The Lava Lamp

Abe is on the phone with the DA, "We don't have enough evidence to charge John Black. Paul Hollingsworth goes in front of the grand jury soon. We'll see how that goes. The case against him isn't exactly airtight. It was, but then the SPD got hold of it and blew it to smithereens."

Lexie walks in as Abe finishes up. She came on an impulse. She says she had a bad time at work today and wonders if Abe has a few minutes for her.

Bo comes in and gives Chelsea a stuffed doggie. He asks how she's doing. She says she's decided to live in the moment. Bo says he called Billie and they think it might help if Marlena talked to her. Chelsea shrugs it off, "I'm already screwed up enough." She wants to deal with it on her own. Hope comes in carrying some strange kid.

Daniel is boozing it up at the pub. Kate joins him, "Shouldn't you be monitoring Chelsea?"

Daniel says, "I don't think there will be a problem with Chelsea, considering I'm no longer on her case. Lexie's in charge now. If you rush over there, you might get to see her one last time."

Tony is walking through the pub talking on his cell phone. Anna stands up, bumps into him and Tony goes head over heels, "Some klutz just bumped into me."

Anna huffs, "That's rude even for you."

Stephanie comes in and puts her hands over Max' eyes, "Guess Who..."

Max thinks... "Beyoncé!"

"You wish," says Stephanie. She tells him her folks are exhausted, "They went straight to bed when they got home. Well, technically, mom went to bed and Dad hit the couch." She's there to thank him for saving her life, "You really are my hero. You do know that, right?"

Max says, "And you're much hotter than Beyoncé, anyway."

"And you're much blinder than Mr. Magoo," says Stephanie. Smoochies.

That's what Max calls gratitude, "If you keep thanking me you'll have to thank me all night." He goes to find out where Pete is so he can get some time off.

Tony backpedals. He says he should look where he is going. Anna is surprised there is no condensation on his part. "My mind is elsewhere," says Tony.

"What else is new," asks Anna." Tony sits down with her and says he's concerned about Kate. Anna scowls.

Kate wants to know why Daniel took himself off Chelsea's case. He says he can't talk about it, "But I can tell you Chelsea will need all the support she can get."

Lexie tells Abe about Chelsea. Her heart goes out to her. Lexie thanks God for Abe and Theo. Abe wants her to go to dinner with him, "We need more us time and I think we should start right now." Smooch.

The nurse comes into Chelsea's room. Time for more tests. If she aces them she might get to go home today.

The blood drains from Chelsea's face, "Where's Daniel?"

Tony is worried about Kate because she's upset about Chelsea. Anna asks, "Is there something going on between you and Kate?"

Max is back, "Pete has arrived. Now you can start thanking me for saving your life."

Daniel says he can't tell Kate anything, "Ethically my hands are tied."

"Sounds exciting," says Kate, "How would you like to have the rest of you tied? You're just as concerned as I am, aren't you?"

Tony wishes Anna would give him more credit, "I love you and only you. Don't you know that?" Silence. "A yes or no would suffice."

"Yes."

"And do you love me?"

"Do you have to ask?" Translation: Keep your options open.

Kate says she is sorry she was hard on Daniel, "But when it comes to my family, I'm a little nuts."

"You must have a very big family," says Daniel. Kate thanks him for everything he did for Chelsea and leaves.

Daniel contemplates his booze, "It just wasn't enough."

The nurse tells Chelsea Daniel isn't on call. Chelsea thinks it's weird he left without saying goodbye.

Max ushers Stephanie into his messed up room. He straightens things up and says he wasn't ready for an impromptu rendezvous, "But I have a lava lamp."

"I don't think we need it," says Stephanie. Hot kisses. "Wherever you are is the most romantic place on earth." They dive in for more.

Tony and Anna smooch and giggle. Tony hopes that kiss helps her understand his feelings. Kate is nothing to him. He's in love with Anna.

Daniel pounds them down and remembers his conversation with Lexie. He turns to the bartender, "I'll have another. Just keep 'em coming."

Bo paces. He sits down and ponders, then gets back up and remembers his conversation with Hope.

Chelsea picks up her phone. She calls Daniel and asks why he didn't say goodbye.

Max and Stephanie get serious. They also get undressed. We get an anatomy lesson with uber-close-ups of body parts.

We pan across the floor strewn with clothes and roll on up to Max and Stephanie in bed. Max debriefs. He says he's never felt more connected to anyone. Stephanie feels the same way. Max says, "Now that we love each other, the only thing standing in front of us is our future."

"And some really bad dialogue," says Stephanie. Round two.

Daniel says he just got caught up in things. He tells Chelsea he's no longer her doctor, "I handed the case over to Dr. Carver."

Chelsea gasps, "But I don't want to die."

"I'm a surgeon," says Daniel.

Chelsea asks, "Then how come Lexie was the one who operated on me?" Chelsea thanks him for everything he did for her and her dad. We have an uncomfortable goodbye. Chelsea hangs up and makes another call.

A phone rings in the den of sin. Stephanie calls things to a halt. She just has to pick up because it might be her mom or dad. Or a wrong number. She looks at the caller ID, "Hey Chelse, what's up."

"I need to talk," says Chelsea, "What's up over there?"

"Max."

Abe and Lexie have come to the pub. Lexie thinks her new job is a lot of work. Abe apologizes for his crazy hours. Lexie doesn't want their family to suffer because they both work long hours. They decide they have to make time for themselves.

Kate has joined Anna and Tony. She's going to be in the commercial. Tony tells Anna he wants Kate to become the next Martha Stewart. Anna laughs, "No offense, but you're not very homey. But I would like to see them put you in prison for a while."

Kate thinks it's a great concept. Anna says she has a new high profile account herself. Tony would love to hear about it.

Chelsea tells Stephanie Daniel dumped her. She cries and thinks she probably scared him away, "Or maybe he thinks I am damaged goods now that I can't have kids."

Stephanie takes the bull by the horns, "I'll march downstairs and tell him off."

Chelsea puts two and two together, "You're at the pub and Daniel is downstairs. That means you are upstairs. Am I interrupting anything?"

"No."

The long lost Nick walks into Chelsea's room.

Bo wanders and rubs his pancreas. Hope comes up holding that strange kid. She tells him what happened to Chelsea isn't his fault. Bo decides to blame himself anyway.

Anna hesitates. Kate decides to give them a moment alone. Anna tells Tony she's working for John Black.

Kate joins Lexie. She asks about Chelsea. Lexie says she has been though a lot. Kate thinks there is more to the story. Lexie tells her Daniel is off the case. Kate says she already knows that. Lexie breaks every ethical rule in the book, "Between you and me, Daniel felt he was becoming too emotionally involved."

Max and Stephanie come downstairs. Stephanie stomps up to Daniel, "You and I need to have a little talk. She tells him Chelsea's feelings are hurt. She says Chelsea is vulnerable right now and needs to be around people she trusts. Max pulls her away and tells her to think about what she is doing. Stephanie goes back to lecture Daniel.

"With friends like you," says Daniel, "she won't need me."

"That's where you are wrong," says Stephanie. Max pulls her away again.

Anna says the account with John is top secret. She thinks she has told him too much already. Tony wants to stop the competition between them. "I'm not saying yes or no," says Anna, "but we can discuss it over dinner." Scratch that – Kate comes up and tells Tony it's time to go to their meeting.

Anna huffs and says to Kate, "At least you're used to working nights."

Tony excuses himself, "I'm sorry I can't take you to dinner, but this is business."

Anna gets on the phone, "Yes, I know what time it is."

Chelsea tells Nick she's getting out today or tomorrow, and then she tells him she can't have kids. "I'm so sorry," says Nick, "Are you OK?"

"I don't think it's quite hit me yet," says Chelsea. She asks how that makes him feel. He tells her to forget about him. This is about her. She means everything to him. Hugs.

Bo obsesses. Hope comes up and we have a family hug.

Nick kisses Chelsea. Hugs. Stares.

Daniel slams down another.

Abe and Lexie kiss outside the pub.

Stephanie sits on Max' bed and huffs. Max moves in. Stephanie forgets about Chelsea. Round three.

Tony tells Anna he wants Kate to become the next Martha Stewart. Anna laughs, "No offense, but you're not very homey. But I would like to see them put you in prison for a while."

That Prevuism is very, very Anna. Also love her comment about Kate being used to working nights.

I'm surprises that Kate hasn't tried to jump onto the new Jawn. He seems to be just her type of man. She would have to pull that succubus Nicole off of him though.

Love your naughty censored link. Very appropriate for Uncle Max.

Don't think I want an anatomy lesson using Max and Stephanie as models. Guess that's better than close ups of Patch and Kayla body parts though.

"I need to talk," says Chelsea, "What's up over there?"

"Max."


Ok, I had to pick myself off the floor after reading that one.

Tony tells Anna he wants Kate to become the next Martha Stewart. Anna laughs, "No offense, but you're not very homey. But I would like to see them put you in prison for a while."

Let’s think about this. Kate in the same prison as Lucas and Carmine would have lots of possibilities. Kate’s daughter did Chelsea’s boyfriend so maybe Kate could do Lucas’ boyfriend. Could work.

Lexie breaks every ethical rule in the book, "Between you and me, Daniel felt he was becoming too emotionally involved."

Ethics? On DOOL, they don’t need no stinkin’ ethics. Ethics could get in the way of a fabulous storyline. Wait a second…on DOOL, they don’t need no fabulous storylines. After all, Prevuze is out in cyberspace making this tripe sound entertaining.

Anna huffs and says to Kate, "At least you're used to working nights."

Meow!!! Anna wins points for that one.

Chelsea is such an idiot. She’s going to dump super nice guy Nick for a surfer dude doctor. What about the $50,000 Nick handed to Kate for Chelsea’s education? He should have kept the money.

Loved the censored link!!! While they were on screen, Belle and Shawn were an absolute bore. However, as chronicled by Prevuze and Prevuze’s intrepid band of cub reporters, their off-screen adventures are high comedy. Great work guys!!!

Ditto to all the above comments. Great Prevuze, but the show sounds like a crushing bore.

Lexie breaks every ethical rule in the book. And that was obvious when she told Abe about Chelsea's "problem". So much for HIPPA.

Max says, "Now that we love each other, the only thing standing in front of us is our future." "And some really bad dialogue," says Stephanie.

LOLOLOL How true, how true. It's like the DROOLing writers have lost the ability to craft really romantic, sexy scenes. Of course, with Maxephanie they are working with two characters who have zero chemistry.

Good work all!

At least there's some sex in this one, even if it IS uncle/niece sex by the light of a lava lamp. (The censored link was a jaw-dropper -- followed by a shriek of laughter!)

Sounds like another episode saved by Anna, Belle's adventures at sea, and Prevuze.

Sorry. You'll have to talk to Google/Blogger about that one.

Wow! I can't wait to watch this episode. I cannot believe Lexie and her mouth -- telling Kate!!!! (Does she think a malpractice suit will bring in more bodies to the hospital?)

Stephanie - I am actually sort of surprised she went off on Daniel. I guess she is still running off the adrenaline from her wild night with Max.

Nick - Why are they writing him like that? It is almost like he is an afterthought in all this. I am not a fan of him with Chelsea...but I still think he should have been way more present in all this.

Daniel - knocking them back...LOL..I am sure there will be tons more booze in his future not that Kate knows he is emotionally involved.

Just loving this whole storyline so much...

The chuckles started right off the bat with "The case against him isn't exactly airtight. It was, but then the SPD got hold of it and blew it to smithereens." HAHAHAHA

The way Daniel is tossing back the booze I hope nobody needs his pancreas at the moment.

Prevuze was at its naughty best today. I'm so glad I saw the censored link at home and not at work! Great pictures, too. Thanks. :D

Applecheeks is right about Stephanie and Max having zero chemistry. In the video preview that shows them making out, Stephanie looks like she's about to bust out laughing.

The whole deal with Chelsea's fallopian tubes being damaged so she can't have kids...isn't that what they use IVF for? She still has ovaries and a uterus, so she should still be able to have kids. They're just setting up future embryo mix-up and failed adoption stories, because no kid on the show is ever born to and stays with both biological parents.

This is in regards to Prevuze II...Chelsea is dreaming when Dr. Miracle Workers says he wants to be more than just her doctor, right?

What's with the meds Ava is on? Are they making her psychotic and her daddy was supplying them?

It has to be a dream. The man was drunk off his ass the night before...there is no way he is ready to make any statements like that. He probably will barely be able to face her.

OpenID tripp3235 said...

Nope, sorry Robin. I think they are now suddenly turning Chelsea's painful crush into a more painful romance with Dr. Statutory.

What ticks me off is the Chick romance is being written like it's only about one character not two. I'm glad to see Nick in the episode, but irritated he's brought in just to make Chelsea feel "a little better."

Chelsea and Daniel is one of the few things that will probably make me change the channel for a bit. I can suffer though much, but not this. It's times like this that makes me appreciate how much Prevuze is willing to suffer.

So thank you Prevuze.

Blah episode. Poor Nick, having to compete with everything that wanders into Chelsea's gaze. Least I can't fault Nick for this, at all.

Poor Nick is right. Chelsea must be the most fickle little idiot to "grace" this show since Belle. What's even worse is that Daniel actually returns the feelings of a girl who could be his daughter. Why not pair him with someone like Kate or Nicole? Their characters would be a much better fit for the supposedly worldly, intelligent, and experienced doctor. The only couple that disgusts me nearly as much is Stephanie and Uncle Max.

Ironic that the doctor that gave Chelsea a hard time for being drunk at a critical moment is now becoming Dr. Drunk. Other than the fact that it looks like a father and his young daughter making out I think they are made for each other.

Note to google/blogger when you add an edit feature please also add a roll the eyes smiley, we need it for this show.

Yes anon, that would be perfect. Nicole would be perfect for Dr. McAwesome. However they need a second lady to enter the triangle as Dr. McAwesome doesn't look like he fights over the ladies.

Heh, despite not being against Stephanie and Max except in the way where they bore me relentlessly, I am annoyed and a little squicked by Chelsea and the good doctor. A vomit smiley would work too.

It's times like this that makes me appreciate how much Prevuze is willing to suffer.

We belong to an obscure religious sect, Opus DOOL, which requires sacrifice in the form of sleeping on a bed of nails, fasting, wearing of a cliece and, the most sadistic sacrifice of all, self-Doolification on a daily basis. Suffering is our lot in life.

Max? blegh. I'm more of a Lucas-EJ type. How about Lucas and EJ chopping wood up at that Salem cabin? that should be a gratitutious shirtless scene those DOOL writers can work into the recycled dialog.

Anyway, thanks Prevuze for awesome recap after recap. I especially liked the "Censored" link today, it was hilarious!
