Half Foam, Hold The Cow, Dry On Land

Sami stomps around the apartment in a rage. EJ tells her to cool it. Sami steams. She can't believe Lucas involved Will in this. EJ asks if it was Will on the phone. "No," says Sami, "I can't seem to get Will because Carrie and Austin either won't let him talk or won't go get him, and it would make too much sense for me just to call his cell phone."

EJ suggests giving him time. Sami doesn't think he will come around. Will blames her for everything. EJ asks if that's what Carrie told her. Sami says yes and launches into her best imitation of Carrie. Suddenly she's hit with the overpowering desire to haul EJ up to the rooftop and throw it down. Sami tells EJ about calling Will and telling him Lucas had been arrested, "He wasn't surprised which means Lucas told him everything before he left. The last thing he said was, 'tell dad I love him.' I think my son's given up on me."

EJ comforts and tells her Will is going through a tough time and loves her. Sami isn't sure, "He blames me. I may as well have pulled the trigger myself."

Moody Lucas comes in to see Kate. "I told you not to come," he growls.

"You need your family," says Kate.

"I'm a Horton," he grumbles.

"You're half Roberts," says Kate, "And half witted. And half a**ed"

Phillip joins them and says he has a plan, "The top legal minds formulated it."

"I was hoping you'd ask Mickey to represent me," says Lucas, "He needs the work."

Phillip says, "You need to plead not guilty due to insanity."

"Brilliant," says Kate, "Using the truth as a strategy."

Bo and Hope pose as a homeless couple. They sit in the cold and watch the CB DiMera building. Bo hands her a cup of coffee, "I got it just like you like it – Half foam... hold the cow..."

Hope completes the formula, "Dry on land... blah, blah, blah. I'm impressed." Bo wants to know why Crystal tried to lure Belle and Claire out. Rob shows up. Homeless Hope starts taking pictures with her expensive cell phone.

Marlena sits on her couch and goes through albums pining for John. Roman walks up and startles her. He says he rang the Belle and since she didn't answer he used his key and let himself in. He talks about the incredible life she and John had. Marlena just doesn't know how she will go on. Roman says she will be fine, "You've got a lot of years ahead of you, and a whole lot more behind you. John would say get out there and laugh and have a good time. And give your ex-husband(s) the key to your apartment to help expedite things."

Marlena just can't go out and have fun right now. It's too soon. Roman says she will do it in time. Marlena looks off in the distance, "I can almost feel something." Roman removes his hand. Marlena says she just has this sense John is around, "It feels like he's out there somewhere."

Roman asks, "You want to believe that John is still here?"

Marlena says, "What if he's alive?"

"This is Salem," says Roman, "The real shocker would be for him to be dead."

Stefano says, "Once you start this assignment, there is no turning back."

John the pawn says, "Understood." John wants to know when he can get out of there. Stefano reminds him he can't be seen in the town. John wants to know why.

Rob sees homeless Hope taking pictures. He comes over and tells them to go somewhere else. Crazy old Hope asks if he owns the place. Rob is silent. "I didn't think so," says Ma Brady, "We're staying." Rob stomps off. Hope tells Bo she got the picture. They will give it to Belle and if she recognizes him they will drag him in.

Marlena thinks there might be a chance John is alive. She goes through her (I use the term loosely) reasoning for this. Roman reminds her she saw John's squishification in person. We flash back to John playing the part of a bug on a windshield. Marlena says she can't get that scene out of her mind.

"Apparently," says Roman, "Neither can the writers."

Roman verbally goes back through John's tedious death. He says she has to realize there is no logical way he can be alive. Marlena rationally knows he's dead but...

Roman would bring John home if he could, "But I’m keeping the key to your apartment." He promises to find the killers and bring them to justice. He has an appointment but tells her to call if she needs him, "But, Marlena, you need to let John go."

Roman leaves. Marlena says, "No, I can't do that."

Stefano presses a buzzer, "Where the hell is he?" John asks if he knows people in Salem and will be recognized. Stefano dodges and tells him he is a fugitive. Rolf shows up.

John demands the truth, "I need to go out."

"You'd better let him," says Rolf, "He's not housetrained yet."

Stefano takes Rolf aside and says John is asking too many questions. Rolf says he can't raise the medication level – he's already at the maximum.

Across the room, John asks, "Did someone say something about drugs?"

Stefano asks why John is so anxious to get out. Rolf thinks maybe he is searching for someone. Stefano says Rolf assured him he would not remember. Rolf goes over and gently puts his hand on John's shoulder. John gives him a cold stare, slowly removes the hand and leaves the room with him.

"No way," says Lucas, "I don't want to hear it."

"You have somewhere better to go," asks Phillip. Lucas sits. Phillip says they have the evidence to put him away, "We have to establish mitigating circumstances. We have a psychiatrist who will testify you were insane." Lucas doesn't want any part of that. Kate tells him there is nothing to be embarrassed about.

Lucas asks, "What do you want me to do... Stand up in front of a judge and tell them the woman I love drove me nuts?"

Phillip says, "No one would buy it. Everyone knows you were bonkers before you even met her. But the best strategy would be for Sami to tell them She did it."

Sami bounces Johnny. EJ leers. He says how lucky the twins are to have such a wonderful mother. I guess they're shipping the twins to another mother. Sami beats herself up over Will. EJ offers to talk to him. Sami says she doesn't want him anywhere near Will.

Lucas says he won't blame Sami for this. Kate and Phillip try to convince him by rehashing all the details. "She made a fool out of you Lucas," says Kate.

"I am nobody's fool," says everybody's fool.

"You are acting crazy," says Phillip, "Temporarily insane perhaps?" He asks if Lucas is going to talk to Sami. Lucas is silent and Phillip says he has a meeting to get to. He leaves.

Kate turns on the afterburners. Lucas reminds her Sami isn't speaking to him. Kate suggests Lucas write a letter, "Your fate is in Sami's hands."

Bo and Hope huddle together in the cold. Crystal shows up. Bo runs up to her, "Salem PD! I want to ask a few questions."

Nick shows up at Marlena's place. She says she has a favor to ask, "It has to be kept confidential. I need to know if John is dead."

"Do you want me to exhume his body," asks Nick.

"No," says Marlena, "His body is not in the grave."

"I thought it smelled a little stale in here," says Nick.

Crystal says she has no ID on her. Bo says he thinks she was involved in a hit and run and an abduction in Europe. Hope reminds her of the message she gave Marlena. "I'm a psychic," says Crystal, "I see things."

"You're about to see the inside of a police car," says Bo.

Marlena says John's body was exhumed at her request and cremated. She didn't want the DiMeras to get it. She hands Nick an urn, "See if you can put the pieces back together." Nick agrees to do what he can, but says DNA evaluations are hard to perform with ashes. He can test to see if they are human, though. He takes the urn and turns to leave. As he opens the door, Roman shows up.

Roman tells Marlena Bo and Hope have picked up Crystal. He asks about the urn, "What's going on?"

Kate arrives at Sami's place. Sami opens the door. Kate says, "Well, it looks as if 'the Mrs.' is home."

Out in the hall, a couple of thugs walk by carrying a couch. EJ stops them and asks what is going on. One of the guys gives EJ a piece of paper. EJ reads, "I should have guessed." Sami comes out and asks what's up. "Apparently," says EJ, "Daddy needs a new couch. He is repossessing my furniture. Technically it's not mine. With the SEC problems and Myth-Ick demise, I signed things over to him." He tells the movers to put it back and hands them a wad-o-cash. He tells Sami he has to go take care of this.

Sami goes back inside and tells Kate she doesn't want anything to do with Lucas. She also doesn't want to talk to Kate. Kate says Lucas needs his wife's help.

"You mean his ex-wife," growls Sami.

"You really are a DiMera now," says Kate. She hands her the letter and says if she cares she will help. Kate leaves. Sami stews. She clutches the letter, and then opens and reads it.

"Dear Sami. I know you are angry with me and I am sorry. I made a mistake. We are all paying for it. All I wanted to was to live our lives in peace and love. I miss you and our family so much. I really need your help. Please call Phillip. He will set you up with my attorneys. We are a team and we can beat this. You are my only hope. You are my life. Don't ever forget that. Lucas." Sami cries.

Marlena clams up. Roman starts to run and catch Nick, but Marlena stops him and tells him John's ashes are in the urn, "He wanted them scattered over the poppy fields of Peru." Roman says he's worried about her. Marlena says she just has to know for sure if John is alive, so she's having Nick run tests. She insists Crystal is a legitimate psychic and figures she must know things about John. Roman thinks the only way she knows anything about John is that the DiMeras may have filled her in.

"There is only one way we can find out," says Roman.

"Let's go," says Marlena. And with that, Roy and Dale head out on another adventure.

EJ arrives at Stefano's place. Stefano offers EJ a drink. EJ asks him about the couch. "How did you put it," asks Stefano, "What is mine is mine and what is yours is yours. That is your mantra?" He rages about EJ keeping him away from his grandson.

"I see," says EJ, "My sofa for my son."

Stefano bellows, "Do you think this is a joke?"

EJ rants about the "project." He tells Stefano what he is doing is despicable.

Bo and Hope grill Crystal back at the station. They want to know how Crystal knew. "I'm a psychic," says Crystal. Bo accuses her of working for Stefano. Crystal says she is self-employed and has never met the owner of the building, "Either arrest me or let me walk."

Sami shows up and Phillip introduces the hotshot attorney Cameron Reece. Cameron says she understands there is some tension between Sami and her ex. Cameron tells her about the insanity defense.

Sami can't believe they're going to try to make Lucas out to be insane, "It's his mother that's..." Phillip cuts her off.

Sami continues, "His mom is a..." Again, Phillip motions for her to cool it. Sami looks at Cameron and mouths, "Nutjob." She assures Cameron that Lucas is the sanest person she knows.

"So," says Cameron, "You must have a small circle of friends. And I guess you don't know Lucas that well, do you?"

Sami says she knows Lucas better than he knows himself, "And yet, you want me to say I drove him insane. I wonder who is really doing the driving here."

"You, Sami," Cameron runs through the litany of things Sami has done to push Lucas over the edge, including divorcing him to marry her rapist. Sami says she feels like she is the one on trial. Cameron pushes. Phillip asks Cameron to leave and says he will handle it. Cameron goes.

Phillip tells Sami she doesn't have a choice. He plays his trump card, "Do you want the twins growing up with Daddy locked up in prison?"

"That depends on which daddy they lock up," says Sami. She says Will is barely speaking to her and this won't help.

"If you don't do this, Lucas is toast," says Phillip.

"And I have to be the scapegoat," says Sami. Phillip knows it's not fair. Sami says it's also not fair Lucas didn't ask her himself, "To hell with you and to hell with Lucas."

Satan looks over his little book, "Yyeeessss, I actually have reservations for all three of you."

Stefano says the couchnapping was a minor warning. EJ says he hasn't told anyone what Stefano and his cracked friend Rolf are up to. Stefano says if he interferes he will destroy everything EJ holds dear.

EJ asks, "Everything or everyone?"

"Both," says Stefano. EJ says he wants everything back, including his trust fund. Stefano toasts, "And if I refuse?"

"I walk out that door," threatens EJ, "I go and see the Brady brothers and let them know who is living in your basement."

Marlena and Roman barge into the police station. Marlena asks Crystal about Brady and John and also asks why she ran, "Tell me... Is John alive? Answer me!"

Who was looking after Claire when Shawn went out on his date? She should have been with Belle. They need to work out a custody arrangement and STAT!

I know what C.B. stands for. Cecille B. DiMera! Mr. DiMera, I'm ready for my close-up!

Well, well, well. Again we see our little Miss Hope-Nosey pants involved in another police operation??? She's not on their payroll for Pete's sake!
The SPD should be sued by every resident of Salem - because each of their PRIVACY is in jeopardy with Hope so deeply imbedded with the department... LOL!

So now Stefano is threatening his son bodily harm? What's up with that? He has basically alienated himself from everyone - even Rolf, he had in a choke hold yesterday! I think Stefano needs a hug...wouldn't you agree? Just joking!

And yet again, Marlena never ceases to amaze us with her GREAT perception about feeling John's prescence! I think SHE'S the one with ESP!!! Not Crystal.

And Roman - doesn't it seem like he is HOVERING around Marlena, ready to swoop in on a moments notice? Give this man a life! They could have hooked him with Billie, and THEY could be our 'dynamic crime fighting duo'... but instead their gonna let her go? She's a good actress...Huh? Go figure?
And finally, Sami get off your high horse and help Lucas... Weren't you the one BEGGING him NOT to give up on her when she trapsed off to marry her rapist??? (how stupid does that sound?)
Sami MUST suffer from early Alzheimer - Lucas forgave her for EVERYTHING rotten she's done in her lifetime? YIKES... I hate to say it but Lucas was definately the BETTER MAN... (that actually HURT to say!) LOL!

Great job Prevuze, as usual!

Phillip wants Lucas to use temporary insanity has his defense. That sounds reasonable to me. Aren’t we all just a little insane for watching DOOL?

John demands the truth, "I need to go out."

"You'd better let him," says Rolf, "He's not housetrained yet."


Very funny Prevuze! This whole John thing is so over the top. I finally got to watch the big reveal last night. When EJ entered the laboratory, I started giggling but when he pulled back the sheet, I totally lost it. I was laughing so hard there were tears coming down my cheeks. My cat, who had parked himself in my lap, most assuredly thought I was nuts. Somehow, I don’t think my reaction was quite what the writers were intending. Now, Marlena wants Nick to pick through the ashes in John’s urn. What’s he going to find…sprinkles from donuts?

"You need your family," says Kate.

"I'm a Horton," he grumbles.

"You're half Roberts," says Kate, "And half witted. And half a**ed"


That one really made me chuckle. Great Prevuze!

Why is Nick doing DNA tests again? Doesn't he work at the college not the hospital.

So EJ is going to keep Stephano's secret in return for his trust fund??? Good to know he can be bought that easily.
This has probably been brought up, but what if the owner of the building is Crystal Banks Dimera?? I really just want it to be anyone but Colleen Brady. I'm really hoping the writers take this opportunity to not be so predictable.

Anon, Hope is a police officer. Granted she doesn't spend much time at the office, but I believe she is still on the payroll.

Yes, Nick is a professor, but maybe he needs a little extra cash. Chels is high maintenance.

Have they said Crystal's last name is Banks? Isn't EJ's mother Susan Banks? Crystal and Susan don't resemble each other.

It just seems like the writers are writing whatever with no regard for the history of the show.

Great, great Prevuze today!! I started noting all of the pictures and Prevuisms that had me laughing and finally had to give up. I was noting down the entire frickin' show. HAHAHA

I will note: He says he rang the Belle and since she didn't answer he used his key and let himself in. Hmmmmm, that typo paints a very disturbing picture. HAHAHAHAHA

And in the "from out of left field" category: Marlena says John's body was exhumed at her request and cremated. HUH??

Wonderful way to start the day, Prevuze. Hugs & Kisses

Hey, I'm late today, but I have an excuse, I was doing a new blog (shameless self promotion here):
These Are The Daze Of Our Lives

Anyway,
Why is is to hard for Sami to see she's driven Lucas nuts. Geez, I am surprised he hasn't gone postal on half of Salem with the crap she's put him through.

Exactly how is Nick supposed to test for DNA? Ashes have no DNA.
And for that matter, why doesn't she just call whoever did the cremation? You'd think they would notice if there was no body there, or if there was, that it wasn't John.
And besides there won't be anything in that urn except brick ashes.

So nice to have a day without the Scooby Doo gang. Wonder if that zombie is still after Velma (Chelsea)?

And Moposh, I don't think Hope is a cop anymore. Not legally anyway. For her to be on a stakeout and collect evidence would be not only grounds for a mistrial but would get Bo written up big time.
But again, you can't inject reality into DOOL.
Like yesterday when Marlena barges into the police station and proceeds to read the COMMISSIONER the riot act! Then to top it off she all but confesses to conspiracy to commit murder, by telling them either they do something to stop Stefano or she will.

7:31 AM  
Anonymous moposh said...

Deb, what about when Bope went to Ohio to check on who bought the gun? Didn't Hope represent herself as a cop?

Yes, Marlena needs to watch more crime shows. Ashes=no DNA that's why when a spouse murders their spouse, they'll sometimes have the body cremated so it can't be autopsied at a later date.

I actually thought it was kinda funny with Marlena barging in to the police station with Belle and Sami as backup. The Blonde Avenging Angels!

I don't think Sami drove Lucas crazy. It was Kate and all her machinations. She's been manipulating him and his life since before he was born. After all, he was conceived during adultery.

NEWS FLASH!! SPOILERS FOR JAN 21-22!

Monday, January 21st
Kayla rushes to tell Steve she is ovulating; Sami and EJ continue to bond, but argue about how to protect Johnny from Stefano; John's attempts at escaping are hampered by flashes of Stefano erasing his memories; Marlena hopes she can trust the new John.

Tuesday, January 22nd
While Stefano is out of the cell Lucas uses his phone to call Sami, who has gone into hiding; Philip comforts Belle, who is feeling too ill to help find Claire; Marlena refuses to give up on John, and is encouraged when he dreams about her.

Ladies and gentlemen I think we did it again! Wanna bet Belle is PG and we have YET ANOTHER Who's the Daddy SL? Okay, if this does not prove TPTB are not only reading our site but stealing ideas from it, nothing does!!
I say in the comming weeks we invent some totally off the wall story lines. I will turn them into episodes on my blog, then we will sit back and wait to see how long it takes before they show up on the show. Who's with me?

Well so much for my trying to read Prevuze on the sly in the office. By the second page my third outburst of laughter pretty much revealed I wasn't working.

What got me caught right off the bat was Sami getting the urge to go to the roof ala Carrie, half witted and half a**ed and the audience's reaction to Hope's "de-briefing". HAHAHAHA

Isn't there one single cop in that shop that can stop that Marlena from barging in there making demands every hour on the hour?!?? Jeez!!

Thanks, Prevuze, for the laughs. But if I get a pink slip it's on your head.

It seems that every child born in Salem needs to go to the Maury show to verify "Who's the Daddy".

One question---is there a pharamcy in Salem????

TPTB seem to have a serious need for a "Who's the Daddy?" storyline each year. Just in case TPTB are reading this...ENOUGH WITH IT ALREADY!!

OH MY!!! You don't think Belle is really pregnant do you??? (said with feigned surprise)
Puhhhhhleeeeze!!!!
Something I was noticing while watching today's drivel....the dude who plays Stephano is a pretty good actor. His facial expressions and body language are really on target with his dialogue. I loved when he rolled his eyes at Marlena's gun today. Anyway, in a soap so full of horrible acting, a decent actor really stands out. Ok, that's it.

All she has to do is tell Hope and everyone will know.

If Belle is pregnant, I think it would have made better story for Shawn to still be ignorant about the affair. Then he'd be all happy blabbing about Belle being pregnant and Hope would raise her eyebrow and Bo would drop his jaw.

Nothing to say that hasn't already been said.

So Stefano bailed him out of the Mystic mess off screen. Wouldn't that have been kind of neat to see on screen?

First, I have to say, "OH COME ON! THIS IS DOOL, NOT REAL LIFE!" The can test the DNA of whatever they want and it will work, unless it's Sami's twins.

Second, whether Hope is on the payroll or not, she can still be a commissioned officer. A commission can be carried by a law enforcement agency even it that person does not work as a cop. I have several friends who used to be in law enforcement and their commissions are still active, but they went into other areas of law enforcement (judge, city code enforcement, etc.) But they could go back active at any point (IF they could pass the physical - ha ha).

Great Prevuze. I did a spit take on Sami's impersonation of Carrie. Wish I could watch it!
