Provided By Jim
Doug: Here is the list of attorneys that I promised you.
Jennifer: Okay, and, um, how do you know all of them?
Julie: We watch a lot of Court TV.
Doug: No, uh, we came to know them on various cruises.
Julie: You never know when you're going to need a good lawyer.
Doug: They are highly touted. They are successful, hard working lawyers.
Julie: I think you'd work best with Jeffrey Taylor. 's a brilliant, uh, fair-minded, and, well, by the way, he's also very good-looking.
Jennifer: Julie, that's-- that's the last thing I'm interested in. You know I just want to provide a safe environment for Thomas. That's it.
Doug: She needs a shark. Someone who will not shy away from making the hard choices. Lawrence Zabner.
Julie: No, not Larry. Larry's a pussycat.
Doug: With sharp claws. I have played poker with Larry Zabner. Trust me, he is not a pushover.
Julie: Jennifer, darling, are you sure you want to go through-- go through with suing for custody?
Jennifer: Wait, Julie, I thought you were on board.
Julie: Well, I think maybe just one more time you should try to speak to Chad. Logically.
Jennifer: No, I can't. That is not going to work. He is incapable of hearing reason right now.
Julie: Well, honey, by now he may have cooled off.
Chad: What the hell do you think you're doing?
Justin: Roman. Got a message that Hope was bringing in Aiden. Where is he? Have you taken his statement?
Roman: I'm letting Hope have first crack at him.
Justin: But that's not a good idea.
Roman: Look, Justin, I don't care if you don't approve, all right? She needs--in fact, she deserves to do this by herself.
Hope: Just... shut up.
Hope: I know you lied to me. And I still let you back into my life. Because you promised that you would never do it again. But you... you were lying even then. It was you that night. Our wedding night. You. Right up until the end. You said "I do" to me. Then you came home with me to end my life.
Aiden: Please, let me--
Hope: Please. Shut up. If you're afraid of what I want to do to you, you just wait until Rafe finds out. He will make you wish that you never came back to Salem.
Chad: You're really suing me for custody of Thomas? Are you kidding me?
Jennifer: Chad, we have already been over this.
Chad: Okay, well, we're going to go through it again.
Julie: Uh, maybe--maybe you two should, uh, take a day or so to digest the situation.
Chad: And maybe you should mind your own damn business.
Doug: Maybe you should watch your tongue, Chad. That's no way to talk to Julie.
Chad: So, I'm so--you're right. I'm--I'm--I'm sorry. You're right. Things have just really built up and I-- I'm sorry. But of I could just please have one minute to speak to Jennifer alone. I promise that there won't be any more outbursts.
Jennifer: Yes, it's fine.
Julie: Okay. We'll be upstairs if you need us.
Doug: All right.
Jennifer: Thank you.
Doug: But I warn you, I hear one raised voice, you're out of here.
Chad: Look, I'm--I'm-- I'm sorry. Okay, we should--we should definitely speak rationally about this because when you came to see me earlier, things--things got a little heated.
Jennifer: Yeah. That was unfortunate.
Chad: And, you know, there's--there's obviously a lot of intense feelings about this, and when that happens, people tend--people tend to overreact.
Jennifer: No, yeah, I-I completely agree. Please, sit down.
Chad: Yeah, I mean, you know, things--things are said and decisions are made off the cuff. And there's no real thought I am so glad you understand that.
Chad: Yes, I-I do.
Jennifer: Then are you saying that--that you were wrong to reject my offer to take care of Thomas?
Chad: What? What, is that--is that-- is that adding me? I mean, you're the one that's-- you are the one that's wrong
Chase: Uh, yeah, I'm fine.
Ciara: You don't seem fine to me.
Chase: I just hate this place is all.
Ciara: So did Abigail. But the doctors and staff, they're just trying to help. I know it might not seem that way, but they are--
Chase: I don't need a lecture right now, okay, Ciara.
Ciara: That's not what I'm doing.
Chase: Just drop it. Why are you even talking to me?
Ciara: Because you and I, we need to get something straight.
Hope: So... what do you have to say for yourself? You were so eager to get a word in a minute ago. Now you can't say a damn thing? Guess you need me to throw the huh?
Aiden: What proof?
Hope: Remember when we went to the hospital to have blood tests for our-- our marriage license? Remember that? Actually, you know what's really funny, Aiden? Is that we actually joked about it being bad luck for you to see the bride on our wedding day. But it was something we wanted to do together. We talked about having a wonderful life together, you and me, Ciara and Chase. Sorry, I just forgot. Forgive me. You're not supposed to remember any of that.
Aiden: What are you talking about?
Hope: Shawn dug up those test results, Aiden. That blood was yours. That guy I married wasn't an impostor. It was you. You lied to me. You said that you were kidnapped right after you proposed, but that was just another lie.
Hope: Wait. You were going to kill me.
Aiden: No, no, no, no.
Hope: Yes, you were-- You were there that night.
Aiden: I wasn't--Hope, I was not going to kill you.
Hope: You were there that night. You were going to kill me. Why am I even bothering to try to get the truth from you now?
Aiden: No, no, please, Hope. Please don't go. Please don't go. Yes, yes, yes, yes. Yes, you were right. I was there that night. Yes, I was. And yes, I lied to Roman and Rafe and everyone. And worst of all, I lied to you and Chase and Ciara.
Hope: Damn you to hell.
Aiden: Everything I told you about how it happened was true. But yes, I-I-I lied to you about when.
Hope: Just a small detail.
Aiden: Yeah. I wasn't abducted weeks before the wedding, okay? I-I--it happened that night. Okay, I didn't lie to you about why it happened. They knew, Hope, they knew that I couldn't go through with it, okay? That's--I would never-- I would never try to kill you, and you have to believe that.
Hope: No, I don't have to believe anything.
Jennifer: Do you really believe that I have not thought long and hard about Thomas's future?
Chad: Oh, okay, well then-- then please explain to me how taking me to court and suing me for custody is in Thomas's best interest.
Jennifer: I have explained this to you so many times, Chad.
Chad: Why, because your house is stable?
Jennifer: It's immaculate, it's inviting, it's warm, it's loving.
Jennifer: Unlike your house when I was just there, Chad.
Chad: Yeah, wow, okay. So I gave my housekeeper a day off, so sue me.
Jennifer: Yeah, 'cause you're not capable of taking care of it. You're not capable of taking care of Thomas.
Chad: Oh, Thomas is cared for.
Jennifer: By an 18-year-old girl.
Chad: Ciara is great with him and he lights up every time-- every time he sees her.
Jennifer: I light up every time I see Ciara. That doesn't mean she has the wisdom and--and the know how to care for an infant. An infant who is missing his mother.
Chad: Yeah, okay, great. Speaking of his mother, how-- how do you think Abby's going to feel when--when she gets back and she realizes that you stole him from me?
Jennifer: That I stole him? Chad, really?
Chad: Yes, stole him from me after everything Abby and I went through with Ben trying to get our son back. I gotta--I gotta--what, now I gotta face losing him again to someone that I thought I could count on?
Jennifer: You can count on me. I can give him a loving, safe environment, Chad.
Chase: Yes, when you are sober.
Jennifer: Excuse me?
Chad: You're an addict, Jennifer. You're probably always going to be. I mean, what court in this country would ever hand my son over to you?
Chase: What do you mean we got to get something straight?
Ciara: You lied to JJ yesterday, when you said that you saw me in the reading room around the same time Abigail escaped.
Chase: Yeah, I did.
Chase: Why did I do it?
Ciara: Why get involved? You didn't have to say anything.
Chase: I know, but... he was practically accusing you of helping your cousin escape.
Ciara: I didn't.
Chase: But JJ didn't believe that. I mean, he kept pushing me to say that you had something to do with it, so I thought if I gave you an alibi, he'd get off your case. Did he?
Ciara: Back off? Kinda.
Chase: That's good. I'm glad.
Ciara: Glad? Because you helped me? Or was this all about helping you feel better about yourself?
Rafe: Help! Anyone? [Exhales sharply] [Exhales sharply] All right. Just gotta think. Hope. Okay. Aiden couldn't have done this. He was away with Hope. This is Aiden's place... Which he bought from André. Come on. Come on. [Grunting]
Hope: I don't.
Aiden: But you know that man Bo killed in your house that night, that wasn't me. You saw his face. Lo But, Hope, you know that wasn't me.
Hope: But you were there.
Aiden: I was.
Aiden: I was there because Stefano and André threatened Chase's life and I was scared. I loved you so much, okay? I couldn't go through with that. I still love you.
Hope: Don't--don't--don't Oh, God, do not say those words to me.
Aiden: And I want everyone in this room to know I do love you... With all my heart. [heavy breathing]
Hope: You took me to bed that night knowing that you were going to take out a tie and strangle me to death. The thought of us consummating our love... [Chuckles] makes me sick.
Aiden: I'm sorry.
Hope: Oh, not as sorry as I am. Oh, God. I want to know the rest. Every single word. over this whole addiction.
Chad: Yeah, for now. Maybe. But what happens when you're losing sleep because you have a cranky baby in the house? Or your back hurts from carrying around my son all day. Those pain pills are going to seem pretty tempting then.
Jennifer: Right, and I'm going to be able to resist them. I am. Because I go to meetings. And--and I have a wonderful sponsor.
Chad: Good, well, then I'm sure the judge will be happy for you. But is he going to risk placing my son with you, even when the best support systems can fail? You're a walking time bomb, Jennifer.
Jennifer: And you're a DiMera. With a family history of crime that goes back decades, so what judge in his right mind is gonna side with you?
Chase: I don't understand. How can me giving you an alibi help me?
Ciara: [Scoffs] Come on. You really gotta ask that? There has to be a part of you that thinks that if you do me a favor--
Chase: That what? Somehow gonna get easier between us? No, that had nothing to do with it.
Chase: Ciara, I know we have a long way to go before we could ever--
Ciara: Ever what? Ever what, Chase?
Chase: Look, I just wanted to... I just wanted to save you from being hassled.
Chase: Because I know what it's like to be pushed and pointed at and accused. And I thought if I could keep that away from you, then... just drop it, it doesn't matter.
Ciara: Yes, it does. You put me in a weird position.
Chase: How did I put you in a weird position?
Ciara: Well, now I have to back up your lie. Or tell JJ that you didn't see me in the reading room, which will give him even more of a reason to think that I'm covering something up.
Chase: Oh, well, I'm sorry. I didn't think it through, and I should have.
Ciara: I didn't want your help. And I didn't need it.
Aiden: I know it's painful for you to relive what happened that night, and it is for me too.
Hope: If this is going to be a cop-out, don't waste my time.
Aiden: It's not. It's not, all right? I'm sorry. I'm sorry about everything. I-I should have backed out. I never should have said "I do." I never should have gone back to your house.
Hope: Stop, just stop.
Aiden: I was just sca--
Hope: Stop, stop. And tell me what happened next.
Aiden: Okay. I went downstairs to change my clothes to make it look like I was the necktie killer.
Aiden: And I was supposed to go back up to the room.
Hope: Where are you, my love?
Aiden: But then you came downstairs looking for me, remember?
Aiden: And I saw you standing there, I just... you looked beautiful. Happy. That's when I lost my nerve.
Hope: [Scoffs] Only then. Not before.
Aiden: No, what I mean is I was--I had just been going through the motions. You know, trying to figure a way out. I wanted to run up there and tell you everything and plead with you to help me find a way to save Chase, but I-I--
Hope: But you didn't. You didn't do that.
Aiden: That's when André showed up with someone who looked just like me. Now, I know this is--this is hard to believe, but, I mean, it's the DiMeras. Haven't they ever done anything like this to you before? They wanted you dead. And they were going to have their way with or without me. Hope... somewhere along the line they realized that I didn't have it in me.
Hope: If they thought you didn't... have the nerve to pull it off, why didn't they do the switch sooner?
Aiden: I-I don't-- I don't know. I don't know. What I do know, I was injected with a hypodermic needle, and then I woke up in a-- in a cell all alone. I had to live with what I've become. I-I didn't know if you were alive or dead. I didn't know if I would ever see Chase again. I was--I was in a--I was living in a hell.
Hope: You? You were--you were living in hell?
Aiden: But you made it.
Hope: I only made it because of Bo. And he's dead. And you're alive.
Aiden: That's everything. That's the truth. Do you believe me?
Hope: What difference does it make if I believe you? Should I be grateful that you didn't go through with murdering me? Cashing my life insurance policy? That you just thought about it? You are a sociopath, Aiden.
Aiden: You have to understand how much I hated lying to you.
Hope: You never stopped lying ever. You don't deserve your life back. No. You thought lying to me would help me to forgive you. And sadly for me, it worked. It'll never happen again. And I will hate you... forever, Aiden Jennings. [door closes]
Hope: I haven't strangled him yet. Is Rafe in?
Hope: He needs to know about this. He needs to know that he was right about Aiden all along.
Rafe: [Grunting] Whoever... [Grunting] Ow.
Roman: Okay? What you have had to go through is beyond unfair. Most people wouldn't even be able to put one foot in front of the other. You wanted to believe the best in him. There's nothing wrong with that.
Hope: What I wanted to believe is that he was one of the good guys, Roman.
Roman: Because you were willing to give him another chance. Because you understood what he'd been going through. You understood the guilt.
Hope: Let's put him in lock-up.
Hope: I can't look at him any--
Roman: I had a conversation with Justin while you were in there grilling Aiden.
Hope: That doesn't sound very good.
Roman: Listen, there is nothing I would like more than to put that son of a bitch away for life. But I need something to charge him with. And right now, we got nothing.
Chase: I'm a screw-up. I ruin everything. I get it.
Ciara: No, you--don't get it. You have no idea how I'm feeling because you have no idea what it's like to have your control taken away from you.
Chase: What does this have to do with control?
Ciara: You took it away from me! You took it away from me when you raped me!
Chase: Shh, don't--
Ciara: And you took it away again when you lied for me!
Chase: Lower your voice!
Ciara: Why? Is this making you uncomfortable? Does it bother you to see who you really are?
Chase: Please stop it.
Ciara: I remember saying the same exact thing to you!
Chase: Make her stop.
Ciara: I remember saying the same thing to you, and you just pinned me down anyway.
Chase: Make her stop, please.
Ciara: Why should I? Huh? You didn't. You just kept going on through my screams and through my pain.
Chase: Make her stop. Stop!
Chad: [Chuckles] Yeah, you know, I should have known that you would go there. Yes, I'm a DiMera and my family may have a history of crime.
Jennifer: May have?
Chad: But I don't. I've never committed a crime and I don't intend to.
Jennifer: Mm-hmm. Just like EJ didn't intend to. Just like Kristen probably didn't either. Or Lexi.
Chad: Guess what, Jennifer? I'm not them.
Jennifer: Really? You say that now, but what are you capable of when you get really desperate, Chad?
Chad: Oh, what, you think I'm dangerous? Is that what you're saying? You think I got evil blood pumping through me?
Jennifer: Don't you tell me it hasn't crossed your mind.
Jennifer: Then why are you so defensive?
Chad: 'Cause I'm sick of being judged based on my DNA.
Jennifer: Maybe we have reason to. And if I had listened to my instincts and kept my daughter away from you, she wouldn't even be missing right now. that you're gonna regret.
Jennifer: Is that a threat?
Jennifer: A threat. Are you threatening me?
Chad: No, I'm not threat-- really, Jen? Are you--are you ki-- have you been listening to yourself?
Jennifer: I should listen to myself. From the moment Abigail got involved with you because it has been one horrible thing after another since you came into her life.
Chad: Are you kidding me? Yes, a lot of bad things happen, but those aren't my fault.
Chad: I protected her. I saved her from Ben when you did nothing.
Jennifer: Because he snapped and went crazy because you took my daughter away from him.
Chad: Are you kidding me? That is crazy.
Jennifer: No, that is crazy! And I'm not crazy!
Doug: Stop, stop it right now, stop it, stop it.
Julie: Stop it.
Doug: Chad, you are out of here. Now, gone.
Ciara: I'm gonna find someone to help you.
Chase: No, please don't.
Ciara: You can barely breathe.
Chase: I know, but I'm-- I'm gonna be fine. Just give me a couple of minutes.
Ciara: I don't want to be responsible if anything happens to you.
Chase: Look, they're just gonna give me more drugs, and I--it's just gonna make me worse that I am right now. I can barely think straight. And I need to. I-I need to see the threats.
Ciara: What threats? From me?
Chase: The patients, the staff, everybody.
Ciara: What are you talking about?
Chase: [Coughing] Ciara, they know what I did. They know why I'm here. I might as well have a target on my back. [Coughing]
Justin: Unfortunately, we can't charge Aiden with attempted murder if he didn't actually make an attempt.
Hope: Okay, how about everything else he did? He accepted bribes from the DiMeras. We can get him on collusion, conspiracy.
Justin: That will be very hard to prove now that Stefano
Hope: Justin, he added his name to my life insurance policy. How about that? You can't tell me that isn't fraud.
Roman: It was done electronically, so unless we can actually prove it was Aiden--
Hope: Roman, he admitted he did it for God's sake.
Justin: And when he recants, and he slaps a false imprisonment lawsuit on us, you know that's exactly what he would do.
Hope: You're scared.
Justin: No. Hope, I don't have a case. Aiden knows how to work the jury. And he's a brilliant liar. And there's the fact that the guy that did try to kill you ended up dead, remember? He's just gonna point this to the DiMeras and he's gonna walk.
Hope: Well, we can hold him for 24 hours. There's no way I'm letting him out of here. He's not walking today. If there's a charge that can stick, I'll find it.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Damn you, André! when was the last time you heard from him? Yeah, I already spoke to Gabi, and Eduardo. He hasn't been in touch with either one of them today. No, no, I--don't worry. I'm--I'm sure everything's fine. You know what, I'll tell you what. As soon as I track him down, I'll have him give you a call, okay? Bye.
Shawn: Hey, Mom, I heard they had Aiden in lock-up for 24 hours?
Hope: Yeah, Justin says they have nothing to charge him with, but you know what? There's gotta be something.
Shawn: I'm sorry I can't be more help. Look, I hated dumping all that stuff on you, but I just--
Hope: Hey, looking for Tate and Abigail, that's the most important thing. Any new leads?
Shawn: Unfortunately, no.
Hope: Let me ask you something, was Rafe pulled into the search? I haven't been able to get ahold of him.
Shawn: No, but I know where he went.
Hope: You do?
Shawn: Yeah, he was talking to me earlier about a property that Aiden purchased out on the county line.
Shawn: Yeah, he found out that Aiden went and visited André in prison more than once. Then he did some digging and he found out the property that he purchased was owned by the DiMeras. That's when he asked me to dig into the blood results.
Hope: This was all him, wasn't it? That's probably why he's trying to get ahold of me. Did you talk to Rafe after you got the results?
Shawn: Yeah, yeah, I did, I mean, the last time I talked to him; he was at the house.
Hope: You have the address?
Shawn: No, but I'm sure we can dig it up pretty easily.
Hope: No, no, I'll get it. You have enough to worry about.
Shawn: Are you worried about something?
Hope: No, I just want to get--I want to get the latest.
Shawn: Okay. All right, good luck.
Hope: Hey, Roman, I need to run, okay?
Roman: No, not now. We got a code three, bank robbery in the Glenville district. Need all hands on deck. [tense music]
Ciara: Feeling any better?
Chase: It usually passes after, like, 15 minutes or so. [Coughing]
Ciara: This has happened before?
Chase: A few times.
Ciara: Does Dr. Robinson know?
Chase: [Exhales deeply] There's no reason to tell her.
Ciara: But if you talk to her, then maybe she can help you with that.
Chase: And then the sessions will hurt like hell, and I'll still have the panic attacks. I'm saving myself a little grief by keeping quiet about this. [Coughing]
Ciara: Chase, that's not the way it works. The longer you keep it in, the worse it gets. Trust me, I know.
Chase: I thought you were in therapy with Marlena. Thought it was helping.
Ciara: We're talking about you, okay? Not me.
Chase: Just tell me you're getting better. Look, I know you don't owe me anything, but if I knew you were happy... so please give me something to hold onto.
Doug: Chad, I'm sorry. This is it. That's--go, go.
Chad: Okay, just--Jennifer. Jennifer, I know that you are upset. Okay, and that you are frantic about Abby, but you are not thinking straight. I love--I love your daughter. And she loves me.
Jennifer: Then tell me why she ran.
Chad: I don't know, but she didn't run away from me.
Jennifer: Well, then you can explain all of this in court.
Chad: Please don't do-- please, please don't do this.
Jennifer: You are not giving me any other choice.
Chad: Please do not take my son away from me.
Jennifer: You're not giving me a choice, Chad.
Chad: Are you kidding me? Do you guys not understand what is happening? She's not doing this for Thomas's welfare. She's doing this because she misses her daughter. And you are doing anything you can to hold on to any piece of her, but Thomas isn't yours to have. He's mine. And Abby's, and I'm gonna be damned if you're going to take him away from me. breath.
Jennifer: He's wrong. This is not about me. It's not about what I want. It's about Thomas. It's--it's about Abigail, and I know that she would want me to protect him.
Doug: Of course she would.
Jennifer: I just hope I'm up for this.
Chad: Belle, I think I'm gonna need a lawyer.
Chase: I don't need any long explanation. Just one word. Yes or no. Has the pain gotten any less?
Ciara: No. What I mean is, I'm not gonna do this. I'm not going to give you one more part of me. So you concentrate on your recovery, and I'll concentrate on mine. And don't ever speak for me again.
Hope: Rafe? Rafe, are you here?
Rafe: Hope? Hope?
Hope: Oh, God. Oh, my God, Rafe.
Rafe: Get out of here. Get out of here. The place is rigged to explode. Go.
Hope: No, I'm not leaving you here. I'm gonna get you out of here.
Rafe: No. Hope, no. Hope, listen to me. Listen to me. The wires, they run to the explosive. You do that, it's gonna blow this damn place sky high.
Hope: All right, we'll think of something else.
Rafe: Just go. Get the hell out of here. Just go. Now.
Hope: Not without you, I won't.
