Boxers Or Briefs?

Sami and EJ are together in the pub. Sami calls and leaves a message for Marlena. She rants, "Maybe the whole thing is a lie. Why would Nicole say anything like that?" EJ tries to calm her down and go back to studying for the INS exam. Sami is surprised to know EJ knows her favorite perfume.

"I pay attention," says EJ, "Here's one a wife should know – Boxers or briefs?"

"How should I know that," snorts Sami.

EJ says, "When we were trapped in the steam room I had to take my clothes off."

"I was nine months pregnant and my life was in danger," screams Sami, "I didn't notice."

EJ calls her bluff, "Saaammmiii."

"Boxers. Blue. With a monogram."

Marlena walks in with John. Sami drops the Brady bomb. Victor follows, "What's all the excitement?"

"Brady's been found," says Marlena.

"Tell him something he doesn't know," says Sami.

Phillip tells Abe Chloe is on her way to Zurich, "She didn't even throw a fit when she found out first class was sold out, but she went bonkers when she found out instead of an in-flight movie, they were showing DOOL reruns."

"Well," says Abe, "Victor's secret is out and Chloe is on her way to reunite with her husband... for better or for worse."

Phillip says, "For Chloe, it's probably better. For Brady, it's definitely worse."

Phillip gets a call. Abe excuses himself and talks to Roman about the Vitali case. Roman asks Phillip what he is doing there. Phillip says, "My father framed Chloe for Brady's disappearance. I want to make sure she can't press charges."

The drama continues in Chelsea's room. In a room down the hall, the staff parties like it's 1999, knowing Chelsea is out of the gene pool. Bo wants to take her home. Lexie objects, "If you're that delirious, we might have to readmit you."

Bo rages, "THIS ISN'T FAIR."

Dr. Miracle walks into the room, "$#!+&(*^%@& happens, Bo. Knock it off. This isn't helping you or anyone else."

Bo asks, "$#!+&(*^%@&... Is that surfer talk?"

Sami and Marlena gang up on Victor for stuffing Brady in a rehab clinic. Sami thinks this was all about revenge. Marlena asks Victor about that. Victor says, "Chloe introduced Brady to the lowlifes that got him hooked. She deserved to suffer."

"What about us," asks Marlena, "Do we deserve to suffer?"

Someone from the audience screams, "What about us..."

Marlena decides they will bring Brady home and take care of him there.

John walks over to Victor and says, "You shouldn't have kept this from me. You played God with my son. That's another mistake, Mr. Kiriakis. "By the way... Did Brady... by chance... have any drugs left over I could take off your hands?"

Abe tells Phillip they've been in touch with Brady, and he refuses to testify against his grandfather. The cops have nothing to charge Victor with.

Bo gets macho, "You're close to crossing the line, doc." Daniel tells Bo to cool it. Bo thinks Daniel is trying to cover his own butt. Daniel reminds him Chelsea wanted to do this, "She wasn't going to stand by and let you die."

Bo snorts, "How did this happen."

"We may never really know," says Daniel, "But if you're implying I did something wrong, you're free to get a lawyer."

Bo's meltdown wakes Chelsea. "I trust him," she says, "You should too. Next to you, he's the kindest, most caring person I know."

"You need to get out and meet more people," says Hope.

John and Victor stand face to face they slowly approach each other in silence. Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darlin' wails in the background. Phillip comes in and interrupts the standoff. He takes Victor aside and tells him he wanted to make sure Chloe couldn't press charges. Victor wants to know since when it's against the law to protect his own grandson. Phillip insists Chloe didn't get Brady hooked on drugs. Victor says Brady didn't want anyone to know about his situation and he was just respecting his wishes. Victor says he didn't tell Phillip because this way he was the only one responsible. He reminds him about the number of times he has come through for Phillip, "Bo and Chelsea, My love for family knows no bounds."

"Maybe that's your problem," says Phillip, "Boundaries don't exist for you."

John gets a call, "I'll be there." He hangs up and announces, "My presence at the Salem PD has been requested. It seems your ex and Honest Abe would like to question me about something."

"I'll go with you," says Marlena, "This sounds juicy."

Phillip takes Victor aside and tells him about John's call. They wonder if it's about Hollingsworth and the bribes. Phillip doesn't know, but decides to go to the police station and find out. Victor says he will go, too. "I'd rather handle this alone," says Phillip.

Roman watches as Paul tells Morgan she doesn't need to be there for this. Morgan isn't going anywhere until this mistake gets cleared up. Roman steps in, "Morgan, you can wait outside."

"Oh," she snorts, "So you can take the rubber hose to my daddy and make him confess for something he didn't do?"

Abe steps in, "Actually we haven't used the rubber hose and bright lights for some time. Waterboarding is the new thing." He asks Paul if he wants his attorney present.

"My attorney charges $500 an hour and I haven't done anything criminal," says Paul.

Abe gasps, "$500 AN HOUR? You may not have done anything criminal, but he has." He tells Paul they have enough on him to put him away for a long time, "You may wind up in a cell with Lucas."

That does it. Paul folds like the Boston Red Sox in the 1986 World Series. Abe says they can make a deal, "We agree to drop the pending charges..."

Roman takes over, "IF you finger John black for the graft."

Bo and Hope want to spend some time alone with Chelsea. As they leave, Chelsea asks, "Dr. Jonas... You're coming back, right? I thought we could start making a few wedding plans." Daniel tells her to get some rest.

Outside, Daniel blames himself. Lexie suggests he consult other doctors. Daniel thinks he has lost his objectivity, "She deserves better than me."

"But you're supposed to be the best doctor in town," says Lexie.

"I know," says Daniel, "She's up $#!+&(*^%@& creek."

Lexie asks, "$#!+&(*^%@&... Is that a surfer term?"


EJ wants Sami to get with the program. He takes her hand, "How about if I tell you how much I love you?" Sami breaks down in hysterical laughter. "Oh, very funny," says EJ.

John joins the group at the cop shop. He tells Roman and Abe he thinks Paul is a professional and very good at his job. If he delayed the Kiriakis shipments there must have been some kind of problem with them.

Abe asks, "Did you offer Mr. Hollingsworth a cash incentive to delay your rival's cargo."

"That would be bribery," drones John. Abe picks his dictionary up and looks under the B's.

Phillip walks in and announces he's there to see about the interests of Kiriakis Shipping. John says "No, you're here because you're the one who dropped the dime on Paul."

Phillip asks, "Are you admitting Paul is your patsy?"

"John asks, "Patsy... is that someone else I'm supposed to know?"

Bo asks, "Hey kid... is there anything you'd like me to get... your books... your laptop... your MP3 player... a pinch of ecstasy? " A nurse comes in and hauls Bo out. This allows Hope and Chelsea to share a tender moment. Hope barely mentions the fact that Chelsea murdered her son. Chelsea wants to say something about their relationship.

Lexie reminds Daniel he just scolded Bo for blaming himself and now Daniel is doing the same thing. Daniel reminds Lexie to shut up, "I have lost objectivity. I need to keep my distance."

Lexie asks Daniel, "Are you saying that you are becoming emotionally involved with Chelsea?"

Daniel admits it, "I've always been fascinated by reptiles."

Roman breaks up John and Phillip and tells them to let Abe and him handle it. John says he and Paul are honest and just trying to make a living. Paul steps up, "John, they offered me a deal if I flipped on you." John wants to see the hard evidence if the cops have it. Silence. "I didn't think so," says Paul. He leaves while Morgan stays behind and lectures Phillip for going after her father. She stomps out. Phillip follows.

Marlena suggests they go, but John zones in on Roman's nameplate and has a semi-memory. He says, "If you want to continue wasting taxpayer's money, that's on you, but just out of curiosity, ROMAN BRADY, don't you have some real criminals to be chasing instead of me?" John walks out. Marlena follows.

Lexie wonders if this means Daniel will be excusing himself from Chelsea's case. Daniel says yes. Lexie is shocked, "As Chief of Staph, I'll have to look into this. We've never had a doctor act in an ethical manner before." Daniel doesn't want Lexie to tell Chelsea the good news yet.

Chelsea says, "When I was sleeping just now, I had a dream about Zack. I dream about him a lot but this time it was different. I was driving a steam roller. We were playing hide and seek. He always hid under the bed, but this time when I found him I got a shooting pain in my heart. Like it just happened. I took away your child."

Hope insists that's not the case, "God had a plan for him. He used Zack to save Claire, just like they used a piece of your pancreas to save your dad."

Chelsea says when she learned she couldn't have kids the first person she thought of was Zack, "It feels like some kind of justice."

"NO," screams Hope, "You will never talk like that again, do you hear me? Not ever." Bo stands at the door and watches.

EJ says, "OK, you're right. Let's stop twisting ourselves into pretzel-like shapes and just start acting hostile toward one another, like any normal married couple."

Marlena and John stand outside the pub. Marlena wants to know what happened to John in the police station, "You zoned out. Something in that room triggered a memory for you. I know why. There was a time when you worked there."

John remains cynical, "Thanks for another stroll down memory lane, Blondie." He goes inside. Marlena follows like a lost puppy. Inside, she tells Sami she thinks John is beginning to remember something.

Morgan slams Phillip for trying to implicate her father. Phillip insists her father is guilty.

Hope says, "What has happened to you is not punishment for Zack's death." Chelsea thinks maybe she wants to be punished, so not being able to have kids feels right. Hope won't have it. She says this isn't punishment. We dive into the death spiral of icky dialog as Bo watches.

Marlena talks to Brady on the phone and starts to hand him off to John. John motions her away. Marlena insists. John takes the phone, "Yes... That's right. It's your fa... ther."

Phillip says he loves his father just like Morgan does, but he can see some of the unethical things his father is done and Morgan can't, "If your father can't tell right from wrong, then he is nothing but a spineless jerk."

Lexie comes in, announces the test results are back and tells Bo he has a clean bill of health, "Your bill of health might be clean but wait until you see your bill from the hospital."

Lexie takes Hope off to check her shoulder. Hope didn't need that shoulder anyway.

Chelsea asks, "You want to talk, Dad."

"Not to you."

John tells Brady he can't wait to see him. He hangs up, hands the phone back to Marlena and says, "It appears he is getting the treatment he needs, but speaking to him was like talking to a total stranger."

Marlena tells Sami even if that didn't trigger a memory for John, what happened at the police station gave her a lot of hope.

Morgan lectures Phillip and then walks off.

Daniel hands Lexie Chelsea's file. Lexie asks, "Are you at least going to say goodbye to her?" Daniel walks to the door, waits for an eternity and then walks off. Lexie follows. Hope comes back, opens the door and contemplates the touching father-daughter moment.

Thanks for the preview, Prevuze!

Line I liked best today:
Lexie is shocked, "As Chief of Staph, I'll have to look into this. We've never had a doctor act in an ethical manner before."

Who wouldn’t?

At least, Prevuze is paying attention.

"You may wind up in a cell with Lucas."

That does it. Paul folds like the Boston Red Sox in the 1986 World Series.


Once again, Prevuze proves to be an equal opportunity basher.

Phillip asks, "Are you admitting Paul is your patsy?"

"John asks, "Patsy... is that someone else I'm supposed to know?"


Very good Prevuze!!!

Lexie asks Daniel, "Are you saying that you are becoming emotionally involved with Chelsea?"

Daniel admits it, "I've always been fascinated by reptiles."


HOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I suppose we’re supposed to find it touching that Hope doesn’t think Chelsea’s apparent inability to have children is punishment for squishing Zach. Instead, the viewers are being punished for watching this stuff. It’s even worse knowing that Chelsea will find herself knocked up in no time. Can anyone of this soap say CONDUM?

Great Prevuze and fantastic photos and captions!!!!!

Oh please!!! Hope getting all hysterical because Chelsea can't have kids?
Are we supposed to believe this is the SAME Hope who almost divorced Bo because he felt sorry for Chelsea?
The SAME Hope who was ready to nail Chelsea and send her to prison for the rest of her miserable life for what was AN ACCIDENT?
The SAME Hope who told Chelsea to her face she would NEVER be a part of their family, never see her sister Ciara (okay well so far that part is true) and NEVER be forgiven for taking away her (obviously) favorite child?

Yeah.

"Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darlin' wails in the background" HAHAHAHA Prevuze creates such descriptive passages I'll be humming that song during the big confrontation.

Can anybody watching this possibly believe Dr. Surfer would fall for Chelsea?? What with all the hot young surfer/doctor groupies he'd have after him? Puhleeze!!!

And I'm with you, Deb, on the constant unbelievable Saint Hope they're always pushing at us.

Glad to get the latest Jr. and Belle update, C fish. And thanks for the great Monday wake-up today Prevuze!

Prevuisms to add spice to a couple of segments that actually sound like they have decent DOOL dialog. Will wonders never cease?


LOL at the Payla picture and their fond thoughts of Rolf. Bulldog, you KNOW that's what co-workers would actually be thinking through some of these scenes. HAHAHA

My favorite today:

John and Victor stand face to face they slowly approach each other in silence. Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darlin' wails in the background.

And it’s DOOL which is on at “High Noon”. [At least here in Central Daylight Savings Time.]

Oh, the drama.
Oh, the synchronosity.
Oh, the not-so-hidden sub-text. Oh, stop me now…….

Anybody placing bets on whether or not Lucas shows up at EJami's table in the middle of the INS interview?

A little more Sami/EJ action would help this snoozer of an episode.

I'm pretty much with Marlena & the audience on this one, & this bears repeating since I did LOL . . .

"What about us," asks Marlena, "Do we deserve to suffer?"

Someone from the audience screams, "What about us..."


The audience is getting better lines than some of the characters! And again, I'm grateful for the great pics & captions.

Wow sounds like a great episode.

I wonder what Daniel has done in his past that makes him feel like he is not a good enough doctor? Who else has he sterilized???? Love it!

Hello. Am I dreaming, or did I read that Lexie is actually the one that did Chelsea's surgery. If anyone is to blame, it'd be her. But let's face it, folks. Some people get infections from surgery. Your appendix ruptures, and even if they do a great job of cleaning out all the mess, you can STILL get the infection. My step-son was extremely sick from his appendix rupturing, was in the hospital for a week, out a week or two, and back in for another week and a second round of antibiotics from the infection that came from the ruptured appendix, and then it was over. Do you think his doctor blamed himself? No. And neither did we. That's life. Get over it. It's not like they used non-sterilized surgical instruments with flesh-eating bacteria on them. Not this time anyway.

And get over Hope bashing. Everyone can have a change of heart. Although it'd be a little more believable except for the apparent over-acting of these lines. Let's get back to some EJami.

Prevuze II?

I have a different excuse today. I actually had to get my face out of my computer and go out into the world and interact with... uh... what do they call those carbon units that populate the earth? Oh, yeah, people.

When I was 17 my appendix ruptured and massive infection. The doc told my mother no kids in my future. 3 birth kids and 3 adopted later......The whole Chelsea thing is so stupid. She CAN have kids-how fast can you say invitro? That's pretty scary as she could have 5 of the ugliest/dorkiest babies ever!

Let AVA go away. Hate, hate, hate that story line and DVR quickly through it.

I had a near smidgen of respect for Daniel standing up for himself with Bo. Despite my hatred of the character, I don't think this is his fault, nor is it the fault of the attending surgeon. Infections can happen and if they go unreported (like Chelsea did) it can lead to this.

But then he turns around and tells Lexie he does feel guilty (sigh, whatever) and now he's too close to Chelsea. He's finally going to remove himself from her case but Mr. Principles can't work up the balls to tell her himself. Does the show expect me to root for them? I'd take Nick over Daniel any damn day.

Best thing I can say about this epi is that we didn't here from that freak Ava.

So we got Brady coming back. How nice. He and John can compare notes.

Wish good looking doctors fell in love with their patients in the real world as much as they do in soapland.

I can't imagine any real-life* doctor saying something like "this did some bad damage" and then standing there staring when everyone kept asking what it was. I'd put up with a doctor like that for about two seconds!

*I know, real-life/DOOL. HAHAHA

That would be alright to have a doctor like that because you could make millions off the malpractice lawsuit.

"It feels like some kind of justice."

I dunno, if Hope agreed with her that'd be pretty ruthless. Is there anything she could have said after Chelsea willingly risked her to save her husband?

In the other hand are Chelsea and Hope allowed to have a conversation NOT involving Zack.

I agree with Tripp, how is anyone blaming the doctor? He is the only one who was against the idea. Ah well.

And where the hell did they stash Nick anyway.
