FBBDN

Belle and Phillip are in the pub going over plans for their trip. Belle tells Phillip she's not sure she can help. Phillip thinks the women at the shelter will trust Belle more than Phillip. Most people would trust Sauron more than Phillip. Belle goes through her story, "I'm Lauren's sister and I'm really worried about her – Man, that's a lot to remember."

Claire is at day care but Belle told them she will pick her up by six. She didn't tell Shawn.

Shawn goes through his box of tools. Hope can't believe the garage is going belly up. Shawn hopes Max doesn't go to jail. He doesn't know what is next for himself, though. He'll have to find a new job. Hope asks how Belle feels about it. Shawn hesitates, and Hope calls him on it.

Kayla comes out with Pocket as Patch is on the phone with Bo plotting against Andre. He chastises Kayla for dressing Pocket like a girl. Kayla wants to know why Steve has to be a part of the plot,
"We have this pocket full of miracles to think about." She heads for the hospital, but wants to leave Pocket with Patch.

Belle joins Phillip at a table. Belle says she thought she would tell Shawn at the last minute so they would have less time to argue. Phillip thanks her for going. "Friends show up for friends," says Belle. Phillip says it's been a lonely ride for him. Belle tells him he's not alone as long as she is around.

Hope and Shawn argue about whether he should tell Belle about losing his job. He says he's been thinking. Stand back, everybody. Maybe he will join the Salem PD.

Hope's smile fades, "At least you're qualified, since you are one of the dumbest guys in town." She doesn't think Belle will be thrilled. In fact, Hope isn't thrilled. She has already lost one six year old, and doesn't want to lose another.

Kayla thinks Patch passed basic baby training so she can leave pocket with him, "You know the the goochy goos and belly blows."

"I love it when you get kinky," says Patch.

Kayla says, "It comes down to FBBDN." Patch is confused. Kayla fills him in, "Feeding, burping, bath time, diaper change and nap. And not necessarily in that order." She assures him he can do it. Patch agrees. She over-instructs him. Patch tells her he's got it. He says everything will be cool. Nervous Kayla leaves.

Patch turns and contemplates his responsibility. He tells pocket, "We don't need any girly girls around. How much trouble could ten pounds of baby be?" He holds out a finger, "Gimme one."

"WWWAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!" Patch does his best.

Dr. Kayla comes in as Lexie sits with Benjy. Lexie wishes it were she instead. They play the blame game. "I want the best care for Benjy," says Lexie, "but we'll settle for you." Kayla says she will use Lexie's expertise and they can work together. Benjy might survive anyway.

Pocket rages. Steve tries everything... Dancing, singing, bootie puppets. He leans in for a closer look to see how Pocket is responding.

HURL!. Patch stares through the mess.

Hope warns Shawn about police work. He says when he breaks the news to Belle about losing his job, he wants to top it with something great. Hope tells him the possibility of danger is there all the time, "The donut shop production line could fail at any moment."

"Police work can't be as terrifying as living with Belle," says Shawn.

Hope is convinced he's not going to back down. She remembers all the dangerous things Shawn has done, "When you went to kindergarten... when you finally made it to first grade five years later... when you got your drivers' license... no living room or church in Salem was safe." She will just pray things work out. Shawn wants to apply to the academy before Phillip swoops in on Belle. Hope insists Belle is loyal to Shawn, "Phillip can't compete with you. He doesn't have a leg to stand on." She encourages Shawn to tell Belle tonight. He says he will.

Phillip and Belle make eyes at each other. She says she should go over to Bo and Hope's house and let them know what's going on today. He says he will pick her up in 45 minutes, "I mean it Belle, you're the best." She leaves.

Belle knocks. Shawn answers. Smooch. Shawn tells Belle he's taking her out to dinner tonight. "What's the occasion," asks Belle.

Shawn says, "Just to talk about dreams, plans and all the Days Of Our Lives." Belle suggests another night. She tells him about the Tulsa trip.

Hope knocks. Steve answers the door and thanks her for getting there so fast. He says he doesn't know what's wrong.

"Poopy diaper," asks Hope.

"No," says Patch, "I'm clean."

"Did you burp him after his last bottle," she asks.

"Bottle?"

"Steve," says Hope, "He's hungry." Patch goes for the bottle. He decides to get something for the baby while he's at it.

Kayla tells Lexie about leaving the baby with Patch. Lexie remembers leaving Isaac with Abe the first time. She hid outside and watched through the window. Kayla thinks it must have been difficult to lose Isaac. "Not as tough as having him die," says Lexie. She assures Kayla things will work out with Patch and Pocket.

Lexie says Benjy thinks Steve was a great daddy. Benjy still talks about the night they took him in. It was on their honeymoon and Benjy said it was the first time he ever felt safe, "It was Steve who made him feel that way."


Belle and Shawn talk about Tulsa. He asks why she has to go, "What about Billie, Kate Chelsea, why does it have to be you?"

Kayla talks about the new cocktail of antibiotics that might work for Benjy. Benjy's BP is up and so is his heart rate. Lexie doesn't know if he has the strength to pull through.

Kayla says they won't let Benjy die while the evil Stefano DiMera lies recovering in the next room, "He's rebuilding himself body part by body part, just like a Frankenstein. I couldn't pull the plug in Tuscany but if, God forbid, Benjy doesn't make it, I promise you Stefano will be next. I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I wanna kill. Kill! I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill, KILL, KILL!" She starts jumpin' up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL," and Arlo Guthrie comes out and starts jumpin up and down with her and they both jump up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL!"

And Arlo pins a medal on her, sits her down and says, "You're our girl."
"

Lexie feels the same way, even though Stefano is her father. Stefano has taken so much from all of them. Kayla says he has taken a lot from Steve and Steve is just starting to get back into life. She wants that to last.

Pocket is quiet. Steve apologizes for messing up with his bottle. Hope asks about Pocket's real identity. Steve says they don't know and he doesn't think Kayla is in a mood to find out. They decide Pocket will need a regular name when he grows up. Patch suggests the ever-so-regular names of Sonny or Wolf. He tells pocket he'll be leaving when they track down his real parents. "What if they don't," asks Hope, "Are you ready to take on parenthood again?"

"Parenthood," asks Patch, "Maybe. But I wasn't ready for you to ask me that question for the one thousandth time."

Lexie waits with Benjy. She says Kayla can go if she wants. Kayla says she is staying to see how the antibiotics work. She wonders how Lexie is doing. Kayla suggests she go snooze in her office. Lexie refuses to leave Benjy's side. Kayla thinks Lexie is afraid Andre will come and finish Benjy off if she leaves. "Santo's demand for revenge has destroyed all our lives," says Lexie, "I'm terrified for Theo – he has DiMera blood, too."

Benjy bats his eyes. The girls gasp.

Patch pours a drink. Hope asks if it felt good holding pocket. "Don't give me crap," snorts Patch, "You really think I'm cut out for this daddy gig?"

"One hundred per cent," says Hope, "Look at Benjy."

"That was before the brain trouble," says Patch.

Hope insists the old Steve is still there. He says, "When Pocket started crying, my first instinct was to dial 911, but the wailing was so loud I couldn't remember the number. If this was a test today I flunked."

"Hardly," says Hope, "It was like watching you with Stephanie all over again. I think you know a lot more than you give yourself credit for."

"Now I remember why I always called you sweet thing," says Patch, "Thanks, pal." He spreads his arms, "Ladies and gentlemen my first solo!" Hope helps him clean up.

Belle thinks if Phillip finds his son he'll be less interested in Claire. Shawn wants that in writing. Shawn tells her to be careful on the trip. Phillip knocks at the door and Shawn answers, "You here to pick up your flight buddy?"

"Is that a problem?"

Belle swoops in and answers for him, "No." Shawn also says it's not. Belle goes to make a call.

Shawn tells Phillip he knows what is going on, "What you're trying to do is move in on Belle and take her away from me, SO WHAT'S TAKING YOU SO LONG? "

The girls rejoice. Benjy doesn't remember what happened. Lexie fills him in. Andre didn't use sterilized instruments, but the antibiotics are working. Kayla will make calls to tell people Benjy is better. She tells him about Pocket, "Steve is the greatest dad in the world." Fatherhood has taken a real nosedive.

Shawn and Phillip argue about Phillip's motives. Shawn says this is the last time he will stand by while something like this happens. Belle rushes back. "Dinner is at six," says Shawn. Belle leaves.

Phillip gets nasty, "The last time I looked, Belle is a free woman. She's not your wife, not yet." He leaves. Shawn flashes his teeth Bo-style.

Kayla comes up to the door and prays they survived. She walks in and gives Steve the news on Benjy. Steve thinks he pulled through because of her. He tells her Pocket is asleep. Kayla is a bit surprised everything went OK, "What did you do with my husband?"

"That good-looking one eyed dude," asks Patch, "He's right here."

Kayla is impressed. "Wait till you see my second act," says Steve. Smooch. She says he's made her happy and is going the extra mile to be a good daddy. Now more than ever she wants them to raise a child together. She thinks one reason he came back was to be a daddy, "I'm going to go check on Pocket and then you can try to impress me all you want." Steve sighs.

Hope comes back. She senses something is wrong. Shawn tells her about the trip, "Phillip conned her into going. He thinks he's going to turn it into a romantic interlude." Hope asks if Shawn trusts Belle. He says he does.

"Then, whoosh," says Hope, "The doubts are all gone." FF Shawn.



Previews
========

Kayla says, "I could kill him in cold blood because of what he did to you. Patch says, "You know what, baby, that's the thing. There's the motive. I've got more reason to kill him than anybody."

Bo says, "I need Stefano here, in the hospital. Can you help me?" Tony asks, "Why?" Bo says, "I'm gonna kill him."

Stefano says, "I want you, Tony, to carry on the DiMera legacy." Tony says, "It would be an honor, Father."

A riot as always. Now logically if Andre took the liver with unsterlie instruments the Stefano should be close to death like Benjy....wait did I use logic and dool in the same sentence, what was I thinking.

Nice call, ls2011. Maybe Patch should have poured that bleach on the liver section after all.

I need to heed the warning not to drink coffee & read Prevuze at the same time - it's about as disastrous as Belle thinking and walking at the same time.

Huge spittake when I got to Lucas' liplock photo. Priceless!!

Love the hidden link too!

And I'm still wondering why Snarly Jr. is fighting so hard to KEEP Belle.

I agree with Law Student about the liver transplant. But it's Dool of course there is no logic.

Law student and Kiki:
Problems I have with the transplant storyline are not just the fact that Andre used unsterile instruments to remove the liver; he also did it with NO medical training!
Also like any reputable hospital would just take any old liver someone walked in and handed to them and put it into a human body!!

But again, there we go with the logic thing.
I must remember not to do that, it makes my brain hurt.

Belle and Phillip, Belle and Shawn, ENOUGH already.
The three of them should just move to Utah and become poligamists.
Then Belle could have two idots at her beck and call.

Ah, yes. Prevuze almost got me this morning too. I was "this close" to choking, trying not to spray coffee when I got to the Lucas/EJ picture. All great pics today!

"They decide Pocket will need a regular name when he grows up." How about NOW?! Keep calling him Pocket long enough he'll think that IS his name.

Shawn flashes his teeth Bo-style. Yep, Mayfield. That's why we call Snarly's son, Snarly Jr. Or, just Jr. for short. HAHAHA

Along with everyone else's problems with the transplant, I have one with when Andre got to Benjy. He was at the fitness center, dressed as Andrea, with Lumi when Benjy showed up at Bo & Hope's. Are the writers trying to tell us that in the 10 minutes Lucas was gone from Sami Andre took out Lucas, tied him up in a car, got two Rottweilers to guard him, found Benjy (immediately knew where he was?), took him to an alley, cut out his liver, dumped him, got the liver to the hospital and then returned to the fitness club to lock in EJami while STILL IN DRAG?? TLT Extreme.

Great Prevuze! The II links are getting intriguing.

I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. Kill, kill, KILL.

Another great blast from the past. Gives DROOL's "Alice's Restaurant" a whole new layer of meaning. 'Course, now that song will be running through my head all day. LOLOL

Now, the big question, who should go with Phil?
Billie - intelligent, no job, Phil's brother, been investigating this incident, background as a cop & ISA agent.
OR
Belle - clueless, engaged to a guy who hates Phil, has a small child, is supposed to be starting nursing school.

Yeah, no question. Let's choose the character the writers feel will create the most idiotic, senseless, plot complications!

Thanks Prevuze, I love being able to vent here!

Applecheeks, I was thinking the same thing about Andre's apparent ability to be in two places at once. Sloppy writing.

But now I'm wondering. Is it possible that Tony is working both sides? Was it sloppy writing, or was it a hint? Maybe one of those "Andres" was Tony.

Yes, this Andre/Tony thing has me wondering. Stefano is turning the reigns over to Tony??

I think perhaps Andre had one of his "minions" do the dirty liver work -- he wouldn't be stupid enough to risk his beloved Stafano's life with an improperly extracted organ. OMG, what am I doing?!??!?? I'm trying to infuse logic into DROOL yet again!!! Will I never learn???

Ok So if Andre took our Benjy's liver wouldn't Benjy be dead. Don't we need are livers, it is not like a gall bladder.?

7:30 AM  
Anonymous Bulldog said...

I believe they only took a section of the liver. And since Andre was with Lumi I assumed it was Rolf who miraculously knew where Benjy was and did the deed. Until he got a call from someone saying the liver was on the way. If they hadn't offed poor Bart I would've thought they had him do it.

I'm glad I wasn't sipping my coffee yet when I saw Jenni's picture of Pard in Squints' pants. HAHAHAHA

And I laughed so loud the dogs came running in to see what was happening when I got to Patch saying he wasn't prepared for Hope to ask him the parenting question AGAIN. Jeez, woman, enough already!!

Prevuze, another excellent edition today! :D

What gets me is Belle going off on Jr. that they were going to make decisions together or else and then she decides to go off with Phil without even consulting him.

Maybe if we're lucky the plane will get diverted in a tropical storm (over Oklahoma) and they'll end up on Melaswen, never to be heard from again.

Jr. had a point when he questioned Belle about why SHE had to go, why not Kate,Chelsea or an adult that won't fly off the handle? I know they said Billie was needed at the University, but for what? Italian translation? (just a joke)And it still rankles that they got safe house guest information off the Internet. H*ll, hotels won't even tell you a person's room number let alone post thier guest list on the Internet. Bang, smack, crash.That was me, knocking my head on my desk trying to smack logical thought processes out of
it.

Has Lexie been reinstated at the hospital?

Second mention in as many days for the whereabouts of Claire. Where's Ciara?

They mentioned in today's feed that she is installing a security system at the University. I mean, doesn't it figure that any university which would admit Belle would also be dumb enough to install Bumbling Billie's Burglar Boobytrap?

Has Lexie been reinstated at the hospital?

No. She's just helping out with Benjy. Poor guy.

Where's Ciara?

Upstairs asleep. It's one of the worst cases of African trypanosomiasis Salem has ever seen.

Applecheeks, if you look at the map you'll see Bo and Hope's is only 2 1/2 blocks from Titan (where the health club is) and Titan is only 3 blocks from the the hospital.
Bearing in mind the transplant into Stephano took all of, what 15 min? 10 min to take one out and get it to the hospital is completely beliveable! LMAO

My hub made the suggestion that DOOL should take a cue from 24 and make each day's episode one hour in real time.
I told him that would be impossible since things like reality and time don't exist in Salem!!

Wow - what a prevuze today!!! Love it Love it Love it....

Rumors are flying about Sami asking Lucas for an annulment. That'd be sad. But then again - what else is there to write about.

While we're beating to death the liver theft, how nice that the thief carefully carved off just a portion of the liver. You'd think a hack would just yank the whole thing.

Anyone else hear Hope request Long story short?" from Jr.?? Long story short on Daze?! I can't believe she was able to utter that phrase in less than a week!
