The Only Thing Missing Is A Pole
One of the sisters who is actually in college getting an education helps her out, "pestle."
"Whatever," says little Einstein.
Carmen says, "I can't believe you actually broke into his room." With her history he's lucky she didn't burn it down.
Slone asks what drug Ford uses. Chelsea struggles, "Something-lax... Ex-lax! "
Morgan looks at the picture of the bottle, "That would be Somulax."
Chelsea also shows them the picture of the journal and they talk about the rankings. One of the girls asks why he would keep a journal. "Because," says Chelsea, "He's a disgusting pig in love with himself."
Meanwhile Ford dresses.
Chelsea says Bo told her they couldn't use the pictures because she and Nick broke into his room to get them. Carmen asks, "Can't the police do something?"
Chelsea says, "No and that's why we have to go after Ford ourselves."
Stephanie closes up at the Cheatin' Heart. She shows Max her last big tip, "They really appreciate good service."
"What did he leave you," says Max, "a $10?" Stephanie holds up a $20. Max freaks, "That does it! We've got to have a ladies night here!"
Adrienne has to help Joey study. His grades have been a little too high lately. Max volunteers to close and tells Adrienne that Stephanie will help. Stephanie beams.
Sami comes out of her bedroom dressed in a revealing thingie. Lucas gets up from digging a baby bottle out from under the couch. He sees Sami and nearly faints. "Do you like it," asks Sami.
"The only thing missing is a pole," says Lucas. Sami doesn't appreciate his weak attempt at humor. Lucas recovers, "You look hot. Real hot." Lucas heats up himself, "Are you sure we should to this? It'll be the first time since you had the babies."
"I am ready to rock your world," says Sami.
Stefano wheels EJ down the hall. He rants about EJ not being at the mansion where he could get better care. EJ decides to stop and give Sami a surprise.
Stephanie says she doesn't mind sticking around. Adrienne runs out, "Oh good. Joey thanks you. I thank you. Goodbye."
Stephanie and Max. Alone again. Max apologizes for roping her into having to stay and work. Stephanie is oh, so happy to stay. She goes to work scraping goo off of a table.
Max watches, "Most girls wouldn't go near that crud."
Stephanie isn't subtle, "Meaning Morgan? You have to admit the girl is high maintenance."
"She's just used to having things I didn't grow up with," says Max, "It's actually kind of nice to have a night off from Morgan."
Chelsea tells the girls if they stick together they can take Ford down, "It won't be like it was in the dean's office."
As she encourages them, Ford turns on his iPod and prepares the wine. His latest victim walks into his room.
Chelsea charges up the sisters, "Who is with me on this?" They don't exactly all rush in at once to volunteer.
Sami and Lucas romp. Well Sami romps and Lucas yaks. He finally decides they should seize the moment. Sami seizes him. She rips open his shirt. Three guesses what happens next... We have the proverbial knock at the door. Amidst Lucas' protests, Sami gets up and looks through the peephole. Stefano! Sami panics, "What if something happened to EJ?"
"With any luck it did," says Lucas.
Sami decides to open the door. She whispers, "Button your shirt!"
No. Lucas isn't going to do that. It's time for the gratuitous DOOL eye-candy shot of the week. He takes the shirt off and throws it on the couch, "I don't mind showing him what we are up to." With Sami dressed the way she is, they would know anyway.
Sami opens the door. Stefano stands in back of EJ's wheelchair. EJ says, "Hello, darling. You're husband's home." Sami huffs.
Morgan is worried about what Ford might do to retaliate if they go after him. Another girl thinks they could get in trouble for this.
As they talk, Ford parties with his latest victim. He spikes her drink.
Chelsea keeps up the pitch. She has a plan, "What's the one thing Ford can't get enough of?"
"Besides that," she says, "Here's what we do – We offer ourselves in a package he can't resist and then we nail him."
Stefano asks, "Where is Giovanni?"
Lucas' hackles rise to the occasion, "His name is Johnny and he's asleep." Sami offers to bring him over later. Stefano insists he won't leave without his grandson. Lucas wants them out. EJ asks Stefano to let him handle this.
"If you insist," says Stefano as he leaves.
EJ promises he won't allow Stefano to go to the airport with Johnny D. He promises to be there with Stefano and his grandson the whole time. Sami agrees. Lucas struts, postures and blows his stack. Sami goes to get Johnny.
"I don't want you barging in here unannounced any more," says Lucas.
"What are you suggesting," asks EJ, "That I have to make an appointment to see my wife? As of now she lives across the hall with me." Lucas stews.
Chelsea presses. The bait has to pretend she's drunk, and then they will spike Ford's drink.
Stephanie and Max dance around each other. He fixes sodas. Stephanie suggests doing this again sometime. "We make a hell of a team," says Max.
"We sure do, Uncle Max." He asks about Jeremy. Stephanie zones.
Sami comes out with Johnny. Stefano is back. Sami gives him to EJ and Stefano makes over him. Lucas simmers and walks off. Sami suggests maybe she should go with Stefano and EJ. They tell her that's not necessary and leave.
Lucas has a meltdown, "This makes me sick. So much for our night to remember. Is this how it's gonna be from now on?"
As they both walk to the door and stare across the hall, Sami reminds Lucas she EJ's his wife. "Thanks for reminding me," he growls, "You shouldn't have let them take him." Sami decides to go over there and set some ground rules.
Stephanie tells Max Jeremy is out of the picture, "I don't know what I ever saw in that guy."
"You saw the bad boy in him," says Max, "That's what good girls like."
Stephanie is heartbroken, "Are you saying I'm not bad?"
"Oh," says Max, "You're the baddest, especially your judgment." She wonders if Morgan has any faults under her diamond tiara. "I've actually seen her sneak candy into a movie," says Max, "And the other day she used one of the worst four-letter words I've ever heard – DOOL."
Stephanie asks, "What you said about Morgan earlier... is that true? That it was nice to have a break from her?" Max stares.
The girls mock Chelsea's plan. Chelsea says they have to do it together or it won't work, "So each girl will put a tiny bit of drug into his drink." Cordy just can't do this.
Ford gets forward. His latest victim stops his advances.
The sisters decide they are all in. Carmen gets sinister and decides they should come up with things like were in the movie "Saw." Chelsea tries to convince Cordy to join them. Cordy decides she's in if they are just going to scare him.
EJ and Stefano make over Giovanni, who lies there like a wood block. Oh, sorry, he is a wood block. Sami watches as Stefano tells him he will grow up to be an imposing figure, "And all the girls in Italy will come after you."
Sami interrupts, "You are not taking my son to Italy! Do you understand?"
Chelsea promises they won't hurt Ford, but will just teach him a lesson. Of course the Jigsaw killer didn't kill his victims. He found ways for them to kill themselves. Goodbye Ford. Not that the DOOL writers would ever steal a plot.
Ford molests his semi conscious victim. She tells him to stop. Ford moves in.
The girls are in. All for one and one for all.
The victim begs. Ford attacks.
Chelsea and Morgan confront Slone and ask if she is the other Theta girl Ford raped. Slone is silent.
Max says he and Morgan are from completely different worlds, "You know, that first night I took her to the pub, she had never had chili fries before."
"If she ate chili fries from the pub, she'll never have them again either," says Stephanie.
Max goes on, "Do you know 'Sleepless is Settle is her favorite movie? I tried to watch that piece of..."
Stephanie stops him before he does more damage, "Watch it. I love 'Sleepless in Seattle.'"
Max nearly breaks his neck doing a 180, "She calls vegetables 'crudités.'"
"CRUD-ités is what I call chili fries at the pub."
"She vacations on the island of Bequia."
"I go there all the time."
"Me too," says Max, "Look, I know we're joking but don't tell her about this. I really like her and don't want to hurt her feelings."
"You're secret is safe with me," says Stephanie, as she makes notes for the front-page ad she will place in the Salem Enquirer detailing the conversation.
Stefano says, "Mrs. DiMera, you misunderstand. I will not separate the family. A boy needs his family. I want you to come to Florence with us."
Sami puts her foot down, "We're not moving to Italy." Stefano makes his pitch. Sami insists Johnny will grow up in America. End of discussion. HA! We only wish. Sami takes Johnny back to his new crib in EJ's apartment.
Stefano sighs, "She is going to be a problem."
"These are difficult circumstances," says EJ.
"Then I will handle things my own way," says Stefano. He shows himself out.
Slone swears she wasn't Ford's victim.
Back in Ford's den of sin, his latest victim cries. He gets in her face, "This stays between us. By the way, you were great tonight." The poor girl cries and runs.
Chelsea suggests Slone be their decoy. She isn't sure. Morgan and Chelsea say if Slone won't do it, Emily might. They go to talk to Emily, but Slone calls them back. She decides to do it, as long as they don't leave her alone with him.
Max... Stephanie... closer... closer... Suddenly, the jukebox starts up on its own. Max decides the thing is possessed. He takes her hand, but she jerks away and remembers her night from hell. Max is confused. Stephanie claims she got shocked. Max suggests trying again. It works better this time. Max suggests having some fun. They dance to "I will save a dance for you for the rest of my life."
EJ unpacks Johnny's bag. Sami comes out and says he's sleeping. EJ asks for his weight bag. Sami struggles with it, but brings it to him. He asks for a glass of water. Dutiful Sami hauls it over to him. He asks for peeled grapes...
Sami thinks a newborn might be too much for EJ and wonders if Johnny should stay with her tonight.
"I have a better idea," says EJ, "Why don't you stay here?"
Max and Stephanie dance. She wonders what Morgan would do if she walked in right now. Max says, "She knows I'm not the guy for her. And if she didn't realize that her parents would set her straight."
"Her parents are idiots."
"Yeah," says Max, "You'd think I'd fit right in." Max dips. Stephanie giggles. Chelsea interrupts. Stephanie jumps away from Max like he's on fire. Maybe he is. Chelsea tells Stephanie they need her back at the house. They've developed a plan to get Ford. Max gives her the OK to go. Stephanie apologizes, thanks him for the dance and leaves.
EJ tosses toys at Sami as he suggests she stay. Sami giggles. He asks her to bring Ali, too. Sami doesn't think that will work. She thinks he should hire a nurse to help him. He grabs her and pulls her into his lap, "I don't need a nurse when I have you."
Lucas walks in, "OMG."
The girls are all hush-hush while Slone calls Ford. She tells him she thinks the sisters have been unfair in accusing him. She says she has the sorority house all to herself tonight and invites him over. Ford says he is busy, but will clear his schedule for her. "I'll be waiting," says Slone.
Meanwhile, Ford's victim wanders the woods and cries.
"There is no turning back now," says Chelsea. Every single girl in the sorority turns and looks at Stephanie as if she just cut the cheese. Pan to Stephanie.
