Uncle Sam Slingers

Preparations are underway for the big Fourth of July bash. Bo hauls beer. Lexie brings stuff to a table where Hope is setting food out. Hope thinks they have enough food to feed everyone in Salem. Lexie dives into the potato chips like a hungry jackal. She tells Hope she hasn't stopped eating since she got out of the tunnel. Hope tells Lexie she is sooooo sorry for everything she has been through and calls for more food as Lexie continues to graze uncontrollably.

Hope thinks Lexie should see Abe. Lexie isn't ready. She says she's lost her nerve. Bo comes over so they can gang up on her. Guests start to arrive. Bo tells Hope not to push things about Colleen today. Bo fills Lexie in on the situation as Hope answers the door.

Caroline arrives sans OMB. She says he's not coming. Hope starts to push, but Caroline asks her to drop the Colleen issue for today.

Nick thinks Jett is just having pre-wedding jitters. Jett thinks it's something more than that. He thinks Danielle is seeing someone else.

Danielle vows undying love to the guy on the phone as the brat listens. Danielle gets off the phone and Chelsea asks about her broken nail. Danielle has forgotten all about her broken nail, but suddenly remembers, "Oh... All better now." She says she appreciates Chelsea looking after her man.

Patch hauls Jeremy and Stephanie off for a talk. He apologizes to Jeremy.

Marlena gives John a rubdown at the beach. John talks about Sami. She's in a safe house so they have no worries. Smooches. Suddenly Marlena sees Belle. She chuckles but then... Oops... "She's with Phillip." Phillip and Belle share ice cream cones and yuck it up.

Belle hopes things are going well for Shawn at the big interview. Phillip tells her to relax. He wants to fix things for her. John and Marlena watch and wonder. Marlena asks, "What if he's just laying a trap."

Phillip thinks Belle needs a little time for herself, "And I have just the thing for you."

Patch continues his apology. Adrienne smiles like the Cheshire cat in the background. Jeremy thinks this is awesome, "You know, we're a lot alike, DAD."

Danielle tells Chelsea she meant she is glad Jett is making friends here. Chelsea insists they are just friends. She tells Danielle she thinks trust is really important. Danielle couldn't agree more.

Jett says the little things don't add up with Danielle. Danielle comes back and they go to dance. Chelsea motions for Nick. He sits with her and she tells him Danielle is cheating on Jett.

Caroline shares a moment with Lexie. Bo asks about OMB. Caroline says he had business at the pub and then runs off to get deviled eggs. She don' wan' any more questions. Max arrives. He brought designer baby clothes and a designer doll for Ciara. Bo says he can't accept them.

Hope interrupts Caroline in the living room, "Why didn't you tell Bo the truth – that his dad's not coming today?"

Caroline doesn't want to deal with it, "I think you know. Shawn doesn't want to dig up the past."

Caroline leaves. Kayla is back from the longest conference in the history of medicine. Hope tells her there is a crisis with her dad. She gives her the story. Kayla vows to convince him to come. She wonders where Steve is. Hope tells her he might be at the DiMera mansion. Kayla blows her stack. Hope tries to calm her down. She says Steve's keeping track of them. Kayla is concerned about Steve's recovery. Not concerned enough to stay away from her stupid medical conference, though.

Jeremy tells Patch they are alike. Patch wonders, "How so?"

"You are both rebels," says Stephanie, "J thinks outside the box.

I'm glad there is somewhere he does some thinking," says Patch, "Why don't we all have dinner together some evening?" Jeremy gets a call. He leaves and Stephanie asks if Patch is just blowing smoke.

Chelsea tells Nick about the phone call she overheard. Nick asks, "Danielle is having an affair?"

Chelsea says, "I think that we should do something."

Nick says, "It's none of our business."

Chelsea says, "Jett's my friend. I'm not gonna just stand back and watch him get his heart broken." Oblivious Jett and Danielle the cheater dance.

Bo says Ciara doesn't need fancy things for people to show her they care. Bo wonders where Max is coming up with all the dough.

John thinks Phillip and Belle are just relaxing like him and Marlena. Marlena thinks Belle needs to be careful.

Phillip wants Belle to lighten up and smile a little. He thinks she should start using his guest pass to the country club. He strokes her hair, "You will be the classiest woman there."

Belle says she should Victor to check on Claire. Phillip apologizes as she runs off.

Marlena and John cuddle on the beach. Oops, they forgot they are in public and things go to the next level. Belle watches their shenanigans.

Hope shows Kayla the pictures of the letters. Kayla brings Hope up to date on the friction between Jeremy and Patch.

Patch says Jeremy is setting off warning lights in his head, but he wants to give him a chance. Jeremy comes back and offers to buy Patch a beer. Patch says some other time. He has to get over to Bo and Hope's. Patch leaves. Stephanie watches as he goes, "I think we finally have my dad back this time."

Chelsea can't believe how badly Danielle is treating Jett, "but he's just..." Say it in unison folks... "MY FRIEND." Jett, Danielle, Stephanie and Jerkemy come back and they all share "Uncle Sam slingers." Nick declines to sling. "BOTTOMS UP!"

Adrienne, looking more like Bonnie every minute, says she is proud of Patch. She reminds him of how tough it was for him and Kayla when they were dating."

"Hey," says Patch, "The Depression was tough on everyone."

"Jeremy could be the love of Stephanie's life," says Adrienne.

Max hems and haws. He says he and Jeremy have something going on the side, "Selling designer stuff to a guy in Vegas."

Bo says, "Tell me you're not involved in something illegal."

Max hitches. He tells Bo they clothes are knock offs. Bo says that's still criminal activity. Max says if things get dicey he'll get out. In the meantime, he'll just tell every cop he runs into what he is up to.

Kayla and Hope talk about Patch and Jeremy. Kayla hopes Patch doesn't push Stephanie away. Suddenly, the tweeny-boppers all barge in. Jeremy meets Kayla and Hope sends them out back.

Stephanie stays and the mother and daughter reunion follows. Stephanie tells Kayla Patch apologized to Jeremy.

Belle comes back and tells Phillip she saw John and Marlena making out, "They have been through so much. Can you imagine almost losing the love of your life and then getting them back?"

"Isn't that what happened with you and Shawn," asks Phillip.

"Yes."

The crowd continues to arrive. Lexie can't stand it. She has to get out of there, "Jett is here. We've never met, but I'm sure he's seen pictures. He might tell Abe I was here. And besides, you've just about run out of food." She leaves.

Jett and Danielle meet Bo. Hope tells Doug, Julie and Kayla OMB isn't coming. Doug doesn't want to be the only great-grandfather there, "It'll be my responsibility to bore everyone with stories."

"You can accomplish the same thing by turning on the Fourth of July episode of DOOL," says Julie.

Kayla goes to knock some sense into OMB.

Chelsea sits with Max and talks about how nasty Danielle is. Nick walks up and tells her to leave it alone. She can't. ALL TOGETHER NOW, "Jett is my friend." Nick tells Chelsea Jett already knows Danielle is fooling around on him.

Maggie and Alice arrive. The crowd crushes them as they walk in. Alice gasps for air.

Jeremy comes over and says hi to Alice. She says he reminds her of Jeremy Horton, but he never comes to see her. Jeremy claims he is busy. Alice admonishes him to be good.

Jeremy turns on the charm, "You know me..."

"Exactly," says Alice.

They haul Ciara and Claire over to say hi to their great-great-grandmother.

Belle announces Shawn is back from his big interview. Phillip stops her from going. He's sorry if he crossed the line with his offer. He claims he was thinking of Claire, "She hasn't had any time with other kids." Except for Belle, of course. Phillip asks her to take the club offer – for Claire.

Nick tells Chelsea what Jett told him. Chelsea thinks it doesn't make sense, "He's been all over her all night."

"Maybe he doesn't want to let her go," says Nick, "It sucks to find out the person you love wants to be with someone else."

"Or is someone else," says Chelsea.

Phillip says the country club has a great childcare program, "If it works out for you, maybe you can get Claire in it, too." Phillip says Claire is important to him, "And so is her mom." He wants to make it up to her for the hell he put her through. Belle says she will think about it and talk to Shawn. She has to go. Phillip says to let him know how the interview went. Belle leaves. Phillip sighs.

Hope finds the contraband Max brought. Bo insists he's having him take it back, "He and Jeremy are running a scam. They are in over their heads."

Shawn asks Max about the garage. Max tells him about his new venture, "I have the head mechanic running things at the garage. He's a good mechanic, but has the personality of a wet mop."

"What a coincidence," says Shawn, "I have the IQ of a wet mop. If you ever need me back at the garage, though, I'd like to run things." Max is very receptive to the idea. He would even share the profits with Shawn.

Marlena and Belle team up. Belle says she saw them making out like teenagers at the beach. Marlena saw her and Phillip. "He's just my friend," says Belle. Damn, this is a friendly town. Shawn pulls Belle away. Bo comes up to Marlena and offers a beer. Marlena says she could use a cold one. She's worried and very skeptical about whether Phillip has changed.

Phillip sits at the beach and thinks. He gets a call, "Hello?" Slience. "Hello, is anyone there?" He hears a baby crying through the receiver, "What the hell? Who is this? Who is calling?"

Patch busts in. John asks, "What's shaking over at the DiMeras?"

Patch says, "Things are quiet. I guess even the DiMeras take time off on the Fourth of July. Of course they have Barf and Rolf fix the burgers."

Kayla comes in with OMB. He says he needs a beer. John takes him out back. Kayla punches Steve out for working with the DiMeras. He kisses her and promises things will be OK, "Let's go to the party and later we'll have some private fireworks."

Bo announces it's picture-taking time. Everyone lines up. Shawn tells Belle the interview went fine and they will just see what happens.

The photographer snaps the picture.

Previews
========

Stephanie says, "Let's go hit the surf, Moon-Doggie." Jeremy says, "Moon-Doggie? OK. Right behind ya, Gidg." Jet and Danielle watch.

Nick says, "I want to spend the night with you." Chelsea says, "I'm sorry, Nick. It's not going to happen."

Colleen the nun has Santo cradled in her lap, "So, can you hear me? Open your eyes." Santo opens his eyes.

Bo says, "She wasn't a nun yet. She hadn't taken her vows." Hope says, "Oh, I'm sure she never did. One thing we do know... this just can't have a happy ending." John and Marlena listen.

You guys didn't really make an Alice joke, did you? COME ON! I'm so happy she can be on the show tomorrow!

Great-great-grandmother... hmm... time to go to the Wikipedia days family tree. So. Alice is Hope's grandmother, which would make her Ciara's great grandmother. And Alice is Shawn's great grandmother, which makes her Claire's great great grandmother. And Ciara is Claire's aunt. I think.

Thanks as always for a great Prevuze!

Elle:
I agree trying to follow the Brady family tree can be a little hard.
Alice is the mother of Addie, who had Hope who had Ciara and Shawn. So she's Hope's grandmother and Ciara's great-grandma and Claire's great-great grandma.
And yes Ciara would be Claire's aunt.

Thanks so much for the heads up Prevuze, I will be watching for the John/Marlena geezer sex with my finger on the FF button of my DVR. Ewwwwwwwwwwww

DOOLism of the day:
Bo tells Hope "He and Jeremy are running a scam. They are in over their heads."
Working at McDonalds would be over their heads

I LOVE the Butt Paste car and Max in the racing outfit!!!

Super job Prevuze!!

So how was the punch Kayla threw? Did she make it a good one or was it all girly?

No one is safe on Prevuze. Besides, you be the judge, when you see Alice make her appearance tomorrow. They announce her presence and the whole clan gloms on like bugs on flypaper and she gets caught in a Bo-Hope kissing vice.

Hmmm... if that got your undies in a bunch, maybe we should break out some of our old Tom "Shakes" Horton jokes. I remember one Fourth of July where we had him impaled on a flagpole that went berserk...

It was girly smacks all the way. I kept waiting for Patch to say, "Oh, baby, do it again!"

OK, are Uncle Sam Slingers non alcoholic? I remember not too long ago at Chez Rouge that Maggie busted the brat for trying to drink alcohol with Dr. McCreepy when he was trying to get his molestation act on.
Maybe I missed a birthday and/or a time/age continuum change.

Chelsea says, "I think that we should do something."

Nick says, "It's none of our business."

When did Nick start staying out of people's business? Remember Wilho?

This tortured triangle with Belle, Shawn and Dr. Phil has lost the little charm it had for me.

Did somebody have a theory about Colleen being a nun before?

"What a coincidence," says Shawn, "I have the IQ of a wet mop." HAHAHA

All the pictures were great - especially the race car and race suit. Man, do they look real!

I agree with the stupidity of Max telling Bo about his illegal scam. But remember who he was talking to, Prevuze. It was Bo. A member of the Salem PD. Not a REAL cop. HAHAHAHA

Except for getting to see all the foks en mass it does sound like a boring show. Thank goodness for Prevuze.

The drinks are definitely supposed to be alcoholic, and Chelsea definitley pounds one down. She does look a little reluctant to do it but, then again, the drinks don't contain any Esctasy.

In order to get the full effect of the scene, I had to go back and watch it. I probably should point out Kayla hugged and kissed him before she smacked him. We missed that the first time around. Here's how that happens:

Prevuze typing rate: 12 wpm on a good day with the wind at my back.

Actor's talking rate: 14,274 wpm with one lip tied behind their back.

I really had to laugh out loud when I got to The Depression. HAHAHAHA

Here are a few questions of mine:

1. What was the point of Lexie being there except to kill time?

2. If Max isn't racing any more and he's got a "head mechanic" running things at the shop what has HE been doing?

3. Where are Maggie and the Mickster at the big party? And if Maggie does show up what will be the excuse this time for Mickey not being there?

Great racing pictures and the one of the demise of Shelle. HAHAHHA Excellent pre-holiday Prevuze! :D

The crowd continues to arrive. Lexie can't stand it. She has to get out of there, "Jett is here. We've never met, but I'm sure he's seen pictures. He might tell Abe I was here.

Like none of the Hortons or Bradys or hanger ons know her or Abe.Maybe, just maybe, Bo or Hope or just anyone might tell Abe they saw her.

Bulldog,
1. Somebody needed to eat all that food.
2.Just waiting for someone to call him to back a dubious business deal and maybe bonking some other nieces.
3.Mickey and Maggie, I don't know.
Mickey might be at the Cheating Heart with Adrienne/Bonnie and Maggie could by on the beach spying on Squints and Marlena

Good points all Bulldog

Thanks to everyone. I laughed throughout the post AND the comments. And the toe tag is a CLASSIC! I'll never look at a mop the same way.

I had that same reaction Brenda. How would Bo and Hope know not to tell Abe they save Lexi's life???? They're all about taking the credit.

Also, I think someone needs to buy Caroline a new set of dentures ....just sayin....

And Phillip got a call from a crying baby after Mimi called Shawn???

Here we go with the Phimi baby peeps! Blackmail straight ahead.

So Santo raped Colleen while she was a nun and became pregnant with twins, one being Stephano and the other being.... ALICE! THE HORROR!

Prevuze and we mean commentors did make some pointed comments about Caroline a couple of years ago when the actress showed up after her "death" with what appeared to be a face lift gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Being the politically correct persons that we are (hehehehehe) we did back off of the "personal" comments about the actresses looks.

All that said.....Caroline and Clay....LMAO!

Well that's the tag they usually hang on corpses at the morgue. I may be a little off, but it means Shelle is dead.

Damn, this is a friendly town.

Haha!

And Happy 4th of July everybody.

is it just me or did lexie look like the grim reaper? she had on all black and a long gray sweater...odd choice of wardrobe for an outdoor picnic in july.
as far as chelsea and her drinking, i figure they must have SORAS'ed her to 21. she was sixteen, what, two years ago or so when she first appeared? that's not that big of a jump, considering EJ is supposed to be 11 or 12 years old.

SORASed??

And in the family picture they took at the end of the episode, why were Jet and Danielle in there? It's a family photo, you've never met them before, don't you say "you know what, we'll sit this one out"?

And poor Nick, in the back all by himself while his girlfriend is sitting with Bope!

Oh, and depressing as all get out, I had a dream last night about Mimi being back on the show. I actually thought it was real until I saw today's episode. How low has my life sunk that I'm now dreaming of Days?
