Cunning, Conniving And Crafty

Cheerful EJ comes to Sami's door and rings the doorbell. Sami, looking like something the cat wouldn't even think of dragging in, opens the door. EJ takes one look, "You look like you're dressed in... I don't know... some post natal bohemian thing."

"No," says Sami, "It's the... my twins are vampires and don't ever sleep look."

EJ comes inside with a folder. Sami asks what it is. EJ says, "Annulment papers."

Sami says, "That was fast."

"I hope my instant law degree from Matchbook U. would be good for something," says EJ.

"That is better than being good for nothing," says Sami, "which, at the moment, describes Lucas."

EJ says, "All you need to do is sign."

Chelsea bawls and feeds a bag of peanuts to the rats in Salem park. She tells them the old guy who used to do this isn't around any more. Chelsea drips snot like a leaky faucet. She wipes it on her hand and then slops it onto the jeans of a stranger standing next to her. Of course, the guy finds snotface irresistible.

Patch and Kayla are at the docks. Kayla feels like she has been a prisoner lately.

"A prisoner of love," says Patch. He wants to go back to the apartment. Kayla thinks he's acting strange. "Who says I'm acting," he asks.

Meanwhile, wacko Ava goes through her picture collection. She stops as she looks at a picture of Hope, "I'm in love with Steve... Now I just have to figure out what your name is." She goes to the door and screams, "Daddy, open up! Let me out of here now. I know you will give in like you always do." Silence. "Well," she says, "I guess it's not Daddy. Eddy? George? Get me out of here. Of all the goons in the world I gotta get the stupid ones. Hello... are you guys even out there?"

She gets no answer from the goon outside, so she goes back to the pictures, "I've just gotta learn everything about you."

Bo reads a boating magazine Shawn has brought him as a present. Bo would rather have his boat back – the one Shawn sunk. Hope dotes. Bo tells her to cut it out. She thinks he should be eating more. Bo holds up a gelled container of green stuff, "Kill me now." Hope promises a delicious steak dinner when he gets out. Bo wishes they were on the Fancy Face.

Shawn reminds him it's at the bottom of the Salem Sea.

The start to worry about Bo's condition. Hope rants, "Stop it, both of you, OK? Because you're talking like it's over and it's not. We have a lot of happy times ahead of us."

Victor interrupts, "Yes you do. I can guarantee it."

Victor says he has found an expert who specializes in Bo's condition. Hope reminds him they don't know what Bo's condition is. Victor tells them Dr. Miracle is a special diagnostician, internist and surgeon all rolled into one – and, as luck would have it, he's right there in town.

Mystery man asks, "Did you just wipe your nose on my leg?" Chelsea says she feels awful. She yammers about what a hard day she has had. He wants to help, "I heard what you said to the rats. I'd do anything for a beautiful woman in distress. And I'd do anything for you, too."

Sami reads the annulment papers and vows not to fall for any more DiMera tricks. She wonders what EJ will do when they are divorced. EJ thinks he will have to get a job.

Patch decides he doesn't want Kayla outside. She wants to know why. He's worried about her. She insists she's OK, "I'm fine and the baby is fine. The husband, however is stone-cold crazy."

As they talk, a fisherman approaches. Patch gives him the evil eye. Kayla wants to know what that's about. Patch says nothing and insists he's fine. He points out the spot where they got married. We have a major flashback to their wedding. Moving pictures, of course hadn't been invented way back then, so we have a series of grainy black and white stills. After it's all over, the couple poses with the best man and maid of honor, Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln.

Sami mocks EJ's desire for a job. She imitates his british accent, "Would you like fries with that?" EJ thinks it isn't funny. He reminds her he has a family to support. Now Sami knows they have to have the marriage annulled. Her time with Lucas has proven she can't be with any man who can hold a job.

Chelsea slobbers into the mystery man's handkerchief and hands it back to him. For obvious reasons, he tells her to keep it. He gets a call and runs off, "Take care of yourself."

"I will," says Chelsea, "Thanks to you." After he's gone, she repeats it, "I will... thanks to you... what the hell was that?"

Victor extols the virtues of Dr. Miracle, "He will be happy to take over the case."

Dr. Lexie Carver, Chief of Staph, walks in on cue, "Excuse me, who's taking over my case?"

Before Victor can tell Lexie to get lost, Chelsea interrupts. Victor says it's nothing to be concerned about. The new doctor is just someone who actually knows what he's talking about.

As Victor continues to attempt to settle Lexie down, who should arrive but Dr. Miracle himself. Do I really have to tell you who he is?

"The happiest days of my life have been with you," says Kayla, "Both of them." She tells him she didn't think she could go on when he died. Only on this show would a sentence like that make any sense.

Patch remembers a hot moment with Ava. They're all flopped over their bed pounding down booze. Ava asks, "Did you see the look on Danelli's face? He knows he's dead when we show those pictures around town." Patch wants to hear about the profits they can make. She thinks the less he knows the better, "If you want Daddy's trust, you should make an honest woman out of me."

"Is that even possible?"

"Join the family for real," says Ava as she moves in on his bod.

Kayla snaps him out of it. He hugs her and says they shouldn't dwell on the past, especially since he doesn't have one.

Back in her room, Ava screams and asks for the names of the women on the plane from Ireland. A note comes under the door. She opens it and reads through the names, "Kayla Johnson." She picks up the picture of Hope.

Sami fumbles around as EJ asks her to sign the annulment papers. Amidst all the fumbling, EJ's certified letter falls to the floor. Sami makes him open it. EJ reads. His face falls. "What," asks Sami.

"I knew it was bad news when the deliveryman wasn't Ed McMahon," says EJ, "My visa has expired."

"Then use your Master Card," says Sami.

"I don't get it," says EJ, "I'm married and have a family here."

Patch gets philosophical, "The past is in the past." Three guesses where the future is. Kayla wonders if she upset him. He claims not. She drags him to the park.

Ole buddies Vic and they mystery man from the park greet each other. Victor introduces him as Dr. Daniel Jonas, miracle worker and snot catcher. It turns out, Vic is Daniel's godfather. Bo is glad he's there, I hope you can do me some good."

"I'll do my damndest to see that you are here for a long time," says Dr. Daniel, miracle worker.

"That's too bad," says Bo, "I was hoping to get out of the hospital soon."

Daniel asks Lexie to fill him in on Bo's symptoms. Lexie does her best. Daniel says he'll be in Salem until Bo is out Bo the hospital, "I'll leave right after the funeral." He asks to see Bo alone. The crowd moves out. Insecure Lexie hangs back, but Superdoctor tells her they will talk later.

Outside, Lexie snorts at Victor. She thinks Dr. Jonas seems unconventional. If he's good, Lexie will welcome him. She leaves and Hope thanks Victor. Victor assures Hope the new doc is a genius.

Patch and Kayla stop at the same park bench Chelsea was using. Patch wipes the snot off and they sit down. Nervous Patch looks around the park. They find Chelsea's bag of nuts. Patch feeds the rats,.

"Oh, look," says one of the rats, "The old guy is back."

Patch holds a nut out to Kayla, "Wanna nut?"

"I've got one," says Kayla.

Patch appeals to the little one, "Your mama called your Papa a nut, little dude or dudette." They decide they make each other happy. Patch vows to hold onto this beautiful moment forever. That lasts for exactly three-tenths of a second. As they smooch, Patch flashes back to the time Ava beat him up, said she wanted him back, and told him he had to suffer. Patch zones as Kayla hugs.

Sami can't believe EJ is getting kicked out of the country. She says they will figure this out, "This sucks."

EJ decides it's more than just suckage. Suddenly Sami gets an idea. She thinks having a son in the US as well as a wife qualifies him to stay. EJ thinks that's a start. Sami encourages him, "You can use those facts and put your devious DiMera skills to use and work out a way to stay."

Chelsea drinks coffee and bawls outside Bo's room. Daniel comes up and startles her. The klutz jumps. Coffee flies. Daniel jumps back, "What do you have against my pants? He introduces himself, Chelsea returns the introduction, "Can you make my dad well?"

EJ says he will let Sami know when things are all worked out, "I promise I'll be cunning, conniving and crafty. She hands him the unsigned annulment papers to keep. He asks why she is choosing to help him. Sami tells him not to read too much into it. He leaves. Sami closes the door and smiles.

Patch feeds the rats the last peanut. Kayla wonders what she will do with him. Patch gets ideas... BUT rustling interrupts. Kayla thinks it was a squirrel. She wants to know why he's acting so weird. "Maybe I'm just squirrely," says Patch. They decide to go home. Patch watches over his shoulder as they leave.

Ava obsesses and remembers Patch hugging Hope. She looks at Hope's picture, "So, you're Patch's wife. I gotcha!"

Daniel promises Chelsea he will do his best with Bo.

Bo and Hope look through the magazine. Hope is glad Daniel is on the case. Bo thinks between Lexie and Daniel, things are looking up.

"Let's keep looking," says Hope.

“No, I would rather use my Discover Card. That way I’ll get a cash back bonus.”

Chelsea bawls and feeds a bag of peanuts to the rats in Salem park.

In the words of Carrie Bradshaw, “a squirrel is a just a rat with a cuter outfit”.

Victor introduces him as Dr. Daniel Jonas, miracle worker and snot catcher.

Thanks a lot, Prevuze!!! Now I’ve got snot all over my keyboard after that one.

Outside, Lexie snorts at Victor. She thinks Dr. Jonas seems unconventional. If he's good, Lexie will welcome him.

If he’s good, that would certainly be unconventional for Salem’s hospital.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Incredibly funny Prevuze today!!!!! The photos and captions were also great. Kudos to Alias99!! Your cable conundrum must be very inspirational. Sounds like a decent installment of Daze but this was an outstanding installment of Prevuze!!!

…and I will close with a prayer. Dear Lord, we humble Prevuze apostles beg and beseech you to bring only gentle breezes to the Prevuze compound. Since only God can make a tree, please don’t knock it down. God help us. We don’t know how we will get through the day without Prevuze. Amen.

Ejami isn't coming, they're chance is already long gone... (notice how the ratings have been climbing while they've been backburnered?)

Obviously the cunning, conniving and crafty is EJ's way of referring to his fake annulment papers and fake exportation documents. Too bad the jokes on him when Lucas gets back next month and we find out that the Lumi divorce was also fake hahaha.

On top of all of the above kudos to today's Prevuze magic let me add - loved Chloe's ability to whine in multiple languages. HAHA

Now that EJ is getting divorced he will "have to get a job". Say what? If he stayed married to job-less Sami he wouldn't have have to get a job?

And, I don't know about Kayla, but if the audience has to put up with Patch hovering over his wife every second for the next 8 months WE'LL go stark raving mad.

TLT for this episode (and every episode with Ava going through the pictures): She has enough intel to find this sorry group in Ireland and know whose plane they will be taking back, but she hasn't done any basic research like who Steve's family members are and what they look like??

Enough ranting - here's a rave to today's Prevuze!! Love ya.

I'm getting a little tired of Max, Stephanie, and now EJ "conveniently" forgetting that they are RACE CAR DRIVERS when they talk about needing to get jobs. Maybe they wouldn't have their own team, but they could certainly get hired onto someone else's -- wouldn't you think?

ratings have nothing to do with ejami. it has to do with a little better show.
but alas all good things has to end . the old writers are coming back.

BTW when deb comes back is she going to be rapid age or is she coming back as the new pawn of Stefano. i got it the days writers kidnapped her because she does the days storyline blog. then they put her memories on a dvd so they would have ideas for new scripts



great prevuze today

Every race car driver will tell you all racers pay for their ride. If Dale Jr. loses his ability to attract sponsors and their money today, he'll be sitting in the grandstands tomorrow.

I'M BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!

It's so nice to see nothing at all has changed since I've been gone.

Chelsea seems to wallow in self pitty, Patch and Kayla are still just too lovey dovey, gross for words, Chloe is still whining, Lexi still doesn't have a clue what's wrong with Bo, and there's a psycho killer stalking Hope.

Joy.

A new doctor huh? See now if TPTB would have just listened to me the new doc SHOULD have been of course
Dr. Drake Ramoray!!!!

Now THAT would have been good.

To Anonymous, I was not kidnapped by Stefano, but I was doing some undercover work in his organization. And you would not believe what I found out!!!

You'll have to read my newest blog to do that, of course.

Thank you for all your kind emails and get well wishes guys.
I feel truly blessed and like you all are my family!!
Now stop it before I get all sappy here!!!

Seriously, it is great to be back!!
Now go read my new blog already!

I must say all of the brat-snot references sort of lessened my breakfast experience but to spare my keyboard I shouldn't be eating while reading Prevuze anyway. Especially when I get to parts like Honest Abe and Mary Todd. HAHAHAHA

I hope the new doctor is at least a good looking hunk. Him being a better doctor than Lexi is a given.

Thanks, Prevuze, for another excellent edition (and I'm glad the tree is obviously still standing).

Does anyone remember when Steve first came back and there was some lady who claimed she was his wife? Now this Ava chick is showing up and saying that they were going to get married as well. Steve had an affair with Billie but when he broke up with Ava, he "knew there was something more for him out there"? Is this a recycled script that they forgot to finish when Steve first came to Salem? Sorry - just ranting about how stupid some of these storylines are!!!!

"...My visa has expired."

"I don't get it," says EJ, "I'm married and have a family here. Plus, I was born here."


This is a stupid story. EJ was born in Salem so he's a U.S. citizen and doesn't need a Visa, unless somewhere along the line he denounced his U.S. citizenry.

"PAPER or PLASTIC?"
LOVED that... Man, Patsy Pease is a fright! She should stay away from open flame or her face will melt... Ewww! I'd rather see her with the tell tale signed of aging... wrinkles would look better on her! Ewww... just can't get over it! Plastic surgery... now I know why they call it that.

EJAMI! Hmmm... Maybe Sami is brewing the immigration check, maybe not. She was surprised at how willing Ej was in getting the annulment papers written up. Now that she had to sign, I bet she was a little happy that she had a reason NOT too... I'm relaly rooting for their romance to spark... Lucas was a whinny brat... Just can't see them together. They've had their chance over and over.

So has Ciera died or something? I hate it when Soaps conveniently hide children so ma & pa can be on screen w/out the responsibility... You'd think Hope would bring her to the hospital to cheer Bo up!

Plastic or Paper, hilarious. I wish all the women would allow themselves to age gracefully, one reason I really admire Leann Hunley. She's a woman who's enjoyed her life and it shows on her face.

Crediting the ratings increase to Ej/Sami being backburnered makes as much sense as crediting Lucas being off screen. Neither one of those made the difference. The over all scheme of things and Snarky Jawn made the difference.

I'm assuming (though it should be the show telling me) that Ej renounced his US citizenship when he became of age.

Sami smiles. Could we be getting rid of Carrie-lite and seeing the return of real Sami?

-- Personally it is because they have not backburnered all the vets like they did - though if you really want to go there, maybe the ratings are higher because we are no longer subjected to whiny Lucas and LUMI slurpping. That in itself is good enough to celebrate!

Loved the paper or plastic comment!

Just a comment about Sami's jab about EJ getting a job .... "You want fries with that?"

Uhhhh, I don't know about you ladies but I'd be willing to EAT fries off that man. He could make a killing and retire early and filthy rich.

On a less delicious note... So, if EJ and Tony's trusts have been canceled, how the heck are they living up the lifestyle? I also thought EJ signed over all his belongings to Stefano to avoid the FCC from repossessing it (Mythic Communications scandal)

Convenient details unexplained... a break from the scab to old writers perhaps?

I don't see an Ejami happening really. I believe EJ will turn evil and forsake whatever he has to, to combat John.

Also, I think a "mysterious individual" will awaken Stefano and Lexie, EJ, and Tony will be the prime suspects.

The 'paper or plastic' picture was hilarious.

Crap, I'm exhausted. Welcome back, Deb.

LOL thanks prevuze that was a hoot as always.

LOVE the EJ and Sami stuff, their exchanges are just WOW.
But really TPTB have obviously forgotten that EJ was born in salem. whatever. If it brings Ejami closer and closerandcloser I'll pretend he's not american born.
and Jenifer yes indeed I'd eat fries off him too....mmmmmmmmmmm
