Xander: [Groans quietly] Oh, god, please tell me we didn't get hookers.
Xander: [Panting] Jeez, woman, my head! Just keep it down a little.
Sarah: What in the--
Kristen: Good morning, sunshine.
Claire: I'm sorry, grandpa, but I wish I knew more. Ciara's still in surgery. I know, I know. It's been a really long time, but kayla promised that she'd let us know as soon as it was over. Yeah, of course. I'll let you know as soon as we know more. I love you, too. Okay, bye.
[Elevator bell dings]
Ben: Dear god... I am so grateful to you for bringing ciara back to me. And maybe after all of the things that I've done in my life, I don't get to ask for any more miracles. But she's so badly hurt.
[Sniffs] Ciara is the bravest, kindest, most generous person I have ever known, and she does not deserve to die, not like this. So if I may ask one more thing of you, god, is that if you can, please just spare her life, please?
Marlena: I don't want to disturb you. I just thought you might want some company.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Claire: Oh, my god, theo! I am so happy to see you, but I-I didn't know that you were in town.
Theo: I came for jules' and carver's christening. I have to meet my little niece and nephew. And not to brag, but, um, you're looking at jules' godfather.
Claire: Well, she is a very lucky little girl. But why are you here and not spoiling her rotten?
Theo: I heard about ciara. Is it true she's alive?
Ben: Have you heard anything?
Marlena: Well, I-I talked to claire on the way in. Ciara is still in surgery.
Ben: [Sighs] It's been hours. What's taking so long?
Marlena: Well, I don't know. In my experience, these kind of cases, no news is good news.
Marlena: Ben, my goodness. You should get checked out.
Ben: I did.
[Coughs] Last night.
[Sighs] It was just all the smoke and dust.
Marlena: You know, I didn't hear a lot about what happened, but... from what I did hear, you-- you were a hero.
Ben: I'm not a hero. I was just focused on ciara, trying to bring her home safe.
Marlena: Well, she's home.
Ben: But she's not safe, dr. Evans. She's laid up on that operating table, and I don't know if she's going to live or die. So I can't celebrate, not until this nightmare is over, and ciara opens her eyes, and she says my name.
Julie: What are you doing here? Who let you in? And how--how are you winding up naked?
Jack: What is going on down--oh. Oh, julie, julie, I--
Julie: What is this? What is this nude neanderthal doing on my sofa?
Xander: It's my wedding day.
Julie: That explains nothing. I'm not talking to you. What is he doing here?
Jack: It's his wedding day.
Julie: So he said.
Jack: Ergo, um, last night was his bachelor party which may or may not have gotten somewhat out of hand. Uh, I want to make sure that he makes it to his wedding on time.
Julie: How gentlemanly of you, jack. Why did you deposit him on my sofa?
Xander: Because he's my best man.
Sarah: Kristen... what did you do? Where are we?
Kristen: Mm, this is the dimera basement.
Sarah: [Sighs] We were at basic black.
Kristen: Until you gave me a hard time, and then I really didn't have a choice, sarah.
Sarah: Did you knock me out?
Kristen: Paperweight, sorry.
Sarah: Oh, my god, see? This is exactly what I was talking about, poor impulse controls!
[Both sighing] All right, come on. Come on, let me go. I'm getting married today.
Kristen: [Laughs] Sorry, again. Oh, I am afraid I can't let that happen.
Sarah: What do you mean, "you can't"?
Sarah: All right, look, just... untie me. All right? And I will forget that any of this ever happened. How's that?
Kristen: Wow, the thing is, is I can't trust that. I mean, the only reason I-I knocked you out is because you were about to blab to brady that I switched places with susan banks.
Sarah: And now that I've had some time to reconsider, I am going to respect your wishes, and I'm just-- my lips are sealed.
Kristen: Unfortunately for me, uh, you have too many scruples.
Sarah: Scruples, they're overrated. I can give up a few. Now, please, come on, just untie-- it's my wedding day.
Kristen: Yeah. Or you can take this opportunity to rethink that decision.
Sarah: God, why would i do that? I love this man, and he loves me. Kristen, please?
[Sighs] If I don't show up, you know he's going to come looking for me. You know how determined he is. So what are you going to do when he walks through that door? How are you going to keep my mouth shut then? Because there's going to be a lot of questions. I mean-- and I'm going to have no problem telling them the truth about what you've been up to.
Unless-- oh, dear god, are you going to kill me?
Julie: Will you kindly put your clothes on and leave? You wouldn't want to keep your poor deluded bride waiting, would you?
Jack: I think because of time, maybe it'd be best if you just grab a quick shower upstairs.
Xander: Oh, I was really hoping for, you know, a little hair of the dog.
Jack: Uh, shower first.
Xander: Yeah, that's a good idea. Okay.
Jack: Upstairs, second door on the right--
[Phone ringing] Uh, deveraux. Uh, yeah, deveraux, deveraux, right here, right here.
Xander: I'm not gonna bite. Here.
Julie: I might as well burn this.
Xander: You're not much of a morning person, are you? Got you.
Julie: I don't suppose you know a good upholstery cleaner.
Jack: I-I don't believe it.
Julie: Grandma alice's antique sofa. I may as well just trash this and buy a comfortable one.
Jack: No, it's-- it's not the sofa. It's the newsroom. They--they just called.
Julie: What--what is it?
[Sighs] Ciara... she's alive.
Theo: So ben got evan frears to take him to ciara?
Claire: Right, but when they got there, there had been an explosion. Ben had to dig ciara out of the rubble. He carried her all the way here.
Theo: So where was ciara being held? How did the place explode?
Claire: I don't know.
Theo: You didn't talk to her?
Claire: No. Nobody has. Ciara didn't regain consciousness before she went into surgery.
Theo: So she's badly hurt.
Claire: Internal injuries. Kayla's been operating on her since last night.
Theo: Ben must be going out of his mind. Where is he?
Claire: He's in the chapel, praying.
Ben: I pulled back the curtain, and there it was. The glass room just as susan described, the same one from my dreams, except it had been completely destroyed, like there was some kind of an explosion.
Marlena: Oh, my word.
Ben: I knocked out evan. It was the only way I'd be able to search for ciara. Then I started digging. I just clawed my way through all this debris until I didn't think I could keep going on.
Marlena: Somehow you found the strength and the courage to do just that.
Ben: Ciara gave me the strength. I found this, the exact same book she was holding when I saw her in my dream, "through the looking-glass." That's when I knew that she was there with me. I knew she was there, reaching out to me, guiding me to find her. Does that sound crazy?
Marlena: Not at all.
Ben: You know, this was ciara's story, too. She went on this weird, terrible journey just like alice. She went through the looking-glass.
And you brought her home.
Ben: I just pray to god she lives.
Kristen: Killing you is certainly a more elegant solution than keeping you locked up here for all eternity, but honestly, I am not a killer.
Sarah: Well, I'm sure that haley chen would disagree.
Kristen: Oh, my god! Again, that was an accident, and I've regretted it every day since. And--and then you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, like haley, but I know that you don't deserve to die.
Sarah: Neither did she!
Kristen: Okay, you are really testing my patience right now.
Sarah: Right back at you, buttercup. All right, well, if you're not gonna kill me-- thank you, by the way-- and you're not letting me go, what are you gonna do with me?
Julie: It's true, really true. Ciara is alive?
Jack: Ben found her last night, took her to university hospital.
Julie: The hospital? Why?
Jack: Well, apparently there--there was an explosion.
Julie: Oh, no.
Jack: Kayla's operating on her right now.
Julie: Okay. Well, if kayla's there, it's gonna be all right. Oh, maybe a prayer or two wouldn't hurt?
Jack: I think--I think that would be a really good idea.
Julie: Oh, I can finally tell doug.
[Laughs] You see, claire and I didn't want to let him know just in-- just waiting until we knew it was true about ciara. Oh, god, he's gonna be over the moon.
Jack: Uh, julie, I wouldn't-- I told the newsroom to hold off on publishing the story until the family could be informed.
Julie: Oh, thank you, jack. Thank you. You know, hope is still out there looking for her, and it wouldn't be right. It wouldn't be right if the public knew all about her before her own mother did.
Jack: Yeah, and--and I also think it would be a good idea if we waited to share this news with doug.
Julie: Oh, why? It's so wonderful! You want me to wait until we're sure-- until we're sure ciara is all right.
Ben: Kayla had warned me that ciara had been seriously hurt... and that I should prepare myself in case-- how am I supposed to prepare myself, dr. Evans? Hmm? I can'T. I won'T. Not after all this time and all this hope, I'm--I'm--
Marlena: Look at me... and listen to me. Ciara is a survivor. You've known that since you found her after the motorcycle accident. You have faced so much together. You've been each other's strength all this time. You know... when we were told that ciara had died, you never gave up. You just-- you kept on believing, and-- and she kept on believing that you would find her. So it's true. "Through the looking-glass." Like alice... she's come all the way through, and I know she will come back to you.
Seeing blood when you brush or floss can be a sign of early gum damage.
Marlena: I want you to believe in the connection that you have to ciara. I mean, the--the signs, the dreams you're having... I think they're very real, and I think that's what will bring her back to you.
Ben: I want to. I really do, but there is this knot in my stomach.
Marlena: I know that knot. It's the same knot that I will have until john is well again, until he's fine. You know, it doesn't matter whether I'm at his bedside or a thousand miles away. If he's in trouble, I can feel it.
Ben: Then you do understand.
Marlena: I do. We have this connection through which we communicate, same as you and ciara do. And that's what I call, well, love. I know she's feeling that right now from you. I know she's feeling your love.
Theo: Claire, you elbowed that guy evan when he had a gun on you? You could have been killed.
Claire: But I wasn'T. I just-- I feel so horrible that my dad got shot. Theo, when that gun went off--
Theo: Claire, if you wanna go be with your dad, I totally get it.
Claire: No, no, it's okay. My mom is with him. Plus, the man is in full cop mode, trying to track down my grandma hope to tell her the news. I think I just want to stay here. You know? Wait for an update on ciara.
Theo: If you want, I can wait with you.
Claire: I'd like that. Thank you.
[Sighs] So... it's so cool that you are a godfather now.
Theo: Yeah, I'm excited and nervous.
Claire: Theo, you're gonna be great.
Theo: I hope so. Have you written any songs lately?
Claire: No, I haven'T. I've been-- I've been kind of busy. So, uh, last time you were here, you said you were dating someone. How--how's that going?
Theo: Actually, we broke up.
Claire: I'm so sorry.
Theo: No, no, don't be. Obviously it wasn't meant to be. I mean, she was fun and smart, but, in the end, she just wasn't, um--
Claire: She wasn't ciara.
[Soft dramatic music]
Jack: Is that jennifer's robe?
Xander: Yeah, I just didn't want to get julie all excited again. Where is she, anyway? I should probably apologize.
Jack: She's on her way to the hospital.
Xander: Oh. It's not her heart, is it?
Jack: [Laughs] No, no, it's nothing like that.
Xander: Now that's weird.
Xander: I called sarah last night. She never called me back.
Kristen: Hmm. You are right about one thing. Bloke of a fiancÚ of yours will definitely come looking for you. So the further away you are, the better. There is a deserted island that stefano was very fond of using for people who knew too much.
Sarah: A deserted island? Really?
Kristen: Uh-huh, and, um, there's a supply plane that, uh, makes its rounds every few weeks. It's really quite idyllic.
Sarah: You're being serious. Weren't you a nun not that long ago?
Kristen: My family means everything to me, and I'm going to do whatever it takes to have a future with them.
Sarah: Yeah, well, maybe you should have thought of that before you broke out of prison to spy on brady, or before you broke out of prison the first time to threaten chloe, or before you thought it was a good idea to bonk me over the noggin and bring me here!
Kristen: Don't make me rethink killing you.
Sarah: Fine. Stick me on an island somewhere, I guess. You're gonna be sorry. Xander is never going to stop looking for me, and he will find out the truth, and we both know when he does, he's going to make your life a living hell.
Kristen: Hmm. Yeah, but xander wouldn't look for you if you brutally, viciously broke his heart and dumped him, would he? Something great from mr. Clean.
Xander: I should call her. Unless that's-- that's not bad luck, is it?
Jack: What, to--to call your bride before your wedding? Um, not unless you video chat.
Xander: Yeah, you sure? Because I really don't want to jinx the best thing that's ever happened.
Jack: I'm sure. You can't see the bride, but there's nothing in the rules that says you can't talk to her. Hey, what's going on here? I mean, am I sensing some nerves?
Xander: It's just sarah and i were so close to getting married last time, and I blew it, almost lost her for good. I don't think I could stand it if I lost her again.
Sarah: I'm not going to break xander's heart. Is that my phone?
[Phone chimes] You can't do that!
Kristen: Oh, I just did. Don't you just love face recognition?
[Clears throat] I can't marry you, xander. I don't love you anymore. I'm leaving town. Please do not contact me.
Sarah: That won't work. Xander would never believe that I would break up with him unless he heard it straight from me.
[Phone rings] Oh! How about that? It's your fiancÚ. I guess you... have the chance.
Ben: I can't thank you enough for being here. I know you must want to go check on shawn. Is he doing okay?
Marlena: Shawn's gonna be fine. He told me that evan is in custody. That must--must be a comfort for you.
Ben: That bastard pointed a gun at me while I was holding ciara. He said, "all great loves stories end in tragedy." If that beam hadn't had fallen on him, ciara and I would be dead right now.
Marlena: I'm so sorry. I never should've gotten him released from bayview.
Ben: Oh, this isn't your fault. You didn't have a choice. Orpheus forced you to do that. My father helped to-- he was a part of it.
Marlena: I still feel responsible. Maybe if I hadn't had him released from bayview, none of this would have happened.
Ben: [Clears throat]
Theo: What about you? Last time I was here, you, uh, you met that guy. Charlie, the guy you spilled your smoothie on?
Claire: Oh, yeah. Charlie.
Theo: Yeah, you, um, you were really into him, but you were afraid that you'd screw it up. So you didn't even want to go on a date with him. Did you take my advice? Did you go for it? Are you dating now?
Claire: Turns out...
[Sighs] I screwed up again.
Claire: You told me to take a chance on love. Well, I fell in love with a total sociopath.
Theo: I'm sorry I even gave you that advice.
Claire: No, theo, it is not your fault.
Theo: I'm just glad that he didn't try to hurt you.
Claire: Yeah, I was lucky my mom came in when she did.
Theo: So, do you think your aunt sami killed him? I mean, it sounds like charlie made a lot of enemies. Are there any other suspects?
Claire: You know what? We haven't had an update on ciara's surgery in a while. I'm just going to see what I can find out.
Marlena: Ben, this sounds serious.
Marlena: I think you should get this checked out again.
Ben: The doctor said I was fine. And I'm not going anywhere until ciara is out of surgery.
Marlena: I understand that.
Ben: Thank you again for being here. You always have this way of making me believe that everything is going to be okay. Or at least reminding me that I'm strong enough for whatever the hell is next. I'm good now. Thank you. Go be with shawn, please.
Marlena: Well, in fact, shawn is with belle right now, and I think they're trying to figure out where hope is.
Ben: She never stopped believing that ciara was alive.
Marlena: Just like you.
Kristen: Of course, I doubt you'll cooperate.
Sarah: No, not a chance in hell. But please feel free to answer it, and tell xander what you did to me.
Kristen: No, I don't think so.
[Phone beeps] This is odd.
Jack: Come on. I mean, I'm sure sarah is just busy getting ready for the big day.
Xander: She doesn't have to do anything special. She's already the most beautiful woman I've ever known, and she wants to marry me. Can you believe it, jack? What?
Jack: You know, when you--you asked me to be your best man, I was, uh--
Jack: Putting it mildly, yes, but I was happy to accept because I've seen a different side of you lately, and, uh, I'm touched by it, quite frankly, your devotion to sarah, her happiness.
Xander: I'm in love.
Jack: Mm, you're not just in love. You, xander, are a hopeless romantic.
Sarah: He's just gonna call back. And he'll call back again and again. That's what he does.
Kristen: Really? Because your fiancÚ didn't even bother to leave a message.
Sarah: That's because he's getting ready for our wedding, which is what I should be doing.
Kristen: Yeah. It's just too bad you had a change of heart, and you're going to break up with him in a text. You know, maybe I should add something about how you never really got past him passing off my daughter as yours, and that you finally, finally realized what a monster he is. That is why you never want to see him again.
Sarah: What is it you don't get? Xander knows that I've forgiven him. He knows I trust him, that I love him, and I'm committed to him for the rest of my life.
Kristen: Oh, my god, spare me your wedding vows.
Sarah: Kristen. Kristen... I know how much you love brady and rachel. I do. This--this isn't-- this isn't the way. How long are you-- how long are you gonna pretend to be susan banks? To be so close to the two people that you love more than anything on this entire earth, all you can do is watch? I know. I know you don't want to go back to prison. I don't blame you, I-- the longer this goes on... the worse it's gonna be. The worse the consequences are gonna be, but if we just-- we end it right now, this whole thing, then the authorities, they'll go easy on you. And I-I will speak on your behalf. I will do anything I can to help you. Kristen, please. Please do the right thing, please. Do it for rachel. Let me go.
Limu emu & doug
Xander: [Sighs] Bonnie's not picking up either.
Jack: Well, come on. She's the maid of honor. She's getting her hair done. She's getting her wardrobe put together. I mean, she's not focused on her phone. Hmm?
Xander: Yeah. You're probably right, eh?
Jack: Come on.
Kristen: I'm sorry.
Kristen: I can't let you go, sarah.
Sarah: [Exhales heavily] Fine. Just send the damn text. Xander's not gonna believe it.
Kristen: You certainly are sure of his faith in you.
Sarah: As sure as you are brady's in you. Just like you and brady, xander and I have been through far, far too much together for him to ever doubt my love for him. There is no way in hell he would think that I would ever break up with him, not unless I was standing right in front of him, looking him in the eye, telling him it was over, and even then, honestly, he probably wouldn'T.
Kristen: You just gave me a scathingly brilliant idea.
[Elevator bell dings]
Julie: Theo! You've heard! Our beloved ciara is alive! Oh, darling. Is there news? Is she out of the surgery yet?
Theo: Not yet, but claire went in to check. So hopefully we'll hear something soon.
Ben: [Clears throat]
Marlena: Why don't i go to the nurses station and see if there's an update on ciara's condition?
Ben: I'd rather have your company.
Does it always take this long?
Marlena: Well... trauma surgeries can be complicated. I'm--I'm sure we'll hear something soon.
Claire: Grandma, ben... great news. Ciara's out of surgery.
