Days of our Lives
Air Date: Monday, May 16, 1994
Scene 1: Maison Blanche
STEFANO: What is it, Marlena?
MARLENA: This. . .this is moving a little too quickly for me. Letís have some more wine.
STEFANO: Something is wrong.
MARLENA : No, nothingís wrong, Stefano.
CELESTE: How can you watch that? How can you watch it?
JOHN: You shouldnít watch. It will only upset you.
CELESTE: I donít have to look. Sheís seducing him, and he loves it.
STEFANO: Youíre not being honest with me, Marlena. I think the real reason you broke that kiss, why you are holding back, is because of the past.
MARLENA : Itís not easy to forget all thatís happened. Yes, I admit, my feelings for you confused me. Surely you can understand my misgivings.
STEFANO: I might have doubted your sincerity if you hadnít admitted you had misgivings. But I might have a cure for your fears and misgivings. I am going to make love to you, Marlena. And after, believe me, you wonít have any more doubts.
JOHN : No, damn it, donít let him do it, Marlena!
Scene 2: Maison Blanche
STEFANO: Your skin is so soft. Youíre so quiet, Marlena. Donít you want to make love to me?
MARLENA : Letís take it slowly. Letís have some wine.
STEFANO : I find you far more intoxicating than wine.
CELESTE: Damn Stefano. How could he do this to me?
JOHN You can stop this you know. Let me out of here and Iíll take Marlena away from here.
CELESTE: I canít do that.
JOHN: But look how cruel Stefano is to you.
CELESTE: Even when heís cruel, even when he cheats on me with other women, I canít betray him. Bestides, I donít have the keys. Only Stefano does.
MARLENA: Weíve never talked. Tell me about this house. Itís fascinating. Iíd love to know the history of it, how you found it. . .
STEFANO: So much talk, Marlena. Iím beginning to think youíre trying to stall me.
MARLENA: Why would I do that?
STEFANO: Perhaps youíre playing a game. Perhaps youíre only pretending to want me. . .
MARLENA: Thatís not true.
STEFANO: Then prove it. No more games. Make love to me. Right now.
MARLENA: All right. Letís go upstairs.
STEFANO: No. I want you here. Now.
CELESTE: Iíve had enough of this.
JOHN: Celeste, if you want Stefano, thereís only one way you can get him.
JOHN: I just told you. With my help.
Scene 4 : Dungeon
JOHN: No, Marlena! Donít let him! No!
MARLENA: No, wait.
STEFANO: What is it now?
MARLENA: Thereís only one first time. I. . .I want to savor it. Make this last.
STEFANO : Believe me, I will.
MARLENA: I want to do something for you first. Please, let me. Here, drink this. And watch.
STEFANO: Ah, so the beautiful Marlena does like to play games.
MARLENA: Games are only fun with the right partner.
STEFANO: Youíre driving me crazy.
MARLENA : Thatís the idea.
Scene 5: Maison Blanche
MARLENA: Youíre quiet, Stefano. Donít you like what Iím doing?
STEFANO: I like what youíre doing very much. Itís making me very. . .warm.
MARLENA: Well, thereís one way to quench your thirst. . .
STEFANO: I know.
(He reaches for her but Marlena moves ďteasinglyĒ away)
MARLENA: Not yet. For now, you can only look. Not touch.
STEFANO: I donít want to wait.
MARLENA: Anticipation will only make it sweeter. But if you need to cool off. . .
STEFANO: Well, continue.
(Marlena hesitates, but now has no recourse but to remove the last of her underthings. The camera on Stefano as he drinks in her nakedness)
STEFANO: Youíre beautiful. No wonder so many men want you. But youíre mine now.
Scene 6: Dungeon
JOHN: Doc, are you okay? I was watching on the monitor till Celeste turned it off. Did Stefano.?
MARLENA: No, he finally drank the drugged wine and passed out. I got the keys.
JOHN: You took a really big risk just now.
MARLENA: It was worth it. Now we can get away from here.
JOHN : Yeah, and Iím taking you someplace where Stefano can never put his dirty hands on you ever again. Come on. Letís get out of this hellhole.
JOHN: Itís just. . .I know the secret of my past is in this house. If I leave now. . .No, I have to get you to someplace safe.
