Shock And Awe, Beauty And Poetry

Hope is with Bo. She has the same facial expression and says and does the same things she's been doing for a week. Somehow, however, her jewelry changes. Doctors Frick and Frack walk into the room. "Is everything ready," asks Hope.

"You've signed the consent form," says Lexie, "But there's a problem with your insurance. The company won't pay for an experimental procedure. I need $30,000 for a down payment. You can pay the rest in easy installments."

"No problem," says Hope, "$30,000 is a piece of cake on a cop's salary, but I just don't have it on me. I'll give you Ciara instead. We don't much use her much anyway."

Outside, the crowd waits. Shawn feels like he isn't doing enough. Belle says he gave Bo a reason to fight, by telling him about their plans. Translation: Knowing Shawn is leaving town will give Bo a reason to live. Phillip overhears, "What plans?"

Marlena tells John they are blessed with a loving family. "I guess you could consider that a blessing," says John, "I'll keep my distance. One of them could get struck by lightning. I'd hate to get caught in the crossfire."

Caroline chimes in, "If anybody can beat the odds it's Bo and Chelsea."

Victor says, "If anyone is odd, it's Bo and Chelsea."

Chelsea talks to Billie on the phone. She wishes Billie were there, having her pancreas ripped out instead. She hangs up and tells Kate she's glad she is there to support her. Kate worries, but Chelsea says she owes it to her dad to go through with this.

Dr. Jonas walks in and tells Chelsea this is no day at the beach, "Are you sure you want to do this?"

Belle dodges Phillip's question. Phillip goes for food. Belle says she didn't think this was the right time to tell him. Shawn says they might have to put their plans on hold. Marlena offers support. John walks up. He thinks things are just too tense in a hospital. He looks at Belle, "And you want to get into nursing?"

Belle gives her Miss America Candidate answer, "I want to help people."

"Aren't you just a ball of sunshine," asks John.

Roman and Max take a stab at an inane conversation. Patch reminds Stephanie he gave up a kidney and things turned out OK, so Chelsea will be fine after she gives up one of her pancreases. Stephanie gives him a look. "What," asks Patch, "I could have sworn there were two pancreases."

Inside the room of doom, Hope hugs Bo, "Your whole family needs you. So you fight. I love you Brady."

Chelsea says they can't talk her out of it. Dr. Jonas doesn't want to since the brat is Bo's only hope. Chelsea understands the risks. She might not be able to go drinking for a couple of days. She's sure about this. She signs the consent forms and hands the clipboard to Daniel, "Just save my dad, OK?"

"I'll do my best," says Daniel, "I get paid more if he lives."

Kate tells Chelsea she's proud, "Your courage is amazing."

Chelsea says, "Really? I am scared as hell right now."

Satan sticks his head into the room, "You have no idea how scared hell is right now. If Dr. Daniel fails, you'll be down there with us."

Dr. Daniel gives the pep talk to the troops, "I want shock and awe, beauty and poetry."

"That's odd," says Lexie, "I thought you wanted a pancreas."

Victor and Caroline wish Bo Godspeed as they wheel him off. Then Roman stops them. In turn, each family member stops the gurney and says goodbye. Not that we're in a rush or anything.

As the medical team presses on with Bo's gurney, Hope brings it to a grinding halt, "Your whole family needs you. So you fight. I love you Brady."

John stands in the background, "Hang tough, Bo."

Nick comes in to see Chelsea, with a teddy bear. He says his mom gave it to him when he had his appendix removed. Last week. She assures him she wants to go through with this. He says he doesn't want to lose her. Apparently, he's having lingering affects from the drugs he got after that appendix operation. They come in to take her to the OR. Love and hugs all around. Stephanie and Max come in. More love; more hugs. Barf bags are located in the seat pocket in front of you.

Hope stops Chelsea on the way in to surgery, "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him."

After Hope leaves, they wheel Bo in. Chelsea stops them and tells Bo it's just too bad if he doesn't want her to go through with this. She's disobeying him again, "Take good care of my pancreas. I only have so much of it to give away."

In the operating room, Anesthesiologist Kevin injects Chelsea. In the other room, the docs prep Bo.

Dr. Taylor operates on Chelsea. Outside the crowd waits. Hope stares into space, "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him."

Patch, Stephanie, Nick and Max play cards and banter.

Chelsea is bleeding a little more than Dr. Taylor would like. Consuming massive quantities of alcohol tends to thin the blood.

Belle brings food. Shawn don' wan' no stinkin' food. They talk about how proud Bo will be when Shawn graduates from the police academy, and then throws it away by leaving to sail around the world.

Kate stops John and says hi. John gives her a blank stare, "And you are..."

"I'm Kate," she says, "Your ex fiancée."

John gives his half chuckle, "Are we on good terms?"

"I'd say we are friends," says Kate, "So I have a warning. Phillip says you're playing hardball at the dock. The old John wouldn't do that."

"Things change."

"Going up against a Kiriakis could be dangerous," says Kate. John thinks he's a dangerous opponent, too. "Don't say I didn't warn you," says Kate as she goes off.

Roman and Hope meet in the hallway. Hope says, "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him." She and Roman go to the chapel to light a candle.

John tells Marlena he doesn't know why people are just moping around there. They need to go home and eat protein and get sleep. John decides to leave. Marlena says she will go with him.

In Chelsea's operating room one of the doctors says, "Call OR-2 and tell them the pancreas is approved."

Over in OR-2, Daniel waits and paces, on water, of course. He gets the news, walks over to Bo's operating table and digs in.

John and Marlena walk by the docks. They talk about Rolf who John thinks is lost without his Bunsen burner. John says Rolf told him he would never recover his past. John talks about all the people he doesn't care about: his mother, Shawn, Bo... Marlena wonders why he showed up at the hospital.

Shawn goes for soda. Phillip tells Belle he's happy to see them making nice again. Belle wonders if it hurts Phillip to see her and Shawn together. "It hurts," says Phillip, "But you're not that special."

Belle looks into his eyes, "You are."

Kate throws her cards down, "I have a royal flush!"

"I guess you're at the age where that kind of thing starts happening," says Patch. He thinks Kate always wins.

Kate reminds him, "Billie and I have had to claw and scratch our way through life. Some johns can get pretty kinky."

Max thinks Chelsea is just like them, "She's a rabid pit bull." Everyone gives Max a strange look. "Uh, you know what I mean."

"Well," says Patch, "That rabid pit bull will kick butt in the OR."

Roman tells Hope, "Sami is sorry she couldn't be here, but she has to take care of the twins. Personally I don't see why she didn't just throw them into the street like Claire and Ciara." He really feels like it should be OMB with Caroline instead of Victor.

Hope drones, "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him."

"Bo is lucky to be married to you," says Roman, "Sort of like he's lucky to have a rotten pancreas."

They box up the pancreas section and carry it across to Bo's OR. "OK people, it's miracle time," says Dr. Jonas.

John doesn't know why he was compelled to go to the hospital. Marlena thinks he was subconsciously compelled to visit his friend Bo. She says the pier has a special meaning to them.

"Why," asks John, "Did we get mugged here?"

Marlena tells him about reuniting there, and their wonderful life together. It was better than with most of her other husbands.

"This looks like a good place to buy drugs, too," says John. He gets a call and gives Marlena a look that says "scram." The call is from Hollingsworth wanting a meeting. John will get back with him. He hangs up and Marlena asks who that was. John stares.

Patch tries to comfort Hope. "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him.," says Hope. Patch tells her to think positive. Hugs. Hope wonders how they will ever repay Patch for all he's done.

"10's and 20's are good," says Patch.

A nurse comes out and announces, "They are closing Chelsea and sewing her up."

"I hope she means her mouth," says Nick. Cheers and hugs.

Patch prays with Hope. "Heavenly father," says Hope, "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him." As they pray we watch Bo go under the knife.

Hearing Hope's prayer and recognizing it is a little redundant, Patch takes over, "Come on Big Dude, make it happen." Finally, someone gives God the respect he deserves.

John says that was Stefano's lawyer. There are more papers to sign. Marlena thinks they should get back to the hospital. She feels like they are beginning to communicate. She walks off. John twirls his phone and follows.

Nick feels he should be spending more time with Chelsea. But the grant has been keeping him away from her, "Thank God for small favors."

Lexie tells the unconscious Chelsea she's a hero. She goes over to check on Bo.

Outside, Hope stares into space and says, "Bo's whole family needs him. I want him to fight. I love him."

Bo's operation becomes challenging. Dr. Jonas says he loves a good challenge. Lexie asks if he needs assistance.

"No," says Daniel, "I think he might make it, and I don't want to ruin his chances. But stick around. This dance is far from over." Pan in to Bo and fade to white light.

Come on, Phillip, you need to read the spoilers. Shawn, Belle, and Claire are going on a cruise. When they will return, you won’t recognize Shawn and Belle. Get with it Phillip. By reading Prevuze and the spoilers, you can avoid actually watching Daze just like the rest of us.

Dr. Jonas walks in and tells Chelsea this is no day at the beach, "Are you sure you want to do this?"

The two viewers still watching this crap yell, “We want Chelsea to do it. If she goes to the beach, she’ll be wearing her bikini. EWWWW!!!”

Belle gives her Miss America Candidate answer, "I want to help people."

"Aren't you just a ball of sunshine," asks John.


It’s that sort of statement that makes me think that John is just as tired of this pap as we are.

Dr. Daniel gives the pep talk to the troops, "I want shock and awe, beauty and poetry."

"That's odd," says Lexie, "I thought you wanted a pancreas."


Excellent, Prevuze!!!!!

Kate reminds him, "Billie and I have had to claw and scratch our way through life. Some johns can get pretty kinky."

Elliot Spitzer certainly does get around.

Bulldog, that photo and caption is hysterical. Of course, Prevuze offers another highly entertaining recap of another silly installment of DOOL!!!!!

If it weren't for Jawn and his hilariously inappropriate (but so dead-on) comments, this show wouldn't even be watchable any more. To whit:

John, "I'll keep my distance. One of them could get struck by lightning. I'd hate to get caught in the crossfire."

Loved the pictures. Loved the prevuisms:

Belle says he gave Bo a reason to fight, by telling him about their plans. Translation: Knowing Shawn is leaving town will give Bo a reason to live. Won't we all!

The Prevuism that followed this statement was perfect. However I have a question: They talk about how proud Bo will be when Shawn graduates from the police academy... Other than that first day, when has Jr even BEEN to the police academy? Is he absorbing it telepathically? Taking a correspondence course??

Yesterday Prevuze chided me for abusing my zapper. Sorry, but it's either the zapper or my sanity (which is pretty tenuous as it is). This is another episode that will take about 10 minutes to get through. LOLOLOL

Prevuze, you continue to suffer for us all. Thank you.

I have to say I'm rather enjoying John and his inappropriate comments! Love all the pics, especially Dr. Jonas parting the sea. Thanks, Prevuze!

Shawn will graduate from the academy with honors...just as Belle will graduate from nursing school.

Both without ever setting foot in a classroom or cracking a book cover!

"Your whole family needs you. So you fight. I love you Brady."

By about the sixth time I got to this Prevuzism (and it's multiple forms) I had to physically get up from my PC and walk around for a minute -- I couldn't catch my breath for trying to stifle laughter!

Kind of reminded me of Leslie Nielsen coming continuously into the cockpit in "Airplane" to tell Striker and Elaine, "I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you. "

That can't be it. Using telepathy would imply that Shawn has a mind.

Maybe Claire will come back and be old enough to date Max, he has a thing for his relatives.

Where to start with this one?????

Belle states "I just want to help people."
Are you serious? When has she HELPED people? How in the world is she going to complete her nurses training?

And Shawn - graduating the police academy...
The writers must think we are STUPID... What are they doing?

And are they taking scripts right from the show 'House'? This new Dr. is soooo obnoxious... Usually, a charming personality will balance out a person's 'obnoxious-ness', (is that a word? LOL). This guy has NO PERSONALITY! I hope after this Bo sickness (maybe by Christmas) - they tone this guys ego down!

And maybe I read Prevuze wrong - Did Phil say to Belle, "You're not that special?" This is a guy who was basically foaming at the mouth everytime she walked in the room...
And she just had to flirt back with him... didn't she? Or did I read that wrong?

Sheesh - give it a rest, he's finally moved on!!!! Don't stir up the muck again!!!! LOL!!!

Writers, one little tip - while the strike was on - storylines moved along, (a day was only about 2 or 3 episodes long) instead of the 2 week DRAGGING you guys are doing now! The viewers were really responsive to the show!!!! Speed it up - we're all sleeping, fast-forwarding, or not even watching anymore!

Thank you Prevuze for enduring through this garbage for us...(anthem playing in the bcakground) Because of you - we need not watch. We can read your site and actually be entertained! My hat's off to you... Our Hero!!!!!!
(ok, that's enough - we don't want you to start acting like 'Dr. God's Gift to Medicine'.)

I am enjoying the new Jawn as well. Anybody still think he is just faking it? Kind of seemed that way when he showed concern for Bo.

Phillip said, "You're not that special," but was definitely supposed to be kidding. Belle's response was dead serious. The girl is one definite nut case.

I can't believe I used to watch every episode of this show. So very much nicer, quicker and painless from Prevuze than from NBC with their countless, awful commercials. My thanks to you Prevuze. Amber

Sunshine said: Maybe Claire will come back and be old enough to date Max, he has a thing for his relatives.

No no, Ciara would have to be SORAS'd. Max only dates his NIECES!!

So Dr. Dan can ask Lexie if she wants to help, but Kayla, who can perform a kidney transplant in a warehouse with a can opener and an iced tea spoon, gets to just hang out with the rest of the family and look concerned.

And WHY is Kate even there?? For Chelsea? Since when did she care about Chelsea? Maybe she has some kind of big life insurance policy on her and is hoping she can collect and save Myth-ick.

I agree with Applecheeks. I LOVE Jawn!! I hope they NEVER change him back. I especially love it when he zaps Marlena with those snide comments and she gets that confused puppy look on her face.
I keep waiting for her to cock her head to one side! LMAO

And all of you who are wondering how Shawn can be a cop without going to the Academy, you are forgetting that the Salem PD just hands out badges to Bradys like they were prizes in a box of Cracker Jack.

All Hope had to do was say, "hey I wanna be a cop again" and without so much as a refresher course or a stint at the academy to make sure she could pass the physical requirements, ABRACADABRA she's a cop again.

Logic and education has nothing to do with your chosen career path in Salem! When did Chelsea or Stephanie EVER mention they were even the LEAST bit interested in a degree in business or advertising? (Unless of course you don't count them wanting to be Jaeger girls last summer at the beach). But there they are doing internships at advertising agencies.

New blog today, read, enjoy, comment!

Really enjoyed this installment of prevuze. Especially Hope comments. Good thing I wasn't at work.

I am really happy Jawn and Kate have scenes together.

When have Chelsea and Stephanie even attended classes?? Like Shawn and Belle they will get their degrees without ever having to crack a book or take a test.

When was the new John informed of Belle wanting to become a nurse?? Was that a slip on the writers part, is he faking it, or did they mention it to him and I didn't read that part??

Thanks to Prevuze, there is no way I could watch this!

Kayla was actually in the OR with Dr. Dan, but didn't have much of a role today. I guess she was that perfect assistant Trapper John kept looking for in MASH - the one who could work without getting certain protruding body parts in the way. I should have had Elliott Gould jump in and make that remark. Oh, the lost opportunities.

I didn't even care if I was reading this at work - each time Hope went thru her tortured hopes I LOL even louder.

I third the motion they keep Jawn just as he is!

I loved that Sami is caring for the twins but Ciara and Claire are out in the streets somewhere. HAHAHA

Excellent Prevuisms and pictures. Thanks for either giving us something to laugh at while we struggle thru this stuff - or a warning when we can zap! :D

Deb, I want you to know that I almost ruined my computer when I read this. I have to learn not to drink anything when I read Prevuze.

Great Prevuze today! Loved the Dr. Daniel parting the sea pic!

The good news is, Dr. Dan IS cute!

EJ does not have to carry that burden alone anymore.


(Oh, but p-u-l-e-a-s-e, daze writers, do not match up Dr. Dan the Man with pancreas-short Chelsea.)

And, yes, I also enjoyed Deb's can opener/spoon surgery crack. lol!

OMG, I was thinking that when everyone was lined up to speak to Bo on the way to the ER, I thought about the scene in Airplane where everyone was lining up in the aisle to hit the panicing old lady. LOL
