All Boobs And Hair – No Substance
Ava thanks him and asks if the pub has Wi-Fi. Pete says they do. As Pete leaves, Ava opens her computer. She picks up her drink and looks at it, "Hello, old friend."
Morgan goes over a paper she has written. She hands it to Max. Max thinks she misspelled "personnel." Morgan worries about her grade. She's already turned the paper in, so it's too late to make changes. She tells Max her professor is meeting her at the pub to discuss it at Mark and David walk in with the video equipment. Morgan wonders, "Where's Stephanie."
Stephanie wheels Kayla down to see L'il Joe. Patch joins them and says the car is out front. Kayla goes off the deep end, "I can't do it. I can't leave him." Inside the nursery L'il Joe asks the nurse to tell them to leave, "With all that blubbering, a guy can't get any sleep around here."
Marlena barks orders into a phone. EJ comes in complaining about the traffic, "Is Samantha here? I'll go up then."
Marlena says, "She's with Lucas and the twins. I wish you wouldn't go up. With three infants, she already has her hands full."
Chloe and Phillip romp. Nicole busts into the room, "Phillip, we really need to talk about... OH! That is not right."
Max tells Morgan Stephanie is with her parents. Mark and David check the lighting and start the taping. Mark recognizes Max as the big famous racecar driver, "I haven't seen you race in a while. What are you doing now?"
Helpful Pete comes up to Max and asks him if he will fill in for him tomorrow. "This is where you work," gasps Mark. Max 'splains that his family owns the bar and he is filling in. He suggests Mark concentrate on Morgan.
Mark asks Morgan about the internship. Morgan says the best part was working with such a creative genius. She also enjoyed working with Tony, who happens to be on his honeymoon right now. Max wonders how long his marriage to Anna will last, "Anna's a little high maintenance." Max decides he'd better get down to the docks and clean up after the big mess down there.
Mark can't believe Max has to do a menial job like that, "They said you were the next Jeff Gordon."
Max reminds Mark he and Jeff have won exactly the same number of races this year – zero, "Besides, is it true you 'accidentally' left your camera on in the women's locker room after their softball practice?" Mark gets the idea and backs off.
Max wonders if John is guilty. Morgan wouldn't be surprised. Max wonders if that means Morgan's dad is guilty, too.
Ava stares at her computer screen, "EJ WELLS INDICTED FOR FRAUD!" Ava remembers EJ telling her he would be her lawyer.
EJ tells Marlena he wants to go see his son. Marlena thinks EJ is pleased Lucas walked in on his romp with Sami. She thinks he hopes this will end Lucas' relationship with Sami.
Chloe tells Nicole to get out. Nicole tells Phillip, "I thought with your money you could buy somebody attractive." That does it. Chloe jumps out of bed. Nicole grimaces and tells her she should get dressed. Mommy Nicole orders Chloe to get out.
Patch and Stephanie tell Kayla they can come back later. Kayla don' wanna hear it. "We have a surprise for you at home," says Patch, "A nice little jacket with arms that tie in the back." Kayla stares at L'il Joe and zones. Patch walks off and talks to one of the medical personnel. He comes back and says they can go inside. He and Stephanie wheel Kayla in.
Kayla stands by the incubator, "Hey, little guy. Your momma's here now."
"You must be lost," says L'il Joe, "This isn't the psych ward."
Chloe and Nicole bicker. Nekkid Phillip jumps out of bed. That stops Nicole in her tracks, "What a waste! You could do so much better. Chloe is all boobs and hair – no substance." Phillip hauls Nicole out.
AS she struggles, Nicole warns him, "Call your doctor and get your shots."
EJ asks why he would have gotten Lucas out if he considered him a threat. Marlena has been wondering that herself. She asks if EJ was happy when Lucas walked in on their roll in the hay. EJ claims he wasn't. EJ insists Sami and Lucas will not get back together. Marlena thinks that will happen in time. EJ asks, "Would you give up on John?"
"Then I won't give up and Samantha either."
They all look at L'il Joe. Patch says, "Its' a good thing he looks like your Mama." Stephanie introduces herself. She promises to give him tips on how to handle Patch and Kayla. Patch is glad there is another guy around the house, "I'm tired of being surrounded by all this estrogen."
They let Kayla touch him. Kayla tells L'il Joe he gave them a big scare and he has to get better. Patch assures her L'il Joe will be coming home, "Tell her, Joe."
"Yeah," says L'il Joe, "It's probably unavoidable."
Patch wants him to be a ball player. "I want him to be a racecar driver," says Stephanie, "Then maybe someday he can be as big a failure as Max and me."
It's time to say goodbye. Kayla says, "Sweet dreams. I love you. We'll be back."
"Take your time," says L'il Joe.
EJ doesn't think Lucas will take Sami back, but he has no intention of interfering. He wants Sami to choose him of her own free will. Marlena asks if he thinks John is guilty. EJ says what he thinks doesn't matter.
Back at the pub, Ava reads about EJ's misadventures. Morgan worries. Nicole walks in and bumps into the camera guy. Ava orders a mojito. Nicole overhears the order and decides that's what she'll have, too. She sees Ava sitting there, "Hey... I lined my dog's litter box with you – I mean your picture in the newspaper. You are the mob princess, right? I hope your old man left you a big inheritance." Nicole rambles about Pookie and admires Ava's shoes. She thinks they would make a good pair and should have a girl trip to Chicago to buy shoes.
"We don't even know each other," says Ava.
We both have great taste in shoes and drinks," says Nicole, "That sounds like the start of a great friendship." Nicole sits down, "Pay for these drinks girl and let's get to know each other."
Chloe thanks Phillip for sticking up for her. "She can be a real bitch," says Phillip.
"That would explain why her best friend is a dog," says Chloe.
"She and Ava just met," says Phillip, "I don't think they're best friends yet."
Chloe likes that Phillip defended her. Phillip thinks maybe Chloe shouldn't leave. "I don't want to put you in an awkward position," says Chloe.
"Sounds like fun," says Phillip, "Are you gonna make me beg you to stay?" He takes a knee and begs. Chloe agrees to stay for now. Phillip thinks this calls for something special. Chloe likes the way he thinks. Round three.
Nicole checks out Pete's butt. She would like to indulge, but will wait until her divorce is final. Ava guesses Nicole is married to Victor since she introduced herself as a Kiriakis. Ava says she's not married. She was supposed to get married to Patch, but he jilted her.
"All men are scum," says Nicole. She gives Pete's butt another glance, "Except the cute ones, of course." Ava and Nicole decide to make up for lost time together.
Stephanie and Patch guide blindfolded Kayla through a hallway. They open a door and welcome Kayla to her new fully decorated apartment.
Patch gives her the tour. The place has everything. It's a good thing Kayla actually earns a paycheck so they can afford it. Stephanie picked out the couch. She says she talked Patch out of getting a big ugly leather one with cup holders in the arms. She also talked him out of a pool table. Patch says the bearskin rug from Saskatchewan will arrive later this week, "I'm just kidding. I'm going to have the bear delivered and skin it myself. Can I at least hang my Chicago Bears pennant?"
"Sure," says Kayla, "The way they played last season they need all the support they can get."
Stephanie gets a text message. She remembers she's supposed to be at the pub, and leaves.
"OK," says Patch, "She's gone. Let's have the locks changed."
Kayla thinks the place is perfect, "It will be a great place to have my breakdown."
Ava finishes another drink as she fills Nicole in on her drug situation. Ava tells Nicole she hasn't dated anyone since Patch.
Nicole gasps, "It's been that long since you... you know... don't you get urges?"
"Only for Patch."
"I bet we can find you a guy with two good eyes," says Nicole, "I can be your wing woman. You are a real stud magnet. Speaking of studs here comes one right now."
EJ walks up. Nicole introduces him. What a coincidence, Ava tells Nicole EJ is her lawyer too.
Marlena comes in to see Roman. She says she's there to talk about Sami. However, they talk about John. Roman says the John Black she fell in love with is not coming back and it's time she accepted that.
Marlena believes he is coming back. Roman asks if she wants to waste her life chasing a fantasy. Marlena can't give up. She thinks there is something on the disc that will give John what he needs. Roman reminds her of the little drug problem on John's ship. Marlena thinks the drugs were planted.
The conversation moves to Sami. "What did she do now," asks Roman.
"How much time do you have," asks Marlena.
Nicole and Ava tell EJ they go way back. How they met is one of their many secrets. EJ joins them because they are beautiful and drunk. One out of two ain't bad.
Professor DiCarlo tells Morgan she has nothing to worry about. Mark talks about his script for the Salem film festival. Stephanie runs in and apologies for being late. Morgan notices Nick's picture on the front page of the school paper. Max scowls. "The guy is going places," says DiCarlo, "And so are the two of you. If you keep up this level of work you'll be on the fast track to successful careers." Max stares.
DiCarlo still has to get forms from their supervisors but he thinks their work has paid off. Max steps up and meets the professor. Stephanie shows him her grade. She senses something is wrong and takes Max aside to talk. She asks if he's coming to the big dinner in Nick's honor. Max dunno. Stephanie asks him to come. She says the dinner is as much for Max as Nick.
Nicole asks about her divorce case. EJ says he has a preliminary hearing date set up. Nicole leaves. EJ tells Ava he has set up a plea bargain meeting with the DA. Ava feels bad about what happened. EJ thinks the DA will be receptive because Ava was drugged when she did all those nasty things.
Phillip and Chloe walk in. Morgan watches.
Roman is shocked, "Oh man... Sleeping with EJ." Marlena tells him to go easy on her. He wonders if Lucas will take her back. Marlena is sure EJ will not give up on Sami.
"How does this girl get into situations like this," asks Roman.
"Bad parenting," says Marlena. She wonders if Sami will lose both EJ and Lucas.
Patch asks about dinner. Kayla isn't hungry. She wants to get back to the hospital. Patch says they will go after they eat. He wants her to take it easy. He sits her down. He wants the first night in their new home to be special. Kayla thinks it will never be home without their baby.
Patch reassures her, "He'll be here soon. And then we can ship him off to the baby sitter of our choice and ignore him for all the Days Of Our Lives."
