[Fire alarm beeping]
Eli: What the hell? Who's trying to set the damn house on fire?
Chanel: Now, that's what I call hot.
Allie: Hi, is that what you're wearing to the lake?
Tripp: No, no, I just haven't had a chance to change yet.
Allie: I was kidding. I'm really psyched that you don't have to work today.
Tripp: Yeah, me, too. I thought for sure I was gonna be spending the fourth at the hospital just because that jerk snyder insisted that I come in.
Allie: Yeah, what happened?
Tripp: I don't know. I got there on time, but snyder was a no-show.
Xander: The hell? You trying to drown me?
Gwen: I have been shaking you violently for the past five bloody minutes, and you haven't moved a muscle.
Xander: Because I was asleep.
Gwen: No, don't do that. I haven't slept a wink. Now you're going to tell me what you did with dr. Snyder's dead body.
Ciara: Ben, I remember everything. I remember our marriage. I remember our life. I remember our love, and I'm back, baby. I'm back, and I'm better than ever, right with you where I belong.
Ben: Oh, my god. Ciara!
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Claire: Ben, it is the fourth of july, okay? I'm not gonna let you mope around your apartment all day, thinking about ciara.
Ben: Claire, I--
Claire: No, no, no, I'm not listening. I'm meeting tripp and allie at the lake, and you're coming with me, no questions asked.
Tripp: So is chanel coming?
Allie: No, dupree and I, we're not attached at the hip, you know?
Tripp: Oh, so she had other plans then.
Allie: Yes, but--
Tripp: But I was obviously your first choice of who you wanted to hang out with, right?
Allie: Yeah, especially because when me and dupree used to hit the beaches in europe, she'd make me carry all of our stuff, and now you get to do the honors.
Tripp: Oh, thank you.
Eli: Didn't you hear the smoke alarm?
Chanel: I had headphones on.
Eli: Not cool, chanel. There's two babies in this house.
Chanel: I know, you're right. I messed up.
Eli: What was this supposed to be, anyway?
Chanel: The cake for your anniversary party tonight. When lani went out this morning, I thought I had just enough time to get it done.
Eli: Thanks, now the whole apartment smells like smoke.
Chanel: I must've forgot to set the timer. With my bakery opening soon, I've got a lot on my mind. I'm really sorry, eli.
Eli: Thanks for trying. Look, we gotta be careful, all right? I want to surprise my wife, but lani cannot find out about this.
Lani: Find out about what?
Limu emu & doug
Eli: Chanel burned something in the oven. She set the smoke alarm off.
Chanel: It's a new recipe I'm trying out for "sweet bits," but it's not supposed to be flambé.
Lani: Eli burns stuff in the oven all the time. Why wouldn't you want me to find out about that?
Chanel: I'm sorry, cousin, but I saw eli naked again.
Paulina: It's been a long time since a man has spoiled me like this.
Abe: Oh, no, that can't be true.
Paulina: It is. I haven't been involved with a man in, ooh...ha. Lord, it's been years.
Abe: Hm, did you not want to be involved?
Paulina: Well, I was married to my work. There was just no room on the calendar for romance.
Abe: Well, could be that, or maybe you didn't meet the right man in miami because the right man was right here in salem.
Paulina: Think so, huh?
Abe: [Chuckling] I do.
Paulina: Well, why don't you try and bring me around to your way of thinking?
Abe: You know what? I would love to do that.
Claire: Happy fourth of july!
Tripp: Oh, hey!
Allie: Happy fourth to you, too!
Ben: Happy fourth.
Allie: Hi, happy fourth. How nice is it here?
Tripp: Way nicer than at the hospital, that's for sure. It's really hot.
Allie: I know!
Claire: I cannot wait to get in that lake. Ben?
Ben: Oh, no, you guys go ahead. I'm gonna stay back here and grab a beer, actually.
Tripp: I'll join you.
Allie: Race you to the dock?
Claire: You are on.
Tripp: Thank you.
Ben: You're welcome. Cheers.
Tripp: Yes, sir.
Ben: So what's going on with you and allie?
Tripp: What do you mean?
Ben: Well, last time we talked, you said you thought there might be something going on between the two of you, but it was too complicated?
Tripp: Yeah, I didn't know how we could ever be more than friends, but turns out you were right. Nothing's impossible.
Ben: So you guys are together now?
Tripp: Yeah, we're--yeah, we're taking it slowly, but yeah.
Ben: Nice, man.
Tripp: What about you and claire?
Ben: Oh, claire and I, we're just friends. Been going through a bit of a rough time lately, and she's really been there for me, man.
Tripp: Ben, I'm really sorry about ciara... that she left salem.
Ben: Yeah, thank you, man. You know, even though my wife may be across the world right now and may be with another man, there is no way in hell I will ever stop fighting to get her back.
Xander: The reason I was able to sleep last night is I have nothing to feel guilty about, and neither do you.
Gwen: Honestly, how can you say that, xander? Dr. Snyder died in this very room.
Xander: Not because of anything we did. Bastard had a heart attack.
Gwen: Because you held a bloody blade to his throat and threatened to kill him.
Xander: But I didn't kill him; I let him go.
Gwen: And he died promptly after, didn't he? Right here on this settee.
Gwen: Don't want to sit there. Don't want to sit there anymore ever. I can't still see his creepy, ugly corpse right there.
Xander: You had no problem sitting where his creepy, ugly corpse was when jack walked in, did you? When we were using snyder as a footstool, so your daddy wouldn't see him.
Gwen: God, I can't believe you actually slept on the thing.
Xander: It's fine. After julie saw snyder lying here and assumed he was one of my drinking buddies that passed out, she sent doug out to rent one of those steam cleaners.
[Inhales] Clean and fresh.
Gwen: Well, I don't care how clean and fresh it is, xander. The point is that you murdered someone, and you and I took that someone out of here together.
Xander: For the last time, I didn't murder anyone. The man's ticker went out.
Gwen: Yeah, you try telling that to the cops then.
Xander: We won't have to.
Gwen: What if someone finds his body?
From prom dresses
Eli: I had just gotten out shower, and I heard the smoke alarm going off, so I ran out, and my towel slipped.
Chanel: Just as I walked in.
Lani: Okay, chanel, this is, like, the third time you've seen my husband naked.
Chanel: Well, what can I say? I have excellent timing.
Lani: Has anybody checked on the babies?
Eli: No, they slept through the whole thing.
Lani: Look, chanel, I love you, you're my cousin, but...
Chanel: I know, it's time for me to move out. You guys should have this place to yourself and your babies. As soon as my bakery opens, I'll be able to afford my own apartment, but until then I'm sure I can stay with my mom.
Lani: Okay. Thanks for understanding.
Chanel: Of course. Lani, eli, I'm so grateful to you for putting up with all of my drama and never giving up on me.
Eli: I'll go.
Lani: No, I'll go. I need to feed them anyway. You, just keep your damn towel on.
Chanel: I hope I didn't get you in trouble.
Eli: I have a feeling that once lani walks into julie's place and sees the party that i have planned for her, she'll forget all about this.
Chanel: Well, the cake is gonna be epic. I'll get my things together and head to my mom's to get started.
Eli: Well, don't burn her place down.
Chanel: Yeah, no more headphones while the oven is on.
Paulina: You, sir, are very convincing.
Abe: Oh, well, I'm glad to hear it. What are your plans for today?
Well, we're going to the surprise party that eli's throwing for lani.
Abe: Oh, no, I mean, after that. Would you like to join me to watch the fireworks?
Paulina: Well, it's gonna be tough to top all the fireworks that started last night.
Abe: I can't argue there at all. May I use your shower?
Paulina: Of course.
Abe: You know, I would be happy to have company.
Paulina: Sounds tempting, but I've got some business calls to make.
Abe: On a holiday?
Paulina: Well, no rest for the wicked.
Abe: You know, you are doing a lot of good for a lot of people with this project you're working on, and there is nothing wicked about that.
Xander: Could you stop worrying? Nobody's gonna find dr. Snyder's body.
Gwen: Yeah, well, what if they do?
Xander: You're worrying for no reason. Trust me, I have a great deal of experience in this area.
Gwen: Disposing of dead bodies?
Xander: It's one of my many skills.
Gwen: God, I'm not surprised, but I'm not taking any chances. So are you going to tell me what you did with that corpse after I helped you carry it out to your car?
Xander: It's better if you don't know. In fact, you should just forget any of this ever happened.
Gwen: How the hell am i supposed to do that, xander?
Xander: Focus on the good. The creep who was blackmailing you into being his drug mule is gone permanently. You can breathe easy now, gwen.
Gwen: You say that, but i don't believe it.
Xander: Listen, snyder won't call you anymore. He won't show up at your door. He won't threaten or harass you ever again. It's over, gwen. You're free to enjoy the new life you're starting here with your dad. I swear. That doctor can't hurt you anymore.
Tripp: Ciara sent you divorce papers?
Ben: Yep, but I didn't sign 'em. Actually lit 'em on fire. I mean, she keeps texting me. She's calling me, telling me to send 'em back, but I just haven't responded.
Tripp: Yeah, but you'll have to eventually, won't you?
Ben: Honestly, man, I'm just hoping with all the space I'm giving her and the time, that eventually, she gets her memory back. She remembers how much we love each other. She comes home to me.
Tripp: I really hope that happens, man.
Ben: Thank you. Because honestly, living without her has been a complete night--
Claire: Ben, tripp! There's someone in the lake!
Ben: What? Claire, it's the fourth of july. I'm sure there's a lot of--
Allie: No, no, a corpse!
Claire: We're not positive, but we think there's a dead body in the lake. You're strong.
Paulina: Change of plans. I need the demolition on the horton town square to happen today. Yes, I'm aware that it's a holiday. That's why I'm paying you double time. Yes, I know, I know it's a big job, and I also know that everybody around is not gonna be happy about it, but I've learned that it's better to ask forgiveness than permission, so just get your--get your crew over there, and get the job done.
Chanel: What's going on with the project in the square?
Paulina: Oh, uh... I was just talking to the foreman of the construction crew.
Chanel: Is everything okay?
Paulina: Yeah, everything's fine--I just wanted to make sure that they were ready to start work right after the holiday weekend.
Chanel: Oh, my god, this is really happening. I'll soon be opening my own bakery with my best friend. I can't wait to tell horton. She's gonna be over the moon!
Ben: Claire, call 911!
Tripp: Help me flip him.
Allie: Ohh... oh, my god.
Ben: What? Do you know him?
Tripp: Yeah, he's my boss, dr. Clay snyder.
Gwen: Oh, my god, these are bloody horrible.
Gwen: Why are we eating them again?
Xander: Because of julie.
Gwen: Right. What?
Xander: I bought them at a local deli, and I put the box in the fridge with my name on it just to annoy her.
Gwen: Yeah, you mean, because she went completely mental when you ate all of her donuts.
Xander: Exactly. And we can't give that shrew the satisfaction of thinking that the donuts she made are superior to these store bought ones, so unfortunately, we're gonna have to eat all of them.
Gwen: I'm guessing hers are superior though.
Xander: Oh, totally.
Gwen: Ugh, I can'T. Why are you staring at me?
Xander: I was just thinking, maybe your guilty conscience doesn't have that much to do with snyder.
Gwen: No, don't you try to shrink me.
Xander: Shrink you? Just stating the obvious, that your guilt, it seems quite clear to me, has more to do with what snyder was holding over you than the fact that he died in your presence. I already know it has something to do with your miscarriage. So come on, gwen, why don't you just tell me, what'S... what's really keeping you up at night?
Gwen: Why would I trust you?
Lani: Hey, have you seen carver's--oh, never mind. Here it is.
Eli: Need any help?
Lani: No, I'm good.
Eli: Hey, are you angry?
Lani: About what, chanel? No, eli, look, it is our first anniversary, and I am not gonna spend it being angry. I know that you and all of your sweet bits are all mine.
Eli: No question. Look, I am really looking forward to a quiet alone night with you.
Lani: I am, too.
Eli: You sure that you're okay celebrating it at home?
Lani: Yes, I'm fine.
Eli: Okay, you mentioned that new club.
Lani: I know, but you're tired, so we'll just go another time on our next anniversary.
Eli: Deal. I love you.
Lani: I love you, too. I'm gonna go take this to carver.
[Phone rings] Detective grant. A dead body?
Xander: Why should you trust me? Let me see... I'm a very trustworthy person with a heart of gold. Guess not. How about because I'm so charming, and I make you laugh all the time?
Gwen: Have I ever laughed in your presence?
Xander: Now that I think about it, no.
Gwen: Yeah, and believe it or not, I don't find you charming or fun, mate, and even if I did, why would you being charming and fun make me trust you? There are plenty of charming and fun people, and they are total reprobates. In fact, I think I'm looking at one right now.
Xander: Okay, okay, a reason to trust me... we did just move a dead body together. That's gotta count for something, right? And you know, all things considered, we've been getting along okay here, right? Don't you think?
Gwen: I suppose so, all things considered.
Xander: So... why don't you tell me what's really keeping you up at night?
Gwen: If I do tell you, you have to swear to keep it to yourself, xander. Yeah? Because if my father finds out the truth, it will totally ruin our relationship.
Xander: I swear. I won't tell a soul. Your secret is safe with me. People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes
Paulina: Keep in mind that construction projects are almost always delayed.
Abe: Well, good morning.
Chanel: You didn't mention you had company.
Paulina: Oh, well, abe's here. He spent the night.
Abe: Oh, well, you know, i think I'd better get over to lani'S. Eli texted me, and he wants me to figure out some way to get lani over to julie's place for the party. So see you both there later?
Paulina: Mm-hmm, can't wait.
Abe: Oh, remember, it's a surprise.
Chanel: So what other secrets are you keeping?
Gwen: [Huffs] Right, so... jack had just asked me to move in here...yeah? And I was at the salem inn. I was packing up my things when I got this... I got this pain. It was like a sharp pain, like a bad cramp, and it was lasting for quite a while, so I knew that something was terribly wrong. So I went to the hospital, and dr. Snyder said that I miscarried.
Xander: I'm just...I'm so sorry that happened, gwen. That was after you fell down the stairs, eh?
Gwen: No, it was before.
Xander: Go on.
Gwen: I was in such a daze, xander, I suddenly found myself at the dimera house, and I knew I just had to speak to chad. I had to tell chad because it was his baby, too, but of course--of course I ran into abigail first upstairs in their bedroom.
Xander: Did you tell her what happened?
Gwen: I tried. I tried to, I did, but she refused to listen. She just ripped right into me, and she was so bloody cruel. Do you know, she said that i would be a terrible mother. She said that to me, but you know what, that's not true. Because I would have loved that little girl. I would've treasured her. I would have given her everything that I never had when I was growing up. Jack would've been a part of that, and, well, we... we would've been a real family.
Xander: What happened next?
Gwen: [Heavy sigh] Right, next, so then, now I was angry--I was so angry, xander, I-- I bloody slapped her across the face. So of course she chased me down the hall then and she chased me to the top of the stairs, and she grabbed my wrist. She was just bloody screaming at me. She was saying that she wanted to be rid of me and my unborn child, and so I tried to break free from her, and that's when I lost my balance and I fell. Then later at the hospital...
Xander: Everybody just assumed that the fall caused the miscarriage.
Gwen: I did it because i wanted to hurt abigail. I wanted jack, I wanted chad, and I wanted everyone to believe that my precious sister had killed my unborn child. Do you know, I even said that she pushed me down the stairs. She denied it. So I told jack the truth, about that part, anyway, that it was an accident.
Xander: So now everyone still believes that your baby was fine when abigail attacked you at the top of the stairs. And if you hadn't fallen trying to get away from her, you wouldn't have lost the baby.
Gwen: You know, she was so guilty that she left town. Strange, because...it gave me a chance to get close to my father. If he finds out the truth, I will lose him forever.
Xander: Yeah, you're right. Jack would hate what you've done.
Gwen: Are you gonna tell him?
[Police siren blaring]
Eli: So that was your boss, huh?
Tripp: Yeah, he was my supervisor at the hospital.
Eli: What'd you think of him?
Tripp: He wasn't my favorite person, but why would you ask me that?
Eli: It's just a question.
Tripp: I didn't kill him. I had nothing to do with this.
Eli: Tripp, I'm sure that you didn't, okay? We don't even know if he was murdered.
Ben: I mean, the guy could've just drowned.
Eli: Most people don't go for a swim fully dressed.
Claire: Maybe it was a boating incident. Like, he was drinking and fell overboard?
Eli: We'll see what the coroner says, but something tells me this wasn't an accident. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don't smell clean?
Abe: Happy anniversary.
Lani: Oh, dad, they're beautiful. Thank you.
Abe: Well, thank you.
Lani: And you remembered.
Abe: Yes, I did, and i apologize for my senior moment yesterday.
Lani: It's okay. Thank you so much for these.
Abe: So you two are going to spend a quiet evening at home? Is that still the plan?
Lani: Yeah, like I said, eli is so burnt out from work, and he just wants to stay at home, so yeah. What are you and auntie p gonna do?
Abe: You know, we might go watch the fireworks together later.
Lani: I just love seeing you so happy.
Abe: [Chuckles] Yeah, I am. You know, paulina's an amazing woman. I can't help but be impressed by her drive and her work ethic. Although, I do see someone who's been very lonely. She told me that she hasn't been involved with anyone for a long time.
Paulina: I was still seeing someone in miami when I met you father.
Lani: He's the reason you went back to miami? Aunt paulina, you said it was business.
Paulina: Well, I just went back to tell him it was all over, then I packed up my things, and I moved here. It's just abe now.
Lani: Auntie p said that?
Paulina: If you're referring to my relationship with abe, it's no secret. It's just new.
Chanel: Well, I don't have a problem with it, but I am a little weirded out about my mom hooking up with my ex's dad.
Paulina: You and theo broke up a while ago, and he lives on the other side of the world.
Chanel: Well, if he comes to visit, maybe you and abe can go easy on the pda.
Paulina: Oh, okay, so I can fully embrace your fluidity, but you can't handle me having a sleepover?
Chanel: You have been very cool, so I promise to be cool about abe.
Paulina: Oh, thank you.
Chanel: And not that I want to interfere with your sleepovers, but I was hoping i could crash here, you know, for a little while, just until the bakery's up and running, and i can get my own place.
Paulina: Did you do something to offend eli and lani?
Chanel: No, we just decided it's time for me to move on.
Paulina: Oh, well, in that case, mi casa es tu casa.
Chanel: Well, I hope that includes the kitchen because I have a cake to bake for tonight. You want to give me a hand?
Eli: All right, thanks. I appreciate your help.
Ben: You know where to find us if you need any more help.
Eli: I'm sure this isn't how you guys wanted to spend your fourth, so hopefully your day gets better.
Ben: Thanks, man.
Eli: Hey, tripp, before you go, I just want you to be clear, you're not a suspect, but since you were close with the deceased, you mind if I ask you one more question?
Tripp: No, not at all.
Eli: Did dr. Snyder have any issues at work?
Eli: Problems, conflicts, anything that I should be aware of?
Tripp: I did just talk to him yesterday because the count for one of our painkillers was off.
Eli: What do you mean, like there was pills that were unaccounted for?
Tripp: Yeah, he kind of blew me off, so I went to kayla, but she said she's handle it.
Eli: Okay, anything else?
Tripp: No, not really.
Eli: Not really?
Tripp: I mean, this is probably nothing, but there was some tension between dr. Snyder and one of his patients.
Eli: Which patient, tripp?
Tripp: My cousin, gwen rizczech.
Xander: So that's what snyder was holding over you. He was gonna tell jack the truth if you didn't deliver his drugs for him.
Gwen: So are you gonna tell jack the truth?
Xander: I said I wouldn't, and I won'T.
Gwen: But you think I'm a terrible person, don't you?
Xander: Well, I guess what you did was terrible, and I hate that you're deceiving jack, but I understand why you did it.
Gwen: To hurt abigail.
Xander: I'm sure that was part of it, but no, I think the bigger reason is you want a real relationship with your father. And I can relate to that.
Gwen: Yeah, jack did mention that your family hasn't exactly welcomed you with open arms.
Xander: I worked so hard for so long to prove myself just as worthy as any of the real kiriakis men, but no, there's no place for me there. No acceptance, no respect, no love. I pretended it doesn't hurt, but it does a lot.
Gwen: Guess we're just a couple of orphans in search of a family then, eh?
Xander: Well, don't know if I'll ever find anybody, but jack truly does care about you. He wants to embrace you as his daughter. And while I don't love what you've done to his other daughter, I would never ruin your chance at happiness with your father. You secret really is safe with me, gwen.
Gwen: Sorry, I don't know what that was.
Abe: Whatever's on your mind, lani, you can say it. Are you having second thoughts about me starting this relationship?
Lani: No, no, dad, it's not that. It's just, what you said, it-- I don't know, it just makes me think.
Abe: About what?
Lani: That aunt paulina is hiding something.
Paulina: So how long does it have to bake for?
Chanel: About 30 minutes, and then we decorate. And, mama, I'm sorry about before. I'm happy you're dating again.
Paulina: Abe's a good man.
Chanel: I haven't seen you this happy since daddy.
Paulina: Well, your father, he was a good man, too, kind, gentle, and I'm sure he's looking down right now, smiling that beautiful smile of his and saying, "I am so proud of you."
Chanel: He'd be proud of you, too, mama. Your project in the square would blow him away, just like it blows me away. I'm so happy to be a part of it and just to have you in my life.
Gwen: I'll get that.
Eli: Ms. Rizczech?
Gwen: Yes, hello.
Eli: I'd like to talk to you about your doctor, clay snyder.
Gwen: What about him?
Eli: He's dead.
Gwen: Oh, my god. That's awful. Um... what does that have to do with me?
Ben: Claire, I am really sorry that you had to see that. You sure you're all right?
Claire: Yeah, I'm fine.
Ben: It's okay to be freaked out.
Claire: And I was, but I felt better as soon as eli showed up.
Ben: Do you want to come in? We can watch the hot dog eating contest on tv.
Claire: That sounds fun and kind of gross, but I really need to get in touch with my dad. I think he must have found out about the dead guy in the lake. He's been texting me nonstop.
Ben: Well, thank you for getting me out of the house.
Claire: Of course, that's what friends are for.
