one that you were meant to be with, okay? Don't give up on...on trying to find her, okay?
Lucas: You know what? The woman my brother's supposed to be with is Sami, and he's not giving up on her. Are you, bro?
E.J.: Sami, it's okay. Just take it easy. I mean, if you don't want to see what's in here, it's fine. I can get rid of this. I'll throw it in the trash.
Sami: Wait, no. Uh...no, you can't throw it away.
E.J.: Are you sure?
Sami: I have to know what it says. I can't keep wondering. Will you -- will you read it to me?
E.J.: You don't have to do this.
Sami: Yeah, I do. Besides, there's not left to take away from me, right?
E.J.: Okay. "Samantha, congratulations. You did the right thing by not marrying Austin. Now, there is just one last act you must carry out in order to keep your secret safe."
Sami: What is it?
E.J.: "You must hand over sole custody of your son, Will, to Lucas, and if you don't, you will lose him forever because he will find out."
Sami: What? I did everything that, that lunatic asked of me. I am not giving up my son. I can’t. I-I won’t.
Abe: [Laughs] Are you crazy? Do you know what you're asking?
Roman: Abe, by dating Lexie and getting the truth you her, hopefully we can eliminate her as a suspect in these threats.
Abe: But one of the threats was made against her.
Roman: So she claims.
Abe: She's the one who alerted Tek to the threats against the Brady’s. She's responsible for the police presence at the church. Now, why would she want the police there on hand to catch her red-handed, whatever the hell she was doing?
Roman: Because if she did want to kill a cop, then maybe she had eve exactly where she wanted her. Or maybe it happened in the heat of the moment. Eve saw her there. Lexie panicked.
Abe: You know, like I said, Lexie is capable of anything, but murder --
Roman: Abe, listen to —- I don't think she did it, either, but you know damn well we have to eliminate her as a suspect, and maybe, maybe she does have an alibi with Tek.
Abe: Yeah, right.
Roman: But...we have to find out why the hell she was sneaking around in that church, because right now, unfortunately, it looks like she's involved in this big-time.
Abe: So, what then? What if she's not guilty? Do I just toss her out like yesterday's news?
John: I'm afraid that's gonna be your call, partner.
Roman: Abe, listen to me again, okay? I know I'm asking a hell of a lot, but we got to get to the bottom of this before somebody else gets harmed. I need your help. Now, if you don't want to do it for the force, if you don't want to do it for me, do it for Theo, for your son.
Austin: You're damn right I'm not gonna give up on her. In fact, I'm gonna go over to Sami's right now and convince her to give us another chance.
Lexie: Oh, Austin, if she does, you'll regret it the rest of your life. I swear.
Lucas: You know what, man? We don't have to sit here and listen to this garbage anymore. Obviously, Lexie has her own agenda where Sami's concerned.
Lexie: Just listen to me, okay? Listen to what I'm telling you. Sami doesn't deserve you, Austin. Let her go. Please?
Austin: Goodbye, Lexie.
Lucas: It was a nice try, but Sami and Austin will get back together today. There's just not a damn thing you can do about it.
Sami: Damn it! Son of a bitch! I'm not gonna let him do this to me! This is my son we are talking about here! Yeah, he's mad at me now because I ruined another wedding, but he'll forgive me this time because he knows I have changed. He -- he told me he was proud of me....that he missed me. He's my little boy. He's my son. I-I-I can't lose him. I can't give him up.
E.J.: Sami, look at me. We're gonna figure out a way out of this, okay? Listen to me -- I'm gonna help we're gonna get through this together.
Sami: How? How are we gonna get through this? Because, obviously, Lexie or whoever is doing this, all they want to do is see me lose everything.
E.J.: Listen, I'm not gonna let that happen.
Sami: How? How are you gonna stop it?
E.J.: 'Cause I'm not going anywhere. I'm gonna be here for you, Samantha.. I promise you.
Roman: Listen to me, okay? What kind of message is that gonna give to your daughters if you don't do this?
E.J.: You never told me when Lucas asked you to tell me how happy you were in your marriage.
Carrie: Didn't I?
E.J.: No, sweetheart, you didn’t.
Sami: Carrie is in love with you. You are in love with her.
Austin: It's about time that we got back together the way it was meant to be.
