Roobish

The sorority girls stand around comforting Cordy outside Dean Lochlan's office. Cordy whines, "I can't do it. I can't testify. You guys hate me." They try to reassure her. The dean comes out. Billie asks for a few more minutes. The dean is reluctant. Billie spouts the student's bill of rights section by section. The rest of the girls arrive. Cordy continues to apologize. Chelsea tells her to be strong.

Cordy explodes, "This didn't happen to you!" Chelsea tells her about her episode with Dr. Pervert.

Stephanie zones and flashes to her night from hell. Chelsea finishes her story. She tells Cordy Nick saved the day. She says she went through a lot of mental pain, but it helped when she reported the incident and the hospital fired Dr. Pervert.

Sami tells Colleen to leave her alone. Colleen isn't about to leave. She thinks Sami is the only one who can get through to EJ. "He doesn't even want me around," insists Sami.

"That's a load o' roobish," says Colleen.

The crash team works on EJ. Outside, Stefano wanders as Tony comes up. Stefano prays. Tony asks, "What makes you think God is going to listen to you?"

"I have connections," says Stefano.

Tony didn't realize Stefano had become so spiritual. The doctor interrupts and gives Stefano a rundown on EJ's condition. If they can stabilize him he has a good chance. Prevuze tip of the day: take that one to Vegas. No matter what the odds, bet on EJ to survive.

The doctor leaves. Stefano thinks EJ has given up hope. That's why he called Tony. Stefano thinks Tony can restore EJ's will to live. Tony thinks Stefano spoiled EJ. Kate interrupts as they argue. Stefano asks for Kate's help. He wants Kate to convince EJ to want to live. Kate thinks she is the last person EJ wants to see, "The last time he saw me, I had a gun pointed at him." Stefano says this is a way for Kate to redeem herself. Kate agrees.

Tony taunts Stefano for being at the end of his life and realizing it's a fiasco.

Sami and Colleen argue. Colleen thinks Sami is afeered of her feelings, "We'ere the same, you an' I. Two pees in a poode. Not 'cause we looke alike. We have the streength. The passion. The manic depression."

Sami walks over to her CD player and turns up the music. The walls rattle. Colleen says she isn't leaving no matter how loud it gets. Lucas blasts out of the bedroom and tells her to dial it down, "You'll wake the babies!"

Sami apologizes as Phillip comes to their door. Lucas says he asked him to stop by. He and Phillip go outside to talk man-to-motormouth.

Colleen asks if Sami would be able to live with herself if EJ dies.

Outside, Lucas asks Phillip about the gun. Phillip isn't giving him any information until Lucas tells him why he wants to know.

Billie tells the sorority sisters to let Cordy make the decision on her own. She doesn't think this is the time to pressure her. So Billie proceeds to pressure her. Cordy wonders why someone else can't testify. They claim they don't know who the other girls are. Cordy gives her family's sob story: her dad worked three jobs and her mother cleaned houses so she could go to college, "I can't do this to them. They don't have the money to fight it."

Chelsea suggests a fund-raiser, forgetting that's what got them into this mess in the first place.

"Frankie would take the case," says Stephanie.

"Yeah," says Chelsea, "But don't we want to win it?"

Cordy worries about having her name dragged through the mud if she testifies. She says she can't even look at herself any more, "You guys have no idea."

Stephanie says, "Actually, I do." A hush falls over the room.

Chelsea looks at Stephanie and realizes, "OMG!"

Stephanie pulls the copout of the century, "Not me! My mom. It happened a long time ago. Mom didn't even tell me about it for a while. She said she felt ashamed. She was afraid people would look at her differently."

Billie says Kayla told her testifying was one of the hardest things she ever did, but it turned out to being a huge weight lifted off her shoulders. Billie tells Cordy she has to do what's right for herself.

Cordy does a 180. She decides she'll do it. Ford sticks his head out of the dean's door and gives Cordy the stare of death. Cordy bolts.

Colleen and Sami keep up the same kinverseeshun without saying a meaningful word.

Phillip and Lucas argue about the gun. Lucas says, "Give me back the gun so we can move on. I want to get rid of it."

Phillip says, "I guess I did you a favor, bro. The gun is gone."

Kate walks into EJ's room. She says he gave Stefano quite a scare and also says she should apologize for yesterday. She makes excuses but says she would never have fired the gun. She doesn't want him to think she is the one who put him there, "I wish there were something I could do for you... or with you.

"There is," says EJ, "You could bring me something."

Two sisters bring Cordy back in. The dean comes out. Billie tells the dean about Ford giving Cordy the death stare. Dean Lochlan says if Ford came out of his office and intimidated her, he was unaware of it. Billie accuses him of prejudging. Crawford struts. Morgan steps up and says she will testify.

Sami and Colleen talk about feeelin's. Colleen wants Sami to tell EJ she loves him.

EJ lies in his bed and drones, "Samantha..."

Colleen says, "If ya tell him ya love him and he comes aroond, Stefano will be greetful all the Days Of Our Lives."

"What do you mean our lives," asks Sami, "You're dead."

"So they say," says Colleen, "So they say."

EJ stares into space, "If you want something, you take it. I took Samantha and look what happened. I can't force her to love me. I want to see my father. He's the only one I can count on."

Dean Lochlan invites Morgan into his office. Cordy hugs her and wishes her luck.

Sloan struts and taunts. "All right! We get front row seats to see Ford get fried." The dean says Morgan may invite four girls to come in with her. Morgan selects Sloan, Carmen, Stephanie and Chelsea.

Stephanie declines to go in, "I'll stay and cry in my beer with Cordy."

Sami says she won't lie to EJ. Colleen says, "Talling him ye loove him won't change how ya feel aboot Lucas, unless it's treew."

Phillip says he threw the gun in the lake. He thinks Lucas wants to see if the gun had been fired. Lucas agrees, "I have to know."

Stephanie asks Billie if they have a chance. Billie says something about a snowball and hell. Then she launches into the Days Of Our Lives / NBC date rape Public Service Announcement. After her harangue, she says she has to go check on Jett. She tells Stephanie to be strong for Cordy.

The Spanish Inquisition begins on the other side of the door. Morgan gives her story. Crawford rips her apart like an Arby's meat slicer in overdrive.

Kate comes out of EJ's room and tells Stefano EJ wants to see him. Stefano goes in. EJ says he loves Stefano, but can't live like this. He wants Stefano to get him a gun.

Lucas wants to know if Kate's gun was fired. Phillip is silent. That's OK. Lucas can do enough talking for both of them.

Sami and Colleen regeeeergitate the same old stuff.

Sami's phone rings. Kate says she has to get to the hospital, "It's EJ. He's dying."

The girls all come out of Dean Lochlan's office. Crawford slaps Ford on the back, "Let's go get a celebratory beer. And maybe we can score some Spanish Fly, too." The girls who were inside say Crawford made Ford look like the victim. Chelsea says this is far from over. They will make sure everyone on the campus knows what Ford did, "It's time for retaliation."

Phillip says most of the time Kate deserves what she gets, "But don't sell her out."

Suddenly, Sami busts out of the door. Lucas asks what's up. Sami says she has to run a few errands. Lucas asks, "How long are you gonna be gone?" No answer.

Chelsea wants a picture of Ford. She says they'll work up posters and cover the entire campus with flyers. The girls aren't up for it. They think it get them in trouble.

Chelsea inspires them with her sisterhood speech, "Don't forget our motto: Integrity, Honesty, Sisterhood, Stupidity!" That does it. All for one and one for all. They all do the team handpile.

Stephanie pouts and doesn't join in. She flashes back to the night of the living dead. They all coax her and she finally throws her hand in.

Lucas says he wouldn't do anything to hurt Kate, "But if she shot EJ there is nothing either of us can do for her." He goes back inside.

Phillip pulls the gun out of his pocket and fondles it.

Stefano staggers out. He tells Tony and Kate EJ asked for a gun, "I will not rest until I find out who has done this and when I do God help them."

"Don't drag me into this," says God.

Stefano wants Tony out of his sight. Tony looks into EJ's room and leaves. Sami bops in. Stefano tells her not to upset EJ as she goes into his room.

Sami enters and picks up the picture of her and Johnny D. She tells EJ she's sorry they fought. She just wants to help. He asks her to go. She refuses. "Go and be with Lucas," says EJ, "He's the one you love."

Sami asks, "What if he's not?"

I find it annoying that while NBC is doing this big ol public service announcement episode about how date rape is a crime and women shouldn't be afraid to testify; at the same time, they are scaring the hell out of any women who actually might have been date raped by having Ford intimidate Cordy and Stephanie clam up and not even report her experience.

Way to send mixed messages!

And yes we all know what's going to happen with EJAMI.
She'll say she loves him, he'll pretend to stay paralyzed, she'll actually fall in love, she'll find out he's been lying, get all PO'd, and the audience will:
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Oh and I know it won't help but:
SAMI GIVE YOUR DAUGHTER A FREAKIN NAME ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for that one Prevuze. Now if only the mortgage lenders had come to you for advice about sub prime loans, all of our 401Ks would look a lot better.

"Go and be with Lucas," says EJ, "He's the one you love."

Sami asks, "What if he's not?"


Music blares in the background. It’s a little Lovin’ Spoonful.

Did you ever have to make up your mind
Pick up on one and leave the other behind
It's not often easy and not often kind
Did you ever have to make up your mind


Did you ever have to finally decide
Say yes to one and let the other one ride
There's so many changes and tears you must hide
Did you ever have to finally decide

Here’s a little help Sami. Choose EJ. At least, you will be able to save your eardrums from exploding. He doesn’t yell with quite the regularity of Lucas.

I can’t believe it. Phillip still has the gun.

Kayla didn't tell Billie she was raped, she told Stephanie.
That girl needs to just come forward already before someone else gets attacked.
Oh wait.
That's probably the plan.

What a terrible thing for the writers to do about the rape... We had to watch EJ, basically rape Sami and NEVER, (to this day), be punished for his actions - and now Ford walks out scott free and all smug????? I think the male writers have forgotten how many viewers are women and this is sooooo degrading to have the act of rape minimized!
They can do all of the 'public announcements' they want, but actions speak louder than words. Why can't they, just once, show the legal system working? And rape is a crime! Not to be decided by the 'Dean' of a school. He needed to be arrested and charged by law! Who cares what the 'Dean' says! (Stupid!) Again, minimizing the act of rape!

I have said all along Sami has feelings for EJ. It seems like the writers are drawing closer and closer to this.
I just question the fact that Sami has 2 newborns at home with Lucas... Yet, she is able to be running around the city and the hospital? Obviously the writers are MEN! Hello, she just gave birth.... are you clueless? Ha Ha!

Finally, this whole Lucas/Phillip/Kate thing... who cares. Lucas disowned her so why would he care? Ha Ha!

It never ceases to amaze me the complete and utterly ridiculous ideas these writers have. They surely are on something!

Prevuze keep up the good work!

I've given up on EJ getting punished (it was obvious from the start he never would be); however, I'm really disappointed at how they handled the Ford/Cordy matter.

Date-rape is the most common form of rape and they should have shown how it is really handled - that there is a CONFIDENTIAL investigation, that the ONLY time the other sides' lawyers get to question you is during the deposition and, if needed, during a trial.

They've introduced the whole teeny bopper (?brain) storylines to attract a younger crowd and they can't even educate them? I know, I know, people shouldn't be educated by television, but come one!

They'll plan some kind of revenge on Ford and he'll come clean. In real life, this kind of "revenge" would most likely end up with somebody getting killed.

Good thing I don't watch the show anymore - Prevuze FTMFW!!

I think what will prompt Stephanie to testify is being pregnant. I think she'll get knocked up from the rape by Ford Decker and be forced to say something.

I still don't get how she went from fiesty race car driver to babbling brook when Kayla & Steve were quarantined in the hospital - to bimbo with bad hair.... What happened to her "independance" in her personality?

Regarding Sami/EJ - I think those results were faked.

what is FTMFW?

I think I need new glasses - when Prevuze wrote that Colleen said "two peas in a poode," I read "two peas in a poodle."

Anonymous Anonymous said...

I agree, Angel. I really can't believe that Sami took EJ's word about the paternity of her baby and didn't demand to see the results for herself. Or why didn't Lucas demand to see them? They got a note delivered to their hotel room from EJ and neither of them ever questioned it.

And whatever happened with the envelope marked "Samantha Brady Roberts -- DNA Results" that Stefano opened? I'm thinking now that it couldn't have been a second DNA test on the twins because he seemed surprised when EJ told him the boy was his.

I love the title of this episode. Colleen's accent cracks me up when I watch the show because I remember how Prevuze wrote it. HAHAHHA

This was before my time, so could Deb or someone tell me who raped Kayla in the past?

Thanks, Prevuze, for the chuckles today!

I think Jack raped Kayla, they were married. But I'm not totally sure all the details but it's something like that.

Jack and Kayla were married, but had never done the marital deed. (Kayla married Jack to give him a reason to live, and because Steve was pushing Kayla away from him and into Jack's arms.)Having gotten back together with Steve eventually, they were were seeing each other behind Jack's back and a photographer caught them. The night of the election (Jack was running for Assemblyman) the photographer handed Jack the pictures and when he saw them later on, he was, crushed. At home, he wanted to make love to his wife, but of course, Kayla refused him. He then showed Kayla the pictures and everything went downhill then.

Bulldog, Jack raped Kayla back when they were married.
They of course got over it, and remained friends.

cfish, I too wonder what was up with the Samantha Brady DNA results envelope.

Stefano certainly seemed surprised when EJ told him he MIGHT be the father of one of the twins. But you never know about DOOL writers.

In yesterdays episode, Kayla and Steve are in the church. Kayla ask Steve if he remembered that they got married in that church. My husband, who has watched Days for years said they did not get married in a church. They were married on a boat. What?!! Could this be a writers mistake? NOOOOOO not on DOOL.

8:48 PM  
Anonymous Salemnite said...

To those complaining about Samantha's babies DNA test. St. Marlena supervised the test herself? Stefano had his own people the the results for him, because Stefano became suspicious of EJ's manic need to rush Samantha to the alter. When EJ boasted that the Twins didn't bind Samantha to Lucas. That raised Steffi's brow.

It makes me laugh to see everyone upset that the writers aren't handling rape properly yada, yada. Come on people, they bring characters back from the dead constantly, DNA tests are always fast or messed up, no one works but they all dress great and supposedly have real jobs. It is a soap it is not REAL!

Steve and Kayla were married in a boat, but that wedding was invalid due to Steve's (gag) wife Marina came to town. He inadverdently forgot to tell Kayla he was married. He thought she died (of course!) They had a second wedding , but Kayla was arrested before she had a chance to say her vows. She was arrested for supposedly killing Marina. The third and final wedding was at St. Luke's.

I wouldn't be surprised the way Hope is blabbing it to everyone. I'm surprised Mags hasn't gotten wind of this juicy gossip.

I gotta say, I was offended with the way Days is handling the date rape and the comments made by Ford, the Dean, etc. Why is this being handled by the school? Why aren't the police involved? Why isn't a victim's advocate with Cordy? Why didn't one of her beloved sisters drive her to the meeting? Where are her parents?

Yes, I know it's TV, but c'mon! This isn't "Passions"!!!!!
