Episode #12181 ~ Kristen realizes how much of a threat Marlena poses; Eric wants to know why Nicole is quitting.
Provided By Suzanne
Sami: Hey, Lucas. I just walked in the door. I have to find Sydney's doll, and then we'll come meet you at the pub, okay? Well, we can't go to Chicago for an overnight without that doll. And you're not gonna tell the kids anything about the trip, right? Yes! Okay, fine. But I'm going to remind you another 12 times.
Stefano: No, no, no. It's not centered. It's got to be centered. Just a little to the left. To the left, that's it.
Sami: What the hell are you doing here?
EJ: So tell me, what was it like... to admit, under oath, that you lied for months to keep me from knowing Samantha's carrying my child? I mean, you, the standard bearer for truth, justice, and the American way. Samantha and I could barely stand to listen to it. It must've been humiliating for you too though, I would imagine. Though probably not as humiliating as being stuck in this bed, day after day, like a helpless little child.
Rafe: Amazing. You're still so threatened by what I had with Samantha that you can't even enjoy spending time with her. You gotta come here and get in my face. You know what? I actually pity you.
Justin: Have a seat.
Justin: [Clears throat] Adrienne, thank you for meeting me.
Adrienne: Are you kidding me? I was just so happy when you called. I know you're busy, even with Sami's trial being over. I just was hoping--
Marge: What are you two doing here, celebrating destroying my family?
Eric: What's wrong?
Nicole: Nothing. It's just there's something I have to do.
Eric: What is it?
Eric: Leave your job? Me?
Nicole: It's not something I planned. I got an offer, and it's a good one.
Eric: What kind of an offer?
Nicole: Well, I, uh, ran into an old friend--an old producer-- actually, you know, from the days when I was an on-camera personality, you know. And he said they miss my energy, and they want me back.
Eric: That's not what I asked.
Nicole: I think what would make me happy is not being here.
Victor: Judging from your expression and the casual way that you're handling that thing, I'm guessing we still have nothing.
Marlena: Victor, to use this, I've got to get close enough to Kristen to download information from her phone. She hates me more than anybody else on the planet. I tried once, I failed. I won't get a second chance. You have to accept that, clever as this thing is, it will not get us what we want.
Kristen: [Sighs] I want you to dispose of that thing permanently. And when you do, every last trace of that sex tape will be wiped clean.
Sarah: I would love to help you out, but problem is, this isn't the right flash drive.
Sarah: Oh, this isn't... the right...flash drive.
Kristen: You're kidding, right?
Sarah: [Laughing] Dead serious.
Kristen: Well, that can't be.
Sarah: I'm sorry, but it isn't.
Kristen: Wait, I don't understand. This is flash drive that you gave me.
Sarah: It looks a lot like it, but I'm the one who edited the phone video of you and that dude going at it, and I'm the one who loaded it on the drive, and that is a micro USB.
Kristen: Okay, you must be mistaken. I've only been in possession of one flash drive this entire time, and this is the one.
Marlena: I love Brady. You know I do. But my kids are going through some stuff right now, and I've gotta be there. I can't be running around, playing amateur spy.
Victor: Sami has been acquitted. What's the problem?
Marlena: It's Eric. He's going through something, and he won't talk about it.
Victor: He's a priest. He can talk directly to God about whatever it is.
Marlena: Wow. Wow!
Wow! You don't understand.
Victor: Oh, of course I do. You're ready to bail on a situation where you can do some real good, so you can sit around home, waiting for your son the priest to decide to confide in his mommy.
Marlena: I love the sensitive way you have with looking at painful situations.
Victor: I am looking at a calendar. And we are soon about to run out of time with still no way to stop this travesty of a wedding!
Kristen: Take another look.
Kristen: You could be wrong, right? Have you ever been wrong, ever, once in your life? Not even one time?
Sarah: I'm not wrong in this case. This isn't the same drive.
Kristen: Look, I think you're just trying to be difficult.
Sarah: If you want, I could show you.
Kristen: But if the video isn't on here, then... that means it's out there. It's--
Marlena: I found it on the ground. I was about to return it to you.
Kristen: Oh, my God. Some love to pretend.
Nicole: You gave me a job when I didn't know what to do. And I will never forget that. But I just--I just think I really need to move on.
Nicole: Oh, come on. It's not really that big of a deal. You can find another assistant, one that probably won't give you as much lip as I do.
Eric: I like working with you. You know, every morning, I look forward to seeing you.
Nicole: Don't say that.
Eric: Why not?
Nicole: Maybe I should be honest with you.
Eric: About what? Stop being so hesitant with me.
Nicole: It's just that you-- you mean the world to me, and I am so afraid that what I'm about to tell you is gonna turn you against me permanently.
Kristen: I knew it. I knew it! They were up to something. I knew Nicole was not drunk.
Kristen: See, she was in on this with Marlena.
Sarah: Who's Marlena? What are you blabbing about?
Kristen: You know what I need you to do? You just stay available, okay? Because I gotta handle something on my own, and I need some time. So you stay available for me. Do you understand that?
Sarah: Whatever you say. You have my number.
Kristen: Okay, so Marlena has it, Marlena has it. Why hasn't she done anything with it? Maybe she's waiting for exactly the right time to use it against me. Maybe she doesn't know what she has. Either way, she hasn't used it! So I still have time, and there's still hope. Oh, God!
Marlena: Why do I have to go skulking around... stealing information? Isn't that your area of expertise? I'm a psychiatrist, for God's sake, not an electronics wizard.
Victor: That's why it has to be you. Your inexperience works in our favor.
Marlena: I know nothing about flash drives. All I know is I wrote the book on Kristen. And if she sees me anywhere near her, her defenses will be way up.
Victor: Would it help if I said please?
Marlena: Oh, you could hire a 15-year-old computer wiz.
Victor: He wouldn't be family. That's why we have to do this. We have to bring her down ourselves.
Marlena: What do you mean-- what is this "we"?
Victor: Just hold on to that drive. Look for an opportunity, and I guarantee you one will present itself.
Justin: I can't tell you how sorry I am for what you had to go through, I really am.
Marge: Don't you lie to me. You don't give a damn about me. You and EJ DiMera crucified my husband so that the woman who murdered him could go free. All Timmy and I had was our memories of a good man, and you blew that to pieces.
Adrienne: Marge, let's just go somewhere quiet and talk about this.
Marge: Why, because you're too embarrassed to hear about all this in public? Huh? Because you should be. I thought you were a nice woman. But you were part of it.
Marge: Yeah. You were perfect, right down to the problems in your marriage. But you were working his side of it all along, weren't you?
Adrienne: No, that's not how it was, merge.
Justin: She's telling the truth.
Marge: Come on. You knew that video that led to Sami Brady being charged was gonna come out no matter what. So you cooked up a scheme to be the one who brought it to the special prosecutor.
Adrienne: No, I didn't do that.
Marge: He wanted you to look like you were on my side.
Justin: Mrs. Bernardi, your imagination is running wild. Adrienne is not your enemy.
Marge: I had to send Timmy to be with his grandparents. I had to protect him from all of these lies about his daddy. And I should be with him, but I stayed here to make people listen to the truth about my Joe.
Adrienne: Oh, God.
Justin: The truth about your Joe came out in the courtroom.
Marge: Don't you dare say that to me. I got in your way, didn't I? But you and the DiMeras, you had a job to do, and you got it done. You ruined my life. You've ruined my son's life.
Adrienne: Marge, please.
Marge: No, no. No. But I'm not gonna give up. People need to know the truth about Joe and all of you.
Sami: We should've burned that thing. We won't make the same mistake twice.
Stefano: Samantha, my advice to you is to calm down.
Sami: Oh, we're sharing advice now, are we? Well, my advice to you is to get some more life insurance. I think Cecily's going to need it. She's got too many miles under her belt too hook another sucker. Do you know what's gonna happen to you when EJ finds out you're here?
Stefano: Yeah. What's gonna happen is it's gonna be like a holiday, you see? You're free, and you're not being blamed for any wrong-doing. So you're gonna spend the rest of your life with your new husband your children.
Sami: We will be celebrating, but not with you. I'll damned if I celebrate anything with the man who tried to throw me in prison for the rest of my life!
EJ: Look, I didn't come here to harass you, I just came here to do the decent thing and let you know that Samantha and I are going to be married soon.
Rafe: Oh, really? And I would care why?
EJ: Rafe, you do care. Nobody really believes that one of my father's rejects has taken Samantha's place in your heart.
Rafe: Is that your crappy way of referring to Kate?
EJ: It is, actually.
Rafe: Leave her out of this.
EJ: Okay. Well, I certainly wouldn't want my news to interfere with your recovery. All of those self-help books do say that positive mental attitude is the key, even in the case of such demoralizing circumstances.
Rafe: Why don't you go home to your bride-to-be, hmm? Maybe you two will actually make it through the wedding this time.
Rafe: Go on to that happy life. That is of course if she doesn't decide to try and blow your head off again.
EJ: You have been a thorn in my side since the day you came into this town. But that's over. My only regret is that Samantha wasn't elsewhere when Bernardi came into your room.
Rafe: Yeah, you would've liked that, wouldn't you, if he was able to slit my throat?
EJ: Throat? That's hysterical. [Clears throat] Do you know what Bernardi was going to do with his little razor blade? He came here to put your junk in a box, so to speak. You should thank Samantha. She saved you from the ultimate humiliation. What a pity.
Sami: You know what? I'm gonna give you 30 seconds to take that monstrosity and get out! And then I am calling EJ.
Stefano: Go ahead.
Sami: Excuse me?
Stefano: You call up your beloved. Tell him that I am here. See how surprised he really is.
Sami: [Scoffs] Are you kidding me? When EJ finds out that you are in his house, he's go-- no. Oh, my God.
Stefano: [Laughing] By George, she got it! Ha ha!
EJ: My goodness, Rafe. Either you're making amazing progress, or you were faking your little performance in the courtroom to gain some sympathy.
Rafe: I keep telling myself that Sami deserves you, but really, no one deserves to spend the rest of their life with scum like you.
EJ: That's probably just the hospital wondering where I am. I have a board meeting to get to. Please don't let me stop you from your little rant.
Rafe: Oh. Trouble in paradise? Hope so.
Marge: Hey, EJ! EJ DiMera! Oh, my God. They got to you too, didn't they?
Nicole: You know, when you told me that you were a priest, I thought, ooh, you are never gonna make it. But I was wrong. And I respect you, and I look up to you, and I am in awe of what you've made of yourself.
Eric: Don't do this.
Nicole: But now there's something standing between us, and I cannot get past it. I can't. I thought I could, but I can't.
Eric: Nicole, just-- Nicole, just tell me. Tell me, and maybe we can try to work this out.
Nicole: Not this one. Fine, you know what? It's-- it's Kristen.
Eric: What? It's Kristen and Brady.
Eric: You are leaving because of them?
Nicole: You know how much Brady means to me.
Eric: And you know how much Brady means to me too.
Nicole: That woman is going to ruin his life. And they had this crazy idea of getting married here, and you didn't say no? You went along with it?
Eric: Okay, Nicole--
Nicole: And now you're going through pre-cana with them like they're some kind of normal couple, and you're putting your stamp of approval on their marriage, and-- okay, you know what? I'm sure that you have your reasons, and you're just doing what you think is best. But I cannot sit here and type and file and watch you condone a relationship that I know is gonna end up just hurting the guy that I care about. So now I have to do what I think is best.
Eric: Would it change your mind if I told you I did this to find out what's really going on between them?
Nicole: Sometimes, you have to do what is right, even if it hurts. Do you understand?
Eric: Yes, I am trying to! I am working with Brady and Kristen because my training tells me that there may be hope.
Nicole: Your training. Your training is wrong. In this case, it is wrong, dead wrong!
Marlena: Moonlighting as a locksmith, are you?
Kristen: I think for everyone's sake, we should have a little talk. Why don't you pull up a chair? 3q it's time to change the way we clean.
Kristen: You're not sitting.
Marlena: I don't need to. You won't be staying that long.
Kristen: Well, that depends on you. We have a situation to deal with.
Marlena: A situation?
Kristen: Please don't be coy with me. I mean, it is me sitting here.
Marlena: I have no idea what you want.
Kristen: Okay, well, you know that, uh--that truce that you offered me a few weeks ago?
Marlena: [Laughs] What, are you kidding?
Kristen: No! Not at all. Oh, Sami's been cleared, and she's going on with her plans to marry my brother. I'm marrying Brady. We're going to be family. So I thought it would be amazing if we could collaborate together on an engagement party.
Marlena: You want us to plan a party.
Kristen: Yes, absolutely. Chad and Sonny, they converted their coffeehouse into a fantastic club. It would be a great space for it.
Marlena: So that's what this is all about.
Kristen: Yeah. What else would it be about?
Marlena: Dr. Evans. No, no, it's okay. I'll do it right now. Thanks. Well... sorry. I've gotta step out for a moment, so we can do this some other time.
Kristen: That's okay, you go do your thing, and I'll wait right here for you.
Justin: How are you holding up?
Adrienne: I'm okay, I guess.
Justin: You certainly didn't deserve any of that. I understand how she feels. If anybody had come after you the way you went after Joe Bernardi-- but that would never happen. Because you're a very good man, Justin. And Joe Bernardi did the things you said he did.
Justin: Well, she just didn't wanna face that. She was looking for someone to blame.
Adrienne: Mm. But I'm not blameless. I screwed up big-time, Justin. I should've come to you right away with that video.
Adrienne: No, please. Let me finish. I was too proud, too stubborn to admit that I'd done something wrong. [Sighs] So I said I didn't trust you to look out for Sonny. I just--I don't know what happened to me.
Justin: You were worried about my association with EJ and Sami. And you were right to worry. They misled me every chance they got.
Adrienne: Okay. We're both a couple of screwups. Where do we go from here?
Rafe: Okay. I know what you're dealing with right now.
Marge: Did you lie for them?
Marge: The DiMeras in court. I saw EJ coming from this room. Was he here to pay you off?
Rafe: Okay, listen. You need to sit down, because you're not thinking straight.
Marge: You did, didn't you? You lied. You know, I still have Joe's phone, and I read every text message between you and him. Yours always sounded so nice and friendly. You had him thinking you were one of his best friends on the force. And how do you return his friendship? By lying about him in court so that your slut of an ex-wife--
Rafe: Listen, listen. You need to stop right now, okay? I know that you're going through an awful time.
Marge: Sure, you do. Sure, you do, because you helped make it that way. My life is a total wreck! And it's all because of Sami Brady, the DiMeras, and you!
Rafe: Ow! Okay, you just need to just stop, stop.
Jordan: Get away from him right now!
Marge: How could you--
Jordan: Stop it! Stop!
Marge: Get your hands off me! Get your hands off me!
Sami: This can't be happening.
Stefano: Yet perhaps it is.
Sami: No. No, you are messing with me. You've talked your way back into this house, and now you are just trying to talk me into believing that EJ was in on it. There is no way that he would make that kind of deal with you without telling me, without warning me.
Stefano: [Laughs] Well, you two had other things to talk about.
Sami: You are out of our lives. You are out of this house. EJ made sure of that because that is the only way that--
Marge: You said you were his friend.
Jordan: Calm down.
Marge: And then you lied.
Jordan: Okay, get yourself together.
Marge: How much money did the DiMeras give you?
Jordan: All right, that's it. I'm calling security.
Rafe: No, don't. She's been through enough. There's no need for security, right, merge? It's over, right? You okay now?
Marge: I'll be going now.
Rafe: Why don't you sit? Marge? Why don't you sit, pull yourself together?
Marge: You shouldn't have done that to Joe. You said he was your friend.
Jordan: You okay?
Rafe: Doing a hell of a lot better than she is.
Stefano: I'm sorry about this, Elvis, but, uh... I thought you had told her everything.
Sami: What's everything?
EJ: Samantha, I was going to explain this to you tonight in Chicago after we put the children to bed.
Sami: You were taking me out of town to tell me everything. Why? Because you thought that when I found out, I would kill him?
EJ: No, I just--I thought that it might be a little easier for you to digest the news.
Sami: How long have you known? How long?
EJ: Since the day you were cleared.
Eric: You and I have a serious disagreement, and I-- I hear what you're saying, and... you, uh--you're a permanent fixture here.
Nicole: Great. You can just screw in a 100-watt bulb in my ear, and I'll light right up.
Eric: No, no, no. That's--you don't understand. I--I-- I'm saying this badly. You-- Nicole, we're a team. I don't know what I'd do without you.
[Knocking on door]
Eric: Louise, come in. How are your fractions going?
Eric: That's great.
Louise: Sister says that the radiator's leaking.
Eric: Can you tell the sister that I'm a bit busy? And I'll call the maintenance man.
Nicole: Uh, Louise is in sister Annabel's class. You know she's not gonna settle for the maintenance man. She'll want you.
Eric: I'll be right back. Here we go.
Matt: Nicole? What's wrong?
Kristen: She has to have it in here someplace. From the way she was acting just now, she doesn't have a clue as to what's on it. God! If I can just get my hands on it, I'll be home free. Oh, my God!
Justin: During the trial, EJ pulled every trick in the book to make the evidence go Sami's way.
Adrienne: So why didn't you quit?
Justin: Well, the lawyer part of me wanted to, but the husband part of me understood why he was doing it. He was trying to save the woman he loves. And if you or any one of my boys were in that kind of trouble, I would've probably broke the rules too. Not probably. I would've done whatever it took.
Adrienne: So there's no guarantee that we both won't screw up.
Justin: Yeah. Yeah.
Adrienne: Okay, so... what do we do?
Justin: [Sighs] You know the thing about where I'm staying?
Adrienne: At the club?
Justin: The coffee sucks.
Adrienne: I'm outraged.
Justin: And your coffee's perfect. So I was thinking about moving back to Victor's house with you.
Adrienne: For the coffee?
Justin: Yeah. And the 8 million other things that you do better than anyone else.
Adrienne: You do a lot of things right too.
Justin: What if we just start by concentrating on that?
Adrienne: We don't know what lies ahead, Justin. We could go off the rails again.
Justin: But I'm in if you are.
Matt: I'm sorry to hear this. You've been such a positive presence here. You know, there's other jobs in the parish, one that doesn't involve office work.
Nicole: No, I-- Eric will still see me as his responsibility, and it's just he's got too much on his plate.
Matt: Has he talked to you about what's troubling him?
Nicole: Yeah, I-- I did what you asked, I stayed out of it.
Matt: I do think that's for the best.
Nicole: Me too.
Matt: Well... what's in the past is behind us. What matters is the present.
Matt: Well, dear... we'll miss you around here.
Nicole: Thank you. I'll miss being here too.
Rafe: It's okay, you don't have to do that. I'm all right.
Jordan: Sorry. Nervous habit. So that, uh--that woman was the wife, right? The man who came in here with the razor?
Rafe: Was her husband. Yeah. She was a good wife too, good mother. Didn't do anything wrong, as far as I know. Yeah. Only fault was not seeing that her husband was a dirty cop and was cheating on her.
Jordan: Yeah, it can be really hard to see something like that about someone you love so much.
Rafe: Yeah. Well, all she knows is her husband's dead and her life's hell. If she wants to make that my fault, I'm okay with it. She's got it worse than I do.
Stefano: You two have a lot to talk about.
Sami: Okay, so I asked you. The day I was acquitted, I asked you what you did to make that happen, and you didn't mention any of this!
EJ: Because I wanted you to enjoy your freedom with the children.
Sami: Before you dropped the bomb. Do you know what it felt like to walk into our house and to see him standing there? Without any sort of warning, he just-- okay, just--just wait. Just-- Abe testified that there had been an anonymous tip. Obviously, that was because of Stefano. And they only found that razor in Bernardi's girlfriend's apartment... because you had to make a deal with that bastard.
EJ: It was that, or you went to prison for the rest of your life, Samantha. I didn't have a choice.
Sami: So he got his house back. What else did you have to give him?
EJ: Come on. Let's go and see the children, darling.
Sami: Just tell me.
EJ: Everything. I gave him back everything.
Marlena: Oh, dear. You still haven't found what you're looking for. Well, I would invite you to stay, but, uh, I got a pretty full patient load. Plus, I've gotta get to a meeting outside the office.
Kristen: Okay, well, don't wait too long. I think between the two of us, we could throw Sami and EJ a party they're never gonna forget.
Marlena: You're up to something, but it is not a party.
Eric: What are you doing?
Nicole: What does it look like?
Eric: Did you accept the job offer?
Eric: Can I ask you a favor?
Eric: Sleep on it. Just take 24 hours, whatever you-- whatever you do, I'll go along with what you decide.
Nicole: Okay. But I would like the rest of the day off.
Eric: You know, I had a thought. Are you leaving, so you don't have to listen to me ask you about what happened that night at the capital?
Eric: Because every time I bring it up, you always come up with an excuse about how you can't talk about it. And now you're talking about leaving permanently.
Nicole: I don't talk about what happened the night at the capital because I don't know anything, all right? I just--I don't!
Eric: Then why does it get her so upset?
Victor: Well, what happened?
Marlena: Remember telling me that an opportunity would present itself?
Marlena: Mm-hmm. I walked into my office, and Kristen was sitting behind my desk. [Laughing]
Victor: Going through it, no doubt.
Marlena: No doubt!
Victor: Well, what'd she say she wanted?
Marlena: Oh, she wanted us to plan an engagement party for Sami and EJ.
Victor: You bring the champagne punch, and she'll bring the strychnine. You think she's onto you?
Marlena: I don't know. I told you how clumsy Nicole was when she was trying to cover my tracks as I went through Kristen's purse. I think we'll just have to be very careful from now on.
Kristen: What the hell? What took you so long?
Sarah: Do you have the drive? The right one, I mean?
Kristen: No, but I saw who has it, and they could ruin everything for me.
Sarah: What are you gonna do?
Kristen: Whatever it takes.
Sarah: [Laughs] I mean, within limits, right? I mean, it's not like you're gonna like, you know, kill anybody. Right?
Jordan: Well, I had you scheduled for an afternoon session, but you were pretty beat up after this morning's workout. And after what just happened--
Rafe: I can do it. I don't know if you know this, but I wanna get the hell out of here and back on my own two feet again, okay? I need to be 100%. There's somebody I have to deal with.
Sami: I can't believe you had to give him back everything.
EJ: Samantha, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Sami: I'm sorry.
EJ: Don't be.
Sami: It happened because of me.
EJ: No, it didn't, Samantha. Look, you were the person who happened to take Bernardi out, but he was there on my father's orders. There's something you should know. The razor blade disappeared on my father's orders.
Sami: He was willing to send me to prison for the rest of my life just to get you to do what he wanted? Well, screw him. And who needs this place anyway, right? Let Stefano live here in this mausoleum with his whore. You and me and the kids-- as long as we stick together, everything will be fine. So you know what? The first order of business is gonna be to get as far away from your father as we absolutely can. I never wanted to live here anyway. [Laughs]
EJ: Samantha, where are you going?
Sami: To pack! We're packing for more than just an overnight in Chicago. Come on.
EJ: I'm sorry. I can't let you do that.
