The Patron Saint Of Coeds
Patch goes off the deep end, "DON'T TALK TO HER LIKE THAT!"
Stephanie rages on while Jeremy and Patch get into it. Jeremy tries to calm things down, "Let me explain, sir..."
"CUT THE 'SIR' CRAP," screams Patch. He turns to Stephanie, "Pick a category, theft, fraud, identity theft..." She rants and tells him he had no right to do this. Patch says, "Do yourself a favor, baby. Throw this jerk out with the rest of the garbage."
Stephanie asks, "What are you saying? You want us to leave together? "
Jett tells Chelsea it's not easy asking her this, and if he had other options he'd use them. She argues and tells him to go find those other options. He says she can step in and help out or stand by and watch Stephanie get burned, "What's it gonna be, Chelsea?"
Nick looks into Roman's room as Kate comes up. He tells her she is late. "I didn't know I was on the clock," says Kate.
"Shut up," he orders, "I'm doing the talking."
"Uh-oh," says Kate, "I guess the worm has turned."
"No," says Nick, "The worm has arrived." He tells Kate he has just been fired. He came clean and told the hospital authorities about the fake DNA report. He assures Kate no one else knows about her involvement. Kate wonders why he kept her out of it. "I had my reasons," he says.
"So here it comes," says Kate, "What do you want? Another job?"
Nick says, "Do what I want and your secret stays safe, or else I expose you."
"And what do you want," asks Kate.
"The Chelsea, Billie, Kate trifecta," says Nick.
Sami stands over the unconscious Roman and says this is her fault because she wanted to end the feud, "I have to stop them. My dad is the last Brady the DiMeras will ever hurt."
The argument in the pub continues. Patch thinks Jeremy is just trying to make excuses for what he has done. Stephanie tries to defend him but Patch tells her to let Jeremy talk. Jeremy insists he has turned his life around. Stephanie chimes in and says she already knew all of this, "I'm sure there is nothing in the report Jeremy hasn't told me already." Patch drops his jaw. Jeremy wiggles and sweats.
Chelsea insists Stephanie is just along for the ride. Jett says it's a pretty dangerous ride. Chelsea is thrilled he wants to involve her in it. He promises he won't let anyone hurt her. "Except you," she asks, "Hey – are you gonna lie to me again?" He says sometimes his job gets in the way of more important things, like being honest with someone he cares about. He tells her to forget it. She's off the hook. "So what now," she asks, "Are you gonna pout?"
"I have to admit," says Jett, "I'm kind of disappointed." He says Stephanie is in for a fall. Chelsea says she's innocent, but Jett tells her Jeremy could have her involved in illegal things with out her knowing about it, "This happens to girls like her all the time. They're in for a fall and they don't even know it."
Nick hands Kate a box with the $50K in it and says what he wants is for Kate to give it to Chelsea and tell her it's from her. Kate wants to know how Nick got the money. He assures her it's legal, but won't tell her, "Deposit it, write a check, give it to her. You got all that? God, this feels great."
Sami and Belle talk things out. It's pretty much the same as listening to Casey and Yogi talk things out. They wonder how they are going to keep their kids safe from the DiMeras. Sami tells Belle the DNA tests were bogus and the twins are Lucas'. Belle is thrilled, but Sami says all it means is Stefano doesn't want to rip them from her, "All he wants to do now is kill our entire family. It's kill or be killed, Belle. We have to stop them before they get us."
Patch challenges Stephanie. He thinks she's covering for him. Jeremy says he told her a few weeks after they met. "So dating a felon is no big deal to you," he asks.
"If it's a problem for you, then that's your deal," says Stephanie. She says she's an adult and people deserve second chances. She learned that from her mom. The Battle Hymn of the Republic plays in the background as Jeremy waves the flag and insists he has learned his lesson, because he loves Stephanie. He holds out his hand.
Patch ignores it, gets in his face and growls, "You do anything to hurt her and jail will look like a trip to paradise."
"Fair enough," says Jeremy. He decides to leave so Patch and Stephanie can talk things out. Stephanie wants to know why Patch didn't shake Jeremy's hand. He tells her he doesn't like being conned. He says the whole thing was an act.
She accuses him of being a hypocrite, "We should be OK with the fact that you stole John's kidney or put a knife to Uncle Bo's neck on that island. Way to be fair, Dad."
Nick tells Kate how he won the money. She says if he gives it to Chelsea this way he won't get any credit. She wonders if this is a money-laundering scheme. Nick tells her it's just a gift. Kate wonders what he is getting out of this.
"Something you probably won't understand," says Nick, "Peace of mind. It's something I haven't felt in a really long time."
"That's because you lost a big piece of mind when the bomb went off."
Belle tries to talk Sami out of her one-woman vendetta. Marlena walks in and the girls start to whisper. Marlena says she has good news. Roman has been upgraded from critical to stable. She wishes her daughters were stable, too. Sami vows from now on if the DiMeras hurt them, they will hurt the DiMeras back, "The only way we get through this is if we pick off the DiMeras one-by-one, starting with Stefano."
Patch reminds Stephanie his brain was rewired when he did those things. Stephanie insists Jeremy was young when he made his mistakes and he has changed. "I'll treat him like a prince right after you dump him," says Patch.
"You didn't get much from me, but you sure got that stubborn streak," he says, "Thank God you didn't get my looks, though." Stephanie insists she is nothing like Patch. She says Jeremy tried to be a gentleman tonight and Patch rejected him.
"He was positively oozing charm," says Patch, "I admit, I've done some things that make that man look like a saint, but there is what a man does and how he feels about what he does. Jeremy is making a living on someone else's dime." Stephanie says he's jealous because he couldn't cut it. "OK," says Patch, "I've already heard he's a better man." She apologizes for the remark. Patch lectures, "Never be sorry for saying what you think and feel. I know if you stay with Jeremy he's gonna hurt you real bad."
Jett tells Chelsea all she has to do is get Stephanie to talk. He wouldn't ask if he had other options. She says that's a tough decision. If she helps, she wants to quit Touch The Sky. She will be his narc but not work for him and Jeremy any more.
"You are the patron saint of coeds," says Kate. She tells Nick to do it himself. Nick threatens to tell Lucas about the Kate's blackmail. Kate relents and agrees to do it, "What is it they say about a fool and his money?" Nick says this money will help Chelsea with college and he will know he had a part in it. He says he really fears Chelsea turning into someone like Kate. He turns, gets in the elevator, smiles, waves and the doors close.
Marlena doesn't want to hear Sami's plan to bring down Stefano. Sami says her kids won't survive if she doesn't do something about the DiMeras. She states the obvious, "The police haven't been able to do anything." Sami rants on.
"You're upset," says Lucas.
The raging sea that Sami has become calms for a moment, "Actually, I'm not upset at all. I have to protect my children. The best way I can think of is to kill Stefano DiMera." GOOD HEAVENS, WE JUST WENT THROUGH ALL THAT IMPASSIONED ANGST ABOUT HOW THIS SICKCHICK COULDN'T KILL EJ BECAUSE SHE IS NOT A KILLER AND NOW HER NEW HOBBY IS KILLING STEFANO. GMAB! AILEEN WUORNOS HAD FEWER ISSUES.
|Scientists today announced the creation of the newest man-made element, Samium, so named because it is so damned unstable.|
Jett says Chelsea can't quit. Jeremy would see through it and get suspicious. "You are using me like Jeremy uses Stephanie," she says.
"It's not the same thing," says Jett.
Kate says to herself, "You win some, you lose some." She hesitates, "And you win some again."
Sami insists she is going to kill Stefano. Marlena and Belle decide this would be a good time to go for coffee. "Bring lots of Prozac when you come back," says Lucas. Sami rants. The only way they will have peace is to get rid of the DiMeras. Lucas says Billie is installing a security system. Sami thinks they will be stuck in their apartment and she is sick of it, "We can fight or hide, AND I WANT TO FIGHT! AND KILL! KILL! I WANT TO KILL! "
Patch says he never would have made it back without Stephanie. He puts his hand on her arm but she jerks away, "You aren't back." Patch says he can't accept Jeremy. Stephanie says everyone in the family accepted Patch when he came back. She believes in Jeremy.
Patch says he doesn't, "I could get over some of the stuff on his rap sheet, but I'm a little hung up on this one right here." He points to the sheet.
Stephanie reads, "Fraud, that's just another word for stealing."
"He set up a scam to get money for kids with cancer," says Patch, "Sick kids. He went to honest people and took their money. You want to know where it went? To a high-end condo and a sports car worth a fortune."
"He's the guy I love."
"Why do you love him?"
"You love Mom," says Stephanie, "This is right."
Patch says Jeremy doesn't come off like a guy looking for a second chance. He comes off like a guy who doesn't think he will get caught again. He asks her to walk away. She says she can't do that, "I have to walk away from you instead." She leaves.
Marlena and Belle talk out in the hall. Marlena notices things are quiet in Roman's room, "Sami is scary when she is quiet." Marlena doesn’t know if Sami will actually go after Stefano. She says Sami is so upset she didn't notice Mount Brady on Belle's finger. Marlena decides to have an engagement party for Belle to help take Sami's mind off of killing people. Belle don' wanna. Marlena wonders if something is wrong. WHAT? WITH BELLE? SOMETHING WRONG WITH BELLE? THAT WOULD BE A REAL SWITCH, WOULDN'T IT? Marlena still cherishes the award she won from NASA for raising a couple of space cadets. "If you're concerned about getting married, this is the time to say something," says Marlena.
"I know you're upset," says Lucas, "But I don't think it's time to break out the Uzis. I promise we will win this." He kisses her. Sami calms down.
Stephanie is on the phone. She cries and tells Chelsea she's fine, "It's just my allergies." She must be allergic to the truth. "I could use a friend right now." Chelsea says she is at the pier. Stephanie tells her not to go anywhere. She says Jeremy is the problem and she will talk when she gets there.
Chelsea hangs up and tells Jett Stephanie is meeting her. He says not to tell Stephanie she knows Jeremy is dirty. Chelsea promises she won't. "After this is over," says Jett, "We can talk about us."
"There is no us," snorts Chelsea, "There never was. I'm just your informant, only I don't get paid and the perks aren't really that good. After you nail Jeremy, I don't ever want to see you again."
Jett takes it well. Who wouldn't? He walks away.
Belle says she loves Shawn but things are tough. Money is tight. They don't have a place of their own and Shawn is happy working at the garage. They won't be able to save money quickly. He wouldn't even go to the interview Phillip set up.
"What are you doing to help," asks Marlena.
"I'm taking care of Claire."
"Many women with kids go back to work," says Marlena.
Belle gasps, "WORK?" She faints.
Sami comes back down from her tantrum. She says she feels better but the twins are kicking. Lucas says that's because their mother is so upset. He tells her to relax. Sami insists she hates the DiMeras. Lucas says the DiMeras hate the Bradys because they never surrender.
BEEEEEEPPP! Roman's machines sound the alarm. Sami ramps it up again and runs around the room blithering in panic. Lucas runs to get the nurse, "I'll get one for Roman, too."
Stephanie and Chelsea talk. Stephanie says Jeremy was perfect at the dinner and her dad was awful. She hates her dad. She tells Chelsea about the background check and Jeremy's record. She says it's all petty stuff and wasn't a secret to her. Stephanie has decided to move out. Chelsea says if she needs anything at all to let her know.
Stephanie smiles, "You kill me, but I love you. See ya." Stephanie leaves.
Chelsea calls Nick, "So... how much do you hate me?"
"I need help and didn't know who else to call."
"Just tell me where you are, and I will be there," says Nick.
The doctor defibrillates Roman, and then Sami. He says Roman has fluid around his heart, "Get him to the OR now!"
Sami runs around screaming like a little girl. Sorry for the redundancy. "They've killed my dad! They've killed my dad!" FF.
|In order to become bipolar, how many poles would Sami have to lose?|
Jeremy tells Stephanie, "When we do move in together I'm kind of hoping it's as husband and wife."
Chelsea asks, "You would do that for me?" Nick says, "I would do anything for you. Don't you know that by now?"
Marlena asks, "Lucas, what's the matter?" Lucas says, "She took off." Marlena asks, "What do you mean she took off?" Lucas says, "She's gone. I think we both know where she is headed."
Sami 'Rape is bad but murder is just dandy' Brady points a gun at Stefano and says, "I decided it's time for justice so I'm going to start with you, Stefano DiMera."
